I'd like to share some information with you about our guest tutor Cathy Cafun who will be teaching at the October Retreat in Noosa, regarding her Scrapbooking journey so far.......
1. How did you start in Scrapbooking and how long have you been doing it?
I found my passion for scrapping 7 years ago when I was introduced to this addictive craft by a friend, and have been hooked ever since.
2. What do you enjoy most about scrapbooking?
3. What is your style?
I’m not really sure what my style is, but I do love Shabby Chic/Vintage and am very partial to the grungy distressed look. My creations usually have elements of texture and dimension and I find fussy cutting, layering and distressing a wonderful way to achieve this.
4. What are your favourite 3 products at the moment and what can’t you do without?
Gesso – I love the beautiful softness and texture you can create on a page with gesso.
Dies - Totally love them atm.. they are a fab way to create your own embellishments.
5. Where do you find inspiration for your layouts?
6. How do you get through Scrappers block?
7. What is the best advice you would give to newbie scrapbookers?
Cathy adds "My love of Scrapbooking has allowed me to work alongside some amazingly talented artists through various positions on Design Teams, giving me the opportunity to make some beautiful and inspirational friends from all over the world. I was also lucky enough to be invited to teach at the Scrapbooking and Papercraft Convention in June and had the most amazing time.
If you haven't already booked your spot for the Retreat, don't leave it too much longer as places are starting to fill up - don't miss you opportunity to be part of a fantastic class with Cathy as well as a weekend full of fun and scrappin' of course!!
