Tracey is highly talented and diverse in her style of scrapbooking. Tracey will be teaching new way to use products in store along with great ideas in placement of papers. Here is a bit of bio from Tracey ... Hi, my name is Tracey Hunter and I’m super excited to have the opportunity of teaching classes here at 2 Bluebirds with Tracey & Crece. I have been an Ipswich local for 2 years now after living in Sydney for 12 years and so happy we made the move to Ipswich. I have always been a crafter and a photo collector, and my love of scrapbooking started back when I was about 14 and discovered the treasure of my great-grandmothers photo scrapbooks. Over the years I have been fortunate to be on many Design Teams and share my passion for all things paper. I’m looking forward to meeting some new crafting friends and having some fun in my classes. Tracey xx

What is a recipe class you may ask? Each month we will give you the ingredients you need to do this class – The class itself is $12.50 but here is the best thing – You get to use your own stash! We will tell you how many pieces of paper you need and what embellishments or paint or sprays you will need to do this class, but don’t stress we will always have the extra items available to share but if you have these things in your stash so why not get them out and use them!! For example: you need 3 pieces of patterned paper 2 x card stock, 5 embellishments to suit paper, ribbon etc. Also, we have the shop if you cant match things up completely. It’s a fun class with a technique thrown in or a new product so you know what to do with your stash!! Winner Winner
