Natalie May's Classes

Natalie May from Adelaide will be teaching a variety of classes: Scrapbooking, Mixed Media, Cardmaking, Art Journalling and Backgrounds.


Hi there. My name is Natalie May. 

I’m lucky enough to be a full time paper crafter and I couldn’t be happier! I’m happily married to the awesome Clever Trevor & have a beautiful 14 year old girl child!
I teach around 15 classes a month in Australia and absolutely LOVE what I do – turning my hobby into my job & passion. I am an Ambassador for Lindy's Stamp Gang , I design chipboard for Imaginarium Designs, I’ve been a 2016 Scrapbooking Memories Master, I’m currently Brand Ambassador for Gel Press
, an Intermediate Certified Copic Designer and love everything inky & colour based.
One of the things that keeps me inspired and teaching is that I love to create in all styles. 
As much as this industry likes to ‘Pigeon Hole’ people, I am a versatile artist – I regularly teach & create not only scrapbooking layouts but also Cards, Mixed Media Layouts, Paper based Layouts, Art Journaling, Abstract Canvas Art, plus Kids classes and whatever else I can come up with.

As an Educator and Ambassador for Lindy Stamp Gang & Gel Press& Stencil Girl, I especially love to create with their products and love to educate people about mediums, textures and general products.   

I love this industry … the opportunity to teach a new technique…. Meeting so many amazing people…..and to be able to CREATE everyday is quite a blessing.
