Meet our Guest Designer for Sketch #52...

The wonderfully talented Aussie Scrapper Steph Devlin!!! 

We are so excited to have her here at Inspired Blueprints this month.  We love and admire her talent so much!!!  You have seen her beautiful work in all the major scrapbook/paper crafting magazines and she designs for many of the top scrapbooking manufacturers including: Webster's Pages, Dusty Attic and The Color Room. 

Here is a little bit about Steph and her take on sketch #52...

Hi I'm Steph. I am a mum of Emma (7) and Madison (3) and wife to a beautiful guy named Mark. I am a qualified Interior Decorator and Color Consultant. I am a stay at home mum, and have been since Emma was born in 2003. I am addicted to color and love anything girly, usually adorned with flourishes, text and flowers. My usual scrapping time is during the day, when Madi takes her naps, and I'm blessed enough to have a gorgeous studio with lots of natural light filtered through. I cannot for the life of me scrap at night !!!!!!!

Just a quick scrappy history, I started scrapping in 2004 and entered a design team comp that year with For Keeps Magazine (Australia). Through that I won an Award in Design and a year on the Design Team. In 2005 I entered the same comp. This time being blessed enough to be asked on the Elite Team. In 2006 I spent contracted to the magazine and co-authored a book called "Traditions" and a calendar. From 2007 up to now I have been freelancing between the 3 Australian magazines, writing articles and submitting layouts. In 2007 I was asked to join Aussie Scrap Source, Australia's leading wholesaler as part of their Design Team. Late in 2008, Danielle Thompson contacted me and invited me to join her DT for Kitschy Digitals who I designed with for 2 years. 2010 looks like a fantastic year with an invitation to join Webster's Pages DT, Dusty Attic DT & The Color Room. I have also been published in Creating Keepsakes both in the US & Australia and just recently S.M.M. Scrapbooking in Sweden and Scrapbook Trends UK.

Thanks to Inspired Blueprints for asking me to guest design, I loved the sketch and your site is so inspiring!
