Meet the new creative team members
First let me say thank you to all the ladies who applied to my creative team call. I have enjoyed getting to know you and scrolling through your galleries. Unfortunately I could not take on everyone, so choices had to be made!
I’m so happy to introduce to you the new additions to the digital team:
Alidalis Acevedo – everyone on the internet knows her as Dalis – is originally from Puerto Rico, a Caribbean island. She is a mom, wife, daughter and sister. She started with paper scrapbooking 20+ years ago, and moved to digi almost a decade later. Alidalis doesn’t have a specific style, she says, her mood shows in her scrapbooking. Her art journaling is raw but her scrapbooking pages are softer in comparison, she adds. Go see her gallery here.
Anita Funke Pottinger lives in the US, Midwest area, where the weather is crazy most of the time, it could snow in the morning and be 70 degrees by mid afternoon. Anita has been married almost 20 years to a wonderful husband and has 2 fabulous kids. Family and friends are her favorite subjects to scrap! She used to paper scrap and she had a craft room full of paper and all the cutting tools, but made only 5 pages in about 10 years. When she discovered digi-scrapping, she made about 1000+ pages in 9 years. She is now so addicted to it. Her second love is photography and when she retires she wants to take photos of newborn babies at the hospital. She also likes other crafts, her new toy is the cricut maker and she cannot wait to make vinyl iron on T-shirts for her daughter, print and cut calendars and to dabble in junk journaling now that she’s on my team. Anita has 3 dogs, 2 cats, a guinea pig and a bearded dragon. She would have more if she lived on a farm… maybe one day! Anita is known as apottinger in the galleries. Discover her work here.
Gaelle Tomé lives in France with her hubby and their two boys. She has been scrapping since the summer of 2012 and has a varied style, going from mostly clean layouts to art journaling and pocket pages. She started scrapping so she could give her children an album with memories of their everyday life. Gaelle is known as Ga’L in the galleries and you can see her work here.
Marie-Christine Hoorne Marie-Christine Hoorne was born and raised in Belgium in Oostende. She moved to Bristol, UK, in 1978. Her work involves supporting the graphic designers for the Fire Service in the county of Avon amongst other tasks. She has been scrapping for several years now and loves trying out new techniques. She is inspired by other people’s creations, photos and layouts. You will find me outdoors a lot, walking with camera in hand and she just acquired a beautiful Golden Retriever, life is good and full of creative moments. She goes by the name nollipap in the galleries. This is her gallery at Oscraps.
Merethe Liljedahl Merethe Liljedahl – Lime in the galleries – has been digi-scrapping for years! She lives in Sweden, has 4 children, 3 wonderful grandchildren and 3 cats. She works as a medical secretary at the local hospital. Check out Merethe’s gallery at Oscraps here.
And these awesome ladies are going to reinforce the hybrid & paper crafting team:
Marisa Carocho Figueiredo was born in South Africa, but is now living in a rural village in Portugal. She loves the mountains and getting inspired by beautiful views. Marisa started crafting 15 years ago with scrapbooking mini albums and layouts, she ventured into the mixed media world and now she is loving the junk journal adventure, that you can see on Youtube or Instagram.
Sheena Max W Sheena Max W discovered the world of junk journals about 3 years ago and has been in love ever since. She loves weaving storylines into each journal and her style is vintage eclectic with floral and bohemian touches. Why journals? As concisely summarised by Mr. Carson: The business of life is the acquisition of memories. In the end, that’s all there is. Discover Sheena’s wonderful creations on Youtube or Instagram.
I cannot wait to see all the layouts and projects that they will make with my designs!
