Get To Know Janja Albrecht

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us. We started a new feature several weeks ago that we are continuing with today on the Blog.  We would like to give you a closer look at our designers.  It's  a "get to know the design team"  and today we are featuring Janja Albrecht.

Hello, my name is Janja. I live in Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, with my husband. We are together over 41 years. Mom of two grown-up children, and a grandma of three wonderful grandchildren, all boys.
Welcome to Slovenia, the only country with the word LOVE in its name! It is located in the heart of Europe, on the sunny side of the Alps.
I have been crafting for as long as I can remember, and I do all different types of craft. Seriously, I began my paper crafting journey when I retired.  
I have always loved to paint and draw, and paper has always been my favorite material. I'm addicted to it, so that instead of souvenirs, I carry home from different journeys all kinds of papers.
 
Socializing with grandchildren and reading fairy tales is reflected on my creations.
I always try to create a story on cards. First, I make a sketch for the entire scene on a white paper. Then I choose the colors, and start creating.
 
Animals are my favorite motives. Among the CottageCutz dies there are many of them, and they are all very cute. CottageCutz dies can be beautifully combined to each other.
I also like vivid colors. You will recognize my cards by them.

Since February 2016,  I have been a member of the design team at The Scrapping Cottage. During this time, a lot of cards were created. These are some of my favorites.

Absolutely love all of your cards but would love to know how you did the puppy with the log. Did you color the pieces with copics? The detail is absolutely incredible. ~ hugs, Sherry
