April guest designer... Tracey!

 Hi I am Jodi, Owner/Designer at Corbett Creations Wood Veneers.  My laser cutting business is currently based in Canberra and has been something I have been working on for a little while now.  It came about because I would be constantly frustrated that I couldn't find the perfect title or embellishment to finish off layouts, projects or gifts.  I would then spend far too long trying to create the perfect embellishment and would sometimes rope my husband in to help me with all this cool tools in the man shed!  He has a love for wood also and together we purchased our laser.  I love being able to design and cut the perfect piece for someone to finish telling their story - the perfect title, the hard to find themed embellishment, a custom piece for the home or a meaningful gift, really makes me feel so happy because I know that their search is over and they have the perfect piece that they desired.  I love to create in wood, chipboard, cardstock, paper and acrylic with so many different
I can create so many embellishments and titles - the possibilities are endless.

Please welcome Tracey as our single page guest designer this month!

Hi, I’m Tracey from Melbourne, Australia and I am a mother , scrapbooker and world traveller.
I have been scrapping for about 14 years and my 18 year old son was my greatest source of inspiration until he became photo phobic about 4 years ago.   Now no-one is safe!   

As a former fitter & turner familiar with technical drawings, when I first started scrapping I favoured a very graphic style and struggled to even place my photo on an angel.   My style has evolved and I’m a big fan of mixed media.   It’s still rare though that I place my photo on an angle! 
My son grew his hair for 3 years before chopping it off and donating it to Variety Australia to be made into wigs for kids with cancer.   I’ve flipped the sketch to suit my photos and replaced 1 photo with an envelope to contain a braid of hair.

You have until the end of the month to play along with any - or all! - of our sketch challenges. Just post a link to your creation in our sidebar. If you share on social media, be sure to tag  #StickItDown. One winner from each sketch will be invited back as a guest designer. We also have Corbett Creations sponsoring a prize for one random participant! Corbett Creations is offering ONE randomly selected participant a $25 prize pack!
