Hi. My name is Belinda. I am happily married to Brenton and SAHM to Hayley, 4 and William, 3. I started scrapbooking in 2001 but didn’t become totally obsessed until the birth of my daughter in 2005. It is my ‘therapy’ when the kids drive me crazy. 

My love of arts and crafts began as a 5 year old inspired and encouraged by my nana. I have had layouts published in Scrapbook Creations and Scrapbooking Memories magazines. Currently, I am enjoying teaching and being on the Inspiration Team at Abundantia’s Gold, SA. I also get a thrill from colour and sketch challenges on various websites. 

I find that my style is ever changing and differs according to subject or product. I usually include layering, texture, flowers, lace and decorative edges. I love shabby chic with a little vintage creeping in. My favourite ‘thing’ at the moment is border punches. The one tool I could not possibly live without is my craft knife. 

My inspiration usually comes from photos of my kids but also from products and nature, other scrappers I admire and sometimes even from my kids’ clothing. Most of all I love to be challenged to use a specific product, colour scheme or theme. 

I really hope that in years to come my children will look back at their albums and know how much I truly love them.

Here is Belinda's gorgeous take on Sketch 40 and please check our her blog and our gallery for more of her amazing creations !! Thanks Belinda for a great job with the sketch !!
