August Introductions

We have two fabulous introductions to make for August.

First, we are so delighted to introduce our
August Guest Designer


Lisa is well known for her amazing handcrafted flowers. She currently designs for Blue Fern Studios and is on the Donna Salazar 2013 Guest Design Team.

"Hi, My name is Lisa, and by profession I am a registered nurse. I am married to my high school sweetheart and we have 2 children who are now successful young adults.  I have been a crafter my whole life. Back in 2005, my son was doing his senior project with his girlfriend (who is now his wife). They were creating a scrapbook of their lives. They elicited my help as I was the crafty one. We took a ride to The Dollar Tree (our local dollar store) that had a section dedicated to scrap booking papers, albums, embellishments, flowers, and we grabbed everything we could find. I knew about the new way of scrap booking, but never gave it any thought until that trip to The Dollar Tree. After helping the kids create their albums, I was curious as to where I could get more "scrapbooking stuff". So I drove to our local Michaels and Joanns craft stores. That is when I became hooked. I sought out the local scrapbook stores and found stuff I didn't even know existed until then. I shopped and shopped and shopped some more. I found Scrapbook.com and saw the kind of scrap booking the artists did. I was amazed at the styles. It just wasn't cut and paste and stickers. It was 3 dimensional, it was gorgeous, and oh so inspiring. So I created a gallery, created my first layout and the rest is history. My style has changed a bit throughout the years, but playing with paper and scissors is still so therapeutic for me. I am honored and excited to be Guest Designing for Scrap That for the month of August."

We are also thrilled to welcome our new ScrapThat! Designer:
Monica Lowrance

I'm so excited to be here!! I'm excited, humbled and honored to be here. I live in Hot Springs National Park, Arkansas. I have a 14 year old son, David and our crazy pug George. It can get super fun crazy. I’ve been scrapping for many years. I fell in love with it. I love creating. As the years have passed I’ve seen so many neat and amazing things. I’ve enjoyed learning and growing.

I have a love for flowers, chippies and beautiful papers. Actually I love all things connected with scrapping! It was so much fun to serve on The Paper Mixing Bowl. I currently serve at Paper Temptress. I’ve been published in Scrap N’ Art Magazine.  I love trying new techniques and colors. I also try a variety of different styles. Mixed Media intrigues me.

I look forward to getting to know you all and working with you. I can’t wait to see your wonderful projects. I am so excited at the chance to work with these kits. They are gorgeous!! Please join me in my next adventure here at Scrap That! 

Feel free to stop by my blog, 
and say hi.

Happy Scrappn!
