We have a special announcement to share with you today. We have two new additions to our Design Team!

Without further ado we would like to introduce you to Charolotte Dobson and Vicki Boutin….

Here is a little bit about Charlotte …

Charlotte lives in Winnipeg, MB, Canada and a wife to a great guy and a mom to three awesome kids. She also works half time as an Educational Assistant, so needless to say her life is busy! When she is not working, taxiing her kids around or taking care of household things, you can find her creating cards, layouts and all types of crafty projects. Char started making cards about six years ago and has been scrapbooking for almost two years. She considers paper crafting to be her creative playground. In fact, one of the reasons why Char loves Core’dinations so much is the play factor. They are always coming out with a new line or she is trying a new technique. You never know what she is going do next! She is honored and thrilled to be part of the fabulous design team at Core’dinations.

Here is a little bit about Vickie …

Vicki Boutin comes from a background in graphic design and fine arts and she has always been passionate about creating pretty things!  Her love of colour, texture, funky patterns and photography lead her to the discovery of scrapbooking and paper crafting.  She has not looked back since!

In 2006 Vicki became a Creating Keepsakes Hall of Fame winner and went on to be part of Better Homes and Gardens Scrapbooks Etc’s Creative Team.  Her work is currently published in Scrapbooks, Etc and Vicki writes a quarterly article for Scrapbooks and Cards, Today magazine.  She enjoys working closely with a number of the industry’s top manufacturers including Sassafras, 7 Gypsies, Basic Grey, Little Yellow Bicycle and Pink Paislee.  Vicki is also a Ranger Certified instructor.

Vicki is always on a mission to learn something new and then find a way to share it!  That is where teaching comes in!  She has taught workshops in the United States, Canada and Europe and loves to approach art in a fun, fresh and accessible way.  Her motto is “You don’t know if it’s your style until you try it, so go for it!  It’s only a piece of paper!”  Her workshops offer an opportunity to meet new friends, try new things and most of all have FUN!!!

Two crazy kids and a straight laced husband keep things interesting in Vicki’s home in Southern Ontario, Canada.  At present, Vicki is writing her first technique based book which will be available in 2012.

Congratulations Ladies! Stay tune for some fabulous projects from these ladies tomorrow.
