Get To Know Iris Babao Uy

Good morning dear readers!

Today is a very, very special day - as we will be introducing to you all ( that is, in the rarest of chances that you still havent heard of her yet!) to a very talented young lady who has captured our hearts (and deep admiration!) with her beautiful layouts and gorgeous paper crafting projects!

The secret is out , so everyone - please do extend a warm Emirati welcome to our next overseas-based workshop teacher - Iris Babao Uy!

IRIS BABAO UY is a designer based in The Philippines who specializes in teaching classes that marries the beauty of mixed media with traditional scrapbooking. Iris is known for her shabby chic and romantic style but also enjoys working with bold patterns and striking colors. She is currently a designer for Webster’s Pages, Basic Grey, and Hambly Screen Prints. She was also named as one of the first two Prima Masters. Currently she is also a part of the team behind Aussie Scrapsource and is creating mixed media projects for Dusty Attic and WOW embossing powders.

Iris’ work has been published many times in international magazines and craft books. Her blog has been featured in “Artful blogging” – a high profile publication from Sommerset Studios, and she was also named as one of the Memory Makers Masters in 2008.

Iris has been teaching classes for years now all over Asia and she will soon be teaching in Europe as well. A generous teacher when it comes to sharing her knowledge and techniques with both beginner and advanced scrappers.
You can see more of Iris’ work in her blog: http://www.irisbabaouy.typepad.com/

We are so excited as Iris will be conducting a series of classes at Paper Lane ! Please do watch out for our succeeding posts detailing her workshops as we'd be so delighted to have you there!

Have a great day everyone!
