New DT Member - Anita MacDonald

Hello There, I am Anita and I am thrilled to be the newest member to be invited onto the Papermaze Design Team. 

I have been crafting in various forms for about 30 years including glass painting, decorating goose, quails and ostrich eggs , making wooden country style  angels, Santa’s and plaques and have really enjoyed playing with paper and sparkly things  for just over 14 years after discovering scrapping through a party plan company. 

I am married to Dale and we have 2 lovely daughters who have always been my main subject for scrapping! I have always loved crafting in one form or another and love photos too, so scrapping ticks all the boxes for me! I don't necessarily scrap 100% acid free,  if I see something I like that is not conventional scrapping stash I will still use it and I love to "throw it all on". 

My pages are anything but flat and I love to have lots of texture and interest on them.  I also find that I have a problem leaving pages *clean*, so you will often find my layouts with inky splats, distressed edges and not much empty space on them!

Scrapping for me is not just a creative outlet but has proven to be a wonderful social pastime too and I have met and made many friends over the years, some of which have become very close to my heart and I love meeting up with some of them at a local monthly crop . 

I am looking forward to being part of the Design Team and seeing the various styles that we all have.

Warmest wishes
Anita xx
