Pascale Bernard - France


Hi Ladies, my name is Pascale Bernard from France.

I started scrapbooking at the end of 2010. One of my hobbies is photography and over the years I've taken a lot of photos, but they have a tendancy to stay on my computer. As I've always liked handicraft, scrapbooking was a way to combine two of my hobbies, a way to express my creativity and to showcase my photos.

Since I began to scrap, flowers are part of my layouts, and I gradually started to use mixed media as well. I don't know how to define my style, something like free vintage shabby style could be a good definition.





Michelle Whorwood - Auckland, New Zealand


Michelle was meant to teach at AE 2018 but unfortunately due to family illness was unable to be with us. So, she's happy to "have another go" at getting to teach at our event!! I'm so glad she is up for the task... It will be fun to experience her talents first hand!!!


My name is Michelle Whorwood, I am a 40 year old SAHM and live with my husband Gary and our three children in Millwater which is between Silverdale and Orewa in the North of Auckland. 

I have been scrapbooking now for approximately 11 years old since my eldest child Liam was about 2 years old.  My layouts are usually filled with the antics of my three amazing kids -  Liam (13), Taylor Grace (6) and Aimee Rose (5).   I am super lucky to have an amazingly supportive hubby who understands my need for creative time in my scrap room. However, when I am not creating, I enjoy spending time at our caravan at the beach with my family, drinking good coffee and having just built a house adding the final touches on the interior design.  I am also an avid organiser so you will often find me rearranging my scrap supplies or even the furniture in my house!

I have been on several New Zealand and International Design Teams but most recently I have designed for Cocoa Vanilla Studio, Just Nick Studio (digital cut file store) and the Hip Kit Club.  I would definitely say my scrapbooking style is always evolving but generally I scrapbook layouts that are clean and well balanced but with lots of layering and I enjoy adding texture with cut files as well as embellishments.

I am super excited to be asked by Jodi to come along and teach at the 2019 Autumn Escape and I look forward to seeing you all in my classes.  Thanks for having me!
