OUR NEW DESIGNERS! Jan 2014 - June2014

I am so excited to share who we have to inspire us over the next 6 months. These designers will work with either our Main Cake kit or Cupcake kit each month. Plus they will have a play with our exclusive Cherry Flair and Wood Veneer too :) 

Firstly, here is a little about me ...

My name is Raquel Bowman and I am mum to Charlotte who is 14 months and wife to Clint. I am a primary school teacher by day and kit club organiser by night :) 

I have been scrapping for around ten years now and feel I have finally 'found' my style. I'm a lover of layers and clusters and love adding little details while still maintaining white space and a cleanliness to my layouts. My favourite brands are anything that comes under the American Crafts banner; Studio Calico, Crate Paper, American Crafts (Dear Lizzy and Amy Tan). 

I have recently been on the design team for Jot Magazine, but have just been named one of the ten Scrapbooking Memories Masters in an Australian magazine, which is quite an honour that I am still pinching myself about.

I have been published in quite a number of Magazines, both in the UK, France, US and Australia. You can see my publication details and my layouts on my blog


Returning for another term with us is the lovely Ebony :)

I am a wife and mother who loves to scrap and experiment with a camera. I started scrapbooking 10 years ago and was addicted straight away. I love the freedom that scrappin' gives me to create and tell our stories. And I have met the most beautiful people through this craft. I also love dabbling in mixed media.

And here are our new designers which I am so excited to share with you all!

I live in the Huon Valley in southern Tasmania with my partner Mark and our two teenage girls Rhiannon and Jem. I’ve been scrapping and making cards for about 6 years and also enjoy art journaling and often using these techniques on my scrap pages. My girls are the main inspiration for my pages as well as nature and everyday life. I’m a design team member at Citrus Twist and also an Jenni Bowlin Studio Ambassador.


Hi I’m Lisa and I am a create-a-holic. I’ve been making *stuff* for as long as I can remember. I’ve been papercrafting for approx 10 years, and very quickly found myself teaching and designing for various publications and Design Teams including being named as one of Scrapbooking Memories Masters (that came right out of nowhere!). I’ve enjoyed teaching throughout Australia at large retreats as well as a number of paper craft festivals and shows. The last 12 months has seen me feature on Scrapit TV which airs numerous times throughout the year on 4ME TV. Currently I am lucky enough to be part of the Jot and Etzcetera Teams and I love all that comes with that.


My name is Natalie May. 

I am a 30 something mum to a gorgeous 10 year old daughter, Jessica {otherwise known as Happydaks} and a wife to a very supportive hubby. 

I’m lucky enough to be a full time paper crafter, working in Adelaide's best Scrapbooking shop, Seriously Scrapbooking, teaching around 15 classes a month and designing chipboard for Imaginarium Designs. I’m also an Intermediate Certified Copic Designer and love everything inky & color based. 

I have been a card maker for about 17 years and discovered Scrapbooking late 2006. 
I don’t have a particular style – versatility is my biggest asset … from heritage, simple, sketches and shabby through to mixed media and cardmaking – I like to dabble in it all! I would say my strength is working off sketches and I am heavily influenced by all the amazing talent in this industry. 


I hope that the new APOCD team will provide you with much inspiration over the next 6 months! I can't wait for this team to get started :)
