We have an awesome challenge for you for the next two weeks and is hosted by the lovely Jowilna Nolte. This challenge is all about postage stamps.
Use postage stamps on your layout, old, new, rubber stamped stamps, whatever you have in your stash!!
We have an amazing line-up of inspiration for you!
Can you guess who might be our Special Guest Designer this month? She is often published in Scrapbooking Memories and is on the DT for the Scrapbook Store and originally is from Upington, but now living down under???
You may have guessed, it's the wonderfully talented Marelize Frisby.
Hi! My name is Marelize Frisby and I live in beautiful Perth, Australia. I have been married to my wonderful hubby (and best friend) for nearly 23 years now and we have two teenage children, Mark (19) and Joanne (17). I am delighted and very excited to be Guest designing for Scrap Africa this month. I have a very soft spot for this challenge site as I grew up in Namibia and lived in South Africa for many years, until we moved to Australia in 2005.
I started scrapbooking in 2004, after some prompting from a friend. I have always been a crafty person and tried my hands at many crafts, from pottery to decoupage. However, I don’t think I have ever been quite as fascinated (or ‘addicted’ as my family would call it) with any other craft as I am with scrapbooking.
I am fortunate enough to have been published in Scrapbooking Memories (an Australian scrapbooking magazine) on a regular basis and have written a series of ‘How To’ articles which appeared in the magazine on a monthly basis throughout 2012. I have also been on the design team of an online store called ‘The Scrapbook Store’ since they launched in December 2009 and have been their DT co-ordinator for the last 18 months or so. I’ve met amazing people through this craft and I feel blessed to have the opportunity to be involved and hopefully inspire others with my humble contribution.
