Introducing our very first Guest Designer here at Ella Bonella, it’s Philippa Mc Cray!
I came across Philippa’s work on social media & instantly fell in love with her colourful & playful style!
Here she is !!
“Hi there Ella Bonella friends! I have been a passionate (obsessive!) crafter for as long as I can remember, although I only got into scrapbooking a few years ago, after attending my first crop. I had no idea what I was letting myself in for! I’m never happier than when I’m at the table in my craft room, lost in the world of papers & paint. I live in the East Midlands & am Mum to 2 grown up daughters, whose exploits feature a lot in my scrapbook layouts!
Last year I decided to turn one of their bedrooms into a dedicated craft room where I can make as much mess as I like and close the door on it when I’m done! I enjoy trying out different techniques & working with new products. I find crafting a great way to zone out, relax & forget about the mundane everyday! I mostly create 12 x 12 layouts although anything that involves cutting, pasting & using pretty papers, paints & embellishments gets the thumbs up from me!
I love to record the everyday as well as special events & hope that one day my girls will appreciate the albums I’m creating for them. Having worked in the field of family history I gave it all up in 2017 to spend some time travelling around India with my youngest daughter. During the season I guide at a beautiful Palladian country house close to home, another of my happy places! I hope you enjoy what I have to share here at Ella Bonella & if you do you can find more of my work on Instagram, where I share under the name of philmacscraps.”
