Anne Patterson


Scrapbooking is a hobby I started years ago with my sister. We would get together on weekends and find ways of turning our photos into beautiful and interesting albums. Growing up our mother instilled in us a love of family and memories, we always had albums around the house and spent hours pouring over the special events contained within these 'time capsules'. Since Mum passed away, my sisters and I have used her albums to answer questions we would have liked to ask her in person. I am now driven to create this same experience for my own children. As a CTMH consultant I love to share techniques, tips and tricks to help you make scrapbook albums, lovely cards and other craft projects. Can't wait to do our next project together! Anne
