August 2016 - Guest Designer - Beverley Cunningham

Welcome back to our August 123 Challenge and our Guest Design Team Member - Beverley Cunningham....


Hi, I am Beverley Cunningham and I live in beautiful New Zealand right near beaches and a national park - sometimes it is hard to think I live in the biggest city in New Zealand. I have three children who are my main inspiration for my layouts.

  I started scrapbooking ten years ago after my sister bought me a scrapbooking kit for my birthday. That kit became a crop bag,then a whole cupboard, then a whole scrap room to now an even bigger area in my garage!
It did not help my obsession for scrapbooking that I worked and taught at a scrapbook store for four years. Since the store closed down I have gone back to my old line of work and have less time to scrapbook and it has become a very part time hobby which I still thoroughly enjoy.

  I have met a whole lot of amazing fellow scrapbookers from New Zealand and abroad and gained heaps of confidence through this hobby. I love mixed media and embellishments - some of my layouts have so many products on but I have managed to incorporate more white space over the last few years.

I am honoured to be a guest designer and you can find more of my creations on my blog here:
And this is the beautiful layout that Beverley has created with the Inspiration Board for our August 123 Challenge:

123 Challenge - July 2016 - Guest Designer - Rebecca Daly

Welcome back to our July 123 Challenge and our Guest Design Team Member - Rebecca Daly....


My name is Rebecca Daly, a 34 year old stay at home mom of a 3 year old boy Kyle who is the inspiration for 90% of my scrapbooking creations. I have been scrapping for about 10 years but it has only been over the last two years that I have been focused on learning new techniques and experimenting with new mediums. My (usual) style is clean and cute but more often than not I am mixing it up with girly and fun. I live with my husband (shane) and cat (suzie) in rural north east Alberta Canada near the town of Bonnyville. The most unique thing about my scrapbooking life is that I scrapbook on my kitchen counter (as I don't have a craft room in our current house). Scrapbooking things I cannot live without are: 1) my cutting mat; 2) my silhouette, and 3) my crockpot!!!

123 Challenge - July 2016 - Guest Designer - Tanya Heritage

Welcome back to our July 123 Challenge and our Guest Design Team Member - Tanya Heritage....


I live on the Gold Coast and I’m married to one very understanding husband who supports my scrapbooking obsession, we have two teenage children who are the reason I started scrapbooking.  One thing I do love about scrapbooking is the way we all evolve and our styles change with time and the products that become available. Last year I started taking part in monthly challenges. I love to see what other people create and how we all perceive the challenges. It has also been really nice to become social with so many other scrapbookers who also enter the challenges. Please feel free to stop by my blog and take a look.

123 Challenge - July 2016 - Guest Designer - Katie Howard

Welcome back to our July 123 Challenge and our Guest Design Team Member - Katie Howard....


Hi, my name is Katie and I have been scrapping for about 10 years (give or take), although this year seems to be a little more on the take side as I have returned to study! Over the years I have been lucky enough to be a part of many wonderful creative teams and have made many friends this way. My style is probably considered graphic with embellishment clusters, although I do love to use some mixed media too, and I love to experiment with new product and techniques (which helps explain my one of everything stash!). I was excited and honoured to be asked to be a guest designer for 1,2,3 Challenge and had great fun creating my page for this months challenge.
