About Me!

I am actually a dairy farmer in real life but have this little business as a ever growing sideline! I live near Te Puke which is near Tauranga and have spent  alot of time in Whakatane area. I am also a part time phlebotomist.

I love to teach people and introducing new people to this craft  and have been  scrapbooking for 15 years now. Card making  came along much later and Im addicted to both.
I am a nationally recognised name in the New Zealand Scrapbooking scene and have been published in magazines both here and in the US.

I have a long suffering Hubby of 29 years and our two children 22 and 19 are my main subjects for scrapbooking. We have 2 dogs, 2 cats and 540 cows. I’m a new convert to card making and have learnt a lot of it online ..in fact the first stamping techniques I learnt was from that little Stampin’techniques booklet SU used to send with every order! So it just goes to show that anyone and everyone can do this as a craft and as a business.

I joined Stampin’ Up! to continue my teaching and as the demise of the adult education classes in New Zealand hit, I thought it was doubly important to get out there and teach.  I love the coordination of products that Stampin’ Up! brings to my crafting whether it be in cards, altered art or scrapbooking.

My aim is to provide a fun and stress free class.

    Dear Delys, I want to buy the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits die and wondered if you know of any company in Australia or New Zealand that sells these. If I get them direct from America they will cost me nearly one hundred dollars, including postage, and this is just too much…
