Meet Our January Guest Designers

Joining us again, for a second month... Tara Orr!

I fell into scrapbooking in the fall of 2008 while trying to write and design a personalized book for my son's 4th birthday gift. After visiting my first real 'scrapbooking' store I was in awe and completely overwhelmed with the amount of different papers, embellishments and products to choose from. I completed my first layout in November of 2008 and have been addicted ever since.

Scrabooking is an escape for me - my down time. It allows me to combine my love of crafting and photography with my artistic nature. I enjoy each and every second of the creative process involved in taking a layout or project from start to finish.

My design style is constantly changing and I am always looking for new techniques to try. I tend to gravitate towards rustic-vintage/shabby chic with lots of distressing! I am inspired by wonderful photos (of my 3 kids mostly) and awesome patterned papers. I have been fortunate enough to have several of my layouts published and my blog featured a handful of times. I am currently on the design teams for Scrapbook Star, and MyKi and a Staff Member at Scrapbook News and Review Magazine. I am honoured to be working with My Creative Scrapbook this month and look forward to working with their uber talented design team.

And a huge welcome to Angélique Le Roux!

My name is Angélique Le Roux. I'm French and I live in Normandy by the sea, the Channel. I've been married for 13 years to Andre and we have a daughter, Romane, who is 11 years old.

I discovered scrapbooking almost 5 years ago and have been addicted ever since.
My layouts celebrate pieces of my life. They're how I keep memories I may forget, how I tell stories, and how I express my love for my daughter.

I have always enjoyed creating things with my hands; it's a great satisfaction.
I am not locked into any specific style, but I tend to lean toward shabby chic and multi-layered pages. I am so obsessed by papers and I have so many that I would need several lives to use all of them !

I am so excited and honored to be a Guest Designer at My Creative Scrapbook this month! I'm looking forward to discovering what the talented design team creates with the January kits also!
