Meet the Christmas Stampin' All Year Long Gals!

Happy New Year, everyone! Christmas is just a couple of weeks (50) to be exact! around the corner 
and soon we will need to start making Christmas cards again and that's what this challenge blog is all about to take away (or minimize) the stress of making Christmas cards.

Twice a month, (1st & 3th Friday of month)  the CSAYL Gals will be sharing Christmas cards, Gifts sets, tags, etc and we hope that you come and play around with us in some of them and get more that ready for Christmas!

 I would like to introduce the NEW CSAYL Gals, here they are:

Our Team Coordinator 
My name is Valérie ALLARD, more known under the pen name valou250809. I lived in Belgium just next to the big city of Chaleroi and in 40 kilometers from Brussels.

 I have 5 children from 5 to 15 years old. I scrappe since 2006 and my style is the “Shabby Chic Style” but I know also how to create in a vintage style or C&S without any problem. I create a great deal of cards and of projects home decoration. I like the sharing and the scrapbooking is ideal for it. As to work in one Design Team. 

Hi, I am Bernardine Cuttino, kindly called me BERNI. I lived in Santa Clarita, CA, USA, 40 miles North of Los Angeles. I guess you could say, it is the High Desert, weather is triple digit's in the Summer and cold in the winter. In fact, there is snow on the mountains in the winter, very pretty. Now if you go South towards the water, there is the beach. You have the best of both worlds.
 I retired from Princess Cruises, the cruise line. Have had the good fortune to have travelled the world and visited all seven continents. My favorite place in the world is Italy. I also worked in the Motion Picture Industry for twenty years.
 Started with scrapbooking and went into card making when I retired. I love to create and experiment with different techniques; and enjoy gardening. I am involved in the Women ministry at church. Create cards for the Missionaries in my church who are worldwide. Always looking for inspiration and ready for a challenge.

Hi! My name is Valerie, and I live in the top northeast corner (tundra!) of Illinois. I’m married to my college sweetheart, and we have 4 kids, ages 12-17 (the youngest 2 are twin boys!). My love of paper crafting began as a child; I didn’t realize it then, but I was scrapbooking in albums all the time (I still have them, and I love looking back on them). My life in “Scrapbooking” began 10 years ago when my friend took me to a scrapbooking night with friends. That was it, I was hooked. Card making entered my life 4 years ago when I got a job at Archiver’s; that opened up an entire new awesome world for me! I’m also an architect (on hiatus because of family life), a substitute teacher (perfect job for a busy mom), and a designer on another design team. The crafting & projects aren’t the only wonderful thing about this portion of my life; the many, many people I’ve met along the way has been a wonderful bonus; I have so many new friends because of it, and sometimes I think that’s the best part!


Hi, my name is Vivienne, but most people call me Viv.

I have a long suffering hubby, 4 sons and 8 grandchildren. The youngest is 8 months and the oldest is 23!!!

I've been crafting for over 10 years and see no signs of ever giving up my addiction.

I don't think I have a specific style, so I call mine 'eclectic'.

(Sounds posher than 'A mixture').

My favourite medium for colouring my stamps and digi images, is Copics.

I look forward to sharing my projects with you.

My name is Susie Cannon Moore.  I am married to my soul mate Randall and between us we have five grown children - four boys and one girl.  We are also blessed to have eight wonderful grandchildren.  We live in a small country town – Maypearl, Tx where we own a scrapbooking bed and breakfast.

I have been paper crafting all my life…but started scrapbooking seriously in 1998.  It has been full throttle ever since.  My motto is, “A day without scrapbooking?  Not if I can help it.”  And I’ve tried to live by that all these years.

 I've been published in a few magazines and have even been on HGTV.  What an experience!

 I scrapbook digitally these days, but still love using great papers and tools for card making.  I use clear stamps and digital images too as I am also a computer nerd!
