Trina McClune Designs

Book Trina and Esthers Classes at 

Her journey started when her Mother-in-law asked if she'd seen the scrapbook shop just down the road and the rest as they say, is history. Not content to just create items for herself and her family, Trina soon found the amazing community filled with like minded people through magazines, and forums on the internet. 

She started to submit projects to be considered for publication, and design team work and soon found herself working for magazines throughout Australia and New Zealand, designing for shops, and beginning to teach.

These opportunities grew as did her experience and passion and Trina found herself teaching more and more, and extending to international classes as well as continuing classes in New Zealand.

In the last few years, Trina has started to sell kits as well as continuing teaching in real life. Trina has been a regular tutor at SENZ since 2008. 

She is considered one of the top tutors in NZ and is well liked and respected within the scrapbooking community.

I live in Upper Hutt with my husband James, son Liam (18) and our Chocolate Labrador, Piper.  I have an adult daughter (27), Natasha, who lives and works in Perth with her Partner Tom.

Having been raised in a household with a Mother who weaves and a Father who, at one time, was a full-time potter, craft work in its many forms has always been part of my life.

When we moved to Upper Hutt around 2007, I was introduced to Scrapbooking and was instantly hooked.  Liam has Autism Spectrum Disorder and while Autism is his “escape” from the real world, scrapbooking has been my escape from Autism.

I enjoy all forms of this hobby – Layouts, Cards, Tags, ATC’s, Book and Box making as well as Mixed Media and Off-The-Page projects.

I am honoured to have been asked to teach a box making class at SENZ 2017 in association with Trina McClune Designs and I looking forward to teaching in a larger class environment.  I hope to see you there.
