Stacey Young  Australia 
 Hi, my name is Stacey Young and I live on the central east coast of
 Queensland with my hubby of over 10 years and our 3 little boys Cooper - 6.5, 
Kobi - 5 and Mason 2.5.
  I have been scrapbooking for over 9 years now and just love everything about 
this craft!!!   I definitely have a 'style' and love to create pretty things.  I adore colour,
 mixed media, layers and the whole process of creating.  I have been lucky enough
 to be involved in some amazing design team and I really look forward to adding
 2 Crafty to that list.  Thankyou so much for the opportunity to create with such
 beautiful pieces of chipboard."

 Helen Tilbury  South Africa
Hello to all you 2Crafty fans!  I am delighted to be joining the 2Crafty team!!
  My name is Helen Tilbury & I live in Durban, South Africa. I have been 
scrapbooking for 10 years now.  Prior to scrapbooking I had pursued every 
artistic hobby on the planet so everyone thought scrapbooking was another
 one of my “fads!”  Well I have proved them wrong & have no intention of stopping!!

It took me many years to settle on a style but the Mixed Media craze settled all
 that & you can be sure to find some wet medium on every page I create! 
 Inking, stencilling & misting are definitely my thing!!

I also have the honour of creating for several manufacturers, a magazine & a Kit Club.
I have also started my own challenge site, Scrap Around The World.  In between all
 that I have a day job & 4 beautiful children who provide most of my scrapbooking 
fodder (although they are becoming less camera friendly as they get older!!)  
Together we live a wonderful, crazy life I love.

Felicity Wilson  Australia
I have always been a crafty kinda girl, but I guess scrapbooking came about mainly when my first son was born. I scrapped before that, mainly good ole ‘selfies’!!! But now I am into it hook, line and sinker!! I love putting different textures together, colour, reminiscing about a photo...It feels like 50 years since I started scrapping, only problem is I am not that old, lol... Nah, realistically, 7 years, but I really got into after my eldest son’s birth. Sheesh - that's 4 ½ years ago!! Time flies when you’re having fun!! -M style is described as white paper covered in the colours of the rainbow with lots of fibres to make it lumpy and bumpy!! I have a go at Scrapbook pages, art journal, mini albums, cards and project life!!! Variety is the key.. Tee hee

 Ebony van der Starre  Australia
Hi my name is Ebony van der Starre and I live in Warrnambool Victoria
 with my hubby and two children. I have been scrapbooking now for over 
10 years and I love everything about it, from the friends I have made to 
just having a creative release. I don’t know how to describe my scrapping
 style but I love to get messy with paints, pastes, mists and other fun arty
 materials! I LOVE using bright colours and rarely use patterned paper!

I have been very lucky over the years to be involved with many design teams
 and have my work published in various magazines including online ones.
 I am super excited to be creating for 2 Crafty next year!
Debbi Tehrani  USA

Hi, I'm Debbi Tehrani. I'd like to start out by saying how excited and 
honored I am to be a guest designer for 2Cafty.
I live in Frederick, Maryland, USA  with Farzad, my husband of 32 years.
 We have no children, but we have two cats and two bearded dragons.
 One of the beardies accompany me to school, where I teach fifth grade.
I've been scrapping for about a dozen years. I scrap 8 x 8, which is why 
I often include only one photo on my layouts. I love telling stories on my 
pages and using elements that will help to tell my stories. Recently, I have
 been creating pages for friends who have lost loved ones.
I love a scrapbooking challenge, and I've been on a bunch of challenge 
design teams over the years, and was a designer and writer for 
 Scrapbook News & Review. My pages have been published in several ,
magazines, as well as several online publications.
I founded and create for CSI: Color, Stories, Inspiration.
The internet has transformed my hobby from a solitary passion to one that
 I can share with online friends I have made all over the world.

Aida Domisiewicz  Poland
My name is Aida Domisiewicz aka Ayeeda. I think I've always had an
 artistic soul - I used to paint and create ceramics and I always loved 
to make home decorations. Interior design is my passion too. 
Three years ago I discovered scrapbooking and mixed media – and it
 was the love at first sight:) 

12x12 is my favourite space to create, but I also make mixed media
 projects on canvas, tags, cards and altered items. My works are
 recognizable as a bit messy, I can’t create without paints, mists and
acrylic mediums. I like textures and layers and love to feel my projects
 under my fingers.

I just love to create, and I am lucky that my passion has also become
 my full time job. This is a dream come true. Thank you so much for
 inviting me to join 2 Crafty Chipboard as Guest Designer, 
I just love your products!
