I am a stay at home mum to two beautiful children, a 12yr old son and 8yr old daughter. My son has Aspergers, ADHD and Tourettes, and my loving husband is a shift worker, so life can be challenging at times. But I wouldn't have it any other way. After haveing lived the corporate life for so long I am now loving being at home. The best bit of course is all the crafting time I have now. I have always done some sort of craft after having been introduced to x-stitch by my grandmother when I was still at school. My love is paper crafting and especially scrap pages and cards. Each day is a new opportunity to create something beautiful. I have been a Guest Designer for Sawyers Place Washi Tape and have also done a stint of teaching at my local scrap store.


Italy


Hello all,

I'm Sandra I'm 25, I'm Italian and I live in Ravenna with my husband and our little Alice... the main character of my workI started scrapbooking for her, almost by accident and now I can not live without. I love art in all its forms ...I like to try new techniques and materials and on my pages there is always a touch of color ... a few sketches here and there ... I love to travel, visit museums, churches, monuments ... and I love the "sights" of the city ... see above is magical for me.


What I love most in the scrap is the desire to share and experience that continuously transmits.

This is my blog: http://www.lartevistadame.blogspot.it are all welcome.


Brenshevia
Tennessee


Hello all!  My name is Brenshevia and I am the mother of 2 adult children and grandmother of 3.  I started scrapping back in 2007 when I was introduced to it by my God sister.  She told me about how she scrapped and how fun it was. I became so interested that I came home and tried my hand at it and loved it!  The rest as they say is history.  As you will see, my grand babies are the primary subject of my pages, I LOVE scrapping those faces!  I don’t really have a style per se; I pretty much scrap the moment so my page could be clean and simple or elegant and elaborate.  Each year I try to incorporate something new into my style in order to grow.  I am really looking forward to creating and inspiring others here at Frosted Designs.   Please allow me to share my life's journey in pictures with you, by visiting me at Paper Memories.

Hi Everyone!  I'm Lydia Wiley and have been with Frosted Designs for 2 1/2 years now.  I absolutely love this team!  They are my cyber design family.  I have been married for almost 19 years and have three boys ages 13, 11, and 9.  I have recently moved to Illinois from New Zealand and although I love snow, I am very ready for spring!  I am a professional school photographer and in my spare time you can find me behind my personal camera or in my scrap room.  








Jeaunes
South Africa

I am 29 years old and have been married for almost five years, by the 29th of February this year, to a very loving and supportive husband (especially when it comes to my hobby).  I am an economist by day and a scrapbooker by night.  I am a HUGE animal lover, but more specifically a cat lover.  I have also recently added the word mom to my list, with our first little boy coming into the world.  

I love taking pictures, and I can never take enough, I will always take hundreds of pictures at an event or an outing, or even if we just go to the movies, I have to take a picture and it has to be scrapbooked.  I am one of those that people say to "Not another photo".  But in the end, the picture and the memory is all you have left of an event and the memory may fade but the photo will never.  I love the transformation that scrapbooking does to a picture.  It gives the picture new dimension.  No matter if it is the ugliest or prettiest photo, the moment it is placed on the right paper and embellishments, the picture just gets transformed into a masterpiece.  

I find it very relaxing to make layout after layout.  What inspires me the most are probably my photos!!!!!!!!!!  What I scrap on a day will depend on my mood and what I feel like scrapbooking.  It will also depend whether I have bought new paper from my favourite ranges as to what I scrap.  I am DEFINITELY one of those that firstly, have enough paper at home to open my own shop and secondly, that take pictures to match the paper I have bought.

I am a newlywed living in the deep south with my wonderful hubby, Jimmy and our adorable grey tabby, Carmella. I have been into scrapbooking for a little over 12 years, and I'm completely obsessed with the hobby and everything that goes with it! DIY, mixed media, altered arts, photography, paper crafting, & learning new techniques. I started my first scrapbook right before my senior year of high school, and been hooked ever since! I also love teaching people how to "think outside their box when it comes to scrapping or creating mixed media, and I get a lot of joy out of inspiring others!!! My favorite scrapbooking products/brands are Basic Grey, Heidi Swapp, Time Holtz (anything of his I'm totally obsessed!!) also I really like Crate paper, Authentique, Echo Park, and Purple Pumpkin embellishments. Some of my favorite things that I CANNOT live without are my iPhone, instagram, my 3:00pm iced coffee, my wonderful scrapping friends who are scattered all over the place, and I have an obsession with collecting antique southern postcards (they are all over my kitchen) and sunnies (sunglasses)! I have dreams of totally turning this passion into a job someday...somehow! So happy to be part of this team!!! Peace Y'all!
