A New Designer!

We have been keeping a little secret... but we are finally ready to let it out of the bag.  We have a few design team announcements, and one of them is that an amazingly talented artist has joined our Scraps of Elegance team!

Stephanie Papin

My name is Stéphanie PAPIN, and I come from France. I live in an area of the West, in a very quiet corner, and in a country where the scrap is very popular and covered by very large amount of designers. I am 39 years old and I am also a mum of two beautiful daughters aged 6 and 9 years old. Crafting has always been my passion. I discovered scrapbooking several years ago, and I became completely addicted to this hobby.
Lena and Nickie are my main source of inspiration in all my work. I also love taking beautiful pictures, and I' m looking for capture beautiful portraits of my children, I love finding the fleeting impressions of the portraits, this is what give me more emotions, and with the scrap it somehow gives the guaranty to keep those memories for a long time.
My style ? I love above all the sweetness, all that is refined and sumptuous ! My style is somehow a little shabby with a  mixed-media side.
Technical side: I work mainly with flowers, stencils, inks …
I search always to create contrast between colours that i choose keeping some sweetness on my projects.
I 've discovered Scrap of Elegance some time ago, and with Scrap of Elegance i've always seen really gorgeous projects, the kits are so great with a choice of papers and embellishments really perfect.   I'm already sure, i will soon enjoy  to scrap with such beautiful kits.  I will thank  Scrap of Elegance and all  the team to offer me this possibility to work with such gorgeous kits!

Stephanie will begin designing for us with our June kit, but if you'd like to see some of her work before then, stop by her blog, and be sure to sign up to follow her - you won't want to miss one bit of the inspiration she posts!

We also have another lovely lady joining us in July, but we are keeping that secret until next month!

Sadly, along with this happy news, we are saying goodbye to a few old friends.  Sandi Smith finished her term with us with our April kit, and Mandy Zimmerman and Kathy Mosher will be finishing up with our May kit.  I'd like to thank all of them for the beautiful inspiration they've given us, and for their friendship, we will miss having you on our team, but we will still be following all the gorgeous work you do!
