Erin Blegen and Sandi Smith


My name is Erin Blegen and I’m from the United States. I’ve been with my hubby Josh for 6 1/2 years and we have 3 children. We live a quiet life in the woods and enjoy the outdoors immensely! Hunting, fishing, four wheeling, gardening, swimming- anything to get us outside. I also love baking, cooking, and canning- especially when it comes to something homegrown :). And of course I love my year-round hobby of papercrafting! I love to mix it up with layouts, cards, tags, altered projects, and canvases- anything to keep me being creative and learning more about myself artistically. You can find me at my blog space here:

I’m honored to be a part of the 7 Dots Studio Design Team!

Erin’s blog:



My name is Sandi Smith and I live in Newfoundland, Canada with my wonderful husband and 2 great kids, Rick is 22 and Claudine is 14.I did my first layout in January 2010 and was immediately hooked! I am obsessed with all things associated with scrapping and I am always in “scrapbook mode “, constantly looking at things in our everyday lives for sources of inspiration.
I love to tear, wrinkle, sew and to get messy with gesso, mists and paint. I also love to refinish antique furniture and my latest love is painting girls on mixed media backgrounds.

I don`t feel I have a definite style. My creations can be vintage, shabby chic or loaded with paints ,sprays and gesso…depends on my mood and what inspires me at that time.I tend to gravitate towards creating 12 x 12 layouts but I also love stepping outside my comfort zone and trying something new!

I am so honored and excited to be part of this AMAZING team and look forward to sharing my 7 Dots creations with you. Thanks so much to Tusia for this awesome opportunity!
