Meet our Designers: Tara and Magda
7 Dots Studio is not only the colorful paper – it is a grup of wonderful people, who joined our a bit crazy project.
Today and in upcoming posts I will introduce our fantastic group of talented designers, whose enthusiasm and talent will provide you loads of inspiration and make your creative juices flowing:)
First, meet two romantic ladies, who are in love in shabby style, layers and details: Tara Orr form Canada and Magdalena Klementowicz from Poland.
I live in Beautiful British Columbia, Canada with my gorgeous husband of 10 years and our three amazing kids. My eldest son just turned 7, my youngest son is 5 and a half and my daughter is 3. They are the heart and soul of my projects. I am now a SAHM to my precious little kiddos but before that, I worked as a webmaster in the Technology industry for many years and loved it. I think I will return to the ‘work’ force one day but for now, my job is at home, raising my kids (and squeezing in a little scrapping on the side).
Random Facts about Me: I have a degree in Psychology, a green belt in karate, love horseback riding (although its been way too long since I last rode), I order a grande dark from Starbucks almost every day, prefer chocolate to any other sweet – although I’ll eat any other sweet over chips/salty stuff any day, I’m the oldest of 3 siblings, gave up hope of maintaining my ‘Monica from Friends’ (as my husband would describe) cleaning habit once I had kids of my own, have earned more grey hairs and wrinkes in the past 7 years than I could have imagined and love my family more than anything else on the face of this earth!
I started scrapbooking in November 2008. Instant addiction. I love papercrafting – LOVE it. I create because it challenges me, it relaxes me and it lets me escape into a world of creativity that I adore. I love to explore different techniques and styles but I feel most natural working with a shabby chic genre with lots of distressing!
If you want to take a peek at some of my work, please stop by my blog for a visit – I’d love to have you!
Magdalena Klementowicz is our Polish talent – here you can read more about her:
My name is Magda and I am from Poland. I like crafting, reading, jazz and klezmer music and I love spending time with my little daughter, Lena.
I have been scrapping since December 2010 and I enjoy every minute of my hobby.
My style is very eclectic, somethimes shabby chic and romantic, sometimes vintage, but I always include lots of layers and details.
I am very, very slow scrapper. I usually spend about a week on one layout, I need two or three nights to create one card. I spend a lot of time thinking about my project, looking for patterned papers and other products or adding a little details on my project. I have obsession with blooms ; -) and love white color. I scrap at night after my girl goes to sleep.
I create, because … I just try to be creative.
I am so proud and honoured to be a part of 7 Dots Studio Design Team. Thank you.
