Helen Tilbury


Hi! My name is Helen Tilbury & I am a Zimbabwean, currently living in South Africa {since 2006}. I have 4 children aged 13, 16, 19 & 21, two of whom are away at university for ¾ of the year. I live in Durban, very close to the East Coast {Indian Ocean} although I am not a beach person at all! I love the look & smell of the sea but hate sand & overcrowding!
I have a wonderful partner who I’ve been with for 30 years & he helps & supports me in everything I do, including my scrapbooking, which I started with in 2003. I had no idea what I was doing in those first few years but as time went by I came to understand what it was truly all about & in 2008 started my blog, which put me in touch with the international crafting scene, which taught me everything I know today.
You can find my blog here & I am on Facebook here, Pinterest here, Instagram here & You-Tube here. I also have the pleasure of designing for Inkido {Papercraftscandinavia}, 2Crafty Chipboard {Australia}, Scrap365 Magazine UK & Scrap Around The World, my own challenge blog.
I have a day job that keeps me busy & I also love to get creative with photography, videos, DIY, decorating, organising & gardening too! Scrapbooking as an art form holds a very special place in my heart & I am over the moon with happiness to have been selected as a designer & ambassador for 7dots Studio!
