Colors on layout (if you wish to bring a matching photo) light colors, with turquoise, red, light yellow, moss green, soft light blue etc. Safe choice can be a black and white photo, light/soft.

Ingvild Bolme
Hi, my name is Ingvild Bolme, and I am a Norwegian scrapbooker who comes from Stavanger on the west coast of Norway, and my dear Esben and I have a 4 year old girl named Iselina who also is my biggest scrapbook inspiration.
I have a huge passion for everything within art, design and photo, and is now totally addicted to scrapbooking and everything within this amazing craft. I have scrapbooked since early 2007, and also won the Norwegian Championship in Scrapbooking the same year. Started to blog about my scrapbook passion early 2008, and a dream came true when I was invited to join Prima’s design team in July the same year. Have had the honour of being on several design teams and guest for many brands and kit clubs etc since, and been published over 100 times in print magazines etc. My styles is often recognized by all the details I love to add and the romantic or shabby chic style I often use, even though I also like to vary my style after pictures I scrap etc. Love to try out new techniques and to add on as many details and layers as possible, but to still keep airy spots on my works.
After 3 amazing years on Prima’s design team, I was offered the opportunity to become a teacher for Prima, a Prima Educator, which was an opportunity I truly appreciated and of course gladly accepted. I started to teach in 2007, and now after a bit break from teaching, I am now looking forward to begin this journey again with Prima, to travel the world around to meet all those amazing scrappers out there! I can’t wait to get started! And beside this wonderful journey which is about to start, another dream is also about to come true; my very first product release with Prima which will be released this CHA! There will be two embellish releases with lots of different designs. And for months I have worked on Comfort-Craft Tools, which is an ergonomic scrapbook tool line, and finally it will be released. And each person who attend my classes will get the opportunity to try out this brand new tool line during my classes. This will be fun, fun fun, and I cant wait to meet you all!

welcome our next Scraptastic teacher

Donna Downey!!

Donna Downey is a bestselling author, instructor and all-around creative force in the crafting industry. In 2000, she got into scrapbooking as an extension of her paper product and photography addiction. This was only the beginning. From working as a popular columnist for Simple Scrapbooks magazine, to traveling the world inspiring women to push the boundaries of their own creativity, to developing her first fabric scrapbooking line with Prima, Donna is consistently on the leading edge of all things cool related to memory preservation art.
As a craft-media artist, Donna is a born experimenter, blending and transforming both traditional and unexpected items into meaningful pieces of self expression. A former elementary school teacher, she has synthesized her first love of teaching with her passion for craft and brings this to women via workshops at scrapbook stores and events, writing books, and through her popular blog and website.
Donna lives in North Carolina with her husband, and is a mother of three exceptionally blonde children, and one blonde dog. She also has recently opened Donna Downey Studios located in Charlotte, NC.

Some of my favorites projects of Donna:
