Introducing New Design Team Member, Nicole Doiron

Happy Tuesday!!!!
Are you ready to meet another new Design Team member?
Today we are introducing our next talented designer,
Nicole Dioron
"Hi! My name is Nicole Doiron and I live in Canada... in a small coastal town called Beresford in the province of New Brunswick, to be more specific. I share a home with my soulmate Yves (we've been together for 8 years) and our furry purry baby, Sugar the cat. We don't have children of our own, but we do have 2 wonderful nieces who we love to spoil and have fun with. We also have several friends with wonderful kids who let me scrapbook their pictures often. :) I l work in a fairly uninspiring office job during the day, and I let my inspiration and creativity loose in the evenings and weekends, doing the hobby that I love so much... scrapbooking!

My scrapbooking style varies a lot, adapting itself constantly to my moods and inspirations. My forte is definitely layouts (from single to double-page), but I do also create a lot of cards and have been challenging myself to create more and more beyond the page and mixed media projects, like canvases and frames. I like to use a lot of embellishments (chipboard shapes, flowers, gems/pearls, metal accents) and I love to incorporate different techniques on my creations like handmade stitching, stencilling with gesso or molding paste, misting, whitewashing, etc.

And I also love a great challenge so I'm thrilled to be part of the Scrap Our Stash DT! I hope that you will enjoy my creations and that they will inspire you to play along!

 For Nicole's first SOS Design Team reveal, she has created this stunning layout, inspired by our
"Hello Darling"
This is what Nicole shared with us about her reveal and the challenge:
 "What a fun challenge this was for my very first one as a Scrap Our Stash designer. Scrapbooking and shopping sure seem to go hand in hand! I think half of the fun of this fabulous hobby is the time you spend in your favorite LSS browsing through each and every product available, old or new, and wishing you'd win the lottery in order to be able to buy the entire store! So, for this challenge, I used up the beautiful Crate Paper DIY Shop collection that I had recently purchased along with a few other embellishments to match. Of the list provided by Scrap Our Stash, I used a polaroid frame (chipboard shape around the picture), dimensional stickers (green flower cluster & bingo card), 2 tags (cut out from the Crate Paper patterned paper), wood veneer (title and mini typewriter from Studio Calico) and 3+ flowers (from Prima and Petaloo). If you like my layout and want to see more of my work, visit me @ http://scrap-utopia.blogspot.ca/ 
I can't wait to see what you create using this awesome challenge as inspiration!"

Scrap Our Stash is delighted to have Nicole join our team and I am sure you will enjoy the fabulous inspiration she will be sharing with us for the next six months!
