Welcome Wagon!



We are thrilled to introduce a new member to our fabulous Design Team! I {Sam} met this wonderful lady back in October when I had the opportunity to attend the Fairytale event in Holland...we instantly clicked...I felt lucky her English was MUCH better than my Dutch...from there, the rest is history! I am pleased to introduce you to Loes DeGroot, a very fine lady...

Loes & Sam at CHA-W January 2012

A little bit about Loes:

I am Loes de Groot, I have been married to Bert for almost 21 years now, and together we have 3 kids.
We live in the north of Holland in a small village called Appingedam. My husband and I run a cattle farm here.

I started scrapbooking in 2006, and I love scrapbooking because it' so much fun! The colors, the photographing, the sketches, the different kinds of paper, and of course the smell of the paper : ) I know it's a little bit crazy...I have desgined for two years now for a scrapbook store here in the Netherlands, Paper & Pictures and a magazine which they produce, Cards & Much More. I also teach workshops in their shop at at their event, the Fairytale Event. My work has also been published in Scrapbook Pages from Memory Makers and I have created for two sketch blog's.

As photography is one of my passions, I recently started studying at the photo academy, and I am so excited to take my skills to the next level! If I haven't said it before, I love photography!

I also love to read a good book and to sit by the fireplace with my husband and enjoy a good glass of wine.....

I'm so honored to be at this team and i can't wait to play with Authentique's beautiful papers!



Below are a few projects Loes has created prior to joining our Design Team...we're certain you'll love her work as much as we do!
