About Me!

I am actually a dairy farmer in real life but have this little business as a ever growing sideline! I live near Te Puke which is near Tauranga and have spent  alot of time in Whakatane area. I am also a part time phlebotomist.

I love to teach people and introducing new people to this craft  and have been  scrapbooking for 15 years now. Card making  came along much later and Im addicted to both.
I am a nationally recognised name in the New Zealand Scrapbooking scene and have been published in magazines both here and in the US.

I have a long suffering Hubby of 29 years and our two children 22 and 19 are my main subjects for scrapbooking. We have 2 dogs, 2 cats and 540 cows. I’m a new convert to card making and have learnt a lot of it online ..in fact the first stamping techniques I learnt was from that little Stampin’techniques booklet SU used to send with every order! So it just goes to show that anyone and everyone can do this as a craft and as a business.

I joined Stampin’ Up! to continue my teaching and as the demise of the adult education classes in New Zealand hit, I thought it was doubly important to get out there and teach.  I love the coordination of products that Stampin’ Up! brings to my crafting whether it be in cards, altered art or scrapbooking.

My aim is to provide a fun and stress free class.

  1. This is the first time at your site. I now have you saved.
    What awesome card and pages. You are very gifted and thanks for sharing.


  2. Hi there, just found your blog through a link from Caroleanne’s site. How great to see someone from the southern hemisphere. I have been searching blogs the last couple of weeks and they are all American or English. Good on you! Ill be back!


    1. I love your site I pinned on Pinterest. Do you have a tutorial for the dress card? I can’t figure out how to fold it right! Also I have a 25 scallop circle punch can that be used??? Thank you hope to hear from you!!!


  3. Dear Delys, I want to buy the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits die and wondered if you know of any company in Australia or New Zealand that sells these. If I get them direct from America they will cost me nearly one hundred dollars, including postage, and this is just too much…


      1. Dear Delyn,

        Thank you so much for replying and I have contacted a couple of local people from the location you gave me, and am waiting on a reply as we speak.

        I appreciate your help, from one card maker to another,

        Best wishes, Trish
