We're thrilled to have the lovely and talented Céline Navarro as one of our guest designers this month and are excited to get to know her better today! Be sure to follow Céline here at Studio Calico.
Hey there! I'm Céline Navarro. I live in the South of France, near Montpellier. I'm a 37-year-old mompreneur into crafts, essential oils, traveling, and Haribo candies.
I started blogging in June 2005 mainly to share my passions for crafting, including scrapbooking and mixed media, but also about traveling, fashion, and home decor—any creative adventures I might encounter, to be honest. My husband and I moved to Canada for a year when we were younger (gasp!), so I blogged about that, too.
Today, I'm a full-time blogger and a Gold Leader in my Young Living aromatherapy business. We help over 700 families to live a healthier lifestyle through the use of essential oils and essential-oil-based products. Life changing for them—life changing for me. My aim today is to help moms like me reveal their best potential on a personal and professional level.
I've taught a lot of creative scrapbooking, mixed media, and photography workshops over the last twelve years in France and around the world. I had the chance to give workshops all over Europe (Italy, Spain, Germany, England, Switzerland, Belgium, Ireland, Denmark, Norway, the Netherlands), Israel, South Africa, Brazil (three times), Panama (twice), the United States (around 15 times), Canada (three times), La Reunion island, New Caledonia, Singapore, Australia...
I used to work as a freelance designer for Studio Calico, American Crafts, Prima Marketing, Two Peas in a Bucket, Fancy Pants Designs, Pink Paislee, Sizzix, Ali Edwards Digital, One Little Bird Designs, Blitsy, and many more.
I also collaborated with brands like Nokia (through their Nokia Connects program) and DreamWorks Animation. I'm also a Pinterest influencer for Hello Society, and I'm currently working on a project with Amazon! Yep!
I'm also the author of my own scrapbooking book, Scrapbooking Inspiration et Techniques published by Le Temps Apprivoisé.
My website talks about my world: the life of a southern French mompreneur, tips and tricks for bloggers and influencers, my travels, being an aromatherapy expert, crafting, home decor, and more!
You know how much I love my Studio Calico Panner Kit (I think I've been a subscriber for over a year now) but this is probably one of my favorites! What do I like the best? Definitely the washi tape! OMG! It's so cute! But I also love love love the papers and the stickers. The color palette this month is everything I love; it has yellow (one of my favorite colors), clouds, sunshine—and the palette of white, grey, yellow, and blue makes me happy!
April Planner Kit | First Page – I've been loving my SC main Planner Kits more and more each month and this one is no surprise—I love it! Every single item makes my creativity jump and I couldn't wait to get started when I opened my box!
April Planner Kit | Month Overview – One of my favorite things in the "Be Happy" Planner Kit? The WASHI TAPE! OMG! And it's so easy to cut! And I love anything yellow so I'm in love with the alpha stickers!
