Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you got started scrapbooking: Hi! My name is Gina Lideros and I am so excited to be here! I am a military wife of 16 years to my husband Frank. Together we have two children ages 15 and 13. We live in sunny California with our 3 fur babies (dogs). We love to enjoy the outdoors and like to go camping and biking. I began scrapbooking in 1997. I was introduced to it by a friend and have been hooked ever since! I have been fortunate to work with a lot of great companies and meet some awesome friends.

Favorite thing to scrap: My family and everyday moments. I also love to scrap my 3 dogs. They make great scrap subjects!

What do you love about scrapbooking? I love that it is a creative form of expressing art while also documenting family memories.

5 fun facts about yourself:
1. I can’t scrap in silence. I need to have on music, a tv show, or friends with me while I scrap.
2. My favorite sweet treat to indulge in is white chocolate covered pretzels.
3. I was born and raised in Las Vegas and met my husband there. We were married on the Las Vegas strip in true Vegas tradition!
4.  I’ve been a blonde my whole life. The biggest change I’ve ever done was getting highlights. I kind of think I’d like to try something different, but I’m a big chicken about changing it!
5. I’m going through a painting phase. I need to apply watercolors or acrylics to every project that I make.

Here is the layout Gina created specifically for her spotlight:

I love incorporating photos into my design. On this page I printed my photos small and cut them the same size as my background pieces.

To create this layout I used my Silhouette machine to draw the title using sketch pens, trimmed it out, and then applied watercolors. Super easy to do and makes a great background!

This layout has two of my favorite things – watercolors and die cut letters. Simply apply watercolors to cardstock and then stitch down title using a sewing machine.

To document my New Year’s Eve photos I cut my photos and background papers into pennant shapes and then grouped them all together to make one large hanging pennant.

Creating a sequin title for your page is easy to do and creates a big impact! I used a stencil as a guide and then adhered my sequins down using liquid adhesive.

Thanks for letting me spotlight you, Gina – you are so amazingly talented! Stay tuned ’til next week!
