Meet talented and returning team member
Nicole Doiron
"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! 
You can visit my blog at Scrap-utopia."

Nicole we are thrilled to have you return for another term!!! 
 We are looking forward to being inspired by more of your fabulous work!

Nicole has doubled up on us, and created this precious layout to share with us, inspired by our

"Little Star"

This is what Nicole shared with us about the challenge and her lovely reveal:
" I know that double-page layouts are not necessarily the trend these days, but when I started scrapbooking back in 2004, that is all I made, and I have to say that I still enjoy them a lot. Double the layout, double the fun! This stash challenge was also a lot of fun! I got stuck on a couple letters, but with a little help from my friends (thank you SOS DT gals), I found some cool stash items for every letter in the word T-W-I-N-E. Let's start with 'T' - Aside from the obvious twine, I used tags on my page. The 'W' is represented by wood veneer shapes. For the letter 'I', I thought of adding some faux stitching with a white ink pen. As for 'N', the overall theme of my layout was inspired by the nursery rhyme 'Twinkle, twinkle, little star'. And last but not least, I included eyelets to represent the letter 'E'. I can't wait to see what words you will come up with!"
