Meet Our October Guest Designers

All of us at MCS are so very thrilled and honored to have had the opportunity to work with these three amazing women this month. You will not believe the awesome stuff they've created with their kits! You'll be able to see these creations in just a few short days. In the meantime, however, why don't you take a moment to learn a bit more about these talented ladies.

Delaina Burns

My name is Delaina Burns and I live in the small town of Roanoke, Alabama with my husband of 24 years and our two children. Simon is 18 years old and began his first year of college this fall. Anna is 16 years old and is in the 11th grade. I am surrounded by a large extended family, and you will see many of their faces featured on my pages and projects.

I have enjoyed making things with my hands for as long as I can remember. I am a self taught seamstress and have operated a successful custom drapery and bedding business from home for more than 12 years. This job has enabled me to be home for my family, while working and helping provide for them.

I began scrapping 3 years ago, after receiving an assignment from my daughter's cheer coach to make a scrapbook of the season’s events. Though very unhappy with the assignment, I persevered and made a few pages. The bug bit and I have never looked back. My love for the craft and the crafters I have met along the way has changed my life. I encourage everyone I know and/or meet to give scrapbooking a try.

I design for, and teach at my local scrapbook store, Sweet Memories in Carrollton, Georgia. I am also on staff at Scrapbook News and Reviews Magazine. I will have my first paper publication in Scrapbook Trends' January issue. I am so excited about being Guest Designer at MCS! I have been a fan of their kits and the design team for a long time. I can’t wait to work with this talented group of designers and to get better acquainted with the members at MCS.

Susan Goetter

Scrapbooking has been my creative passion for the past nine years. When I retreat to my scrap room I can put my daily job on the back burner, and become creative. As a former member of the MCS design team, I was thrilled to come back as a guest designer for the month of October. I’ve missed the challenge and the teamwork – and the kits are always fantastic!

I was a member of the DaisyD Design Team from 2007-2008, and a design team member for My Creative Scrapbook in 2008-2009. I’ve been a guest designer for Kraft Girls Kit club, Creative Scrappers, and Scrapbuck. I’ve been published Ivy Cottages and Scrapbooking and Beyond and in the ezine – Scrapstreet. I’ve had layouts accepted in the Basic Grey gallery, Graphic 45 gallery, and the Silhouette gallery.

Teresa Manchas

Hello! My name is Teresa, but everyone knows me as Catz. I have been scrapbooking for about four years now, and my daughter is the one I blame for my 'addicted to paper' habit! I love the vintage style, but I also try different styles every now and then, just to keep the creative juices flowing! I have two adult children, whom I am so very proud of, and two very active grandsons! My husband and I live in a small town in Washington State - so I'm thankful for the rain... it’s an AWESOME excuse for staying inside to scrap! I am so tickled to be a guest designer for My Creative Scrapbook. I have seen so many of the layouts others have created with these kits and they are amazing! This will be too much fun!
