My name is Cayleigh May. I am originally from Hull in the North of England but now I live in the Sunny South near Portsmouth. I have been crafting for longer than I can remember & I’m not sure what I would do without it. I used to think that handmade cards were cheaper than shop bought, that’s no longer true-but crafting is still cheaper than therapy! I think creating is good for the soul and it’s even better when you can share that creativity with others.
I do not know how I would get through the day without my boyfriend Marc, my beautiful mamma and my doggy LexieLoo. I love them all and they make my life happy.
What else should you know about me?! I walk into things every day & so normally am injured or bruised up! I am either hungry or full- there is no middle ground. I like McFlurrys with Toffee Sauce. I have a slight Penguin obsession and I live in CayleighWorld. It's a happy place-you should pop by sometime. <3
Why Stampin’ Up!?
I first heard about Stampin’ Up! About four years ago. I went to a workshop and was blown away by the fact they had everything I had dreamed of… Quality stamps, inks that were not dried out, and even better, everything matched! I realised I would no longer have to spend hours and even weeks trying to find some ribbon that matched my card and I could stamp in colours other than black! That workshop I bought one punch. I was too overwhelmed by the ideas in my head to make a decision on what else to buy!
Other the next few days I created my wish list and it was HUGE. At the back of the catalogue was some information about becoming a demonstrator and I saw that you got 20% off. My punch arrived and I joined the next day! I never had any intention of running classes, I just wanted that discount! However, over time people kept asking me to help teach them & while I didn’t think I could, I finally agreed to a small class around my dining room table. That first class was over 3 years ago and I haven’t looked back! Now I run regular classes and retreats and I have my own team of passionate papercrafters.
I think life is what you make it and sometimes you need to put yourself out of your comfort zone to achieve your dreams. And at the end of the day, who doesn’t want discount?!
