Sketch #3

Hello, dear fellow scrappers!
It is time for the reveal of our new sketch. We hope that you will like it as much as we did.
Enjoy it!

************

Our sponsor for the next two challenges (sketch #3 and challenge #3) is Scrap and Card Boutique.
In this online shop you will find a great variety of scrapbooking and craft materials, as well as some pretty gifts for any occasion.

Today we have two amazingly talented ladies as our guest designers.
We are very happy and honored to have them here with us at Scrap Africa!
Please give a very warm welcome to our own proudly South African...

Here is what Sophia has to say:
"Hi all you keen Scrappers…
Just wanted to thank the wonderful team on Scrap Africa for giving me a chance to be a Guest Designer this month. The new site is awesome and I wish them all they best as they grow from strength to strength.
I have reached that age, where they say life begins at 40, which I think is really true. Married to my loving and supportive husband Murray for 10 years. We have 2 beautiful girls Amy (8 years) and Chloe (4 years), they are my inspiration to scrapbook. I am born and bred in Durban, South Africa, a little city along the coastline. I had always been a keen card-maker, until my sister-in-law introduced me to the world of Scrapbooking in October 2001. I went for my first class at a local craft shop in November and you could say I had been bitten by the Scrappin Bug! When my husband and I had started to think about starting a family, the birth of my daughter motivated me to create a legacy to leave behind for her one day. As well as it being a hobby that I can actually loose myself in! My style….. well I don’t know that I have one, as my layouts range from simple to shabby to heritage and I am not afraid of colour or stretching my comfort zone. I try to keep as  much focus on the photo`s - sometimes my style changes with the wind but I guess that is creativity for you. I have had the pleasure of being on a few Manufacturing DT’s Pebbles Inc; Imaginisce and a few Kit sites too. Have been pubbed in a few mags local and international (Scrapbook Trends). A close friend and I started a kit club here in SA beginning of Jan 2011called Le Shabby Café, where we package a monthly kit filled with gorgeous yumminess (matching papers, cardstock and embellishments)…
I leave you with this quote “Life can be stressful. Scrapbooking shouldn’t be.”
To learn more about me click on my blog Sophia’s World "


Sophia flipped the sketch and tweaked it a bit to her design. She created clusters of embellished areas on her LO. Also she punched circles in the background paper to give it a 3D effect.
She says: "I loved the sketch this month. Hope to see you take part in this sketch challenge…have fun!"

Our next guest is well known and her beautiful work is loved by many -
Gerry van Gent

Gerry says:

"My name is Gerry - a 38 Bulgarian woman living in The Netherlands. I`m a mom of two adorable kids and a wife of a very supportive hubby. I`m lucky to be able to stay at home and have plenty of time to spend with my kids and of course I have plenty of time for my hobbies...scrapbooking and photography. I got involved in scrapbooking back in 2003 when my first child was born and I never stopped since then. I find inspiration in my kids, in everyday life and of course in the products I work with.
My work is always detailed and dimensional. I love misting, masking, stamping, making my own embellishments and I love hand-stitching on my layouts.
I`m designing for Webster`s Pages, The Scrap Cake, Manor House Creations, Imaginarium Designs, Once Upon A ...Sketch, The Color Room and I`m teacher at Miss Art`s.
Thank you for having me as a guest-designer!"

Today our scrappy house is full of guests! Erin and Tatiana were winners of our first sketch challenge and today they also joined us with their wonderful projects.
*********
****
Tatiana's layout is about "Dacha" which means a summer house or a country house. She used a photo of her daughter together with her great-grandmother. Tatiana sewed two layers of paper together with different stitches. She covered the chip-board letters with glossy accent. She wrote the story on a tag which is hidden behind the photograph.

Now it is our design team's turn to inspire you.

Jowilna says: "I loved working with this sketch...anything with circles is my thing! I did replace the top right hand circle for the totally awesome Graphic 45 circus cut out piece. My latest graze on layouts - using tile spacers - yip that white little thingie on the large circle. I just added some sewing and there you have a funky little embellishment! Enjoy!"
