February Team Reveal and Welcome to New CT Members!

Hello everyone!

Here is our first of the Month Design Team reveal, our challenge for February and our new Team Members!

Introducing Helene!

I live in southern Sweden with my Husband and our six year old Daughter.
I have always playing with colours in different ways, which has resulted in hobbies like interior design, designing and sewing clothing and garden design.  When I found out about Scrapbooking, I quickly became addicted!  I love the combination of creative work and a way to save our family's memories.  I love to create layouts about those small memories that would otherwise be forgotten.  At the same time I am able to spend time with a hobby that helps me relax after work.  Perfect!  I love colours - bright and pastels.  I also love to create messy layouts using lots of water colours, acrylic paints and stamps.  At the moment I am part of three Creative Teams : Scrap the Girls, ARTastic and Allt Om Scrap (a Swedish challenge site).  I also run Allt Om Scrap.

Introducing Christine!

My name is Christine Santos (a Scrapaholic) & I live in Auckland, New Zealand.   I'm blessed to have 2 bubbly and gorgeous little girls, & they're my major subject & inspiration when I create.  Creating beautiful memories is a big part of my life.  I casually started scrapbooking in 2010 since my first daughter was born.  It all started when my mom bought me a baby themed paperstack & some stickers.  I told myself...what am I going to do with all this stuff? Then I got introduced to the world of papercrafting, thanks to my sister in law.  By late 2013 I was completely hooked, & often find myself creating most nights. My style is colorful, playful & fun.  I constantly find myself learning & experimenting with my craft, & I always keep an open mind when I create.  I'm currently designing for Artfull Crafts, Canvas Corp & Let's Capture Our Memories which I all enjoy very much & are proud to be part of, along with Scrap the Girls (of course!).

Introducing Monica!

Hi! My name is Monica and I'm very excited to be joining the Scrap The Girls team for the next 6 months! I live in sunny QLD with my Husband and 4 kids. I have been Scrapbooking for 11 years now. I love the constant ebb and flow of the industry, it keeps the creative juices flowing! I love experimenting with styles, love mixed media and have  a new found love for all things Graphic Design inspired.
I enjoy making cards and tags and dabble in the odd Beyond The Page item.
Scrap The Girls was the very first challenge blog I participated in, back in the day when it first went live! This is a really exciting opportunity and I hope I can share ideas and inspiration with you all!

Introducing Heike

My name is Heike,
I am married to the love of my life. He helps and supports me in everything I do, including 
my scrapbooking. I am a fulltime mom of four fantastic, beautiful, lovely kids.
I live in The Netherlands. 
I love the moments in my little studio.
Art work is my soul and my conversation over my life. I try to transfer that in my own piece of art work. 
I like to mixture different styles. I improvise and put several types of expressions in my projects.
I am thrilled and honored to be a part of Scrap The Girls design team and to work with such AMAZING ladies. 

Introducing Nancy

I’m Nancy Gauthier from Quebec (I’m French Canadian)  I have a 5 years old daughter and a 2 years old little boy.
I’ve been scrapbooking for 12 years.  I do some Mixed Media layout and some Clean and Simple.  I hope you’re going to like my style.
Here’s my website: www.carterieartisanale.com

Introducing Rebecca(Bec) Genet

I have been scrapbooking since my daughter was born in 2006 but I was doing it privately up until this August when I thought it was time to start up a blog so I could start to enter some monthly scrapbooking challenges.
I  would say my scrapbooking  style in general is quite feminine, I use a lot of flowers, pearls, sparkle - I think only having a daughter to scrap tends to sway my style in that direction. I also love the mixed media style of scrapbook using lots of texture pastes, stencils, mediums, paints, sprays, etc.
Here is the link to my blog  (http://becgenet.blogspot.com.au/ ) I have also set up a gallery on Scrapbook.com (http://www.scrapbook.com/galleries/929449.html ), a community Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Bec-Genet-My-Scrappin-Spot/281502112043139 ) and a Pinterest account ( http://www.pinterest.com/becgenet/ ). The Facebook page is still a work in progress. 

Hi!! I’m Karyn and I live in the Adelaide Hills in South Australia. I'm a mum to 2 gorgeous girls (7 and 13) and have an amazing husband who patiently supports my crafting obsession.

I love scrapbooking, Project Life, SMASH*ing, and card-making. Being creative lets me escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life. I love to capture precious family memories on my papercraft pages and I love watching my family look through the albums and seeing their photos and reading the journaling.

I like to try new things on my projects and love to be challenged. My style is constantly evolving and at the moment I love to use paints, mists, stencils and stamps on my backgrounds. Many of my projects include paper doilies and wood veneer and I’m often happy to create using NO patterned paper! 

I live on a farm and love horses, reading, shopping, yoga, my garden, chocolate and coffee!

In the Mid Month reveal here at STG you will see Monica's and  Nancy's samples along with our other DT samples.  I hope you will play along with us using this amazing Moodboard designed by Rikki.

Until mid month, happy creating.

Marelle and the STG Amazing Team!
