Hi, I'm Julie

A creative who loves scrapbooking, mixed media and art journalling. 
I love to experiment with the latest products and don’t mind getting my hands dirty while I’m at it. I live in Silverdale, NSW with my very supportive husband and our 19 year old son and three chihuahuas. We also have a daughter who lives just around the corner in Warragamba with our three gorgeous grand kiddies.
I currently work four days a week and hope to retire very soon. (2022).

My philosophy

Photographs speak a language of their own, they capture the smallest and the biggest moments of our lives and take us back to places that only exist in our memory. Scrapbooking has forever changed the way we record and preserve our memories for not only ourselves but future generations. It has linked the art of photography, the beauty of words and allows our own individual creativity to flourish. Crafting makes you happier, healthier and more connected, it brings people together as a community that shares and is supportive of each other.

Early On


I was introduced to scrapbooking when my son was only about 6 months old. From then I was hooked. I still remember struggling with my first layout…. but there was something about scrapbooking, it just ignited my creative spirit…

A few years later I decided to open my own scrapbooking store which I named Scrap of Your Life.

My creativity over the last few years has taken me down the path of mixed media, art journalling and project life.

You can find me running retreats and monthly craft events. I spend an awful lot of time scouring the web for the latest products to bring to my tribe of crafters. 



At Scrap of Your Life

 My wish is to create a place where you can all be part of a wonderful community and connect with like minded creatives. It will also be the central point where all the events and retreats will be posted and managed. You will all the information about my other events such as Studio Days, Creative Days, Craft Nights and more. As well has have the opportunity to join in on  classes, tutorials, challenges, inspiration and more.
