Welcome to the LRR DT!

OK so Im popping by to announce the last two talented ladies that will be joining our Design Team.
These two lovely ladies will be starting with us in March so, please make them feel welcome.
Lets begin with Gina................

Gina Rodgers.

My name is Gina and I live in the Huon Valley, Tasmania with my partner Mark and two daughters Rhiannon and Jemma..I've been scrapping for about 4.5 years now and also love making cards and art journaling. I'd describe my style as a little messy with texture, layering and a bit of white space thrown in! I love trying out new techniques and will often use paint, inks, crayons, recycled items, stitching, hand journaling and stamps on my layouts.

Welcome Gina.

Now lets meet Malinda..........

Malinda Gardener.

I’m mum to Isobel (5), Beatrix (22 months) and Henry (6 months) and wife to an amazing husband, Nathan.
I started scrapping about 3 months after Isobel was born, so about 5 years ago. I like to scrap most days, but with 3 kids, that doesn’t happen most weeks. It’s my ME time, my sanity, my creative outlet. I never knew I was creative until I started scrapping, and I only now believe that I am quite good at what I do, well actually not that I am good at what I do, but that I like what I do. I scrap for me and for my family. I do do a lot of challenges, in fact I would say 95% of my scrapping is for challenges, but that’s because I love the actual challenge of doing challenge IYKWIM.
I am lucky enough to have a study that has a scrap table and scrap box kind of thing that Nath made for me in it. So I can leave my mess out and don’t have to pack things up. I’m a messy scrapper, on the page and on the desk! I hate to put stuff away! My style is quite GRUNGY. Lots of paint, lots of embellishments, buttons, ribbon, tags, flowers, clips.
Obviously my main scrapping subjects are my kids, but I love to scrap about other people as well, especially the relationships they have with each other. I love to journal, even though I hate my handwriting, I try to journal on most pages.
My greatest purchase in the latest 5 years would be my Canon 450D and taking the time to learn how to use it and now how to use PS to edit. It’s amazing how different my photos are and then my LOs.

I’m on the CT at Daring you to Scrap, Beyond the Door and Challenge Heaven. I also run Scrap the Girls and am on the DT at Scrapbooking from Scratch and was previously on the DT at Bonsscraps.
I've been published in Scrapbooking Memories, Scrapbooking Creations and Creating Keepsakes. I was awarded an Honourable Mention in the the Masters 2011.

Welcome Malinda
We are so excited to have these 2 lovely and talented ladies join our team.
Stay tuned for their beautiful creations featuring Lil' Red Rocket products beginning March. TFL x
