Chantal Vandeberg from 

  Hi my name is Chantal Vandenberg, I am happily married to Jason and we have 2 totally gorgeous girls – Lucy (8) and Heidi (4).  We all live in sunny Australia.  :)

I have now been scrapbooking for 4 years. I initially began scrapping as a fun way to preserve my family's memories, but now, it's all this and a whole lot more!

I love experimenting with new techniques as well as "thrashing" the trusty faves! I just enjoy the "ride" when creating a layout and, in a nutshell, I would describe my style as colourful, fun and funky!

I have been lucky enough to be published in quite a few different magazines in Australia and worldwide, and I'm thrilled to be involved in several awesome design teams too.  So therefore I am super stoked to be part of the Scrap For Help Team, as well as being extremely honoured!  I am really looking forward to sharing my creations with you all! 

out for publication!!!

Keren Tamir  from CANADA

My name is Keren Tamir and I'm 37 years old. I am a wife to a wonderful husband who is very supportive of my scrapbooking hobby and a mother of two amazing kids; a 10 year old boy and a 5 years old girl. I've been scrapbooking for 7 years and I mainly scrapbook about our family. I love to create and experiment with many different mediums and techniques. I get inspiration everywhere I go. I scrapbook mainly at night when everyone is asleep because I love the inspiration you get when it’s quiet. I love my camera and I’m always taking many pictures everywhere I go.
I believe my style is shabby chic vintage with a hint of whimsy. I love designing with flowers, butterflies, doilies and lace. I scrapbook mainly layouts however I do love making mini-albums and just recently I began making different altered projects. Every once in a while I like getting a little grungy and distressing my pages with many paints, mists and inks. My style is always evolving and that’s one of the things I love about this hobby.
One of the main reasons why I started scrapbooking was to preserve memories and photos for my children and grandchildren. However in this past year, I’ve started to enjoy another aspect of scrapbooking. I love the artistic outlet that it gives me. It has become an obsession, a healthy addiction which helps me relax in life. I love it so much and I hope to scrapbook for many years to come!!
I’m very happy and honoured to be a part of the Scrap for Help design team!!

Melinda Thompson from Australia 

Hi my name is Melinda Thompson but most people know me as Min.  I am married to a wonderful husband Brad of 11 years and we have two adorable boys, Riley 4.5 years, Finlay 3 years who are my constant source of inspiration.  We live in a growing country town called Emerald in Central Queensland, Australia and just love the quiet country life.
I started scrapping around the time that Riley was born but only really became ‘serious’ about 2.5 years ago.  Now I am hooked!! Scrapbooking to me is a wonderful combination of creative release and a way of recording our family’s memories.  I love to scrap and journal about the little & insignificant details of my boy’s life.  I do something scrap related nearly everyday, if I’m not scrapping I am thinking about it, browsing through magazines, online galleries and blogs or simply taking photos of my little boys.
My style is always evolving, not sure if I have a style as I love to experiment with new techniques, so it often depends on what I am scrapping or the challenge.  Even though I have two boys, you will always see flowers here and there on my LO’s.  But I do love to use any distressing technique, misting/masking, stitching and non scrapping and handmade embellishments on my LO’s.
I am currently on the Design Team for Manorhouse Creations, a new Australian flower company and on the Creative Team for Stuck?! Sketches.
I am so very honoured to be given this opportunity to be part of the Scrap For Help family.  Looking forward to sharing my creations with you all.  Feel free to visit me at my blog www.minseverydaymoments.blogspot.com.

Sandie Edwards  from Australia 

My name is Sandie, and my partner John and I, live in one of Australia’s many mining districts – Geraldton, Western Australia. I am a Criminologist, though currently a stay at home mother, to our son Jesse who turns 2 in March, 2012.
I originate from an extremely artistic family, which extends through many generations. My Mother is an artist and my brother a musician. For as long as I can remember, I have dabbled creatively in a wide variety of crafts. My paper-craft journey began over a decade ago. However, I only briefly ‘played’ up until the birth of my son. The last 12 months has seen my love of paper-crafts grow to the extent that my ‘hobby’ has over-taken the house, and our Burmese cat, “Malinki” has developed a major paper fetish!
I am completely passionate about this industry, and enjoy "all forms" of paper-craft, with my preferred style leaning more towards vintage/romantic/shabby chic, though not always. The goal I have always set myself is to: stretch the imagination, push boundaries by stepping out of my comfort zone via any means possible, to create something different and unique....and of course be inspiring to others.

Sabrina from Malasia

Hi I’m Sabrina from Malaysia.  Paper crafting has always been my main pastime and I always feel that paper crafting is the cheapest therapy.  I started to become active in card making and creating layouts after blogging about scrapbooking.  But I like to let you know that I enjoy making cards and mini albums the most. I am not exactly into complicated techniques but I do love creating layers as well as incorporating flowers and chipboards in my projects. I also love white and bright colors.  I think by now, I am certain that I will design and play with papers forever and would love to turn my favorite pastime into a business =)

Girls we are so happy to have you with us !!!!
Be very welcome and here are some layouts from our  Design Team
 to inspire you!!!!
