Introducing . . . the new Design Team members:

Hi everyone!  We would like to introduce you to our brand new design team members today.  We look forward to them starting in July.

As promised, here are they are,so that you you can get to know them better :)     

Say hello to Carmen . . .
Hello! My name is Carmen, I was born in Brazil and live in Panama with my husband Alfredo. We have a married son who lives in Massachusetts with his wife and a newborn baby Elliot, our first grandchildren. I have been scrapbooking for about 9 years, and I'm completely addicted to it. About my style I can say that it's mostly clean, graphic and bright but I also love to try new techniques, love challenges and sketches! Ah! And I love comments about my work! :)

Come meet Maria . . .

I'm Maria Cecilia Hernandez, Chilean, I have 40 years, I am a mother of young twins Diego and Martina which are my constant inspiration, I live in the countryside away from the hectic city. I am by profession a Clinical Psychologist, love psychology as much as Scrap .. On February 2014, I met the art of scrapping at a woman's fair, and I fell in love with it. The clean & simple style represents me the most. It connects me to the part of me that is a little repressed, it lets me see myself as a creative and talented woman who can express herself freely. On the other hand, I love both my family and my life I want to keep these memories, documenting my personal life and that of my children. I would like us not to forget the importance of them in my life. I have eternal gratitude for my life, my family, love, and freedom. "I love my life just as it is"

Here's Patricia . . .

I started scrapbooking 8 years ago. I never was an arts & crafts person . . . as a kindergarten teacher, I used to be creative, but being in school management it sort of went away. With scrapbooking and stamping cards, etc, I really found a way to work with color & emotion, in stead of rules & regulations.  I love paper, lace, buttons (!), and a lot of embellishments. A little mixed media to add layers, but not to much. I think the picture(s) should always be the center of the layout.I have a big volume of albums, and really love to look a all the pictures.It is so much fun to be on the team of Challenge YOUrself, wishing the new team and the followers the best.

Please meet Rachel . . .
Hello my name is Rachel Lowe and I am from beautiful Perth, Western Australia. I am married with four great kids. My crafting background is painting and quilting. However, once I discovered scrapbooking I was hooked. I would describe my style as classic/contemporary. I am a lover of clean lines, negative space, embellishment clustering and sewing. I also love using my Silhouette Cameo. I am a keen photographer and believe the ‘photo' is everything on a layout.  I am thrilled to be a a part of Challenge YOUrself DT team and I love the concept of being ‘in’ the photos, something us scrappers are often not good at.
