                                                  Stacy Cohen

I live in Los Angeles, California with my loving husband and our two wonderful little daughters. My girls are the inspiration for all my creative projects . . . I call them my little muses.

I work part-time as a health insurance agent. It’s the perfect part-time career because my hours are flexible and I have plenty of time to spend with my family with enough extra time for scrapping.

I started scrapbooking in September of 2004 and I have been hooked ever since. Scrapbooking is my hobby, passion and creative outlet. I always say, “It’s cheaper than therapy!” I’m a very slow scrapper, often spending several nights on one layout. I love to fuss over all the little details and get everything just right. I would define my scrapping style as romantic with a touch of shabby chic, and my pages just don’t feel complete without a flower (or two, or three or four). My work has been published in Creating Keepsakes, Scrapbooks Etc., Scrapbook Trends, Memory Makers, Somerset Memories, Cards, Simply Handmade, Scrapbook Inspirations, and Scrapbooking m.m. I am currently on the design teams for Creating Keepsakes Magazine and Prima. You can visit my blog at www.stacycohen.blogspot.com.

 She used packaging from three different packs of Prima flowers.  She used one of them as the photo mat.  With the other cardboard packaging, I cut scalloped edge strips and then I crocheted along the edge of one of them.



Please give a warm welcome to...
Romy Veul  from Netherlands

My name is Romy, I'm 18 years old and I'm from the Netherlands. I live in a small village only 30 minutes away from Amsterdam, together with my parents, my 16-yo brothers (yes, they're twins!) and four furry friends (our cats and guinea pigs). 

I've recently started studying in Amsterdam. I'm majoring in 'communication- and information sciences' and follow subjects regarding culture and modern media too. The reason I choose this study is the fact that I've always had one big dream. Writing is my passion, my way of expressing my  opinions and feelings. My dream is to be able to write articles, stories and books full time and to work as a journalist. I'm already looking forward to the minor and master in journalism I'd love to follow in my third and fourth year:)  

Besides spending time on my study and on scrapbooking, I love spending time with friends and family, standing behind my camera in an attempt to capture all those special moments life offers and playing badminton. I've always had the feeling I needed some kind of a creative outlet in my life. I used to paint, draw, make my own jewelry or alter baskets and boxes. But always after a while I felt like doing something different and started looking for another hobby. However, since the very first moment I found a sheet of scrapbook paper, I knew this hobby would never bore:) I've been scrapbooking for almost 5 years now and love everything this hobby offers me! By scrapping my photos, I can record the stories behind them, but it also enables me to relax after a busy day at the University in a creative way. 
I do both cards and layouts and I think you could best describe my style as layered and detailed with a hint of shabby chic. I love to layer papers and embellishments to create dimension on my pages. Both layouts and cards usually take me quite some time to make, but I don't mind about that: I love the whole creative process!

I feel so very honoured to be asked by Cynthia to join this wonderful team. Not only do I feel honoured to be working with so many talented and sweet ladies, but I also can't wait to start playing along with all the fabulous challenges this blog offers! Besides that the idea of this blog is pretty amazing, don't you think? Scrapping for a cause: that sounded so good to me that I could not say anything but 'yes' when Cynthia asked me. I'm very happy and honoured to be part of this wonderful team and site. Thank you so much for everything, gals!
