I am Delaina Burns and  I have been an avid scrapbooker since 2006.  I have been blessed with many wonderful design team positions, publications, and teaching opportunities over the years. I am excited and honored to join Scrapberry's Design Team. It's going to be an awesome year!

My name is Keren Tamir and I live in Canada. I am a wife to a wonderful husband who is very supportive of my art and a mother of two amazing kids; a 14 year old boy and an 8 year old girl. I’ve been scrapbooking for 11 years and I mainly scrapbook about my family.
I love to create and experiment with many different mediums and techniques. My style is always evolving and that’s one of the things I love about this art.
One of the main reasons I started scrapbooking was to preserve memories and photos for my children. However over the couple of years, I’ve started to enjoy another aspect of scrapbooking. I love the artistic outlet that it gives me. I love to create and I’m passionate about what I do.
I’m delighted to join Scrapberrys on this new adventure.

My name is Melissa Phillips and I am so excited to be part of the Scrapberry's Design Team. I love all things paper-crafting related, especially cards and gift packaging. My style is very feminine and I love shabby chic, vintage, and homespun. I am a mom to a darling, blue-eyed 12-year old girl, and a wife to a hard-working, sweet, and supportive farm boy from Souther Nevada. I look forward to sharing my works of art with you as I serve with the other members of the Scrapberry's Design Team.

I am Olga Kolov, the wife of a wonderful man, that honored my passion and mom of 2 creative boys, aged 3 and 8, that honored my scrapbooking staff.  Our family lives in wonderful small town Oldenburg in north Germany, near to Bremen. We have a house with a cat ;)
As designer, I am in love with shabby chic, vintage style and mixed media. I make cards, canvas and altered art.

My name is Raquel, though I’m known as Tati Scrap in the craft´s world. The name "Tati" is in memory to my lovest dog Tati....she died in 2013, the year I started to be a crafter, and it is my tribute to her. I´m 40 years old, I was born in Cádiz City, Spain, where the weather is always warm and sunny! I'm a nurse of my profession.
When I discovered the scrapbooking in June of 2013, it challenges me...  and I do not need nothing else that my nurse scissors and many ideas in my mind. I am honoured to have been a part of the awesome Scrapberry´s Design Team this year...  it is a dream !!

Hello, I'm Terhi Koskinen from Finland. Scrapbooking is more than a hobby for me, it's a lifestyle - it starts with photograph session and ends when I get my creation where I wanted. And then it starts again. My style is modern, fresh and simple, and my creations have always lots of layers with different medias, matching colors, straight lines and touch of something shiny. Always lots of textures and something soft too, like my favorite thing thread.
I get my inspiration from pictures I take during the days, in another words from my everyday life: I'm mother for two beautiful daughters, wife for my handsome husband and studious planning assistant in my day time job. In addition to crafting, I horse-ride, so that's one more topic to my creations.

My name is Yasmin Tölche, I'm a Norwegian girl born in 1980. Mom to three awesome boys, Felix, Collin and Finnley. I'm happily married to Kristian and together we live in a small mountain village in Kyrksæterøra, Norway with our Rottweiler, Penny. I'm a stay at home mom, doing postings online for a Norwegian scrapbook store and I do a bit of photography. I started scrapbooking in 2005, discovered the hobby at a friends house and been doing it ever since! I love all paper realated; doing cards, layouts, mini albums and paper projects. I'm a major scrapbook hoarder! Live, love, breathe paper crafts. I'm so excited to be a part of Scrapberry's designteam with such awesome talent! I feel truly blessed. 

Design Team Coordinator:
My name is Romy and I live in a small village in the Netherlands together with my parents, two brothers and our crazy cats. I'm 22 years old and at daytime I'm a University student majoring in Linguistics. At night I'm an avid scrapbooker and cardmaker. I was introduced to scrapbooking almost 9 years ago and haven't looked back ever since. It's a great way to combine my passion for photography, my obsession to document memories and my love for papercrafting. I make lay-outs, cards, tags, mini albums and also altered  items every once in a while. My style is usually layered, romantic and elegant. I feel truly blessed to be the design team coordinator for Scrapberry's and to coordinate this amazingly talented team of artists.

We all can't wait to start inspiring you!
Stay tuned for many more posts on the Scrapberry's blog!
In July all design team members will start to show their work with you on this blog.
