And here are the remaining 6 Design Team members:
Hi! My name is Jolaine. I am from the Dominican Republic but live in upstate New York in the beautiful Hudson Valley region. I have been happily married for nine years to the love of my life. I am a mom to two sweet kiddos who are 5 and 1. I'm also a full time teacher working with newly arrived immigrants in elementary school. My days are pretty busy but when I manage to get a couple of minutes free, I love to scrapbook! I'm inspired by my amazing family, my beautiful surroundings, vintage findings and beautiful scrappy supplies. When scrapbooking, I often reach for hot glue, ink, and Diet Coke!
Hi, my name is Marielle Leblanc (Marilou64 on the boards) , I live in Dieppe, New Brunswick with my husband of 8 years and our 2 great little guys. Gabriel is 8 and Felix is 5 ½ , you’ll see them often on my layouts ! I work part time as a nurse in the out patients clinic of my local hospital.
I have always been a crafty person but really got addicted to scrapbooking after the birth of Gabriel in 2002. I love the "me" time it creates and I love the beautiful things I can create with my hands, imagination and gorgeous papers!
I have been lucky enough to have been published in magazines like Canadian Scrapbooker, Canadian Scrapbooker Basics , Scrapbook Extra and Scrapbooks and cards today. I just finish a year term on the Pebbles Inc. design team, as well as DT on a sketch blog.
I find CC to be such a friendly place to find inspiration and to have fun and the kits and supplies from the store are always awesome. I love being part of this little family!!!
Just a small-town girl who moved to the big city and met her Prince Charming. Now living happily ever after in Dallas , Texas , with two little girls and two crazy dogs. While I currently spend my days working as a corporate communications manager, my passion is papercrafts. To me, there’s nothing better than escaping to my craft room for a few hours and playing with paper, scissors and glue.
When I’m not working or crafting, I enjoy reading, travel, shopping (a little too much!) and playing on Facebook. While I’ve been known to dabble in many kinds of crafts – from gift wrapping to hair bows – I love scrapbooking most of all because it combines creativity with storytelling and memories of my family and friends. What could be better than that?!
I’ve been popping in and out of the Coordinates Collections message boards for over a year because (a) I’m obsessed with kits, and (b) this site has the best games and challenges I’ve seen anywhere. I’m so happy to be part of this team and look forward to creating some wonderful things together!
Ever wonder what happens when two northerners (who love the snow) move to the south? And then meet? And fall in love? And get married? And then adopt two cats? And then have triplets? Well, if that question has been keeping you up at night, you'll find your answer by getting to know me.
I started scrapbooking "for real" in 2006, but had to take a break from scrapbooking when the girls were born ... but I never took a break from taking photos (ok, except when I dropped my camera on the concrete floor) ... uh, or from collecting scrap supplies. I've really been getting back into it for a few months now, and I think the break was good for me - refreshing, really. And I appreciate it a lot more now, after being away. I found CC when I first started scrapbooking, so it's my scrapbooking "home." The community here is my scrapbooking family, and I'm really looking forward to working with the design team.
My name is Stacey Kingman and I live in College Station, Texas. It’s the best town ever.
I am married to Doug, a professor at Sam Houston State University.
I have four homeschooled kids, Darby (15), Jolie (12), Cody (8), and Corey (6).
I love to make lists.
I’ve been scrapbooking since Darby was six months old, when I had a small, flat tub of supplies that I carried with me to crops...now I have a scrap room that is full of carefully labeled patterned paper, punches, ribbon, and stickers!
I often use several photos on a page and mix black-and-white and color photos.
My family is used to me always writing things on random bits of paper to use as journaling for my layouts.
I enjoy gardening – in my garden, zinnias are my favorite flower and zucchini is my favorite vegetable.
Reading gets me into time-management trouble all the time. I’m a Jane Austen fan, love Ted DekKer, re-read The Chronicles of Narnia every couple of years, and can’t pass up good historical fiction.
Other things I do - photography, Words With Friends, and looking for the perfect place to put my couch.
If organizing was a sport, I’d want to be the team captain. I get happy over labeling, containerizing, and sorting any kind of stuff.
I must have 8 ½ hours of sleep every night.
I live in Utah (though my heart is still in California) with my hubby and two little ones – Maggie, age 3, and Dalton, age 1. Maggie likes stickers and Dalton likes to eat whatever I’m working on. My husband is a very creative guy and will make the occasional card.
I started working with Coordinates Collections in 2005. Since then I’ve helped with everything from shipping to kit design. I administer the store and message board and also get to do fun stuff like contests, challenges, and giveaways. Jamie and I are sisters-in-law – little did I know when I married her brother I’d be doing this!
