Delaina was asked to be part of the team not only because of her talent with design, her skill with fussy cutting and attention to detail, but also because she teaches techniques and step x step projects by video. We hope to show you one very soon – stay tuned.
My name is Delaina Burns. I love all things crafty and have as long as I can remember. I make draperies and bedding from home, part time, and scrap my nights, and weekends away. I live in a small town in Alabama with my husband of 27 years. I have 2 children, both of which are pretty grown up and preparing to leave the nest soon. I have a new kind of life approaching, so for therapy, I plan to play with gorgeous flowers, beautiful patterned papers, buttons and trims of all kinds. I have been scrapbooking for 5 years and have been fortunate enough to be on many different design teams and had several magazine and ezine publications. I adore teaching and turning others on to this craft that brings me so much pleasure. I feel blessed and excited to be included on this fantastic team.

Feast your eyes on Delaina’s very first MHC layout. The outlining, the stitching, and yes, there’s that fussy-cutting she is so clever at.
Products used: TSC Spring Awakening collection. MHC flowers: Tiana-white, The Tropics – Dusk & By the pool, Ballroom – Waltz.
Melinda was chosen because of her bold use of flowers and style. She is very clever at using flowers on her ‘boyish’ pages.
Hi my name is Melinda Thompson. I am married to a wonderful husband Brad of 11 years and we have two adorable boys, Riley 4 years, Finlay 2.5 years who are my constant source of inspiration. We live in Emerald in Central Queensland and just love the quiet country life.
I started scrapping around the time that Riley was born but only really became ‘serious’ about 2 years ago. Now I am hooked!! Scrapbooking to me is a wonderful combination of creative release and a way of recording our family’s memories. I love to scrap and journal about the little & insignificant details of my boy’s life. I do something scrap related nearly everyday, if I’m not scrapping I am thinking about it, browsing through magazines, online galleries and blogs or simply taking photos of my little boys.
My style is always evolving, not sure if I have a style as I love to experiment with new techniques, so it often depends on what I am scrapping or the challenge. Even though I have two boys, I am not afraid to use flowers on my layouts. But I do love to use any distressing technique, layering, stitching and non scrapping embellishments on my LO’s.
I have had a number of LO’s published with Scrapbooking Memories and have quite a few waiting to be published. I am currently on the Design Team for Colour Combos Galore, Purple Pumpkin and the Creative Team for Stuck Sketches?!
I am very honoured to be part of this Design Team and I look forward to sharing my work with you soon.
Products used: The Tropics – Seaside, Ballroom -Waltz, Magestic – Gemma.
