About

I’m Gwen Wruck, I live on the beautiful Gold Coast in Queensland with my hubby who happens to be a pro-photographer and daughter Caitlin, the most photographed child on the planet!
I started scrapping in 1998 and still absolutely love it.  I have worked on many design teams and am currently designing for Cocoa Vanilla and Colour Blast Australia and love showcasing products, sharing ideas and connecting with the scrap community.  I have enjoyed having articles and layouts published in Scrapbooking Memories and JOT magazines and am trilled to be a Scrapbooking Memories Master for 2017.  I also teach at a local store all of which keeps me very busy.
I adore paper and layering it up and have quite an eclectic feel to my designs. My pages are embellishment heavy, generally clustered and most definitely have a “pretty” feel to them.  I love chipboard, layers and flowers and almost always include sewing on my pages.  I have a clean mixed media style proving you don’t have to get your hands dirty to do mixed media and I cannot wait to share my unique style and creating tips with you all.
