About Denise Holmes

I started crafting in my teens really, making old-school scrapbooks of pop stars, and learning to crochet.

About 17 years ago now, I decided to make my own Christmas cards; I bought an old-fashioned Santa rubber stamp, some inks and embossing powder, and I WAS HOOKED from then on! I ventured into scrapbooking and mixed media, and was lucky enough to join some design teams, and soon started to teach scrapbooking classes at retreats.

The one thing I love about the crafting world is the many lovely, like-minded friends I have made, and learned from. It's lovely when you teach a class and share techniques, and see how people put their own spin on things - you all learn from each other! I literally would be lost without crafting, and am always snipping, sticking, inking and hooking!

I really enjoy all papercrafts, including folding techniques, rubber stamping, making lovely scrapbook pages and cardmaking… as well as the odd MDF project and crochet blanket of course!
