Introducing Mari Lee Clarke
We are thrilled to have Mari Clarke join the Scrapbook Nerd Creative Team.
Mari is a very busy lady, wearing many hats. By day she is a high school teacher and counsellor, which keeps her very busy when school is in. During her free time, Mari is a lover of all things creative and crafty. She has been a painter and crafter for decades and that now translates into her love of mixed media on her paper crafting projects.
Mari is currently on the JustNick Design Team and is also an avid YouTuber with her own YouTube channel where she showcases her process videos, scrapbooking, Project Life, mixed media, art journaling and haul videos. You can find her YouTube channel HERE.
Mari lives in Arborfield, SK, and her favourite place to be is anywhere her family is. She is the mother of two adult children who are still the inspiration for many of her projects.
When not crafting you may see Mari meeting new people and hearing their stories over a cup of Tim’s.
Welcome to the Scrapbook Nerd Team, Mari. We look forward to being inspired by you over the next few months!
Milena is new to the Scrapbook Nerd Design Team – but not new to Scrapbook Nerd. She has been part of our Inspiration Team for the past few years as our sketch designer. Many of you have been inspired by her sketches and have used them as a jump-off point for your projects.
Milena is going to continue to inspire us with her sketches, and will also be sharing her beautiful projects with us, and inspiring us through tutorials.
Milena and her husband, Dave, have two beautiful daughters who are 20 and 16 years of age. They have been a great part of Milena’s inspiration and the main subject matter of her projects.
Milena began scrapbooking over 17 years ago. She struggled with finding the time to devote to her creative endeavours while her girls were younger, but is now enjoying a little more freedom to create.
Milena is primarily a Scrapbooker, but is beginning to branch out into card-making, stamping, and mixed media.
We are thrilled to welcome Milena to the Design Team and are looking forward to seeing what she has in store for us.
You can see more of Milena’s projects in the Scrapbook Nerd Gallery or on the Scrapbook Nerd Instagram page.
We are so excited to announce that we have a new Design Team that will be sharing their amazing talent and creativity with us. Each of these ladies have amazed us with their projects. We are looking forward to being inspired by each of these ladies and know that you are in for a real treat. Join us each Friday for the next few weeks where you will get to know each new member.
It’s always sad to say good-bye to our out-going team. They have been a true pleasure to work with. Thankfully though, goodbye doesn’t mean forever as we know that they will be forever part of the Scrapbook Nerd family!
Introducing Gisele Julien
Gisèle Julien taught in New Brunswick for 32 years and is now retired. Gisèle’s 1st trip after retirement, was, what else, a scrapbooking cruise to the Caribbean! She is very involved with volunteering with Project Linus: blankets for children in crisis. She loves to spend time with her great-nieces who are usually her scrapbook subjects. Her other favourite subjects are trips, and family get togethers.
Scrapbooking has taken over her passion to create and to preserve family memories. It has been a big part of who she is since 2005 when this craft was introduce to her by a colleague. She has always been involved in crafts of some kind so this has fed her creativity.
Gisèle has had the pleasure of taking classes from many international scrap designers and enjoys attending crops and Paper Crafting events whenever she can.
Gisèle is an avid scrapbooker who has been published in The Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine (now know as Creative Scrapbooker) and the e-magazine Ready Set Create. She has also been a designer for other online and retail stores.
You can find her on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram and Twitter.
