Meet Our Newest Designers!

Our latest Design Team Call has ended, and before I introduce our new Designers, I'd like to thank everybody who submitted an application.  You all have so much talent, and it was a very hard choice!

And now, I'm so excited to introduce our new DT members!

Karolina Stopyra aka Drycha

Hi! I'm Karolina Stopyra a.k.a. Drycha from Poland. I have boyfriend and almost black cat. By now I'm in jewelery school but before I passed the exam for the cook (trade school too).
I love to learn new techniques and bring them together. I made a lot of things; scrapbooking, cardmaking, jewelry, art dolls and others... I became interested in scrapbooking in spring 2008, love this form due to a combination of many elements.
I hope that you'll like my works, I'm so honored to be here!

 Rachelle Sigurdson aka Rachie Babe

I am married to my husband of 33 years, have 3 sons 30, 26 and; 23. I am kind of in the empty nest, but not quite yet as my boys keep coming home for lots of visits. When my boys started to leave home I did a crazy thing, I started with 1 dog and it slowly worked up to 5.
I love to scrapbook and garden, and always have to be on the go!!!! I will be 55 in Nov.

And some exciting and fun news, I am sure you all know who Escape Kitty is, she has become quite the celebrity!  I spoke with Escape Kitty, and she has agreed to be our new Mascot DT!

Escape Kitty - Mascot DT

Let me introduce myself. I am Escape Kitty. Until now, you probably only found me under JRABS artwork or Jennifer Snyder, but I have escaped out from under her. And I say YIPPEE to that! I have been all over the world and I firmly believe I am big enough now to be on my own (but still have my mom pay my bills! LOL) I got my start on Sept 1, 2010 as I was out playing in the yard enjoying the birds and squirrels. Really just minding my own business. Happy. Content. Daydreaming. When, but in an instant, I caught a movement in the corner of my eye. Since cats are noted for their superior vision, I had to do a double take because I thought my eyesight had failed me. I shut my kitty eyes for a moment and reopened them to disbelief. A coyote? In MY yard? Could it be? And he's drooling my way? Move move move! Find my mom . Run to safety. Big mistake! Really big mistake. Now she never lets me outside. Done - left to dream. ahhhhh but Kitty dreams really do come true. I am so very proud to be the newest Diva designer here at Scraps Of Darkness. So come follow me! I am off to Escape.   copywrite 2011 Escape Kitty

I'm very happy to announce that Renea Harrison will be staying on as one of our Designers, and Cheryl Casas will be staying on as our Mistress of Mayhem! 

I'd like to thank Celina Matthews for all the beautiful work she has done here at Scraps of Darkness, I know she has provided much inspiration to everyone! 

And I'll end the post with a little bit of eye candy and preview of the fun layouts you will see from Escape Kitty!
