NEW CREATIVE TEAM February - July 2013

Please make welcome the NEW LOOK Kraft It Up Design Team for February - July 2013.

We have some amazing ladies for this term and from the work that has started flowing in it is going to be another great year here at Kraft It Up!!!

Please make welcome....  


My name is Carolina, Im still in my 20`s. I were born in Poland, but I have lived most of my life in Norway, where I live with my beautiful son and boyfriend. I have a full time job and two hobbies: Papercraft and growing vegetables.
I have always made something more out of my photo albums, but I didnt discover "the real" scrapbooking before 2005. I have had some timeouts where I Havent created anything since then, but I know I will never give this up, I simply love everything about it.
I love to work with kraft, and especially with bright colors, like this months challenge. The picture is of my son and my mother, and it just shows how crazy they (read: we) get sometimes. I`ve had lot of fun making it.


Hi! My name is Sanna Lippert and I have been living close to Vienna, Austria for the past 14 years now with my half Greek, half Austrian husband and two boys aged 12 and 9. 
I´m originally from Finland. I have been a paper lover since I was a very little girl. I used to draw and do crafting for hours and hours. All my drawers were full of drawings and other "creations". After my son´s were born I wanted to create baby albums for them and then discovered the term scrapbooking for me and I have been addicted ever since. 
I had been creating my photo albums before that already, just didn´t know that it was called scrapbooking. I mainly do layouts in different sizes but also like to make cards and minibooks. 
When I´m not scrapbooking, I´m either working at my day job or weaving rugs, socks or something else. Other than that I love to take photos – no way I´m going to be able to scrap all of them in my lifetime :). My recent passion has been decorating our new house, gardening and cooking. I cannot image life without being creative. I usually like creating laoyuts with white space on them. Black pen, small embellishments, stamps and mists are also a constant companion. 
My pages are either totally colorful or in natural colors. No particular style I like most, I usually go with my gut feeling and since I have two boys, you will not find that many flowers on my layouts. I love this hobby and love trying out new products and techniques. There´s so much to discover and to learn with inspiration everywhere!


"Hello, my name is Paula Perry & I've been a huge fan of the 'KIU Challenge Blog' since it's beginning...
I simply love working with kraft! Scrapping has been a part of my life since about 2003 & I believe it will always be. My inspiration comes mainly from my family, I'm blessed with a very accepting husband & 3 gorgeous children. 
I love photography & documenting all parts of our life...the good, bad & the wonderful! 
It's amazing to see how much my style has changed & developed over the years...haha for that, I'm very thankful ;) 
My wish is to create more time to really experiment with various products. 
I love working with mists, masks & stamping, though who can go past all the gorgeous patterned papers out there!"


Hi, my name is Raquel, I'm 28, a primary school teacher and I live in Geelong, Victoria. I have a gorgeous hubby and have recently had a little baby girl, named Charlotte, in October.

I LOVE to scrap and my favourite part about scrapping is not only the gorgeous products but also the fantastic online community that I have found since I started scrapping. My love of Scrapbooking has also inspired me to start my own Kit Club 'A Piece of Cake Designs'. 

Currently I design for the Scrapbook Magazine in the UK. I have been published in Scrapbook Magazine, Scrapbook Creations, Scrapbooking Memories, Creating Keepsakes (aussie edition), Somerset Memories and Entreartists Magazine (France). I really enjoy joining in on the challenges on Scrapbooking Challenge blog sites. 

My favourite things to scrap are the things that mean the most to me – those special people in my life who I adore! My boy, my friends, my family and more recently my little girl, feature the most on my pages. I don’t quite have a word to define my style, however, I love coordinating different brands and mixing and creating my own colour combinations - and layering and clustering seems to feature on pretty much all of my pages too.


Originally from South Africa, my hubby and I moved to Brisbane, from London in 2008. With a background in Graphic Design, I recently discovered the world of Scrapbooking. I have two little ones, aged 6 and 2, whose crazy everyday antics, provide most of my scrapping inspiration! I try to convey a sense of fun in my layouts and am currently quite enjoying a bit of hidden journaling.

I love the smell of paper and coffee and colour and typography, photography and good times shared with friends. 

I enjoy participating in challenges and have had a couple of my layouts featured on Craft Gossip and Heidi Swapp's Facebook page. I also upload examples of my work to 2Peas, where I was lucky enough to recently have one of my layouts, 'Slurpee Tongue' , highlighted as a Featured Project! Here is the link to my member gallery:

I have a few layouts as well as a challenge waiting for publication in Scrapbooking Memories magazine and was recently given the opportunity to be on the Once Upon a Sketch Design Team. I am also working on posting to Instagram and Pinterest a bit more.


My name is Ann-Christin, but most of my scrapping friends just call me Lula:)

Norway is my home, born, raised, found love, got married, had two kids and are HAPPY! When I first started scrapping back in 2007, I almost just did kraft. And then I found this cool blog and you have so many different challenges! 
I love how the kraft brings out the colors and the pictures at the same time. I am a kindergartenteacher and i just think my job is the best! To work with children and give them everythin that I value (humor, stability, strenght, honesty and so much more) means the world to me;) 
Most of all its my daughter Luna and my son Ludvik who I use in my layouts, but friends/family is also fun to scrap! I am very outgoing, love to work in a team and laugh alot! 



 Hi there, my name is HEATHER JACOB.
Firstly I am so honoured and delighted to be included in the Kraft It Up team for 2013
 I am happily married to my wonderful, supportive “soul mate” Baden. My Family feature throughout my work and there is nothing more important to me than my family.
I discovered scrapbooking in 2003 and to me this craft is the perfect combination of art, photography, beautiful paper, and glorious words.
I especially love to choose some elements, cast a spell and see what happens, to create a dream and follow it through. Subtle shadows, light and color are all ingredients for casting the spell. I am in harmony with my garden and its inhabitants, connecting with the beauty that surrounds me. For me it is all-consuming, inspiring and a natural expression of my inner self, which I love to weave into my works.
I am inspired by colour and texture … I love to include stitching, chipboard, journaling, muslin, fabrics, metal elements, inking, masking and texture paste.
Off the page projects and altered art are a fave of mine. I see my style as “CLASSIC” with layering and attention to detail…I tend to lean toward monochromatic themes with a little shabby chic/grunge thrown in .. I feel very lucky to be on a number of design teams and I have work published in Scrapbooking Memories, Scrapbook Creations, Australian Scrapbook Ideas.
Warm hugz from Heather x
