Short bio: Hi! My name is Gina Lideros and I am so excited to be back for a third term on the American Crafts Design Team! I have been married to my husband Frank for 17 years (this November) and we have two kids ages 16 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 have been scrapbooking since 1997 and have been fortunate to work with a lot of great companies and meet some awesome friends.

Favorite thing to scrap: My favorite thing to scrap is my family, nieces, everyday life, and my dogs.

Favorite American Crafts product: My favorite American Crafts product is patterned paper, I love it!

5 fun facts:
1. My favorite season is fall, the more pumpkin flavored things the better!
2. I'm addicted to the ID channel and true crime shows.
3. My favorite food is sushi – I could eat it everyday.
4. I love the smell of fresh, clean laundry and the way it scents up the house.
5. The comfier the better – you can usually find me in sweatpants.

Thanks so much for stopping by and getting to know our new team! Come back next week for a brand new round of inspiring projects! Have a fabulous weekend!
