By day, I have a number crunching job, working out how much to charge for an airline seat between UK and Australia. By night, I’m usually locked away in my studio or in front of the TV doing something creative. I love that I’m able to balance the two. I say it’s my left brain- right brain balance, my yin & yang. 🙂 I originally worked as a graphic artist in my first job after I left school, long before following my dream to work and travel the world.
I guess I’ve always been a creative person. I’ve tried most crafts including cross stitch, long stitch, embroidery, knitting, crochet, folk art, sewing and a little quilting. I learnt crochet from my grandma as a young 5 or 6 year old. I remember spending many Saturdays and Sundays sitting in her sun-drenched porch, learning the various stitches. She made me granny blankets that I still have to this day.
I’ve been scrapbooking for nearly 15 years, firstly as a traditional paper scrapper, and then moving to digital in 2008. This craft is the one that has had the most impact on my life, and probably the one craft that has stayed with me the longest. I love that I am preserving our family memories for future generations. I previously owned an online scrapbooking store (Scrapbook Savvy), and have many layouts published in Australia’s Scrapbooking Memories. A highlight was being featured in the ‘Profile of a Digital Scrapbooker’ editorial in SM back in June 2010. In recent years I’ve become addicted to Project Life, and am a staunch supporter of the Project Life App – nothing better than being able to preserve your memories on the go!
In 2014, I completed a Design Class with Traci Reed, who just happens to be one of my favourite scrapbook designers. The class filled me with the desire to take the next step in scrapbooking, and design my own products, and that’s where Studio10 Creative was born.
Why Studio10 Creative?
If hubby can’t find me, he always calls out “Are you in your studio?” We live at number 10, and I love to get creative. Simple as that!
Studio10 Creative is where I share my passion for scrapbooking and crafting. You’ll also find a little about my life and loves. It’s a place that is filled with the things I love most.
