A Crafty Welcome

Welcome to the website for the Crafty Owl, home of paper card and craft creations for every occasion. My name is Joanne James and I’m an independent demonstrator for Stampin’ Up!, based in Northampton, Northamptonshire in the United Kingdom. I am an avid crafter with a passion for all things Stampin' Up! and I love to make cards, wedding stationery, scrapbook pages and home décor – pretty much anything out of paper!

As a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, I host in-home parties, run cardmaking and papercraft classes in and around Northampton and manage an active and growing team of demonstrators who also share a passion for papercraft. I am happy to travel in the surrounding area including Warwick, Coventry, Warwickshire, Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, Bedford, Bedfordshire and Leicester, Leicestershire. Details on my current class schedule can be found here or for more information about hosting a party, click here. If you’re interested in joining my growing team of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators get in touch or click here to find out more.
