Welcome to our New Design Team

Hello STB fans,


WELCOME TO OUR NEW DESIGN TEAM
Say hello and give a follow to these lovely talented ladies. They will grace us with their generous time and creativity to help inspire you to scrap those men!



Heike
Bio : Once upon a time there was a beautiful and lovely stay at home mum called Heike with four growing up kids, one son in law and three grandkids. She lived with her love of life in the oldest city in The Netherlands. Her great passion for MixedMedia scrapbooking made her known in the world. So it was not surprising that from another country a lovely lady called Amy asked if she would like to be again a part of the design team from STB. Oh what a happiness to act with this amazing talented ladies. She is now already dreaming of layouts which she wants to make. ......They lived long and happily together until january....

Emma
Hi 👋🏻, I'm Emma and i live in the Clare Valley of South Australia with my hubby and 2 amazing boys.
I've been living and breathing Scrapbooking for over 10 years now. 

I love a challenge and don't really feel I have a specific 'style' as I tend to scrap a little how I feel at the time. 
But in saying that I do love playing with embellishments....maybe sometimes a little too much 😝

Farrel
Hi there, my name is Farrel Tailor and I am a mum of 3 beautiful boys - Noah 12yrs, Oliver 3yrs and Charlie 1yr. I have a very loving and understanding husband of almost 9yrs and we live in the beautiful Hunter Valley NSW.
I have been a scrapbooker for about 12yrs and have loved every minute of it. My style is far from being neat as mixed media is what I love to do the most. The messier the better for me lol.

When I'm not teaching classes I love to spend time travelling with my family making new memories.

Fiona
My name is Fiona and I live in Sydney with my 2 children Zane (11) & Lily (9) and our dog Harry. I've been scrapping since just before Zane was born. My day to day style varies; one day clean lines, mixed media the next, but I always love using patterned paper!

Khristina
Hi, I'm Khristina and I live in Arizona with my amazing husband and three adventurous kiddos. I have been scrapbooking since I was a child and love telling our stories in unique ways. My style is very eclectic and I love to combine new and old products from lots of different collections in unique ways. I am so very excited to be here and be able to inspire all of you!

Sue,
Bio - I am a SAHM of 3 (daughter Brielle, 8; and twin sons Hunter & Kaden, 4) and live in the beautiful Glasshouse Mountains in Qld along with my partner of 15 years, Shannon. We have also recently acquired a kitten (Genghis) because I didn't have enough feeding and cleaning up to do already! haha
I have been scrapping for about 8 years, having begun shortly after my daughter was born. I would best describe my scrapping style as versatile - ranging from clean and linear to messy mixed media and many things in between.
Besides, Scrap the Boys I am also currently on the design teams for Australian manufacturers Cocoa Vanilla Studio; Flutterby Designs and Colour Blast and am proud to be able to represent Aussie companies.
I am very excited to be able to continue on with STB in 2017 because I love creating boy layouts and encouraging others to do so too. Thanks for having me back (again) Amy! X




Rachel D
Hi! My name is Rachel Dutko and I live in Adelaide with my husband and our 2 young boys.
I first started scrapbooking about 10 years ago, but after a big break I rediscovered it with a life-changing passion about 3 years ago.
I love the fact that scrapbooking allows me to express my creativity and document my precious memories at the same time.
I'm lucky enough to have had a career in the television industry for the past 16 years, and I am in my craft space most nights for some 'me' time after the daily demands of work and family. I am on the Design Teams for Creative Kit Club and Colour Blast Australia. 
I have been a guest designer at several challenge blogs, and have also been published in Jot Magazine and Scrapbooking Memories (including the cover).
I mostly scrap photos of my boys, and I'm so thrilled to be continuing on the STB team. I really like using mixed media, texture, and learning new techniques. I think my style is fun, bright, and sometimes messy, 'boy' pages.

Rachel L
Hello my name is Rachel Lowe and I am from beautiful Perth, Western Australia.
I am married with four great kids. 
My crafting background is painting and quilting. However once I discovered scrapbooking I was hooked.
I would describe my style as classic/contemporary. I am a lover of clean lines, negative space, embellishment clustering and sewing.
I also love using my Silhouette Cameo and cut files on my layouts.
I am a keen photographer and believe the ‘photo' is everything on a layout.
I am thrilled to be staying on as a part of this very talented DT team.

Amanda H
 I have been scrapbooking for many years, as evidenced by my well-organised large stash and shelves full of albums! My life is always about the balance and juggle – as I divide time between my gorgeous family (husband and 3 girls), my rewarding work (full time as a Speech Pathologist) and my "me" time (Scrapbooking and Jujitsu). I have worked on a variety of Design Teams as well as Teams for challenge blogs over the years and have been published in Scrapbooking Memories. I love to use patterned papers, but also combining mixed media to create interesting backgrounds. Embellishment clusters are part of my signature style!

Melissa
Hi, my name is Melissa Struhs. I am a wife to a Cabinet Maker husband ( and yes, he is extremely patient with my never ending updates to the craft room) and a mum to a teenage son. He is the reason I began scrapbooking over 16 years ago when I was on maternity leave and I never intended for it to become a career change.

I have been teaching in local Gold Coast and Brisbane stores for nearly 15 years now and am currently teaching at Scrapulous. I am also on the Design Teams for the Funky Flairs Studio and Colour Blast.

My scrapbooking style could be best described as traditional, as I still love double layouts and combining gorgeous patterned papers. What I love most is incorporating hand stitching, laser cut chipboard and mixed media techniques to create the textures and layers in a streamlined way.

AJ
Hello everyone! 
My name is Amanda, I'm a mum of 4 - three boys and one girl. Ethan (just about 13), Cody (11), Kira (9) and Kurt (2). Before you ask, yessss, they keep me busy! 
My hubby is the SAHM while work full time, but enjoy coming home and hearing about everyone's day and eventually when all is quiet in the household I like to create. 
I've been scrapbooking since I was pregnant with Ethan and got invited to a Creative Memories party! lol. The penny really dropped that night, but thank goodness it has also evolved! 100 pizza boxes later, I have captured every milestone on camera, but still have quite a way to go to scrap them all.
My style is different from day to day - some days I want to stick to paper and 3D-ing every embellishment on the page, other days I want to get my hands covered in paint and rip out the stencils. I love creating, photography, and capturing moments. We look through our albums quite a lot which makes my heart sing.
