Helen Williams – Silhouette UK Design Team
“Hi, I’m Helen. I’m a single mum of two and crafting is my passion. My family are a huge influence for all of my makes and I love to make things that I know they will enjoy and can get involved with. So you will see lots of kids party stuff, diggers and unicorns from me.
I started my own cutting file business when I was on maternity leave with my son 4 years ago as a side hustle and I’ve never looked back. I first started just to earn some extra cash to take the kids out but once I became single it became my main income. I absolutely love my job and inspiring other home crafters to create.
The favorite thing that I have created on the blog so far is our new wall calendar. This was a great project for me as our old version was looking very tired and the new version really brightens up the kitchen. My favorite project that I have created for my family was my daughter’s 1st birthday cake. Which was all made out of paper. I was super excited about it and it still sits on my shelf at home. I’m always learning and I can’t wait to share my projects with you.”
Favourite Craft Tip
“Do a test cut first and always test the quality of new paper suppliers, or even new batches of paper from old suppliers! As the fiber length can have a massive impact on cut quality!”
