GUEST DESIGNERS 2022

SEPTEMBER

 Natalie Donoghue (Australia)


Inspired by the books , dragonflies and gems.

Hi I’m Natalie or Nat to my friends. 

I was double excited to be asked to be this months guest designer for two reasons - 1)  just being asked and 2) finding out the colour is purple (my second favourite colour).

I have been scrapbooking and card making for a number of years now and find it a rewarding and relaxing hobby!

Most recently I have really been exploring art journaling and using a lot of multi media on my pages. I really enjoy repurposing items to use such as dress labels, tags, tissue paper and gift wrap. I don’t have favourite suppliers or items, that changes depending on the day!

AUGUST

  Lisa Kynaston (Australia)

I have taken inspiration from the flowers, the Vintage print pages and aged paint. I have created a vintage style layout and aged and distressed the paper with a mustard & vintage ink pad.

Hi, My name is Lisa Kynaston, I have been scrapbooking for at least 20 years. I live in Hervey Bay, QLD, Australia. I mainly use pre-digital photos from the 90's but I have been doing more recently with printed digital photos of my grandchildren and also some older vintage photos. My style is evolving and changing all the time and I love to give anything a go and love using my stash and scraps. 

I have a page on Facebook "Scrapbook Layouts by Lisa" and a lot of my older designs are on Pinterest.

JUNE

Jessica Fischer (USA)








I live in Denver, NC but was raised near Pittsburgh, PA. I picked up scrapbooking as a hobby in 2014. Then, in 2015, I decided to try mixed media and loved it! I was part of the Scraps of Darkness DT and the Blue Fern Studios DT. At the beginning of 2019 I needed to take a break from my artwork, but I recently started again after relocating my art studio. It’s good to be back!

SHARON BISHOP


Inspired by the blue hair!


Hi!  My name is Shazza.  I live in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia!  I have three older children and one Granddaughter "Skyla" who is the subject of a lot of my scrap pages.  I have been scrapping for about fifteen years and love challenges!  My own style has developed over time as I love adding stitching, paper piercing or stitched fabric items to my pages.  I am grateful to have the opportunity to guest design this month.

 I have taken my inspiration from the sequins on the dress and the lace on the dress. The squares on the telephone box and the lamp post, add some stencil work for the grid lines.

Mixed media is one of my favourite things. Lots of colour and texture make me happy.

FEBRUARY

JULENE MATTHEWS


I incorporated hearts, Eiffel tower stamps, and a vintage lace which I inked with Versa “opera pink”. These flowers were just the correct colour for the challenge.
