Meet our July - December 2016 DT

Hello everyone!
First of all, THANK YOU  to all of you who sent an application and
showed interest in the SIWAS Design Team.
 I was blown away by all of the talent that was displayed by the applicants ♥
I was so happy that so many were interested.

So, this is the SIWAS Design Team for July - December 2016:



Hello there, my name is Giorgia - a.k.a. Jò in Wonderland - I'm 33 and I'm Italian.
I' m the owner of SIWAS blog.
I scrap from 6 years: I love playing with papers and all those lovely embellishments, colors and preserving memories.
I mostly make layouts, but I love to try cards, mini and off the page projects too.
Scrapbooking is my happy place!
I'm actually on Scrap it With a Song DT, Docrafts DT and CreaFamily DT.


My name is Sharon and I am DT and blog coordinator here in SIWAS.
I have been married for 42 years to the man of my dreams and my best friend.  We have a daughter and a son that are both grown and out on their own. Our daughter has given us two beautiful grandchildren.  A boy age 20 and a girl age 11.  I scrap my family and our travels.  My family loves looking at my scrapbooks. I have been scrapping now for close to 20 years.  I usually scrap clean linear type layouts.  I have been trying to do more layering and using some mixed media products too.  I love music and was very interested in joining the team here at SIWAS.  Such an interesting perspective to scrap with ideas from songs whether it is lyrics or just the way the music makes you feel.  Anything can be used for inspiration and I hope it will improve my layouts and also help inspire others too. I am very honored to be chosen to work with the wonderful ladies on this team.


Hello everybody, I'm Monia Fiocchi, I'm 37, I live in Bologna - Italy.
I am part of SIWAS DT from a long time and I hope to continue with this awesome blog!
I began with scrapbooking 4 years ago and I love to experiment and try new techniques of this amazing hobby.
I found out that music can inspire a lot of wonderful scrapbooking projects and I love to inspire you with mines!


Hello, my name is Astrid and I am from The Netherlands. I'm on SIWAS DT since September 2013 and I am still in love with music as inspiration for scrapbooking.
I began scrapping in 2004 when I bought a scrapbooking magazine,  I became more interested in scrapbooking in 2006 when my son was born and a new passion was born too, lol.
In the last few months I'm experimenting with paint, watercolor and stamps . I love trying new techniques.
We have a lot of fun challenges for you here and we hope to see you play along.


I am a French woman who lives in Brittany in France, married and mother to teenager boy. When I am not working, I love to scrap. I have always been creative, but I really started scrapbooking a few years ago when two friends of mine showed me their scrapbooking work. I love to work with a lot of papers, stickers, ink and others embellishments. I don't have my own style, I like to do different things. I am so happy now to join "Scrap It With A Song" Design Team. To see more my work, visit my blog "L'Encre Et Scrap".


Hello, I'm Melody.  I consider myself a graphic artist with a MBA in Marketing. When our 5 children were younger, I cross-stitched, did a bit of sewing, painted t-shirts and sold wood cut-outs at an antique mall booth.  Since operating my own antique mall for 5 years, I learned to lay ceramic tile as well as acid stain cement. I acquired some great antique and architectural pieces and now have Rent My Vintage, an event styling business, mostly decorating for weddings. My husband of 28 years and I are enjoying being grandparents (in May of 2016-we will have 7 grandkids), and currently I babysit our 5 year old grandson. A good learning experience was a 100-page commissioned scrapbook for Miss Rodeo New Mexico that was completed in 90 days! Next up is a digital swim team scrapbook. I hope you all have fun scrapping along.

After many years of work now I am "FORCED TO REST" and luckily that for several years I dedicate myself to scrapbooking. I love it so much that I have two blogs and two facebook pages that I take care personally. I also like the mixed media, watercolor and color with copic. In my spare time as well as scrapbooking I dedicate myself to reading books, going to the cinema and to the theater. But scrapbooking remains my great passion and helps me get through even darker moments.

I have been a crafter and scrapbooker since I was a child and taught in a scrapbook store throughout college. I love to complete traditional layouts as well as pocket scrapbooking spreads along with cards, home, and party décor  with my supplies.

I love to meet and network with crafters from around the world and am really looking forward to working with all of you to push the creative envelope and try new things.
