Introducing December's Guest Designer!!

 Hello, everyone! Happy Saturday to you all! I do hope that you are having a good weekend.

I can't believe that it is already time to introduce our last guest designer for 2021! Please help us welcome the talented Vivi:

December GDT - Vivi


I`m Vivi Casale and I`m so happy to be Guest Designer this month! Thank you for the opportunity!
I`m happily married and live in Sao Paulo, Brazil. I work as a Secretary for over 35 years and have been crafting for over 10 years now.
In my spare time, I love to play in my craft room with my craft supplies or just sit there to create a digital scrapbooking page (this is my new addiction)!  Besides crafting my other passions are books (especially novels), purple color, and traveling around the world!

You can see more of Vivi's beautiful work on her blog - Handmade by Vivi Casale.

Welcome, Vivi! We look forward to seeing your beautiful layouts all month long!

Tomorrow we will be back with a new theme and a new set of challenges to finish out 2021!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Have a great day!

Introducing our November Guest Designer!!

Hello and Happy Saturday! I hope that your weekend is off to a good start.

It is already time to introduce our next talented guest designer for November. We are so excited to have Marushka joining us this month! Here is a little about Marushka:

November GDT - Marushka


My name is Marushka Volkova. I am a Russian patchwork and quilting designer with a passion for making a scrapbook. I live by the Sea of Japan with my husband and our beloved fur baby, cat Musya. Sewing and scrapbooking are my current obsession, but you will also find me taking photographs, reading, decorating, planting, and hanging out with my family and friends. I love taking pictures of my daily life and then making pages with the photos.
I always have a bunch of photos at hand that I am ready to turn into new scrapbook pages. 
I believe in the magic power of handmade and share my hobbies on Instagram @marushkavolkova and on my blog www.marushkavolkova.blogspot.com.

Welcome, Marushka! We are thrilled that you are joining us this month!

We will be back tomorrow with a new theme and a new set of challenges so be sure to stop back by!
