Meet the New DT | shop talk


Hi, I’m Rona Thompson, and I’m so happy to have been asked to join the Evalicious DT. My husband and I live near Toronto, Canada, and we’re busy with a son, who plays hockey and baseball, and a daughter, who has just started high school and practices taikwondo and hours of texting. We also have a golden doodle who's into sleeping, long walks in the park, and lying on top of my iPad when I’m trying to read.

In my professional life, I’m a CPA/CA, but I get my real joy from scrapbooking and card making. I've always loved being creative, having gone through many phases of crafting – needlepoint, knitting, jewelry making, to name a few. But scrapbooking is the one that I've stuck with for over ten years, and I can’t imagine ever stopping! My style is quite traditional. You’ll see a lot of two page layouts from me.


CHANTAL PHILIPPE

My name is Chantal and I am SO thrilled and beyond excited to be part of the Evalicious team. I am a Canadian currently residing in our nation's capital, Ottawa with my partner, my brother and my daughter as well (on a part time basis). I started scrapping digitally back in 2008 after my daughter Meagan was born but for the last few months, I've been playing around with pretty papery things and I am in love, completely hooked and deeply obsessed. I'm very much looking forward to sharing my projects with you all AND seeing all of yours!

I can also be found sharing bits and pieces of my life on my blog at www.paperfilledmoments.blogspot.ca


CHRISTINE NEWMAN

My name is Christine Newman and I'm very excited to be back on the Evalicious team! I'm a life documenter and storyteller. I love to create memories and document them. I love photos, blogging, running, eating, and all things crafty. I live with my husband Todd and my cat Noodle in Southern California. You can find me blogging my life at http://www.listgirl.com.








Hello! My name is Laura Whitaker and I am so thrilled to be joining the Evalicious team for a second term! I can usually be found hanging out with my husband, our 3 sons (ages 25, 23 and 11) and our puppy, if I am not in my craft room. I homeschool our youngest son, so I do not always have a lot of time to play however, my soul seems to crave being creative so I try to do something crafty every day, even if it is only planning or organizing my next project. I am looking forward to sharing many Evalicious projects with you, both here and on my blog www.scrappinaroundtheclock.blogspot.com.



Hello there, I'm Rachel Lim and I'm delighted to be part of Evalicious newest Design Team!

I'm born and raised on the sunny island Singapore - a small yet busy garden city where I spend my days running the household and getting busy with my 3 boys (the husband and 2 sons). By nightfall, I can be found at my work desk crafting away. Among the many hobbies that I have, scrapbooking is my number one love, and I totally love paper and any other elements that goes with it.

You'll get to see me making mini albums, bookbinding, altered projects and Project Life-ing. Occasionally, I'll pull out my planner and art journal to create a storm out of them. You can find me on Instagram (@scrappinlove) as well as over at my Blog.



SAM HO

Hello there, my name is Sam (or WaiSam a.k.a. Happie Scrappie). I am a paper, stationery and planner addict based in Malaysia/Singapore. I have a toddler, Ivan who was born in March 2013, who is my little helper when it comes to crafting and managing my little online shop. He is also the main subject and inspiration for my scrapbooking and project life-ing. 

I started scrapbooking when I moved to Singapore in November 2011. I joined a beginner scrapbook class in one of the local scrapbook store and I’ve been hooked since. I am currently a WFHM (Work From Home Mom) who runs a little online store selling stationeries and also enjoys playing with papers, glue and scissors whenever I need some me-time. I love working with pastel colors most of the time and I can’t complete a layout without adding some machine stitching, paint splatter and a splash of colors. I normally enjoy creating layouts and I have also started my Project Life in January 2013. I love making mini albums and photo-cards for my friends and family just to capture those precious little moments.




Hello Hello! I’m always inspired by things around me and make time each day for art....living in the motto to “find inspiration everyday everywhere”. It’s funny that when I’m not creating I’m usually jotting down ideas for creations later once back in my art room. Since scrapbooking 15+ years ago, I've been addicted since the beginning. I have a strong passion for life art, lots of creative spirit, and fearless in working with new products and techniques. My style would be defined as blending the old + new + typically adding stamping in the mix. During the day, I work full-time as an audit manager. I also love drawing, travel, photography, cooking, and reading. 

Proudly designing for Prima and bi-monthly Freelance Designer for Paper House Productions.

They're finally here! They are so stinkin' cute. I can't wait to see what you'll do with them.

And now about the DT call...I've decided to ask a few of the past DT members to rejoin the team and so excited that they said yes! I do need 2 more members though to make a team of 6. I'd like posts to be made on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. I hope their work will help keep everyone inspired to use your Evalicious goods because honestly, I'm doing a horrible job at it! I'm so busy with filling wholesale orders, designing for Christine over at Cocoa Daisy, my other work and now tending to a family member's health that I don't have time to scrapbook my own memories. I do plan to have some down time though in December to hopefully do some scrapbooking. Can't wait.
