And the last 3 Design Team Members.................

Please welcome..................

I live in a small town in Australia called Tumut. I have lived my whole life basically in this country town and I love the peace and serenity which surrounds us. I am married to my school friend sweetheart Andrew and we share three beautiful daughters- Kayley, Emma and Bridget. I have been scrapping since 2007 and I love a great challenge and enjoy trying different techniques. I do like to use bright and bold colours on my layouts which might make me stand out from the rest-LOL . I love to cut up pp and use a lot of chipboard and embellishments on my layouts.

I am 38 and live in sunny Cairns, Qld, Australia. I've lived here since Sept 2006. I have been married to Ryan since November 2007. He is in the navy, and due to leave in June 2012, and we will then move to our brand new home on the Sunshine Coast. No kids yet, but one very spoilt King Charles called Kimmy.

I began scrapping in January 2008 after getting a heap of wedding photos from the photographer that were 6”x9”, a very unusual size. So I purchase some coloured paper, stickers and an album and started what would become a paper obsession. I was self-taught at first as I didn’t know anyone here who scrapped, but have now made some great friends through this addictive hobby. And also, scrapping would keep me sane when Ryan was away for 3 months at a time.

I am looking forward to being a part of the Scrapjacked team and can’t wait to see what everyone creates.

My name is Jeanenne Gale and I live in a country NSW. I am a full time working mum, happily married to a very patient husband (Troy) and have two beautiful children, Sophie (9) and Harry (3). I have been scrapping on and off for about 7 years and was introduced by to the craft by a friend who did a lot of card making. After losing my mojo and having a big break I have recently rediscovered the joy that scrapbooking brings to me (spurred on by a wonderful friend). For me, scrapbooking is me time! I don’t really have a particular style but I love using different textures as well as splashing around with inks and paints. I also enjoy a good challenge that stretches me to use colours or products that I wouldn’t normally use!!!! I am so thrilled to be part of the Scrap Jacked Design Team!!!!
My blog is House of Scrap

We can't wait to see what all these new Design Team Members create to inspire you all.

Another 2 new Design Team Members..................

Please welcome to the Scrap Jacked Design Team ...........................

Hi! I’m Deb. I started scrapbooking around 1999/2000 after looking through a magazine on scrapbooking and wondering what it was all about. Supplies in the local area, at that time, were a little scarce but I ended up finding a store that had some A4 cardstock and some stickers and I was up and running. As with most of us, I look back on my earlier attempts at scrapbooking and can see how much it all has changed (scrapping styles – my style) but in saying that I still love the memories that my older albums hold. I love the idea that I can have such a great creative outlet for myself and know that in the years to come my family will be able to enjoy the memories that I have kept for them. I love distressing and paint and generally getting messy on my layouts but I do love the pretties as well...the lace, the doilies and ribbons. I’ve tried my hand at a lot of different crafts over the years but since starting scrapbooking, these have taken a bit of a backseat and like most of us, I can’t imagine my life without it now.
I am married with 2 adult children and a very proud Grandma to 2 gorgeous girls who appear quite a bit on my layouts. I am so happy to be joining the Scrap Jacked Design Team and would like to thank Bec for inviting me.
My name is Dana Tatar and I am a stay-at-home mom. I have two daughters, Claire (5) and Scarlett (3). I married my high school sweetheart in 2003 and have been happy ever since. I graduated from MSU with a B.S. in Biochemistry and worked in that field for about 3 years before I gave birth to my first daughter and decided to stay home full time. I have had many hobbies over the years, but scrapping is the one that really gives me satisfaction. I started scrapbooking to preserve memories after the birth of my first daughter. I love to mix products from different collections on my layouts and I frequently find inspiration in music, poetry and pop culture. I love fussy cutting and flowers and both can be seen on the majority of my layouts. I would say that my dominant scrappy styles are clean and simple and pretty chic, but I do like to mix things up a bit, depending on the paper or photos I want to use. When I'm not scrapping, I enjoy cooking and baking, reading, listening to music and spending time outdoors with my family and basset hound. Please come visit my blog,

Welcome to 2 new DT members...............

Well, what a job I had!! Choosing new DT members was so hard. I wanted to have everyone on the team as all the applications were just amazing.

Thank you to all that applied and I honestly wish that I could have you all on the Scrap Jacked team.

Onto 2 new DT members who are amazing.

Hi my name is Naomi and I have been around the scrappy circles for the last 8 years, I have no particular style that I stick to just directed by what ever mood I am in at the time I pick up the paper and glue. I am so excited to be part of the Scrapjacked design team and look forward to being constantly inspired by the scrapbooking community.

Come and visit me at and dont forget to say hello you never know what might happen to come your way..

Hey everyone! My name's Beth Jarrett and I have been scrapping for the last 10 years. I am blessed with three children, who are the subject of most of my scrapping. When I am not scrapping, I like to either sew, knit or crochet. I also like to combine these other crafts into my scrapbooking. My scrapbooking style has always been the same, really. I am a very linear scrapper, I measure everything to the millimetre! I like my pages to be symmetrical. And it will take me sometimes up to a week to create a page. I am a very slow scrapper, which is perfectly fine by me, because most of the time I enjoy the process more than the finished product. Feel free to drop by my blog and check out my layout gallery with the last three years of layouts in it at: I am looking forward to the next 6 months being part of the Aussie Scrap Jacked team!!!

Welcome girls!!!
We all can't wait to see what you can create to inspire all of us.

Come back tomorrow for the reveal of another 2 new Scrap Jacked Design Team members.

October Challenge has arrived......................

Welcome ladies to the October Challenge.

This month we have a new sponsor from a new online store and they will be providing for the most voted for page with a store voucher valued at $35 ......................................

Scrap Friends is a store where you will find everything for your favourite hobby!
We offer the best products of world's manufactures as well as exclusive goods on Australian market.
ScrapFriends is a real store where you can have a look at all range of our products, see tutorial videos on using various tools and materials, and, of course, buy everything you like.

The second most voted page/card/creation will receive a $25 voucher from Scrap Therapy........

Danny and I purchased Scraptherapy as a small, pre-existing online store in early July 2008, as a small part-time venture. Since then we have seen amazing growth, now offering over 10,000 products. We have closed our other business to focus wholly on Scraptherapy, opening a Paper Craft Bricks and Mortar store in Babinda, FNQ to run in conjunction with the online site. During the last 2+ years we have learnt a whole load of stuff about e-commerce, scrapbooking, cardmaking and the people who love these hobbies. Although Scraptherapy has continued to grow, Danny and I have just found more hours in the day and it is still a small family owned and operated business.

At you will find a fantastic easy to use shop where we hope you will find all the latest and greatest products at great prices. If you can’t find what you are looking for feel free to contact me at and check to see if we can get it in for you. We often can. All our freight is fixed at $6 whether you choose our express post service or our postage with insurance option, and orders over $60 will get a little bonus pressie popped in with their order.
