Introducing New Designer June Swart

Hello and welcome to another day of our Design Team Introductions!!!
Please join us in welcoming another new member to our team,
talented designer,
June Swart
Welcome aboard June, we are excited to have you on the team and looking forward to the 
fascinating inspiration you will be sharing with us!
"Hi there! My name is June, and I am thrilled to be part of the SOS design team! Being an avid scrapbooker and cardmaker, I create something new almost every day. I enjoy making cards, but scrapbooking is my true passion. I started my first scrapbook as a teenager in the 1970s and I’ve created dozens of albums since. My style varies, as I love trying new techniques and crossing over ideas from cardmaking into scrapbooking. Mostly I just like to have fun, be creative, and add a little humor or something clever. I love to push my creativity, and as a former teacher I also like to encourage others to do the same. I started my blog, Super Stick Chick, just last year. I also have a strong following on Flickr as snazzyjj.

I am a stay-at-home mom who lives in Minnesota and is married to her sweetheart, Jeff. We have two wonderful sons (ages 16 and 28) and two playful cats. I love to do all sorts of papercrafting, gardening and Jazzercise."

"A New Year's Resolution"
"I am so excited to join the Scrap Our Stash team! This is the first time I’ve ever been on a design team. I am trilled and nervous, but most of all looking forward to enjoying this adventure with all of you. For my debut, I thought it would be fun to combine my two favorite hobbies – papercrafting and aerobics – with a traditional New Year’s Resolution. 

For the tic-tac-toe challenge, I used the first column:
Paint (gold)
5+ pattern papers
(I also “accidentally” did the top row with paint, die cuts & Simple Stories.)

Wanting to add a lot of energy to this page, I punched 1” circles from a bunch of pattern papers – mostly from Bobunny’s Believe collection (can you spot their tag on page?), but also a little Simple Stories, too. The gold stars on top were made with Inka Gold paint and a stencil. If you would like more detail on this page you can visit my blog

And here's a look at our challenge that inspired June's layout:
