The new year brings with it our brand new design Team - The Page 2 Girls! We are very excited to be able to share their inspirational projects with you. But first we thought you might like to get to know them a little better. So here they are, one by one, in no particular order - The Page 2 Girls!
I grew up on the Central Coast of NSW, and after a brief interlude in Cooma NSW, have been living in the outer suburbs of Newcastle NSW for the past 10 years. I am married (and are small business owners) with two teenage kids (currently one in TAFE and one home schooling). I am thankful for the freedom and time they allow me to create and craft.
I am a craft addict from way back – as a young girl it was knitting and crochet, as a young adult it was tapestry and cross stitch. Some 15 years ago I began dabbling in card making and stamping.In that 15 years, I have also had a go at patchwork, quilting, sewing, and scrapbooking to name a few. About 2 years ago my love of stamping was reignited, along with it a greater love of card making and the discovery of ATC’s. This, along with knitting and crochet, fills most of my ‘spare’ time.
I am a Mum of five and small business owner, who has a passion for handmaking things. Although I am only new to it, Scrapbooking appeals to me on so many levels. It is fun and allows creative expression, the limit is your imagination. It is a source of instant gratification with many projects being able to be completed in a single day and wonderful for gift giving.
My favourite media is off the page as I tend to enjoy making mini albums that are event specific rather than large albums, I enjoy altering regular items and making them beautiful and functional.
I am a huge fan of all things Tim Holtz and digital papers and media. My favourite papers are Graphic 45, We R Memory Keepers and My Minds Eye, I also love Basic Grey.
I look forward to creating some wonderful items for Pages 2 Scrap and getting to know you all!
Hi I’m Jane! I feel very honoured to be part of Pages 2 Scrap's first design team and I look forward to my many assignments.
I have two gorgeous teenagers and a very kind, patient and understanding husband. I’ve been making cards for over 11 years now and I absolutely love every aspect of it! I love sharing tips, the products and the many techniques that are out there! I’m very fortunate to have a job in the industry and I also get to teach interstate.
I think my forte would be stamping, techniques and making my own embellishments for my cards, if something doesn’t match what I’m creating then I make it match!! I look forward to showcasing my creations and inspiring you!
My name is Kate, I am 26 years old and I live on the shores of Lake Macquarie NSW with my husband & 2 daughters.
I have been scrapping for nearly 6 years, and started with a basic kit I was given as a gift, then I discovered the big wide world of Scrapbooking.
I have been fortunate enough to be on a few design & creative teams here in Australia & abroad, over the last couple of years. I have also had some publications in magazines which I am really proud of. Being able to share my love of scrapbooking & paper crafting makes me happy!! Most of all though, I am proud of my achievements in documenting milestones & everyday moments of our little family of 4. I have a bit of an arty style, I like to to use paints & inks on my pages, with lots of doodling, layers and clusters. I have many favourite manufacturers, and also love to use handmade embellishments. I am thoroughly looking forward to working on the very first Pages 2 Scrap Design Team, and hopefully inspiring everyone to document life’s treasured moments.
I'm a proud single Mumma to twin girls (who are the subjects of most of my scrapping). I have loved scrapbooking for 14 years. In 2006 I was a Scrapbooking Memories Master and lately I have been trying to improve my photography. I am a slow scrapper compared to most but I will stay up until the wee hours when I am absorbed by a page or project.
The thrill of being asked to join the Pages 2 Scrap design team is such a rush and I cannot wait to open that big package from Tuggerah every month! Pages 2 Scrap is the most amazing store, (my bank account will vouch for my addiction) and I just love Tim Holz products and fun mixed media finds. I do actually get tingles shopping in the store when I am surrounded by all the gorgeous potential. Thank you so much for the fabulous opportunity to join these super talented ladies on this fun scrapping journey.
We are absolutely thrilled to have each and every one of these girls on board and are looking forward to what they have up their sleeves!
Please join us in saying a great big WELCOME to the Page 2 Girls and feel free to leave them some love in the comments section below! :)
