April guest designer... Tracey!



 Hi I am Jodi, Owner/Designer at Corbett Creations Wood Veneers.  My laser cutting business is currently based in Canberra and has been something I have been working on for a little while now.  It came about because I would be constantly frustrated that I couldn't find the perfect title or embellishment to finish off layouts, projects or gifts.  I would then spend far too long trying to create the perfect embellishment and would sometimes rope my husband in to help me with all this cool tools in the man shed!  He has a love for wood also and together we purchased our laser.  I love being able to design and cut the perfect piece for someone to finish telling their story - the perfect title, the hard to find themed embellishment, a custom piece for the home or a meaningful gift, really makes me feel so happy because I know that their search is over and they have the perfect piece that they desired.  I love to create in wood, chipboard, cardstock, paper and acrylic with so many different
I can create so many embellishments and titles - the possibilities are endless.


Please welcome Tracey as our single page guest designer this month!

Hi, I’m Tracey from Melbourne, Australia and I am a mother , scrapbooker and world traveller.
 
I have been scrapping for about 14 years and my 18 year old son was my greatest source of inspiration until he became photo phobic about 4 years ago.   Now no-one is safe!   

As a former fitter & turner familiar with technical drawings, when I first started scrapping I favoured a very graphic style and struggled to even place my photo on an angel.   My style has evolved and I’m a big fan of mixed media.   It’s still rare though that I place my photo on an angle! 
My son grew his hair for 3 years before chopping it off and donating it to Variety Australia to be made into wigs for kids with cancer.   I’ve flipped the sketch to suit my photos and replaced 1 photo with an envelope to contain a braid of hair.

Please welcome our double page guest this month, Donna!


Hello! My name is Donna Broussard and I am from Louisiana. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 42 years. We have one son and he has blessed us with 3 grandsons. These boys are the focus of most of my scrapbooking pages. I have been scrapbooking for 12 years and I am very passionate about it. Some of my favorite things to do are attend crops, do challenges, make mini albums, and make various paper crafts. Doing various challenges has forced me to think out of the box and to try techniques and products that I would never do on my own. Please stop by my blog (http://retiree3.blogspot.com/ ) and see more of my work. I would like to thank Stick It Down for featuring me this month.


I really enjoyed working with this sketch. First, I embossed it with my Creatopia machine and then I came over each shape with a pearl pen and bling. My title was made with my Cameo. Including flowers on my layout was fun since that is one of my favorite embellishments. This sketch had so many possibilities.
