New Design Team Member + meet Irma and Rossella


the lovely

Carole Janson of AUSTRALIA is our newest DT member...

WELCOME CAROLE!!!!

Please visit her blog 3 Dimensional Me where  I am CERTAIN you will be inspired to start scrapping this minute. Carole's work is magical...detailed,  and you will be staring at it for a while, trying to take in all the little bits and pieces on her work!



So how would you like to know a little more about our Designers?

INTRODUCING....

Irma Peredne


Here is what she says about herself...
  • I emigrated to USA from Lithuania when I was 11 years old.
  • I am a curious 21 year old trapped in a 30+ year old body (time passes lightning speed after having kids).
  • My birthday is April 8.
  • My professional career is Occupational Therapy, but currently I'm practicing it 1x/week; My full-time career is that of Domestic Engineer with a specialty in conflict resolution (i.e. temper tantrum management). 
  • My family consists of 2 boys, a spouse and a very aloof cat.
  • I prefer to scrap alone when my family sleeps, so that I may disconnect from everything around me, and enter a state of creative flow.
  • My scrapping style is very eclectic - the only unifying factor is my focus on journaling. There's journaling on 99% of my layouts, and if you don't see it on the face of the page, then it's usually typed up and placed behind the page in the page protector. Writing for me is the easiest step in creating a layout.
  • I strive to scrap "keeping it real". Which means that my aim is to record the stories of our life - the good and the bad - resisting the inclination to 'make pretty' the not so happy aspects of our life experience.
  • Ideally, I would scrap as if no one would see or evaluate it; I always struggle with how much of myself should I share with the world in my scrap-art. I feel I'm holding back...
  • Two of my biggest influences have been Ali Edwards, and recently Sabrina Ward Harrison. I would like my style to evolve to some middle ground between Ali's sense of minimalist, graphic, clean design and Sabrina's messy, artsy, raw, soul-bearing honesty and candor.
  • This is my 1st sketch DT position! (thanks to Nadia for believing in me ;) I am a scrapbooking  Hall of Fame winner 2008; I've been published in Creating Keepsakes, Scrapbook Trends magazines, and lately asked to work with Kuretake.
  • I feel that this blog is a new path to some, unforeseen form of greatness: Whether that will be in new friendships forged, or existing ones strengthened ;) Perhaps it will lead me to improve and develop my own inner artist.





INTRODUCING.....
{Rossella}


This is what Rossella says about her self...


My name is Rossella, I'm Italian and I have been scrapping for about 2 years.
I love to create LO, cards, mini album, using many embellishments, ribbons, buttons, scraps of paper! I love stamps of all kinds but in short, I love to scrap!
In my spare time I like to get together with my girlfriends and go shopping and have a good chat!!! Who doesn't like that hey?
I really enjoy photography and I am always thinking about how to achieve a good page to keep my memories! My favorite color is purple. For scrapbooking I prefer to work with the whole range of cool colors. What more can I say? I do not have a defined style, I like to look at the material and decide how to combine it together!
My rule is relaxing and fun!

In the "no-scrap" life, I love my boyfriend but I'm not  married at this time. We are in love about 13 years! :) I'm an optical and I work in a shop of optical articles!
