Design Team Reveal

Meet our latest Scrap Our Stash Design Team member Danielle Gaudet
from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Danielle has been married to her high school sweetheart, Dwain, for almost 22 years. She says, "he is the most wonderfully supportive man and I am a very lucky SAHM to one beautiful teenage daughter and two of the cutest fur babies. They are my joy. "

Danielle has been scrapping for 14 years and has taught scrapbooking classes for about 6 years. She has no set time for scrapping, but she tries to do something creative every day. Whether it is catching up on blogs, looking at a scrapbooking magazine or just sketching her layouts. She likes to do something to keep her creative juices flowing. Danielle likes to sketch her designs ahead of time, so that when she is ready to make a page, she can quickly get started by choosing some papers and embellishments to match.

She says, “I have so many embellishments in my stash, oh wait, is it rubber stamps? Oh, maybe Thickers? Okay, so I have enough of everything to open a small store“. When asked how long her stash would survive if she were to do one layout per day she said, “I could probably do a good year or two, adhesives included. Oh, did I just admit that out loud?”

Danielle said she is very excited to have come across the Scrap Our Stash Challenge site and she is even more excited to be part of the Design Team. She has a lot of stash to scrap and she hopes to show creative ways to help others scrap their stash.

Danielle’s stash project is a photo that she had been wanting to scrap for a while.

"This Girl"

She says, “this Girl” not only makes her smile, she is the reason why Danielle scrapbooks. This page was made using up bits from a leftover kit club. Kit clubs are one of the reasons Danielle’s store, I mean room, is overstuffed with supplies. When she has time, she tries to pull pieces from her stash to create her own quick page kits. This makes for a fast start when creativity strikes. She already had the design, paper and embellishments ready to go when it came time to make this page.

We are looking forward to seeing what Danielle will contribute to the Scrap Your Stash Design Team. With the amount of stash she has she should be around for a long time. Please congratulate Danielle on being chosen as a part of the team - and don’t forget to check out her blog at Please check out the other design team members here and on their blogs.
