SDC: August Guest Designer


We are excited to welcome back one of our guest designers for the month of August.  Here's a refresher on more about Gay Peplow.

My name is Gay Peplow and you will find me mostly on my blog http://mustavcoffee-craftymusings.blogspot.co.uk/. I live in Surrey in the UK, have a very patient husband , two sons, a daughter-in-Law and two grand daughters. 

Since I was a very small child, I’ve loved the feel of paint in between my fingers, discovering clay was just magic, squidging it is a memory that has stayed with me since school. But I enjoy many forms of art, lino cutting, making 3D models even transforming the back of a lorry into the sea and then the following year into a city skyline for my son’s school fete!

I have had my blog now since 2007 and have really enjoyed making cards and linking up with the lovely crafty people I have encountered. I was on the design Team of the Craft Barn for a couple of years and really enjoyed it. My favourite style is probably clean and simple but it is also the most challenging, to achieve balance and place the elements of a design can take hours.

Stop on over to say hi and visit her throughout the month to check out her designer entries.
