October’s Design Team Guest Member – Yvett Jensen

Hi, all! My name is Yvett Jensen.

 

I was very flattered to be invited to be a guest designer for Lavinia Stamps. 

 

I was born and raised in Sweden, but I’ve lived in Denmark now for 21 years with my husband and my “almost” grown up children, an 18-year-old girl and a 16-year-old boy.

 

I have been creatively crafting ever since I can remember. But I have always had a passion for drawing, stamping and colouring. But through the years I have also created mixed media, albums, boxes and other projects. 

 

I started just sitting by myself and creating cards and things, then I discovered the many hobby stores, scrapbooking groups and made new “scrapbooking” friends.

 

As my kids got older, I started dedicating more and more of my spare time to scrapbooking and stamping. I discovered and started visiting scrapbooking conventions and demonstrations…so much inspiration everywhere and my creativity just took flight.

 

About five years ago, I started teaching and demonstrating, among other things, techniques in stamping and scene-building at workshops and courses in Denmark and Sweden. I enjoy teaching others about my passion.

 

I am also a representative for a small, organic stamp producer in Sweden. I create designs with her stamps in order to demonstrate her collection.

 

I discovered Lavinia Stamps about four years ago and immediately fell in love with their stamps. I adore crafting scenes using Lavinia stamps. They’re simply fantastic to work with – and beautifully crafted by Tracy.

 

I look forward to sharing my work with you all!
