Getting to know our Ct.. part one..

Hi Everyone...

We have decided to introduce you to some of our gorgeous CT team over the weekend.. as the next chall is due to be posted and i wanted you to know who has been designing them !
So far we have met Julene... so

Meet Mary...

Mary Bennetts

Hi My Name is Mary and I live In a Country Town called Orange in the Central West.
I have 3 Grown Children, Two GrandChildren and a spoilt dog called Scruffy. I have been married for over 30 Years to my Husband Tony that puts up with my scrap obsession.
I dont think I have a particular style, I think I adapt the style to suite my photo. I have been scrapping for over 7 years I would say, and I like to do something scrap related every day or I have withdrawals.
I have made so many, beautiful friends through this wonderful world of scrapbooking, scrappers are wonderful people. I have always loved photos and pretty papers, so scrapbooking is the perfect hobby for me (although its more than a hobby)
I also love Travel and reading.
Please feel free to visit my blog


Welcome Mary - we hope you enjoy your stay with us and cant wait to be inspired by you. !!

Meet Kim...

Kim Ewins

Hi, my name is Kim Ewins. I’m a married, stay at home mum, I live in the Central Tablelands region of NSW and my husband Roy and  we have 8* children, Alex-21, Rhys-19, Samantha-17, Mason-14, Madison-13, Sidney-9, McKenzie-7, Hugo-4. (That’s 5 boys and 3 girls.) No it’s not a blended family, they are all ours. The 2 eldest no longer live with us, Alex lives 10 minutes away with his partner, Ashlea and Rhys is at Armidale at UNE.
My life is full of children, keeping healthy, (my 17 yo DD and I plan to run, maybe fast walk, the City to Surf next year), I ‘am also studying  at present with the aim of going to university once my littlest man heads off to big school and of course, scrapbooking.
One of my favourite sayings is “Life is a balancing act, making it look easy is the trick”.
Hence the name of my blog
 My blog is I ‘am a current design team member for Craft queen and enjoying that with a passion.
I first started scrapping about 4 years ago... (So, wish I had started alot earlier.) I had been to a few Creative Memories parties during early 2002, but could not find the time for a hobby then??? Go figure.

I would describe my style as grunge, minimalistic, but occasionally I throw in something bright. I love stamping and altering backgrounds, and also love lots of layers and texture. I feel my style is still developing and boy am I having fun developing it....
I often use songs when I create...there are just so many fabulous lyric’s out there....also songs can take you back to a certain time in your life and evoke so much emotion...
Looking forward to working with the Creative Team here at Scrap that Song and with fellow scrappers, Like You.

Welcome Kim, looking forward to your wonderful and inspiring layouts based on our challenges. We hope you enjoy your stay... :)

New Designer and CT Application.. challenge entries..

Hi !

Well, we have our first new designer Julene Matthews has been appointed and if you wanted to become one for us, too, please just send an email to us (look for the link bar on the side) with a short bio, a layout -can be one using one of our songs or not and why you would like to design for us. Ensure your blog is linked as well.
Hurry though, theres only one more week left.. Look forward to receiving it.

The first challenge, have you done it yet??

Julene has!!

This is her take.. :)

Here's my layout for the July challenge. I've made most of it from "leftovers". The black hatching is the sticky stuff between October afternoon mini letters,the tree was using up left over paint,the border punch was an offcut,the buttons are from an old jumper and the photos were offcuts from various photos.The only 2 new things were the sun and the strip film shape thingy.This traces my daughter from her 17th birthday to her graduation from University.A difficult time of maturity for any girl. Thanks,Julene


Dont you love that top corner?? I love the photostrip frame, showcasing the different stages..Great work!!

Welcome Julene, thanks for coming aboard.
I am looking forward to more of your gorgeous creations..

Have you done yours yet??
Put it in the linky on the side bar.. :)

Well have a great weekend everyone, i am off to scrap tonight and cant wait.. :)
