I've been scrapbooking since 1998, but got serious about it in 2003 after the birth of my daughter. I love this hobby for a couple of reasons. First, I love that I am leaving such a wonderful legacy for my family. My kids love to look back at the pages I've created and remember moments in their childhood. The second reason I love to scrap is that it's a total creative outlet for me. d
I love playing with papers, patterns, colors, embellishments and techniques. When I scrapbook, I tend to use layers, either with paper or embellies, distressing (typically with ink), and I love using lots of fun and creative journaling techniques. Several years ago I started faithbooking and love to incorporate scriptures or songs of praise into my work, as well.
I've been married to my super supportive husband since 1995 and we have three children: Zack (born in 1997), Kaleb (born in 2000) and our princess,Taylor (born in 2002). When I'm not scrapbooking, I'm an 8th grade language arts teacher and total soccer mom.
I'm Jenny Dziekan, I've been scrapping for REAL since the birth of my oldest son, 12 years ago, but I started playing with pictures, pretty papers and glue way back in high school. My ever growing-up-way-too-fast brood of FIVE keeps me motivated to scrap so that we can always remember these deliriously foggy and mind numbing, I mean, precious days of ours. With a hubby who flies airplanes off an aircraft carrier in various warzones, making memories AND recording them is all that much more precious to us. I absolutely adore working with kits. I enjoy the creative push it gives me to create with a limited amount of stuff and really come up with something great.
My name is Andrea Slee or Drea for short, and I'm from Southern CA, currently living in Reno, NV with my husband and our 11 year old son. I'm a stay at home mom with a true passion for scrapbooking! I love trying new techniques and making my own embellies, especially flowers!
Hello! My name is Megan Smith and I live in Portland, Oregon with my husband Andrew and baby boy Liam. I am an avid scrapper and have been scrapping in one form or another since high school. I've been published and have served as a designer for several sites. You can find me on the scrappy boards under my alias Daisymeh! Besides scrapping, I enjoy hiking, skiing, camping, cycling, photography, music and NPR.
My name is Karen Tarpley and I am a former teacher, turned stay at home mom and now part-time professional photographer. I picked up photography as a hobby back in the days of film and started scrapbooking to find a way to display all of my prints other than in frames. I discovered the online community of scrapbooking about 4 years ago and it has reignited my love of scrapbooking. I also picked up the hobby of photography again (but digital format now) and turned the hobby into a business a little over a year ago. My girls, photography and scrapbooking - all my passions :)
