It's Monday and that means it's time for a NEW Featured Designer!!
My name is Mel and I live in Durban, South Africa. I live with my fiance, Damien, a photographer and my 10 year old daughter Savannah.
I love designing anything bright and colourful. It is so much fun to watch the trends in Scrapland come and go. At this stage I am very fond of plastic pockets, paint splats, swirls and beads. I find that colours and unique elements are what I am drawn to when I scrap and I am trying my best to keep my layouts minimal, but I think it is more of an art than what people think.
I also started teaching digital scrapbooking in Durban, it is really awesome to share this wonderful hobby with new enthusiasts. I use the My Memories Suite software to teach scrapbooking to beginners as I find it is really the easiest software to start with. I am very passionate about good photos and I try to teach my students a little about photography as well.
I love watching movies and doccies and of course series. Recently we saw "Elysium" and I was very proud of former South African director Neil Blomkamp's work!
I will have a 40% sale off for the week and please stop by my blog to pick up some freebies! I make a little add on freebie with all my kits. I will also run a competition this week on my Facebook page, one lucky commentor can win a $50 coupon to my store!
Keep the scrapping love going! :)
