Announcing... Our 2015 Design Team!

Good morning... today's the day...  we've been keeping it under our hats, but the day is finally here to announce our 2015 Design Team!

We're so excited to introduce you to the 3 new wonderfully talented ladies who have joined our team:

Mallika Kejriwal

My name is Mallika Kejriwal. I am from India and I just moved to Chicago. I have loved colors, threads, ribbons and such since the age of 5 – I remember making pretty clothes for my dolls as a little girl.As I grew up, I engrossed myself in studies and forgot about my creative side. It was during my junior year of engineering (I am a computer science graduate), that I started making cards using newspapers, old scraps of paper etc. I stumbled upon a card making blog and was simply amazed by the amount of glamor that could be associated with a piece of paper. I started my own blog – Aola Handmade Cards – after undergrad and have not looked back since.
I love teaching and inspiring via my Youtube Channel. Crafting is now not just a passion for me, it’s also an addiction! I hope to inspire you all with wonderful ideas and projects.

Sindi Jeffers

I am from the beautiful mountains of East Tennessee. I live in the middle of nowhere with my little family, which includes my husband and (not so) little boy. We also have several chickens, a large goat who thinks he's a puppy, and two very spoiled basset hounds. I have been scrapbooking for over 12 years now. My son is the subject of most of my layouts, but I also enjoy heritage scrapping. My style is very eclectic and changes with my mood. I'm very excited about this new scrappy adventure!

Farheen Khalil aka Fena

Hello everyone!! My name is Farheen…my nickname is ‘Fena’. I live in New Jersey, USA (very close to Manhattan,New York City), with my husband and my 6-yr old son.  I am basically a Bachelor in Engineering (in computers) by profession and into software development and testing. 

Scrapbooking is a craft where I can blend art with photo and design, and use it for capturing all the cherished moments in a unique way.  I love scrapbooking because it reflects all the passion I have for arts n crafts since childhood.  It’s a passion and my creative outlet.

I love mixed media layouts creating rich textures and love to incorporate masks, paints, inks, beautiful flowers and embellishments.

I am so excited and thrilled to be joining the whole bunch of gorgeously talented ladies here at Scraps of Darkness. Thanks to Melinda for making me part of this fabulous DT.  I would love you to visit my blog.
