Design Team



Jenny Mayes

I've been crafting for well over twenty years. I enjoyed stamping so much that it led me to start up in business as Hobby Art and I have been co-owner ever since.

My favourite part of the job is visiting and demonstrating at shops and major craft fairs for customers who stock our stamps. I also do workshops and sometimes demonstrate on Create and Craft.



Anna Flanders

My Crafting Fix is being able to make Greeting Cards. My main source of creativity is using rubber stamps.

I have worked with Hobby Art over the last few years and I have designed a small range of stamp sets. I love to see how other people are so creative with my stamps and it's a case of

 "Why didn't I think of that!"



Alexandra Kamann

 I have a passion for crafts and everything fun and beautiful. I have been crafting forever or it feels like it... I started when I was still a child and I sold my first cards and other handmade things on christmas markets when I was about 8 or 9. At the moment I am addicted to rubber stamping and pretty papers and ribbons.

I have written numerous articles for magazines and have had some cards published recently in Craft Stamper. I teach classes at various locations around the country and demonstrate at many of the major Stamp Shows.

I am Franka Benjaminsen and I live in the Southwest part of the Netherlands, near Belgium and the sea.

Six years ago I took my first steps in the world of scrapping and stamping, but after a while I’ve found out that stamping and cute cards are my thing.

Now I hope, while I’m a member of this design team, that I can give you some inspiration using these beautiful Hobby Art Stamps.

Laura Williams

Hi I'm Laura Williams and am completely addicted to crating!!!
I've always enjoyed art and craft but about 3 years ago I found card making and the rest is history as they say. Card making then got me into stamping and I enjoy both very much! 
I love to share makes, hints and any tips I can give to others, helping other crafters as much as I can x

Sally Dodger

I have been crafting for a few years now, as I find it the perfect way to relax and express my creativity. I started card making after being shown a demo of stamping and heat embossing, and my stamp collection is always the fist place I look when I want to make a project. I am looking forward to sharing my ideas as part of the Hobby Art Design Team.
