Here’s the introduction of the second tutor for our Crop & Classes day on 15th February 2014:
Hi, my name is Michelle Whorwood and I have been scrapbooking for about 8 years now!! I am a SAHM to three gorgeous kids Liam who is 9 1/2, Taylor Grace who is 3 and Aimee Rose who almost 20 months. I’m married to a super supportive lovely man (Gary) and we live in Albany on the North Shore of Auckland.
Scrapbooking is my creative outlet, my indulgent me time where I get to document the stories (the good and the bad) of my family as well as letting me enjoy one of my other favourite past times – shopping! You could describe my scrapbook style as a bit eclectic and definitely fun. I love using colour – taking inspiration from my photos, the stories and from the products themselves. You will find lots of layering and little details on my layouts. I also love trying to find new ways to use embellishments and enjoy pushing my style in definitely directions.
I currently design for the sketch challenge site Creative Scrappers and have been super lucky to be on several design teams over the last few years including Scrappin’ Patch, D-lish Scraps, Challenge Me Happy & guest designer at Crazy Monday Scrapbooking Kits. I have also had layouts featured on the Crate Paper blog, and for challenges at Prima Marketing, the Color Room, Sketchy Thursdays, Kraft it Up, Color Stories Inspiration and Sketchabilities.
I really enjoy sharing techniques, tips and ideas through my design team commitments and in my scrapbook classes. Over the years I have taught many beginner and technique classes but most recently I was a tutor at the 2013 Scrappin’ Patch Spring Retreat in Christchurch.

Michelle will do LAYOUT class at the crop. The class cost is $50 (including products), on top of the crop fee which is $40. BUT there will be a special offer for those who book themselves in to both classes on the day, details will come later!
