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-

My name is Marta Lapkowska.
I was born and raised in Poland. I am currently living in Ireland and have been for the last nine years. I am a proud mum of a beautiful girl Emily. My inner soul is truly a creative person. Since I remember I have loved art and craft and have a passion for innovative techniques. I love playing around, experimenting and creating unique pieces. From cards and tags to layouts, mix media canvases, art journal and altered objects.
For the past two years creating is my way of living – so far it’s the best journey I could have blog:

My name is Monique Liedtke and I live in The Netherlands together with my husband of 20 years and 3 wonderful kids: 1 daughter (20) and 2 sons (17 and 12). I work part-time (15 hours a week) in an HR office 5 minutes cycling from home. Except for scrapbooking I do have a few other hobbies: reading, cycling, watching English detectives, traveling, walking, going to the cinema and aqua jogging.

I’ve been scrapping for more than 10 years now and can’t imagine life without it. From the moment I was introduced to this wonderful hobby I was hooked and that has never changed. Scrapbooking makes me happy, it’s what I love to do most. I love playing with paper, I love the colors, the designs, the smell & feel of paper. I love to collect everything scrapbook related. I just get so happy looking at scrapbook supplies! I also love to browse the web to look at other scrappers’ blogs and craft rooms, to look through galleries, magazines and Pinterest … everything. I’ve even chosen a part-time job instead of full-time so I would have lots of time to scrap!

Creating scrapbook pages is what I love and do most but I also love to make cards, home décor pieces, mini albums, decorate planners etc.

My style is colorful and detailed with a lot of sewing, layers and digital cut files.

I’m so very happy to be asked to guest design for My Creative Scrapbook and look forward to sharing my work with all of you. Thanks Pam for this wonderful opportunity!

  Hi, my name is Patty McGovern-Pugh. I lived many years in Dallas now I live in Topeka, Kansas. I started scrapbooking when my daughter was born. I love being creative and working with all the beautiful papers, embellishments and trims to create layouts, mini albums, altered home decor items and custom albums. I am the owner’s twin sister,  we love to scrapbook and share our memories with our family. I have taught scrapbooking in multiple scrapbook stores and at scrapbooking conventions. I am published in the Scrapbooking for Dummies book. I have a son age 20 stepson age 20, daughter age 27 and two darling grandkids! I love the My Creative Scrapbook kits and I am honored to join the design team for this wonderful kit club. Their are so many talented designers on the MCS team. You can find me at

Hello! My name’s Maja Nowak, I live in the South of Poland with my university-sweetheart husband and two fantastic sons. I came by scrapbooking quite by chance in January 2008 – and that was it! Before that, I’d tried cross stitching, decoupage, knitting, painting and drawing, but scrapbooking gives you the freedom of using and combining many crafting techniques and materials, and perhaps that’s why I’m still in love with it JI feel most at ease in the vintage shabby chic style, but being a member of several design teams, and a mom of two boys, I sometimes have to “struggle” with other styles, though with various results 😉 My sons are the main subjects and inspiration of my “private” scrapbooking creations, but being a romantic&vintage style lover, I don’t hesitate to use pastel colours, lace or flowers in my LOs J On the other hand, creating to order fills my need to make something typically feminine from time to time.

I love all scrapbooking tools and materials, but I’m a hopeless stamp collector and pattern lover, and I can’t just go by a beautiful design on paper.

I am truly honoured and thrilled to be a Guest Designer for My Creative Scrapbook this month. Thank you so much for the chance to share my project with you!

Hi my name is Zelda and I’m originally from Newfoundland but now call Halifax my home with my husband and three children ages 6,13, and 23. I have been scrapbooking now for about 12 years I love the creativity that it gives me and also the social atmosphere that comes with scrapbooking I’ve met many crazy talented ladies at a crop or two.

I work part time at a craft store which one could say enables my hobbies I also love to knit, enjoy gardening and camping with my family.
I am very excited to be joining My Creative Scrapbook Design Team Thank you so much!

My name is Elena Martynova and I live in Russia, Astrakhan. I have two kids aged 19 and 14. They are the most beautiful of my creations!  I love to do practical things, and just beautiful. Wife, mother, passionate, adored felines.Have the care of three baleen-striped. I really appreciate in people sincerity, kindness and sense of humor. I dream to travel a lot. But not like too long to leave home. At home I’m always fine. Scrapbooking is a hobby that makes my life happier and more interesting. Gives a lot of communication, new friends, the joy of self-realization in work. And of course, happiness of owning a scrapbook treasures. Even in the fifth year of fascination with the scrap does not get rid of the habit to buy any particular paper or embellishment to just “own” for aesthetic pleasure.   My blog

Hi everyone! I’m Natsuko and I’m from Japan. I have been scrapping for 10 years now, and I’m still deeply in love. Most of my layouts are about my loved ones, especially my daughter. I want to keep moments (special or not!) so we can remember them after she grows up. I love looking at other people’s layouts too, imagining  what kind of story is hidden there. Colorful is my basic style but I’m not hesitant to try new techniques and I’m always looking for new inspiration. I also love taking pictures and meeting people (especially scrappers!) from all over the world. It’s such an honor to join the MCS design team, and I’m thrilled to work with all the talented designers here! Thank you xxx

Hello, Marcia Dehn-Nix ( pronounced Mar see ah ) here. I am married to the most wonderful guy and we live in Minnesota (where winters are way too long and summers are way too short). We have three adult kids, lots of fur babies and grand fur babies, the result of me being a stray magnet as well as a foster failure for a local rescue. I have been scrapbooking for about 25 years. You will see me use lots of cut files on my layouts as well as layers. 9-5 I am a software engineer. At night I love to play with paper. I also enjoy gardening, cooking, listening to audiobooks, and walking with my dog.

Hello everyone, I’m Teri. I live in the warm, sunny and beautiful state of Arizona. I’m the wife of an amazing man for 27 years now, and the mother of a grown son, whom I will always consider to be my baby.

I have been in the creative industry for as long as I can remember. It’s all I know, and I’m not happy unless I’m creating. I’ve been retired from Art Directing for a few years now, but being crafty is something that I will never retire from! I have a passion for paper crafting and cardmaking. I specialize in three-dimensional cards and also pattern mixing. I love combining patterns that most wouldn’t combine, and making them look amazing!

I currently design for Photoplay Paper, My Creative Scrapbook and Polka Dot Orchard. I also have a small card company called Papier Fetiche. But when it comes to being creative, it seems that I can never be busy enough!

Hi!  I’m Jeanne Jachna.  I live in Northwest Indiana near Chicago with my DH and one very large fur baby – an Akita I call Miss Moriko.  I like to read, garden and cook but I have been completely captivated by card making and paper crafts.  I love to mix and match different pattern papers and can’t resist a rainbow of colors. My time crafting is a sweet escape and a fun way to express myself.   I’m blessed with the many friends I’ve made who share my paper crafting obsession and I can’t wait to share my creations with you.  You can find me on my blog A Kept Life or here on Instagram.

I am Donna Espiritu from the Philippines currently residing in Saudi Arabia with my husband and daughter. I am 43 years old and a Computer Engineer by profession. I decided to be a stay-at-home mom for a while to take care of my daughter. Now she is 6 years old so I decided to go back to work just at the beginning of this year. I started scrapbooking around 2004 after I got married. I wanted to make my own wedding album which I didn’t finish but instead, I made and finished my first niece’s baby album. From then on, I got hooked!I love everything crafty but my first love is scrapbooking. My style gears toward having layers and clusters and very girly. I love flowers and adding little bits of details like clusters and layers of embellishments to any of my projects. I love trying out new things and trends, but I always make it a point to make it my own style and not just simply copy other people’s ideas.

Hi, I am Claudia Caroline Ressler, and I am so thrilled to be joining My Creative Scrapbook as a designer while working with a team of talented designers from all over the world.

I have been passionate about scrapbooking, card making, mini albums, and all other kinds of paper crafts for many years. During the past years, I have come to find my style, which I like to describe as classic-innovative, as I love to incorporate a variety of materials and techniques into my layouts.

A native of Germany, my country of residence is now Canada, a country I have come to love and appreciate with my husband and three adult kids. When I am not scrapbooking, you can find me in my large garden, which often serves as the source of inspiration for my layouts and mini albums.  

I feel very honored to be part of the MCS design team, and I hope to bring some inspiration to and connect with like-minded crafters daily.

Fun facts about me: I am color-obsessed, speak six languages, love sewing, play the piano, and travel as often as my hobbies let me sneak away.

My name is Cristina and I live in NY. I’m a mom of two 20-somethings, grandmother to a very active 14-month old, and full-time graduate student. I have always loved collecting old books and studying words, so when I discovered through paper crafting that I can mix my love of words with beautiful papers, I was hooked. I would describe my style as shabby and feminine, which basically means I’m addicted to crackle paste, fussy-cutting, and using way too many flowers! When I’m not crafting or studying for school you’ll probably find me playing with my adorable grandson, reading a favorite book, or watching a really cool opera.

Hi my name is Michelle Whorwood and I live just north of Auckland in New Zealand with my hubby Gary, 3 kids Liam (aged 17), Taylor (aged 11) and Aimee (aged 9) and our puppy the naughty lab x retriever Lucah (she is a girl!).   
We live pretty busy lives between the kids, the dog and I work part time at a high end building company doing all the admin and accounts for about 15-20 hours a week.   Both of my girls do competitive cheerleading here in NZ so a lot of my time is spent hanging out watching them train in the gym.   When I am not scrapbooking, working and organising the family, I am exercising and I am passionate about health and wellness recently qualified as a Personal Trainer.
I originally started scrapbooking when my eldest was 2!!  Gosh it has been a long time!  My layouts and style has definitely evolved over the years and I enjoy creating layouts with lots of layering of embellishments and white space with a hint of mixed media.   Now that the 17 year old isn’t that keen on having his photo taken these days my layouts revolve around the girls and the adventures of the dog as well as family holidays and cheer events.   I love documenting our lives but also scrapbook for the creative outlet.

I’m excited to be guest designing for My Creative Scrapbook – I really love creating layouts from kits as it makes life easy by having coordinated products already packaged up for you ready to go.   I can’t wait to share my creations with you all.

I’m Claire, a UK based scrapbooker and long time lover of pretty paper. I’m based down on the south coast of England, where we benefit from some beautiful beaches and a national forest. It gives me plenty of photo opportunities to scrap! I live with my boyfriend and my fur baby. Both of them feature heavily in my layouts, so you’ll get to know them pretty well 🙂  I’ve always enjoyed being creative, and originally began with card making before discovering scrapbooking which now totally has my heart.I enjoy all kinds of styles and techniques, but clean and crisp tends to be my ‘go-to’.  I also enjoy dabbling with mixed media every now and again. I’m so pleased to be joining the My Creative Scrapbook Team, working with such beautiful kits and talented creatives that inspire me everyday. You can see more of my work on my Instagram page @scrappysoulmate
