So much is going on at Scrap It With A Song!!! Tomorrow starts our new design team members. Let me introduce them now!!
First we have Mindy Gallagher...
Hi there! My name is Mindy Gallagher and I'm so happy to be part of the Design Team
here at Scrap it With a Song. I've been scrapbooking for years & I just recently started
blogging last summer & well I'm totally hooked! I love a challenge! Actually I can't believe
how much I get done with the inspiration of a challenge! I live in sunny South Florida with
my hubby and my daughter who is pretty much the star of most of my work! I work full
time, so my time scrapping is my therapy, rest and relaxation! Once again I am super
excited to be here & I look forward to seeing everyone's wonderful work!
I live in Stawell, in the south east of Australia (in the town where I was born and raised) with my husband, poochie and special needs 'foster' daughter with multiple disabilities. I have a vision impairment, so my crafting is very precious to me. Mum and Nan started me cross-stitching and embroidery. Mum knits and crochets, Nan was a milliner, Grandma was a ballgown seamstress, so I guess I had no hope!) I got my own back though, because I’ve turned Mum into an addicted scrapbooker!
I am a cardmaker, scrapbooker, stitcher, and beader... now and then I will tackle a 3D or off-the-page project. I love to use digital images in my cardmaking (colouring with chalks, markers, watercolours, H20s), but am a traditional scrapper. I love to feel layers, textures, and lumpy embellishments! I love using beads, buttons, lace, ribbon, flowers, bling, lots of colour, or minimal colour in vintage styles. I call me ‘ecclectic’ because I play in many styles, mixing themwith uncomplicated Clean and Simple pages... but will often spend much time stitching, or creating that ‘fussy handmade embellishment’.
I create cards using stitching and embroidery, and beading, and design many of my own card stitching patterns. I also make jewellery, and favour vintage styles - my pieces are individually crafted, and no two are the same. Although I am lucky enough to be able to sell some of my cards and jewellery at a local market, and by special order, I love to share my creations as gifts to friends and family.
I do demos for local events - ladies groups, craft fairs etc - and sell my cards and jewellery at a local market and by special order. I also run a community scrapbooking group (going weekly this year!) .... just can’t get enough paper!
Although I’ve scrapbooked since the mid 90s (with various breaks and deviations) I believe it is a heartfelt craft/passion in which we continually learn and experience – we relearn old forgotten techniques, we relive memories with our photos. We are constantly evolving and I don’t believe in any creation ‘not being good enough’ our only measure is our self ... what we create and share is a part of ourselves, and I am thrilled to be able to do that here at Scrap It With a Song!
And last but not least is Tita Freddi...
I am an Italian scrapper. My name is Teresita, but friends call me Tita. I am 33 years old, I have lived abroad for some years and then I came back to the north of Italy in late 2009. I work in an Administrative office. I like my job but at the end of the day my creativity needs to get out somehow!
I discovered Scrapbooking in 2008 in Brussels, Belgium, thanks to the right encounters! And since then…I became scrap addicted! Now I would spend more money in scrap stuff than in clothes!! My style is I free, colourful, and even flashy sometimes. I love making 12x12 layouts, but I am happy when I can make cards to offer, or little paintings to be hung. I often scrap in the evenings or during week ends. My favourite subject are pictures of me, and since I do not have children, I scrap my friend's kids! My scraproom is a mess, but I could not work in a tidy corner. I need my Inspiring Chaos, let's say. I am excited of becoming a DT member here on Scrap it with a song!! And I hope to give inspiration and have fun! You can see my works on http://tita-scrapamoi.blogspot.com
