Hello CE friends!  I want to thank everyone who applied for this term! It was so hard to pick from all the talent so please , please don’t give up. I can only manage 10 DT members  at a time and I am hoping next year I will have a little more help so that I can add more.  We are having another call at the end of May for the 6 month term starting July-December.  So I urge you to try again then.

Get ready because starting January 1st  you will see a ton of inspiration from these amazingly talented ladies! Below is the new and returning ladies on the CE team.

Amy Voorthius

 

amy

Hello, my name is Amy Voorthuis and I live in The Netherlands with the love of my life Jeroen.
We are proud parents to a handsome son named Kevin and we have a cute little dog {Fibi}, that I call my “little princess”.
Scrapbooking became my creative outlet about 11 years ago, I eat, sleep and breath everything that has to do with crafting.
I love shabby chic, vintage & mixed media style. But I also love to try everything new there is in this paper crafting world 😉
I mostly make girly layout’s that’s never hard with six nieces. Last August I became aunty Amy for a seventh time but now it’s a little boy yeahh. Once in a while I want to think outside the box and make a masculine layout.
I feel very honored to be part of the Creative Embellishments design team for the next 6 months and I can’t wait to get started.
Currently I design for: Cheery Lynn Designs, Maja Design, My Creative Scrapbook, Studio 75 & Tresors de Luxe
Love Amy
Sarah Routledge
sarah

My name is Sarah Routledge and I live in Ontario, Canada. I started scrapbooking several years ago, and was immediately addicted and soon moved into other forms of papercrafting.  I absolutely love the creative process of putting together a scrapbook page, tag, or off-the-page project. I love trying different  materials and new techniques – especially mixed media. I would call by style vintage, shabby chic – but I love trying different things, so I’m not afraid to step outside my comfort zone! Although most of my work is layouts or altered items, I love using my scrapbooking supplies for other crafty projects, including canvases, art journalling, tags, ATCs, mini-albums, home/seasonal decor, etc. If you’d like to see my designs, please stop by my blog: Scattered Pictures and Memories.

Cheers!

I am Nirvana, I lived in the South of France with my husband and my 17-year-old son!

Since every girl, I am attracted by the manual activities, a passion passed on(transmitted) by my dad who is a painter!!! In nursery school already, everybody said that I shall make the School of Fine Arts, but I always wanted that that remains a passion it is made since November, 2007!!

MY AFFAIR WITH CRAFTS FIRST STARTED WITH JEWELRY MAKING AND EVER SINCE THEN MY WORLD HAS CHANGED AND ONLY PROGRESSED TO OTHER CRAFTS. IT IS WITH MANY YEARS OF CRAFTING THAT I HAVE DISCOVERED THAT I AM A MIXED MEDIA ARTIST. I LOVE TO PLAY WITH ALL MEDIUM AND CREATING CRAFTY PROJECTS FROM SCRATCH. MY LOVE AND PASSION FOR ART CAN ONLY GROW AND WITH EACH NEW PROJECT I ACCOMPLISH I PUSH MYSELF TO LEARN MORE AND MORE NEW TECHNIQUES. WITH ART THE IMPOSSIBLE BECOMES POSSIBLE AND THE STARS ARE NO LIMIT.

Erin Reed

I am a military wife, a stay at home mom (my children give me wonderful pictures to scrap with), 2 boys and 2 girls. My first love is my family, they mean everything to me. My second love is crafting, especially scrapbooking, but I also love DIY, cards, mixed media, and to alter items. I guess if you had to label my style it would be layered, romantic, shabby chic, mixed media, and pop art. I have been called the Queen of Layers!! I love to teach in person and on-line to educate others in my love for this craft.

Asia Lubera

Hi my name is Asia (Aisha)and Im from Poland. My day  starts with jogging which is my other passion .  I have been scrapbooking for 2 years. In mix media style  I m only one year but I know this is something what I love.  IN my projects I mix few styles- retro , fantasy and steampunk with a Little bit of magic.I use dark , deep Colours , textures , flowers and lots of metal parts  . The most fun for me is to use in my art small watch parts , gears and cogs .Usually I create  mix media canvas , boxes and altered items.
Scrapbooking is for me self- expression.I like that every project tell different story and show different emotions.
Im so happy that I can share with people my passion and my imagination .
Thank You for this chance that I can work with this beautiful products and with so talented design group.

My name is Shona Keehn and I am from British Columbia, Canada. I have 3 children, lots of grand babies and a wonderful husband of 29 years.I have been scrapping for many years but have just found my scrappy style in the last couple of years, Shabby Chic with a bit of grunge, and it is definitely something that I change up lots as I am always trying new techniques. OH yes and I am definitely addicted, there is just something about getting my hands all dirty during a project. I am thrilled to be part of the Creative Embellishment team! I get so much inspiration from everyone in the scrapping world and I hope that you can get some from me.
Maggi Harding

Hi, I am Maggi Harding, and I am really excited to be part of the Creative Embellishments Design Team!  My home is in eastern North Carolina, but, sometimes I claim the world as home.  I have spent most of my life wandering, as a child with my parents because my Dad was in the Army, and, as an adult, because I wanted to.  By the time I was 18 I had been to 9 different schools, lived in France, Japan,Germany, Pennsylvania, Kentucky and North Carolina.

 

My husband and I share our home with our two standard poodles, or spoos as we call them.  We have a 5 year old, Nika, and an almost 2 year old, Tisha.  We love to travel and do so mostly in our RV so that our spoos can accompany us wherever we go.  We have been fromKey West, Florida to Fairbanks, Alaska and from the Pacific shores of California to the Atlantic shores of North Carolina in our well travelled motorhome!

 

I discovered scrapbooking in 2005 when I decided to make scrapbooks for my two best friends from college.  It quickly became my passion and something that I spend hours doing and never grow tired of my efforts.

 

My style is eclectic, I do a little bit of everything but if pinned down, I would say vintage styled layouts are what I love the most.  I love color, and red, black and ivory always bring me joy.  For me, scrapbooking is an artistic adventure, what can I create, how can I make this piece of paper come to life?  Scrapbooking has awakened my “inner artist” and  satisfies the creative side of my brain that was long neglected during my career as a CPA.  I am really happy to be a stay at home retired crazy scrapbook lady!

Laetitia Pauchet

laetitia

My name is Laëtitia PAUCHET, trinity on the blogosphere. I’m French. I live in Dunkirk, in the North of France with my concubbin and my two boys (3 years and 1 year).

I started doing pages in 2012 further to the birth of my son but I really began at the end of 2013 during my maternity leave. Thanks to my parental leave, I have time to scrap.

My number one topic is my children. I like more particularly the mixed media and the thorough work. When I begin a page, I use systematically the gesso, neocolors II, masks…

I like having my fingers dirty with paints and mists 😀 I also love to make videos and tutorials.

To share this passion with other people passionated like me enchants me enormously. I would like to say thank you to Creative Embellishments for giving me the chance to join the Dream Team !!!

I am a SAHM of 5 wonderfully active and creative kids who inspire me every day…when they’re not driving me insane. :-D I love everything to do with paper crafting and enjoy creating tags, cards, layouts, altered art and mixed media projects. I’m an eclectic scrapper and I vary styles regularly since I love everything from CAS to grungy and distressed. Some of my favorite manufacturers are Webster’s Pages, Prima, October Afternoon, Graphic 45, Bo Bunny, MME…the list could go on! lol

Nicolle Kramer

nicolle

My name is Nicolle Kramer (part owner of CE) and I have been scrapbooking for around 10 yrs. I am a stay at home mom of 4 children. I have 2 boy ages 22,21 and 2 girls as well ages 18 and 12. My hubby Michael (other owner) . ;)  of 22 yrs is extremely supportive of my hobby. We both love the arts.  I enjoy creating layouts using  many different styles of scrapping. The internet is where I look for inspiration through sketches, color challenges and browsing some really talented ladies blogs.  I find it  fun to learn new techniques and follow trends. I’d like to think I am an ever evolving scrapper who loves using bright bold colors, textures and lots of embellishments to enhance the story being told on my page in a unique and creative way that keeps the viewer continually discovering new details every time they see one of my pieces. I also love to alter different mediums and create tags. I also make the occasional card.  I love everything paper or paper related.

There ya have it friends!! I am so thankful to have such a talented bunch of sweet ladies on the team. Thank you so much for being on our team! I know you all will be super inspired by their projects! I know I will. xoxox
