Trina McClune Designs is a hobby turned idea, turned business that has grown and developed over the many years it's owner has been scrapbooking.
Initially taking classes, herself, Trina soon learnt that she had a passion and flair for creating pages that spoke to herself and the people around her.
Her journey started when her Mother in Law asked if she'd seen the scrapbook shop just down the road and the rest as they say, is history. Not content to just create items for herself and her family, Trina soon found the amazing community filled with like minded people through magazines, and forums on the internet.
She started to submit projects to be considered for publication, and design team work and soon found herself working for magazines throughout Australia and New Zealand, designing for shops, and beginning to teach.
These opportunities grew as did her experience and passion and Trina found herself teaching more and more, and extending to international classes as well as continuing classes in New Zealand.
In the last few years, Trina has taken her hobby to a whole new level starting TMD, selling kits on a monthly basis (see 'This months kit featured on the home page for a new kit each month), taking a stand at SENZ where her kits and favourite products are sold, planning scrapbook adventures and retreats (for more information, click on the 'adventures' menu) as well as continuing teaching in real life.
She is considered one of the top tutors in NZ and is well liked and respected within the scrapbooking community.
Trina lives on the North Shore of Auckland, NZ with her family. In 2015 they finished building and moved into their 'dream' house after years of planning. Because of this Trina now has a wonderful area to craft in, being inspired by the natural view her office affords.
She has also started to hold classes 'at home' so please keep an eye on the 'adventure, classes' drop down menu to see what might be coming up.
