Can you believe it is a new month already? We are now smack bang in the middle of the year! Time surely flies! Last month we celebrated women – this month we are going to celebrate the
boys MEN in our lives! We are also introducing our next Design Team member to you – the very talented Mariaan Fouché! Here is a bit more about her
I am extremely honoured to be part of the first Scrapbook Studio Design team! I am very proud to see my name amongst those other tremendously talented woman!
I am 32 years old, happily married for 8 years to my husband Johan and we have two adorable little hooligans, Carl & Ulrich.
I saw scrapbooking in a magazine whilst on maternity leave with my first born and decided then and there that this is what I wanted to do. I love that my hobby can give me so much joy and at the same time create a legacy for my children.
It was only a year and a half later when I actually started and was hooked after the first layout! I love taking pictures and try to let the photo's inspire me but sometimes I will be inspired by a certain product, paper or get an idea from everyday things. I like to try new techniques and products and still have so much to learn!
I am so excited about the ideas that Cariena and Scrapbook Studio has with this Design Team. I hope I will do them proud!
Please visit her blog for more inspiration!!
Here are some close ups of the stunning page. We love the tearing of the papers and the mesh behind the middle section. The “pilot” theme is also repeated by the twine/hemp that has been glued down in a swirl! The title was created by sanding the Fabscraps Chipboard letters in the DT Kit a little bit for the word “little” and for the “pilot”, Mariaan printed it in reverse onto white typing paper. She then glued it down onto her black cardstock and easily cut it out! What a clever idea! (You will get detailed instructions on how to do this in the kit)
Mariaan used some of the elements on her patterned papers and in her kit to embellish the layout. She strategically placed the pearls on her layout – remember that a Scrapbook Page is NOT a cupcake – we don’t randomly sprinkle embellishments!! (Candice Greenway)
The Enmarc Chipboard pack contains an aeroplane, a boat and a car, so this kit could really be used to create a travel layout as well. Mariaan painted the Chipboard Aeroplane in colours that complimented her layout. She cut some clouds from white Cardstock and chalked the edges. We love this layout! Thank you so much for this, Mariaan! We can’t wait for the next one! To buy your June Kit, please visit our online shop here and get yours today!
