Plus a Design Team Call & a New Design Team Member!






Before we begin please JOIN OUR BLOG AS AN OFFICIAL FOLLOWER!
This will ENSURE YOU DON'T MISS OUT ON ANY OF OUR FANTASTIC PRIZES!!


Just this month alone we have gained 
60 GOOGLE FRIEND CONNECT FOLLOWERS!
How are we doing it?  Here's how!!!


Today we also announce a new Design Team Member!  
Arantzazu Sangrador from Spain!!  
Sadly one of our lovely ladies has had to step down earlier
 than expected so Arantzazu has agreed to join us!  


Here is what she has to say about herself...

"Hello! I am Arantzazu & live in the Basque Country (Spain ).
I started to scrap 4 years ago & have slowly been learning new techniques
 &  finding my style!  I love mixed media -  when I discovered it I felt like Pandora's
 box was opened & with it my imagination!!   I enjoy dirty hands & making things from scratch.  
 I love colour & texture & love taking part in challenges because they challenge ME
 I am grateful to be part of this fabulous team - Helen thank you very much for trusting me !
Find me on my blog HERE,  on Facebook HERE, Instagram HERE & Pinterest HERE."

And now for some more very exciting news!!
We have our DESIGN TEAM CALL READY!


THIS CALL IS FOR OUR NEXT TERM - JULY 2015 - JAN 2016
 (excluding December as we are closing every December from now on - so 6 months total}
Replies will only be sent out to the selected candidates before the end of April.

If you have what we need I hope you will apply!
You get plenty of exposure here at SATW & this year you even get a great discount 
with our sponsors, not to mention working with some of the most inspiring ladies
 in this industry & making new friends all around the world!!

SO ON WITH THIS MONTH'S REVEAL!

Hello everyone! Spring & Fall are setting in around the world, depending on where you find
yourself living, but something most of us all love is the beach!  I don't enjoy swimming in
the ocean to be honest as our beaches are very public here & full of "beautiful people"
so I feel a bit self-conscious but I am blessed to have a view of the sea every day
I am here in Durban, South Africa, & to even get to smell the ocean in the wind
at times.  Surely there is no-one in this world who doesn't appreciate nature?

Our mood board host this month is Hera Sugitani from Brazil, which is a very hot country, 
blessed by Nature & full of beaches!  Her mood board comes jam-packed with texture
& evocative elements.  You could be inspired by the lovely blues, whites & sandy colours
 or by the images of anchors & sea-horses, or even just with a photo of you or someone
 you love at the beach.  Almost ALL of us have those photos somewhere no?!  

This mood board shows us mitred corners, sandstone blocks, grids, water foam, ombre 
effects, typography, wood grain, circles, shells, stars, starfish, snails, ndoro shapes, glass, 
metal, hinges, latches, spots, studs, organic shapes, rope, distressed wood & sand.
We all got VERY EXCITED behind the scenes with this one & we are expecting
one humdinger of a month from you all, our precious players!

To me this mood board speaks of love, peace, calm, unity & balance so why not
do an art journal page based on how this board makes you feel?  It is up to you
to be inspired however the wind takes you!!  


IF COMMENTS ARE IMPORTANT TO YOU PLEASE TRY NOT TO LEAVE YOUR
ENTRY TO THE ELEVENTH HOUR AS IT'S TOUGH FOR US TO HAVE 50 PLUS
ENTRIES POURING IN AT THE LAST MINUTE & WE DON'T WANT TO DISAPPOINT 
YOU IF WE DON'T MAKE IT ROUND TO YOUR ENTRY IN GOOD TIME!

Here is Hera with a little about herself...

"Hello friends! My name is Hera Sugitani & I'm your host for April. 
I am a passionate teacher of scrapbooking and Portuguese literature.
I am from & live in Brazil - a very hot country with many fantastic beaches, 
which inspired the mood board I created for you for April!   For me, scrapbooking 
is how I express myself & record my family memories. It is a labour of love for me.  
You can find my blog linked to my name above, & also follow me on  on Facebook
Pinterest and Instagram.  I am so excited to see what you create & will be
 personally popping in on every one of you this month - I cannot wait!!
