Introducing New Design Team Member, Jenni Calma

Hope your weekend was wonderful and relaxing!
Today we are excited to introduce our New Design Team Member:
Jenni Calma
"Hello! My name is Jenni Calma. I retired from Architecture to stay at home with my two children. A girl of 9 (going on 15) and a boy who is 6. I started keeping my first “scrapbooks” in college which were my studio sketchbooks. I used them more like smashbooks - that started my love of combining journaling with photos, drawings & paper. After the birth of my daughter, I bought a couple of books of Cathy Zielske’s and Ali Edward’s and fell in love!

My husband and I met in Architecture school and have been best friends for more than 21 years, married for 12. Aside from my craving to create, I am a typical Virgo, a little OCD, (except in my craft room where chaos is welcome), an avid reader, pinterest addict, a lover of dogs, peanut butter (preferably with chocolate), cardinals, red wine, anything Italian, and my children’s laughter.

I am delighted to be joining the Scrap Our Stash Challenge design team and to collaborate with such amazingly talented scrapbookers."

Jenni's Blog:  Paper Cardinal

Below is Jenni's take on our Red White and Blue Challenge!   
She has added so many wonderful details and elements to her page:

"But I've bought a big hat..."
Here is what Jenni shared about her layout:
"This is my first challenge as part of the DT at Scrap Our Stash and it was perfect timing for
scrapping some fun photos from the beach! I FINALLY used these red and white polka dot
doilies that have been in a kitchen drawer for 6 years! I used a kraft envelope to tuck my
hidden journaling into. I used stars from my stash that were wood veneer, chipboard,
stickers, metal stars and some that I water colored the same blue as the background!"


Scrap Our Stash is excited to have Jenni on our team and looking forward to her sharing her awesome projects with our followers!   Please join us in extending Jenni a warm welcome by leaving a message below.

I am sure you would all agree that, each of the Design Team Members we have introduced thus far, have shared some amazing projects inspired by our Red White & Blue Challenge. 
 Stop by tomorrow, when we will post yet another introduction and more beautiful inspiration!
