INTRODUCING ..... OUR NEW DESIGN AND INSPIRATION TEAMS FOR 2012!!!

We are proud to announce our new
Design and Inspiration Teams for 2012!!
Returning to the WOW Design Team
for 2012 are...

Sandra lives on the South Coast of NSW.   She is married and has one POD.  She has been scrapbooking for over 8 years now, and just loves the creative outlet.  Her style is eclectic with loads of layering and a little bit random. She loves playing with new product and trying out new techniques. Chipboard gives her the opportunity to experiment with loads of different mediums, and she loves the versatility of WOW chipboard. She is also the owner of  Scrapbooking Delights ... please go and visit her!



Wendy lives in Launceston TASMANIA with her DH and their 2 boys Charlie and Angus.  She has been scrapbooking since she fell pregnant with Charlie in 2004. Scrapbooking to Wendy  is not only the art of keeping memories, but is also her creative outlet.  Wendy describes  her style as masculine, with a feminine touch, layered, and clustered that capture everyday moments!






Gilly is a mother to Milly 7 (Amelia-Jane), wife to Ben, scrapbooker, best friends to Renee (Nay) and works at Fred The Needle a scrapbooking shop Penrith NSW Australia.  Renee and I have been best friends since we first met in 1998 working in a newsagency in Bowral and she got me into Scrapping in early 2005, and ever since we have been scrapping LOs and OTP about our life family and friends.  Yes our children are Scrap abused and they smile at every camera which is pointed at them, lol.  Gilly has also recently become a Girl Guide Leader in her spare time!!


Introducing our new Design Team
members for 2012!

Emma is 30 years old and is married with 3 children,  Isabella who is 5 and my boys, Jordan 4 and Jett who is 2.  She has been with her husband for 12 years and they have built a gorgeous little life for them selves in Tasmania. She has been scrapbooking for about 8 years and still loves it as much as when she first started.  She loves surfing the net for inspiration and doing challenges from all the great challenge blogs out there.  She loves using inks, mists and distressing and loves trying new techniques.   She is so stoked to be on the WOW team, as she loves the chipboard, always new things coming out the variety is huge.   She looks forward to sharing her creations with you all.

Kellie currently lives in sunny Brisbane and has 4yr old twin boys Harry and Sam. She started scrapbooking back in 2002, but became more 'obsessed' after the birth of her boys. She usually loves to scrap with brighter papers and loves to use layering, ink and CHIPBOARD on her pages! She sources inspiration from online blogs and galleries, and from the photos themselves. She looks forward to her time on the WOW  design team and hopes she can inspire you with our gorgeous range of chipboard.


Susan is a stay at home mum that seems to be busier now than when she was in the corporate sector. She has a fabulous family...2 gorgeous children... coming to a layout near you soon! And a fabulous man who gets her hobby and supports her product addiction. She has been scrapping for almost 8 years now and has had a fabulous time doing so.  She has been fortunate to be on quite a few Design Team, had countless publications in most of the magazines and the opportunity to teach at one of the paper festivals. She is also co-owner of a handmade embellishment business  ... A Lil' Somethin' and her "real job" currently is as a professional face painter. She loves to create and finds chipboard elements add a little extra to her projects so is thrilled to be embarking on this year with WOW chipboard... hopefully she can inspire you to source and use these amazing products along the way.
 Now on to our Inspiration Team!!

Lisa lives on the South Coast of NSW, with her hubby Andrew, their two lovable ratbags Seth and Emeline, and fur-baby Marley. Lisa began scrapbooking over 7 years ago when her son was a baby, as a way of documenting his first year. Lisa likes to mix up lots of different patterns on her layouts, with no colour off limits. She always includes handwritten journaling on her pages, and loves to include clusters of embellishments, including chipboard. Scrapbooking brings together all of her loves...playing with pretty papers, photography and documenting her family stories.
Kaitlynne is 26 years old and is married to a wonderful man Justin.  She loves living on the south coast of NSW, and couldn't imagine life anywhere else!  Scrapbooking has been a hobby for around 6 years and it seems she gets more into it as each year goes by.  Late last year she even got her own scrap room!  She would describe her style as clean and simple. She likes to use coordinating patterned papers, mists and string! She also loves chipboard as it is so versatile and can come in just about any shape, style or word you can imagine. So needless to say she is super excited to be apart of the WOW team for 2012.  She looks forward to sharing her work with you!



Monique lives in Mackay on the Tropical North Coast of Qld.   She is married with one 6 year old boy, who is the main subject of my scrapbooking.  She started Scrapbooking about 6 years ago, when Connor was about 6 months old, had a break for a couple of years then really caught the bug... and hasn’t stopped since!!  She is usually doing something scrapbook related every day – for her it is her down time, a creative outlet and a fantastic way to record family moments. She finds it really really hard to describe her style...  It is very eclectic, and she usually just goes where the mood takes her.   She tend to use lots of layers and distressing, and her layouts usually end up looking shabby, grungy or vintage.  She loves experimenting with different techniques, and usually uses lots of mists, paints or inks. 


Our team also still includes our lovely and extremely talented Product Designer - Linda Baldock!!!

Linda is a West Aussie mixed media artist, living creatively in Sydney (but only for the next 6 months) until she moves back to Perth!!  Linda travels all over Australia sharing her experimental style at workshops, shows and retreats. Her product designs are seen regularly in scrapbook and craft publications.

Linda will be teaching next at the Art Is You - The East Coast Art Retreat in Sydney on the 15th - 18th March 2012.












We hope our new Design and Inspiration Teams inspire your scrapping this year and can't wait to see more of their work.

Watch out for a HUGE announcement coming tomorrow regarding a BIG PROMOTION coming your way for FREE CHIPBOARD!!!

Suzanne and Neil
