CT Introductions - Part 1

Let's start getting to know our new Autumn / Winter Team a little bit better.

Over the next few days, I will be introducing a few of them each day. Today we are meeting Atsuko Hashimoto, Celeste Vermeend and Farheen Suhail.

Atsuko Hashimoto
Hello there everyone!! My name is Atsuko and I am from Japan. I live in Okayama (kinda central Japan geographically) with my loving family containing my ever so cool hubby and 2 kids. The oldest is a boy at 12 and his sister is at 6.

I think my favorite design style is simple but I love multi layers for added dimensions. One thing I never do without is to write a journal on every pages to keep memories more fresh every time we look at them.

I have loved being on the design team for 'Stuck?! Sketches and I am really excited to have the opportunity to do a second term here

And one of her favourite layouts:

Celeste Vermeend
I have been scrapbooking for almost 9 years. I first scrapbooked my baby twins premature birth and their stay in hospital. It was a stressful and emotional time and I felt I needed to document it more creatively and that led me to my local scrapbook store. The rest is history! I am now a mother to five. Having had two more little ones after my twins and oldest daughter. I live a busy and chaotic life that I wouldn’t have any other way – most of the time! My love of scrapbooking eventually led to photography. And I now run a small business from home and I love it. Up until my last two children were born I had been regularly published in all three Australian scrapbooking magazines. I have held a DT position on the now defunct For Keeps magazine. I was also a Scrapbooking Memories Master in 2008. I no longer submit my layouts for publishing preferring instead to enter online challenges. I feel honoured to be a part of the Stuck Sketches design team and am very grateful for the opportunity to step back into a designing role after quite a long absence.

And one of her favourite layouts:

Farheen Suhail
Hello everyone!! My name is Farheen and I live in Northern New Jersey, USA (which is very close to New York City), with my husband and my 4-yr old boy. I am an Engineer in computers by profession and was into software development but currently a SAHM.

Scrapbooking is a craft where I can blend art with photo and design, and use it for capturing all the cherished moments in a unique way.

I love scrapbooking because it reflects all the passion I have for arts since childhood.

I recently started scrapbooking so have not developed any style yet but I mostly love doing mixed media layouts using paint, sprays/mists, masking, and stamping. I also enjoy a bit of grunge on the layouts.

I am so excited to be joining my first DT.  Stuck sketches are wonderful and inspiring and the DT is incredible. I am really honored and excited to be part of it and very grateful for the wonderful opportunity it has given to me.

There will be more introductions tomorrow.
