My Scrap Resume

Hi there, I'm Gwen Wruck, I live on the beautiful Gold Coast in Queensland with my hubby who happens to be a pro-photographer and daughter Caitlin - the most photographed child on the planet!!

I started scrapping in 1998 and still absolutely love it and do so every day :)  I also enjoy making cards for my friends and family.  I have worked on many Design Teams and love showcasing products, sharing ideas and connecting with the scrap community both online and locally.  I have enjoyed having layouts published in Scrapbooking Memories and Scrapbook Creations and am a frequent contributor to Australian Card Making and Paper-craft Magazine.

I adore paper and layering it up and have quite an eclectic feel to my designs.  My pages are embellishment heavy - generally, clusters and most definitely have a "pretty" feel to them.  I love ribbon and flowers and almost always include sewing on my pages.  I have a real focus on colour and love working with interesting colour combos.  I find my designs are linear and rarely feature circles.
