Introducing Our July Guest Designer - Sofia Ehrich

Hey everyone, we have a very special guest with us here at SFTIO this month. But she's not really a guest, just a guest designer...

Sofia Ehrich has been part of the SFTIO family for a long time! As a neighbor and friend, she's been in my life since she was six years old. As a fellow crafter, we've been scrapbooking together for about 5 years.

And now, she's not only my amazing assistant - anticipating every need just before I get to it (remember Radar O'Reilly, anyone?) but she's also coordinator of the Design Team for our BRAND NEW Teen program, launching this fall (with a top secret name...shhh...) and is the mastermind behind this month's kit theme.

Hello my fellow creative people! My name is Sofia Ehrich. I live in Santa Monica (best place in the world) right next to the amazing Rachel Kaufman and go to Santa Monica High School. I am 17 years old, a Creating Keepsakes Teen Talent Search competition runner up and I LOVE to scrapbook! My mom got me into scrapbooking when I was 4. We would go on family trips and scrapbook memories. 

When Rachel found out that I loved to scrapbook, she took me out and that is when the creativity flowed. Ever since then its been going up hill, and I’ve learned that I am really into design and pictures. I also love movies and watching TV. My friends make fun of me because IMDB is my favorite app on my phone. I love, love, love to travel, (you probably noticed from my layouts), I love going to Starbucks and taking walks with my dog, Fawnzy. To me, The Beatles were the greatest band ever and I am marrying Justin Timberlake. Also, I currently work for Scrapbooking for the Inside Out, I put together the beautiful kits and I very much enjoy using them also.

A little fun fact, when I went to CHA with the SFTIO team this winter, I actually thought of using the word communication for a kit. I feel like it is such a fun word and there is a lot to talk about especially with how much social media we work with on a daily basis. There are so many forms of communication too: email, Facebook, instant messaging, talking on the phone, in person, snail mail, animals, babies, people…. The list can go on and on. I hope that you have as much fun with this kit as I did. 

And in case I haven't mentioned it, she's one great scrapbooker. I am so proud of what Sofia has accomplished so far and I'll just say, Scrapbook Industry, watch out!

Sofia created some wonderful layouts about communicating across the miles and using social networking to stay connected that l absolutely love. Here are a couple to whet your whistle...

For more, please come check out the GDT gallery for this month. And stay tuned for a feature on Sofia going behind the scenes on one of her LOs later this month.

Thanks 'My Sofia'!
