3 New DT Members!

I am thrilled to announce that we are adding 3 new DT members to the Scrap That! family. Please help me welcome (drum roll)...

Tina Rutledge - We loved what she created with the April and May kits and we couldn't possibly let her go after her guest spot with us. Her soft romantic style is perfect for our kit club!
Hi Everyone! My name is Tina Rutledge. We have recently moved to the sunny state of Florida. I'm from Chicago, IL. and have lived there all my life, so I'm a city girl at heart. I have been married for 14 years to my wonderful and loving husband and we have 5 children. As a stay at home Mom, they definitely keep me busy, but are my inspiration. There are many things that inspire me and bring out my creativity. That is why I love scrapping! It allows me to challenge myself, bringing out the true expressions of my creative mind, in paper form. I also enjoy the positive energy it evokes.

Robin Shakoor - We adore her work work and a guest spot was not enough - we had to keep her too! Her wonderfully elegant style is a great compliment to our kits.

My name is Robin Shakoor and paper crafting is my passion!  I live in Virginia with my husband, daughter, one spoiled puppy and three birds.  I am a Human Resources Manager by day and crafter by night.  I have been an avid paper crafting enthusiast since February, 2008.  While I enjoy all design styles, I would have to say that elegant, romantic and vintage are my favorites.   I enjoy incorporating a blend of these three styles into my projects, creating a visual experience for my readers.  I believe that crafting is a shared experience for both me and those who view my work.  Just knowing that I am teaching others through tips, tricks and tutorials on my blog brings me joy.  I like to encourage others to step out and try new things.  I believe that crafting is a personal journey and the roads we take along the way are different and special.

and last but not least...

Shona Keehn - She is a fantastic, supportive community member and a wonderful designer. The superb deep richness to her layouts will be a great style addition to the team.

My name is Shona Keehn and I am from British Columbia, Canada. I have 3 children and a wonderful husband of 26 years. He is very supportive with my scrapping addiction. I have been scrapping for many years but have just found my scrappy style in the last year, Shabby Chic with a bit of vintage, and it is definitely something that I change up lots. I love to try new techniques and make embellishments. One of my favourites is to work with a sketch, either for layouts or cards. I love how so many artists can be so different from one sketch. I get so much inspiration from everyone in the scrapping world and I hope that you can get some from me. 

Shona will not only be designing with the kits, she will also assume the role of Design Team Coordinator. As most of you know, I have been the DT and Kit Coordinator since the start of Scrap That! kits. The position has grown to the point that it requires two people to effectively manage all the responsibilities. I will continue in the research and product selection role as well as be an active design team member. I now pass the DT Coordinator "torch" to Shona and am confident she will be an amazing team leader.
