My Bio

My name is Gudrun Loennecken, I was born 13th of june 1974. Mom of 4 children, married to my true love. We live in Oslo, the capital of Norway. Ever since I was a child I have been in love with beautiful patterned paper, colors, photography and making art of all kinds. I discovered scrapbooking trough internet about 13 years ago, and have been a passionate scrapbooker ever since. I love to make art, I love to scrap, to create and try out new techniques and new ways of using old techniques, to get messy and have fun creating stuff, to play with colors and patterns and make little pieces of art. I have earned my degree in art-photography at Olso Fotokunstskole (Oslo Photo-art school) in 2000. I am owner,( and founder toghether with my friend Lene Solhaug) and designer at the tiny Norwegian design-company http://www.3ndypapir.no/. We design patterned paper mostly for Scandinavian scrapbookers, but have also had great international success, and our papers are sold in New Zealand, Brazil and Singapore as well as in several European countries.

I'm mother of the paper-piecing and stamp-company "gunns papirmølle" est. 2003.

I also do freelance designing for other companies and individuals; I design the very popular cut out sheets for Minnehjørnet, Christmas Stamps for Happy Hobby etc.

I love to teach, and I have a lot of scrapbooking and photo-classes in my Local scrapbook-stores in Oslo and Ski, but also all over Norway. The possibility to share my joy for scrapbooking and papercraft always gives me plenty of inspiration and new creative energy.
