Hello CE friends! Today I want to announce our New Design Team for the September to December term. First, I want to thank everyone who applied. As usual it is always hard picking through all the amazing talent. I was sort of bummed a bit this time around because there weren’t too many CAS style scrappers and I want to show our products on every style. I am hoping next time around we get more that apply. Thanks to everyone who applied. Our next DT call will be at the end of October please try again then.
Now on to our reveal. I will announce the newbies first then the returning. Feel free to stop by their blogs and see their amazing creations!!
Hi, my name is Toni Burks and I was born and raised in California. Have been scrapbooking for about 25 years and started really falling in love with mixed media and altered art about 5 years ago. I come from a very artsy family, musicians, dancers, and artists so being passionate about creativity is just natural to me. My style tends to be grungy, distressed, vintage and I love to work with anything messy. Inks, paints, modeling paste are some of my favorite mediums to work with and they work beautifully on Creative Embellishment chipboard pieces. I’m so excited to be a part of the Creative Embellishment DT and looking forward to inspiring and getting messy with all of you.
I am Mayoori, living in beautiful state of Wasington, with my two teenage daughters and very supportive husband. I have been crafting for years but plunged into scrapbooking after coming to USA three years back . Now I am totally involved in it and have recently dived into the deep ocean of mixed media.
My Name is Karan Gerber and I love scrapbooking. although i enjoy creating paper projects of all kinds, i believe my true passion lies in 12×12 layouts.
I reside in small Hamlet of 700 people in south western Ontario, Canada, with my family. My husband, Glenn of 20 years and our two boys; Elijah 18 and Galen 16. My passion for this hobby definitely shows in the projects I love to create and you will often see the faces of my loved ones on my layouts. I love chunky and lumpy and feel I can best describe my style as detail oriented of which i love to incorporate textures and layers of dimension whenever i can. From canvas, paper, to chipboard, fabric. I enjoy tucking tags for journal spots and hidden elements that the reader can pull out and learn more about the people in the photo. I am so thrilled to be part of the team again at Creative Embellishments and look forward to inspiring you with my Creativity.
As a young child I always had an interest in the creative arts, starting with pottery, and slowly over the past five 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 all are able to gain inspiration, let go of your fears and create lifetimes of 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!
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 !!!
