October... really already?


That is the sound of life flying past me at a great rate of knots.

So along with welcoming a new month in we also welcome a new scrapjack, and this month is an exciting little layout from Julie Winks

My name is Julie Winks and my husband Troy and I live in Central Queensland with our four incredibly active kids, Maddison 16, Claire 13, Cooper 9 and my little man at home, Lachlan 4. 

Whilst whatever style I have is constantly evolving, some aspects remain constant.  I love to layer with plenty of detail, I adore white space and I am really colour driven.  Colour combinations in design are always the things that catch my eye and are inevitably what inspires me when I create a layout... no doubt a hangover from my interior design days at uni, which is now far too long ago to admit to!! 

I have been on Design Teams for Dusty Attic, The Scrapboxx and The Colour Room and have also been on the Creative Teams for challenge sites Kraft It Up and Stuck! Sketches.

In the last 12 months I have started to dip my toes into the wonderful experience of teaching this amazing craft of ours and I think I am just as hooked on sharing the passion as I am with the creative process.   Most recently I was lucky enough to scrore a gig teaching at the ever popular Brisbane Scrapbooking and Papercraft Expo and have also taught classes via video tutorials for Miss Art’s Papercrafting School.

I am thrilled to be scrapjacked and can’t wait to see what all of you creative goddesses come up with!  J

I do believe this layout is sunshine and spring all wrapped up in a bundle of goodness here are a few close ups that will help you gather some more ideas...

I will be back tomorrow with the design teams takes on Julies layout and you are going to be blown away with what they do..

dont forget to go have a peek at our Pinterest page for a little more inspiration if you need

drumroll for our winner please

Firstly can I say thank you, thank you, thank you for coming to play at the new scrapjack studio... I have loved getting all the mail in my inbox and I look forward to alot more.

It has been a busy busy month here at home base with the computer deciding to fry earlier in the month and I have not been able to do half the things that I orginally wanted to with the launch of the new site.... but never fear, that is life in all its glory and it paves the way for more things this month.

so winner winner chicken dinner...... thanks to our random selector at inlinkz, beause if it was up to me you would all be winning. It is the fairest way to play I think..
