Look who's joining the team!

So, we have a slight changing of the guard here at Show Us Your Stuff in 2015...

First of all we say goodbye to the lovely Sophie Koschmann, who has been with SUYS for quite some time and brought us some beautiful & very inspiring work. Sophie is one very busy gal, and we would like to thank her for her time and wish her all the best for the future.

Our remaining DT members from 2014 have all agreed to stay on, so you will see plenty more of their work this year.

Vicki Burdon remains our Challenge Owner & Administrator; whilst Sue Plumb is our Technical Editor and Chloe Nielsen is our new Pinterest Manager. Yes, we are now on Pinterest!

Now onto our most exciting news...we are very pleased to announce we have some new faces joining our DT this year! Please welcome...

Hi there - my name is Kylie I live in a little rural town Gundagai in NSW, I run a little boutique style scrapbooking store Scrappingclearly in the main street it's my happy place I am also online…. Married to David mum two Royce who is almost 18 and Chelsea 15 a pigeon pair…. I have been scrapbooking for over 18 years and enjoy it and am even more addicted today ! I also love to play sports Touch Football and Hockey and I am forever in my car touring my children all over the country with theirs…… I love Fashion and the shopping that goes along with it…...

I have evolved lots in my time scrapbooking - I don't have any particular style and love to create in various ways from traditional to Mixed Media, Project Life and I am huge fan of Memory Files. I was lucky enough to become a Scrapbooking Memories Masters in 2006 and a Elite Member of For Keeps, learning so much along the way! I just love to create and to take photographs to document my families life. I have my own studio which was once my husbands tool shed (long story) :0) - can't wait to share some of my creations with you all….

I live in a little as in teeny tiny country town just outside of Toowoomba in Queensland. I'm a house painter during the day and mum of 2. Tarj 8 and Ivy almost 7.
I've had a recent break from scrapping for a year or so as I had lost ALL of my creative mojo. But now I'm getting back into it with a love of making my own backgrounds as well as some semi traditional layout with a random twist.

I live in Melbourne, am married with 2 children, Melanie aged 24 and Kieran aged 21. I work as a Maternal and Child Health Nurse, offering support to families with children aged from birth to 4 years of age. It is a rewarding job, which I really enjoy. For my wind down, I like to be creative. I have been dabbling in many different crafts for many years, starting with quilting. I have tried many things and vowed and declared I would never do scrapbooking. That declaration didn't last long, and I started scrapbooking about 10 years ago, after seeing what my own mother was creating. I like to try many different things, at the moment am enjoying mixed media. I don't think I have any particular style of scrapping, but do love to add a flower or two to my layouts.

Hi Lisette here. I live in Sydney with my hubby of almost 25 years, two daughters 20 & 18, a dog and 2 cats. It's a new era in our household as DD finished school last year. Still working out what I want to do when I grow up, hopefully 2015 will bring some clarity. Ours is a netball household with all but hubby playing and umpiring. I have been scrapping for about 10 years. I have always been crafty - tapestry, cross stich, folk art, paper tole, quilting and currently loving teaching myself (with the aid of uTube) to crochet. Don't really know how to describe my style it changes all the time. At the moment I love using mists and masks. I got some Gelatos for Christmas so am looking forward to creating with those. I love using bright colours and almost always will have a flower or two (or more) on my layouts.
I am so excited to be on my first Design Team here at Show Us Your Stuff.
