Today we are introducing our new Creative Team, please join me in welcoming these talented scrappers to Stuck?! Sketches!
I originally hail from Cheticamp, a beautiful Acadian village right on the Cabot Trail in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia (Canada). I now reside in Dieppe, New Brunswick with my husband, Mathieu, our seven-year old son, Louis-Olivier, our two-year old daughter, Éloïse, and our cat, Caillou. Since 2007, I am a public servant by day and a full-fledged scrapper by night. Scrapbooking has become an integral part of my life. I try doing something scrapbook-related every day, may it be working on a layout, browsing through online galleries and/or reading scrapbook magazines. Published in a few editions of Canadian Scrapbooker, as well as in France's own Histoires de Pages and most recently Scrapbook & Cards Today, my style has been known to be called "rustic", which is fine by me as it enables me to relish in fattening things up with layers, dimension, tearing and texture. Other than scrapbooking, I have rekindled a romance with reading through a monthly book club I joined at work in February 2012. I also tutor, teach voice classes and sing most weekends at a few church services around the area.
Hello there from Huntsville, Ontario. Hi, my name is Danielle Ramirez-Diakun, my friends all call me Danie. I am married to my best friend and husband. Our 7 year old Little is my primary focus to scrap. I have been a memory keeper since birth but started scrapbooking in 2011. I am beyond thrilled to be joining Laura and her uber talented Design Team. You can checkout more details at my BLOG http://scrappydanie.blogspot.ca
Hi! My name is Jenessa, and I'm a misplaced Californian currently living in Dallas, Texas with my husband Noé, our 7-year old son Santiago and our 5-year old daughter Paolina. I discovered scrapbooking in 1995, and I made my first album using construction paper and rubber cement...an absolute archival disaster! Fast forward to the present, and I've become quite passionate about this constantly evolving art form.Having always endeavored in arts & crafts such as drawing, painting and cross-stitching, scrapbooking (as well as other paper crafts) has been such a natural progression for me. My husband has been incredibly supportive of my hobby obsession by allowing me to utilize most of our family room as my own personal crafting area, as well as hanging out with the kids when I need some creative therapy.
Hi everyone, I’m Monique Liedtke and I live in Europe, in The Netherlands, with my husband of 19 years and our 3 kids (a daughter 19, and two sons: 16 and 11). I started scrapbooking about 12 years ago and am totally addicted; there’s nothing I’d rather do! I don’t have my own scrap room, but I more or less claimed just about the whole house! I’m lucky enough to be on the design teams of a few of my favorite manufacturers (Doodlebug, Imaginisce and Pretty Little Studio) and wish I would be able to spend every day scrapping from morning till night, but as that’s not possible I also work part-time in a small HR office in town.
My scrapbooking style can be described as colorful and detailed with lots of straight lines. My favorite techniques are layering, sewing (both with the sewing machine and by hand) and using lots of Silhouette cuts. If you want to see my projects, please visit my blog: www.moniquesscrapbook.blogspot.com. I’m thrilled to be part of the new Stuck?! Sketches team!
I'm Nicole from Canada's beautiful East coast! I share my home with my fiance Yves and our fur baby Sugar the cat. I love reading, music (yes! I do sing in the shower sometimes!), social game nights with friends, road trips and spending as much time in my scrap room as I can! I have a shabby chic romantic style and I love to dabble with mixed media techniques. I started scrapbooking in 2004, started blogging about it in 2011 and it has been a marvelous adventure ever since! I have had many wonderful designing opportunities throughout the years and I am now thrilled to join the fabulous world of Stuck?!Sketches! I really hope that you will enjoy my creations! If so, you are welcome to visit my blog Scrap-Utopia to see more.
Hello. My name is Vivian Lake. I've been creating since 1998. My husband knew what he was getting into when he married me in 2001. Since that time I've gone from "large" photos with the whole page covered to smaller photos and lots of negative space. My other favorite is die cuts and handmade flowers. My style is generally clean and orderly with layers of embellishments. Some of you may even call it "simple" since I don't use mixed media (although I greatly admire those who do). Lastly, my favorite subject is my son. I love the challenge of "boy" layouts but I'm sure I'm biased. I look forward to getting to know you!!
We also have some returning CT members, the following members will be staying on to inspire for another term! Welcome back ladies!
And of course, me!
Look forward to this new team sharing inspiration with you beginning April 1st!
Thank you for visiting today!!
