We are excited to feature our new members of the Studio Calico Creative Team. We're looking forward to seeing their inspiring projects in the gallery and blog, and hope you are, too! Today, we're getting to know Heba Alsibai! Be sure to follow her here at SC to see more of her work and keep up with her.
Hello, everyone! My name is Heba; I’m a mother of two teenagers and a wife to a wonderful husband. My husband and I own a small medical supply company that keeps my husband traveling and me working from home. I love that I’m able to work from home; I get to see my kids go off to school and welcome them home when they get back. I live in the beautiful state of Georgia, far from the hustle and bustle of Atlanta. I'm a total homebody that loves to read and loves to watch reruns of Friends. But by far my favorite thing to do is crafting. I also love sharing my crafty projects on my YouTube channel and Instagram.
Back in 2001 When I gave birth to my first born, I started keeping a little scrapbook album for him. It wasn’t your traditional scrapbook album. It was more of journaling milestones and documenting pictures with dates. I also did the same with my daughter once she was born. But in 2007, I moved to Dubai and became really good friends with my next door neighbor who was an avid scrapbooker. Once she shared her beautiful scrapbooking layouts with me, I was hooked.
My crafting journey started with creating traditional scrapbooking layouts. But in 2011, I found Project Life® and I completely switch to pocket page memory keeping. I also immediately subscribed to Studio Calico’s Documenter Kit and documented our daily lives in pocket pages. Using Studio Caicos kits really helped me tell my stories while keeping my layouts simple and easy to put together.
In 2016, I found traveler’s notebooks! :) I was so excited to be able to create layouts outside the pocket again. I didn’t know how much I missed creating layouts until I found traveler’s notebooks. I love the small size of these notebooks; you'll never feel overwhelmed or intimidated by them. You can create a spread in no time at all. Some of my favorite memories were recorded in a traveler’s notebook.
After being a huge fan and subscriber to Studio Calico for so long, you can only imagine how excited I am to be a part of their Creative Team. It’s such an honor to be able to share my projects with you. I hope my projects inspire to use your Studio Calico kits in your pocket pages or traveler’s notebooks.
