i have decided to put together a design team for "shut up and scrap " in order to bring you all the best possible inspiration and classes.... each month the three of us will design layouts and the occasional OTP to offer you a variety of ideas and styles in one go! i hope you all have as much fun checking things out here at shut up and scrap now as we will have designing and creating for you!!

so you can get to know a little bit more about your DT's i asked them to put together a little blurb about themselves and of course a piccie so you can put a face to all the gorgeous creations that will be coming your way!!!

SANDY....." i've been scrapping for about four years. i have a love of photography and craft so what is better than scrapbooking to bring those all together. I have a wonderful husband, Mark and gorgeous daughter, Kaytlin who make great subjects for my pages"

KRISSY:...."i have been scrapping for about four years. I am wife to Al and crazy owner of two fur kids and one feathered. i am totally addicted to flowers but i love doing grungey boy layouts too. i love trying new things and fussy cutting along with 3D work is my favourite thing to do. i am so excited to have been asked to be on Jules design team and can't wait to get started"
