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
