Hi everyone!!

This is the last of our Design Team member introductions before we announce the winner of the **GIVEAWAY** tomorrow and officially start our challenges on April 1st!!


Heather Jacob - Australia

This is what Heather says about her self...

Hi there my name is Heather Jacob, I am married to Baden my soul mate ..and our treasured family are all featured in my work...there is nothing more important to me than my family..
I discovered scrapbooking in 2003 and to me this craft is the perfect combination of art, photography, beautiful paper and glorious words .. I love that I can incorporate all the arts and crafts into one amazing hobby...Creating art is a deep passion of mine..I especially love that there are no rules !!! My books are a reflection of my history, my family and friends... also who I was yesterday and who I am today. I love using chipboard, stitching, beautiful colours and meaningful journaling ... I also adore getting messy with paint, " must be the kid in me" LOL...Off the page projects are a fave of mine .. tags, cards and mini books . My style is classic with attention to detail. I teach at "Seriously Scrapbooking" in Adelaide and I encourage people to scrap ALL parts of their life, even the "TOUGH" times..I also design for Imaginarium designs.. yummy chippies !!
I am sooooo excited to be part of this amazing team .. big hugz x 


Bente Fagerberg - Sweden

Hi I am Bente. I am thrilled to bits to be part of such  a talented bunch. Thank you so much for inviting me!
I am a Norwegian lady living with my Swedish husband of 26 years. We live in a village in the countryside outside of Swedens third city. I  like to live near a bigger city because I can go see a show , or an opera which I love.We have three beautiful girls aged 19, 16, and 10,- and since November a kitten.
I discovered scrapbooking maybe five years ago , but did not scrap as consistently as now. It has become a 'need' to play with paper every day. Playing on challenge sites has really helped develop my style. Through studying (and maybe even copying...schhhh...don't tell! ) I have learnt so much. That is the beauty of thesesites! Hopefully I can inspire a few as I have been inspired.When I am not scrapbooking or spending time with my family I co-own a small business with a friend. We sell fashion jewellery and scarves as wholesalers. It givesme a lot of freedom which I love.I was a SAHM for the best part of my life, but now the girls are older they don't need me to be there all the time.Originally I spent years at university studying the field of economy and several other subjects. During my first couple of years at work I kept on doing courses a.o. in art history.
Design teams I am on: Apart from being on the DT for Once Upon A Sketch , I am a DT member at a French manufacturer Les Papiers de Pandore (owned by Julie Blanc). I also design for Your Scrapbook Stash, a US online store  and I am a Colour Master at Color Combos Galore, a US colour challenge site.
Scrapping style would probably be defined as Shabby chic. I use a lot of distressing on my pages and even paint. I often wrinkle and tear my paper to give it a worn look. I love to use lace and twine , and of course lots of buttons. I love texture and layers and you will often find a lot of colour on my pages!
Favourite colour would probably be pink, followed by yellow and lime, and turquoise, and...... Purple is great for scrapbooking while orange causes me grief!! Lately I enjoy combinations of monochrome with white.Stepping out of the box for me would probably mean scrapping in the simple style.I love to look at white space on other peoples work though! I scrap while I am standing up at my desk.I am in the family room making a mess with all my stuff. The family is nearby and the TV is on in the background.When I'm not scrapping I am probably driving one of the children to an activity or a friends house.
-Or maybe watching sports on the TV!here is really not enough hours in the day!
 I would love to see you over at  my blog

and finally introducing!

Nadia Cannizzo - Australia

Hi!I am Nadia and in March of 2011 I decided to do something I have always wanted to do...start this challenge blog.  I am 32 years old and I live in Sydney Australia. Although my name doesn't suggest it, I was born and raised in Greece, and moved to Australia when I was 11. I am a mummy to two, much loved and much wanted little girls and I have been married to my husband for the last 12 years. I am a Primary School teacher and have been teaching for about 11 years. I have been scrapping/papercrafting officially for just under 2 years now and I have to say I am beyond addicted, and not a day goes past that I don't do something crafty! I mostly create layouts but just recently I have started making cards again and am enjoying the fact they are quicker and easier to make, yet I still feel I have satisfied my creative urge. 2011 is going to be a busy year for me as I will be on the Design Team for Color Combos GaloreMy Scrapbook Nook, Kraft It Up Bird Is the WordPretty Paper Petals The Studio Challenges Show Us Your Stuff, Lets Capture These Sketches and of course design for and run this blog. I'm glad you stopped by!
Here is my personal blog 

Now that's everyone introduced!! Phewww...:o) Make sure too check back tomorrow at some point to see if you are the winner of the giveaway! There is still time to here for the details 
Bye for now!
