Announcing our Guest Designers for 2013

We are switching things up a bit at Sketch N Scrap for the coming new year and have chosen three new Guest Designers to serve from January until June 2013.  We are excited that these talented ladies will be joining us to play along with our sketches and offer some added inspiration alongside our regular DT members.  Please join me in welcoming:

 My name is Barbara, and I live in Pittsburgh, PA with my husband of 21 years and two sons, 16 and 13. Currently, I am a Marketing Representative for a financial advisor. I was first introduced to scrapbooking at a Creative Memories party when my oldest son was 1. I've never looked back since that point! I love creating scrapbooks documenting my sons' lives. Having an outlet to stimulate my imagination helps keep me sane! Sketches, challenges, and learning new techniques continue to inspire me. There is so much out there in scrapland that I want to experience. I also enjoy making cards and other paper crafting projects.  And, in my spare time, I enjoy reading, skiing, cooking, and exercising, not necessarily in that order.  To see more of Barabar's wonderful work please visit her blog: Luvy's World

My name is Roulien Stahnke and I started scrapping after we relocated to Saudi Arabia in 2008.  I mainly scrap layouts but I also love creating home decor and altered projects.  The main focus of my scrapbooking is my wonderful  family!   Techniques I love to use are distressing and clustering!  I am thrilled to be a Guest Designer for Sketch 'n Scrap . . . thanks so much for having me!!  To see more of Roulien's beautiful work please visit her blog: My Scrappy Story

My name is Surama and I live in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, with my mum, my sister and two cats. 
I'm single, no children.  I work in publicity at my own company: an agency of events and promotional marketing. 
I've been scrapping since 2006 and never stopped. In the little spare time I have, I'm with my papers, scissors and glue. For me, scrapbooking is fun, it is my pleasure and my joy.  Good memories and special moments of my life with my family and friends are the theme of my layouts.  In addition to scrapbooking, I love listening to music, watching movies and going out with friends.  To see more of Surama's lovely work you can visit her blog:
Um Blog De Scrapbook.
