Catherine Labeeu alias Shirel


Belgian origin, I am 35 and live in Switzerland with my son and my companion. Adept creative hobbies forever (I got up at night to paint at the age of 5 years), I discovered scrapbooking in 2004 and, like many of you, have been contaminated by the virus produced from the first page! I discovered Mixed Media in 2007 and I am now split between these two passions! A journalist by training, I dedicate myself entirely to my life as an artist and animates many workshops all around France, Belgium and Switzerland. In 2011, I created Studio Shirel to launch a concept of online workshops and video. This is in line with this project that I decided, few months ago, to create the online workshop Pop Colours. I’m one of several DT: L’Encre et L’Image, Scrapbuttons, Kit de Somni and Prima Marketing.

I love colors, textures, bohemian style, creating something from nothing, discovering new things, learning techniques, smell of paints, writting about my everyday life, art-journaling and many many others.

Stephanie Schütze


My name is Stephanie Schütze (39), born in Germany, living in Switzerland with my family. Since the birth of my second child I have taken a time out from my job as psychologist in the usability field and enjoy the additional time to be more creative. What just began as a hobby developed to a passion and a way to be an artist. I am a scrapbooker with a great touch of mixed media and an art journaler with a passion to draw. I love to scrap and to create layouts with mixed media techniques, draw cards and create all kinds of decoration. As long as color and paper are in play I am happy. My new adventures is to design stamps. There are four collections published by Whiff of Joy and there are more to come soon in 2014. I also love to teach classes to give away my fun and inspirations.

I love to create my own backgrounds, sometimes very clean and graphical, sometimes with lots of paint and different media and very colorful but sometimes also very soft. You notice that I definitely do not want to commit myself to a style.

At this time I love to create backgrounds with lot’s of different media to create a deep. I always look at the colors which I am currently using and most oft he time I try to end up with a soft and balanced effect. That is why they look a little bit like tiny shabby chic look. My layout suppose transmit a mood or feeling, that is way I choose my fotos which have emotions and movements. In addition I try to tell a story with my layouts. Sometimes I create a story from scratch which allows me to be creative in this art.

Riikka Kovasin


My name is Riikka Kovasin. I live in Helsinki, the capital of Finland with my husband and our two daughters. They are a constant source of inspiration and give topics for pages. I also love to scrapbook the everyday and the little things.

I found the wonderful world of patterned papers in autumn 2009, when my older daughter was 6 months old. From layering papers my style has evolved to more “mixed media” so I usually use stamping, paints and mists in my layouts. I’m happiest when I can combine my love for the beautiful products with the possibility to get messy with different paint media. I also love to experiment with different, non-scrapbooking related products.

I have been fortunate enough to get chosen to different design teams:
365 Scrap, Craft Stamper, 3rd Eye, Scrap Around the World, Mixed Media Place, CSI, and Paperilla PaperHaus

Nadia Cannizzo


My name is Nadia Cannizzo, and I was born and raised in Greece before settling in Sydney, Australia in 1989. I just turned 35, and married my husband almost 15 years ago. Together we live in the suburbs of Sydney raising our 3 daughters (7, 5 & 6 months) while trying to stay sane! I am a Primary School teacher and absolutely love my work, but its on hold right now while I raise my children. I TRY to create something almost every day, and I am like a child on Christmas morning when a parcel of goodies arrives at my doorstep. I create depending on how I feel that day and my personality and mood are reflected in my work.

Currently, I am more than honored to be on the Design Team for Donna Salazar Designs, Marion Smith Designs, Manor House Creations, 13arts and Prima Marketing.

I am a neat freak, impulsive, extremely loyal, obsessed with my children, super sensitive, a lover of movies and cooking, a wannabe world traveler (I have a bucket list yes!), a people lover, and extremely passionate about little children and their well-being.

Elena Sevrina


Hi, my name is Elena Sevrina. I live in St. Petersburg with my husband daughter and son. I’m an artsy scrapper, art journaler and mixed-media artist. Love it. I try to convey the important events of my life through art. I enjoy the whole process of making art-journal. From the beginning till the end. I like to use different techniques. Everything is spontaneous and I never know what I will get at the end. From my opinion this is the most exiting part of making an art-journals. I can describe my style as mixing of different styles. I don’t want to limit myself to the one style. I am happy to be here, thanks!

I’m proud to be in the Sodalicious and Paperdvizhnik design teams.

My name is Keren Tamir and I live in Canada. I am a wife to a wonderful husband who is very supportive of my scrapbooking and a mother of two amazing kids; a 13 year old boy and a 7 year old girl. I’ve been scrapbooking for 11 years and I mainly scrapbook about my family.

I love to create and experiment with many different mediums and techniques. I also love using lots of flowers and vines in my projects. My style is always evolving and that’s one of the things I love about this art.

One of the main reasons I started scrapbooking was to preserve memories and photos for my children. However over the couple of years, I’ve started to enjoy another aspect of scrapbooking. I love the artistic outlet that it gives me. I love to create and I’m passionate about what I do.

I’m delighted to join this amazing group of designers at Pop and Colors #3.

Anna Komenda

Hello. My name is Anna Komenda and I am from Poland. I live in the countryside, in the very heart od Świętokrzyskie Mountains with my two daughters, which are my constant inspiration, very patient husband and a beagle dog. I am a geologist, but rather that hammer I like working with scissors, paper and glue. I love creating projects with photos of my daughters. Mini albums and layouts are my favourite, because they tell the story and preserve so many good memories. I love creating colourful designs with a little touch of mess like splashes. I can’t define my style. One day I am in the mood for light, graphic designs and another I like to use mists, gesso and paints to create something “heavier”.

My design teams : 7 Dots Studio, Art Workshop, Studio Tekturek, Scrap Around The World challenge blog

I LOVE bright , fun, contrasting colours and often use a sewing machine and stamps on my work. I usually scrap 12×12 layouts but sometimes I will dabble in some art journalling or canvas work.

My name is Kasia Bogatko. I’m 32 and I live in Poland near the Baltic Sea. I’m interested in scrapbooking since the end of 2011 when I decided to make christmas cards for my friends and family. For last few years my style and interests have changed. Now a layout is my favourite form but sometimes I also make journaling pages or canvas. My projects are usually rich, full of layers and medias. I love using paints, mists or acrylic modeling paste. I love splashing, misting and distressing paper. I’m still learning. I love discovering new techniques. I would like to share my love to medias and show you that everybody can use them.

I make alter art, layouts , big and small picture frames and love to try new interesting forms ( lately pocket albums) .

Adrienne Ford 

Adrienne 043

Hello! My name is Adrienne Ford! A little bit about me : My scrapping/crafting journey began 4 years ago, by means of some stickers and a paper trimmer. f I could describe my work in one word it would be “refined.” I LOVE attention to detail and treat my projects like a puzzle with lots complex and unique pieces. I love that I have found myself and my place in this industry and feel at home with Mixed Media and lots of yummy art mediums!

Through lots of trial and error, I have come to find that I use my fingers more than a brush and I might do things that are a bit unconventional- things that would make Monet roll over in his grave. :) But even though there is paint splattered on the wall and some in even my hair, crafting has been one of the best things that has happened to me- I have had so much creative fun, and that’s all that matters right?!
