CREATIVE TEAM 2017

Introducing our 2017 Design Team
in no particular order ...



I live on the Central Coast of New South Wales, Australia which is a 90 minute drive North of Sydney. I am a wife to a wonderful husband who is very supportive of my scrapbooking and a mother of two - a 22 year old girl and a 17 year old boy. I began my scrapbook journey around 11 years ago and I mainly scrapbook about my family. I love to create and experiment with many different mediums and techniques. I also love using lots of flowers. One of the main reasons I started scrapbooking was to preserve memories and photos for my children. My style is always evolving and that is one of the things I love about scrapbooking. 



I live in Germany in the heart of the most wonderful part of it, in Bavaria. I am a mother of two, a son, who doesn´t live at home any more and a 16 year old daughter, living with me in our girly home. By profession I´m a teacher for needlework and home economics. In my spare time I love to do something of my desire, Mixed Media, scrapbooking, stamping, card making, altering things, off the page projects - most time some of them happen at the same time. I started art journaling too and I love the freedom of creating I can have in there. I have been crafting all my life. I tried many techniques, from working with fabric and wool to working with wood and clay to altering furniture and drawing.



I am a happy mom of five awesome kids ( age 20 to 2), a wife, hairdresser and a scrap addicted woman. I live in a small village in Sweden. Besides scraping, going to our cabin in the Swedish mountains with my family just chillin is a great relaxation. I have been scrapbooking for real since 2012, before that I mostly did cardmaking but only sporadically.



I am a wife to a fire fighter, happily married nearly 30 years, and mother of three, 2 boys and a girl. I have been scrapbooking since 1998 and my style is eclectic .I have been told numerous times that I have multiple personalities when I scrapbook. My main style revolves around layers and chipboard. I love to learn new things from all the beautiful scrap bookers who share their talents and then play with them to add variety to my pages.



 I live in Norway just north of the capitol Oslo. I live with my husband and son and I also have a stepdaughter. I've always taken pictures and put them in albums, but I have been scrapping since 2004. The last two or three years I have also started making cards and I have relatively recently start with PL pages. I guess I am one of few that scrap everything and chronologically. Scrapping is my way to retrieve energy and relax. I do not know if I have any special style and if I have I do not quite know what category it falls under. I'm very fond of using stencil and mist and make LO with layers. 



I have been scrapping for more than 10 years and over that time I have tried lots of different techniques. However, I hope I have stuck to the idea that the purpose of scrapbooking is to document life’s moments both for myself and future generations (hopefully). I live in tropical north Queensland with my husband. We are so grateful that we are able to see our children and grandchildren often and they feature in much of my work. I love many forms of creative work and have a particular passion for sewing as well as scrapbooking so I do often combine the two. 



I'm a craftaholic who lives in Melbourne with my husband, three year old son and adopted greyhound. I've been scrapbooking for about 3 years but have been playing with paper (e.g. making handmade cards) for as long as I can remember. I also enjoy other crafts, such as sewing, quilting and glass tile mosaics and often like to incorporate elements of these into my papercraft. I love participating in various craft challenges because they inspire me to try new styles and techniques.



I live on the Gold Coast with my husband Wes, who I might add is very supportive of my scrapbooking addiction. We have two teenage children who keep me busy driving them around everywhere they need to go. They are the reason I started scrapbooking 15 plus years ago. Recently I have started taking part in monthly challenges. I love seeing what other people create and how they interpret things. I am really enjoying using mixed media elements on my work, not bad for someone who hated getting her hands messy! Something I do love about scrapbooking is how our style can change just with new products being introduced.



I'm from the beautiful city Saint-Petersburg, Russia. I'm a happy woman, a happy wife, a happy mother of two beautiful children (a girl and a boy). I like my job as an assistant professor in Saint-Petersburg Technical University. And I'm in love with scrapbooking since 2008 (and even before 2008, when I wasn't aware that the things I love to do are called "scrapbooking" :). I like to create layouts 30x30, albums and cards. My inspiration is all around me - my family, my city, Nature, paintings ...



I took up scrapbooking about 3 years ago and instantly fell in love with messy mixed media supplies – paint, gesso, texture paste. I’m still exploring my preferred style and enjoy light bright colours as well as grungy deep colours. As long as the colours and embellishments assist with telling the story of the piece, I’m content for the moment.



I live in Busselton, Western Australia. I have been married for 16 years and have 4 children; 3 girls and 1 boy. I started scrapbooking 15 years ago and it became my passion when my son was born and later diagnosed with Autism. Scrapbooking has helped me preserve the good memories we have throughout the difficult times. I like to use different medians and techniques and often wish my poor art teacher could see my work now after my lack of skills during art lessons. I love to use lots of elements in my pages but my main aim is to keep the photo and memories the focus. I love the journey scrapbooking has taken me including meeting so many amazing people through the blogging world.



I live in south of Sweden with my husband and our daughter. For my profession I am a PhD and an investigator in a state authority. I have always loved playing with colors in different ways, which has resulted in hobbies like interior design, to design and sewing clothing and gardening/garden design. When I found out about scrapbooking that quickly became my new passion! I just love the colors, patterned papers, embellishments, stamps, masks, mixed media products and so on… I always use some kind of mixed media products on my layouts and I like to challenge myself to try new techniques. For me, scrapbooking is the perfect way to combine a creative process with a way to save memories from our daughter’s childhood.



I am a scrapbooker/crafter from Ottawa, Canada. I like making really artsy scrapbook pages that showcase the theme of the photos. I like to scrapbook about me and my husband, travel, our pets, family and hobbies. I also love making cards for people, and all sorts of different crafts. I have been doing this for about 7 years. My scrapbook style is artsy mixed with a bit of whimsy, though my cards tend to be a bit more simple. Overall, I am a maximallist and love to include a variety of little details and I get my inspiration from a variety of unique sources.


BLOG 

I have been scrapping now for well over ten years using this wonderful craft as both my creative outlet and a way to preserve my family’s precious memories. I scrap using both traditional paper and digital methods, mixing my pages equally amongst these two styles. My personal layout style has evolved over the years and while I will happily try a mix of varied techniques, I do tend to lean towards a clean, relatively simple style with heavy emphasis on white space. I like to capture not only those special events in our lives but also everyday family moments.
