Design Team News

 It's always difficult when a design team member rotates off the team.  We have really enjoyed having Fi Kenward on our team for the past four months.  Fi is a really fantastic designer - full of individuality and style; one that will be sorely missed in the gallery!  She will be so missed, but we hope she sticks around as we have all come to love her as a person.  You will want to keep an eye on her blog as we are quite sure she is destined for great things!

It is now our pleasure to introduce Joyce Lawrence (joycekers) to you.   We had asked Joyce to step in a while ago and from that day on she became active in both the forums and the gallery.  She also has a unique style; full of elegance and sophistication.  Joyce will begin creating with our August kit and we're sure you will love her style.  Here's a little bit more about Joyce.  We hope you will join us in welcoming Joyce to C'est Magnifique!

Greetings from sunny Southern California.   A few years ago, I took up modern scrapbooking as we know it today when I became the caretaker of some very old family photos, and I wanted to preserve them and tell my family’s story.  This quest has ignited in me an insatiable appetite for procuring papers, chipboard, notions and trims, and it has allowed me to incorporate all my past hobbies of photography, watercolor painting, needlecrafts, beading, and other crafting hobbies on a 12 x 12 piece of paper.   

One of my philosophy’s in life is to romance the ordinary by adding some elements of elegance where I can. Sipping lemonade out of my best crystal glassware while scrapping seems to make the lemonade taste better.  And, with that same philosophy, I try to add scraps of elegance to my pages as well.  I’m looking forward to getting to know you, learning new things from you, and if I’m able to inspire or teach you something, I would derive much pleasure from doing so.
