New DT Members Introduction


Hi there!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that took the time apply to our DT Call, I continue to be humbled by the amount you share and participate with us here at Stuck?!, We had so many entries for our call that it was overwhelming, in a good way for sure, and oh so hard to narrow it down.  We ended up adding four new team members, and have invited a few scrappers to guest for us.  More guesting spots will be made available in the future, too!

Now, let me introduce our newest DT members to you, these talented scrappers will be joining our existing team for our next challenge.  I hope you will take a few minutes to pop on over to their blogs - they each have their own individual style and you are sure to be inspired! 

So without further ado, please meet......


Hello! My name is Carmen, I was born in Brazil. I live in Panama with my husband Alfredo, we have a son David who lives in Massachusetts with his wife Cynthia. I have been scrapbooking for about 9 years, and I'm completely addicted 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'm Mandy and I live on the Central Coast of New South Wales in Australia. I am married to Andrew who is the most amazing husband and graciously supports my scrapbooking obsession! I am blessed with three gorgeous children, Abigail (10), Isaac (7), and Eleanor (4 months) who fill each day with love and laughter. I am the finance manager at at a small Christian primary school where my older two children also go to school, however I am currently on maternity leave and I'm really enjoying being a stay-at-home-mum at the moment! I have been scrapbooking for 10 years since my oldest was a baby and it has become not just my hobby, but my passion! My style has very much evolved over that time, and it continues to evolve as I love to try new products and techniques! I'm not sure that I have a particular style as I like to let the mood of the photos dictate the style of the layout. I am inspired by all the gorgeous patterned papers and embellishments on the market and I love to use lots of colour on my layouts! I enjoy creating both single and double layouts, and most of my layouts will include some journalling as I'm passionate about recording those precious memories. Over the past few years I have had layouts published in Australian scrapbooking magazines Scrapbooking Memories and Scrapbook Creations. I love joining in with online challenges (particularly the ones at Stuck?! Sketches!!) as I think they are great for getting the creative juices flowing! I am so excited to be joining the talented group of ladies at Stuck?! Sketches, and I hope to be able to inspire you with my layouts!

---

Hi there! My name is Nadia and I live in the surroundings of Zurich in beautiful Switzerland. I am a wife to a wonderful husband who always supports me. We love to travel the world together, to hike and to take pictures of our adventures.

I started scrapbooking in 2010 and it has become my passion. There is nothing better than being creative after a busy day in the office. I like to create layouts, (mini) albums, cards and other projects. My scrapbooking style is clean, simple and infused with layers of whimsical fun. I love trying new styles and techniques. Sometimes you have to step outside your comfort zone.

I am very happy to share my projects as a member of the Stuck?! Sketches Design Team!

---

My name is Vasso Sofou and I live in Athens, Greece with my husband and my two adorable daughters! I work as an accountant and in my free time I enjoy playing with my kinds, go to the theatre, and spent time with my friends!

I've been scrapbookiing for the last two years! I love scrapbooking for the freedom it gives you to use all kind of materials. I love visiting  blogs from all over the world and read about their stories in their pages! I don't have a certain style, I like to try different things and styles although I prefer balance in a page. I am so happy to be a member of this team!!!

---

I know I am looking forward to the first reveal with our new team members, how about you?

Thank you for visiting today!
