Hi, my name is Bridget Blake and I was born in Christchurch, New Zealand but after meeting my now husband I live in the beautiful city of Sydney, Australia. I have two beautiful girls who feature in the majority of my scrapbooking pages. I took a long break from scrapbooking when my second child was born but now I am back and I cant seem to stop and I love to learn and try new techniques and ideas. I feel very privileged to be chosen to be part of the Helmar Creative Team and I am looking forward to sharing my passion with you.
Hello, My name is Susan. I’m a wife of 20 years and mother to four amazing children. Our family is currently calling Utah Valley home after 20 years on the Gulf Coast of Alabama. I have been an avid scrapbooker for more than 15 years now. I use scrapbooking as my main creative outlet and also dabble in mixed media projects. My style has evolved from clean and simple lines to trendy, and I can’t wait to discover where I’m headed next. I am an outgoing and gregarious person that looks for any opportunity to share my love of scrapbooking and crafting. I love teaching classes and learning about new techniques and products!

Hi I'm Sue from Victoria. I've been scrapbooking for nine years now. Since our youngest son, Harry was a baby. It started with baby books and then I visited my first scrapbooking store and I was hooked, it's my time out and truly soothes my soul. My husband Rob and our three children, Callum who is twenty one, Daisy who is eighteen and young Harry are the people I scrapbook the most. I also scrapbook extended family and friends, everyday moments, milestones and just for fun. My style is playful, I love ephemera and texture. I love trying anything new. From time to time I like to do off the page projects and art journaling too. I’m so excited to be a part of the Helmar creative team and I’m really looking forward to starting my first project.
Hello, my name is Donna Lueders. I am married to a wonderful man, have 3 beautiful (grown and on thier own) children and also 3 grandchildren. I love to craft. I started with cross stitch and went to making cards, from there I have ventured out into mixed media, watercolors, drawing and many other crafty things. I work full time but still find time to do the things I love which is crafting. I feel so lucky to be one of the chosen people to be on the Helmar Design Team. When I am off work and not doing anything, I often watch my grandchildren whom I have gotten into LOVING art and making things they always want to "craft" when they are at grandmas house (smile). I am also a designer for a paper making company and I love making things from not only the paper but the pulp also.
HI! My name is Jean and I live just outside of Grand Rapids, MI. I have a twin sister and for the majority of our lives, I was the math and science one. I stayed far away from anything that involved art or being creative. Once I had children, I started scrapbooking. This was back in the days of colored cardstock and deco scissors. Two things last year brought me to where I am today. I unexpectedly lost my job and my second child was married. With both children grown and out of the house, there was only so much I could scrap. And yet, I had a room full of paper, stamps, ribbons etc. Last year I took an art class and am now using those supplies along with paints and pastes to create mixed media canvases, mini albums, and frames. Most days you will find me experimenting and learning and I look forward to having you join me on this journey. I am excited to be showcasing Helmar products!
Hello I am Rachel from Perth, Australia. I am married with four children. I am nurse by profession. Arts and crafts have always been apart of my life. Scrapbooking is my passion and it is a wonderful way to document my family/events through the years. I would describe myself as a classic scrapper, being a lover of clean lines, negative space, layering and embellishment clustering. I also love making cards and gift wrapping/tags for others (any excuse to make something pretty). I can’t wait to show case Helmar products. You can find me here on Facebook; www.facebook.com/rachel.lowe.94 and Instagram rachellowe___.
Hi I am Tamiko, single mom, one beautiful daughter. I am paper crafter first and foremost! I believe all things are possible with paper and good scissors. Add quality adhesive and things to write, draw and/or color with and BOOYAH... We are having ourselves nothing but pure JOY and EXCITEMENT and EVERYDAY can be a HOLIDAY! (ha-ha). I do a little bit of everything (smile), although my concentration as of lately has been towards, mixed media, art journaling. I am a practicing social media junky.. if there is an app. out there.. I've heard of it.. possibly used it or have had an account for it. I believe #sharingiscaring and some folks get the best learning experiences from some of the things. One can easily become an educated consumer with few inquisitive search clicks from pinterest, facebook, twitter, instagram, tumblr and bloglovin.
G’day! So Cliché I know. LOL. My name is Krisy and I am from sunny Queensland, Australia. I am a full time stay at home mum to three, Poppy 3, Leo 2 and Autumn 1. I have always been creative but decided to really focus on sharing what I create the year my youngest daughter was born. I set myself some creative goals and the next thing on my list was an International Design Team. So here I am. My first art love is Scrapbooking. I love documenting memories but not in your traditional scrapbooking way. Scrapbooking for me is about being able to incorporate art into the process. I didn’t really discover my true style until I realised you can really do what your heart desires. There are really no rules you have to follow. I create under the name Popleopod and I am all about Art Meeting Memories. I have a very eclectic style and approach to my art so I will try anything that tickles my fancy. I keep journals of idea sketches that are just waiting to be created. So expect a range of different projects from me.
Hello my name is Sarah Rosse and I live in Victoria, Australia. I am married with two boys and am an fanatical scrapbooker! I work full time but every spare minute I have is doing, thinking or creating something crafty. My boys are legely my inspiration for scrapbooking, however I love mixed media and getting messy on my pages. Scrapbooking provides a creative outlet for me – a perfect partner with my love of photography and memory keeping. I enjoy creating in mostly a 12x12 format but also pocket scrapbooking. I love creating my own backgrounds and enjoy lots of colour! I am currently a design member on a number of teams – please be sure to check out my Facebook page at https://facebook.com/myscrappingspace to see my work and also at my blog. I am so excited to be joining the Helmar creative team – the amazing product lines are key to any creative project and as they say, ‘it’s the glue that holds it all together!’.
Hi I am Lisa, I’m from Victoria. I am a forty something wife & a Mum to 2 teenagers. I work part time and love to spend what I can of my free time paper crafting. I started scrapbooking when my daughter was about one (she is nearly 19!) My style has certainly changed over the years. I am mostly a traditional 12x12 scrap booker but I also do some project life, card making, journaling & pretty much like to try my hand at everything. Most would describe my design style as clean & neat or pretty. I love embellishment clusters & layering - I do like to mix it up & get messy occasionally too. I am looking forward to being a part of the Helmar Creative team & hope to bring you some inspiration. I am very active on Instagram you can find me here: https://www.instagram.com/lisa_skinner_/
Hi, my name is Vicki-Ann or as most people know me Sandy Beach. I live in a small town in country Victoria, Australia. I am a mixed media artist featuring collage as my main medium. I love infusing bright colours as well as Zendangles into my whimsical pieces. When my hands are covered in glue, paint or ink I am at my happiest. I like to incorporate sewing into my art as I received my first sewing machine at 16 and it’s still the one I use today. You can find me over at instagram @sandybeachart.
Hi! My name is Amy, I started scrapbooking in 2001 after the birth of my first born and became quickly hooked. Right now you can find me near Denver with two boys, a Marine, a cat named Pablo and two dogs! From there my passion went to hybrid and digital scrapbooking and designing. I think my style varies from one medium to the next but I try and find balance in every project that I create ;) I've had many ventures from designing products for Dream Street Papers, Pink Paislee, MiDesign@Michaels, PageFrames, Coolihah App, TapNScrap App and Magistical Memories to being on digital/hybrid and paper design teams.
