Short bio: Hi! My name is Gina Lideros and I am so excited to be on the American Crafts Design Team! I have been married to my husband Frank for 15 years (this November) and we have two kids ages 14 and 10. 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: Everyday moments with my family.
Favorite American Crafts product: It's a tie between Thickers and patterned papers.
5 fun facts:
1. I love music and always have Pandora on while I scrap.
2. My favorite color is yellow.
3. You can usually find me with coffee in hand.
4. I love the beach and would live on one if I could.
5. If you mix up the letters in my last name it spells soldier, which is ironic because I am married to one.
