Please remember we close our challenge on the 25th of each month,
which is this Saturday coming up this month, so please get your
layouts or canvases linked if you have them ready or get creating
if you had the intention to participate!
Some of the prizes we have up for grabs this month are
NEVER TO BE REPEATED so this really is your last
chance to win big on those!
This month I am introducing the SATW designers to you in pairs
& we still have 3 more pairs to cover so on with the show!!
Meet Kasia from Poland, now living in Istanbul, Turkey.
Kasia is a great blogger & has a HUGELY inspirational blog -
if you don''t yet follow it you certainly should! It's definitely
my best 2013 discovery so far...
1. How often do you scrapbook?
Whenever I feel like it! It averages about four of five times a week,
depending on what projects I have due in for my Design Teams.
I love diving into my stash whenever the mood strikes!
2. Do you have any other hobbies?
I love cooking and baking! Discovering new recipes always makes
me happy. I also love running, it's my most surprising hobby ever!
And I'm an Instagram addict :)
3. Tell us about the country/area you live in?
It's impossible to describe Istanbul in few short sentences, but I can tell you
it's a really inspiring place to live! We have the beautiful Bosphorus cutting
through the city with ships slowly passing by, amazing historical places,
culture that has developed over centuries from various different
influences & lately more and more trendy and artsy spots in the city!
The food is truly awesome! Traditional Turkish breakfast is amazing!!
You can find out even more about Kasia & Keren by reading our Design
Team tab at the top of the Scrap Around The World blog HERE.
And here we have Keren - a very well-known & popular
scrapbooker in the online community, known especially
for her gorgeous floral creations!
1. How did you discover scrapbooking?
A friend of mine introduced me to a scrapbooking store close by.
That was ten years ago now!. I went to a few classes & was hooked!!
2. How often do you scrapbook?
I aim to scrapbook every day but don't always manage, although
usually I scrapbook daily unless I am sick or really busy.
3. How long does it take you to complete a scrapbook page?
It takes me anywhere from 2-4 hours, depending on drying times - sometimes
I have to leave the page until the next day but mostly I finish in one session.
Gosh well I know where I want to visit next for sure!
Istanbul!! Sounds incredible!!!
And I'm with Keren on the times...same with me, it takes me around 3 hours
to complete a layout - I can do it in less but I don't enjoy rushing the process!
How about you? Are you into scrapbooking for the art therapy or more
interested in getting another layout done for the album? I know that
time is a huge consideration for most of us but I've realised I'm NEVER
going to be able to scrapbook EVERY photo & finally accepted that :)
