About the Editor

Hello, I’m Becky and I’m the Editor of Simply Cards & Papercraft and Managing Editor of the Papercraft Magazines portfolio at Practical Publishing. I’ve worked for Practical Publishing for over 7 and a half years and have loved every second! From the early days working as a Sub-Editor to now, as the Managing Editor, it’s been a rollercoaster – my first editing role was on Complete Cardmaking – Britain’s best digital cardmaking magazine – and since then I’ve edited Creative Stamping, Papercraft Essentials and launched Die-cutting Essentials, before happily moving over to Practical’s flagship title and Britain’s No.1 cardmaking magazine, Simply Cards & Papercraft focusing on bringing you the best and most on-trend gifts with your magazine with every issue.

I come from a journalistic background, having studied for both my BA Hons in Journalism and MA in Magazine Journalism at the University of Central Lancashire. Since then, my time spent working on our bestselling portfolio of magazines has led to me being surrounded by amazing papercraft products, blogs and personalities for at least eight hours a day, which in turn has helped build my love of cardmaking.

The main thing I love about cardmaking is the strong sense of community the crafting world has to offer. Being the Editor of a craft magazine helps you experience this first hand and I relish it.

I love receiving emails and letters from readers sending me pictures of their makes, designs and inspiration, brilliantly showcasing just how our magazines help build upon this community, and I hope this never changes!

Since launching our Twitter, Instagram and Facebook pages, we’ve made it even easier than before for you to get in touch, and I’m so happy about this – so check out the Contact Us page to find out how to get in touch.

Happy cardmaking
