Design Team Results are in!

Before I let you in on the amazing artists who have joined our team, I just want to take a moment to thank everyone who took the time to submit applications.  We truly enjoyed seeing your beautiful work, and we wish we could invite everyone who applied to join the team!  We only have a few spots available each call, and we hope you will consider trying again during our next call.

And now, the big news, we are honored and excited to announce that these are the talented ladies who will be joining our team!

Debbie Sherman

I'm Debbie and I live in Wyoming with my husband Jeff and our 2 Labs Mojo and Pearl. I'm also a grandmother of 7, who inspire me everyday, they are the reason I started scrapping!
I have been involved with one craft of another all my life.  I started out beading jewelry when I was about 7 and sewing when I was 12. One day I discovered scrap booking and then it became an obsession/passion!  My husband thinks I'm a hoarder now but I say I'm just well supplied. My style varies and over the years has changed.  One day I can be in a Shabby Chic mood and the next day  I find myself elbow deep in paint and art journals.  I'm a visual person and when I see a product I love I create around it.  I draw inspiration from many places, flea markets, family, grandkids, old and vintage and color.
I'm an avid photographer and have been blessed with many professional photo opportunities. I spend time with my camera daily. More photos = more scrapping!!
I'm beyond honored to be designing for Scraps of Elegance  and with all the wonderfully talented designers you are about to get to know.

Patricia Basson

'Hello SOE friends...
Patricia Basson from Secunda in South Africa saying Hi to new and old friends! I am beyond happy to have been chosen to join the SOE Team and look forwards to working with Kits that I have been admiring for some times.
I have been scrapping for a few years now, since end 2006, but have only really started enjoying playing with papers and mediums these past 3 years, after meeting and following fellow scrappers on Face Book and other social networks...I have a few idols who inspire me tremendously and hope that in a small way, I might be an inspiration to some one else as well.
I don't really place myself in a certain style category, for I love different styles and techniques, it all depends on my mood of the day to decide how my page will turn out. I do however love to layer, distress and occasionally sew on my pages. Also love working with flowers and adding embellishments to my work. Lay outs, cards and tags are what I enjoy doing most and have tried my hand at some Off the Page items as well.
I do hope you are going to enjoy my work and I'm hoping to meet some new friends along the way...
Thank you once again to Melinda and the SOE Team for inviting me into their group...."

Bente Fagerberg

Hi my name is Bente Fegerberg, I am Norwegian and I live in a small Swedish village.
I love to scrap and craft and also to spend time outside in my large unruly country garden.
I think I have scrapped for about six years now but have become more serious about it the last couple of years since I have been invited to different design teams.
I spent quite a few years at University both in Norway and Sweden exploring the world of languages, economics, statistics and art. But my very best years I spent as a stay at home mom to my three daughters who are now almost all grown up. We lived in Chile, Mexico and England during these years and got to learn and love a lot about these different countries. Since my children have grown up I now co-own a small business selling fashion accessories to shops and boutiques mostly in Sweden. I love the freedom it allows me.
I am currently on the design team at Les Papiers de Pandore, Papirdesign, Inkido, Scrap for Help and a I am a PaperHaus Magazine contributor.
I am so delighted to be a new designer here at Scraps of Elegance!

To Be Announced

Shhhhh... it's a secret!  Our fourth new designer has a current design team commitment that we don't want to compromise.  In order to be fair to all parties, we are waiting to make an announcement until that commitment has ended.  So stay tuned, more info coming soon!








The newest members of our Design team family will begin designing with our January kit, and we cannot wait to see her gorgeous work!

Welcome to the team, ladies!
