Yana Smakula

My name is Yana Smakula, I’m 20-smth years old from a town Ternopil in western Ukraine. I enjoy scrapbooking and I mostly scrapbook about our travels (I often take long pauses from scrapbooking when I have no new travel photos to scrapbook). My other passion is cardmaking – I enjoy trying new products and techniques, experimenting and creating in different styles. I’m very much into stamping and die cutting and I enjoy creating Clean & Simple and well as heavily layered cards!
