Please Welcome a New Design Team Member!

Scrap That! is thrilled to welcome Ivana Camdzic to our Design Team.  A fellow Canadian, Ivana is from Saskatoon, Sakatchewan (say that 10 times really fast!)   
Ivana has a unique style and tremendous passion to bring to the team and we are so pleased to welcome her!  Be sure and stop by her blog:
Hello fellow scrappers! My name is Ivana, and I am scrapbook FANATIC! I have been scrapping since I can remember picking up my first pair of scissors. It was not until 2004 that I started an interest in modern-day scrapbooking in an attempt to find a more creative way to preserve my memories. I fell in love with this art form the moment that I realized I could combine all of my passions (photography, sketching, painting, sewing, etc…) into one fabulous creation!

Shortly after I started scrapbooking, I was offered a position at our local scrapbook store. I worked there part-time while going to university. The workload of school got to be over-bearing and I had to say goodbye to my scrappy job. I think that was the most important thing that could have happened to me during my schooling. I realized just how much scrapbooking really meant to me. So, I obtained my business degree, with a major in accounting, and decided that for now, I would put that on hold, to follow my creative aspirations. 

I went back to work for, design for, and teach classes at our local scrapbook store and I have now been there for almost a full year.  In the first little while, I taught a couple of classes to get the feel of teaching, and before long I was fully in love with the idea! So, I now teach an advance scrapbooking class every month to a bunch of wonderful, and incredibly talented gals! In addition to teaching and working, I create layouts for our other classes and I also create layouts for the store to display.

I find that I go in an out of phases of what I enjoy making...I sometimes create layouts, sometimes I switch it up and make cards, and then other times I choose to alter items. Whichever I may do, I generally stick to the same style. I love the shabby chic, romantic, and delicate look. You will often see me using soft colours and a LOT of texture! My favourite products are things I can make my own. I love using white ANYTHING which I can glimmer, glitter or alter. I love pearls, lace, soft and organic shapes, border punches, and my beloved liquid pearls! My style is very feminine, so I tend to use a lot of flowers and usually stay away from very masculine paper or embellishments. I draw my biggest inspirations from pretty paper, beautifully designed spaces and many other art forms like sculptures, fine china, antique packaging, beautifully decorated cakes, and clothing...just to mention a few! 

I have only recently joined the online scrapbooking community and I love every bit of it! I am absolutely in love with the Scrap That! site and the idea of providing a high-quality, beautifully hand-picked and coordinated kits! I am so honoured and SO happy to have this opportunity to be a part of the INCREDIBLY talented Design Team! I look forward to working with the super friendly DT gals, the GORGEOUS kits, and to making wonderful friends along the way!
