Hi. My name is Heather McMahon and I’m thrilled to be a part of The
Dusty Attic design team. I began scrapping about 15 years ago but I have only
been able to dedicate enough time to it in the last few years since my kids have
got older. I love the way this craft enables us to play while recording our family
stories at the same time. I tend to experiment with all sorts of styles.
I mainly create layouts but love doing off-the-page projects and cards as well.
At the moment I love arty styles – lots of paint, texture paste,
chippy and stencils – but ask me in another few months and it
could be something totally different!
My name is Nadia Cannizzo, I am 35 and I live in Sydney, Australia. I was born and raised in Greece, and I have been married to my Italian husband for 14 years now, and that is where my surname comes from! I have 3 young MUCH loved and MUCH wanted daughters, Maria Elena (6 ) and Ioanna (4) and my precious miracle baby Sofia who is just 6 months old. . Being a mum is what I always wanted to be and nothing fulfills me more than my children. By day I am a Primary School teacher, which I absolutely LOVE and at the moment I am working part time. I started scrapping about 3 years ago and consider this craft to be the longest hobby I have ever had! I am a Gemini after all , and can’t really stay interested in anything for very long. When not creating, I absolutely LOVE cooking, spending time with my family, and …believe it or not cleaning! I am a bit of a clean freak. My motto in life is “Nothing is impossible” !and I rarely take no for an answer 🙂
Nadia is also doing all of the Dusty Attic Sketch challenges
for us this year and has a challenge blog called Once Upon A Sketch

Just me, mum to three great kids, (most of the time) and wife to another, (yep he’s a big kid) and Grandie(De De)to my new pride and joy, my grandaughter Cadence. I love all things creative, I love to play with mixed media and whatever takes my fancy at the time but especially paper. I love to reuse, repurpose and recycle. I’m not scared to get my hands dirty, whether it be with glue, paint or other mediums or by rummaging through rusty metal and old stuff to find treasures. I hope you can find inspiration in what I love, as well as take a look behind the scenes as I share another part of my life – my family and friends and what they might be up too.
Hi, my name is Gabrielle Pollacco, I’m an avid scrapper, married mom of 2 girls and one scruffy Labradoodle. I’ve been scrapping for about 8 years now and have really come to love this artform and love to share my work and ideas through video tutorials. I am on a number of design teams including Websters Pages, Bo Bunny, Maja Design, Scrap365, and am a sponsored designer for My Little Yellow Bicycle, Tresors de Luxe and The Scrapbook Diaries. I have been on the Dusty Attic design team for a number of years now and am proud and honored to be on the team for another year! xo
DT Co-Ordinator and Admin
(Project Life style)
I started scrapbooking in 2004 when my middle son Erlendur asked me to help him with his grade 12 language arts “memory book” assignment.
I scrapbooked like most people do,hauling all of my stuff out of
the spare bedroom,to scrapbook in the kitchen,then hauled it back
to the spare bedroom. Then I came up with the idea, why not make
my living room dining room into a scrapbooking room. You see we
never did use that room, Once I made this into a scrapbooking
room it was used all the time. I don’t feel that I need to say a lot
about myself as you are going to be able to figure me out through
all of my layouts.
My name is Tina, I am married to my high school sweetheart, together for 31
years. I have been scrapbooking for about 7 years now and love every moment
of it, I was a card maker previous to this and sometimes I will make a card
or two just for fun. I have two adult children and 1 precious grandchild
Shontay who is 6 years old, Shontay is my most favoured scrapbooking subject
and therefore I love to create anything that is soft, pretty, pink, flowers
and of course some awesome Dusty Attic chipboard. I also love to create off
the page projects and love to try new things.
Hi, my name is Vicky Alberto (aka Simply Paper on some gallery sites) and I live in Alberta, Canada with my husband and three children. After having my last child, I decided not to return to a corporate marketing job so I could raise my three young children for a while. With ten years of experience in the marketing industry, scrapbooking was a natural extension of my work world and fills a creative void. I am now addicted to this fantastic art form that I will embrace for the rest of my life.
My blog address is http://simplypaperandcreativity.blogspot.ca where I chat about my work, the fantastic companies I am honoured to design for, and share my tutorials. I have been blogging for three years and am overwhelmed that I already have so many wonderful followers. This industry has such a deeply supportive and kind online network of ladies. I have “met” the most amazing people from all over the world through various online communities and have had the opportunity to “work” with some of the most talented ladies in the industry.
I am thrilled to have been asked to design for Dusty Attic for a second year!
HAVE AN AWESOME NEW YEAR’S DAY
AND WE WILL SEE YOU
TOMORROW WITH THE
NEW SKETCH CHALLENGE !!!
