Since I discovered scrapbooking a few years ago, I've been amazed at the blessings it's brought into my life. It's taught me that I'm creative. It's taught me that I have a story to tell. It's taught me that playing with paper and photos is so much more fun than I ever thought it could be, and it's reinforced that I love to give back.
By learning you will teach;
by teaching you will understand.
And so I started to teach. Slowly at first and then it grew. I teach regularly around New Zealand, I've taught in Australia and more recently Indonesia. I am willing and excited to share my passion for Scrapbooking wherever you may be.
I have a couple of 'Trina' Classes that are incredibly popular....
This class is new each time it's taught (unless otherwise stated) and each student creates three wonderful layouts in a 2 hour class. Below are some examples of this class taught in 2011/2012.
2). "Texture Throughout"
This class is designed to specifically look at building texture and dimension on our layouts. We build the class from the base up, including lots of wonderful techniques.
At the end of the class students will have a completed 'Trina style' layout with loads of texture (examples follow).
(for more class samples, please see the photo gallery in my sidebar)
Plus of course I teach the following:
1. Card Classes
2. Smash album classes
3. Mini album classes
4. Off the page classes
5. A class based on what YOU want to learn
My classes are full of product as well as alot of love and energy.
I feel so incredibly passionate about this amazing craft of ours that I just adore passing on my thoughts, ideas, feelings and of course new and interesting techniques and processes to help get your story told.
The most effective teacher will always be biased,
for the chief force in teaching is confidence and enthusiasm.
Here's what 'The Scrapbook Store' owner had to say about one of my classes:
Praise for Trina McClune...she makes her kits a divine treat, complete with full instructions; she is a fun inspiring Tutor that my customers loved; she goes that extra mile to make sure they go home with a stunning project filled with techniques. I encourage you to book her for a class or two and then insist your customers attend....everyone will leave raving about the day!

And Sharon Laakkonen, Prima: Global Education/DT Coordinator, says:
Trina McClune started at Prima as an amazing designer on our highly-sought after team and continued for the maximum allowed: two full terms. After her DT term was up she was unanimously added to our exclusive group of talented Prima educators! Not only is Trina
very talented, but she is amazing to work with as well. Her organization skills, attention to detail, and desire to go above and beyond with every class, really set her apart from many other educators out there. Trina's passion for scrapbooking, and passing that passion along to others, is easy to
see when taking one of her fabulous classes!

We learn by teaching.
