of weeks while reviewing the design team submissions! I wish we could

I am excited to introduce the new FotoBella Design Team!
Hi! My name is Apryl Holland. I am blessed with raising a beautiful
family and enjoying the hustle and bustle of all that life brings. I
live in a friendly beach town in Southern California with my husband,
two children, and cute little min pin Daisy Duke.
I began scrapbooking 15 years ago and I can say I love it! My paradise
is escaping to my scrapbook room (the woman cove) in the attic, putting
on a good movie on Netflix and crafting to my heart's content. I also
enjoy cooking, baking, being silly with my kids, and just being
My name is KimberlyRae, I live in Eastern Washington with my husband
and two boys. I enjoy spending time with my family, boating,
gardening, sewing, travel, and Art of Any kind!
Art is my passion-I'm challenged by anything that can be created with
my hands! I have made many digital/hybrid layouts
over the years and my work has been published in many magazines. I also
make paper jewelry from paper beads and stamps. I've sewn for many
years and used to design children's clothing. Even though
I've only been creating with paper for a couple of years I'm totally
addicted and feel at home with paper, fabric, fiber, wire and glue! I'm
always up for new and exciting challenges and use any new crafty tool I
can get my hands on to create with!
I am a veteran to the scrapbooking world. I have been scrapbooking and
papercrafting for almost 17 years.
Currently, I am an independent class instructor specializing in
scrapbooking, paper crafting, mixed media and altered arts. I was
altered arts before mixed media became a catch phrase in the industry
:) I have worked at several scrapbook stores, designed for scrapbook
companies and taught classes for almost 10 years.
As I have fallen into a specific style, I have figured out who I am as
an "artist" and love to share my passion with others.
My name is Lisa Wilkinson. I am a mommy to 6. A wife to the love
of my life. A home schooler, a creative gal who finds joy in creating
everyday, whether it be a craft or activity for my children, something
to add a
little spice to our home or a cherished layout for our scrapbooks that
meaningful and lasting.
I am always creating something and that brings me such
joy! I have been scrapbooking for over a dozen years and if you read my
you will see my style has slowly evolved into what it is now...
bumpy, misty, sewed on, with a lot of white space. It is
"organized-messy". I am currently loving... layers
stories and heart.
Sarinda and Jeri!
Hi, my name is Sarinda Jones. I live in Salt Lake City with my husband
and son. I'm an artsy scrapper, art journaler, mixed-media artist,
jeweler and glass artist. I Love it. I try to capture that moment in my
life through art. I enjoy the whole process of making art. From the
beginning till the end. I like to use different techniques. Everything
is spontaneous and I never know what I will get at the end, trusting
the process from the start. In my opinion this is the most exiting part
of making an art. I can describe my style as mixing of different
styles. I don't want to limit myself to the one style. Face the
brilliance of your most wonderful creations and dwell on your dreams. I
believe in teaching, the sharing of ideas and the playfulness of
creating. I excited to be apart of this amazing team.
Originally from Utah, I moved to LA and graduated from FIDM with a
degree in Product Development. I then went on to work in the apparel
industry. I became a statistic of the economy downshift and was laid
off. So to keep my sanity in my free time I became intrigued with
projects that included paper, beads and basically anything I had laying
around the house. I love to create cards, gift tags, gift baskets as
well as jewelry and my own custom wall decor. I love to challenge
myself with out of the ordinary projects and create one of a kind
pieces that I either sell or use myself. I love doing anything creative
and unique, and I am constantly researching what is new and creative to
get inspiration for a new creation of my own.
