CY Guest Designer Feature: Susan Coish!

Posted in Designer's Creations, Guest Designers at 4:11 pm by alimom4

Another of our TALENTED and friendly Sisters is featured here today! Welcome to “Creatively Yours” Susan!

This busy gal deserves a standing ovation right now. I am about to burst, prouder than proud to tell you that Susan is completing her Nursing degree from the same Uni I attended when I studied Nursing!! In the midst of her studies and work as a Nursing student, she is a Mommy, wife and scrapper… wearing sooo many hats in each role!! *We all understand the “many hats”  thing, right?* LOL

Meet Susan:


 Susan was kind enough to send me her bio to share with you all!

“I am blessed to be married to a wonderful man, and we have 2 beautiful daughters ( ages 8 and 7). I am 30…something…and currently finishing up my last 3 weeks of nursing school ( my second career). Once finished I hope to be a pediatric nurse in my local hospital. We live in Moncton, NB and have been here for 6 years. I started scrapbooking in 2002 (I think… lol). My sister (Deanne) introduced me to the craft and I’ve been hooked ever since. I spend a lot of time browsing  galleries and grabbing inspiration anywhere I can get it.

I scrapbook because it’s become an outlet for my day to day stressors. I find that even the days when I am totally exhausted from home stuff and school stresses, I like to sit at my scrapping table and scrap a quick LO to relieve that stress. 

I also love to create the memories for my kids. It makes me so happy to see them sitting down and looking at the pages I have created through the years (and there’s a lot of them! lol) Through the years, my style has evolved many times.  Right now, my style is eclectic. At times, I love adding extra details, but other times more simplistic pages work for me.

I am honoured to have been published in Scrapbook and Cards Today, Canadian Scrapbooker, and an inspiration idea book “Doodling for Papercrafters.”

Thanks  to Ali and Noella, for inviting us to be a part of the team here for the month of April. I look forward to inspiring and being inspired by each one of you.” 

Here is a link to Susan’s fun blog which she calls Scrap ‘n Doodle! Go check out her awesome work!

Speaking of that, here are two of Susan’s favourite layouts. Enjoy!
