Hello, Karola here – The ScrapCake Design Team Coordinator with a few words about our DT:
When I was asked to create and coordinate Design Team for a new brand – I felt great joy and pride, but also a heavy burden of responsibility! To create a great team is not an easy task. To choose from thousands of scrapers those special people whose talent and creativity really shines, who will certainly have an explosion of new ideas, always inspire, who will have real fun while creating projects using new products in our market and who will feel comfortable and safe in the team. But I managed to find such a lovely women, who apart from the experience, huge talent and creativity will bring unique personal touch and many other positive elements to The ScrapCake Design Team.
Let me now present our unique International The ScrapCake Design Team:
Do I have to say that I am absolutely thrilled, happy and proud to be DT Coordinator of this AMAZING Team? Do I have to say that this group of lovely ladies is my Dream Team? Past year (2011) was totally crazy for all of us in TSC, from the Owner – Michal to our youngest Designer from Children’s Department – Kuba (only two boys in our team!) This year was a great lesson for me and I enjoyed every single minute of work in TSC in 2011. Because I am not only DT Coordinator, but also (umm, mostly?) a Creative Director in this company and Product Designer – this fabulous journey was (and still is!) an amazing way to express myself, my ideas and brings my personality to the company. But all it’s thanks to Michal, who gives me so much support, plenty of my own initiative and great trust. I am sure this 2012 year will be most fantastic than the previous – we have new ideas, new plans, amazing New Design Team and so many fantastic TSC fans over the world – it’s a gift, which we will to share with you everyday! A word about me? I am 34 old Mom and wife, scrapbooking designer and instructor, who love this hobby so much and who turned out passion for papercrafting to profesional job. I’m so happy with this opportunity! In a everyday life I starting my day from the big mug of coffee and ending with a great crime book. Everything what is behind is related to my beloved small family and my passion.
I am so very happy to be remaining on the TSC team for another term in 2012! I have loved every minute of it and enjoy the chance to play with the awesome collections The ScrapCake offers. I really feel like this company is the perfect fit for me. :) A little bit about me… my main passion is scrapbooking, although I do other projects as well. I have been scrapbooking for about 10 years. My style can only be called the “Pamela style”…not really defined by any other so called style. My style typically includes lots of layers and I love including techniques on my pages. You can find my work in several different magazines, including Cards, Creating Keepsakes, Memory Makers, Scrapbooks and Cards Today, Scrapbooks Etc, Scrapbook Trends, and more. I live in the US, in beautiful Colorado, and I am a stay-at-home mom to two wild boys, ages 8 and 6, and a 2 year old girl.
Helo everybody! My name is Zuzia, some people call me Zu and in the Internet world I’m known as zuziucha. I presume, my scrapbooking adventure started about 3 years ago. This adventure is still alive and I hope it wouldn’t finish so soon. I devote ech free moment of my life to this hobby. I keep my memories in albums, but I also make cards, layouts, notebooks and other paper crafts. I’m crazy in love with my daughter – 5-year-old Julia. We spent lot of time together. Not so long time ago, our family got bigger because my little girl Lili was born. My two girls are now the main stars of my works. As I do really like to help people, I often take part in different charity campaigns and it gives me much pleasure and satisfation. I’m so happy to have the possibility to inspire you on The ScrapCake blog!
My name is Larissa Albernaz and I´m from São Paulo, Brazil. I´ve been married to my sweet husband Flávio for 11 years and we have an adorable daughter Isabela. As a paper crafter, I have been scrapbooking for six years. Along these years, scrapbooking has provided me a great sort of artistic possibilities and a lot of fun! In fact, I love scrapbooking because it provides me to express myself in style, mixing paper, embellishments, colors, memories and a message.While scrapbooking I pursue something that has sense to me, which inspires me and that can be different, interesting, cute, creative, colorful and fun! I adore papers!. One of my life’s little pleasures is to cut, tear and distress them, creating anything that translates the story I want to tell. A scrap of paper is the perfect place for my dreams and impressions.
January 2012 marked the fourth year since I discovered scrapbooking and totally fell in love with it! Although I had tried many domains of crafting before, it was scrapbooking that let me spread my creative wings and not only find a true passion. but also a great way to spend quality time with my kids, which in turn resulted in my elder son’s creations that are presented in the TSC Children’s Department. Although romantic and vintage climates are the closest to my heart, being a mum of two boys I can’t avoid more “modern” designs and bolder colours, therefore TSC collections are always a hit for me. I’m absolutely delighted to spend another year in this team, nowenriched with so many famous names – you can creatively evolve here as well as just spend nice time in a fabulous company.
Hi, my name is Renia, I’m a happy 30-something girl and I have a wonderful husband – though he doesn’t scrap. Scrapbooking is my hobby, my kingdom and my never ending adventure. Affection towards creative chores I got from my grandmother. Before scrapping, in my spare time I did some knitting, crocheting, cross-stitching, sewing (mostly decorations). In my scrap pieces I draw from these experience. I like doing mini albums and LOs the most, also did some cards, altered art and mixed media. I love colors, patterns and feeling of the country, cottage style – patchwork -preferable. My best scrap friends are (of colors) deep red, navy blue, creme, and (of patterns or addings) checks, strips, small flowers. If I also had some lace, crochet flowers and buttons, I don’t need nothing else. Even though, I’m open to new things and techniques. I’m so happy to join the ScrapCake Design Team this year!
Hi, my name is Tomoko Takahashi and I live in Osaka, Japan. I am blessed with a 3 year old daughter.I started scrapbook in Mar. 2009 and I’ve loved it ever since. I love to use gentle colored paints and mists on my pages to create soft and feminine styles but I also love to use bold and vintage style every now and then. Recently, I am into adding mixed media and lots of glitter to my pages! (just love all the sparkles;o)) My inspiration comes from beautiful products and lovely pictures of my precious daughter. I am so honored to be part of The ScrapCake’s design team and really looking forward to creating with lots of beautiful products!
Hi, my name is Nerrida. I have 3 girls – Braylee, Maitlyn and little Indiana and am married to hubby Garret for 15 years. We live on a Stonefruit farm outside of Sydney, in Australia. I Homeschool my 2 school-aged girls, prune & pick fruit trees and, in my spare time, you guessed it, scrapbook. I love the romantic/whimsical style but love to try for little details if I can. Layouts are my favourite but also enjoy making cards. I have been scrapping for about 8 years now and started because I had children. Mostly, I’m inspired by papers, then photos of my girls, also other layouts I see while blog hopping or in magazines. I am so pleased about being on The ScrapCake Design Team once again this year. It’s a wonderful friendly team, a pleasure to be on and the products speak for themselves – inspirational and beautiful!
Hi! My name’s Magda. I’ve been interested in scrapbooking since 2009 just after I moved to Great Britain. The variety of materials and techniques astonished me so much that I’m a scrapbooking freak till today. I can’t resist to add some specific character to my works – such as fineliner squiggles. Usually I make cards but you may also find some frames and notebooks on ma desk. I’d also like to try some LOs but my photolab is not on the way. Mostly I use one collection in the particular work with a minimal number of other elements. I’m so happy to have the possibility to join such fantastic TSC Team! I hope that I’ll inspire you every day and I’ll represent The ScrapCake worthily!
I am Trudi Harrison from Victoria, Australia. When I am not crafting, my world is kept busy with my 2 young girls and the extra curricular activities that comes with raising kids LOL. I would not have it any other way. I adore all things beautiful and creative and over the time there have been many hobbies which I have enjoyed. Without a doubt, though, Paper Crafting has become the one which I am truly passionate about. It has steadily burned brightly for over 6 years now. Paper crafting has ‘officially’ been part of my world since the birth of my first daughter in 2004. More often than not most of my inspiration will come from the product or the photos I am working with and of course, the little things that my children say and do. Many of my creations will feature them, who are aged 4 and 7. Most of my creations will feature layering, paper cutting, detail, dimension, and sometimes it can be quite ‘feminine’. I absolutely adore floral patterns, blooms and chipboard. I love to combine these with my love of patterned paper. I am absolutely thrilled to be part of The ScapCake Team!
My name is Gerry – a 38 years old Bulgarian woman who lives in The Netherlands. I`m a mom of two adorable kids and a wife of a very supportive hubby. I`m a SAHM and I have plenty of time to spend with my kids and of course I have plenty of time for my hobbies…scrapbooking and photography. I got involved in scrapbooking back in 2003 when my first child was born and I never stopped since then. I find inspiration in my kids, in every day life and of course in the products I work with.My work is always detailed and dimensional. I love misting, masking, stamping, making my own embellishments and I love hand-stitching on my layouts. I `m so honored and lucky to be designing for The Scrap Cake! I had an amazing year as TSC Design team member and I`m looking forward to having another exciting year. TSC products inspire me a lot and I always create with love.
My name is Florence Teixeira aka Floliescrap. I’m living in France with my husband and we have two children, Ruben and Emy. I have been scrapbooking since 2007. Scrapbooking has turned into my life one of my biggest passions, I enjoy creating layouts and altered objects. My daughter is very often seen on my projects because my style is more feminine but I also love to create stories about my son. I like design my ideas and create what I had imagined at the beginning especially for 3D projects. I generally spends much time on each creation, especially if it presents a picture to express my feelings better. Adding details and dimensions to my papercrafts is my favorite part. Embellishments are very important to me and more particularly flowers, stitching and cut-outs. I’m honored to be designing for several french manufacturers and now I’m absolutely thrilled to be here in The ScrapCake Design Team this year and hope you will enjoy my work !!
My name is Maria but I usually use my nickname – Karmeleiro. I’m deeply proud that I got the possibility to join The ScrapCake DT this year as well. Thank you Karola so so much!! Last year was fantastic, full of inspiring projects and it’s a perfect and priceless lesson for me. Working with TSC is sheer pleasure. I love working on TSC papers, they’re versatile thanks to that, you don’t have to limit yourself. Previosuly I was focused on making cards and small forms but I started to play with albums and LOs and I feel that these’re my newest adventures. I’m a mother of two lovely kids (Bruno 5 and Zosia (Sophia) 14 months) who motivate me to keep the precious memories in different forms of paper craft. Now, I’m staying at home but I always find somethnig to work with. I’m a teacher but I dream about my own private craft studio. I hope you will join us in 2012 TSC scrap travel! I’ll do my best to give you some inspiration!
We hope that by sharing our energy, commitment and projects we create with TSC products we will give you a lots of joy and inspiration!
