Guest Designer Zanka!

My name is Zaneta Glowa aka Zanka. I'm thrilled and honored to be a guest designer at Berry71Bleu! I have lived in Sweden since 2003, but I’m actually Polish. I grew up in the south of Poland and I lived in Krakow for many years before moving over the Baltic Sea and settling here in Sweden for good. My adventure with scrapbooking started in 2010. It didn't take long before it became my big passion and a main consumer of my spare time. I guess I'm a rather typical woman of "our times," navigating through a combination of family life and a full-time job with a certain amount of commuting, so "spare time" is something of a luxury product. ;) Therefore, I really appreciate these moments, only for myself and my passion, in the late evenings when the rest of my family is asleep or busy with something else.

Currently, I'm a member of few fantastic Design Teams including Once Upon a Sketch, Scrap Friends, Scrap Around The World and Allt om scrap. You are warmly welcome to visit my blog at

I have received a beautiful tag from Marivic. Its colors and style totally enchanted me, so my whole page is inspired by it. From the current challenge mood board I picked the lucky theme, using the bingo images and the doily patterns.

Something Tattered

When Beth began hunting wallpaper for the bandboxes she was creating in 1990 it started a life of antiquing adventures and a passion for old paper. In 1993 Beth’s wallpaper covered boxes we featured in Victoria magazine and Beth’s sister Marilyn Krehbiel joined her in the pursuit. Marilyn’s business Hannah’s Treasures evolved into purveying historic wallpapers for movie sets. Beth peddled her boxes to the coast of California and settled in the west. In 1997 Beth married Peter Neumann, son of a letterpress printer, who shared Beth’s appreciation for the old paper arts. In 2011 Peter and Beth began Something Tattered in response to Beth’s newest pursuit, Wedding Paper designs from her vast collection of antique paper. In 2013 Something Tattered launched the current line of craft stamps and in 2014 the new antique wallpaper stamps were added bringing the adventure full circle. We hope you will share the passion.
