About Christine Emberson

Christine EmbersonChristine Emberson lives in the “Garden of England” in Kent, the South East corner of England approximately 20 miles away from London. She is a busy single mum to two teenage sons, two cats and a sweet pup named Bella. Christine works part time in London for a law firm. She splits her passions between crafts and writing. She’s been published a few times and even won a car for writing a short story!
Christine loves creating mixed media projects such as gift bags, frames and tags. Visualizing each as a gift for someone helps her go that extra mile. While locked away in her craft room, she always has a DVD playing, from her diverse collection from period dramas - Downton Abbey, Jane Austen to series like Boardwalk Empire and Game of Thrones. “I always fast forward gory and scary bits!” she laughs. Sometimes a glass of red wine helps with creativity, but of course, she drinks quite a lot of tea, of course!
Christine loves Crafty Power Tape, and uses it on all projects from cards, scrapbook pages, tags and more. “I am guaranteed perfect adhesion and I will not get stressed trying to lift off the backing!”
Christine has a little shop/studio where occasionally she teaches classes. “It is enormously satisfying to come up with a project, share it with others and see the delight on their faces as they are creating.” Christine has been on manufacturers design teams, and appeared on craft TV in the UK.
