My name is Agnieszka but in the scrapbooking world I go by Bellaidea. Together with my husband - I'm still dating him - we're taking care of our two treasures - a Girl and a Boy.
I love traveling, taking photos, African bush aroma, Pavlova dessert, old books, doilies, trips with friends to Italy, evenings by the fireplace, and reading books. I enjoy audiobooks during long distance drives, visiting the blogs of my friends, and praising people for their talent and creativity.
I scrapbook for many reasons! These are to preserve memories, to make my kids remember I always care about them, to have MY time when I need it, and to keep in touch with all my scrap-friends all over the world. My style is eclectic, romantic, with a shabby influence and I am addicted to Mixed Media.
You will find the following on many of my projects: lace, chipboard, doilies, gesso, turned corners, fussy cutting, in addition to the results of using stencils, misting, etc. I never forget the most important element of the page which is the photo and a story. Sometimes I hide my journaling when it`s very personal.
Over the last couple of years I have had the pleasure to design for various blog challenges and companies. Some of these include Inkido/Papercraft Scandinavia, Wycinanka, Scrap FX, Berry 71 Bleu, Scraps of Elegance, Scrap Around The World, Magenta, and Scrap 365. I also love to Guest Design for different companies. Currently I design for Bo Bunny, 13 Arts, Canvas Corp/Tattered Angels, and 7 Gypsies. I am proud to begin designing for Imaginarium Designs in 2015.
I publish my work on-line and have been published in magazines in Canada, USA, Germany, Australia, South Africa and UK. My favourite things to create are 12x12 layouts and canvas!
I teach classes at my LSS and I am excited that I will have a chance to teach at Scrapfest again.
If you have joined me for a class before, I hope you will find my new class inspiring and interesting! If you are joining me for the very first time, I can promise you fun, new experiments and...dirty fingers!
