A scrapbooker for fifteen years, Nic Howard lives in New Zealand with her husband Paul, and their three children. Although residing in the total opposite end of the world, Nic still finds herself involved in the scrapbooking scene internationally; teaching at large international conventions and events, tutoring online alongside the amazing staff at Big Picture Classes and working with several manufacturers for magazine, catalog and trade show artwork. Nic's style can be described as shabby vintage with a lot of details and intricate layers. She loves cutting, crafting and altering paper to create textural and dimensional layouts.




"Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed in the things you did not do than the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
