Meet today's guest, Nate !

Hello ! Welcome back, today we have a little something different for you. We've changed the format of the Guest Designer post to more of an interview format so you get to know a little more about our guest and what really makes them tick ! Our first guest to use this format is Nate who was the winner of the Colour, Texture, Shape challenge. So, let's move on to learn a little more about our guest ....

Hello everyone ! 
I am Nate, I live in France and I am passionate about crafting ! 
Thanks to all the Stamps and Stencils team for inviting me to be their guest. 
It's a great opportunity for me to show you the world I've created through my blog. 
I discovered crafting 15 years ago and fell in love when I discovered the craft shops in Paris, the magazines that were published and the blogs that I saw. This is when my blog started in 2007, Le Scrap de Nate.  
I quickly found my style and with time this took on another dimension. I began by creating pages, cards, mini albums, frames  - keepsakes for my family. I took part in challenges on various blogs that motivated me and eventually became a DT member for a French team - Infiniment Scrap, also Scrapsanctuary and currently Sandee and Amelie's.
During this period of discovery I've tested various techniques and products: inks, hot and cold embossing, various papers including G45, pastes, paints, masks and stamps. I am currently also on the Decoart program. 
After trying different styles I must say, with time, my inspiration has moved towards recycling objects to transform and pat ! I moved on to Steampunk and also vintage, which I love. 
I have some projects to share with you that I have entered into some of the Stamps and Stencils challenges:

Thank you everyone for the invitation to join you for today !
