Embellish It Team

Hi, I’m Joanne, I have lived in Timaru all my life and have always enjoyed making and creating things especially cross stitches, paper tole, crocheting, knitting, sewing and quilting to name a few. I’ve been card making for approx. 15 years, which started out by going to card classes at a local store, then moving up to layouts and other projects, and culminating in buying my own scrapbooking business - Embellish It!  As well as paper crafting, I now also teach and design the weekly card classes at Embellish It.



Hi, my name is Lisa and I am addicted to crafts! Particular obsessions include layouts, mixed media, collage and art journaling. I have recently discovered that I also enjoy teaching others and encouraging them to get as messy and creative as me, and my philosophy is that there’s no rules, mistakes or accidents in my classes - just creative discoveries!

Hi, I am Juanita and I’m originally from Los Angeles but now reside in Temuka with my husband, two cats and dog. I love crafts of all kinds and have been crafting for over twenty years. I’m especially fond of making mini albums, love colouring with copics and doing mixed media, card making and layouts.
