DESIGN TEAM SPOTLIGHT: Sharon Rogers




This month we are pleased to introduce you to another amazing Design Team Member. Sharon Rogers is an extreamly talented paper artist that Gecko Galz has the honor of having her as one of our design team members.
Here is a bit about this talented lady!

How long have you been paper crafting?
At least half my life – so that is about 20 years – I started basic rubber stamping and went on from there!

  
What is your favorite kind of projects to do?
I predominately love making cards but I have also started to get into journal pages and I do love making little art dolls.


In the industry who do you most admire and why?
There are lots of very talented crafters who I am on DT’s with & who I follow so this is a very hard question which I can’t answer LOL!

  
What brands (besides Gecko Galz) do you enjoy working with?
Vera Lane Studio Digital Stamps & Bombshell Stamps are just a few of my favourite stamp stores, various Etsy Store Digital Papers & I love Dylusions Inks & also Ranger Distress Stains

 
What is the one thing in your crafting tote that you cannot live without?
My Copic Markers!


Where have you been published?
Scrapbook News & Review - Online


What is the best thing about being on the Gecko Galz Design team?
All the fabulous Gecko Galz products we get to ‘showcase’ each month – always such an amazing variety!


What is your favorite scrapbook shop and where is it located?
My favourite shop is online as I don’t have a lot of time to get to actual shops – Craft Online – an Aussie online store.


How would you describe your crafting style?
Varied – LOL – I love all sorts of styles.

If you could have a job in the crafting world what would it be and why?
Maybe something to do with online publishing or a magazine.

  
Share your blog site:  


Any last words for our friends and followers?

You can always learn something new or gain some useful tip from someone – you can never know everything about crafting – there is always something new being created or discovered!!
