Sharon Nettleship – Silhouette UK Design Team
“Hi my name is Sharon and I live in Scotland with hubby and two of my four kids. The other two have flown the nest. I’ve been crafting since I was small and started off with cross stitch and knitting which soon turned into papercraft. About 19 years ago I took up crafting seriously and now you’ll find me at my craft desk nearly every day. My dream came true a year or so ago when I was able to give up work and do what I love best and craft all day.
I love cardmaking, mixed media, 3D construction and using vinyl. I particularly love to combine my cardmaking with the Silhouette in making 3D kinetic cards and home decor. Recently I treated myself to some vinyl and a heat press and now I have the vinyl bug too.
I love working with the Silhouette as it always astonishes me to see a plain piece of card as a blank canvas which can then be turned into something really beautiful or in some cases functional. I can also use the mountain of stamps that I’ve accrued over the years to decorate the pieces.
I bought the Cameo 4 last year and gave my daughter my older Cameo and have been teaching her how to use it. She’s now hooked too, my poor hubby lol.
I’m delighted to be on the Silhouette UK design team and I’m looking forward to inspiring other Silhouette users and pushing myself to try new techniques.“
