Meet the team - Evgenia

Hello everyone! We are overwhelmed with such positive reaction we received from all of you on the opening of Scrap Africa! Thank you all for your great support!
In the following few days we will introduce you to our team members. We hope that you will enjoy learning some more about us. 
We will start with Evgenia. Here is what she has to say.
**********
Hello all!  My name is Evgenia Petzer, I am 27 years old, I was born and raised in Russia, but now we live in South Africa, Gauteng, Benoni.
I am a mom to a 3 year old boy and a photographer, with lots of plans in scrapbooking as well.
I started scrapbooking about 4 years ago and never stopped since.


Currently I design for Pencillines and a few manufactures - Tattered Angels, Melissa Frances, UHK and Chic Tags. I am also planning to start giving classes this year.
Please feel free to check my blog.
Here are a few of my favorite projects to show you my scrapbooking style.




Here is my photo-site, if you are interested.


Thank you for taking your time to stop here and read this post. 
Don't forget about our give-away and the current sketch challenge.
Have a great week! ♥

Sketch # 1

Hello again! Welcome to our first scrap challenge.
We hope that you will have as much fun playing with our sketch as we did. Enjoy the reveal from our talented team and be inspired!


Today we have two amazingly talented scrap ladies who joined us on Scrap Africa as guest designers.
Please give them a warm welcome!

Kim Watson
Here is what Kim has to say:
"Hi everybody! I’m so happy to be guesting for Scrap Africa. It is fantastic to hear of new exciting scrapping ventures emerging from within the super talent we have here in South Africa. I just know you are going to love these challenges. 
I’ve been scrapping for 6 years after being invited to a scrapping 'crop'. I admit I was nervous that day, didn't have the foggiest idea what a 'crop' was. I was pleasantly surprised that beyond the cute products & great coffee was a community of super friendly, creative ladies, many of whom I am still good friends with today. Over the years I have been privileged to design for some fabulous scrapbooking manufacturers & magazines. Currently I am working with Creating Keepsakes magazine as part of their Dream Team for the third year, Fancy Pants Designs for two years & this is my fourth year designing for Cocoa Daisy kits. For me scrapbooking embraces all the things I find beautiful: color, texture, layering & stitching and most importantly helps me capture my life & thoughts in a medium I love. 
I am excited to share a page with you today using this fabulous sketch, together with the new Love Story line from Fancy Pants Designs."

Our second guest designer also doesn't need a lot of introduction. Here is....

"My name is Nadia Cannizzo, and I live in Sydney Australia. I was born and raised in Greece and moved to Australia when I was 11. I am a mummy to 2, much loved and much wanted little girls and I have been married to my husband for the last 12 years. I am a Primary School teacher and have been teaching for about 11 years. I have been scrapping/paper-crafting officially for just under 2 years now and in March of 2011 I started my own challenge blog called Once Upon A...Sketch. At present I am on the Design Team for an Australian online store called Handmade By Suzanne. I am SO excited to be here and THANK YOU so very much for inviting me."
Here is Nadia's blog My Scrapping World

Here is some inspiration from our design team.

To brighten up the papers Svetlana used the doodling technique on this lay-out. Simply use a black pen to outline the paper details on your lay-out. It helps to bring some contrast and makes it more personal.

Cathy Lane


In the place of  the second photograph Cathy added a journaling card.

Jowilna Nolte
Jowilna turned the original sketch into a double page lay-out by repeating the left side on the right but using a single photograph. She made the patterned paper from glossy smooth card-stock and distress stains which gives a truly amazing effect. The stars is a resist technique using embossing and distress stains along with perfect pearls mists.
