Meet the Design Team

A Big Welcome to Our First Design Team for 2010
Jan Agnew, a long-time friend of S4L, has been appointed as our Senior Design Team Member / Co-ordinator. Jan has kept us inspired with her beautiful page sketches and probing Questions of the Day for quite some time now and is certainly a familiar face on our forum.

Jan has been scrapping for about five years with her four children and five gorgeous grandchildren often starring in her wonderful layouts. Jan has worked as a School Administrative Manager in a rural NSW primary school for the past 14 years and simply loves her job! She also loves attending scrapbooking crops and retreats and absolutely creams the competition with the amount of pages she can turn out in a weekend.
Here is some of Jan's work:

Lisa Amiet is a new face on our forum this year, but she has bravely jumped into the deep end by accepting the position of Photography Moderator and challenge organiser.

Lisa has been scrapping for the past five years and also enjoys photography, cardmaking and a range of other crafty pursuits. She lives with her husband of 13 years and their two children, Brianna and Riley. Lisa's husband says that there isn't a thing invented that she can't find a way to make alter!

She has found a comfortable "home" at S4L, enjoying the company of other ladies that share similar hobbies and interests and we're sure that she is going to provide all of us with lots of inspiration for our own layouts.
Here are some examples of Lisa's work:

Kirsten Casey is our third and final Design Team Member. Kirsten has been scrapping for the past three and a half years and gets her inspiration from her three beautiful daughters aged six, four and two... they also keep her very busy! Lisa lives with her husband and daughters in Highfields, Queensland and they are excitedly waiting on the completion of their new home.

Kirsten is a self-confessed scrap-addict, saying that it forms a major part of her life. If she is not actually scrapping then she is thinking about it, planning for it or looking at it on the net! How many of us can relate to that?!

Here are a couple of Kirsten's creations:
