2019 Design Team Reveal

Hello everyone and welcome to our 2019 Design Team Reveal!  I so appreciate each and every one of you who took the time to apply and please know that just because you were not selected this time is not a knock against your talent.  There were just so many application to choose from.  It was a very difficult decision in that my "2-4" turned into 6 new members!  

Now without further ado, let's meet the newest members of the Let's Get Sketchy Design Team!
I live in Durbanville, which is in the Western Cape, South Africa; I live here with my life partner and my precious 8-and-a-half year old daughter.  I started scrapbooking in 2008 and although I've dabbled in many art forms over the years, scrapping has been the one that stuck. I also absolutely love taking photographs, so to be able to tie these two together to create one layout is something which I just relish.  My scrapping work usually tells a story - and I also just love the fact that in this day and age of modern technology and all memories being recorded digitally - I have actual live, 3D memories that my daughter can page through one day!  I'm incredibly excited to be on the Let's Get Sketchy team with SO many talented and inspiring ladies!
Lori

Hello! My name is Lori and I am thrilled to be on the Let's Get Sketchy Design Team! I live in a small SW Missouri town with my husband, Scott, and our 2 sons, Matthew and Shane. We also have a daughter, Abby, who is married to her high school sweetheart and they have a five-year-old little girl, Ada, that I have the pleasure of watching throughout the week. I started scrapbooking about 20 years ago and card making soon after that. Nothing relaxes me more than spending time in my scrap room looking back on the fun memories and documenting them. My scrappy style is clean and simple and I love to use sketches as a starting point. You can find me at my blog - My Happy Life. I would love for you to stop by!
Hello, everyone.  My name is Kaoru Inoue. I live in japan with my husband and  two children(7 and 5 year old).  I started scrapbooking in 2012.  There was a period of time apart from scrapbooking for a while, but when I met with sketches, scrapbooking became more fun.   Scrapbooking is also time for healing as well as time for memorizing.
Mandy
My name is Mandy, I’m 39 years old and live together with my partner in Dresden, Germany. In June 2014 I started my discovery & adventure of the whole world of scrapbooking, project life, mixed-media etc. – so all creative things with papers, punching & stamping.  I love to try different materials & techniques and my style is still under development… but I like it if the colors are bright and the things have a fresh look. For this I would currently describe my scrapbooking style as clean, layered & full of colors. Some of my favorite items are hand stitching, die cuts and stamps… my absolutely favorite elements are little gold highlights here and there as well as flowers & butterflies, respectively...  I am ecstatic to be joining the Let’s get Sketchy design team…  I hope you will find some inspiration in my work using the amazing Let’s get Sketchy sketches!

You will find me here:
