Guest DT member for July is Julia Wyatt

Hi, I’m Julia.

I am married to John and we live in Little Billing Northampton.

I have been crafting since my early 20’s having turned my hand to all crafts including knitting, using a knitting machine (I owned two of those at the time) and a sewing machine.  I have also in the past taught 3D Decoupage at Northampton College as an evening class and also in my own home. I have always loved making greetings cards and from time to time I sell them too. As time has gone on we have seen a big change in the crafting market with more possibilities being available.  My passion now is stamping, stencilling, colouring and painting.


My talents as a crafter have grown and grown over the years.  Although the last 12 months has been really hard for all of us, if there is anything good that came out of it I would say it has given me time to learn more arty techniques.

At the beginning of lockdown, I set myself a challenge to join a Design Team. My dream came true and I have joined 3 Design teams on short term contracts over the past 12 months and have enjoyed every minute of it.  Now I am lucky enough to have been offered a place here at Lavinia Stamps on their Guest Design Team.

I am very much looking forward to sharing my creations with you using these fabulous stamps and products from Lavinia. I have been collecting Lavinia stamps now for a few years now so I have quite a collection.   I love sharing my knowledge and will always try and answer any questions for you.  I don’t know everything but what I don’t know someone else will, that is the beauty of sharing our knowledge. The most important thing is to just have fun.
