Now it's time to let the team members introduce themselves.
Papercrafting is my passion and favorite pastime. I have been scrapbooking and cardmaking since 2003. I have been in love with creating art all my life. I started with crayons and construction paper and now I create scrapbooks/altered papercrafts. I am addicted to this craft and I love every minute. I work at Scrapbook Generation by day and scrapbook at night.
I enjoy teaching classes and design a monthly card club for Scrapbook Generation. I've been published in CREATE, Cricut magazine, guest-designed for October Afternoon, and have an exclusive line of acrylic stamps with Lil' Inker Designs. This is my second year on the CREATE team.
Palm Bay, Florida
I am married to my wonderful hubby of 15 years and we have six kids, ranging from 12 - 1. I started scrapbooking shortly after my first child was born in 2002. I am a stay-at-home mom and homeschooler, so I tend to scrap during my kids’ rest time. It helps clear my mind and get me through the rest of the day.
I have designed for Pebbles, and currently design for Bella Blvd, Simple Stories, and Anna Griffin. I have been published in Creating Keepsakes, Cards, CREATE, Scrapbook Trends, Scrap365, PaperCrafts & Scrapbooking, Scrapbook & Cards Today and various online publications.
I love art and photography and love to combine those passions with the hobby of scrapbooking. I love that I can combine the artistic side of myself and the storytelling side of myself in order to preserve memories for my children. I have a 10-year-old girl, five-year-old girl and 3-month-old baby boy and love to tell their stories.
My style is simple and clean, usually quite linear, and slightly eclectic. I come from an architecture background, so there is a definite linear feel to most of my scrap pages. I love the challenge that scrapbooking provides as well as the relaxation of just indulging my creative side. I love that moment when everything comes together in a way that just feels right.
I have been featured by Basic Grey, Scrapstreet's magazine, Club Creating Keepsakes, Two Peas in a Bucket, and Ella Publishing. I have been published in Creating Keepsakes magazine, CREATE, and was on the Sketch Support design team.
Ciudad Real, Spain
I’m 30 years old and from a small town in Spain. I’m a primary school teacher, and all the free time I have is dedicated to my little daughter, named Leire (you can see it in most of my projects) and my other passion, the scrapbook.
I am currently on the design team of Up & Scrap, here in Spain, along with six other partners. I’ve also been a designer for Escrapearte.
Lac LaBiche, Alberta, Canada
I have been married to my husband Matthew for six years. 2014 has been an incredibly momentous year for us as we welcomed our first baby, our son Madix this past March. Since Madix's arrival, our life has definitely been turned upside down,but in the best way possible. He fills our life with so much joy and laughter...with its shares of challenges thrown in for good measure. He has definitely become the main subject now in most (if not all) of my scrapbooking projects, and at seven months he is learning to love the camera and even strikes a little pose here and there.
I am currently a design team member for both Heidi Swapp and Ali Edwards Digital. My work has been featured in Make Pretty Stuff...An E*Idea Book (vol. 1 & vol. 2), CREATE, and Simple Scrapbooks.
I have two kids, five and six years old, and have been married to my wonderful husband for 10 years. I love to snap photos every week of their cute baby faces that keep changing every year and to jot down notes and stories about the big and little things in our lives. It keeps changing so fast! Sometimes it is hard to find the time to scrapbook, but pairing happy photos with pretty products just brings a smile to my face every time.
My design teams include CREATE, Scrappy Canary, and Traci Reed Designs. I’ve been published in Scrapbooking Memories, Scrapbook Creations, Life.Paper.Scrapbook, and of course, CREATE.
I am married to an amazingly supportive man named Keith. I have a daughter named Alyson, a son named Rilen, and one Pitbull fur baby named Roxy. We live in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
My design teams have included Creative Scrappers, Let's Get Sketchy, My Scraps N More, Scrapbook Challenges, and I’ve been on the guest design team for Queen & Co.
I’ve been published in CREATE, Scrap n Art, Creating Keepsakes, Life.Paper.Scrapbook, Bella Blvd Newsletter, Scrapbook News and Review, and Get Inspired.
Columbia, South Carolina
I live in Columbia, South Carolina with my husband, toddler daughter, and cat. When not answering to the call of "Mommy!", I work at a local community center creating innovative programs for families, spend time trying to tame my yard, bake bread and cookies, and of course, paper crafts! I’ve only been scrapbooking for about four years, but I studied art in college and loves to bring in knowledge of art and design into my everyday layouts.
My design teams include SEI, Paper Camellia, and me & my BIG ideas.
I'm Victoria from a wonderful city at the Black Sea. I'm 32 and this spring my daughter was born. This made me happy even more than I could imagine. I love to create, to dream, to read, to walk, nature, colors, music and I really love my life.
Last year I created for Fancy Pants Designs, Lemon Owl, 3rd Eye, The Rubber Cafe and Memory Maze. My latest publications include Scrap365, CREATE, and
Скрапбукинг. Творческий стиль жизни.
I started scrapbooking in 1994, when I had the cutest four-month-old baby boy cooing at me, and pictures piling up everywhere, begging for a home. Twenty years later, I have scrapped my way through a full, rich, blessed life mothering two sons, to a nest now emptying. I work full-time to support my two sons’ college life, and am now enjoying my happily ever after with my husband and best friend of 27 years, and my adorable Westie, Truman.
I found SG in 2010 and immediately fell in love with the sketches - and was later thrilled to meet the creative family foursome at a megacrop in Missouri. They are aptly placed in the Show Me state - and I love how my scrapbooking has morphed over the last four years as I have developed my style through their inspiring sketches and creative layouts. You can find me most days piddling around after work in Scrap Central with some paper, a sketch, my Silhouette Cameo and my photos, crafting the life I love.
My past design team work includes Sketch Support and The Crafty Scrapper, and guesting in CREATE magazine.
I am Katrina, and I am currently owned by four Cardigan Welsh Corgis, who appear in my layouts from time to time (or a lot of the time)! I've discovered as an adult that I love to create and craft. I was never the artsy type while growing up, unless you count cutting my doll's hair. I have been scrapbooking since February 2009, when I decided to make a mini-album for a friend. I love color, the more the better. And I cannot forget layers, love those also. I like to scrap everyday life and things...you never know what the subject of my project might be.
My design teams include Imaginisce, ThermOWeb, GCD, 3 Birds Design, A Flair for Buttons, and CREATE. I’ve been published in Scrapbook Trends, Cricut Magazine, CREATE, and several online publications.
I am a wife, a full-time mom to two active little boys ages two and four, and an avid crafter. I just endured my seventh (or more) lifetime move to a new state. Our family will be spending this year settling into our new home and exploring our new stomping grounds. I can't wait to see how the change of scenery inspires my scrapbooking.
Design teams have included CREATE and Sketch Support, and I’ve been a Pagemaps contributor.
Mt. Vernon, Missouri
I am a wife and a mom. I have a full-time job as an administrative assistant, but in my free time, when I am not scrapbooking, I backpack, bicycle and volunteer. I have been scrapbooking since my daughter was a baby; she is now a senior in high school. I am a self-taught scrapbooker and I love to dabble in a little bit of everything. My pages reflect that style which I usually refer to as "organized chaos." Sometimes my layouts are simple, other times I have to have something on every inch of the page. I just keep adding to the page until it feels balanced and finished.
Since I have been scrapbooking for so long, all of my daughter's pictures are carefully immortalized in my scrapbooks, I now stalk my friends for pictures and they happily hand over stacks of photos. My daughter willingly goes along with my crazy staged photo ops just so her scrappy mamma can have pictures for the next layout, although, my three dogs are not quite as happy about my enthusiasm for photography.
I have been published in CREATE, and I’ve also been a guest designer for Making Memories' blog and Allison Davis's Sketch Support blog.
Port Elizabeth, South Africa
I have been married to the love of my life for 35 years. I have three children who have blessed me with six grandchildren. My children and grandchildren inspire me to scrapbook and keep record of the memories we make together. I am the family "photographer" and memory keeper.
My design teams have included The Scrappiest, Sketch N Scrap, Scrap Africa, Scrapbook Studio, and Sketch Support. I’ve been featured in the Scrap Affairs publication.
Mary Ann Jenkins
I’m from sunny Southern California. I have three awesome boys, one sweet little princess, and a wonderful husband that are the subjects of many of my scrapbook layouts. I love recording the memories and stories we create in our everyday lives. I’ve been scrapping since 1987, when I heard a commercial on the radio about learning to preserve family memories. Creative Memories was just beginning as a company and I thought it sounded interesting! A few patterned papers and decorative scissors later I was hooked, and never imagined scrapbooking would become a passion, or that I would have a room in my home dedicated to the hobby. When I am not in my scrapbook studio making a mess, I enjoy flea markets, spending time with my family, shopping for hours at Target, taking my camera everywhere I go and bracelets. A girl can never have too many bracelets!
Design teams I’ve been a part of include Chic Tags, 3 Birds Studio, Imaginisce. Publications my work has been featured in are Scrapbook Trends, Create: Mini Albums, Cards, Cricut, Memory Makers, and CREATE.
In a former life I was a corporate attorney living in San Francisco. In 2005, after our daughter was born, my husband and I moved out little family to Arizona. In 2007 our little guy was born. I have been scrapbooking since 2005. What started as a way to create a baby album turned into so much more. I had always loved writing and taking pictures so when I discovered scrapbooking I was immediately hooked! I love recording memories and playing with new product as much as learning new techniques and studying the finer points of photography. I tend to be a clean and simple scrapbooker, but I like to add machine stitching and other fun elements to my layouts. I also enjoy card making, blogging and Instagram.
Design teams I’m currently on are Simple Stories, Therm O Web and Scrapbook Circle.
My work has been featured in Scrapbook Trends, Scrapbooking and Cards Today, Paper Crafts, and Jot.
I've been married to my partner in crime, Jason, for 14 years. That feels like forever and not very long all at the same time. I'm a stay at home mom to our two-year-old son. Riley keeps me on my toes at all times, but gives lots of great scrapping opportunities. We also have a 15-year-old niece, Becca, that we like snatch away when ever we can. We love to travel and are often on the go.
My scrapbooking time is kind of odd. I've been buying supplies for 14 years but making pages for significantly less time. I still thinking scrappy shopping is one of my favorite parts of this hobby; there is just nothing like pretty new papers.
I've spent a design team for the Stick It Down blog. I've also had layouts featured on the Allison Davis blog and Shimelle.com.
I'm from Taiwan and got married with my lovely husband, who is from a small town in Malaysia. Since he has worked in Singapore two years ago, I started my packing and flying life among Taiwan, Singapore, and Malaysia. I'm very close to my parents and my brother's family, so that you can see my nephew and niece very often on my layouts.
Design teams and guest spots have included Odd Bird Planet, The Scrapbook Carton, Color Combos Galore, and More Cards Challenge. My work has been published in Jot, Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking, and Get Inspired.
Glen Allen, Virginia
My name is Suzanna and scrappin' is my game! The cast that make up my crew includes my husband of 15 years, Michael, and our children; 12-year-old Nikolas and 8-year-old Mia. Belle, our cat, is backstage manager of this motley crew. We love to travel and be outdoors. The kids are year-round competitive swimmers so it's a rare occasion that you find us home. As I'm sure you can imagine, it's not often that I am lacking in pictures to scrap. Life is good!
Design teams include Pebbles Inc, Imaginisce, and Core'dinations. I’ve been published in Papercrafts & Scrapbooking, Scrapbook & Cards Today, Creating Keepsakes, Scrapbook Trends, Card, Create: Stamping, Create: Sketches, and multiple online publications, including CREATE.
Delft, The Netherlands
I live in The Netherlands with my husband, three kids (Manon 17, Timothy 15 and Mats 9) and our cocker spaniel, Jippie. I started scrapbooking about 11 years ago and am totally addicted; there’s nothing I’d rather do! I don’t have my own scrap room, but I guess you could say I claimed just about the whole house. I would love to spend every day scrapping from morning till night, but as that’s not possible I work part-time in a small HR office in town.
There are many reasons why I love this fabulous hobby; of course because I’m preserving our memories, but also because of all the new friends I’ve made and because it helps to clear my head in a busy and hectic life: when I scrap I forget everything and anything.
My design teams include Doodlebug, Imaginisce, Pretty Little Studio, Creative Scrappers, Scraptastic, and Scrapbook Magazine UK. I'm lucky enough to have my work published in Scrapbook Magazine UK, Scrapbook Trends, Create (Northridge Publishing), Inzpira Magazine (Swedish scrapbook magazine), Jot , Life.Paper.Scrapbook, Scrap Art Zine (Germany).
Sao Jose do Rio Preto, Brazil
I live in beautiful country Brazil in São José do Rio Preto. I've been creating ever since I can remember. My passion for crafting and scrapbooking grew stronger about two years ago and I've been crafting ever since then. I love to spend time creating in my studio and hanging out with my little daughter Marcella, who is my inspiration. I also have Sergio 27 and Isabella 20; both live in São Paulo. I have a wonderful husband, Marcello.
I love the shabby chic style. I enjoy making pages, now I start to make mini-albums and make my flowers. I also love to alter and deconstruct old/vintage items and fabrics.
My other passions are photography and cooking. I love to share my photos through layouts .
My design teams are Heart and Soul, Scrapping Outback, Frosted Design, and Nani Ke Ola. I have been published in Guia Do Scrapbooking, Albuns Decorados, Life and Paper, and Scrap Stree.
I am a stay-at-home mom to three boys that keep me very busy. They are involved in all kinds of activities (mainly sports) that keep me and the whole family on the go. I've been scrapbooking since I was 12 after a trip to California, but in the current style since right before my eldest son was born in 2001.
In January of 2011 I decided to get involved online, add my projects to galleries and submit for publication. I've been fortunate to have my projects published in Creating Keepsakes, Scrapbook Trends and Cards.
I grew up in a creative household loving art, design, and making things with my hands. I give all the credit to my creative mother who loved to paint, sew and draw. My mother also photographed her daily life and kept all of these photos stored and displayed in photo albums. Nearly 15 years ago I found her true passion in paper crafting and scrapbooking, thanks to the combination of being exposed to these creative activities and photographic documentation of my daily life.
I am married to Danny, my best friend and the love of my life. I’m also mom to a golden retriever named Lincoln and an american paint horse named Woody.
I have been a project designer in the paper craft/scrapbook industry since 2007 working for manufacturers Bo Bunny, Bella Blvd, Elle's Studio, Pebbles, and Jillibean Soup. My projects have been published in a variety of magazines and idea books: Creating Keepsakes, Paper Crafts, Scrapbooking & Beyond, Scrapbook Trends, and Cards.
I live in Birmingham, Alabama, with my husband of 36 years. I have three grown children, and four amazing grandsons, whom I adore. I began scrapbooking about 15 years ago when a friend gave me a gift card to the local scrapbook store. The rest, as they say, is history. When I'm not creating layouts, I also enjoy traveling and photography.
I am on the Nuts About Sketches design team. I've have had a layout published in the e-book "Story Telling Strategies" by Ella Publishing and Big Picture Classes.
I'm the mama of three wild and crazy kids (8, 5 and 3) who test my every mothering skill daily. I've been married for 11-1/2 years to my best friend George, who one hundred percent supports my love of blogging, design, papercrafts and photography. We live in Aurora, Illinois and have always been Illinoisans. We met in college at a track meet. I'm a small business owner who makes all things crafty, from party decor to accessories. You can find some in my Etsy shop. I also work for Bella Baby Photography and run my own photography business from home. Life is always busy, but I wouldn't have it any other way. Right now it's all about family, being creative in different parts of life and moving up in this world.
I’ve been on design teams for May Arts, GlueDots, LilyPad cards, and SRM Stickers, and have been a guest designer for Lawn Fawn, Freckled Fawn, Little Yellow Bicycle, Glitz Design, Avery Elle, and Neat and Tangled. I’ve been published in PaperCrafts, Creating Keepsakes, and Scrapbooks Etc.
Hartbeespoort, South Africa
I live on a bushveld farm with the God-sent love of my life, and two Jack Russell furry children, Black and Jack. After living in the city for a few years the tranquillity and beauty of mountains and a lake that surround us is simply inspiring. We can throw open the doors without any worry. Apart from the odd cold-blooded visitor looking for a warm spot to hibernate, we lead a pretty boring existence. We are truly blessed to be surrounded by nature while we spend our days creating beautiful projects, practising photography and laughing a whole lot!
I’ve been on design teams for Couture Creations, Scrapbook Challenges, and The Wholesaler. I’ve been published in Somerset Studios Take Ten Magazine, Somerset Studios Catch Up Issues, and various local South African publications.
I have been married seven years to my husband Ed. Our children are furry and four-legged. Ginger and Roscoe are both Shih Tzu mixes and my favorite scrapping subjects. I always say I want to come back in another life as not just a dog, but one of my dogs...they are spoiled rotten! I've been scrapping for just over seven years and started when I was walking in Walmart late one night and wound up in the scrapping aisle. I picked up a $20 kit and thought what a good idea for my college pictures. I went to Archivers the next day and was hooked!
I’ve been a member of the Hannah's scrapbook store design team.
I am a military wife, a stay-at-home mom (my children give me wonderful pictures to scrap with), with two boys and two girls. I was a teacher (high school science) before I stayed at home, and I love to scrapbook! My first love is my family; they mean everything to me. My second love is crafting, especially scrapbooking.
My design teams have included Paper House Productions, The Robin's Nest, Prima Ambassador, Momenta, and Susan K. Weckesser. I’ve been published in Let's Get Sketchy, Scrap n'Art, Stamping Stationary and Scrapbooking, Life.Paper.Scrapbook, and Scrapbook News & Review.
I was born and raised in Northern Ireland, but now live in another amazingly beautiful place: Anchorage, Alaska. I share a home with husband of 17 years, Dan, son Nathan (age 16 and becoming very independent) and daughter Lauren (age 14 and becoming increasingly antisocial). We are ruled by our three cats - Meow, Athena and Deshka, and a Chesapeake Bay retriever Willou. Apart from scrapping I also love to play racquetball, mountain bike, and travel.
I have been on design teams at a number of sites but most recently at My Scraps and More, Let's Capture Our Memories, and Sketches 4 All. I've had cards and layouts (paper and digital) published in Simple Scrapbooks, Scrapbook and Cards Today, Scrapbook Trends, Layout Blueprints, Scrapbooking Memories and Cards magazine.

My husband and I have been married for 18 years. We have two rapidly growing boys, ages 16 and 11. We also have two pets, a cat named Lucy and a dog named Toby. I work very part-time as a postpartum nurse and spend the rest of my time either scrapbooking or running.
I designed for Craft Warehouse (a local craft store chain) where I created layouts and other paper crafts for their store displays. I have been a member of several challenge blog design teams (currently, Child's Play Challenges and Scrap Our Stash). I have been with CREATE magazine since its inception in January of 2014. I have been published in Creating Keepsakes magazine and Let's Get Inspired.
I am a 50-and-something-years-old working dentist. I was born in the former USSR and moved to Israel 42 years ago. I am married for 32 years to a retired high police officer and mother of four children, two boys and twin girls. All of them are grown-ups and it gives me a lot of spare time for my crating. Other than paper crafting I am addicted to folk dancing: this is our mutual 16-years-long hobby. And the last, but not the least is our travel addiction: we visited more than 50 different countries and have more in our travel list. I am most versatile in styles and kind of projects, but I try to add some mixed media touch to each of my creations.
For last 4 years I designed for more than 20 manufacturers and for much more as a guest designer and for some I still design for my fourth and third years. Right now I design for a few companies around the globe, including Paper House Productions (USA), Tando Creative and WOW! Embossing Powders (UK), Inspired by Stamping and Meg's Garden (Australia), Rubber Dance (Norway). I was published in several online magazines, and published in print in Craft Stamper, Scrap 365, Idea books,Scrapboking Memories, Just Cards and Rubber Stamp Madness.
St. Louis, Missouri
Well, I guess it's a given that I love scrapbooking, card-making and anything to do with paper! I also love to draw, cook and take everyday life pictures, which all come in handy with my scrapbooking too. I'm a step-mom to Henry (19) and a dog-mom to three dogs that all are a huge part of my scrapbook pages. I'm married to the love of my life for over 10 years now and we reside in St Louis. I've been scrapbooking for over 20 years, before it was even popular and you had to cut images out of magazines.
CREATE in 2014 was my first design team gig, but I've worked with many companies in the industry when I owned my own paper manufacturing company and we had product swaps and blog hops. I've been published in Creating Keepsakes, Scrapbook Etc, Card Makers, Paper Crafts, Creative Spaces, Simple Scrapbooks, Australian Scrapbooker and CREATE.
I'm married to my high school sweetheart, have three children and a Great Dane. I love to travel, make cards and digi scrap.
I was a member of Can You Digi It design team. I've been published in CREATE, Creating Keepsakes, and the Stamper's Sampler.
Benoni, South Africa
I live in a city just east of Johannesburg with my husband Gary, two sons Byron and Kyle, and a talkative African Grey Parrot. My professional qualification is teaching where I taught children for many years – that was until I discovered scrapbooking. I am now fortunate to be able to combine my passion for scrapbooking and a business. I own SA Scrapbook Convention, an event company that organizes scrapbook and mixed media events in South Africa. In 2010, I attended Ranger University in New Jersey, USA and am a certified Ranger Instructor. My primary goal is to take scrapbooking on a never ending journey beyond mundane, repetitious themes and content.
I’m part of the Fancy Pants Designs team and a Prima Marketing Educator. My work has been featured in local magazines in South Africa: Scrapping & Kie magazine, Craftwise magazine, Cream of the Crop book. International publications include CREATE, My Prima Place, and the Fancy Pants Designs eMag.
I've been married to Marshall for over 14 years, but we've been together for over 20. He was my college sweetheart, even though we went to high school together. We have two beautiful little girls who are both autistic and nonverbal. Life at our house is never dull or boring! Both of our families live close by, so it's easy for family get-togethers. I am a stay-at-home mom and fitness instructor. When I'm not doing things with the family, I teach spinning and body pump at our local YMCA. I absolutely love helping people get healthy. Scrapbooking and exercise are both therapeutic for me. I love working with patterned paper, paints, stencils, and die cuts, and my newest obsession is my sewing machine!
My design teams have included My Mind's Eye, Chickaniddy Crafts, My Scraps & More, Creative Scrappers, and The Cut Shoppe. I've been published in CREATE and in the Bella Buzz.
