Introducing Wendy and Aud...

Wendy and Aud have both been guest designers in the past and we're thrilled they're here to join us as part of the team!

Name: Wendy Smith
Location: Australia
Blog: www.my-head-space.blogspot.com
Designer: 12x12 layouts


I am Wendy Smith, married to the most understanding 'Scrap Widow' in the world Duncan, and mother to 2 ratbags…ahh I mean Boys…. Charlie and Angus.  I first started scrapbooking when I was pregnant with Charlie in 2004. I really loved the thought of keeping memories, and being creative. I have always been a lover of stationary and remember collecting writing paper and stickers when I was young. I am a definite paperholic, and love the feel, texture, colours and even smell of paper. I have always enjoyed cutting and sticking and expressing myself creatively and scrapbooking seems to be the perfect way for me to do this.   I would consider my style quite masculine, as a I rarely scrap girly pages. To look at, my layouts are quite distressed, layered and bright. I really love the technique of clustering embellishments, and feel I have my own unique way of doing this that works for me! I don’t claim to be a photographer, and enjoy using my everyday photos in layouts.  I get inspiration from the world around me. I love scrapping with my friends and my sister, as they are all very talented scrappers who have their own unique styles that are very inspirational to me. I love browsing online galleries and blogs to get inspiration for layouts, and find creating and using sketches extremely inspiring also.

Name: Aud Randi Kalve

Designer: 12x12 layouts


Hello! My name is Aud Randi and I live with my husband and two teenage daughters, aged 15 and 18 in Bergen, Norway.  During the day, I work as a study leader for a large engineering company in the oil business.  All my free time I spend with scrapbook-related activities like browsing the internet, reading magazines, shopping for supplies, and of course creating layouts. I started with this hobby in September 2008 because I decided to make an album for my youngest daughter's 15th birthday. As I have never before been a great fan of putting pictures into albums, you could say that I have a lot of catching up to do.
