Meet Our November Guest Designers

MCS is very excited to reveal November's Kit work. And goodness, you won't believe it when you see it! We're trying to be patient, really we are. We're just extremely anxious to show everyone what our amazingly talented team has created. Everything will be revealed in just a few short days (oh the torture!) . While we're all waiting, let's take a moment to learn a bit about November's guest designers.

MCS is thrilled to welcome Lynn Biermann!

My name is Lynn Biermann and I live in a small town just outside of St Louis in southwestern Illinois. I love the Midwest and after traveling for 23 years as an Air Force family we are happy to have settled. I have been married for 31 years to the best guy in the world! I am lucky to fill my life with family and friends... they are my true inspiration. Hubby and I are learning to do the “empty nest” thing now and are having a blast!

I started this wonderful hobby in September 2007 and was instantly hooked. I love the idea of archiving a little bit of yesterday and today for those tomorrow. However, more than anything I found the wonderful people in the world wide scrapbooking community to be so welcoming to newcomers and so willing to share their talent. We are lucky to have each other!

And returning as guest designer for a 2nd month -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.
