About me - I'm a mum to three gorgeous kids that are growing up waaay to quickly and regularly feature in my layouts - they are my favorite subject. I'm married to a wonderful, arty man who has been my best friend since we started 'hanging out' 14 years ago.
I've loved photography, drawing, collecting memorabilia and journalling since 1988. I discovered scrapbooking in 2003 when was pregnant with my first child, and although my style has changed since my first Creative Memories party it was love at first embellishment, and at least 30 pizza boxes later (that's my storage solution for now), I still love sitting down late at night and arranging my photo's on a piece of 12x12. I also make the occasional card.
Hi! I'm Ana Castro from Brazil. I live in a city localized in an Island in the south of Brazil, called Florianópolis. I'm clinical engineer and I have a company that manages medical equipment for hospitals. I am married to my husband Rafael and am mom to my 5 year old son Daniel, who is the subject of most of my scrapbook pages!
I began scrapping in January 2009, mostly creating 12x12 layouts and some altered items. I’ve started by accident while looking for a gift for my niece. It was love at first sight, and I've couldn't stop! At beginning I used spent hours looking at magazines and blogs, just watching and learning every details from some page. The idea to preserve memories are the most important thing of scrapbooking to me.
Nowadays, the scrap occupies a very special place in my life and it brought more creativity to my daily routine. I feel that my vision of the world took another look and new colors. I love (sometimes obsessively!!) new collections and new materials. My favorite techniques are distressing, stitching and adding dimension to my pages. I'm not sure how to define my style because I like to try new things every time. I think my style is clean and whimsical. Boy’s pages are my passion because I have a cute (and funny) model at home and a lot of pictures to use, after all, my pages are dedicated to my son and my family. I think my pages are funny and colorful. I find inspiration in my life and outdoor.
I'm an architect and discovered scrapbooking when I had a handicraft shop, I've been in this area for five years and I love everything related to it. I'm a scrapbook teacher and I'm part of some Design Teams in Brazil and France. I am very happy to show my work in this group that has great and dear friends participating, as Ana Castro and Dani de Sá.
Thank you for this opportunity. I hope I can contribute greatly to the success of this great blog. Let's play!
I started scrapbooking in 2003 after spending 6 month in the US, but I was more a shopper than a scrapper for years!! Now I try to find the time to sit down and scrap a little every day after the kids are asleep. So instead of sitting on the couch watching TV, you will find me at the scrap table along with my beloved computer. I enjoy the inspiration from other scrappers via chat, forums, Pinterest and Google to keep me going. I am a challenge junkie, you won't find any layouts on my blog that I haven't created for a challenge or are DT assignments. I just need something to spur me. That is also why I love crops. Almost every Thursday evening you will find me at my LSS and at least once a month at crops.
I mostly make layouts because I don't have friends or family that appreciates a card and I will not sit and work with projects for them to be thrown away. The same things go for altered things, they will be crushed by my two energetic kids, so that leaves me with layouts and the kids love to sit down with their album and look at the pictures. I love colors, gesso, chipboards and I go nowhere without my black pen.
Hello, I am Dani de Sa, I am Brazilian, married and mother of two beautiful children who are my greatest source of inspiration.
Since I was a teenager had daily and paper cutting, but scrapbooking came into my life even in 2006, by chance.
I was searching the internet for something to make the birthday invitations the first year of my 2nd daughter, and I fell in love. At first, I learned a lot on the internet, where I also met many dear friends. Scrap to me is fun, memory and friendship.
Paper is my favorite scrapping supply. I always enjoyed photography, and looking through the scrapbooking record the moments of everyday life of my family, our history. I love using sketches and I'm very happy with the opportunity to be part of the Creative Scrappers DT.
My name is Erin Blegen and I'm 28 years old. My husband Josh and I have been together for 5 years and we have 3 beautiful children together: Wyatt (4), Gunner (19 months), and Aspen (6 months). We live in a small cabin in the woods of north eastern Minnesota, USA, and we love anything outdoors: hunting, fishing, four wheeling, swimming, gardening, etc...but indoors, my passion is most definitely scrapbooking!
I first tried it out scrapbooking in 2007 when Wyatt was born, completed one album, and then quit until Gunner was born in July 2010. Since then, I haven't stopped! I love experimenting with different techniques and mediums, but I would say that my "style" is shabby/chic. I love distressing, layering, and flowers!! But I'm also known to have a messy artsy side and can turn out a grungy, paint-splattered page too :).
I'm very excited to be a part of the CS team! I've long admired the sketches and talent of the designers here, and cannot wait to start offering up some inspiration to the CS following!
My name is Geneviève Leblanc, aka picotine. I am 35 and I live in Quebec City, a french-speaking town of Canada. My husband and I have three little boys, Nathaël (7), Jean-Félix (5) and Florent (3).
I have always been an artistic person; I used to dance, sing, play music, etc. I've been bitten by the scrapbooking bug at the end of 2005 without knowing that the creative fever would be as strong and tough! Not a day goes by that I don't have a picture, a title, a sketch or a concept in mind. I had to slow down some my activities due to my hectic life, but still needed a passion. That is when scrapbooking became my only hobby, my pride and joyful addiction.
My scrapbook style is marked by sweetness, rich in humor and full of boys photos!! I like any kinds of challenges but mostly sketches. I am currently part of two design teams.
I am a scientist in the day, a superwoman in evening and a scrapper by night ;-)
I am so proud and honored to be a designer for Creative Scrappers. I hope that my work will provide inspiration for everyone!
My name is Jenny Evans from Ponca City, Oklahoma. I graduated from Oklahoma State University in December 2007, but have luckily been able to stay home with my family! I'm married to my amazing and supportive husband, who is also my high school sweetheart! We have 2 super sweet and adorable boys, Daniel (9) and Jacob (3) and one little hyper yorkie!
I dabbled in scrapbooking on and off for a few years after my oldest was born, and re-fell in love with it in April/May 2011. I have been full force since then and haven't looked back! My boys are my sole inspiration, though I am branching out and learning to scrap myself and other family (my adorable niece and nephew).
I feel that I am now slowly settling into my "style", and making my way through this scrapbook world while preserving all of these amazing memories in the process! I am so excited to be here and be apart of this amazing group of woman!!
Hi, everyone! My name is Kaori Fujimoto. I'm 32 years old and live in Japan with my husband and three children. I worked as a veterinarian before marriage, I'm currently working on a pathology study of the animals now. I have been scrapping since 2006, as a diary and growth record of my children. I feel happiness when I see the "diary" with my children.
My scrapping style is to adds dimension to a page.
I often incorporate patterned paper to cut out, various kinds of embellishments, pop-up, several colors mist and ink, on my page.
Since I love sketches, I'm so happy to be part of this team! I hope that my work will provide inspiration to others.
My name is Kasia Krzymińska, however in scrap world I'm using my nickname Czekoczyna. I'm 22 years old and I live in Warsaw, Poland.
I started scrapbooking in 2010 and loved it from that moment on. Now I am addicted to scrapping and everything that comes with it. When I create I use a lot of fabrics, embellishments, buttons and lace. I love mixed-media and balanced colors.
I would describe my style as delicate but I also like to learn some new techniques. I adore adding layers and texture to my layouts.
I´m so happy to be a part of the Creative Scrappers DT and can´t wait to start working with the fabulous sketches.
I'm optimistic and look at the world through rose-colored glasses and all about trying to infect it.
With scrapbooking I started first in 2008, looking over millions of blogs and fell in love. I love all the colors of the rainbow, and my scissors ;) and I try to showcase this throughout my layouts.
My name is Marie-Anne Kimpton and I live in Quebec city, a French-speaking town of Canada, with my husband Alexandre and our three children – Jules (7), Paul (5) and Béatrice (almost 2).
I began scrapping 5 years ago. In my scrap, I love using contrasting colors, polka dot paper and flowers. But above all, I prefer to use recycled materials or handmade ornaments, It gives originality to my layouts and it goes with my green values.
I am currently part of two design teams (for an online store and a color combo blog challenge). But my biggest realization has been to be part of the editorial and design team of a magazine. When I'm not scrap for my dt projects, I do challenges... Because I love doing challenges !!! That's how I discovered the wonderful blog of CS. I am super excited and honored to be a designer for Creative Scrappers, and I hope that my work will provide inspiration for everyone !
I would describe my scrap style as a little on the layered clean and simple side, although I do love to ink too! I have tried all kinds of styles and it seems that I have finally found my "thing" which is awesome because now when I scrap it just kind of flows.
I am also now a self proclaimed pinterest addict, and can often be found creeping around there for inspiration and ideas. I'm super excited to be part of the CS team and hope I can inspire someone as much as Creative Scrappers inspires me!

My name is Nicole Nowosad and I live in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada with my scrap supportive husband, 2 boys and 3 yr old princess . When I am not busy working for the Federal Government of Canada full-time and being a Parent Council, Soccer Mom, I spend every moment doing something related to this wonderful craft.
I am very lucky to be part of some design teams, including Jillibean Soup and as a sketch artist for Creative Scrappers ! I love bright colours, sewing and playing with paper. Using sketches are one of my favourite jumping points when I need inspiration! I am excited to be back with Creative Scrappers as a layout designer for another term.
Since I've started scrapbooking and doing such things as playing with paper, cutting, gluing, slashing and misting; I really don’t remember how I lived before! I am looking forward to creating for you and want to share my creativity in layouts with you.
Scrapbooking to me is not only a way to preserve my memories but, it's the way I do Art.I am married to a wonderful man for over ten years, who is thankfully very supportive of my scrapping and crafting addictions. We have three beautiful children who are the primary subjects of my scrapbook pages.
My scrapping style usually is clean, but eclectic and I adore papers. I love anything that adds texture and dimension to a page and I love to create my own embellishments. I love painting and distressing my works. I am super excited and honored to design for Creative Scrappers, and I hope that my work will provide inspiration to others!
My name is Shannon Morgan, I am a set in my ways Northern Girl transplanted to the South. After almost four years, I am still in denial about that. I am very lucky to be a stay at home mom & have two kiddos who keep me on my toes. Paddy who is my sweet boy, lover of animals & all things Star Wars Clone Wars... Mackenzie is his younger sister who has a colorful, vast vocabulary, a wild imagination. They are often complimented by their crazy dog sisters...Cinna and Meg. Rounding out our family is my doting husband who puts up with my scrapping obsession & insane need to watch tv in our room in closed caption at night when I can't sleep, but am too comfy to go watch tv in the family room.
I love to chronicle our everyday adventures & as Mackenzie likes to say, "Collect our memories."...I think it's more like hoard them. :) If for some chance I am not scrapping or creating some sort of paper good...you can find me reading, nose buried deep in a book, or baking...& then pretending to exercise said baked goods by leisurely walking through our neighborhood. :)
I live on the south coast of Australia, in a lovely little town by the sea.I am a SAHM and married to a wonderful man, who while supportive, doesn’t quite understand my obsession with this craft. I have three terrific children Dylan 15, Courtnie 10, and Hayley almost 3.
My obsession with scrapbooking started when i saw a friends album, and having just given birth to my second child i thought that it would be a great way to record and remember them growing up. Who knew back then that scapping would become such an important part of my life, that’s nearly 10 years ago now. With a gentle push from my friend I started a blog, and started submitting my work to on line challenges and to magazines, and to my amazement, have been published in several magazines and have even won a few challenges.
My name is Stephanie, I started scrapbooking in February 2008 with a serious addiction to anything Sassafras related! In 2008 I attempted a wedding album for my Sister (2 years late, ahem, but who's counting?) and I really enjoyed the process and wanted to learn more, so I signed up for an altered album classes and was hooked!
My style is a bit whimsical and i love doodling and ink on my pages. I love bright bold colors and of course my little bit of whimsy embellishments.
I love getting lost in the process, hands full of paint and ink, and how one creative thought builds on another so naturally. I tell my family, its like Arts and Crafts in my basement EVERY night!
Hello everyone! My name is Véronique Gagné from Montreal, Canada. I've been in love with my man for almost 8 years now and we have two cute little cats.
I've been scrapbooking since 2006: I was trying to make a graduation album for my Interior Design course. Since then, the passion continues to grow!
I like doing this a lot! I'm a creative person and I always need to do something with my hands. My designs are very colorful (just like my scraproom!) Memories are very important to me, I love photographs so I think scrapbooking is a good way to combine everything together.
I'm really proud to be a part of the Creative Scrappers team and also to be featured in the first Ebook of Kristine! I can't wait to share my layouts with you!
Let's give these girls a warm welcome shall we?
