Meet our New DT Members!

Hello!

I would like to take a few minutes today to introduce your to our new Design Team, these scrappers will begin sharing their designs with you on October 1st!

I was so humbled by the overwhelming response that we had to our latest DT call, thank you to everyone that applied!  It is always difficult decision to choose one scrapper over another, super stressful actually - I am not an art critic nor do I want anyone to feel that their talent is less than that of anyone else, because of course it isn't.  I typically look to fit as many different styles of scrappers as I can onto our team of 12, to hopefully provide inspiration to as many of our wonderful readers as possible.

So without further ado, please meat our new members:

Cassie Wiscarson
Documenting my family’s stories and adventures is a huge passion of mine. I have been married to my husband for 12 years now and we have one smart and funny 8 year old daughter and two fluffy, furry dogs. I started scrapbooking back in 2005 after my husband joined the Army.  My hobby has traveled with me throughout the world.  I think about scrapbooking every single day, I might be slightly obsessed, but this hobby brings such joy to my life and I love sharing my passion with others. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t do something scrapbooking related. I love being able to combine my photographs with fun and beautiful supplies to tell the story of my life and my family.
Cassie's blog.


Dana Tatar
I am a stay-at-home mom currently living in Virginia with my husband and two daughters. I started paper crafting about 8 years ago and have expanded from scrapbooking and now create a little of everything, including cards, tags, ATCs, arches and small gift and home decor items. I frequently find inspiration in music, poetry and pop culture. I’m an active blogger and I like to share my tips and ideas. When I’m not creating art, I enjoy cooking and baking, reading, listening to music and spending time outdoors with my family. 
Dana's blog.


Devra Hunt
I live in the Seattle, WA area and am the COO of my two teenage boys, husband, and our dog, a yellow lab named Snickers. When I'm not scrapping, I like to read, enjoy long walks with my dog, and a night out with friends. I live for baseball season, and am always dreaming of the beach. Oh, and when I retire, I want to be Snow White in the Disneyland Parade. I have been scrapping since I received my first scrapbook as a birthday gift in 1998. I love how the hobby continues to evolve and gives me reason to try new things, and evolve as well.  If I had to describe my style, I’d say it’s humorous and colorful.  There is usually a pun on my pages somewhere. I enjoy trying new trends and techniques (some more than others) and seeing how I can make them work for me.  I scrap it all, the good, the bad, the funny, and yes, the ugly.  And with my family as my primary subjects, I am never a loss for new material.
Elisabetta Colavero
Elisabetta Colavero (Eli) and I'm italian: I love sun,  pizza and ice cream!  Born on the 3rd of March, 1973, I  have a daughter Noemi, 12 years old, who is the favorite subject of my projects.  We live in a nice cottage in a little city with 2 old cats. I'm graduated in Agriculture, and I work for the Province of Cremona, Agricultural department. But I'm very lucky! I can work at home, so I have time to devote to my hobbies: reading, sporting, gardening, and of course, scrapbooking. I started
about 10 years ago, and I prefer to make layouts and sometimes  mini albums. The cards, instead, simply hate me!  I have no defined style, because I like changes and I try always new techniques. Scrapbooking for me it's like a drug... It allows me to express the artistic side of me and, at the same time, to create something that preserves forever my fondest memories. My slogan is: "Do not throw anything away" , both in scrapbooking and in cooking. Yes, I'm a good cook too!
Elisabetta's blog.


Kumiko Kimura
Nice meet you. My name is Kumiko,kimura. I live in Japan. I'm married and have three daughters. I started scrapbooking 9 years ago. I like to make layouts from sketches. I am good at making layouts that pop.Let's enjoy creating together!
Sarah Wilkins
I'm Sarah, married to Pete for 22 years. Mum to Jack (age 17) and Sam (age 14), Mumma also to two furbabies Sandi and Dara (Burmese cats).  I have been scrapbooking for over 8 years, I dabble a bit in card making, but scrapbooking is my true love.  I love taking photos, my boys and cats are my main subjects, I take my camera everywhere with me!  I have a very busy life as I work part-time in our local hospital laboratory as a Biomedical Scientist, (this includes night shifts too).  I am also a trustee for a local charity which supports families with children who have special needs, this is a charity we use as Jack has ADHD and Sam is Autistic, without this charity our life would be very different.  I love to cook and I dabble in a bit of cupcake baking!  I am very busy, life isn't dull and crafting is my time. Crafting is how I relax, how I switch off from the everyday life and stresses.  I love scrapbooking as I love to record every treasured moment of my growing family.


Valerie Andrieux
I'm a French mom of 2 daughters who lives in France, for now. I started scrapbooking with my first newborn but also because I discovered it within my first expatriation in Houston, Texas. My inspiration came mostly from the people I love and care about, and sometimes I create only for the fun to play with a new toy. I like to scrapbook, make cards and altered projects, and create almost everyday.


We also have a few returning members, the following ladies will be continuing on with us for another term.




 

 

Thanks for visiting today! Please don't forget that you still have a few more days to play along with our September 1st and 15th challenges, be sure to link up Tuesday by midnight EST for your change at our prizes or guest spot. Winners will be announced some time on Wednesday and our new challenge will be live on Thursday morning!

Evalicious is a small home based company in Canada that offers scrapbooking paper tags, puffy stickers, wood veneer, clear/rubber stamps and more.

ALSO, we want to show you how much we appreciate that you play along with us and share your designs and talent with us so we will be choosing one scrapbooker from each challenge to guest with us at a later date!  For example, our chosen scrapbooker from our September 1st challenge will guest for our November 1st challenge! 


Now let's get started with the challenge, here is your sketch....


This week we have another guest designer joining us. Please join me in welcoming Åsa Johansson!!


I will let Åsa tell you a bit about herself....

"Hi! My name is Åsa Johansson and I´m from Sweden. I live in the middle of Sweden with my partner and our three kids and a dog. I work as a teacher and I´m 39 years old. I´ve loved scrapbooking and cardmaking since 2007. It´s an addiction, a lovely one. It´s my way to relax. I do layouts or cards most of the time but I even try to do some project life now and then. My style is to have much white space, layering, mists and I just love the colour pink. I like to have a sketch to follow and I sometimes draw my own. I visit a lot of blogs to get inspiration. I started my own blog back in 2012. At first I always wrote in Swedish but now I´m trying my best to write in english. It isn´t always the correct spelling or the right words but I hope you can understand it at least. The world of blogging is wonderful I think, you get to know so many new friends out there in different countries. I hope you will visit my blog to say hi! http://scrapatheltenkelt.blogspot.se/ I´m so proud that Laura asked me if I wanted to be a guest designer here at Stuck?! I use to interpret the lovely sketches here each month and this sketch is just stunning! I hope you´ll get inspired of my work."

Here is Åsa's layout based on our sketch.


Thank you for joining us Åsa!  Now lets have a look at our gorgeous DT reveals (in alphabetical order!)....
