Ta-Da! Scrap365 blog hop



Hurray I can finally let everyone know my very exciting news! I am on the Design Team for the brand new UK based scrapbooking magazine Scrap365. Have you heard about Scrap365 yet? It's a new magazine from the people who publish Craft Stamper with a fabulous international design team. I am completely honoured to be part of such a talented team of designers and crafters. It's going to be great! Hello to everyone joining me on here on the trail of the Scrap365 blog hop - if you haven't joined in yet, have a hop and you could win a great prize. More on that later...

Let me introduce myself, my name is Emy Buxton and I live near Bristol in the U.K. I have worked as a freelance crafter since 1999 doing various jobs and have been scrapbooking since 2002. I used to write for a few magazines a while ago but I took a break to have three children. I now have less time to craft but lots of lovely photos to scrapbook.


Five things I love about scrapbooking...

1. I love COLOUR! My pages are usually packed full of colour - pattterned papers, paint, inks, mists.

2. I love stitching. I like to use hand and machine stitching on my pages. I am particularly excited about free-motion stitching at the moment. I have also started working on projects bringing scrapbooking and quilts together.

3. I love making and finding unusual embellishments. I make my own bits and bobs using Fimo, chipboard, felt, paper and ribbon. I also love scouring auction sites and flea markets for bits and pieces too. The border on the page below is made with drinking straws...


4. I love telling the stories behind the photos. I am striving to get better at journalling.

5.I love being creative. Scrapbooking brings together so many of my crafty loves. I'm always looking to learn new things too.


I hope that lets you know a bit about me and my scrapbooking. If you'd like to know more about Scrap365 then you can keep up to date on the magazine blog. You can also like them on Facebook and follow on Twitter (@scrap365mag.com). The magazine will be on the news-stands and available digitally on the 18th November.
