My name is Cathi O'Neill, and I am an American who married an Irishman and I have been living in Ireland since 1997. I live in a beautiful village on the Shannon River with my DH of nearly 19 years (wow, that makes me feel old!) and my two beautiful daughters, Aine (onya) 11 and Aisling (ashling) 10 who are the subject of many of my projects!!
I have always love crafting since I was a little girl. My grandmother taught me to knit and crochet and I remember sewing Barbie doll clothes with her on her front porch! I am a knitter and quilter as well, but have recently in the last three years found cardmaking and scrapbooking, and an obsession was born!! I truly love creating and make vintage cards to sell here in our local village cafe as well as stacks of mixed media and shabby/vintage style layouts of my girls to keep and share with family! I also love to do tags, ATC and altered projects, barely a day goes by when I haven't done something crafty!!
I am currently on the design teams for manufacturers LaLaLand Crafts and Meg's Garden. I also design for challenge blogs Berry71Bleu and Sugar Creek Hollow. I have been lucky enough to design and guest design for some great manufacturers like May Arts Ribbon, Frosted Designs, Couture Creations, Visible Image Stamps, and Creative Expressions. I truly enjoy the challenge and inspiration that scrapbooking and cardmaking bring me.

I’m so excited to be joining the C'est Magnifique Design Team as a designer and also as the kit designer. My name is Debbie Burns and I live in the beautiful state of Maryland very near our nation’s capital, Washington, DC. I’m a single mom to two adult children, ages 24 and 27 and one precious dog, Zoey. By day I am an Assistant Project Manager for a General Contractor and in the evenings and weekends you can find me in my craft room busy creating away or outside tending to my flower gardens.
I fell in love with scrapbooking years ago when I was given a finished album, “all about me” for a birthday present. I took a couple of beginner’s classes and have been hooked ever since. I love to create shabby chic layouts which include mixed media and this past year I ventured into the world of canvases!
I currently am on the Design Team for Scrap Around the World and in the past have had the wonderful experience of being the DT coordinator for Frosted Designs. I’ve also been on design teams for Berry71bleu, Artful Delight, Purple Pumpkin, and Stuck On U Sketches.
I am looking forward to my time here at C’est Magnifique and can’t wait to share my projects with you! Would love for you to stop by my blog here.
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.
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 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.
My name is Ulrika Blomfelt aka LillBlomman. I live close to Stockholm, Sweden’s capital with my hubby 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.

I have been a Registered Nurse for 33 years. I have to support my Scrapbooking habit, right?
I have been scrapbooking since I was a young teen, but the formal style of scrapbooking since my daughter took me to a local Scrapbook Store 14 years ago. I immediately feel in love with the hobby and have changed and grown with my style over the years. My Scrapping Style is Shabby Chic/Vintage. I love flowers, bling, ink, layering and distressing. I love going to crops with friends and meeting new Scrappy friends.
I am involved in swaps. We swap tags, and altered objects such as Jean Pockets. We take “junk” and make it a work of art! I have met some of my best friends through my "Scrapping Journey”! I love attending crops for the day or weekend. I enjoy teaching classes. There is nothing better than being with people who share the love of creativity and preserving memories!
When I’m not working, or scrapping I enjoy spending time with my family, reading mysteries, surfing the web and watching you tube videos (about crafting of course)!
