2011 Design Team

The time has finally arrived for our big reveal! Thanks again to everyone who applied for our design team. Now, please welcome six ladies who are the best of the best... SEI's 2011 Design team!

Audrey Yeager
• I am a former high school Biology teacher, now a SAHM to 16 month old Charlotte, and married to my sweet hubby Keith.
• We moved to Houston from New York about 3 1/2 years ago. I love the winter and spring in the south, but nothing can beat the summers and fall in New York State.
• I love being "domestic": all things crafty, baking, cooking, and sewing (but not so much on the cleaning part! :) )
• I love the outdoors and am so inspired by nature. I love indentifying birds and butterflies and trees.
• I listen to all kinds of music, but most of the time I will be singing out loud to heavy metal or hard rock!

Caroline Ikeji
• I live in foggy San Francisco, where summer seems to finally be starting as the official start of fall just passed. No seriously, summers are like winters here. Other than the fog, though, I absolutely LOVE it up here.
• I'm a college student, scrapbook designer, photographer, and I recently started working at a chocolate shop. It's a sweet job, literally (although it hasn't been good for my waistline).
• I loooooooove food, and especially talking about it. My specialty is making people hungry :)
• I am a coffee addict, especially Blue Bottle Coffee. You don't want to cross me when I'm not caffeinated, it seriously won't be pleasant!

Julie Bonner
• I live in Crownsville, Maryland with my husband, 3-year-old son Ryan, and 3 toy poodles.
• I have always preserved pictures, cards, newspaper clippings, and mementos in albums, but it wasn't until the birth of my son that I threw myself completely into all the wonderful products & techniques the industry has to offer :)
• I enjoy using hand-sewing, inking, misting, and pen detail to add that special touch to my projects - while still maintaing a focus on photos.
• I LOVE exploring new ways to organize photos, patterned papers, and embellishments on a page & am constantly creating sketches to record these ideas.
• SEI was one of the first brands of scrapbook supplies I created with & I am SO excited and honored to be part of their 2011 Design Team!!!

Kate O'Brien
• I am originally from New Orleans, Louisiana. We relocated to Seattle, Washington last year and I am loving it so far!
• Being a mommy is my first priority in life and my family means the world to me!
• I love anything creative be it photography, scrapbooking or sewing.
• When I am not working, making art or hanging out with the people I love you can find me in the kitchen baking something sweet!

Lisa Johnson
• I live in Anacortes WA with my Husband/best friend (Chris) and our four daughters (Alex, Hannah, Pepper and Ella). We have two boy cats, Mozart and Haydn, to keep Chris company.
• Making cards is my favorite type of paper crafting. Stamping is my favorite creative method!
• My styles are typically clean, simple, cute and elegant.
• In addition to my passion for paper crafting I love being involved in my church, spending any time with my family, singing, dancing, hiking, camping, hanging with my friends, blogging and being a silly girl!

Lori Mancini
• I live in beautiful Ontario Canada with my husband Dan and our two handsome teenage son's.
• When I’m not scrapbooking until the wee hours of the morning I enjoy spending time family and friends, and keep busy running our Custom Cabinetry business with my husband.
• I am a "Scatter-Brained" blonde who loves to read blogs by the hour, take photo's by the 100's, and finds inspiration in everything around me.
• I enjoy The lazy days of summer, Starbuck's pretzels, and cheering my kids on in whatever it is they're doing. In the winter you will find me hibernating in my scrap room with fuzzy slippers and a cup of tea, or camped out in front of the TV watching Grey's Anatomy or The Biggest Loser.
• I am honored to have had my work published in Canadian Scrapbooker, Scrapbook & Cards Today and Scrapbook Trends magazine’s. I look forward to inspiring all of you with my creations and being inspired by all of you!
