Its Time to Say Goodbye to some of Our Design Team AND HELLO to some New Friends

Hello STB Fans,

This is a sad post because it is where we say good bye to some of our Design Team. These girls have not only inspired you for the last 6 months and been a wonderful support to me. I am sad not to be able to have them with me for this next leg of our STB journey. I hope you take the opportunity to follow there links as they move down their individual creative paths.

We Say Goodbye to -
This lady is the kindest, sweetest hearted lady you are to ever meet. An amazing talent and always there to make you feel special whenever you are low.

This woman is cut from the same cloth as me. (hope she finds that a good thing) And besides her AWESOME talent. She is the most giving and selfless woman that I have ever met. Its nothing but big belly laughs. This woman makes my soul smile.

This girl is the personification of cool! From the pink tips of her hair to the colours of her layouts. I was lucky enough to meet her in person at the Brisbane Expo to be pleasantly surprised that she speaks my lingo. She is the so generous and hardworking I don't know how she does it all. Some people you just click with and Krisy is one of those girls.

So we say Good BYE for now and who knows they may be back in the future.
I would like to now introduce you to the additions to our STB team

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....

Amanda Hartmann
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! 

Tarrah Mclean

Hi there, my name is Tarrah McLean, I live on the NSW Central Coast in Australia with my wonderful hubby Simon and our 2 adorable sons Luke and Oliver. I have been scrapbooking for 9 years, my blog was created to share my scrapbooking and to inspire fellow crafters. Apart from scrapbooking, I also love to spend time with my family and I am very rarely without a camera in my hand!

Zoe Pearn

Hi there! My name is Zoe Pearn – I’ve designed scrapbooking products and fabric lines for different companies for many years.  I love it.  I love my job. I love to make pretty things…

Cocoa Vanilla Studio is my dream.  For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved paper and pattern.  To have had my designs used by scrapbookers and artists to preserve their stories over the years has been an honour.  To be able to start my own little company is the dream that has been what has kept me going.
I am a wife.  I am a mother of two.  My house is chaotic.  I hate vacuuming.  I love scrapbooking.  I wish I could sew better than I can.  I love taking photos. My kids don’t love it when I take photos. I love colour. I love to laugh.


Hi there I am Bernadette , Bernii for short and I am a passionate memory keeper and crafter from Toowoomba, Queensland Australia. I am a mother to two beautiful children, whom you will see feature in most of my scrapbooking and Project Life layouts. I hope you enjoy my crafting ramblings.
Now you know who is joining us. I cant wait for our next challenge and show you what these fabulous girls create.
Stay Scrappy

June challenge with Rachel Dutko

Hello Scrap The Boys fans, Rachel D here with you today to have closer look at my layout for June.

 "Every Day Is An Adventure"

I started with a full sheet of Crate Paper 'Boys Rule' vellum as a background. I trimmed a 1/4" off each side, then stuck it down to my black cardstock, careful to only apply the adhesive where I knew my other layers would cover.

I used a negative piece of black cardstock that I had left over from die cutting cogs, and placed some triangle patterns underneath to bring in the triangles from the mood board.

For my next layers under my photo I used a mixture of straight-edged pieces and ripped-edge layers. I really love the look of ripped paper, it really gives a grungy, edgy feel.

I had a lot of dark, negative space in my photo, so I stuck my title straight onto the photo. I also used a script stamp for the word' adventure'.

I finished off with embellishments of different textures - vellum, felt, flair, resin, punchinella and ribbon.  

I'd love to see your interpretations for this month's mood board.

Make sure to leave a comment below to be in the running for a great prize.
