I’m so happy you are here.

You visited at a great time!  Registrations are open for the PhD Retreat being held in the Swan Valley on the weekend of October 14-16.                 

Do you have one (or many) Scrapbook PhD's? - that's "Projects Half Done".  I'm guessing if you've been telling your family's stories in photo albums for a while you have a little finishing off to to do.

How does 48 hours without any other commitments sound to you?  Time to give your full attention to the photos and stories that matter most to you.  Time with other people who "get you" and your passion for photos and paper.  Time to relive life's moments that matter.  Time to laugh.  Time freed from cooking and chores.

Let me give you that time.  I'll add in a few gifts, some prizes, a  couple of croptalks and as much one on one help as you need at the PhD Retreat.

Spaces are limited - just a handful of seats remain.

Numbers are capped as I want you to have a full trestle to work on - you will need it I'm sure!  This event is bound to book out so register early to avoid disappointment.

If this is your visit to this website, be assured this is the place for inspiration to make sharing your photos and stories easy.

I offer classes for beginners and experienced paper crafters & memory keepers.

Let me help you tame the beast that is your digital and print photo archive.

Together, we will explore creative ways to display your photos in scrapbook albums and share the stories that mean the most to you.

Along the way, you will find a group of like-minded memory keepers keen to have fun, build relationships

and expand the community that is

Passionate About Pages.

 I’m here to help you.


What's the next step for you?

The best part of my job is helping people like you choose their favourite photos, add them to albums and tell the story behind them.  You may be an old hand at this scrapbooking caper or someone tentatively taking your first steps toward creating an album of memories to treasure. 

There is something for everyone at Passionate About Pages.  Learn new techniques and scrapbooking processes, create with like minded people and become part of an uplifting and loving community of memory keepers.

I'd love to hear from you, especially if you are new to scrapbooking or have a special album project to get organised.  Click the button to send me a message.

How can I help you?

Join a class

I offer face to face and online events and classes.  They vary in length from a few hours to full weekends.  Fun album challenges can span several weeks.  

Every event is suitable for beginners through to advanced scrapbookers - you will find something new to learn each time you join in.

My lovely customers tell me the laughter and community is as important as the tips and techniques I'm sharing.
