About Us

Terms & Conditions
Crafts U Love was formed in September 2001 by Paula Baughan and Jenny Baughan (Mother in law). Both avid card makers at the time frustrated by the lack of quality craft companies. Using a spare bedroom and having a bathroom as a stockroom with an ironing board as a packing table was hardly ideal at the time, but served a useful purpose..
But how things have changed since then. In 2002 Paula's husband Geoff left his job to take over from his mother Jenny. Using his IT, Sales and Marketing background Geoff rebuilt the website and started a marketing campaign, which included full page adverts in various magazines, website promotion and attending shows up and down the country. Using Paula's creative talents and general business skills the business continued to grow and after moving home 3 times in 5 years to accommodate the business, it eventually outgrow their home. In July 2006 Crafts U Love moved to their current premises in Charlwood, Surrey. This enabled them to grow their product range and increase stock levels.
Crafts U Love is currently one of the largest Die Cutting and Rubber stamp stockists in the UK and now also stocks most of the world's leading die-cutting systems all of which are complimented by a wide range of general card making and scrapbooking products.

Dear all at Craftsulove, I just wanted to thank for your very speedy & efficient service. I ordered these chalk pencils for my son Monday night, received a dispatch email on Tuesday & they arrived this morning - Wednesday! Thank you so much - now he can get on & finish his GCSE coursework within the deadline. Having seen the pastel chalk pencils, which I didn't know existed, I think I can also make use of them in some of my craft work too :-) Best wishes, Gwen Page - a very satisfied customer!

Dear Craftsulove, I was the happy recipient of the 'Silhouette cutting system for my birthday last week that my husband bought from you. What a happy bunny I am, because its absolutely amazing. I can  believe how easy it is to use and enormous the scope it offers. I am a card maker but this wonderful system has inspired me to start scrapbooking for which it is ideally suited. I can't praise it enough, I just don't understand with the exception of yourselves why there has been so little advertising. Thank very much From one happy bunny
