 Design Team Coordinator & Facebook Manager

Hi my name is Di Garling & I live down under in Australia.  I am married to a very patient man, I have two grown up sons, two grandchildren & a little dog called Tilly.  I owned & operated a Scrapbook shop for eight years until I recently sold it & retired, although I still teach there once or  twice a week.  
I think retirement is the best kept secret & I love it. 

 Mini Challenge Manager

Hi! My name is Heather McMahon and I’m from Australia. I live on a small farm with my husband. My two university-aged kids often come home too. I’ve been scrapping for about 17 years and I never tire of it. Ok, I confess, I’m obsessed! I love the way scrapping keeps evolving and that anything goes when it comes to styles, products and creativity. I love the camaraderie among scrappy ladies and the way we can connect with people around the world. I also love to travel
and have no end of travel photos to scrap!

Blog Post Manager & Guest Coordinator

I'm Nicole from Canada's beautiful East coast! I share my home with my  fiance Yves and our fur baby Sugar the cat. I love reading, music  (yes! I do sing in the shower sometimes!), social game nights with friends, road trips and spending as much time in my scrap room as I can! I have a shabby chic romantic style and I love to dabble with mixed media techniques. I started scrapbooking in 2004, starting blogging about it in 2011 and it has been a marvelous adventure ever since!

I am a retired RN and live in a small northern town in Ontario Canada with  my hubby. I am grandma to four wonderful grandchildren who are often the  subject matter in my scrapping. I love to garden, cross-stitch and read when  I am not scrapping. My style is for the most part shabby chic but I am open
to new ideas and trends. I just love to try new things!

Hi, My name is Caroline. I’m a mother of three boys and am in love with my best friend for 15 years. I have been scrapbooking since 2005 or around when I became a mother. My sons are my inspiration, but as they grow up, they don’t want to take the pose anymore so I have to be creative for pictures. Since my beginnings, I have taken part in many creative teams and it's an honour to be part
of More than words with these talented ladies.

Hello! My name is Valia Katzaki and I am from sunny Greece! I am  a working mother of three and a passionate scrapper for the past four years. My style is a bit vintage, a bit shabby, filled with tons of flowers with a touch of mixed media. I mostly do layouts but I love altered items as well.  I can't wait
to share this journey with all of you!

My name is Aga Baraniak and I am a 34 year old girl from Poland, Europe. I'm totally mad about mixed media and am in love with art journals. I love to create mixed media projects such as layouts, ATCs and canvases. I love good coffee and cycling and I like to take challenges in my life. I am a happy wife 
and mother who develops her hobby in her free time.

Hello there, my name is Anguree, and I am really honoured to be part if this amazing team. I am married to a wonderful guy and live in Darwin, in Australia's tropical north. We have no children except for a very spoiled Chocolate Labrador. I was introduced to scrapbooking in 2005 and have been addicted ever since. I generally scrap 12x12 pages, but also make cards, tags, art 
journal pages and off the page projects. My style vary from grungy to shabby but no style is off limits. Experimenting with new techniques and products keeps me engaged and inspired. It makes it fun and allows me to jump between different styles depending on the products I use. I have had the privilege to teach at my local scrapbooking shop and have been very fortunate to have been published in Creative Papercraft and Scrapbooking Memories Magazine. I am serving on a number of different design teams and really treasure the friendships I have been able to build with those who I work with and have meet both online and in real life. I scrap and craft because it makes me happy. I love to share the joy it gives me with others in the hope that it will encourage them to play along and find the same kind of happiness. To me it's all about sharing the little things 
that makes life a happier place.

My name is Elena Martynova. I am 39. I live in a big town in southern Russia. I am a happy wife and  mother of a son and daughter. My profession is an economist, but I don't currently work.

I love pets. I have a dog and three cats.

Hello!  Nice to meet you here on the More Than Words blog!  My name is Heike aka Heike's AugenBlick on the web.  I live in the oldest city of the beautiful country of The Netherlands  with my biggest supporter and love of my life, Jörgen.  Our love is crowned with 2 girls and 2 boys, 1 son-in-law and 3 lovely grandchildren.  I always worked as a stay-at-home-mom, but now, with 4 grown-up children, I have more time for me and my passion, scrapbooking. My style?  Hmm... vintage, modern, abstract... I don't know.  But one thing is for sure, it's always colourful.  I am thankful for this opportunity to scrap together with an amazing team.

Hello, I'm Janice Nicholls and I live in a small country town in South Australia.  I have been scrapbooking for over 10 years. My 2 children and my family all feature in my work. I'm not sure that I have a particular style; I love to try new techniques... not always successful, but it's fun trying! I like creating with smaller photos, lots of layers, small clusters and leaving some white space. I also enjoy creating cards for family and friends. I have been very fortunate to be part of a few amazing design teams, had the opportunity to guest design and lucky enough to have had some of my layouts published in Scrapbook Memories and Scrapbook Creations.  I am honoured and very excited to be amongst this talented bunch 
of girls here at More Than Words!

am Kavitha from Chennai, India. I have always had a creative flair, but I was unable to pursue this until I completed my studies. After I received my degree, I had the freedom to do what I want so I did  a couple of designing and fine arts courses. I stumbled upon paper crafting when I started blogging a few years ago and was blown away by the talent I discovered and this inspired me to take paper crafting seriously. I love trying new things which means I don't stay with a particular style or art form for long. From fine arts to crafts I have tried my hand at many things and my latest obsession is mixed media. I love mixed media as it inspires me to create with out any restriction, fulfils my love for playing with colours and to enables me to use all thing pretty. My creations are inspired by colours and my style can be clean and cluttered with a touch of shabby chic or vintage. Apart from crafting I love good music, sleeping and long drives and, of course, shopping!

Hello everybody! My name is Lydie Denis, aka Lilibleu. I'm 43, married and a mother of 2 boys, aged 9 and 7. I live in the south of France, in a lovely sunny region I love, named Provence. Together with my husband, we run our own e-shop, called Ysandel, selling fantasy jewelry. I discovered scrapbooking during early 2009, after my second son was born. Now it's a real part of my everyday life! My kids, daily life and the beauty of nature are my main sources of inspiration. I love to give volume 
to my creations, using inks, modelling paste and flowers.

Hi! My name is Mary and I live in Greece with my husband and our 3 children.  I met scrapbooking 3 years ago and since then it has been my obsession!  My style is mixed media, with a little vintage and some shabby chic touches. I usually create layouts, but I also love to design tags, cards, mini albums and canvases as well. I like to test my creative ability and always try to improve my skills. I find a lot of my inspiration in everyday life and when I scrap I feel so happy that I totally forget everything about me. I am so honoured to be on some wonderful design teams, and being a member on the More Than Words DT is like a dream come true to me!

Hello!  I'm Torsa, I live in Maryland, USA, with my husband and our 8 year old daughter.  My family is my backbone!  I am a software engineer by profession, but art is my passion, my dream and the something I breathe for.
