Meet Hazel........

Meet Hazel Eaton....

Since the new DT members have joined SplodgeAway I have been so excited to start the introductions as every member is so unique in their own way and we can't wait for you all to see the amazing work that they have produced.

To start us off meet Hazel, aka, The Dragon...not only is Hazel a new member of the team but she is also Tom's new partner on Create and Craft. We are very excited to see what creations Hazel brings us...

I have been crafting for about eight years now it all started as a hobby then seemed to take over. I got made redundant in 2010 and that was when I decided to start my own business selling craft products . I started out on Rugby market and started to build a network after 18 months my customer base had grown and I took the plunge and opened my shop in march 2012.
I have just celebrated my first birthday in the shop and things are going well.
Crafting is my life I’m totally addicted I run regular workshops and thrive on sharing my passion for cardmaking. I am also on the Craftwork Cards Design Team and was thrilled when Tom asked me to join The SplodgeAway DT team.
I have to say I love any aspect of inking and getting messy so the Splodge Mat ,Masks and definately the StenSkapes are right up my street.
I look forward to sharing my creations with you and hope they inspire you .
AKA The Dragon xx

Isn't Hazel's card beautiful? Hazel has used Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Peacock Feather, Chipped Sapphire and Dusty Concord with Cosmic Shimmer and Spray and Sparkle. Hazel has used the SplodgeAway 'Big Butterflies' Mask to create the toppers on the card.Thank you to Hazel for a great introduction. Hazel does not have a blog but you can add her shop facebook page. I had the honour of visiting Hazel's shop in Rugby when Tom was doing a demo there. It is a lovely shop, well stocked, great customers and fantastic workshops.

Check back tomorrow to meet Claire.

Happy Splodging
