Guest Designer Natalie Jane


I am Natalie Jane and am absolutely ecstatic to be guesting with We R Memory Keepers this month.

Here’s a little about me🙂

Am a 31yrold mother of 1…..and maid, cleaner, cook, lecturer, teacher, fun-pal. By day, I am a full-time Chemistry Teacher and by eve I can be found in my study creating, reading, or tidying the never-ending mess. I live in England and spend most of that wishing I could move to my homeland of Scotland.

I was introduced to scrapbooking in 2006 then it became a full on obsession (read Hobby) in 2009. I find it cathartic. You can currently find me in Scrap365 Magazine, Sarah Hurley Designs and my challenge blog – Punky Scraps (

I love colour so this particular collection was lovely to work with, so lovely, in fact, I made three projects. (See my blog for details of them).

I wanted to use all the papers and so I cut out squares of each paper. I mounted some squares and used the others to create windows. I accented the windows with faux-stitching to make them stand out. Used the cardstock chipboard as an embellishment for the title.


I like to cut out shapes to add to a cluster of embellishments and We R Memory Keepers Feelin’ Groovy paper was perfect for that.
