2020 Design Team: Rebecca & Soraya

Happy Hump Day! This week we’re getting to know our 2020 We R Design Team members, and today we’re highlighting Rebecca Luminarias and Soraya Maes.

Rebecca Luminarias


I live in Southern California with my husband (Arvin) and 2 young children (Augustus & Anemone). My crafting obsession is gift wrap & tags; I love to create my own, but I also enjoy seeing how others turn a plain box into a work of art. I’m an introvert who craves quiet alone time, but I also enjoy being around close friends and my family. I have a pretty active imagination which is a benefit in my creative endeavors.

I used to write a lot, using my crazy imagination to construct fictional stories, but eventually, that gave way to a new creative endeavor—being crafty!  When I began making cards 14 years ago, it was apparent that it was going to more than just a hobby, and while the process of turning it into a full-time job took some time, I’m so happy I get to do what I love every day.

Hello, my name is Soraya Maes, I’m a mom and wife living in the French Riviera, Southern France. I started scrapbooking in 2005 but as far as I can remember, scrapbooking has always been a part of me since I started documenting my everyday life and special moments in notebooks when I was 11. This is probably why I love journaling so much ! Now I’m a lucky full-time scrapbooker and I love everything DIY, hand lettering, organizing parties and taking tons of photos!

I’m so excited to live another fantastic year as a We R Memory Keepers DT member !
