New Designer Announcement + Giveaway!

Hi friends! We're thrilled to welcome some new designers to the C'est Magnifique team!

Debbie Sherman - Design Team Coordinator

Hi! I'm Debbie Sherman, I'm ecstatic be part of the C'est Magnifique  Design Team! When I'm not scrap booking, photographer, wife, mother, grandmother of 8, auntie and friend. I have been crafting since I was a little girl. I started out sewing and making jewelry around the age of 7 and have been creating ever since. I still bead and sew but now it's mostly on my paper projects. I love photography and sometimes get that "great shot" that all photographers live for! I am fortunate enough to have a press pass and am able to shoot big events occasionally. The city I live in has a yearly old west celebration called the"Daddy of 'em all" and I'm fortunate enough to attend the big rodeo's, Native Americans and several other events in town. With my press pass I have front row seating for these events which allows for some awesome photos. With all the photos I take it gives me the perfect reason to scrap them! I'll be sharing some of those with all of you! I'm so excited to be part of this wonderful team and hope to inspire and be inspired along the way.

Hello, my name is Nadine! I have been crafting for about 18 years now with scrapbooking, handmade cards, mixed media, and altered art projects being my favorite things to create, although I have done and love all things crafty. I would say my style would best be described as eclectic with a mixed media twist. Almost all my craft projects have some kind of mist or paint on them. I love getting messy and trying new techniques. Come by and visit me sometime on my blog and my other social media channels: My Scrap'n'Stuff, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, and Facebook.

My name is Angèlique Jarrier. I'm 34 years old and I'm French. I live in a village close to Brest, close to the sea, which is called Plouescat, with my husband and my two children, Lilou (10 years) and Lucas (3 years). I am currently at home which allows me to enjoy the most beautiful moments of childhood with my children and leaves me time to scrapbook, the perfect combination of all my passions; photography, paper sculpture, creativity, and many others. Because this passion is constantly evolving in me, I like to try new techniques and find fun ways to capture our wonderful moments.I do not stick to a design style, I touch everything and I evolve according to inspiration. I can create a series of cards, to layouts, altered objects, mini-albums, or my favorite pastime creating paper sculptures. I am eager to help you discover all this thanks to the sublime kits.

My name is Kathleen White and I hale from Wylie, Texas with my hubby and two little Boston Terrier babies. My three real children are grown and have flown the nest. I made my first layout in 2001 and was hooked on scrapping ever since. I love paper, flowers, bling, ribbons and lace..all those pretty things! I love to tear, wrinkle, sew and get messy with gesso, mists and paint. I also love photography and my main subjects are my daughters! I don't have a definite creations can be vintage, shabby chic or loaded with paints, sprays and gesso...depending on my mood and inspiration on any given day. I love to design!

Hi my name is Sara McDowall, I have been crafting for just over 2 years and have totally fallen in love with everything to do with it. I started out to make cards and have slowly progressed to altered projects. I have my own site on Facebook called Just Cards By Sara and a YouTube channel where I do start to finish project shares and techniques. The thing I love the most about crafting is how you can turn a simple piece of paper into a beautiful piece of art. I really enjoy mixed media, creating textures and distressing. I look forward to sharing my work with you all.

Hello, my name is Tina Rutledge. I live here on the west coast of sunny Forida with my husband and 5 children. I have 3 lovely duaghters and 2 sons ages 21-12. I'm fortunate to be at home being able to care for the needs of my family hands on, although that keeps me very busy. I have a love and passion for being crafty and creative. My favorite is paper crafting. I'm really excited to be joining the C'est Magnifique design team and working with their beautiful kits. Hopeful to share some inspiration. To view my work in detail, have a visit to my blog.

I am happily married to my wonderful and supportive husband, Jim. We have one very handsome son and beautiful daughter-in-law and an adorable grandson in his Freshman year at college. I retired in 2009 after 35 years in the legal field, but do work about 9 hours per week (3 mornings) with a friend. I have been into crafting since 2008 - mostly cardmaking. In 2013 I started scrapbooking again - the new and improved style, as well as getting into mixed media - and I love both! My other hobbies include reading, a lot, and going to movies - nothing like the big screen! I am excited to be on the C'est Magnifique team with all the wonderfully talented ladies.

How about a giveaway to celebrate the new team?! Deonna recently spent some time teaching in Las Vegas with Teresa Collins Webber and brought back a lovely pair of scissors that we want to give away to one lucky follower!

Designed for all-purpose cutting through a range of craft materials that incorporate glue, tape and other sticky adhesives, these Non-stick Scissors from Fiskars feature a non-stick blade coating that prevents the blades from gumming up. To add a pop of color to your collection of craft tools, the handle has been embellished with a touch of Teresa Collins’ signature style. The precision-ground blades cut all the way to the tip and stay sharp, and an ergonomically contoured handle offers comfortable use and cutting control.

Simply use the Inlinkz widget below to enter the Giveaway. The winner will be announce next week!
