And coming back is Diva Sarah Eclavea!

Yesterday you met returning Diva, Julie Tucker-Wolek, and today you are going to meet returning Diva, Sarah Eclavea. Sarah started on the team when we had a separate team for our Card Divas.  And then, when I became lead, she took over the main part of Social Media Coordinator.  She is the face of Facebook, Twitter and just to name a few!

But, I am here to tell you that this Diva is not just limited to cards, she can do some amazing layouts, which you are going to see below!  Sarah worked with the Audrey collection for our CHA booth and these are a few of the projects she created!

I HAD to start with a card!  Sarah is amazing with elegant, 
yet simple and clean cards!

When I saw this layout I just thought it was precious! 
 I love her outfit and that smile.

And another card, which is perfect for Mother's Day!  
The Audrey collection is so versatile. 

I have nothing to say about this is just delightful 
and I love it!  I love how she used black cardstock with this. 

And a fun way to scrap a BUNCH of pictures on a one page layout!

We are so happy that Sarah is still with us and that she creates such fabulous projects for Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker!  Be sure to tell her hi here and on Facebook.  She is the one that is generally answering your questions....or asking them to you!!

(Re) Welcome Diva, Julie Tucker-Wolek!

Today is Ms. Julie Tucker-Wolek's turn to be introduced!  Although, she really needs no introduction at all.  Julie has been a Diva since the beginning, just like Deana has been.  She has also taken on additional responsibilities for Nikki Sivils, of them being keep the blog straight!  That is why she has the title, Blog Coordinator.  (we thought it fit!)  She not only does the blog scheduling, but she is also responsible for the Showcase on YOU posting that we have every month.

So, let's see some of her Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker work that she has done!

Here is an adorable advent calendar made with Gingerbread Land.
Julie did a tutorial for this in this post.

And here is a fun layout about the things Brookie says!  
This is using the Summer collection.

And a cute birthday layout using the You're a Hoot collection.

And last, a layout about Mom and Brookie being sick together.
This is a perfect page with the Get Well collection.

So, welcome Julie back to the team!  Also...Julie is great at altered projects, so I am sure we will be seeing some of those from her in the future here on the blog.

Please visit Julie's blog, she would love to have you over.....

Introducing Melanie Jarocki as our last "new" Diva

I have to tell you, I am lucky in the fact I get to see peeks of the projects the Divas are doing and I absolutely cannot WAIT to start showing their work with the new collections.  I think you are going to love them all!

And with that, I am introducing Melanie Jarocki as one of our new Divas.  She has a fun style that is laid back, but with a little spark that catches your attention right off!  And even though I am not showing any, I think you will be seeing some two page layouts from her!  (no pressure there, Melanie!) She also makes some adorable cards!  Let's take a look!

Her projects are all featuring the School is Cool collection and I love how they are all different and unique to each project that she used them on!

A fun little card, which I think is perfect for a grade schooler going into big scary middle school...or someone that is trying for a new promotion at work!  

Next up she did a little mini with the collection of pictures of the first day of school through the years!  

And last, but not lest, this adorable little memory book!  How cute!

We hope that you loved Melanie's projects, we did when we received them.  We would like to give Melanie a big welcome to the Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker team and we can't wait to see more from her!

Please visit Melanie's blog at.....

Marielle LeBlanc, A New Diva!

Marielle LeBlanc, is one of our new Diva members from Canada.  We loved her DT application and her style of how she creates.  She is one of those creative people that can add little touches here and there and make them work seamlessly no matter what!

Sidenote......Some of our Divas have been waiting for the new collections, but we didn't want to wait to introduce them to you.  So, we are showcasing their work with older collections for their Intros.  BUT, they have all received product and are creating like busy little bees!

Marielle had some fabulous layouts using the Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker collection
Tree Love.  (this is one of my favorite collections)

I love the Bucky the Beaver element with the year tag hanging off of it.  Just a nice little "extra" touch that is easy to do on your layouts!

We are anxiously waiting to see what Marielle is going to do with the new collections!  You may not realize it, but we are ALL like kids in a candy store when it comes to the new collections and getting to play with them!  We totally know how you feel!

Please make sure and visit Marielle's blog.....

Say Hello to Diva, Stacy Rodriguez

Today we are introducing you to our one of our new Diva's, Stacy Rodriguez.  Stacy has been a fan of Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker for quite awhile now.  She has participated in quite a few of our challenges (possibly all of them!) and was also a guest designer for us last year.  She also loves to teach classes at her LSS, The Scrapbooking Studio, with Nikki Sivils products!

Stacy worked with a couple of the collections for CHA, Messages and Noah.  Let's take a look at what she has created!

Let's look at Messages first!

A little mailbox

a cute little message pad

An address/phone book

A layout about her daughter's texting habits!

And with the Noah collection

A mini book (Stacy is the mini book queen!)

A couple of adorable layouts

And this cute photo holder idea (which I have already used!)

We are looking forward to some more great projects from Stacy!  We hope you like her work as much as we do.  She adds a touch of vintage to the team, which shows how versatile Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker collections can be!  

Leave some love for Stacy here and make sure to visit her blog......

Welcome Back, Diva Deana Boston!

Deana Boston is no stranger to the Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker design team.  She has been a Diva since the very beginning and is a wonderful addition to the team!  Along with being a Diva, she also has the title of Retail Program Coordinator. This means that along with her duties of being a Diva, she also is in charge of producing the newletter/project idea email that is sent out to the retailers carrying Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker projects!  (p.s. if your LSS carries Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker products, make sure they are signed up for the emails!)

Here are just a few of Deana's wonderful projects that she created for the booth at CHA.  She worked with the Exit Here collection and turned out some beauties.  

Hee hee, this layout is SO Deana!!  I love the banner/flower combo!

Deana and her family travel a lot, so this collection is going to get some mileage, I do believe.  

And Deana also makes the cutest cards.  
Here are a couple that were in the booth.

Deana has a unique, fresh, and clean linear style to her projects and we are so happy that she is still on the team.  We hope Deana's projects inspire you to create something fun today!  Please make sure to visit Deana's blog.....

Paper, Paper, Paper...

All my paper arrived last week! Which is always so much fun for me! (Even more fun than my birthday.) I'm not sure if its all the hard work that goes into designing it or the reward after such a long process of getting it home, maybe both. I seem to take the same pictures every single time my paper arrives, I just can't help myself... I'm just so excited! I just can't hide! (Sorry, couldn't help myself.)
So once again here is my paper arriving...
 getting it in the warehouse (aka the garage)
 me hugging one of the pallets!
 Here is a collage of pictures from my iPhone.
If you love apps then you will want this one, Diptic, it will combine your pictures right from your phone.
Once the paper was inventoried it was time to start putting DT packages together! 
Then get them shipped out.
Can't wait to see what they create with all the product.
I want to share this great layout by DT Diva, Deana Boston, she made this for Valentine's Day and I LOVE it! Deana used my Sugar Cookie paper line, Max & Mollie paper, a little bit of my Summer paper line and my newest collection Exit Here!
Have a great week!

Welcome our new Diva, Jennie McGarvey

We are highlighting another new design team Diva, Jennie McGarvey.  We loved Jennie's unique style to her layouts when she applied and we are excited to have her on the team!

She made this layout for our CHA booth using the new Audrey collection.  Nikki (and me too!) loved the fact that she used this girl-themed collection for an Easter themed layout...and pink is TOO for boys!

Here is a cute little "hello" card with the Exit Here collection.  I love how she created a pocket on the front.

And last, but not least, a layout with the new Messages collection. 
 That cluster of elements is calling my name.  

We are so excited to have Jennie on the team and we would love for you to leave her some love!  Also, be sure to check out her blog at:
