3 Attachment(s)
I canít believe that itís already February! This year is flying by already.
But at least itís Friday!! So that means some new Diva Designers to inspire us :)


I first found Lotus Paperie on Flickr Ė I was just messing around looking through random pictures and saw these amazing layouts that I just had to find out more about! So, I did a search and found the Lotus Paperie blog where a talented gal named Vanessa has a kit club with challenges and sketches and everything!

I immediately invited her to join the Diva Designer challenge so I could share with all of you this gem thatís hiding out there!! And, after much waiting while Vanessa got her familyís new home in order, Iím now ready to present to you the fantastically creative Lotus Paperie Design Team:

Tania
Jessi Lute
Ronda Palazzari
Christine
and the owner of Lotus Paperie Kit Club:
Vanessa Falle

Welcome, welcome, ladies, and thank you for diva-ing this week!


To participate in the challenge, draw on the inspiration from these gifted divas - and be sure to type in SBDD12 for the Keyword when you upload. Thanks to everyone for joining in the challenge! Donít forget to post a link here to your creation so that we can all ooh and ahhhh ;)

Jennie,
You little trixter! hehehe

Welcome ladies, glad to have you!

jessi lute 02-01-2008 09:21 AM

hi ladies...sorry we are so late in making an appearance...had a bit of time trying to find thread...i got hopelessly lost, LOL!!

so i will quickly introduce myself...

my name is jessi

I am a 30 year old SAHM to 3 children. My son, Dakota, is ; my daughter, Haillee, is 5; and my baby girl, Delainey, is 2...and they definitely keep me busy and are most definitely my biggest inspiration!!! I am married to a pretty cool guy, Jason, who may harrass me about my scrapbook addiction...but he loves it just the same!!!

I have been scrapbooking for just over 5 years,currently design for lotus paperie and one little word, teach classes at my LSS, and love the creative outlet it provides me. I love that I can combine art and stories and create something unique for my family...and generations to treasure for years to come! I love that it is something that is a continual process of change and learning...I love that it brings people across the world together...I love that there is so much inspiration and love shared by this art. Simply put...I just love scrapbooking!

thanks for having us...we are excited to be here!!

I know I confused everybody with the Tim Holtz challenge to find a Diva!! :eek:
Sorry for that!

This team are the divas for this week, and the Tim Holtz challenge winner will be Diva at the end of February :-D

lotuspaperie 02-01-2008 09:39 AM

What a treat!
 
Good morning gals!
I'm Vanessa and I'm the owner of Lotus Paperie (www.lotuspaperie.blogspot.com) this site won't let me post a hotlink yet. I started the blog a little more than a year ago and introduced the scrappers in my then-local community to the idea of challenges. I have been teaching scrapbooking for the last three years and became a scrapbooker by accident. I was asked, in 2004 to host a CTMH gathering and became a consultant shortly thereafter. I work from home running my very busy blog and scrapbooking for private clients as well as making wedding stationery for some deliciously upscale clients!!

My blog was originally created to be a meeting place for creative types and holds to that still today. In addition to the weekly challenges- some sketch oriented, others glean inspiration from the world around us, including artists who work in non-scrapbook based mediums- I also sell unique scrapbooking kits- called Couture Collections which feature fantastic items borrowed from the fashion industry. In fact, this month's Couture Collection includes some gorgeous pearl-headed hat pins and ultra-cool measuring tape printed fabric.

Every week a new challenge is posted and visitors who wish to participate are invited to upload their pages to the Lotus Paperie Flickr Group (the link is on the blog sidebar & in this morning's post) to get a chance to win the newest Couture Collection. Today, a new challenge was posted to the blog and you are invited to join in on the fun! In addition to the regular challenges at Lotus Paperie, I'm offering you guys an exclusive opportunity to win a kit! Just scraplift one of the pages posted by the Team here, post it online by noon PST Wednesday the 6th and we'll vote on a fave! The winner will be announced on Thursday on this thread and also on my blog!

Oh, and Ronda sends her regards and extends a thank-you for the invitation to participate but due to a family emergency, she won't be able to join us this time.

I'm still finding my way around this site so I'm going to upload my page and come back shortly with that post. Thanks for having us and I look forward to seeing your scraplifts!!

elliesmom 02-01-2008 09:47 AM

Welcome, welcome Jessi and Vanessa!!
Thanks for providing inspiration for this week.

And thank you for offering up a Couture Collection kit to one of the SCSers!!
Whoo hooo!!!

Not sure what's happening, I'll PM the mods for you!

Tania's Trail 02-01-2008 10:02 AM

Hello! :)

My name is Tania, I'm a 33 yr old SAHM (is there really such a thing?, lol) of 3. Chastity, 10 in 2 wks, Emma, 8 and Mikhail 13 months (explaining why I'm late getting on here, lol.) and wife to hubby Trevor, 14 yrs this month.
I've been 'acid free' scrapping and addicted since 2000, and am always up for a challenge.

Can't wait to start roaming around and finding all the inspiration on this site.

elliesmom 02-01-2008 10:02 AM

Maybe we should give it an hour or so to refresh or something like that?
Sorry for the troubles :(

lotuspaperie 02-01-2008 10:03 AM

Christine couldn't be here in person today so I'm posting on her behalf...

Hey, Christine here. In the past two and half years I have not only become the mother of two amazing kids, I have also become a bit of a scrap-a-holic. Recently, I have even begun teaching a few scrap courses. My son absolutely loves adding pages to any one of the three scrap albums I have on the go right now. The layout I am sharing with you today is from my Alphabet album " W is for Winter". I love this album because there is no chronological order. I just add pages as I gather pictures and get an inspiration. My aim is to have it completed by the time my kids enter school, but at the rate I have been going I should have it finished in less than a year!

BetsyJo 02-01-2008 11:59 AM

wendella247 02-01-2008 01:39 PM

Ooh, ooh -- Such great pages to inspire us!! :D ;)

Thanks so much for joining us, Lotus Paperie ladies--I hope to get a page or two done this week!

Wow!! Awesome site and truly some insprational work posted!! Wow!! Did I say Wow?...WOW!! Where are you located with temp dropping below 50 degees?

lotuspaperie 02-02-2008 08:23 AM

Thanks for all the kind words about the site, I work really hard to make it cool, I'm glad you think it is too!! To answer your question about my location, I live in Whitehorse Yukon, Canada...I'm neighbors with Alaska. Truth be told, while the temperature is effin' cold, my fantastic husband can fix anything so when the pipes freeze or the propane gels he knows exactly what to do to remedy the situation. I wouldn't have moved here if he hadn't spent the first 25+ years of his life here! So that gives me tremendous amounts of security and I know we're all ok, even at -50!!

Lmn 02-02-2008 09:17 AM

WOW! Great Diva's again Jennie! Lots of GREAT pages to scraplift, not sure which one to start with!

mhowe 02-02-2008 10:43 AM

Here's mine. Very fun!

P.S. Vanessa, my very first scrapbook had a 2 page layout from Whitehorse Yukon, Canada! My husband played golf there and had his picture taken with 'Sunshine' who was the owner/pro/etc at the course. Beautiful place!

Favorite Grandma 02-06-2008 05:23 AM

great job ladies! love seeing all the pages

Favorite Grandma 02-06-2008 06:07 AM

welcome, welcome, welcome - loved all the inspiration!

I didn't have DGD for a couple days so got to play:mrgreen:

this was inspired by the strips of pics in the left page of the dps; but I had so many I wanted to use on one page, I made them much smaller; it kind of ended up being like the stip on the 3rd LO, so guess it's kind of combo inspiration.:D

give thanks



loved the colors of the second LO and reminded me to use my spiral tab punch again;)
DVC


the circle really caught my eye on the last LO

elliesmom 02-06-2008 07:16 AM
