Please welcome the new members of our design team!

Our new smash ladies!

My name is Billie-Jean Beveridge and I am from sunny Queensland, Australia. I am a proud mum to two little girls, Dakotah and Amber, and am currently undergoing my Bachelor of Nursing. I began scrapping around 10 years ago after the birth of my eldest and recently stumbled across the world of Smash booking. Smash booking instantly appealed to me as it has become a place to stick all those extra things that i just cannot get into my regular scrap book pages plus it is a little smaller than the usual 12x12 i am use to and i love the challenge. I scrap as often as I can and I like to experiment with different styles and techniques, ultimately so long as I get to make a mess and create I am happy. My favourite things to use when I scrap, right now, would be my distressing tool, my Paints/Glimmermists/Inks, Texture Paste and lastly my 3D tape, everything else is a bonus. 

My name is Joan Liddle. I live in northeastern Ohio with my husband and our dog, a chihuahua named Chiquita. I retired in July after teaching for 35 years. Our daughter got married last June; it was a beautiful wedding which I am now Smashing!

I love to scrapbook, make cards, do mixed media pieces, ATC's, art journals and make tags!! I also love using rubber stamps & stencils. My newest obsessions are using a Gelli plate to make prints, doing Project Life and Smashbooking.
I have been papercrafting for about 10 years, have been on many design teams & also have been published quite a few times.
I am delighted to be a member of the Life in Details design team. I look forward to using the challenges in my Smash books.

And the new ladies to the Project Life team!


My name is Louise. I'm 27 years old and live in Denmark. I'm married with the love of my life and together we have two children.
I have been a scrapper for nearly two years and a Project Life'er for a year. I love the Project Life concept - the way you documenting your everyday and combine it with scrap.

My name is Marisol Benitez. In the scrapping world I'm also known as MariClaudi.
I married my high school sweetheart 20 years ago and now we have 5 kids! I work full time as a School Social Worker.  I love musicals, reading, gardening. I have been playing with pretty paper and glue since 1997.  In 2009, I discovered Project Life. Since then Pocket Style scrapping has become my preferred choice for documenting our family memories.  

Amanda is a Jesus loving, coffee drinking, Kentucky girl living in Ohio. She is married to her best friend and is called "Mom" to her two sweet girls, Adeline and Eleanor. By day she is a 2nd grade teacher but by night you can find her in her studio putting photos and words together to tell her life story. She discovered Project Life in 2011 and instantly knew it was the perfect way to document the everyday moments. Although her style and techniques have changed, her love and passion for the project keeps her chugging away week (or weeks) by week.  You can find her blogging away at and on YouTube.

January Challenge: Bling it up!

We hope you rang in the new year safely!  Did you get lots of photos to remember the night by?

To celebrate the new year, we are asking you to use bling on your project life or smashbook spread!  

For this challenge, we asked Kelly Greatrex if she would be our guest designer for January.  We are so pleased she agreed to do it!

I'm a thirty-something, married new mum, currently on maternity leave. I work full-time to support my babe, my crafty hobby and my travelling bug. I've been scrapbooking for 5 years, starting after my month long trip to Spain to complete the Camino de Santiago (It's the only album I've ever completed!) As for the travelling...I've been to Europe - London, Paris, and all across Spain (Barcelona, Madrid, Malaga, Mijas, Santiago de Compestella, Segovia & Toledo are the highlights)and to the Dominican Republic and Cuba, all since 2008.

Here is the card Kelly made for her project life album.  It's beautifully blingy!

You can see more of Kelly's work at The Scrap-Happy Traveller and thank you so much for joining us this month!
