Meet the new Design Team

Hello Everyone

As you will know, we have some exciting new Design Team members and they have already started showing us their beautiful work! But I wanted to really introduce you to these lovely and creative that you get to know them and watch out for their eye candy!

So today we take a look at these ladies, Ana Paula Cardoso, Anna Solnyshkina and Asmah Zainal Abidin.

Ana Paula Cardoso

Name: Ana Paula Bastos Cardoso
Age: 31 years 
I am from Balneário Camboriú - SC, Brazil 
I'm married and i have a couple of Kids.
After God my family is my biggest inspiration.
I love scrapbook and your infinite possibilities of application and i work with It 2 years.

My work and my style is eclectic but I consider more Shabby chic and clean.
I don't use a lot of technique and not cling to it, I just  let my heart flow to the role and everything I do in scrapbook.

Here is some of Ana Paula's beautiful work.

Please pop over to Ana Paula's blog for some more inspiration.

My name is Anna Solnyshkina, I live in Moscow, Russia. 
I'm a mom of one sweet son - Misha, and I can't imagine my life without all this creative mess in my craftroom :) I create since 2012.  My passion are layouts, cards and altered art.
I work in different styles - shabby chic, vintage .. Paints and sprays my favorite craft supplies with flowers and resins, I love lots of layers and decor. My second love at this time - video tutorial.  But my big love is flowers, I use them in all my works.

Let's have a look at some of Anna's work.

To see more of Anna's eye candy, please pop over to her blog! ;-)

"Hi! I am Asmah from Malaysia married to a supporting husband and a mother to four blessings. Since leaving the National TV station years ago, I am able to do arts&crafts full-time from home which I am so passionate about. I love artwork, art journal, scrapbooking, making cards, altered projects, home decoration, photography besides sewing, counted cross-stitch, ribbon embroidery, beadwork and needlecraft (when time allows). I love making flowers and embellishments, creating background, experimenting and exploring, learning happy mistakes along the way ever since my love for mixed media emerges the past couple of years. My style is always shabby/vintage with lots of bulky layers {I always say the more the merrier but sometimes I also love less is more} and the next minute will dabble in my work with inks and paints which is my true forte since childhood. I've been in some design teams the past years. At present I use variety of digital images for two design teams. I also play with lots of medium as part of my commitment to a mixed media design team. And on this day I feel happy to join Scrap Africa design team, thank you Denise. Last but not least, I am blessed by the inspirations from my children who are my strength and main source to keep me going into my artistic journey which can be viewed at my blog. I love to inspire and being inspired. Thank you for your time and artsy&crafty support." 

Here is some of Asmah's super work!

Welcome ladies and we really do look forward to seeing much, much more of your gorgeous work!

Here's what Irma had to say about herself.

My name is Irma Tirza, 49 years old, I live in Indonesia, with my two grown up son ( 26 and 22 yo ), I still work in company and currently teach at a craft store too.
I  felt in love with craft paper since end of 2013 , I thought  I was late to found my  passion in my life. I absolutely love mixed media so I prefer to bought art material than bought dress, or shoes.  I also make a card, album,altered  and sometimes I colouring  but  the most of all  is scrapbooking because I can reflect the photo with art in an unique way. I create my works let the imagination flow and my mood.  I love to learn in many technique and idea, using many layers, and used some medium. I'm so thrilled with this chance, thankyou Denise for this wonderful opportunity. I hope you love my creations and I would love you to visit my blog at :)
