Hello Everyone

We hope you are playing along with our current challenge, BUT for now we would just love you to know about our newest DT member, Ada Nicholls.

Hi my name is Ada Nicholls and I live in the beautiful South Africa. I am married to Bruce and have 3 children and 4 grandchildren.  

My work has been published by our local scrapbooking magazine.

I  have recently been chosen to be on the design team of Let’s Scrap. It is my first attempt at being a design team member.  

I am a freelance scrapbook teacher and have been for the last 8 years.

Creating layouts around my photos is just what I love doing.

Busy layouts are for me and I love adding lots of embellishments. Never to take away the emphasis of the reason for scrapbooking. My photographs!!!!
I have a LOVE of chipboard on my layouts as it gives it a bit of dimension.   I hope you enjoy it. Catch up with me and my activities on Face book as well as my block – http://adaskits.blogspot.com

Here is some of Ada's beautiful work below.

Welcome Ada and we are so delighted to have you on the DT! We look forward to seeing all your creations and working with you!

My style is classic with a distressed vintage feel, with lots of attention to details.  I like experimenting and trying different techniques all the time. Another passion of mine is altered art pieces, turning everyday items into works of art.

I am currently on the Design Teams for Kaiser craft, Meg’s Garden, Cardabilities and Couture Creations. I have been published in many magazines around the world, and I am currently on the Designer Hall of Fame for “Australian Scrapbook Ideas” magazine.

Sketch no.20

Hello Everyone

We start off a new month and we also start off a new sketch challenge here at Scrap Africa.

Check out the super sketch below.

Guest Designer Badge

We are so honoured and delighted to have a super, amazing Guest Designer this month and I have no doubt that you will know her instantly. She is the amazingly talented Keren Tamir!

My name is Keren Tamir and I'm 39 years old. I am a wife to a wonderful husband who is very supportive of my scrapbooking and a mother of two amazing kids; an 12 year old boy and a 6 years old girl. I've been scrapbooking for 10 years and I mainly scrapbook about my family. I love to create and experiment with many different mediums and techniques.
My style is mainly Shabby chic but I love to combine it with mixed media. I use lots of flowers and vines on my projects mixed with pastes and mists. My style is always evolving and that’s one of the things I love about this art.
One of the main reasons I started scrapbooking was to preserve memories and photos for my children. However over the couple of years, I’ve started to enjoy another aspect of scrapbooking. I love the artistic outlet that it gives me. I love to create and I’m passionate about what I do.
I’m currently a design team member at Prima Marketing, 13 Arts, 2 Crafty, Scrap around the world, Sketchbook 365 and Scrap for Help.
Hope you enjoy my creations!!


Keren created this gorgeous page! Aren't the details and layering just fabulous?

Some close-ups below, will really show you this super detail.

Thanks so much Keren for this heavenly inspiration! ;-) She really does create magic with paper!!
