JULY INTERNATIONAL GUEST DESIGNER #1

Hi, I'm back again for the second NEW share this month the International Guest Designer.  The first International is one that has played along with Scrap the Girls for sometime now.  Her take on the sketch is fantastic. Her use of papers in her layouts amazes me.

Please welcome ROMY VEUL.



"My name is Romy Veul and I'm a 23-year-old scrapbooker and cardmaker from the Netherlands. I have been scrapbooking for almost half of my life, as I started scrapbooking when I was only 13 years old. I love this hobby, as it is a great creative outlet and a wonderful way to document my memories. Besides scrapbooking, I have just got my master's degree as  a linguist at University and currently working as a junior researcher. When I'm not working or scrapbooking, I love to spend time with friends and family. 

I really loved the sketch and had lots of fun working with it. I was inspired by the two clusters of embellishments and papers in the sketch and by the circles. I replaced the circle-shaped papers by two chipboard circles. The girl in the picture is my adorable niece Elise. Isn't she just too cute in her Spanish dress?"

MAY WINNER

Hiya, 

All the layouts submitted to the May Sketch challenge were absolutely amazing.  It is so hard to pick a winner when you sit down and look at them all individually.  The different takes on the challenge always have me thinking about ways I would have done the challenge differently and how I can pair different papers, techniques and embellishments together. There has to be a winner and this month it is:




Tania's layout is amazing and doesn't feature any girly colours which is a nice change for a girl challenge blog.  She has stuck pretty close to the sketch with lots of layers and a bit of mixed media thrown in for good measure.  Tania if you would like to message me I will arrange for your surprise pack from AJ to be sent to you.  

Thank you to everyone who linked up last month.  I can't wait to see what you come up with for this months Moodboard challenge.  The prize this month is a Just Add Paper Embellishment pack from D-lish Scraps.  If you haven't played with one before I would highly recommend trying to get your hands on one.  They are limited so get in quick.

PLEASE WELCOME THE NEW DESIGN TEAM (June - January 2017)

Good Morning, Pinch and a Punch for the first of the month.  Welcome to Winter in Australia!  Today I am so excited to be sharing with you the new Design Team.  There are a few new additions and a few familiar faces that have opted to stay on for another term.

So without further ado....


Welcome to:

Tania Ballestrin

Tania from Adelaide and currently living in the Northern Territory.  She is currently on a few other Design Teams so you may have seen her work already.  Tania's work is very pretty with a bit of mixed media thown in. You are going to love her style.

Michelle Stokes

Michelle is a very familiar face.  She is one of the 2016 Scrapbooking Memories Masters and is currently also on the design team for D-lish Scraps.  Michelle's style is very clean and feminine.  She loves a cut file.

Lucie Forte

Lucie is a bit of International flavour for the team.  Lucie is from St-Philippe, on the south shore of Montreal, Quebec (Canada). She is French spoken and her layouts often feature a French title and journalling.  (Don't worry she will provide us with a translation and we all might learn a little French along the way.) Lucies Style, I think, is bordering on girl grunge.  Just not quite so dark.  Her layouts feature mixed media backgrounds, a lot of flowers and her little girl.

Anita Bownds

Anita is a Queensland girl and a face you might recognise.  She is on the design teams Kaisercraft and Couture Creations.  Anita describes her style as clean with a splash of mixed media.

That the four fresh new faces then we have these beautiful ladies returning for another term with the team:

Tammy Klinger

Rikki Graziani

Amanda Hartmann

AJ Reddicliffe

Ros Madley

Mandy Melville

Audrey Underwood

And myself - Krisy Podolak

This month the team has put some fantastic samples together for a wonderful moodboard created by our very own Rikki Graziani, so make sure you check out the post and link up later today.
