Please welcome to the WW1 team...


My name is Anne Patterson and I have been scrapbooking for about seven years.
I came across the hobby when a friend of mine invited me to go to a creative memories party when I was living in the US and I guess I just never stopped.
The main subjects are my wonderful sons who are 5 and 7 years of age, however I also get a great deal of pleasure in creating LO’s for friends.
I cannot say I have a distinct style as I enjoy trying new things and new products.
My favourite technique is stitching on my page, but I am always up for a challenge and this is what inspires almost ALL my LO's.
I am also currently on the Design Team at Scrapmatts (an Australian based Chipboard Manufacturer).

I am happily married & I have two grown up sons who have now unfortunately moved out of home, so now I am an "empty nester" & I hate it. I so miss my boys living at home.
I have a great little fat "Staffy" dog called Poppy, who we all totally spoil. I own a Scrapbook shop at The Entrance NSW which I started up 6 years ago & I do a lot of designing & teaching there. I absolutely love my job & I do adore all things paper.
I would have to say I am totally addicted as most of you are too. I am also a sewer, patchworker & beader, however I don't seem to do those as much any more as Scrapbooking seems to be my No. 1 passion.
I am the DT Cordinator for the "Green Tara" Design Team. I am also on the 2 Crafty Design Team & the Kraft It Up Creative Team.


My name is Chantelle, I live in a great beachside town called Busselton in the Southwest of WA.
I have four beautiful boys and a fantastic husband who, like most, is very tolerant of my creative addiction.
For me, scrapbooking is not only about preserving memories, but also a medium in which I can express myself. I love paper, paint and pretty things and love creating in an ‘arty’ way.

My boys are who I scrapbook about the most, though I do like to scrapbooking about things around me or things I love.
I also love the craft for the people I have met and friendships that have been made. It’s awesome to see so much amazing talent around!!

My name is Billie-Jean Beveridge,

So also a little bit about me.........

I am a SAHM to two beautiful girls and live in rural Queensland. I first discovered scrapbooking 8 years ago and have not looked back.
I love getting messy and you will nearly always find paint or glimmermist or ink on my pages along with a little distressing or two.
I nearly always scrap on white and occasionaly push myself to use something else.
I could not scrap without my distressing tool, my inks, my paints/Glimmermists and lastly my 3D tape, everything else is a bonus.


My name is Janice Nicholls. I live in a small country town in SA with my husband and 2 beautiful teenage children.

I have been scrapbooking for 6 years. My children and family are the main focus of my layouts,

and I am very lucky that they are happy to cooperate with me taking photos capturing a moment and memory.

I love photography, (my camera is never far from my reach), spending time with family and friends and weekends.

Starting my own blog this year has inspired me to scrap more, to try different techniques and to participate in some different challenges.

I am unsure of my scrapping style, it always seems to change, but at the moment I am loving layer upon layer, distressing and white space,

I have been lucky enough to have some of my pages published in both Scrapbook Memories and Scrapbook Creations magazines.


We have closed our other business to focus wholly on Scraptherapy, opening a Paper Craft Bricks and Mortar store in Babinda, FNQ to run in conjunction with the online site. During the last 2+ years we have learnt a whole load of stuff about e-commerce, scrapbooking, cardmaking and the people who love these hobbies.

At you will find a fantastic gallery filled with inspiring ideas, a great community of ladies and an odd guy or two in our online forum. Our Design Team backed up by our Big Sisters offer regular competitions and challenges to help you find your mojo, and a chance to win a shopping voucher or two. Then of course there is the shop where we hope you will find all the latest Linkand greatest products at great prices. If you can’t find what you are looking for feel free to contact me at and check to see if we can get it in for you. We often can.

Our freight charges for orders up to $25 is $9.00, orders between $25 to $100 stay at $6 and orders over $100 are now free. I love scrapbooking and Danny can whip up a pretty good card, but our true passion is excelling in great customer service, which we hope to continue to do for years to come.

Scrap Therapy have donated a $25.00 voucher.

Hi scrapbookers, my name is LeAnne and I own and operate Scrapbooking Australia.
