We have a LOVELY Guest Designer with us this month:


 

I was so excited to be invited to Guest Design for Another Freaking Scrappy Challenge - I love the prompts to get me going!

My name's Michelle Henderson, and I'm a Kiwi living in Christchurch, New Zealand. Our beautiful city was hit by an earthquake a while ago, and scrapping really became my therapy! Our buildings are being rebuilt now, stronger and better than ever, and our people have become so resilient because of it.

I started scrapping when my second daughter was born, and she's now nearly Sweet Sixteen, so I've seen a few style changes over the years...and of course my style has changed and adapted as I go along too. At the moment I find it hard to do a page without some sort of mixed media, I love getting my hands dirty. And the product that always makes it on to my pages at the moment are the Nuvo Crystal Drops - they're so versatile!

Drop in and visit me at my blog - https://artscrapz.blogspot.co.nz/ any time!

july guest designer ... Giorgia Rossini

Our guest designer this month is Giorgia Rossini.  We love her work and her visits with her work to our blog!!!
 
My name is Giorgia Rossini, I'm Italian and I live in a small city in centre Italy - Agugliano.
 
I am 34 years old, I am married, I love to read and to travel the world! I love everything crafty but scrapbooking is my happy place!
 
I started 6 years ago, I make especially layouts and very quick and simple cards.
 
I love mixing patterns and layering. My works are colorful and a mix of patterns. I really can't define my style, I go with the inspiration of the moment!
 
I had the chance to be in some scrapbooking DTs and I really love it!
 
Currently I design for Docrafts and CreaFamily (an Italian shop online)
 
 
 
 
 
Here is Giorgia's work for this challenge - such a beautiful card !!

june guest designer - Rita Russello ...

We are thrilled to have guest designing with us this month:


My name is Rita, Scrapperita on the web. This is my blog http://scrapperita.blogspot.it/ , that I have had for 7 years. I have just turned 40 and I live in Italy with my husband Vittorio, my daughter Giorgia and my son Giacomo. I love doing the LO and for me scrapbooking isn't a hobby but it's a way of life. In Italy there is the ASI (Associazione scrappers italia) with 800 members (and I am the vice president). Wonder Rita is the nickname they gave me - the members and friends scrappers!
Thanks Anne for this opportunity...  for me it is a honor to be your host.



Rita - Thank you so much for designing with us this month!!! It is our honour! We always love to have you play along with us - and are inspired by your work!!

And here is Rita's beautiful interpretation of our challenge:
