We announced we've added a handful of talented women to our Garden Girl Design Team. Over the next few days we will be taking some time to share more about them with you! Today? Get to know Lilith Eeckels
My name: Lilith Eeckels
About me: I was born in Belgium on January 26th 1979. As a child I grew up in South Africa but my family moved to the Grand Duchy of Luxemburg when I was 12. I got married in 2000 and am currently living in the South of Belgium near Bastogne. I have the Belgian nationality but am South African at heart and miss my home country every day. I started scrapbooking just after I got married as I wanted to make a special album. It become an "addiction" 5 years ago and I can't see myself not playing with paper. As I work full-time and have 4 kids aged between 3 and 9, I have to be very organised. I have always been a planner and this helps me to find time to scrapbook.
About my family: I got married in 2000 and my husband and I have been blessed with 4 sweet but mischievous boys: Damien and Noé (9 years old), Robin (6) and Elouan (3). They can be found on most of my layouts.
About my style: I usually make 12*12 layouts. I have always found it hard to define my style and just call it Lilith style. I love trying out new techniques and changing things once in while. I do like white space and I love layering. I love making mini albums too but as they are timing consuming I often create them during my holidays.
My top 5 papercrafting essentials: My cameo. I love this machine and even though I don't like spending too much money on machines I thought it'd be a good investment and it was. Paper: I love pretty designs and the versatility of it. Mists/inks: before buying mists I had a bottle of India Ink and used that to make splatters. I love adding them to my layouts. Foam dots: If I don't have any I panic. I love having elements pop up off my pages! Photos: It might not be a papercrafting essential but I couldn't start if I didn't have a photo that meant something special to me. It doesn't have to be a perfect photo but a snapshot of a perfect, unforgettable memory.
On any given day you might find me in my office. The only time I can work is in the evening! I prepare my lessons and once that is done I squeeze in some me time.
