New Design Team Members

Fiona Paltridge (Australia)

Hi! My name is Fiona & I live in South Australia with my husband.
I have 2 adult children who have both moved away to pursue their careers. I have been a scrapbooker for almost 15 years now but I have only recently discovered the online world of challenges & design teams! 

I'm enjoying meeting so many amazing & talented people & having a chance  to share my love of creating as well as being exposed to a never-ending stream of  ideas, techniques & wonderful creations from my online compatriots!!

 Most of my work has a contemporary feel about it & I absolutely love using mixed media on my projects. Since I've discovered modelling paste, gesso & watercolours I love using them on everything I create!!  I currently design for 3 other teams in Australia and 2 International teams. I have also recently been so privileged to have been named as one of Australia's Scrapbooking Memories Masters.

I also dabble in making video tutorials that I like to share on YouTube too & I cannot believe I have been asked to be a part of Scrapki-wyzwaniowo & share my love of creating with you all. 

Irina Teeshoom (Russia)

My name is Irina Teeshoom. I'm from Moscow. Sometimes I’m a big introvert, but sometimes I’m a crazy laughter. Venturesome scrapbooker with a free and crazy style. Scrapbooking for me is an art therapy and the way to express and find myself in everyday routine. It’s just enough for me to have some papers and paints to engage myself into my favorite meditative hobby.

Tores (Poland)

My name is Magdalena Pucia aka Tores and I cut, stick and splash in my scraproom for almost ten years. Initially I used to "keep memories" in LO and albums with photos of my family (I have a husband and two daughters), but now I explore art journaling, doodling, collage - for creative fun and self-expression. I like connecting different styles and embellishments, but always use stamps and word stickers (words are really important part of my works). Beside scrapbooking I'm addicted to reading books and watching tv crime series.

Sylwia (Ireland/Poland)

 My name is Sylwia Gryczuk and I am originally from Poland but I live and create in  Claregalway Co.Galway.  I work with different mixed media materials such as acrylic, inks, watercolours, vintage papers, beeswax, fabric and 3D elements.

 I am very passionate about creating happy art pieces with a little bit of magic. I love painting Fairies, art journaling, collages, altered items and craft projects. In 2012 I have created TandiArt Studio, where I put my whole heart into white canvas, pages and 3D objects to transform them into something happy and soulful.

Elena Tretiakova (Russia)

Hi! My name is Elena. I'm from Moscow. Married. I'm a mother to 2 naughty boys. By profession I'm a teacher of the German.
The Scrapbooking is for me a fascinating journey, the study of my creative abilities. I'm happy to meet so many creative people around here.
I'm inspired by many things around me: children, nature, art objects...I love to create layouts, cards, canvas. Childhood is the basic theme of my projects.
I like to  take care of my garden, watch nature, read books, spend time with my family..
I'm honored to be a part of the talented Scrapki-Wyzwaniowo team!"

Valia Katzaki (Greece)

Hello! I'm Valia Katzaki & I live in Athens, Greece. I am happily married with 3 children, a teenager & two toddlers - a lethal combination! I started scrapbooking 3 years ago & have been hooked ever since! I love flowers & chipboard embellishments & always incorporate them into my layouts, even when I am scrapping my boys. 

I love colour & working with muted tones as well as beautiful, bright, saturated ones too! I love shabby & romantic styles as well as getting my hands dirty with mixed media to customise my work into something uniquely ME!

I am really honored to be part of the Scrapki-Wyzwaniowo team along with such talented ladies & I cant wait to share my love for papercrafting and all things beautiful with you all! 

Marina Syskova (Russia)

My name is Marina Syskova. I'm from Russia, Penza. I'm 27 and about 2,5 years ago I fell in love with scrapbooking!)) My favorite styles are freestyle and mixed media, becose I feel the freedom of expression with it. In ordinary life, I,m oncologist and teacher at the medical school. I love my job, because I like to help people. And my second hobby - it's wushu. I love it for physical activity and philosophical part.
I am infinitely happy to be a part of such an incredibly talented DT as scrapki-wyzwaniowo!!!

Olga Kolov (Germany)

I am Olga Kolov, the wife of a wonderful man, that honored my passion and mom of 2 creative boys, aged 3 and 8, that honored my scrapbooking staff.  Our family lives in wonderful small town Oldenburg in north Germany, near to Bremen. We have a house with a cat ;) I am quality assurance manager by day and creativity monster by night ;)

As designer, I am in love with shabby chic, vintage style and mixed media. I make cards, canvas and altered art.

Tatiana Yemelyanenko (Ukraine)

My name is Tatiana Yemelyanenko, I'm from Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine. I hold a PhD and worked at the University but now my work is my sweet  little daughter. I fell in love with scrapbooking and mixed media in the end of 2011. I love that scrapbooking helps me to capture the moments of my life and brings feeling of creativity in ordinary days. I like to experiment with different styles and techniques and use mists, paints, texture pastes and stencils in my projects.
