Joy Aitman developed a passion for scrapbooking several years ago, when she attended a class showing how to create beautiful albums. Fascinated by the techniques, she started to develop her own skills and she has never looked back. From being a teacher of art-based textiles she has moved on now and is part owner of a thriving scrapbooking company - Cotswold Keepsakes. She runs regular workshops, teaching her skills to many enthusiastic scrapbookers. Sarah McKenna used to be a lawyer, but is now a photographer and an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society. She discovered scrapbooking on a trip to the US in 1997 and saw it as a means of preserving and enhancing her photographs. Now, in addition to creating her own scrapbooks, she runs workshops on many aspects of scrapbooking, including creative cropping, mosaics, collage and kaleidoscopes. Sarah writes articles on photography and scrapbooking for a range of publications and has had her work published in the UK and US.
