July 1st Sketch

Good morning!

It's a cold, wet and miserable day here in Brisbane today. Definitely the perfect weather for a bit of scrapping and that means its great timing for our newest sketch.

This month we have another fabulous guest designer joining us, Kasia Tomaszewska.

My name is Kasia, I am 26 years old and I come from Poland but for last years I've been living abroad,at the moment my home is in magical and eclectic Istanbul in Turkey. Life in here is exciting and brings many adventures, I love capturing everyday memories, I believe that even the tiniest things deserve to get documented and my favorite way to do so is through various scrapbooking projects! I don't work and stay at home which allows me to give a significant amount of time to my hobby.Besides of scrapbooking and blogging about it on my blog worqshop I enjoy cooking and love trying new recipes, I make many lists and plans and I'm addicted to running. In the evenings you will find me curled up on the sofa with my fiance, watching movies or tv shows, drinking tea and browsing through our Instagram feeds!

 And now for the new sketch and some amazing samples from our Creative Team.

June 1st sketch

Good afternoon

And welcome to the start of a new season. I'm hoping that it's not too cold of a Winter this year. I definitely don't like the cold!

This month we have a fabulous new guest designer, Christin Gronnslett.
My name is Christin Grønnslett, I am a 39 year old living in Norway with husband and kids (3 and 6) - Anea and Troy. I first came into contact with scrapbooking 11 years ago after a brief stay in the US when I wanted to document our travels when I got home. I starting to look for inspiration and I search and shopped for years, even had my own room for years before I actually started scrapbooking something for myself - I mostly made albums as gifts to friends and family. But in 2008 my life changed, I met the world of cropping, and I loved getting to know new scrapbook friends and see IRL what other people was making, and from then on I started to scrapbook more often and after the birth of our daughter in 2009 I started to scrapbook a little every day and now I can't imagine just hanging out on the couch anymore when the kids are asleep - I want to scrap instead.
 
I started out as a pretty clean and simple scrapper, even though I bought tons of flowers, I couldn't relly get it to work for me. In a way I still think my style have just evolved in that I still don't use many flowers, I like prefer clean and fresh colors. What has changed is that I have included more layers of paper and other materials and that I have more mixed media products on my page. I still have huge problems making a layout where I can't have white space. I always want the photo to be my focal point and I feel that filling up a page with lots of paper and lots of decorations draw the eyes away from my photos.

I am lucky enough to design for Pink Paislee, Papirdesign, Zva Creative, The Color Room, Scrap Around the World and a Norwegian store called Gode Minner.
 
And now onto the sketch and Creative Team samples.
