Ahead of Craft Day next Tuesday, we thought we’d get you in the mood and caught up with one of our special guests, Sizzix designer Fiona Williams.
Here’s what she had to say about Craft Day and the fantastic Sizzix Eclipse Today’s Special Value offer that will be available on the day…
What do you think sets Sizzix products apart from other brands?
At Sizzix we pride ourselves on moving with current trends and providing exactly what a crafter wants by releasing new product designs and technologies twice a year, in collaboration with industry-leading designers. You’re sure to find just what you want and need from Sizzix whether you are a beginner or advanced crafter – there is something for everyone.
What is your favourite element of the Sizzix Eclips machine?
It’s hard to choose what I like most about the Eclips as I love it all! If I had to choose I would say having lots of different designs on one cartridge at my finger tips.
What are your favourite craft projects to create and why?
There is simply nothing more enjoyable than creating a personal card for someone special; family members or a cherished friend. Seeing their face when they open the card makes everything worth while!
How did you get in to crafting?
I think everyone is a crafter – you start as a child and I truly believe it never leaves you. The passion is just rekindled when you start doing it again.
Where do you draw your inspiration from?
Everywhere – family, friends, my surroundings and also the seasons, which I think is reflected in the colour pallets for papers! It really does depend on what I am working on at the time!
What do you think are the hot trends in crafting right now?
There’s so much but I would have to say Sizzix! We have the truly amazing Eclips machine, which will be a must for any crafter even if they already have a Big Shot. It’s not here to replace but to simply add to a crafter’s collection.
What are you most looking forward to on craft day?
Craft Day has a certain buzz! Everyone is so excited in every studio – guest and presenters! There’s so much going on during the day, it just makes me want to buy everything for my craft studio!
What are your hobbies?
At the moment I would have to say our new family member Rosie (pet Labrador). She joined our family just over a week ago now and boy is she energetic! I am really looking forward to scrapbooking her growing up! I also really love reading, music, movies, shopping and almost everything creative!
