Meet The Team

Please take a look at the people behind the magic of Creative Cardmaking and Creative Stamping magazines..

Laura Dougherty

I am a keen crafter and have been making things ever since I was little. I have tried most crafts over the years including cross stitch, knitting, sewing, jewellery making, cardmaking and baking. I LOVE spending time in my kitchen and my homemade chocolate truffles are legendary among my family and friends. Before coming to Practical Publishing I was supervisor of a craft shop and I actually found out about my dream job from a flyer inside a box of Creative Cardmaking magazines that had been delivered to my store!

Georgina Murfin

Hi I’m George and I manage the day-to-day distribution and order levels of both Creative Cardmaking and Creative Stamping into craftstores. Before taking this role I had never attempted to do anything 'crafty', but to help me truly understand this role I’ve attended a number of cardmaking classes and have grown to really love all things papercraft and understand how people get so addicted.

I also work closely with the editor Laura Dougherty on choosing the craft shops that carry out the brilliant projects you’ll find within both magazines!

Vicky Welsby

Hello! I'm Vicky, the Art Editor for the Creative mags. I'm one of those lucky people who have found the job they love to do. 

My love affair with craft and design stems from when I was a child. My favourite gift was a big box of stationery! While my friends played with their Barbie dolls, I was found making a mess with the finger paints. At 31 years of age I am still ‘messing’ around with paint, glitter and glue!

A typical day at Practical Publishing for me includes, turning my mac on, making a brew (or two) and laying out the pages that you lovely lot flick through. I sometimes get distracted by all the wonderful projects each mag contains, and can't wait to get home to try a few out! Creativity bounces off the walls here in the office, and we even get together every Tuesday for a lunchtime knitting club. Bliss!
