Meet The Team - Part 2

Good Thursday morning to you all!

Another gorgeous day here in the Maritimes!  It's perfect weather to introduce more amazing, talented ladies from our Design Team!

Help me give a warm welcome to the following gals!

Cécile Lavoie

I am from Dieppe, New Brunswick, Canada and my husband, Serge and I, are the proud parents of our 17-year old son, Patrick. He is graduating from high school this year, which means more pictures to scrapbook.  I always needed to have a crafty hobby to relax after my regular days at work. I started knitting in my 20’s and then I made jewellery later on. In 2006, on the eve of my wedding, I discovered the beautiful art you could do with a bit of paper, glue and ink. I sold all my jewellery stuff and bought a Cricut right after the wedding so I could make a “nice” wedding album. I was hooked.  As I have quite a good collection of stamps, they are my “go to” tools when making cards. I also love to use ink and glitter on my cards. The creation process is a definitely my stress reliever but I also like the social aspect of this beautiful craft.

Diana Poirier

Hello! My name is Diana Poirier and I'm absolutely thrilled to be a part of LCOM Layout design team! I love paper, design, tidy spaces, scrapbooking, chocolate, bright colours, did I say scrapbooking?? LOL!!, my girlfriends, flowers, reading, writing, but most of all my husband, son and puppy and the wonderful life we have together! I've been scrapbooking now for 10 years and absolutely love how it makes me feel! My style - bright and clean! 

Elisa Delora

I'm the happily married Mom of 3 boys who fell in love with scrapping after my first son was born.  I've always been kind of artistic, but creativity was put on the back-burner while I was studying sciences.  Scrapping was introduced to me by my friend Marielle and has been a passion ever since.  I've never been much of a cardmaker, but there's always time to start.  My layouts are mostly boyish, colorful and bright and loud, like my boys!!  I love buttons, sewing and texture and I love hanging out online and at crops with kindred scrappy friends!  Other hobbies include running and cycling, mostly to stay in shape so the boys don't clobber and/or outrun this Mom!

Fernande Brideau

I live on the Acadian Peninsula in New Brunswick, Canada. I've been married to my very best friend for 28 years. We have a 23 years old daughter, Danika, a 19 years old son, Jérémie. We now have a wonderful four months old addition to the family: our lovely grandson, Tony.  I started scrapbooking six years ago and I have been hooked ever since. Scrapbooking is a therapy where I can really “escape” from the daily grind and relax. My style is mostly vintage. I start imagining the endless possibilities with any scrapbooking paper, embellishment or anything else I see that is “scrapbookable”. 

Gisèle Julien

Gisèle Julien taught in New Brunswick for 32 years and has been retired since June 2007.As her 1st trip after retirement, she took a scrapbooking cruise to the Caribbean. Scrapbooking has taken over her passion to create and to preserve family memories. It has been a big part of who she is since 2005 when this craft was introduce to her by a colleague. She has always been involved in crafts of some kind so this has fed her creativity.

Isabelle Elliott

I have always been crafty.  Ever since I can remember.  I have dabbled in all kinds of crafts, may it be painting ceramics way back when with my mom, woodworking, crocheting, sewing, quilting, cross-stitching, watercolouring... actually, name a sort of craft, and I've probably tried it!  And having done so many crafts throughout the years, I should have known that I soon as I scrapbooked for the first time, I would add it onto my list of crafty hobbies - but I honestly thought that I would make a gift and a few handmade cards and that would be it - HA!  For a good three years now, I have been papercrafting in some sort of way.  I have fallen in love in capturing life's event with mini albums, browsing through Pinterest for the ideas, and scrapping with friends I have made along the way.  I also enjoy to listen to e-books while crocheting.  I live in Moncton, NB, with my husband, our thirteen-year old son and our two dogs, Dougie and Lily.

Join us tomorrow as we share more Design Team Members with you!

Happy Scrapping!
