Yay, it's time for some BIG news today. We are announcing our brand new 2016/2017 Design Team.
First of all, we would like to thank everyone who applied for our design team call. It was a really tough decision to choose among so many amazing designers, but in the end we managed to do so. So without further ado, these are the 2016/2017 ScrapBerry's designers:
I am a working dentist, mom of 4 grown- ups, grandma of 2 adorable little people and one more on the way and a wife of a retired high police officer. I came back to crafting about 7 years ago when I became an empty nester and since then I became a part of this industry. Throughout the last five years I have designed for more than 40 different manufacturers. I have had publications in magazines all over the world and made a few covers of different magazines too. Since last year I am a CHA design section member as well. As I was born in Ukraine and immigrated to Israel in my teens, Russian is my mother tongue, Hebrew is a language that I use daily and English is my third language and I just hope that I am not going to make you laugh from my mistakes here and there. I am thrilled to make this team and this is a dream that just came true!
Aida Domisiewicz aka Ayeeda
I am a Polish scrapbooker, mixed media artist, designer, teacher and owner of 13 arts company. My biggest passion is creating with mediums, I love to experiment and search for original effects. I make mostly layouts, canvases, tags and cards, but I also love to create on bigger surfaces and alter home decorations. My works are recognizable as a bit messy, reach in mediums and textures, layers and details.
I just love to create, and I am lucky that my passion became also my fulltime job, as I own 13 arts brand with products for scrapbookers with mixed media style. I have been a designer and guest designer for many designs teams in the past and I still design and cooperate with stores, kit clubs and challenge sites all over the world. I am happy to join Scrapberry’s Design Team as I love their products and often use them during my classes.
Denise van Deventer
I started scrapbooking a number of years ago, but only really started seriously scrapping after my son was born, about 8 years ago. I am a South African, a devoted mother, a giving wife and a happy creator. I am a very happy scrapper and love creating layouts, as well as cards and altered projects. I am not sure if I have a particular style, probably somewhere between classic and shabby chic, but recently I have also done quite modern and I love mixed media pages as well. I love chipboard & embellishments and I am always keen to trying new things.
I am currently on the DT at BoBunny and I am also author and DT at Scrap Africa and DT at Berry71Bleu.
I am a very versatile scrapper and I create altered projects, cards and pages. I love anything paper and love trying my hand at a new idea. I think that is why papercrafting is such a passion for me, because it is ever evolving with new papers, new tools and new crazes! So whether it’s layouts, cards, mini albums, tags or altered projects, I enjoy them all and would be happy to create any of these.
I am delighted to be joining ScrapBerry's and I am so thankful for this wonderful opportunity.
You can find my blog here and I would love it if you popped over & said HI!
My name is Anna Zaprzelska. I live in Poland with my family (my husband and one wonderful son).
I discovered scrapbooking in 2009, but did not scrap as consistently as now and never imagined that scrapbooking would become a passion, or that I would have a craft corner in my home dedicated to the hobby...
Now, every little things in my life are just an other reason to create. And, of course, my family has always been a great source of inspiration for me.
My style? Hmmmmm…. Layers, flowers and a lot of hand-cut elements:-) I like bright and warm colours, romantic design, flowers and embellishments.
I love to prepare home decorations, cards and scraps and use scrapbooking papers and other products to my other hobby, which is decoupage.
Maybe I’m a little shabby girl with a touch of vintage? I think so ;-)

Hi, my name is Solange Marques. I live in South of Brazil and I'm in love with scrapbooking since 2004. I have been married to John for over 32 years and we have five children and two grandchildren. They are always present in my creations.
I graduated in Architecture and Fine Arts (perhaps that explains my huge passion for paint and their constant presence in my projects. I worked in a bank as a jewelry appraiser for 27 years until last month and today I am retired and I can now create fulltime.
In scrapbook rojects I love mixing techniques, mainly involving paints and textures (watercolor, acrylic paint, modeling paste and a lot of mediums). I consider myself a mixed media artist and I love the artsy style!
My name is Djamila Khiter, I'm 39 years old. I live in the north of France, close to Lille.
I'm the happy mother of 8 chidren: 4 girls and 4 guys! Can you imagine? I love every day ;)
I love crafting: sewing, embroidering, knitting. But since some years I'm crazy about scrapbooking!
I have an eclectic style with some bias toward mixed media and romantic style.
I love sharing and creating process videos.
I'm very proud to become a designer for Scrapberry's and can't wait to create with their products.
You can see my work on my blog.
Hello! My name is Lydia Guijt and I am so excited to be part of this amazing Design Team.
I live in Houston Texas with my husband Peter of 25 years and my 2 wonderful grown-up kids.
I’ve been a scrapper for almost 10 years now but have always been crafty.
I don’t think I have a specific style. I try to let the paper speak to me and go from there.
Life is an adventure and deserves to be put on a scrapbook page. Can’t wait to share them with you!
Hello! I'm Nicole and I'm from Canada's beautiful East coast. I share my life and home with my boyfriend of 10 years, Yves, and our fur baby, Sugar the cat. I often sing in the shower and I have a quirky sense of humour. I have always had an artistic side: drawing, writing poetry and trying on different crafts. I work at a regular office job and can't wait to get home every day to my studio! I started scrapbooking in 2004 and have been hooked since. I create mostly layouts, both single and double, as well as cards and canvases. I also make the occasional tag and altered object. I am loving mixed media more and more. My overall style is shabby chic with lots of flowers! I also love to get my hands dirty with different mediums like gesso, molding paste, mists and paints.
Rhonda van Ginkel
Crafty greetings to you from the United States. My name is Rhonda Van Ginkel and I live in the beautiful Twin Cities area in the state of MN. I am a loving wife to my husband Chuck, and a mom to our two beautiful young boys ages 8 and 7. My wonderful paper crafting journey began back in April of 2009 and haven't looked back.
I have always been drawn to creative arts whether it be drawing, painting, photography, sewing, quilting, writing or basically anything that is hands on. With the addition of mixed media products in recent years it is a constant learning, growing and evolving process as a designer.
What is my style? Classic, attention to trends and details but with an addition of my own twists! I adore anything that embraces a bit of imperfection and creates comfortable whimsy.
I am so very excited to join the ScrapBerry's Design Team! I have admired their beautiful vintage designs for quite some time.
I’m Tracey Sabella living in the USA in rural Ohio with my wonderful husband, Gary. Our lives are centered around faith and family. We are blessed with four adult children. Two are married, and we recently learned we will be grandparents for the first time. I’ve had a passion for creating for as long as I can remember and started scrapbooking in 2007 when our church started a monthly scrapbook night. I enjoy all kinds of paper crafting and create in a variety of mixed media styles from grungy masculine to more delicate feminine pieces. I’m honored and excited to be among the talented designers sharing Scrapberry projects with you.
