Meet our July Guest Designer - Mazlina

Meet our July Guest Designer - Mazlina:-

I am Mazlina Md Yusoff, currently living in Melbourne, Australia. I started scrapbooking since 2009, and was hooked since! It is really a great hobby to splurge in. It can be pricey sometimes (most of the time) but the outcomes are just priceless. I love how I can cherished the memories and turn it into something beautiful. My DH, DS & DD are my inspiration. I love to play with colorful papers, especially bright ones and love all things nice like flowers, butterflies and bling- bling. Thank you Butterfly Crafts for having me as your Guest Designer for July :)

Meet our June Guest Designer - Mia

Please welcome our June Guest Designer Mia:-

I am Mia Montalvan-Castrillo from the Philippines. I have been married for 11 years to my college sweetheart and have 4 princesses ages 9, 7, 3 and 8 months. I am the manager of our family household and a contributing writer to a local newspaper in our city. In between cooking, writing, taking my girls to school and generally taking care of our household, I scrap. And I'm pretty addicted to it. :-)

I started fixing my pictures when I was in high school but got really serious into it in 2004 after the birth of my 2nd daughter. I lean towards clean and simple scrapping with strong journaling. I scrap as a way of communicating to my loved ones. Nothing is more fulfilling than a hug and an appreciated word from a loved one who has just read my layout's journaling. Scrapping is my form of relaxation after a busy day. I love the creative process --- choosing papers, looking for the right embellishments, thinking of my journaling. I am SOO addicted that I think of journaling and layouts in the shower, while breastfeeding, before sleeping, while changing diapers, while cooking, and in almost every spare time I have. I scrapbook because it is how I am able to express my love for my husband and children. I scrapbook because I am a storyteller and I love telling the stories of my children.

You can find me at

Thank you so much Mia, it's a pleasure to have you design for us this month.
