Design Team

Hello everyone!  I am Valerie Serfozo from the USA (Midwest).  I am blessed to live with my awesome husband, Mark, and our sweet Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Kiefer.  My love for scrapbooking began in early 2000, and has expanded to other types of paper-crafting and mixed media, along with my new found love of watercolors.  Through these creative outlets I find I can relax and forget about the things going on around me.  

When not in my studio I enjoy photography, reading, watching college sports, and playing with our dog.  I am a morning person, prefer the mountains over the beach, love the color pink, and enjoy living in a climate where we experience all four seasons.  I am fortunate to have known Leslie (the owner of C’est Magnifique Kits) since 2005. I am honored  to have been with her and C’est Magnifique Kits since it was just a dream.  It is such a joy to create with this awesome design team!  I also design for Blue Fern Studios.

I'm Camilla Ekman from southern Sweden. I work as a Montessori teacher and when I'm off work I do what I love most - that is of course scrapbooking. My favourite scrapping subjects are my two children, Julia and Filip, but also my sweet nieces and nephews. I have scrapped since early 2007 and enjoyed every minute of my hobby. 

Through scrapbooking I keep my memories alive but above all I get to be creative. I get to use my hands! I would say that I tend to scrap romantic and shabby. I love using flowers, bling swirls, lovely chipboard pieces and a lot of different dies and border punches. When I don't scrap I enjoy books, traveling and spending lots of time with friends. I am so proud and honoured to be a part of the C’est Magnifique Kit Club design team. I also design for Blue Fern Studios, Maja Design and Inzpira Magazine.

My name is Erin Blegen and I’m from the United States. I’ve been with my hubby Josh for 7 years and we have 3 children. We make our home on a poultry-based hobby farm specializing in chicken and duck heritage breeds. I have a deep interest in living a self-sustainable lifestyle and thoroughly enjoy gardening, canning, preserving, cooking, baking, and finding every which way to reduce waste and make a use of everything. 

And of course I love my year-round hobby of papercrafting! I love to mix it up with layouts, cards, tags, altered projects, and canvases- anything to keep me being creative and learning more about myself artistically.  I'm loving having the opportunity to collaborate with my sister Kelly Foster in designing the Magnifique Mixed Media kits for C'est Magnifique! I also currently design for Prima Marketing, Webster's Pages, and Blue Fern Studios.

Hello there, my name is Kelly Foster, from Minnesota (USA). I got started scrapbooking about 3 years ago, shortly after I had my first child. I have two little girls, ages 3, and 1…Lilah and Paisley. They are spritely little red headed girlies and they keep me on my toes, and provide me with endless inspiration. 

Most of my creations feature one or both of their sweet faces.  I am completely in love with mixed media scrapbooking, and am endlessly experimenting with new ideas, products, and techniques. I strive to always create a unique look on my projects by playing with unique colors and textures. I am currently enjoying sharing what I have learned through video tutorials, and am finding it very rewarding!  

Aside from scrapbooking, I love to sew, (although this hobby is sadly neglected due to lack of time.) I also really love to bake, cook, read, and shop.

Hi, my name is Vicky Alberto and I live in Alberta, Canada with my husband and three children. After having my last child, I decided not to return to a corporate marketing job so I could raise my three young children for a while. With ten years of experience in the marketing industry, scrapbooking was a natural extension of my work world and fills a creative void.  I am now addicted to this fantastic art form that I will embrace for the rest of my life. 

On my blog I chat about my work, the fantastic companies I am honoured to design for, and share my tutorials.  I have been blogging for three years and am overwhelmed that I already have so many wonderful followers. This industry has such a deeply supportive and kind online network of ladies.  I have “met” the most amazing people from all over the world through various online communities and have had the opportunity to "work" with some of the most talented ladies in the industry. 

I describe my style as “a little shabby and a lot of chic”.  For layout projects, I like each layout to look like a piece of art so I keep my titles short and journal on the back (sometimes) - to keep a clean look to my pages. I enjoy working with vintage/romantic style papers and adore adding distressed layers, doilies, chipboard and lots of flowers to my projects.   Some of my projects even feature handmade flowers and my tutorials are all listed on my blog.  I am thrilled to design for C'est Magnifique kits and that I get to "play" with so many fantastic international products!

 Hi! My name is Bonnie Friesen, aka Cinnabon, and I am from Manitoba Canada. I am thrilled to be part of the C'est Magnifique kits design team! This has always been a dream of mine since I started scrapbooking in 2008.   I am married to my husband for going on 28 years, and we have 2 wonderful adult children.  So we are "empty nesters".  I was a hairstylist for 25 yrs and retired a couple of years ago. I am currently a stay at home wife, which suits me just fine for now.  I discovered scrapbooking in the fall of 2008 and have not looked back since.  

I'm a total gadget junkie and "need" to try almost anything scrappy related.  I love being educated in new things and love trying new techniques, new products, and occasionally making my own flowers. Pink is my "go to" color of choice and feminine and shabby layouts are as natural to me as breathing.  I LOVE adding mixed media components to my layouts getting my hands all messy.  I tend to use a lot of chipboard and flowers for embellishments.  I am trying to get out of my comfort zone more often by doing more masculine layouts. 

Most of my subjects are great nieces and nephews with a bit of my own kids and other family. Scrapbooking for me, is more of an expression of art than preserving memories....which could totally change once I have my own grand children.  It is my desire that you will find inspiration of some kind from my work and that you will enjoy this craft as much as I do.  I recently was on 2 sketch blog design teams, and I am looking forward to working with the gorgeous kits from C'est Magnifique!

Hi, my name is Karita Vainio and I´m from Finland. I've been with my wonderful and supportive man for 24 years and we've been blessed with three beautiful children: two grown boys and one teenage girl.  I work as a nanny in a kindergarten.  I've been crafting since I was a little girl and came totally addicted  after I started my own blog in 2008. My blog is my happy place where I can share my love for paper crafting.  

I love scrapbooking and making cards. Also I like to create mixed media canvases and art journal pages time to time.  I think my style is kind of shabby and romantic.  In my creations, I love to create different kind of layers and details using gesso, mists and textures and lots of flowers and embellishments. My motto is more is better.  I've admired C`est Magnifique for a while now and I'm very honoured and excited to be a part of this amazing team.

Hi! My name is Kim Price and I live on the Central Coast of NSW, Australia. Happily married for 22 years, my husband Simon and I have two grown up daughters – one of whom still lives at home with us along with our extended family of two toy dogs and an extremely human Burmese cat.
I have been scrapbooking and papercrafting, you might say obsessively, for over 12 years having been employed in the industry and taught several classes on scrapbooking, mixed media, cardmaking and Copic coloring. I am Copic certified. I am a huge fan of mixed media styles and you will almost always find art mediums incorporated into my scrapbook creations.
In the past few years I have been extremely blessed to have been included on several Design and Creative Teams and I love nothing better than rising to a creative challenge. I am really excited to be beginning this brand new adventure with C’est Magnifique Kits working alongside these amazingly creative ladies on the Design Team, and I look forward to getting to know everyone better. 
 My name is Ulrika Blomfelt aka LillBlomman.  I live close to Stockholm, Sweden’s capital with my hubbie Anders, my son Viggo and our dog Molle. We all live in a cute yellow house just where the woods start and still it´s just 15 minutes to the city. Perfect!

When I´m not in my studio, I love to take care of my family, home and garden.  I like hanging out with friends and I also love to bake cookies and other yummy stuff.  And of course loving to play with my camera! But I would love to be a better photographer!  A secret dream, oh well not so secret any more, I have is to swim with Dolphins. I have also dreamt since I was a little girl to visit Australia and see Koalas.

I started scrapbooking in April 2006 and love it more and more for each day.  I feel the best when I get to create a few moments each day in my studio!  I love everything about scrapbooking and all that comes with it, like all the new friends I get to know.  Friends from all over the world!  It's so fun to go on live crops and create with like-minded people for a whole day! That gives me lot of energy and inspiration for my work.

I am a scrapbooker who creates in all genres as alter, layouts, cards and mixed-media. I like to set my creativity free and always learn more and develop in my art. I love to mix lots of flowers with fun techniques. But sometimes I create very clean too. I´m totally in love with colors and it gives me a happy smile when I make the perfect match on my projects.

During the years that have passed I have had the privilege to be on fun Design Teams and worked with great products. Current I´m on following teams: Papirdesign, Once Upon A Sketch, SWE Scrapbook, Green Tara and Inzpira Magazine.
