Meet Our New Design Team!


Hello! I am super excited to be here today to share our brand new design team with you!  This talented group of memory keepers will be sharing their art with you from October 1st 2016 to March 31st 2017 and I couldn't be more thrilled to have them join Stuck?! Sketches!

So with out further ado, let me introduce our new members to you, in alphabetical order.

Hi! My name is Åsa Johansson and I´m from Sweden. I have just turned 40 and work as a teacher. I have 3 kids and they are almost always in the pictures in my layouts. I´m addicted to scrapbooking and card making since 2007. It´s a lovely addiction and it´s my way to relax and feel good. I started my blog in 2012, please come visit and say hi!

My style varies depending on the mood. I usually use much white space with a lot of layers. I love to use thread and mists on my pages. My favourite color is pink!
I´m so proud to be a part of this design team! I hope I can inspire you a lot during this time. See you out there!
Hugs Åsa

Hi, I'm Debbi Tehrani. I'd like to start out by saying how excited and honored I am to be joining the Stuck?! Sketches. I live in Frederick, Maryland, with Farzad, my husband of 35 years. We have no children, but we have two cats and two bearded dragons. One of the beardies accompanies me to school, where I teach fourth grade. I've been scrapping since 2000. I scrap 8 x 8, and I love telling stories on my pages and using elements that will help to tell my stories. For me, scrapbooking is a creative outlet and a way to capture and celebrate all the random little things that make my life special and meaningful. I love a scrapbooking challenge, and I've been on a bunch challenge design teams over the years, including Creative Scrappers, How Much Is Too Much, Sketchabilities, Creative Prompts for You, Color Combos Galore, and Sketchbook365. I’m currently on the 2Crafty design team. I also designed for Work in Progress kits and was a designer and writer for Scrapbook News & Review. My pages have been published in Scrapbook Trends, Scrapbooks, Etc., Simple Scrapbooks, and Scrap365, as well as several online publications. I founded and create for CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration. The internet has transformed my hobby from a solitary passion to one that I can share with online friends I have made all over the world. If you'd like to see more of my work, I'd love for you to come visit my blog, Little Scraps of Magic.

I’ve been a scrapbooker and card maker for 10 years or more and I love everything about this craft. With three grandsons and a granddaughter, I’m happy making bright and grungy, soft and feminine and anything else in between. I live in Adelaide, South Australia, although I grew up in the country and a piece of my heart is still there.
My style is eclectic; I like trying new techniques, playing with stencils, texture paste, metal and chipboard, as well as flowers and bling. Sometimes my page begins with just a germ of an idea and end up with something totally unexpected. That’s why I like challenges, ‘cos they steer my in directions I wouldn’t necessarily wander.
Telling the story behind the photo, it what drives me to create and there is almost always a big slab of journaling on or behind the page.
I’ve previously designed for CSI, Meg’s Garden, Scrap Africa and currently for Scrapmatts. My work has been published in "Scrapbooking Memories" and "Australian Scrapbooking Ideas. “

My name is Kelly Barron, and I live in Virginia. I have been married to my husband for 18 years and we have two teenagers who keep us on our toes! I have loved all things crafty for as long as I can remember. My mother taught me to cross stitch and latch hook, and that was a love throughout my childhood. I stumbled upon scrapbooking after my son was born in 2000 and have been in love with the hobby ever since. There is just something so special about playing with pretty papers and embellishments that is just therapy for my soul, with the added bonus of documenting our lives. I also love to knit and usually have a couple of projects on needles at all times, again I find it therapeutic. Reading is another one of my hobbies and I especially love historical fiction.

I live in the West Midlands in the UK and have started scrapping 10 years ago after picking up a craft catalogue. I made my first layout the next day and I was immediately hooked – I could be creative even though I can’t draw! Over the past 10 years I’ve been fortunate enough to meet many lovely people whom are now firm friends.

I have been on design teams both here in the UK and abroad. I think my greatest scrapping contribution came in the form of Scrap365 Magazine. Being on the original design team I later join the editorial team where I could talk and write about layouts all day! It was an incredible year where work was also my passion!

Sketches are a brilliant way to jump start a layout. I love the Stuck?! Sketches as they are so versatile.

Hi everyone, I'm Natsuko from Japan. I've been scrapping for more than 7 years now, and I'm still deeply in love :) Scrapbooking not only makes me happy but it's also a stress reliever. My daughter is the model in most of my layouts, and I want to keep the moments (special or not!) so she can remember them after she grows up. I love looking at other people's layouts too, imagining what kind of story is hidden there. Colorful is my style, but I also like shabby chic. I don't want to limit myself so I'm not hesitant to try new techniques and I'm always looking for new inspiration. I love travelling, taking pictures and meeting new people from all over the world (especially scrappers!!) It's such an honour to be a member of this team and I'm so excited!! Thank you xxx

Hello! :) I am so excited to be on the Stuck?! team! I am Raechelle (pronounced Rachel) and I live in Conroe, TX along with my husband and youngest daughter. We have a blended family of six children, five girls and one boy. Our other five children are grown and live all over the US, with the exception of our second youngest daughter who is currently stationed in Romania. We are a proud military family! Two of our daughters are active duty Navy, our son is an Army Veteran, and our oldest daughter is a Navy Veteran. We have three sweet granddaughters, although we have only been able to meet one of them. I am a stay-at-home mom for our youngest daughter who has Crohn's disease as well as other medical conditions. Thankfully she is in remission at the time and is able to live a somewhat normal teenage life.

I have been scrapping for about 15 years now and enjoy pushing myself to expand my creativity. I still marvel at how we can all take a sketch, some photos, paper, and embellishments and end up with unique expressions of ourselves. You can see more of my work by visiting my blog:

When I am not scrapping I generally have a book in my nose or am dabbling with my sewing machine.

I look forward to sharing my work as well as being inspired by yours!

I have been scrapbooking now for about 11 years, with a style that has been evolving over that time. I am not sure how to define my style, but am often using a mixture of mixed media and traditional scrapping. I think really I am fairly eclectic. My favourite products include stencils, texture paste, glitter paste and find myself often heading down the track of a mixed media. I also love handmade embellishments.
I really enjoy working with sketches. I find they are great to recharge the scrapping mojo when it goes missing, and are a great starting point, if you find yourself stuck for ideas for a layout. I have been married to my husband for nearly 28 years, I have 2 adult children and one fur baby. I work as a Child Health Nurse, which is a rewarding job.  Visit Sandra's blog here

We also have a few DT members that are staying on, and I am excited to welcome back the following scrapbookers! If you have been following us for a little while you are likely very familiar with their work.
