Tracie Hudson
As a young girl, I loved "collecting stuff " - stationery, stickers and lots of little embellishments, so discovering the hobby of scrapbooking was the perfect fit for me. I began scrapbooking during the Summer of 2005 and now focus all of my extra time on creating scrapbook pages filled with special memories of my family and friends.

My first scrapbooking acheivement was being named as one of The Best of Bristish Scrapbooking talents of 2006 and since then my work can be found in numerous magazines, as well as in advertising and galleries of the manufacturers I have designed for.

I currently serve on design teams for manufacturers Prima Marketing and Sassafras, as well as being a member of the Pencil Lines Inspirational Sketch Team. I am also an approved Prima Educator which has enabled me to share my passion for crafting across many continents including Europe, the States and South Africa.

My style could be be described as detailed and layered, as I love cutting, crafting and altering paper to create truly dimensional layouts. As an experienced teacher, I look forward to bringing amazing classes with fabulous products to Belgium, as well as sharing my great passion for this wonderful hobby with the ladies who will be attending The Scraptastic Event.
