Please welcome our April Guest Designer, Sesil Cratin!
I have had the pleasure of getting to know this wonderful designer over this past year, as our paths have crossed at CHA a few times!
Here's a little bit about her...
I am a mom to three young children ranging in ages from 7-4 years old, a wife to a very loving and understanding man, and most of all a paper crafter. I have been in the retail side of crafting for over 10 years. I am fortunate enough to work with Teresa Collins and Therm O Web. From time to time I freelance for other scrapbooking companies. When I am not working in my studio, I help my husband run our business, try to keep up with my kids in addition to all the other mom duties most of us have on a day to day basis.
And here's what she created from our Nostalgia line:
Here's a darling layout of her son.
And a closeup...her stitching and clean lines are wonderful for this sweet line!
What a pretty handmade pattern she created here in this all occasion card!
What a beautiful patchwork layout here of her daughter, Sammie.
We asked her a few fun questions...
Inspiration - I get it from pinterest, blogs, and magazines. I am a visual person...if I see it I retain the information better.
My go to tool would be my sewing machine. I love sewing on everything.... I am not a seamstress by any means. But I love sewing on paper.
What is YOUR signature item (the one thing that ALWAYS ends up in your projects)?
So I guess my signature is the sewing. Sewing on mostly everything. Or bling.. anything shiny!
Name one thing that people might be surprised to know about you?
Do you have any other hobbies?
