Winners and NEW DESIGN TEAM

Good Morning,

I have the privilege to introduce 8 fabulous ladies that will inspire you for the next 6 months.

Let me start with

Amanda 

 My name is Amanda-jayne Baldwin (Amanda / AJ or even @happy_arty_days) & I am so super excited to be joining the Scrap The Boys design team! I am a children's art educator for Little Picassos & am a passionate mixed media and papercraft artist. I love all aspects of colour & creation, and basically not a day passes where I am not in the studio working on something - just the way I like it! 

I began memory keeping about 5yrs ago, when I suddenly realised that I had no photographs of my own childhood to share with my children frown emoticon As a result, I've become a documenting junkie! I love traditional 12 x 12 scrapbooking but... I also really love the more contemporary 8.5 x 11" layouts, as well as mini albums, off the page creations, art journalling, planners...lol - basically if its memory keeping or paper - I love it! I am absolutely inspired by my two beautiful children and my incredibly patient husband. They are my light, and the essence of all my creative joy! And naturally, the reason I scrapbook!
I would describe my style as fun, contemporary, feminine and always with a love of colour! I hope I can inspire you! If you'd like to know more about me, or see more of my creations please don't hesitate to visit my blog;

Anguree
Hello there, my name is Anguree, and I am absolutely thrilled to be part of such an awesome team.
I am married to an awesome guy and live in tropical Darwin, Northern Territory (NT) Australia. We have no children except for a very spoiled Chocolate Labrador.
I was introduced into Scrapbooking somewhere between 2004 and 2005 and have been addicted ever since. I generally scrap 12x12 pages, but also love art journaling, making cards and off the page projects. My style vary from grungy to shabby but I dare say no style is off limits. Over the years I've learnt not to get too tied up in what exactly my style is or should be, but rather to enjoy the process of creating. I love to experiment and try new products, mediums, techniques and all the little discoveries along the road.
I have been very lucky and blessed to have been published in Scrapbook Creations Magazine and Scrapbooking Memories Magazine and have previously been teaching at Scrap Matrix. I'm also very proud to be a design team member for Colour Stories Inspiration(CSI), Kraft Plus and Off the Rails Scrapbooking and Studio M Designs.

 Elisa
  Hi im Elisa, i live in a beautiful part of the North Coast of NSW with my lovely husband and two sons who are my main source of inspiration. I've being scrapbooking since 2003 and i have only recently dived into the online scrapbooking world! I have an eclectic scrapbooking style but i favour mixed media, grungy, colourful unique layouts. I love scrapbooking because not only can you document your life and that of your family around you but i also love the artistic side. I am so honoured to be a part of the Design Team for Scrap the Boys and I can't wait to get to know you all and see all your amazing creations and hopefully provide you with some inspiration along the way to scrap all your boy pages.

Krisy
My name is Krisy. I am 32 and a full time mum to Poppy (3), Leo (2) and Autumn (10 months) and wife to Michael. We all live our crazy full on life in Brisbane, Queensland. I have been scrapbooking since I was at school and well before it was ever an actual thing. At the beginning of 2015 I decided I wanted to share my Scrapbooking. So, I set myself goals and I've spent the last 12 months refining my style and hoping to be noticed. WIthin that 12 months I have been published in Scrapbooking Memories and Jot Magazine, won a few on line challenges, joined Scrap the Girls and D-lish Scraps design teams and was so incredibly lucky to be chosen as a 2016 Scrapbooking Memories Master. I'd describe my style as Eclectic with a bit of sparkle and mixed media. I am so happy to be part of the team and can't wait to show you what I've been working on.

 Rachel D,
 Hi! My name is Rachel Dutko and I live in Adelaide with my husband and our 2 young boys.
I first started scrapbooking about 10 years ago, but after a big break I rediscovered it with a life-changing passion about 2 years ago.
I love the fact that scrapbooking allows me to express my creativity and document my precious memories at the same time.
I'm lucky enough to have had a career in the television industry for the past 15 years, and I am in my craft space most nights for some 'me' time after the daily demands of work and family.
I have been a guest designer at Charm's Creations, and have also been published in Jot Magazine.
I mostly scrap photos of my boys, and I'm so thrilled to be a part of the STB team. I really like using mixed media, texture, and learning new techniques. I think my style is fun, bright, and sometimes messy, 'boy' pages.




Rachel L
 Hi my name is Rachel Lowe and I live in beautiful Perth, WA.

I started scrapbooking in 2006 when my youngest was born. My background in crafts is Folk Art painting and Quilting.

My scrapbooking style has evolved over the years and I love to try new techniques and design styles. I would describe myself as a contemporary/classical scrapper, I love clean lines, layers and negative space.
My inspiration always comes from my photo (I cannot scrap without a chosen photo!) as my page tells the story of the photo in some way.
When I am not scrapping I am living a wonderfully chaotic life as a mum of four children, three gorgeous boys and one daughter. I also work full time as a nurse in the prison system.
My work has been published over the years in Scrapbooking Creations, Scrapbooking Memories and Jot Magazine, it is always a thrill to have your work acknowledged! I have been a guest designer for D-Lish Scraps and currently design for All About Scrapbooks. I love being apart of the scrapbooking family and love to inspire others.



Sue,
I am a SAHM of 3 (daughter Brielle, 7; and twin sons Hunter & Kaden, 3) and live in the beautiful Glasshouse Mountains in Qld.
I have been scrapping for about 7 years, having begun shortly after my daughter was born. I took a break from scrapping (which lasted for almost 18 months!) after the premature birth of my boys and now I find my biggest challenge is finding time with constantly brawling boys under my feet!
I am lucky I now have a little bit of respite from their madness, having recently started working part-time in my local scrap shop. I am also currently on the design teams for Australian manufacturer Cocoa Vanilla Studio and online store D-lish Scraps. (I know how lucky I am, don't worry!)
I am so happy to be able to continue on with the amazing new line-up at STB again this term - thanks for having me back Amy! 




And Finally there is lil' old me.
Amy,
 I'm a fabulous, hardworking, all playing, scrapbook loving, mummy, and future wife. I've been scrapping on and off for a good ten years, my friend and ex boss Lauren Hender 'A Little Piece of Me' dragged me into it. YES I SAID drag. In that time I've had two baby boys and felt ESCTASTIC when i finally found the Scrap the Boys blog. FINALLY somewhere with like minded gorgeous people who share my love for boy scrapping. I took over ownership of Scrap the Boys in March last year. I just LOVE providing inspiration and awesome prizes to fellow scrappers out there.
I design now for Shopandcrop.com.au and have had layouts published in a few magazines while chasing after my mini men.






So THAT is everyone. I am pretty excited to see the beautiful creations these girls can produce.
