Hello, my name is Melanie Stanczyk. I’m so excited to join the design team for BlueMoon Scrapbooking. Ironically BlueMoon is also my favorite flavor of ice cream!
A little about me, I was born and raised in Wisconsin where I’m now raising my family. I live with my husband Scott and our 3 children, Brandon (12), Khila (9) and Kaden (5). We have 1 pet, a dog named Zoey. We enjoy spending the summers outdoors and the winters indoors. Weekends are usually spent as family time weather it be flea marketing, camping, festivities around town or a movie at home (or as my family says--more picture taking for scrapbook pages!)
I have been scrapbooking for 5 years. But my passion for creating goes well beyond that. I tend to use various techniques and incorporate them into my designs. I like to include the “unexpected, ” such as wood and fabric to my projects and really make them fun! I would describe my scrapbook style as shabby chic but really subject to change at any given time. I love the look of distressing, and I distress almost everything including my photos!
My favorite items to work with are mediums such as paint and mists, scrapbooking kits and vintage items. I absolutely love Tim Holtz/Ranger Industries products; they are a staple for my collection. Prima Marketing, Tattered Angels, Maya Road, Webster Pages and Melissa Frances are among my favorite manufactures.
I want my pages to tell a heartfelt story. In doing so, I love using beautiful embellishments to accent my photos. I think it’s very important to share my thoughts and feelings on paper so my photos can be remembered in a way that others can treasure in the future.
Please stop by my blog and say hi!
Thanks Melanie -we are excited to see you create with our latest Shining Madonna Kit!
