Announcing our 2017 first term DT!!!

Sketch N Scrap is pleased to announce our new DT for the first term of 2017.  
Please welcome our returning Senior Team:
   Lisa: Blog Owner     




And a very special welcome to our NEWEST DT members!  
 My name is Amelia Harris. I was born in Mexico but was raised and still live in Idaho. I've been married for 17 years and we have 3 smart, beautiful daughters Adara (14), Senedra (12) & Arell (10) that keep me on my toes! I was introduced to paper crafting about 13 years ago but didn't really got into scrapbooking until 5-6 years ago. I don't feel like I have a particular crafting style, I just love to try new things. I also truly believe the best way to scrapbook is with sketches & friends! *;) winking I'm very excited to be part of the Sketch N Scrap Design Team!

My name is Diana Soling and I live in Yorkville, IL.  I am a mother of three, 2 boys and 1 girl and have been married for 21 years.  I started scrapbooking a few months after my oldest son was born and never looked back.  I started making cards when my youngest son was born.  I wanted to make his birth announcements.  I love reading in my spare time and hanging out with my kids.  We love going to the zoo (although only my 14 year old will go anymore) and watching movies.  We have three fur babies, two dogs and one hamster.  

Hi I'm Tina of Tina's Scrap Corner. I'm married to a great guy for 23 years, we have a furry older child in the house Buddy and in dog years he's older than us :) Buddy is an Australian cattle-dog (Blue Heeler). We also have 17 grandkids (combined families :) and 5 Great-Grandkids so lots to scrap. I work the overnight shift in a food factory as a production worker. I started scrapbooking in 2007 when a friend invited me to a crop and I was hooked :) I love to scrap and make cards with sketches, it's a way for me to get the look I want in the fastest way possible, like a roadmap gets you from point A to point B.

And finally our returning design team members!




We would look forward to sharing inspiration and creativity with you in the upcoming New Year!  I know you will enjoy continuing to see work from our returning designers as well as seeing new inspiration from our newest members!  Sketch N Scrap is hoping to inspire you for another amazing year full of awesome sketches, fun challenges and events and our newest endeavor ONLINE CROPS!  We hope you will find time to join in all the fun we have planned from 2017!  
We are also wishing our retiring members a fond farewell and thank you for all their hard work throughout the last year!  We are saying goodbye but not farewell to these members:
Thank you ladies for inspiring us in the past year and good luck on your future endeavors!!!!!  And most of all thank you to our readers!  We are inspired daily by your creativity and look forward to seeing your art work and being inspired by your talent for another year!
