Introducing the 2017-2018 Silhouette UK Design Team - Janet Packer

Hello Silhouette UK Blog Readers,

I'm back! My name is Janet Packer and I'm super excited to be back for another year on the Silhouette UK Design Team. I had a wonderful time on the Team last year and really enjoyed learning from, and sharing with, the wider Silhouette Community.  I've included a few of my favourite tutorials here from the past year.

Make Baby Shaker Cards

I've always loved creating and in years past have enthusiastically embraced crafts as diverse as painting, woodwork, upholstery, toymaking, sewing, and dressmaking, as well as all manner of papercrafts and design. I've also adored spending time encouraging my now grown children to create for themselves from an early age.

Cut Felt with Silhouette Cameo® 3

Purchasing a Silhouette Cameo five years ago re-kindled my creativity and I loved its combination of technology and creative potential. I'm the proud owner of a Cameo 3, a Curio, and a Hobby Jack heat press as well as my original Cameo, and use one or other to make just about anything from paper, card, fabric or vinyl.

Cover Eggs with Washi Paper

I'm now live in North East Scotland with my husband and shaggy dog, Beckett, although I come from the Midlands of England and have also lived in London and Northern California. Away from crafting, I enjoy photography, live music, good food and the lovely Scottish countryside.

I blog in my own right too under the name of Crafting Quine. Join me for extra details and comment. I'm also loving the fun interaction on Instagram.
