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:

We asked her a few fun questions...


Where does your inspiration come from? 
Inspiration - I get it from pinterest, blogs, and magazines.  I am a visual person...if I see it I retain the information better. 

What is your go to tool? 
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?  

The one thing that people might be surprised to know is that I used to work as an events coordinator prior to having kids.  I was able to work on some exciting projects like...presidential advances, touring with Tony Hawk for two years, working the Target Grand prix, and many other exciting high profile events. 

Do you have any other hobbies?

Other hobbies....playing with my three kids,  and surfing the Internet (is that considered a hobby?)

Thank you, Sesil for joining us in April and for your beautiful Nostalgia creations!

Please stop by her blog and give her some love!

Happy Crafting!
