My name is Hetty, born and raised in The Netherlands I came to Australia late 1989. I live in a small seaside town in Queensland Australia with my husband of 27 years and our three teenage girls. I have been paper crafting since 2004 and my style is constantly changing while I teach myself new techniques and try to stay up to date with the latest trends. My signature technique would have to be ‘fussy cutting’, and now try to incorporate it with mixed media and the many gorgeous flowers on the market these days. In the past I have enjoyed designing for Australian companies and several online stores as well as working in a few local brick and mortar stores. I have had several of my layouts published in Australian magazines as well as overseas. In 2009 I was extremely fortunate to have been chosen as one of Australian Scrapbooking Memories Magazine ‘Masters’, which I enjoyed immensely. After a bit of break for about a year or so I am now designing and teaching again. I love my creative time away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Today I am very excited and honoured to have been chosen as one of the many talented Design Team members here at 49 and Market and I will try my very best to inspire you all.
