Design Team Member, Hera Frei!

Here is a little about Hera in her own words:

I fell in love with my Swiss husband almost 13 years ago under the Eifel Tower! We now have 2 sons, aged 6 and 10. I am from New Zealand originally but have lived in Germany and Switzerland for the last 14 years. Before children I was an accountant but my creative-side emerged almost four years ago and after my family, scrapbooking rules my life – from what we wear to where we go to how we pose!! Inspiration arrives in many forms for me – from the mouths and hearts of my children, the grocery packaging, crossing the border to one of the 5 countries that surround us or just by relaxing with my morning cappuccino whilst drooling over the latest home and garden magazine. I have had several creations published in magazines in the United States, England, Australia and New Zealand but best of all, is seeing my two sons browsing the albums all about our life!

Check out all the repeating circles on this layout by Hera. It really keeps your eye moving around the page to see all the different Core’dination Cardstock she used {Chocolate Box with green core, Vintage Flower Power and Core Essentials Green}.

Don’t forget that tomorrow is the LAST day to get your projects linked to this post for our contest! The entries have been great so far!

Designer Spotlight: Linda Beeson

Good Monday Morning!

What a great way to start off the week with a Designer Spotlight. Today we would like to introduce you to Linda Beeson.

Here is a little bit about Linda in her own words:

My name is Linda Beeson, I live in Ventura, CA with my husband of over 40 years. We both are actually from Washington state but have loved our years in California. We have raised four kids and now enjoy six wonderful and adorable grandchildren. I work at home for my husband and I have an office, so it was completely normal that it would also be a craft room. Honestly if I could do crafts all day long, I would be happy.

I started rubber stamping something like 20 years ago, that evolved into scrapbooking and now you will find me doing just about any kind of papercrafting, mostly cards. One of my absolute favorite things in creating is to experiment and I feel that Core’dinations papers just want you to play with them to see what you can do next, so I know I am going to really enjoy sharing that with the crafting world.

And here are a few projects Linda has created with some My Little Shoebox goodies from our 2,4,6,8 Core’dinate series. We love showing you how well Core’dinations Core’dinate with our fellow scrapbooking manufacturers.

Linda did some sanding to create the pattern on the background of this card. It reminds me of graphic patterned paper, what a great money saving tip, too.

The detail on this card is brilliant! Linda makes such beautiful cards, and these are no exception.
