www.makeyourown.org.uk is managed and loved by me, Vicky. As a child I loved painting, cutting and sticking but my serious craft hobby didn’t develop until I was teenager when my mum bought me a card making kit for my birthday. I was absolutely hooked and spent every penny I had on paper stacks, embellishments and card blanks. My love affair with paper is on-going but I now divide my time between card making and many other types of crafts such as painting, sewing and anything else that happens to take my fancy. These days I can often be found at craft fairs and events selling my handmade goodies or at the local charity shop buying stuff that no one else wants so that I can make it over!

This site captures the endeavours of myself and some of my crafty friends. All of our tutorials are tried and tested and may be a little rough around the edges but so are we! We hope that you find lots of ideas and inspiration and that ‘Make your own’ becomes your motto as much as it is ours!

P.S Don’t forget to check out my husbands website…he is a drum teacher!
