Interview of Ngaire Bartlam

Scrapbook and Papercraft expo Interview with Lynette Carroll

Ok so I have been at the annual Scrapbook and Papercraft convention and expo in Brisbane for the last few days and will be there each day until it’s over for this year and if you weren’t already aware we here at Scrapbooking Companion have been fortunate to secure interviews with four of the key note speakers from the expo these speakers are have taught all over the world and are internationally published with a combined experience of over 40 years experience in Scrapbooking between them.

This interview is with Lynette Carroll, Lynette was kind enough to give us a small amount of her time in this interview she discusses her must have tools and the items that live on her desk not to mention how she got started with scrapbooking and her number one tip for beginners.

This Interview was only made possible by the wonderful help received from Print Blocks, and the Scrapbook and Papercraft expo.

I hope you enjoyed the interview here are some links to Lynette’s favourite products - Exacto knife, tweezers, metal edge clear ruler, adhesives, q tips

So keep an eye out on this blog for the interviews of Ngaire Bartlam, Jodi Holbrook and Noralee Peterson coming very soon.

The Most Amazing Scrapbooking Storage Unit I have ever seen!

The Most Amazing Scrapbooking Storage Unit I have ever seen is called The Work BoxTM and it’s fantastic. It’s all on wheels so you can move it anywhere, it folds neatly into a 3′ wide x 3′ wide and 6′ high box that locks shut and you can colour coordinate it with you furniture. So that’s what it looks like but once you fold it out it is a complete work unit with so many storage I couldn’t even count them plus it has it’s own fold out work bench.

They have thought of every thing it even has smaller transparent containers that stick to the walls so you can keep smaller items in site and in grasp. I can’t believe you get all this plus all the shelves are adjustable they really have thought of every thing.

I don’t know about you but I’m always looking for a better way to store all my scrapbooking supplies. Have a look at the Amazing Scrapbooking Storage Unit in the demonstration video.


I challenge you to show me a better craft storage unit.

Brisbane’s annual Scrapbook and Papercraft convention and expo is underway and have been fortunate to secure interviews with four of the keynote speakers with a combined experience of over 40 years experience in Scrapbooking between them.

So keep an eye out on this blog for the interviews of Ngaire Bartlam, Lynette Carroll, Jodi Holbrook and Noralee Peterson coming very soon.

So for the expo it’s self it has been very busy very informative and heaps of fun. A lot of the stands have demonstrations how to use things and all of the stands have heaps of great stock on them. I lot of great tools and embellishments for sale. Something for every layout or card design and every price range.

Not to mention some great prizes to be won both by the organizers and on individual stands them selves.

We have an official launch of a new Scrapbooking Magazine, Do Crafts Creativity - currently the number one crafts magazine in the UK! The magazine will only be available in your local Scrapbooking Supply stores in Australia 1st August. The magazine is packed full of great ideas and for a change hardly any advertisements.

So as you can imagine heaps of things going on at the Scrapbooking and Papercrafts convention and expo 2009 if you missed it this year but want to catch it next year the expo is held every year the June long weekend.

Look out for my other blog posts from the expo with interviews from the experts an possibly the most amazing Scrapbooking storage unit I have ever seen, some great ideas with embossing and a few other tips and tricks.

Will I see you at Australia’s annual Scrapbook & Papercraft Convention & Expo?

The who’s who of Scrapbooking will be there – will you be?

This year’s line up of tutors is extraordinary with most of the tutors having 10 years experience or more with Scrapbooking. A large majority of the speakers are Internationally Published experts in Scrapbooking and a few have even been shipped over hear from the USA specifically for this event! They will all be there for 3 days teaching anyone who is keen to learn.

Not only will you find the who’s who in scrapbooking at the expo but all the representatives for all the leading scrapbooking and papercraft from around the country will have on display the latest products that you will be able to purchase and take home with you. Everything you have ever dreamt of in scrapbooking will be available from Scrapbooking Kits, General Scrapbooking Supplies and every tool you can think of for scrapbooking, stamping, cardmaking and all related papercrafts.

I’ll even let you in on a secret at the scrapbooking expo you will see new products never before seen they will be launched at the expo!!! I can’t wait. You will also get to see all the latest ranges of scrapbooking, stamping, cardmaking and papercrafts. This is a wonderful opportunity to stock up on all the latest products and supplies and as this is an expo and all the products are sold by the distributors so you get the best possible prices. I have checked the details and the range of retailers is huge plus you get to see all the demonstrations. Not to mention it’s a great opportunity to meet new people who all share the same passion as you.

One of the things I really enjoy when going to scrapbooking shows like this is that you get to see an amazing range of different displays and layouts created by the best Australia and the world has to offer. You can’t help but to leave with your head popping with ideas and inspiration straight from the tutors and the demonstrators.

You can also attend classes to help you improve your skills - simply choose a class that is of interest to you and you can scrapbook right there and then most classes are 2 hours long and range in price from $30 - $50 and the class included some of the latest products for you to use and the supplies that you need supplied by the sponsors.

I told you the who’s who of Scrapbooking will be there I mean all you need to do is look at the sponsors you’ll find representatives for Fiskars, Friendly Plastic, K & Company, Krafty Lady Art Moulds, Making Memories, My Mind’s Eye, Pipe Dreamink, Opals and Provocraft just to name a small few of the sponsors.

The Scrapbooking Expo is held only once a year and only ever in Brisbane. This year it is June 6 to 8, 2009 ~ June long weekend at Brisbane’s exhibition centre south bank 9am to 5pm daily.

The Scrapbooking Expo Tutors for 2009 are Ngaire Bartlam, Lu Benson, Sue Bowers, Lynette Carroll (USA), Jane Clark, Nicole Farrell, Jill Geraghty-Groves, Cassandra Glass, Niamh Henshaw, Mylene Hillam, Jodi Holbrook (USA), Melissa Kennedy, Angela O’Neale, Sara Pearcy, Zoe Pearn, Noralee Peterson (USA), Rachel Richter, Andrea Thompson, Teneale Williams and Alison Wood – WOW!!!!
