Scrap Africa Mood Board no.79

Hello Everyone

We have a gorgeous and frosty mood board for you this month! ;-)

You can create a card, tag, layout, an altered project, journal pages or even a digital project!
You can create whatever you like! ;-)

We would just love to know what inspired you from the sketch and the sentiment behind your project!;-)

We have two fabulous Guest Designers for our mood board challenge.

Firstly, please welcome our Special Guest Designer today, Vicky Papaioannou! ;-)
She is an amazingly talented lady and is soooo inspiring! ;-)

Here's a little about Vicky.

Hi everyone! I am so happy to guest design today! A few words about me! My name is Vicky Papaioannou and I live in Greece.
I am happily married and I have two kids. Maria is 11  and Kostas is 8 yo. I am an independent craft designer and a mixed media artist. I have always loved anything crafty from painting, crafting to even jewelry making. When I discovered cardmaking and art journaling I was hooked for good.
For years I worked as a full time high school teacher, teaching computers with crafting as my hobby. But after the success of my youtube channel, I switched from a full time high school teacher into a full time independent designer and mixed media artist. I am finally doing what I love most, sharing my art with fellow crafters through my blog, my online classes and my live workshops around the world.

Vicky created this gorgeous card for the mood board challenge.

Here are some close-ups.

Thanks so much Vicky for Guest Designing for us! ;-) Such a cute and frosty card! ;-)
Please pop over to Vicky's site and Youtube channel to see more of her amazing work! ;-)

Our second Guest Designer is this talented and creative lady, Kareen Dion. Kareen was a previous TOP HAT.


First of all, thank you for this beautiful opportunity! I'm very happy to be here this month!! So, I'm Kareen or kjkareen on the "scraposphere" and I'm from Quebec, Canada. I'm a stay-at-home mom of two beautiful children (of course they're beautiful, they are mine! hihi) and I manage to have a lot of time to scrapbook! Do I have any particular style? I don't think so, I like to qualify myself that I am a clean mixed media girl! ahah And cluster style... But I can tell you that where I feel the best to create it's on a 12 x 12 layout! I need space, it's what I like the most! But, I sometimes do cards or canvas. It depends of my mood. I like to touch to everything, as long as I can create!

Kareen created this stunning page! ;-)

Isn't this just gorgeous!!!!

Here are some close-ups.

Thanks so much Kareen for Guest Designing for us. Your page is delightful! ;-)
Please pop over to Kareen's blog to see more of her inspiration! ;-)

Now to see what the Design Team has created! ;-)

 I used photos of our table settings last year as we in South Africa don't have the winter at Christmas.

Thanks so much to the Design Team for their fabulous inspiration! ;-)

As always...we  have 2 random giveaways up for grabs.

2 x  R300 BoBunny surprise parcel up for grabs.

You have until 31 October to upload your projects.

Hello crafters!!! My name is Christina Lampropoulou and I live in beautiful, sunny Greece with my husband and my two daughters . I have been scrapping for about 4 years and my girls (5 and 3,5 years old) are often my inspiration. I mostly love creating LOS but sometimes I prefer to keep my photos in handmade mini albums. Although I started with card making , now LOS are my obsession. I adore mixed media style and I always try to pop up my photo and not to hide it with embellishements. I love having my photo as the focal point of my page. Anyway that's some information about me.I am so excited about being in this wonderful team surrounded by these talented ladies. I thank Denise for giving me this opportunity! I am looking forward to sharing my projects with you!

Here is some of Christina's fabulous work.

I am really so thrilled that Christina has joined the team and I really look forward to all the creations that she will share with us! ;-)

So pop over to Christina's blog to see more of her gorgeous inspiration and also watch this space for more of her beautiful work! ;-)

Remember to play along with our sketch challenge here.
