Meet the DT - Pt II

We hope you enjoyed last weeks introduction and the wee insight into the worlds of our resident Queens of Crap.

So how about some more - are you ready? Well, here we go!

"Hi I'm Louise and I am happy to admit I am totally addicted to paper crafts.  I live in rural New Zealand on a small lifestyle block with my scrapbook supportive Husband Andrew and our 4 children, who I am sure you will get to know alot better through my layouts.
I am a huge fan of flowers, patterned paper and anything PINK (this can become a little difficult when scrapping my 3 boys).  I love lumpy, bumpy layouts but lately I seem to be tending toward more graphic "flat" looking pages, I think this has more to do with getting my photos scrapped in a more timely manner than the actual "look" of the layout. I also make cards and enjoy sewing ( I said enjoy I did not say I am good at I have started to sew on my layouts recently now that my sewing machine is out on my desk so you will probably see alot of pink, flowers and sewing.  I am so excited to be a part of the SYC team and I am looking forward to getting started"

"I'm from Quebec in Canada.  I share my life with my boyfriend, my three cats and more scrappy supplies than I'll ever be able to use! I'm particularly addicted to paper, clear stamps and flowers (okay… and glimmer mists, and bling, and chipboard, and … you get the picture! lol!) I love to travel, and scrapbooking fits right into that passion for me. I scrap mostly my trips, and while I'm working on a layout, I'm immersed back into the place I'm scrapping. I forget everything else other than trying to find the perfect papers and embellies to match my photos! It's my escape!
I'm so excited to be on this team! I hope you'll join us! "

”I am a full-time social service worker, but that does not stop me from daydreaming about paper, glue, embellishments, and glitter all day! I am constantly writing down ideas and conversations that "need" to be documented!  Scrapbooking is the perfect outlet for me to express all the random daily thoughts that I want to remember as well as the milestone events for my family.

When I am not working or crafting I can be found spending quality time with my husband and our two sons at the movies, park, or sporting events or curled up with my sweet bulldog, Bella, watching TLC, HGTV, or some cheesy Chiller movie. I love looking at things through a creative lens because I think everything is better with a little embellishment.”


”Hello, my name is Norine.  I'm a not-quite-50 yr old, mother of 4+ a daughter-in-law, married to Paul for 30 years, misplaced Canadian living in Arizona. I've been "scrapping" since my teens, but made it my official hobby in 2003.  Before that it was cross stitch, folk art painting, pretty much anything "crafty".

All my life I have loved photos. Even ones of people I don't know. And I've loved the stories that each photo tells. But eventually the story-tellers are gone and (if we’re lucky) the photo albums remain and while it's fun to imagine the story behind each picture, it's much more satisfying to know the real story. That is what motivates me to put pictures and pen to paper.  Well, that and the patterned paper.  Oh, and the mists and rub-ons and ribbon and chipboard.

Four kids, one endlessly supportive husband and many varied interests (cooking, reading, snowboarding, travel, photography, cottaging) provide me with more photos than I will ever get scrap booked, but in the meantime, I'm having a great time messing around with fun and artistic techniques and products. And when I need to sound more credible, I refer to myself as the "Guardian of my Family's History".  I'm thrilled to be part of the Scrap your Crap DT and look forward to alleviating some of my "hoarding guilt" by contributing here!”


"I am wife to a wonderful husband and Mom of our two beautiful daughters, two terrific sons and one great son in law. Originally from New England, Southern California is now our home. When not taking care of my family, I can often be found in my studio with my two precious Labrador Retrievers right beside me. My paper crafting focus is mostly on cards, but certainly scrapbook pages and altered items are common projects for me as well. I also enjoy doing counted cross stitch and baking. I love antiques, vintage things and estate jewelry- and "the hunt" for them by way of antiques stores and flea markets. I also love spending time at nearby Disneyland or walking along the beautiful beaches and enjoying the sunny, warm weather of SoCal.
I am so happy to be joining the design team of SYC! I look forward to the fun ahead here while using up my overflowing stash and hopefully bringing you some inspiration along the way. "

There you have it - all the skinny on our brand spanking new DT, who have already been mega busy to bring you our first challenge for this year on 15 March 2012.

See you then!
