Hello, my name is Tracy McLennon and I live my crafty life on the east coast of Canada in Nova Scotia. My world consists of my talented band teacher husband, my 2 beautiful step daughters and our crazy rescue pooch Kya. I have been a scrapbooker for about 17 years now, I adore papercrafting! I would say my scrapbook style would be clean, classic and layered. Currently I design for May Arts Ribbon, DecoArt and I am the new DIY Crafting Bride columnist for DIY Wedding Magazine.I was so happy to be asked to be a Guest Designer for My Creative Scrapbook just a couple of months ago, and now to be a part of the My Creative Scrapbook Design Team.

I love the simplicity of scrapbook kits! So many of us have so little time in our busy lives to craft, and then when we do it can be daunting. It takes time to organize, plan and finally create. BUT, if you have a kit with all of your coordinating products and papers….all you have to do is add photos! This is what I like to do when going to crops, I just pack my kits, photos, cardstock and I’m good to go!

I am the 49-year old mother of four children, ages 16, 12, 11 and 9. Yes, I know I got started late in life having children, but that was God’s plan for our lives. That makes being a mother just that much sweeter to me. I have been married to my high school sweetheart, Mike, for almost 30 years. When I’m not working at home, I am a legal assistant for a local attorney and love my job. I really enjoy relieving stress with a nice, hot, sweaty jog.I started scrapping 6 years ago when I returned from a dream trip to Hawaii. I knew I wanted a scrapbook of my trip, so I picked up an idea book at my local scrapbook store and scraplifted my very first page.

Since then, I haven’t met a patterned paper I didn’t like. I love making use of the patterned papers by cutting out elements in each pattern to embellish my page. I take my Nikon D90 with me everywhere and my kids’ friends even pose for me now.I am so thrilled to be part of the team here at MCS! There are so many talented scrappers, not only on the team, but on the site itself. This is a privilege, and I am so excited.

Hi! I’m Marilyn Rivera and I live in Puerto Rico, a tropical island in the Caribbean. I live with my husband, Israel, and my two teenagers, Alexander and Paola Sofia. I started in this hobby 5 years ago and I fell in love with it immediately, It’s a therapy for me!I’m a fashion designer so during the day I’m surrounded by fabrics, sewing machines, threads and dress forms and when I’m not playing with fabrics, I’m playing with papers. I love to create!In my pages you will see a lot of techniques that I use for my dressmaking, such as pleating or draping.

I love mixing papers with fabrics, mediums. lace, feathers, paint, and pearls . I think my style is like a “modern shabby chic” with lots of layers, distress, textures and dimension . I’m so happy and excited to be part of MCS Design Team.My blog- http://marilynrivera.blogspot.com

I currently live in Rolleston (just outside Christchurch), New Zealand, with my husband of almost 31 years. We have a son born in 1993 and a daughter born in 1996. We moved to New Zealand from South Africa in 2010. I started scrapbooking over 20 years ago, where a friend decided to open a scrapbooking store from her home – literally 3 doors away from me. Very convenient, but not on one’s budget …..because I found myself just quickly whipping down the street for supplies!

It was through scrapbooking that I made my closest friends in New Zealand. Since moving to New Zealand, I have been on a few design teams for some of the local businesses here on the South Island, and for some of the challenge sites such as White with 1, Sketchabilities  and Let’s Get Sketchy. I am now currently on the design teams for 49 and Market, Dusty Attic, and Embellish It (Scrapbooking store here in Timaru). I was also on the design team for Kaisercraft 2019 and 2020. I have also taught a number of classes.

My go to is usually “pretty” – I love flowers. I also work alot with ephemera, chipboard and die cut pieces. I love fussy cutting (my friends say I am mad!) and love layering fussy cut images and flowers as part of my layout. I will dabble a little with texture pastes, paints, inks and sprays.

I am very honored to be a guest designer for My Creative Scrapbook. 

Hi everyone! My name is Marie. A little bit about me. I’ve been scrapbooking for over 15 years. I first started when I saw a friend’s album and decided to give it a go and never looked back. It has been in the last few years though that I really have found my stride and style. I discovered Cutfiles and then discovered that I enjoyed creating them too.

A change in circumstances involving a pair of ice skates and more broken bones than I’d care to mention, meant I suddenly had more time at home and so I joined lots of scrappy groups on Facebook and ‘met’ some wonderful people some of whom I am now lucky enough to call my friends. I am the owner and designer of Peartree Cutfiles which has just celebrated its 2nd birthday. I love scrapbooking because it allows me to capture all those precious moments with my family! 

My name is Melissa and I’m from New Zealand.  I’m married with 4 kids and have been scrapbooking for over 14 years.  I started because I wanted to make a baby book for my first child and couldn’t find anything pre-made that I liked.  When I discovered the online world of scrapbooking in 2012 I was hooked!!  I’m predominantly a traditional 12×12 scrapbooker, but I also love making mini albums, travellers notebooks and memory planning. 

My favourite techniques are using cut files, machine and hand stitching and I love to play with mixed media. I’m so excited to be a guest designer for My Creative Scrapbook! 

Hello, my name is Rebecca and I’m based in the UK, right next to the Chilterns in Buckinghamshire. I live with my husband, our 6 year old son and 3 cats and by day I am a Primary School Teaching Assistant. Living right on top of an area of outstanding natural beauty gives us plenty of opportunities to get outside and enjoy nature – fantastic for keeping a stock of photos ready to scrap! 

I’ve always been a creative person and when my son was born in 2017, I was looking for a creative way to document photos and memories. A friend of mine was into scrapbooking and so in 2018 I took the plunge and gave it a go – and it’s safe to say I never looked back! I very much like a ‘clean and crisp’ look to my layouts, with lots of white space – but at the same time, love getting messy with mixed media, so my style varies depending on my mood! 

I’m really excited to be joining the team at My Creative Scrapbook, and can’t wait to share my creations with you. You can see more of my work on my Instagram @preciouspagespapercraft and on my YouTube channel here: https://youtube.com/@preciouspagespapercraft

Hi, I’m Erika! I’ve been scrapbooking for 4 years. Whether it’s a new technique or size dimension, I love learning new ways to stretch my scrappy creativity. 

I mostly document in 12×12 and 8×6-ish albums, both in physical and digital mediums. I love rainbows, glitter, and happy things. I hope you’ll follow me along my journey as I soon will launch a digital store full of unique scrappy goodies.

Hi! I’m Namie(pronounced Nah me ay) and I live in Massachusetts.(Originally from Japan) I’m a wife and working mom to 3 children(one boy & twin girls)whom you will see in most of my projects. I started scrapbooking back in 2013.

My high school bestie used to send my kids beautiful birthday layouts every year, and I was so fascinated by them. That was, if I think back, the beginning of my creative journey. I love playing with mixed media products such as watercolor, alcohol inks, and all kinds of pastes. It’s food for my soul and I feel lucky that I found my passion in life.

I am absolutely honored and delighted to be a designer for My Creative Scrapbook!

My name is Dorota Kotowicz (Art Dorota) and I come from Poland.  
I have been living in the US state of Georgia for several months.
I became interested in Scrapbooking  15 years ago , from that moment  I began creating this technique. Scrapbooking is my great hobby and my job. 
I love making  journals, cards, albums and other art objects, whatever I make will always be layered and detailed.

I am drawn to vintage, shabby chic styled crafts which I love to create. I also appreciate the talents of mixed media artists and love the variety of styles and textures that it produces. I am always inspired to learn and try new techniques in both teaching and my crafts. I have been giving scrapbooking workshops for the past years.
