Introducing Lisa-Marie!

Hi everyone! I'm happy to introduce another new member of the Mix It Up Challenge Blog DT! Say hello to Lisa-Marie! Her blog is Scrap | Paper | Scissors and I know you'll agree that her work is just amazing!


My late grandfather was a self taught artist and as such, taught me a lot of what I know now. I have always loved being creative and tried many different art forms - but it was scrapbooking that REALLY grabbed me in 2007. I've never looked back! I love photography too - so it's a great way to combine my two loves! I like my scrapbooking to tell a story, so the majority of my work will have a little 'history' to it. I'm a widowed, stay-at-home mom; and I do have an amazingly supportive life partner. They are both my world and I am building more and more memories with them to scrap! I love doing single page layouts and mixed media canvases; more recently, I've been bitten by the art journal bug and I am officially HOOKED! I'm looking forward to working on this team, alongside fellow talented artists! What a privilege it is for me to serve on this team and to, hopefully, serve as an inspiration!


Welcome aboard, Lisa-Marie! I'm super stoked that you've joined our team and look forward to 'mixing it up!'

Hugs,
Leslie

Introducing Mary!

Hi everyone! I'm happy to introduce another new member of the Mix It Up Challenge Blog DT! Say hello to Mary! Her blog is Ameera Crafts and I know you'll agree she has some serious talent!


I live in the UK and have been crafting for around 7 years. I don't really have a favourite craft, I just like to be busy and spend time playing around.
I love being a member of my Design Teams and I have made many friends from all over the world. I also own and run my own challenge blog which I love!
I love to craft and spend many hours watching videos on YouTube and other places learning new techniques, though I don't always put them to use.
I am afraid I am addicted to pretty papers and dies. I also like to colour and have a huge collection of digi, rubber & clear stamps.


Welcome aboard, Mary! I'm so happy you've joined the team and look forward to 'mixing it up!'

Hugs,
Leslie

Welcome Irena!

Hi everyone! I'm happy to introduce another new member of the Mix It Up Challenge Blog DT! Say hello to Irena! Her blog is Irena's Art and you're going to love what you see!


My name is Irena Stefanova.

I am a loved wife, a mother of 3 children and grandmother of a beautiful girl. I am living in a small town in North-East Bulgaria. I am a very happy woman, because I have the opportunity to do what I'm interested, what I love and what fits my values and my lifestyle. I have a volunteer's soul. 

I started with cards at the end of 2013. In the fall of 2014 I was hooked to mix media and since then it remains my preferred style. Actually It is difficult for me to define my style, because I want to try everything. The challenge to go outside of my comfort zone inspires me so much. I am a fearless and curious person. My favourite media are acrilic paints and modeling paste, but you may find that I love recycling, altered stuff, gelli printing and Art Journaling.

Welcome aboard, Irena! I'm extremely pleased you've joined the team and look forward to 'mixing it up!'

Hugs,
Leslie

Introducing Cindy!

Hi everyone! I'm happy to introduce another new member of the Mix It Up Challenge Blog DT! Say hello to Cindy! Her blog is In Love with PAPER and you'll be amazed at what you see!


My name is Cindy Messer and I live in TX with my wonderful husband of 15 years and my two, beautiful kids. I'm blessed to be a stay-at-home mom. Before becoming a mom I worked for JPMorgan as a staff accountant.

I've been crafting in one form or another since I was little. My mom taught me to sew, crochet, embroider and counted cross stitch. My true love has got to be paper crafting though. I was invited to a friend's Stampin' Up party about 20 years ago and that is where my love of paper crafts began. I love to make cards, mini albums and home decor projects.

I'm super excited to be joining The Mix It Up challenge design team. You can visit my blog athttp://inlovewithpaper.blogspot.com/

Crafty hugs,
Cindy


Welcome aboard, Cindy! So very glad you've joined the team and look forward to 'mixing it up!'

Hugs,
Leslie

Introducing Ina!

Hi everyone! I'm happy to introduce another new member of the Mix It Up Challenge Blog DT! Say hello to Ina! Her blog is Little Bits of Craft and you're going to fall in love!


My name is Ina and I live in Sunny Queensland Australia.
I have been crafting for a several years now and 
and have made many new friends in Blog Land. 
There are so many products to entice us so there 
is always something new to try our hand at.
I have become a big fan of Mixed Media of late and love getting my fingers inked 
in the process. I love working with stamps dies and stencils.
Always fun to try new techniques which sometimes are challenging
and so rewarding to see the end results.
I am so excited to be chosen as part of the Design Team for the
Mix It Up Challenge Blog and look forward to
playing along with the Mix It Up Girls and inspiring members
to participate in this new Blog.
Thank You Leslie.
