Meet Our Team


We are proud to announce our very talented Design Team members....
Hi I'm Claire, an addicted stamper from a quiet corner of North Lincolnshire. I work for a mental health charity and when I'm not at work I can usually be found in my tiny, very untidy craft room. I enjoy all kinds of crafting but I especially love to create my own scenes and backgrounds. I enjoy making cards but also love messing around with altered art projects. I find crafting a perfect escape from the stress of everyday life. I'm so happy to be part of the PanPastel DT, its such an exciting opportunity . I'm looking forward to sharing my journey with PanPastels and hope that they will inspire others to have some fun and create.

Hi everyone my name is Lou Sims and my day job is working with 32 8 and 9 year olds. I am also the schools Art and DT co-ordinator which means I get to have messy fun with all the children in the school and hopefully inspire them to be creative individuals. I am prodominately a card maker but love to try my hand at a bit of altered art and slowly succombing to the charm of mini albums too. I am presently on the Polkadoodles, Studio 12 and Twisted Tuesdays DTs and love playing with all things crafty. I am really looking forward to being a part of the Pan Pastels team and sharing my crafty projects with you all.

Hi! I'm Nikky Hall and I've been an Educator for Premium Craft Brands since Feb 2013. I love being involved with the team and adore working with Pan Pastels and all the great products Premium Craft Brands bring to the crafting world. I have been crafting all my life but teaching and professionally since 2001. I am probably best known for colouring with alcohol markers and my love of everything whimsical but in secret I am a mixed media junkie so I'm looking forward to bringing something different with my creations.  I am the owner and designer at Polkadoodles and you can regularly see me on Create and Craft TV and at shows and stores around the UK.


Hey there my name is Terry, I am married and I am a Mom. I am living in the Netherlands and have been crafting for about 10 years. I started out with 3D, embroidery and then really found my style with vintage inspired crafting. When I am not crafting I am working as a secretary. What do I love to do? Spending time with my family and just sitting at my table and get all the crafty stuff out. While I 'm crafting the ideas pop into my head and then I just know what tot make. I really love to blog, craft, playing with my stamps and inks and I LOVE everything Vintage.. What I love the most, the color purple, Tim Holtz, and butterflies from Wendy Vecchi.
