New Designer: Elif Sahin

I am really excited to announce today that we have a new designer joining our team: Elif Sahin! She's been a great part of our creative team, making wonderful layouts, and now she's ready to share her awesome designs with you! Her eclectic, yet cohesive designs have always caught my eye. There's always something unique going on, and the combinations she comes up with are interesting and fun. I can't wait to see what she has to share with us!


I'll let Elif say a bit about herself:

Hi, I'm Elif from Turkey where scrapbooking is not so much known. I live in the capital where I also continue my study in the International Relations department. That is not quite close to my scrapbook hobby don't you think? I live with my family here and about a year ago a little cutie arrived in our family. That cutie, my sister's son, embellishes my layouts most of the time. I have always been interested in design, it was a part of my dream but I never thought that I could be a designer in the future. One day while surfing on the internet, I came across Pixel Scrapper. At that time I didn't know what scrapbooking was but I was in love with the tags, papers, and ohh with those flowers!.. I downloaded some of them and used them on the header of my blog at the time (which I can't even remember which blog was that, since I had many of them).

After a while, I noticed that Pixel Scrapper has started a forum on the website and I decided to join the community. It was exactly a year ago, in April of 2013. Since then I am eager to work on layouts and the design of scrapbook elements & papers for myself, and every day I was more passionate to work harder whenever I see and learn new things about scrapbooking. At this point I cannot forget my boyfriend's support and his encouragement to continue on designing whenever I am lose my enthusiasm. Also the ideas flowing in this community always give me new design ideas and tips, so how could I be away from designing! But I couldn't imagine that one day Marisa would call me to design for Pixel Scrapbook! It is so exciting for me to be in this lovely, friendly community where the hard work of hours and days are always appreciated.


You can support and encourage Elif here are Pixel Scrapper, and through her other internet homes:


And here's the first bundle she has to share with us.

Sweet Dreams Bundle

Welcome, Elif! Congratulations to you in your new role as a Pixel Scrapper designer! I have been noticing your lovely layouts, so I'm really excited to see what designs you will bring to us - this first kit is really cute, especially that cheeky little monkey! I think you & Melo would create something really special if you were to collaborate on a bundle (hint, hint!) Anyway, congratulations again!

Welcome to the team, Elif! I love your designs and I have to admit Sheila is not the only one drawing inspiration from your designs - your Snow Flurry kit injected some new energy into my Frozen bundle. Your kits are always well balanced, an art I still need to master, lol. And ofcourse, your layouts as a CT member are always outstanding. Can't wait to work with you!
