Hi scrappy friends, I’m Lisa Fonseca – you can find me on Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, and my Blog. I’m from Luxembourg and I’m 35 years old. I have been scrapbooking for almost five years and had the chance to work with great brands, including Pink Paislee and EK Success for the last two and a half years. Here are five fun facts about me: I love Coke, Netflix, Italian food, the series FRIENDS, horror movies, scrapbooking… I speak five languages: Luxembourgish, German, French, English, and Italian. My favorite places in the world are: my house, Pineto (Italy), and Honolulu (Hawaii). I buy way too many clothes… I taught scrapbooking classes in England and Italy and attended Creativation in 2019 where I met a lot of the AC family members. I’m so excited for my adventure with American Crafts and am so happy to have the chance to be creating for this amazing company. I hope I will be able to inspire you and spark joy and creativity in your hearts!


Hello crafty friends, it’s Lucile! You can find me on Instagram and YouTube. I am very happy and honored to see you again for a new creative year! I look forward to sharing lots of new projects with you. For those who do not know me I am French and I have been passionate about scrapbooking and DIY of all kinds for more than 10 years now. Scrapbooking is for me a way to express my creativity and highlight my fondest memories. Today I present to you my favorite projects at the moment!


Hi! My name is Obed Marshall (find me on Instagram, YouTube, and my Blog) and my goal is to bring color and creativity to your daily life. I’m a paper crafter and artist and I love to make colorful and fun projects. From mini albums to home decor and anything in between. I’m currently living in Spain. I love languages, literature, photography, and traveling is one of my favorite hobbies. My favorite colors are blue and yellow and I’m obsessed with washi tape and patterned paper, aren’t we all? I’m honored to have been invited to continue on the AC Design Team for another term, thank you AC for trusting in me! I hope that through my projects you feel inspired to start creating your own. You don’t need special tools or supplies to make something fun. Grab anything you have and just create something. Happy crafting!
