Welcome back, Shuly!

Hi everyone! It's my pleasure to announce that we have another new DT member! Please join me in welcoming Shuly back to the Love To Scrap Challenge Blog Design Team! She will begin creating with us on January 1st! And be sure to check out Shuly's blog - Shuly cartes - we know you're going to be in love with her work!

So, without further ado, here's our new teammie...


Hey everyone!

Shuly here, super excited to be part of this fabulous team! Thank you Leslie for the kind invitation, I’m honored beyond words!!

I’m 44, I live in south east France, I married a man I met at my brother’s wedding some 13 years back; I immediately knew he was the one. He has been my love, my best friend, my support ever since. We are raising 4 adorable girls (3, 5, 9 and 11 years old) in a kind of Everest climb (it’s tiring, it’s crazy (what were we thinking having 4 kids) but it’s our greatest pride and happiness).

As for scrap I have a passion for cute stamps and I love all styles really, from loaded cards to clean and simple. I am constantly trying out new techniques, new ways of coloring or new layout ideas. i use water paint, markers or pencils. I find scrap both exciting and relaxing. But most of all I love how kind scrappers can be and how talented they all are to pick out the most charming details to show how touching and beautiful the world can be.

Big hugs,
Shuly

Welcome back, Shuly! We're excited you've joined us and we're looking forward to lots of fun creating! :)

Big hugs,
Leslie & the DT

Welcome, Penny!

Hi everyone! I'm back with another piece of exciting news today! I'm delighted to introduce you to a new member of our design team! Please join me in welcoming Penny to the Love To Scrap Challenge Blog DT! She will begin creating with us on January 1st! Check out her her blog - Sunshinepens Rambles - we know you're going to love what you see!

So, without further ado, heeeeere's Pen...


I am Penny Hewitt, known as Pen (Sunshinepens Rambles), and live in a beautiful log cabin in North Devon with my partner Dennis. I am a Partner, Mum and Grandma with 5 grandchildren whose ages are from 4 years to 19 years, where does the time go?

I have always been a crafty sort of person, dabbling in watercolor paints for many years, sewing since I was a child but photography being my passion. Although that has taken a bit of a back seat since starting my blog :)

Being a keen photographer and wishing to share my photos with others I started making Photo Cards and they became a great success. Then around this time a couple of years ago, I thought I am sure I could expand my art work and so Handmade cards developed and have expanded.selling them at our local Village Coffee Mornings and craft fairs.

Maybe I would say I am a perfectionist in my work, if it’s not right with me then it’s not right. But I have learnt over the years that sometimes a mistake is a blessing - if you put your work away for another day and look at it with "different eyes".

I love to try something new, whether it be card making, sewing, painting, or mixed media.

So I am looking forward to sharing my work with you.

Crafty hugs,
Pen


Welcome aboard, Pen! We're excited you've joined us and we're looking forward to lots of fun creating! :)

Big hugs,
Leslie & the DT

Welcome Lori and Sherry!

Hi everyone! Hope you're having an amazing weekend! I'm absolutely thrilled to introduce you to the newest designers on the Love To Scrap Challenge Blog DT! Lori and Sherry will both begin creating with us on January 1st, and they both come to us with loads of craftiness! We couldn't be prouder to call them our teammies!

Without further ado, here are Lori and Sherry...

Lori
Blog - My Happy Life
Hello! My name is Lori, and I am so excited to be a part of the Love to Scrap Challenge Blog DT! I live in a small town in SW Missouri with my husband, Scott, and we have 3 kids and one granddaughter, whom I get the pleasure of watching during the week while her Mommy teaches! I started scrapbooking in 1998 and card making soon followed. There is nothing that relaxes me more than spending time in my craft room making pretty things! I have a pretty clean and simple style, although once in a while I do like to add a lot of layers to my projects. You can find more of my work at My Happy Life.




I'm Sherry, I was born in Kentucky and moved to Washington. I am married, I have three children and four grandchildren. I have enjoyed all types of arts and crafts ever since I can remember. Painting, needlework, scrapbooking, crocheting, cross-stitch, drawing and coloring - paper and pixels. When my children where little I enjoyed creating cards with a computer program, now I really enjoy making cards by hand. I am so very excited to be a part of the Love To Scrap Challenge Blog Design Team!


Welcome aboard, ladies! We are looking forward to lots of fun crafting with both of you!

Big hugs,
Leslie & the DT
