Describe {Stacey Caron} in three words.

Passionate….Creative ……Driven

What were some influences that helped shape the collections?

The Classic Spellbinders® collection is influenced by the history of Spellbinders® brand. Historically, the Timeless elegant look is the way I’ve created the Spellbinders lines since the inception of the Company. We refer to the entire foundation of our dies, beginning with the Nestabilities® “the core” giving paper crafters the ability to mix and match die designs, and build their collections systematically. It’s very exciting to finally be introducing our own stamps that match the basic Nestabilities® shapes. My second collection, Rouge Royale Duex, is the continuation of my popular Rouge Royale Collection. Both inspired by beautiful florals and the intricate architectural details I experienced while visiting Paris, France. Last but not least, my personal favorite is the Rebel Rose Collection which is inspired by the wild &fun side of all feisty females! It’s a combination of free flowing curves and edgy motifs that empower women to express themselves with intention and make no apologies!

Where is your favorite place to create or get inspired?

When it comes to finding inspiration, my favorite places to visit are the U.K., France and Italy. I totally become immersed in the beauty of each country with its rich history, elegant cultures and of course, the amazing architecture. BUT I find a lot of comfort creating in my home studio or outside in my backyard among my plants and flowers. Usually with my Saint Bernard, Samson, and Australian Shepard, Gabriel, are right by my side!

What are your favorite ‘must have’ pieces in your upcoming collection?

My favorite must have pieces for the Classic Spellbinders® Collection are the new Nestabilities® stamps because they coordinate perfectly & beautiful with the basic Nestabilities® shapes. For the Rouge Royale Duex Collection, I absolutely love the pockets and the bow dies. I can envision lots of cool ways to use those particular designs. When it comes to The Rebel Rose Collection needless to say I have too many favorites … in my world that means I would have to have them all!
