About Me

Marguerite Svendsen


For as long as I can remember I have played with paper. As a child, I would use old phone directories as scrapbooks gluing in any image I could get my hands on. I was adding memorbilia to my photo albums before it was called scrap booking and we could get archival quality products. In the nineties, I began "proper" scrap booking in earnest. My card making obsession started not long after. Most recently I have been teaching card making at a craft store in Hornsby, NSW Discovering Close to My Heart and becoming an Independent Consultant starts a new and challenging chapter in my paper crafting journey. I am very exciting about getting back to scrapping and designing, making and sharing new card projects with the stunning array of CTMH Exclusive Colour Coordinated Products.
