Meet April and Chiqui

Name: April Yap

Location: Singapore
Designer for: 12x12

Hello! My name is April Yap, and I live in Singapore with the most wonderful man in my life. We will be celebrating our 16th anniversary in a few months' time. We have 3 children, Sarah (14), Glenn (10) and Keane (8). 
I have been scrapbooking for 2 years now, and I am totally addicted!! I love taking photos and telling stories about our life's little moments. Creating precious keepsakes (for my family) like this make me very very happy! I love it most when they picked up the albums, read and enjoyed our stories again and again.
Now I am a huge fan of pretty pp, stamps, tags, diecuts and and all sorts of embellies! Playing with and mixing them is a super fun process that I really enjoy!

Name: Chiqui Gutierrez
Location: Philippines
Designer for: 12x12


I am
Chiqui Gutierrez from the tropical islands of the Philippines. I
m in my
mid thirties, and been married to my hubby Herbert for 7 years. He recently got
interested in photography so I get lots of pictures to scrap. We have 2
adorable daughters, Julia Francesca is 6 and Anneliese is 3 years old. I am a
Pediatrician by profession, and a certified scrapaholic for 2 years now. I
admit I
m addicted to this wonderful hobby! I love how the
layouts tell the story behind the picture. I consider myself a newbie in the
scrapbooking world so I guess I
m still discovering my
style. Most of my layouts are of the clean and simple kind but I also love the
shabby-chic look. I tend to experiment with different techniques but
handcutting, layering, & distressing are some of my favorites. I absolutely
love working with sketches and I am really thrilled and honored to be part of
the Design Team of Inspired Blueprints. I hope I
ll be
able to inspire you as much as others have inspired me.
