I enjoy all aspects of the scrapping... layouts,multi media, and cards...I am delighted to have been chosen to join this amazing team .

Cheers for now
I am the kind of person who has done every kind of cottage craft and fashionable hobby since the day I could let Mum know what I wanted! For alot of years I did art journals without knowing what they were or that other people were doing them. I was given all my great grandmothers photos and papers some 15 years ago so when a few years after that I went to a Creative Memories party it all made perfect sense to me. Taking my cardmaking and scrapbooking, I have in the last 6 years embraced all things creative and love not only paper craft but all mixed media art. I simply couldn’t survive my hectic life without art as an outlet!
I don’t think I have a style! When I am creating for my children’s albums I tend to change alot from layout to layout because I am creating for that person with their personality and tastes in the mix. However I would say that most things I do are bold! And usually very layered!
I now live in Newman, Western Australia, which is a small Pilbara mining town and I am sincerely in love with it! And I love that since I have been here I am not working out of the house anymore and can wallow happily in my art a lot more often!!

I live in Baldivis, WA with my husband Jeff and 2 teenage daughters (our adult son lives on the Sunshine Coast). I work during the week managing a child care centre and on weekends we are respite foster carers for children aged 0-5 (we give regular carers a break from fostering).
I have been scrapping for 12 years (started with Creative Memories) but only really discovered scrapbooking 6 years ago. My husband and I have a great deal - whatever he spends on fishing equipment, I can spend on scrapbooking :)
Scrap Style: I like to scrap 8.5x11 or 6x12 layouts (with the occasional 12x12). I like a clean simple design with the photo being the main focus.
My Name is Emily Pearce.
I'm from the outback, country NSW!
I live with my 2 children, Jaxon 10, and Jayda 6, and my Hubby Jason of 11 years.
My passion is photography, and of course scrapbooking! I also do a little card making.
I find that my scrapbooking mojo thrives on challenges and enjoy them alot
I'm very much looking forward to working with Eve and the DT for Black with 2
I don't really know what my style is but I love color and paint. You will always see paint on my LO's and the more the colors the better. I love to layer as well and use lots of embellies on each page. Looking forward to getting started on BW2 journey and hope you can all play along.
I am very excited to part of the BW2 design team, I was a regular participant for a long time and always love the challenges that were presented every month. I look forward to working with all these talented and lovely ladies and am excited to see what they challenge us with.
Hugs, Nick xxx
I have been scrapping for about 6 years now and my favourite subjects to scrap are my family (Husband of 16 years Steve, son Tom aged 13 and daughter Meg aged 10), my niece and our pets! I was never going to take up scrap booking.... but I did....and I was never ever going to do those lumpy bumpy pages.... but I did.... and I was never going to meet up with anyone I met online... but I did... and I am so glad I did! The friendships I have made through this craft are one of the things I love most!
I seem to do something scrap related everyday- even if I’m not actually creating I am browsing scrap magazines, reading blogs and planning the next layout. I scrap in 12x12 format and occasionally make a few cards. The only word I can think of to describe my style is “evolving”- I’m always trying new things. Most of my layouts tend to feature some “fussy cutting”- I find that very therapeutic!
I work part time as the Parish Administrator in the local Anglican church, and am very blessed to have a job that I love! I’m also a Guide leader and first id trainer. As a family we love camping and try to get away at least once a month. And I am passionate about following my favourite sport- V8 super cars!!!
Thanks Narelle .
Hi My name is Tracey Campbell, I am a wife, Mum to two beautiful daughters and an Officer in the Navy....scrapbooking is my creative outlet that allows me to have some time to myself and to make
a mess, it is my stories, thoughts and feelings all parcelled up onto a page as a history for my girls.
Currently I live in Western Australia, but being in the Navy I am sure that will change. Our house is
a crazy house full of fun, laughter and animals, which makes for great scrapping layouts. My scrapping
style is a bit eclectic I change styles to match my photos and products, but I do love to use paints
pens, mists and doodling often on my pages which makes for some interesting artwork. I look forward to
sharing my interpretation of Black with 2 with you all.
WOW what a team we have now stay tuned for the first challenge launch on the 1st of April wait till you see what the girls have done their work is stunning .
Till then take care
Hugz Eve and the Designers
