with a Master
Internationally renowned scrapbooker, Louise Nelson has been on several Design Teams over the years and was dubbed a Scrapbooking Memories Master in 2012.
Recently she has been selected to be on the 2014-15 Prima Design Team – quite an honour as there are only 20 scrapbookers worldwide selected to be on the team from numerous applications. She also creates for Jenni Bowlin Studio, Imaginarium Designs and 7 Dots Studio..

A word from Louise: “I live in Adelaide, South Australia and by day I am a Registered Nurse working in many different hospitals on a day to day basis as an Operating Room Nurse.”
“I create because it helps to balance out the day to day stresses of my profession, and it satisfies my arty yearnings. I have always had creative hobbies; before taking up scrapbooking six or seven years ago I loved to restore furniture.”
“Since I have started scrapbooking I have also developed a love for portrait photography, and more recently, I have begun to dabble in painting. During the last seven years I have been fortunate to have been a Creative Design Team member for Scrapbooking Memories Magazine (Aus) in 2009 and a Scrapbooking Memories Master for 2012.
Currently I create for Jenni Bowlin Studio, Prima Marketing, Imaginarium Designs and 7 Dots Studio. I am excited to be appearing and teaching at the Hamilton New Zealand Craft & Quilt Fair, and can’t wait to share with you my scrappy passion.”
A shout out to New Zealanders – Get along to the Craft & Quilt Fair in Hamilton, August 7 – 10 and watch Louise demonstrating her techniques and teaching classes each day and see her work on display. You’ll get some great ideas for your cards, tags, journals and scrapbooks. Her style is arty – but don’t be frightened by that – it’s all technique that you can learn – and your work will be arty too! It’ll appeal to card makers and scrapbookers, and anyone who wants to create art journals or just have fun with mixed media will enjoy Louise’s ideas.
