Meet Our Creative Team - Janine

Hi, my name is Janine, and I live with my hubbie in NE England. I have one grown up daughter who lives in London and I miss her every day. I’ve always loved arts & crafts, especially drawing and painting.  Over the years I've tried lots of different crafty things such as calligraphy, cross stitch, flower arranging, even face painting. I got hooked on card-making about 12 years ago and love it, especially when I can combine it with digital images and colouring.

1.)    List 3 things someone would be surprised to learn about you? I’m a total gadget and computer geek (mmm, maybe that’s not such a surprise!), I worked for a year on an Archaeology dig when I was in my late teens (I was the only girl for a long time), and despite being very shy as a child I became a trainer in the adult education sector and taught different computer and job skills to adult learners, and loved it.

2.)    What is your favorite color combo and favorite coloring medium? Ooo, that’s a hard one. Well my favourite colour is blue, and love all shades of it and adore it combined with other colours such as green or pink. Favourite medium, now that’s another toughie, I love working with my Copics, but every now and again I enjoy working with my many pencils and watercolouring mediums.

3.)    If you had to survive on just 3 foods, what would they be?
It would have to be dark chocolate Kit-Kat biscuits, pizza and Cheerios --- and not necessarily in that order either.

4.)     What do you like most about being a member of the Whimsy Creative Team? That has to be the fabulous products I get to work with - the quality and variety is amazing. Every time I get to work with a new launch I just sit with my mouth open, and thank my lucky stars.  The cherry on top is that I get to work with Denise and a bunch of friendly, supportive teamies who are incredibly talented, many of whom I’ve admired over the years. We have so much talent in one place. As a relative newbie, I’m still a bit in awe of them….ssh!

5.)    What challenges you when stamping/crafting? Now that’s easy….getting things straight and even in my layouts. If something is even slightly off it goes in the bin. I have so many rulers and trimmers to help me get my background papers, card and toppers straight I now need a bigger craft room. LOL


  1. Love that you worked on an archeological dig for a year! What a cool thing to have on your CV! Fab bio and love your gorgeous card. Hugs, Wends xoxo
