July ~ December 2017 Design Team


 


"Hello my crafty friends!
My name is Tricia and I am from Sunny Southern California, mother of one beautiful daughter Breanna Nichole (6) and a brand new fury friend, Brownie. I have been creating for about 17 years and have enjoyed every moment of it. I began scrapbooking right when there weren’t too many “safe” products out there to use. Since my attendance to a Scrapbook Expo it went all down hill from there! I usually reference that as my “coming out party!” Most of my projects and layouts you will see will be of my daughter as she IS the subject and focus of my life! I have met so many cool people through the world of crafting in which I am so lucky to have many of them as my friends!

I’m usually kept busy doing layouts, canvas pieces, Project Life, Art Journaling and my favorite…. Mini Books! Whatever it is I am creating I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE using embelIies! You will almost always find some BLING, Washi Tape, Paint, and most likely some doodling. =) I

Besides crafting, I love spending time with my family, friends, traveling, reading, dancing and working out. I am usually never still and always involved in something.

I am super excited to be a part of such an awesome design team here for Scrap Our Stash! 
All the designers are extremely talented and I am sure you will find inspiration every time you visit! 
I am totally looking forward to another term and I hope you are too! 
Stay tuned to see some cool stuff!
See you around!"

"My name is Sherri Caramico, I live in Northern New Jersey. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 32 years, and am the mother of 2 adult sons, and 2 young Portuguese Water Dogs. All of them are my favorite subjects! We love to travel and Disney Cruising and Disney Parks are our favorite way to vacation. I love meeting people, and enjoy photographing our journeys. I started scrapping late in my children's lives, ( about 10 years ago,) and I know I will never get "caught up." I'm okay with that, as I like to scrap what I "feel like" scrapping, and love lots of layers, textures and "stuff" on my pages.

I work full time in the corporate world and Scrapbooking helps me to relax from a busy day, and get creative. It has helped me to meet so many people that I now call my true friends. I teach classes at my Local Scrapbook Store and I enjoy inspiring others to think outside the box and encourage them just try a new technique or product. I believe there is no right or wrong, no good or bad - everyone has their own personal "art" inside them."

SPECIAL MENTION: Selected for a Heart Healthy Video for Cheerios.com about my “Passion for Scrapbooking” you can view it on You Tube “Precious Memories – Sherri” and see some of my work. (If you click on CHEERIOS tag on my blog, you can find out how this came about) It was filmed at Scrap-a-Doodle Doo too! 
Here is the link to the video from 2010."



Blog: Natsuko's Little Craft Room

"Hi everyone, I'm Natsuko from Japan. I've been scrapping for 7 years now, and I'm still deeply in love:) Most of my layouts include my loved ones especially my daughter who is now in 5th grade. Scrapbooking not only makes me happy but it's also very therapeutic.That's why I join workshops and events especially for moms. I love looking at other people's layouts too, by reading their blog or imagining what kind of story is hidden there. I love both colorful and shabby chic style. I don't want to limit myself so I'm not hesitant to try new techniques or style. 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"




"Hi there. My name is Rachelle.I am a mother to 2 grown sons and grandmother to 2 beautiful grandchildren.

I was a 6th grade teacher for 7 years. As a result of failing health I am wheelchair bound and keeping busy is still my goal. Scrapbook is the best and rewarding therapy.

I started scrapbooking in 2008 when I viewed a friends work. My passion quickly turned into addiction for this type of artistry and I never looked back. I am very passionate about this interest. It's not just about creating albums but it is a work of art. I truly love the art of design in all aspects of life, Thus, here I am today enjoying my passion as therapy and inspiration for others. Each day is filled with being inspired, creating, providing inspiration through my work and treasuring the memories. I define my style using one word it would be Shabby Chic." I love beautifully embellished projects with lots and lots of detail. My love of flowers is reflected on most of my projects. I always have the urge to add a flower here or there. 

Although this is my true style, I easily adapt my style depending on the type of project. 

I love using a variety of techniques, elegant and fun elements. My style has been described as detailed, beautiful, and multifaceted. My greatest strength is attention to detail. I like to take the viewer on a visual journey of my inspirational designs.



"My name is Åsa Johansson and I´m from Sweden. I´m 39 years old or I rather say young. I live here with my hubby and our three kids (one boy and twin girls) and a dog. I work as a teacher since 16 years. 
My big hobby, or maybe I may say addiction, is scrapbooking and cardmaking. I started out in 2007 when I was pregnant with our twin girls. But I see 2012 as my real beginning. That is when I started my blog and had a little more time to scrap because the life with twins was crazy in the first years... 
I like to join different challenges and I´m a team member in some Design Teams. I think I developed by that. 
I don´t know if I can describe my style. In cardmaking it is CAS for sure but my layouts varies. But I often use white cs as a background, many layers and bright colors. I got a Silhouette Cameo some months ago and I love to cut out things to add to my layouts. 
I´m so proud to be a part of the design team here at Scrap Our Stash. I hope I can give you some inspiration during the months.

Blog: Scrap Joy

"Hello! My name is Carmen, I was born in Brazil and live in Panama with my husband Alfredo. We have a married son who lives in Massachusetts with his wife and a newborn baby Elliot, our first grandchild. I have been scrapbooking for about 9 years, and I'm completely addict to it. About my style I can say that it's mostly clean, graphic and bright but I also love to try new techniques, love challenges and sketches! I also love to knit, cook and bake, crosshatching and appliqué. I find Pinterest an endless inspirations source!"



Blog:  ArtScrapz

"Hi everyone I'm Michelle and I'm from the shaky South Island in New Zealand!

I live in Christchurch (which had a major earthquake in 2011 that we're all still slowly recovering from), with my husband of 31 years, 2 teenage daughters that I love but drive me batty sometimes, and 2 psychotic cats. My poor hubby is outnumbered 5 to 1 as even the cats are girls! 

I've been scrapping for around 15 years although it's just in the last couple of years that I've discovered what a huge online community there is for scrappers. I can spend hours "window" shopping online, checking out techniques on YouTube, finding things I like on Pinterest, reading blogs and updating my own blog. I love competing in online challenges as they always give a "push" to get those photos on to layouts and then into albums.
I'm also on the design team for my local scrapbook store The Paper Teapot.

I am super pumped to be on the Scrap Our Stash design team and I hope that I can inspire you to create, create, create!"



 Blog:  Super Stick Chick

"Hi there! My name is June, and I am thrilled to be part of the SOS design team! Being an avid scrapbooker and cardmaker, I create something new almost every day. I enjoy making cards, but scrapbooking is my true passion. I started my first scrapbook as a teenager in the 1970s and I’ve created dozens of albums since. My style varies, as I love trying new techniques and crossing over ideas from cardmaking into scrapbooking. Mostly I just like to have fun, be creative, and add a little humor or something clever. I love to push my creativity, and as a former teacher I also like to encourage others to do the same. I started my blog, Super Stick Chick, just last year. I also have a strong following on Flickr as snazzyjj.

I am a stay-at-home mom who lives in Minnesota and is married to her sweetheart, Jeff. We have two wonderful sons (ages 16 and 28) and two playful cats. I love to do all sorts of papercrafting, gardening and Jazzercise."


 Blog:  ​ Kada's Scrapbooking

"My name is Karin Dahllöf, aka Kada, and I live at the island
​ of​ Orust in Bohuslän, Sweden with my husband and our cat. Scrapbooking is a lifestyle to me, a part of my daily life, my nerv of life. To create is to be free, to have fun och be personal. Nothing is right or wrong, it's fantastic! 

I began to scrapbook in 2004, just after our marriage. But I have made birthday cards ever since I was a child. I love to create with paper
​ and try different techniques, tools, etc. 

To be a member of this design team means a lot to me
​ and I am so looking forward to this term​. I really hope I can give you inspiration to feel the fun in this hobby. 

​You are welcome to visit my blog!"



"Hey everyone. My name is Michelle Mattie and I live on our family farm in a small community on the east coast of Canada. I work full time as a veterinary technician and have a daughter, who is the focus of most of my layouts. I started scrapbooking in 2003 after being invited to a home party and haven’t looked back!! I love challenges and use sketches on pretty much all my pages. Some signatures are machine stitching, handmade flowers and inks, in one form or another. I'm not sure how to describe my style. Sometimes it can be clean and simple, and other times it can get pretty messy . I love texture and dimension on my layouts. When I'm not scrapping, I love to putter outside, play volleyball, read or work on wool applique. I am super excited to be on the Scrap Our Stash team, and can’t wait to share my first reveal with you!!"



Hi! I'm Angela, I go by Ange (Anj) around the web. I'm super excited to be designing with Scrap Our Stash for the upcoming term! I've always loved their challenges and can't wait to share my creations with all of you.
I live in Southern Idaho and have been scrapping for..... ever. lol I have 4 totally awesome kiddos; 2 girls and 2 boys ranging in ages from college all the way down to 2nd grade. So I have all kinds of different photos to scrap and share. Besides scrapping I love to play softball and volleyball. I also love hiking (nothing serious, just fun family hikes), reading and taking photos.
My favorite challenge is one that includes a sketch! So I can't wait to get started.



Blog:  Studio M Rose 

"My name is Maria. I live in the sunny state of Florida. I am a married mom of 2 beautiful little girls. My husband is wonderful and thankfully supports my "little" hobby. When I'm not at the beach, Disney or homeschooling my kids, I'm creating scrapbook pages of our many adventures. I have been scrapbooking for about 13 years and have no end in sight! I don't label my "style". I try not to have one. I like to be dabbling in anything and everything. From simple and clean to mixed media messy. I'm a mess of everything and I like it that way. I don't want to do anything to stunt my creativity. I'm so excited to be a part of the Scrap Our Stash team and look forward to the next 6 months! See you around!"



Blog:  Dear Zae

"Hi there! I’m Carrie, wife to my high-school sweetheart, and proud (understatement!) mama to a toddler named Isaiah Mathias, who we call Zae. We live among the hills along the Mississippi River in Minnesota. I inherited my dad’s love of photography, so scrapbooking goes hand in hand with that love. I’ve dabbled in all kinds of art forms, but it wasn’t until I found scrapbooking in 2011 that I found my true passion. After Zae was born, my hobby became more of an addiction. I want to capture all these precious moments as they fly past at warp speed! I love all kinds of styles and especially love incorporating mixed media elements. Outside of scrapbooking, I love horses, reading, writing, and playing in puddles"



"Hi my name is Alicia Redshaw and I live in Gladstone, Queensland, Australia. I am married to the most amazing man, and later this year we will celebrate 25 years of love, happiness and super human teamwork. We share four beautiful and creative children aged 19, 16, 10 and 2 - who are our reason for living the life we live. I have been creating almost all of my life – whether it was sewing, painting, making cards, scrapbooking or anything else I could get my hands on. I have been Scrapbooking seriously for around 16 years, and teaching Scrapbooking and Cardmaking for over 14 years. We own Scrapbook Fantasies and love that my life is full of creativity and I get the opportunity to meet new people every day. I am a great believer that every product should have more than one purpose, leading me to experiment with products continuously finding new uses, mixes and creative opportunities. I create anywhere from shabby chic to clean and simple to artsy and everything in between. I love creating with layers and my favourite tools are cutting dies, mists and a good pair of scissors. Essentially, I will give anything creative a go!"
