Here's a little about Christina! ;-)

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.
Be back soon!

Scrap Africa Sketch Challenge no.78

Hello Everyone

It's a new month and so a new challenge at Scrap Africa! ;-)

For many of you, in the Northern parts of the world, you are returning from holidays and vacations and perhaps we can challenge you to scrap those summer photo's! ;-)

So here's the sketch challenge.

Sep Sketch Challenge due 29 Aug

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 some super duper Guest Designers to inspire you.
So a warm welcome to Paulina, Amelie and Autumn! ;-)

Firstly, here's a little about Autumn.

I'm Autumn from SewPaperPaint and am so happy to be a guest here today!  I am married to an amazing man, and my biggest supporter. We have four children, yes four! I work full time as a church secretary. I have been paper crafting for over 15 years. Creativity is my outlet, passion and purpose. I define my style as grunge meets elegance. Though I love to distress everything, I like to balance my work with a touch of pretty and neat. I am new to scrapbooking, but not mixed media.  I have enjoyed creating mixed media layouts as inspired by Scrap Africa's talented design team and challenges.  Thanks again for the invitation!  

Autumn created this gorgeous project.

Isn't this canvas just fabulous!!

Our second Guest Designer is Paulina! ;-)

Padoriaa was created out of my passion for the unconventional. I'm an individualist following her own path...sometimes twisting, always unique 🙂 I'm a past Taekwondo fighter, nail artist, stained glass worker...currently a waitress and scrapper. I'm a 100% involved in each project. I like to be around people who support me and motivate to harder work! "Do what you love, love what you do" - that's my motto 🙂 I make my dreams come true step by step 🙂
I love to craft and show emotions. I felt in love with cards. In this small type of project I love to use mixed media and a lot of layers, laces and chipboards. In scrapbooking I like the most that the style is not create by place or country where you live - it is create by your imagination, emotions, experience ... People are different and each of us have our own unique style. The market is full of goodies and we can use the same things to create our project but the final result will be different.
Hugs, Paulina

Paulina created this fabulous card.

This is just so beautiful, soft and detailed! ;-)

Our last Guest Designer is Amelie! ;-)

Hello, My name is Amelie. I live in Quebec, Canada, Rimouski more precisely, a city located on the shores of beautiful St. Lawrence River. I live with my partner of 13 years, as well as Clara our 6 year old daughter and Albert our golden retriever. I'm manager for the family business.

I discovered scrapbooking by chance, passing a kiosk review it 10 years ago. I immediately had the bite, it became a passion for me. I like to create my background pages myself, I love the spray inks, powders, the modeling past and masks. I love getting my hands dirty !!! I also love the stamps and dies of doilies or foliage. And of course, the flowers !!! I am part of the creative team Scrapbook Trendance, a Quebec scrapbooking shop and Scrap FX, an Australian company chipboard.

Amelie created this stunning page.

This page is just fun, delight and gorgeousness! ;-)

Thanks soooo much to these 3 lovely ladies for their beautiful creations and inspiration! ;-)
