Introducing 4 new DT members
... and saying farewell to 5 others!

We are thrilled to announce the addition of 4 wonderful ladies to
the More Than Words Design Team for the rest of the year!

However, bringing new talent in means of course having to say goodbye
to some equally talented designers which is always very bittersweet.



Ekaterina, Jennifer, Kareen, Sanderijn & Elena we want to say THANK YOU
for your time and dedication over the past months
as well as your exceptionally beautiful creations based on our challenges!
We wish you all the best of what life has to offer in the future
with much creative inspiration and awesome opportunities.
You are simply fabulous and we are very grateful to have had you on our team!

And now, without further ado, let us introduce to you our 4 new designers:

"Hello!  Nice to meet you here on the More Than Words blog!  My name is Heike aka Heike's AugenBlick on the web.  I live in the oldest city of the beautiful country of The Netherlands  with my biggest supporter and love of my life, Jörgen.  Our love is crowned with 2 girls and 2 boys, 1 son-in-law and 3 lovely grandchildren.  I always worked as a stay-at-home-mom, but now, with 4 grown-up children, I have more time for me and my passion, scrapbooking. My style?  Hmm... vintage, modern, abstract... I don't know.  But one thing is for sure, it's always colourful.  I am thankful for this opportunity to scrap together with an amazing team."

"Hello, I'm Janice Nicholls and I live in a small country town in South Australia.  I have been scrapbooking for over 10 years. My 2 children and my family all feature in my work. I'm not sure that I have a particular style; I love to try new techniques... not always successful, but it's fun trying! I like creating with smaller photos, lots of layers, small clusters and leaving some white space. I also enjoy creating cards for family and friends. I have been very fortunate to be part of a few amazing design teams, had the opportunity to guest design and lucky enough to have had some of my layouts published in Scrapbook Memories and Scrapbook Creations.  I am honoured and very excited to be amongst this talented bunch of girls here at More Than Words!"

"Hi! My name is Mary and I live in Greece with my husband and our 3 children.  I met scrapbooking 3 years ago and since then it has been my obsession!  My style is mixed media, with a little vintage and some shabby chic touches. I usually create layouts, but I also love to design tags, cards, mini albums and canvases as well. I like to test my creative ability and always try to improve my skills. I find a lot of my inspiration in everyday life and when I scrap I feel so happy that I totally forget everything about me. I am so honoured to be on some wonderful design teams, and being a member on the More Than Words DT is like a dream come true to me!"

"Hello!  I'm Torsa, I live in Maryland, USA, with my husband and our 8 year old daughter.  My family is my backbone!  I am a software engineer by profession, but art is my passion, my dream and the something I breathe for. I have studied fine arts (oil painting, acrylics and charcoal) for almost 20 years! I have started my mixed media journey last year.  I love colours! I need almost 10 different shades of every colour.  My favorite colours are teal and blue. Nowadays, my new love are stamps!  I also adore art journaling and always try to depict a story through my creations.  I am addicted to coffee, and I love to spend hours at my studio with my coffee!  I am so excited to now be creating for the More Than Words blog!"
