Hello and welcome to our second day of Design Team introductions.

Welcome back...
Natsuko Suzuki
"Hi everyone, I'm Natsuko from Japan. I've been scrapping for 7 years now, and I'm still deeply in love:) Most of my layouts include my loved ones especially my daughter who is now in 5th grade. Scrapbooking not only makes me happy but it's also very therapeutic.That's why I join workshops and events especially for moms. I love looking at other people's layouts too, by reading their blog or imagining what kind of story is hidden there. I love both colorful and shabby chic style. I don't want to limit myself so I'm not hesitant to try new techniques or style. I love travelling, taking pictures and meeting new people from all over the world (especially scrappers !!) It's such an honour to be a member of this team and I'm so excited !! Thank you xxx"

And for today's inspiration, Natsuko has created the amazing layout below inspired by the

"Cuddly Bears"
"Happy New Year!!!
A brand new challenge for a brand new year ♡
I chose the middle row down, DIE CUT, WINTER THEME and PAPER CLIP. 
I thought this collection from Crate Paper was perfect for this layout. I used white cardstock for the background and used a 12 inch bubble stencil and put light modeling paste and glitter on it. After drying it, I dabbed some paint. I love the texture and the shiny look (sorry it doesn't show much in the pictures). I machine stitched around the paper and decorated the edges with gold washi tape.

Thank you ♡"
