To all you paper-crafting addicts out there who someday dream of being published or working for huge scrapbooking company or just to simply be on a Design Team, well I am here to tell you that it can happen because................... it has happened to me!! My coming of age so to speak - I finally made a Design Team and what's more important is that it's an Australian chipboard company. Imaginarium Designs has decided to take a chance on a "rookie" and allow me to use their beautiful chipboard to create some cards and other things I might be able to come up with!
I am going to take this opportunity with both hands and cherish it as I believe there is no greater privilege in this industry to represent a company and showcase their products each month to the best of my ability. I hope you will follow me as I start this new creative journey and be inspired to either re-create my designs or use the techniques to come up your own ideas.

Today I'd like to introduce you to a new member of our team ... Wendy.
Wendy is an awesome cardmaker and super clever lady - she'll be joining our team this month.
“My paper crafting journey began when I was just 18 (now 42), from the moment I stamped an image and then watch the embossing powder melt (over a toaster) I was hooked. I have always loved beautiful stationary and papers but when I discovered card making I was in seventh heaven. I definitely fall into the “card makers” category but I also love to work on off-the-page projects as well. Scrapbooking…….. Let’s just say it doesn’t come naturally to me but rather something I dabble in here and there when the mood takes me. When I think about my style of design I like to think that I can adapt from grungy to clean and simple without too much trouble, I love chipboard (obviously) I think it just makes a project pop!!! This is my first ever time working on a design team and I am relishing the challenge of developing ideas for using the awesome chipboard manufactured by Imaginarium Designs. I hope my cards and projects will be a source of inspiration for you to take out your chipboard, inks and powders and just create for no other reason than because you can.”
