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 !!!
My name is Debbie Standard and I am a critical care trauma nurse of twenty years, mother to four and grandmother to 11, whose favorite outlet is scrap booking. I live in north central Texas where we recently moved to be closer to family and a slower paced life style. I started scrapping with my oldest daughter about seventeen years ago and still love it. I love seeing how I have evolved over the years in my work. I have been published with Memory Makers, Scrapbook and Cards Today, Scrapbook Trends and Scrapbook Trend Cards as well as Scrap 365. I have worked on many online blog Design Teams over the years making both cards and layouts. I was on the Core’dinations Cardstock Design Team for several years and am currently on the Design Team for CSI and now proud to say I am working with Creative Embellishments. I’m excited to work with this awesome product and this talented group of ladies and can’t wait to get started.
Hello, my name is Lainie Michel and I have been scrapping since December of 2012. I am married to an awesome man, have three grown daughters, a young son and a grandson. As I am a stay at home mom, I find that scrapbooking is definitely a cathartic way to creatively express myself. Furthermore, it has opened a door to a lovely community of people who encourage and inspire each other in so many artistic ways. My style is all over the place and I love the whole spectrum of design. I like to switch it up a lot and try new stuff, but a sure staple in my repertoire is chipboard because it has so many incredible uses. I am very thankful to be a part of this team and I am looking forward to inspiring, learning and growing with you.
Hi all! My name is Tara Peterson Age, I currently live in the metro Atlanta area with my amazing husband and best friend, Aaron. I am a full time, fun loving mom to a gorgeous 8 month old baby girl, Harlyn Piper, and I can not forget my 4 year old Australian Shepherd Siberian Husky named Roscoe. (Yes, he was my first born furry son!)
As a young child I always had an interest in the creative arts, starting with pottery, and slowly over the past 5 years venturing into mixed media, which is where I find the most inspiration. I love giving new life to old, everyday items. As well as thinking way outside the box! Characterizing my style is one I find difficult, I do not limit myself, nor do I discriminate any type of craft. I love trying new things, doing it all, experimenting and getting messy!
I can express myself freely through my art. This is my escape. My ‘Take me to Never land’.
I am super excited to be a part of the Creative Embellishments Design Team. I hope you’re able to gain inspiration, let go of your fears and create lifetimes memories!
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!
Here are our amazing returning members!!
My name is Kelley Rooks. I am single mom from Oregon. I have enjoyed crafting in one form or another since I was a kid. My favorite thing to do at this time is altered art. My style is always evolving and changing and is somewhat eclectic. I tend to gravitate towards grunge and steampunk, but I also I do love to create and in other styles and mix them together. My favorite products to work with are inks in any form, paints, metals, and chipboard. I am so grateful to be a part of this team and see where this creative journey takes me.
Hello, my name is Tammy Henderson. I have 2 wonderful teenagers that keep me going and a wonderful husband; we have been married for 20yrs. I live in the Bootheel area of MO. I’m just a small town girl having a blast in the scrapping world! I have been doing this wonderful craft since 2005 and have been hooked every since. I love all types of art and the different mediums. I think that is the thing that has kept me in love with this craft, because it’s not the same ole thing. Anything goes and the sky is the limit. I absolutely love getting to combine pictures of my loved ones, with my favorite thing in the world ART! I love every minute of it! My favorite embellies to use is chippies and flowers!! I currently design for Flying Unicorn and Creative Embellishments.
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.
I am a SAHM of 5 wonderfully active and creative kids who inspire me every day…when they’re not driving me insane. 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
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 21,20 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.
Well there you have it!! All gorgeous,sweet and a talented bunch of ladies!! Stay tuned for some amazing creations starting May 1st.
