Scrapville Announcement

Well it's time again to introduce our newest member of the Creative Team.  I would like to thank Anthea for joining us as the outgoing Creative Team Guest, and for all her creative contributions to the Team at Scrapville.  I would also like to wish Anthea well with her other Design Team commitments.

New to the Creative Team Guest role is a familiar face to those of you that venture into Scrapville, or the Cyber people who jump onto the Blog to check us out - as that's where you'll see her wonderful work!  We welcome Heather Bensley to the Team, and offer you a brief bit of background so that you can get to know Heather better!
Heather Bensley - Creative Team Guest

I live: in Wodonga.

I have been scrapbooking and / card making for: seven years:  The birth of my first grandchild was the incentive to begin.

The type of style I like is: Simple with interesting colour and pattern mixes.

The colours I love to work with are: just about any colour:  I do a lot of pinks because most of my pages are girly, but I love the challenge of mixing colours.  Usually the photo I am working with will dictate my colours.

The products I love to work with are: I love the Adorn It mini alphas:  These are a recent discovery for me and I can't get enough.  anything bling can give such a lift to a page, and the Martha Stewart punches and anything floral.  Flowers are my major thing.

My favourite patterned papers are: October Afternoon.  I love their colour mixes.  Sassafras Lass, once again great clear colours and designs.  But there are such great ranges out there.  I just love to browse the shop and pick up new ranges.

The people I love to scrap most are: My family, this is the reason I do it.

I scrap at: I do a lot at home, but love going to CropVille at Scrapville!  It is great for an exchange of ideas.

I attend Retreats each year with: Friends from Ballarat and weekends with local friends.  I am anticipating a great time at the first Scrapville RetreatVille in September!

I have not submitted anything for publication.

I am excited to be a Guest on the Scrapville Creative Team because: It will be nice to share my styles and ideas with others and I hope that other scrappers out there will be able to take away new techniques to help them develop their skills.

Welcome to the team Heather, I am really looking forward to sharing your wonderful talent with our fellow Creative Team members and all the scrappers out there.  You can see Heather's August/September Sketch Layout on the Blog, or in store now.
