NEW STB Creative Team

I hope you can make welcome our new Creative Team for September - February, we have a lovely mix of scrappers each with their own individual style, I hope you make them all welcome!

Linda Oevestad (Norway)


My name is Linda; I’m a 30 year old girl from the small town Egersud in Norway.
I live together with my husband, Eirik and our son, Jesper how’s just turned 5.
He is definitely the one I scrap the most, and I love making albums to tell his story
of growing up.
So scrapping boys - that’s just what I do! :)

I get a lot of inspiration from different blogs, and can use hours just surfing the internet and looking at beautiful art!
When I scrapbook I am addicted of having a challenge... It can be a sketch, colour challenge, word challenge... or realty anything, but I need something to work after!

I find it difficult to describe my scrapbooking style, but I love cluster, colours, gesso and mist. I am a member of two design teams: That’s just so cute(www.thatsjustsocute.blogspot.com) and Bird is the word (http://birdisthewordchallenge.blogspot.com)

You can see all my work in my blog: www.strikkeogscrappe.blogspot.com


Kim Ewins...

Hello, my name is Kim Ewins.

I am a SAHM of eight Children, (well 2 have left the nest so far). I have 5 boys and 3 girls…..all to the same hubby. (Sorry I get asked that so often!)

My sons are Alexander-22, Rhys-20, Mason-15, McKenzie-8 and Hugo-5. They are lots of fun!!!

I first started scrapbooking in 2006 and my passion has just grown from there.

I am on the dt/ct for; Craftqueen, Stuck?!Sketches, Orange Paperie & Co and Scrap That Song.

My style is on the grunge/shabby side….and I tend to stick more to neutrals and pastels.

My blog is: www.lifeisabalancingactx8.blogspot.com

NANCY GAGNON -Owarde (Canada)
Nancy lives in Sept-iles, Qu├ębec.
She is the mother of three beautiful boys who are real treasures in her eyes. For 7 years now, she has expressed her passion through scrapbooking.

Everything that surrounds it is inspiring, but it is especially my favorite photos of my family that are found on my pages. I am not tied to any particular style, I love them all, love to experiment and love to explore new techniques.

For Nancy, scrapbooking is a time of release and escape of choice, She is a DT member of scrap-o-mania and the magazine Scrapbook Extra

Here is a link to her blog:

Marelle Jackman...
My name is Marelle Jackman, and I have been scrapping for 9 years, I am currently on the DT for 123 challenge and Blackwith2.
I also run a hand made challenge site called showusyourstuff.blogspot.com. I have a team of 11 designers and have one challenge per month with a children's challenge running each month also.
I live outside Geelong, Victoria, although I have two girls, I love to scrap my friend's little boy and my nephew called Clem who is 4years old. It makes a nice change from girly layouts.


Dot Pawlowski...
Hi, my name is Dot Pawlowski and I live in Perth, Western Australia. I'm a part time hospital worker, though my most rewarding job is being a mum to my 2 year old boy.
I've always had a creative outlet such as dance, sewing and various crafts, and started scrapbooking about 8 years ago.

In the past year I've become very addicted to it and blame my sister for this as she introduced me to challenge blogs! My style often changes because I'm always getting inspired to try something new by the many amazing scrap-artists out there with internet blogs.

Lately I'm loving using paint, washi tape, twine and little square alphabet stickers!

I feel very honoured to be on the Scrap The Boys team and hope you like my contributions :)

STB JULY WINNERS & Important Information...

There are some changes to how our winners are now selected, this goes for my other sites, Kraft It Up and White With 1, from now on there will be 1 CT winner, 1 Random winner and if there is a third sponsor I will alternate between a 2nd random winner and a winner picked by myself.

After I had some information back from readers of the Scrap The Boys blog I have thought a lot about how to make it fairer for everyone involved in regards to winning prizes, I know that there are a lot of challenge sites out there and sometimes it may seem that the same people are winning, I do try not to have this happen on my sites, I dont have a lot of spare time to see who wins other challenges however I do try and make sure that the same people dont win over and over again here, I hope you find the new voting/winning system to be fair....

Also when we have an International entry that is picked by a large number of the CT for our HM vote they will now be offered a Guest CT spot, so if you are an International reader keep an eye out each month to see if your entry and been picked!!!

SCRAP THERAPY...
We have closed our other business to focus wholly on Scraptherapy, opening a Paper Craft Bricks and Mortar store in Babinda, FNQ to run in conjunction with the online site. During the last 2+ years we have learnt a whole load of stuff about e-commerce, scrapbooking, cardmaking and the people who love these hobbies.

At www.scraptherapy.com.au you will find a fantastic gallery filled with inspiring ideas, a great community of ladies and an odd guy or two in our online forum. Our Design Team backed up by our Big Sisters offer regular competitions and challenges to help you find your mojo, and a chance to win a shopping voucher or two. Then of course there is the shop where we hope you will find all the latest Linkand greatest products at great prices. If you can’t find what you are looking for feel free to contact me at lee-anne@scraptherapy.com.au and check to see if we can get it in for you. We often can.

Our freight charges for orders up to $25 is $9.00, orders between $25 to $100 stay at $6 and orders over $100 are now free. I love scrapbooking and Danny can whip up a pretty good card, but our true passion is excelling in great customer service, which we hope to continue to do for years to come.

Scrap Therapy have donated a $25.00 voucher.
