Tutors at SENZ 2021
I have always loved to be doing or making something and have had stints in lots of different crafts. I started scrapbooking about 12 years ago and it just felt right and it has been part of my life since then. Photography is another big love of mine so being able to showcase photos on the pages I create is a bonus. So being a photographer means I have a lot of photos so I needed a way to get as many photos on pages as I could but without sacrificing a well composed clean page. Also, scrapbook paper is double sided and sometimes I can’t choose which side to use. So, I started to create my interactive layouts which allowed me to not only scrap 20 to 30 photos at a time but I also got to see both sides of the paper. I love when people “explore” my pages and discover all the hidden “openable” or “liftable” components.

I would describe my style as ever-changing but there is always a focus on telling the stories. I have combined my love of photography from my Poppa and my love of story telling from my Nana into my pages. Having both a daughter and a son allows me to play with both feminine/masculine styles but I do love colour (except as many know I am not that crazy about purple!) I have a love of learning and continue to try new products and techniques.
I’ve taught at SENZ back in 2005-2007, I was part of many design teams – SBO , No 8 Wired team and I had several work published in Up2Scrap (NZ magazine). I’ve taught locally in Tauranga for Bookem and now Craftables. I recently taught at CAD in 2020.
I’m excited to be delivering some epic classes to show you how to use laser-cut products on your pages. See you there!
I accidentally got in to card making a number of years ago through a magazine purchase that happened to come with a free stamp. The rest you could say is history! I am now a card making addict and I love to create cards with lots of fun dimension, rich colour and eye catching interest. I also like to use techniques that extend my stamp and die stash further and I can’t help myself when it comes to shimmer and sparkle! I am on a number of design teams and have been teaching card technique classes at Scrapbook Central in Wellington for a few years now. I look forward to meeting you at my class where you will learn some new techniques, try out some new products and have a few hours of fun and creativity.
I am so taken with the Graphic 45 brand and my SENZ class this year features one of their recent releases. Scrapbook Central has the largest range of Graphic 45 products in the country and I look forward to sharing my passion for all things G45 in my class and on our stand at SENZ 2021.
She is on the design team for 3Quarter Designs and will be teaching layout with one of their recent release packs this year. Sharon is also a fine artist so her classes are full of art techniques that will stretch your imagination and introduce you to new products.

I started my Youtube channel called “My Arty Heart” about 6 years ago - just for fun. I have written articles for an online magazine before (Mixed up Mag), and have also been featured twice in other printed versions, which was a great accomplishment for me. I was then a design team member for The Crafters workshop for 2 years, where I learned a lot about myself and my style. Currently I am attending art school at Browne School of art, and really enjoying being
I draw inspiration from all around me; it could even be from my daughter's dress, a recurring dream or something as simple as the night sky. I will be teaching 3 classes this year, 2 Art Journalling classes and a Gelli Plate class.
I love using new products, especially anything from Tim Holtz, Darkroom Door, Lavinia and Carabelle Studios and will be using products from these brands amongst others in my classes. This year I will be teaching a card class and a NZ travel themed layout. I'm looking forward to meeting you all either in one of my classes or at the Create stand. See you at SENZ!
I will be teaching a card class and a NZ themed travel layout using stamps from my 2 favourite brands: Darkroom Door and Lavinia.
