Meet Our New Design Team!


Hello! Janice and I are so thrilled to share our brand new design team with you! This talented group of creatives will begin sharing their art with you with the launch of our  October 1st challenge!

So without further ado, let me introduce our new members to you (in alphabetical order.)

Hello, my name is Anne Keller. I'm a nearly 29-year-old student and mum of 2 girls and I live in a beautiful town in Germany with my family. I'm a scrapper since 2011. I started with recipes but after the birth of my first daughter I mostly document our family life. I love the creative process, the flow of creating and that I can calm down and refresh my soul while I'm scrapping. Sketches are my favorite way to start a new page. So I'm happy and really excited to be on the Stuck?! Sketches DT for the next 6 months.

Hi, my name is Fiona Johnstone, I live in Sydney with my two children Zane and Lily and one slightly crazy dog named Harry. I have been scrapbooking since Zane was born, almost 12 years. My style has been described as modern, I am photo focused and I love to use patterned papers but also mix it up with mixed media based layouts. It’s all about enjoying being creative for me! I am fortunate to be able to teach a monthly scrapbooking class for All About Scrapbooks (Australia) at their crop days and am a member of the Design Team. I love sketches and am very excited to be a part of the Stuck?! Sketches team!

Hi, I'm Libeeti from Israel. I'm a mother of two teenagers boys and a craft addicted (say, 'we love you Libeeti', as most of you are craft addicted too LOL). I make layouts, mini albums, altered art, mixed media art, notebooks and journaling books, etc. I also love to make vidoes about my creative process and share my tips and hows with others. After a timeoff period from crafting, I'm more than happy to return to this love of mine, and I'm really very exited to join (again) to the Stuck?! Sketches DT.

Hi! I am LIzzy Crust and I have been scrapbooking since 2006. I am Mum of 4 with only 1 at home now with my Husband and I. I enjoy the creative process of making a layout and I love using layers, flowers, mixed media and sketches. I have been on several Design Teams and this has been a great learning curve in trying things I may not have done otherwise, as well as making lovely friends in the online scrapping world. I am really looking forward to creating with the fabulous Stuck?! Sketches and making more new friends!

Hello everyone! My name is Maria and I am so excited to be part of this amazing team! I am originally from Spain, but I've been living in the UK for a bit longer than I want to remember. I do love it here, though. So much so that I became a citizen in 2016! I started scrapbooking in 2013, just a couple of months after my twins were born, and my style has been evolving and changing ever since. I like focusing in the photo(s), title and journalling. I am not a massive embellisher, although sometimes (rarely) I use tons of them in one layout! I started scrapbooking in 8x8 books, and just at the beginning of 2017 I moved to full 12x12 pages. And I am loving the big space! Sketches are great starting points for me and use them as inspiration all the time!

Hi! My name is Megan, or Crafty Meggy in the Scrappy world. I am a mom to 3 wild, wonderful boys and wife to an amazing husband. I am a SAHM and a part time professional photographer, as well as a scrapbooker. I have been scrapbooking for almost 20 years now. I found the YouTube/Online community a few years ago and have blossomed and made so many wonderful friends in the process. I am so excited to be on the Stuck?! Sketches team!

I live in sunny Perth in Western Australia.  I have been married for 16 years and have four children, 3 boys and 1 girl! I am a Registered Nurse and work in a prison as a Mental Health and Addiction Consultant. I am a lover of all things paper but my crafting started with Folk Art painting and quilting.  Photography is also a great passion of mine and there would not be a day that passes where I do not snap a photo! I have been scrapbooking for 10 years now and I would classify my style as contemporary/classic. I am a lover of clean lines, negative space, embellishment clustering, sewing on my layouts and using cut files!

First off I’m so excited to be joining Laura and this team of amazing paper crafters at Stuck?! Sketches! I live in Yellowknife NWT, Canada… yes in Canada’s Arctic! I began scrapbooking about 15 years ago when my son Liam started school. I haven’t been on a Design Team before but I have had a layout (or more) published in every issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine for the past 7 years. I often include Memorabilia on my pages, love using sketches and I would say that most of my pages have a collage look to them… scrapbooking truly is therapeutic for me. I hope to share with you some wonderful experiences and photos of our life “North of 60”!


Online I’m known as seemownay but I’m actually spelled Simone. I am a mom to three boys and due to my husband’s job we moved from Germany to the San Francisco Bay Area two years ago. I have always been crafty in some way or another and rediscovered my love for paper in 2014 when I started Project Life. I then got sucked into the the whole scrapbooking thing in the beginning of 2015 when I created my very first 12 x 12 layout. Even though I love scrapbooking as an art form, I always have to have a story to tell. My style is fun and playful. While I am still learning new techniques, I am always trying to expand my horizon and don’t shy away from trying. Last year I also started planning and journaling in a traveler’s notebook and am currently on the Cocoa Daisy Planner Team.

When I’m not doing fun things with paper, I might be sewing, reading, climbing or cheering for my sons at their sporting events. I also love capturing those little happy moments throughout the day: I could take pictures of the blue sky, pretty flowers or an interesting floor pattern all day long and still find more. Here is where you can find me on social media:

Hi Scrapping friends! My name is Yvette Weber, I live in the United States with my amazing husband of thirty one years, one awesome son (11) and a dog name Titan! Born and grew up in Grenada in the Caribbean, move to the States when I was 15 with my family. I started scrapbooking in 2013 to document our family memories, after my Dad was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. When not scrapbooking you can find me cooking, baking, decorating my home and sometime reading a great book. I love incorporate layers of colorful patterned paper, clusters of embellishments and cut files on my pages! I'm super excited to be joining the Stuck?! Sketches design team and looking forward to sharing my work with you and hopefully inspiring you to create beautiful layouts!!!
