Spotlight on...Tanyah Payne

What if...I realized I had forgotten to introduce you to Tanyah Payne,
another amazingly talented tutors at SIA this year.

A scrapbooker for 6 years, Tanyah lives in Lismore, Northern NSW with her wonderful husband Brett and their two children.

Published in Scrapbooking Memories and given an honorable mention in the 2007 Masters competition Tanyah thrives on the new experiences and friendships that constantly evolve from being involved in the industry. Wanting to share this passion with others led to Tanyah starting a store where she teaches classes to all ages and skill levels from 4 years upwards. Being a very proud DT member for Bella and providing step by steps for Spotlight flyers, kits, blog inspiration, displays, magazine adverting and scrap-it TV is a huge joy and challenge and keeps her crazy busy but she wouldn’t change it for the world.

Tanyah’s style has been called eclectic and she loves bright, happy colours, layers and clusters . She works on a variety of projects from mini albums, cards and layouts and loves to create texture and 3D elements. If you would like to find out more about Tanyah go to

What if...things weren't really as they seem?

I just love the possibilities in this "What if..." If things weren't really as they seemed, that means anything is possible, anything could happen and anything might!
Check out the sneak peek form Brandcorp and Dawn Lewis...

What if things aren't as they seem? ... then we would be dealing with illusions. An illusion is said to be the condition of being deceived by a false perception or belief. In this workshop we will be creating a spectacular floral topiary, but it's all an illusion. Real flowers wither and lose their luxurious look, so Dawn will show you how to make everlasting blooms from beautiful and tactile scrapbooking products. The other illusion is that it looks difficult, when in reality it is simple to create.

This is one instance where the illusionist will share her secrets so that you may, in turn, share them with others.
