Design Team Announcement

Firstly let me say that the applications I recieved were absolutely amazing and I would encourage all that applied and didn't make the team this time to keep trying and definately enter each month as your work is amazing...

Without further delay I would like to welcome to the team for the next 6 months:

Sarah Ward
My name is Sarah Ward, or Sar W as I'm known in the 'scrap world'! I am a 28yo SAHM of three beautiful babies, Cooper 4, Georgia 2 and Bronte 9mths. I have been married to my best friend Daniel for nearly six years. I have been a scrapbooker for around five years, but have only been really serious about it for the last 12 months or so. I feel I have grown as a scrapbooker so much in this time, spending every opportunity I have participating in forums, cybercrops, challenges. Just being involved in the online community gives me so much joy and I have met so many wonderful people, online and in real life. Scrapbooking is my escape, and I don't know where I'd be without it at the end of each day!

Tammy Leaver
Right now I live in lovely Wagga Wagga in NSW where my husband is currently training with the Navy. I am a SAHM to 4 gorgeous children who are the main subjects of my scrapbooking pages. I stumbled upon scrapbooking about 2 1/2 years ago as I walked through a local department store. I have been slightly obsessed ever since, I love everything about it (except the mess I make). I love mixing patterned papers. Bright colours are an essential, white cardstock and black ink are never far away. I enjoy experimenting with new techniques and playing with new products. I am so very excited to be apart of the white with 1 challenge blog. I have enjoyed playing along with the challenges in the past and can't wait to get in and get started.

Lisa Balm
I am married with 3 sons, and live in Brisbane. We have lived here almost 9 years, after moving from Tasmania in 2000.I love to play netball and have played soccer and futsal, and for the last 3 years have helped out at the local AFL club where the boys play.I got into scrapping about 6 years ago when a friend took me to a CM party, it wasnt long before I found a whole other world and the addiction started. I have a freestyle arty style, love to play with paints and inks and other mediums.

My Name is Nicole Greguric (also known as NicsNook), from Sydney Australia .I have now been Scrapping for the last three years and it has taken my Creativity to places I never thought possible...Is it an addiction?...No just an amazing way to Create, Document and Reflect. I work in the Social Welfare Industry and in my Spare time I Teach/Design at Scraploot and I am currently on the design team for Creative Scrappers. I am an Aunt to two delightful Little Munchkins that I absolutely Adore and Love spending time with. They are the Source of My Inspiration, Joy and Unconditional Love. I love Vintage, Shabby–Chic, Textured and Detailed layouts with lots of depth and embellishments. I like to treat each layout that I do as a piece of art where my love of this amazing craft hopefully shows through...

Toni M
I am a single mum to my one gorgeous 6 year old boy. I have been scrapping for just over 6 years and I love it. I love challenges and being made to think outside the box. I think some of my best work has come from being made to push myself and to think of things in a new light. I had struggled a bit with my scrapping at times and was introduced to 8.5x11 about a year ago and have never looked back, it helped me find my feet and sent me in a totally different direction. I love clean simple pages but also given the opportunity I love to layer and just keep adding to a LO. I normally scrap mainly boy pages, but have recently been blessed with the arrival of beautiful non-identical twin nieces, so I am looking forward to joining the world of girl scrappers. I am currently on the DT at Scrapbook'n'Bits and wouldnt trade that job for the world, I love it!!

My name is Sharon Suchoronczak and I live in Murgon, about 3 hrs NW of Brisbane, Queensland. I am married and have a daughter and 3 sons, and now two grandchildren.
I have been scrapping for 6 years and I am extremely excited about being on the CT for Scrap the Boys. Having 3 grown up boys and a grandson will give me lots of inspiration to share with you over the next few months.
My name is Tracey Campbell and I am a mother to one, a darling handful of a daughter Bronte and a wife to a fantastic supportive husband. I work full time in the Navy, have a house full of animals and still find time to scrap. Which I need to do as it is my sanity, my creative outlet. I have been scrapping for about five or so years now. Before scrapping I had always jumped from one hoppy to the next, then I was introduced to Scrapping and have been obsessed ever since. Which is lucky for my daughter as when she is grown I hope she will appreciate being the subject of most of my creations…..although I am sure she will get sick of being in front of my camera!!!

I am Sandie and I am 34. I live in Singleton, Western Australia with my DH Gary and our 5 children. I am a Medical Receptionist working in the radiology field. I enjoy my job which is 1 day a fortnight it keeps me balanced with having all the children. With 5 children our life pretty much revolves around them. I started scrapping nearly 3 years ago my girlfriend who is a card maker introduced me to my first scrap shop it was then my passion started and later became my obsession. I’m a happy and bright bubbly person and I enjoy sharing my work with others and hope to inspire them along the way. My style is defined with distressing and layering and a bit of glitz along the way. I love staying up to date with current techniques and implementing them on my page as I go.

Liz Hicks
Hi, my name is Liz Hicks and I am 34 years old. I moved to New Zealand from England with my husband 8 years ago. We have 2 beautiful boys Oliver (4) and Keiran (1). I love being creative and I have always loved taking photos; so scrapbooking is the perfect hobby for me. I first started scrapping the year Oli was born but 4 years on I feel I have found my true style. I don’t believe a page needs to have all the latest and trendiest products. A page is just perfect when it makes you smile and tells the story you want to tell. I love my pages because I know that my boys will remember me; they will remember my handwriting, the colours I love and of course the fun we have together. I am known for putting lots on a page, even when I set out to do a minimal look. I love using layers. You will find, ribbon, brads, ink, stamping, rub ons, doodling and pearls/bling on most of my layouts. I have re-found my eyelet setter and now love using up all those old eyelets. In fact, I seem to use quite a few of my fav techniques all on one L.O.

Hi, my name is Melissa. I am 30 years old, married to Matt for 10 years this year and we have two gorgeous daughters, Chloe and Lily!I have been scrapbooking for 3.5 - 4 years now and love everything about it!I am honored to be a part of the White With 1 Challenge Blog and am looking forward to sharing my creations with you all :-)
