November card guest designer... Angela!

Help me welcome Angela back as our card guest designer this month!


I've been scrapping for around 20yrs and love everything about it. My favorite part is reliving the moments that I've caught on camera and remembering the little things that would be forgotten otherwise. I have 4 kids; 2 girls 18 & 15 and 2 boys 14 & 7, so I always have lots to scrap about. Besides scrapping I enjoy softball, volleyball, hiking, camping and taking photos.

Thanks Angela!

November guest designer... Jennifer!

Please welcome Jennifer as our November single page guest designer!


Hi I am Jennifer Irvine. I am from Calgary, Canada. I have a wonderful husband of almost 17 years (who was my high school sweetheart and still is), two amazing boys 13 & 10 years old, two funny dogs, two crazy cats and one adorable rabbit!
 I am so excited to be a guest designer at SID in November. I have been scrapbooking and card making for about 14 years! I started it as a way to keep busy when I was pregnant with my first son but have continued scrapbooking to document our family’s journeys. 
I started Scrapatini in 2013 as a way to share my love of scrapbooking, card making and other crafts. You can check out my blog at www.scrapatini.com or Facebook at https://m.facebook.com/scrapatini/

Here's Jennifer's layout:

Thanks for joining us this month, Jennifer!

do you want us to continue double page sketches?

Double page entries are down so I posted a poll on our Facebook page. I'd love if you took a few minutes to go vote.

Our double page sketch team and designers are amazing! I know double page spreads take more time to create so we started posting them at the beginning of the month. Still, double page entries are less and less.

Do you want us to continue with double page sketches? We appreciate your feedback!

November guest designer... Laurie

Please welcome Laurie as our double page guest designer this month!


I'm a Midwest transplant on the East Coast. By day, I review toys, but by night (and every other hour I'm not at work), I'm a blogger and scrapbooker. I've been scrapbooking since high school, but my scrapbooking style has definitely evolved over 15+ years. I am also a first-time mom to a little girl, so I always have a lot of pictures to scrap! And I am always behind on scrapping them!
 
You can see more about Laurie's page on here blog HERE.

October guest designer... Asa!

Please welcome our card guest designer, Asa.

Hi!
My name is Åsa Johansson and I´m so proud being a GD here this month. I just LOVE this card sketch!!!
I´m living in Sweden with my three children, my partner and a dog. I work as a teacher since 18 years.
Scrapbooking and cardmaking are my big addictions. I started 2007 when I was pregnant with my twin girls and couldn´t work. I haven´t stop since...
I mostly do cards and layouts. My style is CAS. I love CAS. I don´t think that is a simple style. 
I love to meet friends and scrap togehter at crops. It´s so lovely to be inspired by others and feel that good feeling that you maybe can inspire some others. I cross my fingers and hope that you get some inspiration from my card. 
If you want to visit my blog and say hi you´ll make my day: https://scrapatheltenkelt.blogspot.se/

Hugs, Åsa!
