Social Media Team/DT Coordinator 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

 Hi, I'm Marielle LeBlanc and I am so excited to be joining My Creative Scrapbook design team ! I am a happy mom of two boys, a wife, a nurse, a lover of coffee and wine and a scrapbooker/ cardmaker. I live in Dieppe, New Brunswick on the east coast of Canada. Besides scrapbooking , I enjoy sewing, gardening, reading, hiking and camping with my boys.
 
Hello friends! I am Madeline Fox, a wife and mother, living in the suburbs of New Orleans. My husband and I have 5 children, 2 girls and 3 boys, with 20 years between the oldest and youngest! Not one to sit still, I have tried my hand at almost every creative pursuit known to man (quilting, smocking, cross-stitching, painting, and stamp carving, to name a few), but scrapbooking was the one that stuck. Beginning my love of patterned paper when our youngest was a baby, I soon realized that "catching up" was impossible, especially for an easily-distracted, slow-as-molasses scrapper like myself. But that's OK! With decades of memories to document, and making more every day, I enjoy finding new ways to combine paper, pictures and memories.
My style is an eclectic mix that I like to call "organized collage", where my love for neatness and straight lines is at constant odds with my fascination with messy ink, clustered embellishments, layered paper and ephemera. I rarely use a black and white photo, but enjoy the process of creating pages that compliment the color in my pictures. My biggest and most consistent challenge: to leave that white space alone!
Through the years, I have enjoyed working with several design teams, and have had over 60 scrapbook pages and papercraft project published in magazines and books. When not at my scrap desk, I can often be found poolside, cheering for my avid swimmer, with a book or camera in hand. You can also find me on my blogInstagram, and Pinterest!
  My name is Shona Keehn and I am from beautiful British Columbia, Canada. I have 3 children, lots of grand babies, my fur babies and a wonderful husband of over 30 years.I have been scrapping for many years but have just found my scrappy style in the last few years, Shabby Chic with a bit of grunge, and it is definitely something that I change up lots as I am always trying new techniques. I am also fortunate to have been on some amazing DTs and met many crafters/artists. What a wonderful industry to have an addiction for! I get so much inspiration from everyone in the scrapping world and I hope that you can get some from me.My blog: http://suchawonderfulmess.blogspot.ca/
I have been happily married for 16 years to Chad and we have 3 of the greatest kids - Chris, Joshua, and Gracie. We currently live in Raleigh, NC. I am blessed to be a stay at home mom and love every minute of it plus it gives me lots of time for scrapbooking. I love scrapbooking because it is a stress reliever for me and the creative process is food for my soul! I consider my style to be clean lines with lots of layering and adding in some fussy cutting, sewing, and lots of embellishments. I have been scrapbooking since 1995 but my love of paper crafts started when I was little. I always had a stash of construction paper, stickers (lots of stickers!), scissors, and glue lying around. I still have my sticker albums which I treasure to this day!  When I’m not scrapbooking, I love cooking, photography, and volunteering at my kid’s school.
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!
 

Sketch Designer

Hello!  My name is Laura Whitaker; I live in Ontario, Canada in a tiny lakeside community with my husband and our youngest son.  Altogether, we have three sons, a daughter-in-law and a darling grandson; plus two crazy bulldogges; all of whom are featured on my layouts!  My passion for scrapbooking and papercrafting began about fifteen years ago and is still going strong!  Through scrapbooking, I feel I can accomplish two things; a family memory album (or many) and an outlet for my creative side.  I love that this is such a social hobby and feel blessed to have made many friends through scrapbooking.   I love layers of patterned papers, embellishments of any type, creating sketches and playing with my Silhouette software. I also run my own challenge site called Stuck?! Sketches, and am fortunate to have been on the Design Teams for manufacturer's like Imaginisce and Simple Stories.  I am thrilled to be joining the My Creative Scrapbook team, working with Pam’s beautiful kits and I looking forward to sharing my creations with you!  Feel free to visit my blog, grab a free cut file (or all of them), and maybe play along with some of my sketches!  http://www.scrappinaroundtheclock.blogspot.ca/
Hi Scrapping friends! My name is Yvette Weber, I am so excited to be a Guest Designer for My Creative Scrapbook this month. I live in United State with my amazing husband of thirty years, one awesome son (11) and a dog name Titan! Born and grew up in Grenada in the Caribbean, move to the States when I was 15 with my family. I started scrapbooking in 2013 to document our family memories, after my Dad was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. When not scrapbooking you can fine me cooking,baking,decorating my home and sometime read a great book. I love incorporate lots for layers and cluster on my pages! Looking forward to sharing my work with you and hopefully inspiring you to create beautiful layouts!!!  
My name is Lee-Anne Thornton and I am honored to be asked again to be a guest designer for My Creative Scrapbook.  I live in Alberta, Canada with my husband Rick and my teenage son Clayton.  I also have two adult children, Shannon and Brandon that are both married and live about a three hour's drive away.
Scrapbooking is my passion, my creative outlet, and my way of documenting memories.  I love to create mostly layouts, but also cards and alter items for the home.  It's difficult to define my style, because I have many styles but I would say that it depends on my mood and what I scrapbook.  Sometimes it's clean and linear, sometimes it's mixed media, shabby chic, and sometimes trendy.  I love to create with my Silhouette Cameo and also love patterned papers, color, texture and layers.  Most of my layouts lately include either hand stitching or machine stitching, flair buttons, sequins, and wood veneers.  I love patterned papers and embellishments and cutting out designs with my Cameo.
Currently, I am on the A Flair For Buttons and Just Nick Digital Cut Files Design Teams.  I am honored to be published in several magazines including Scrapbook & Cards Today and Canadian Scrapbooker Magazines as well as several digital magazines.

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. J 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!
My name is Jenifer Evans known on social media and many scrapbooking sites and forums as "Jennaroo"! I'm married to my high school sweetheart and we have 5 beautiful kiddos!! I have been scrapbooking my children's memories and milestones since my first child was born 17 years ago. I got serious about the artistic side of paper crafting in 2010 and since, my abilities, technique and style have evolved and flourished. I am continuously growing and developing new and improved ideas and skills, and I absolutely love taking the opportunity to share my skills with others! I would say I have more than one style of scrapping because I don't want to limit my creativity, with that being said my dominant style is vintage shabby chic, although I have recently begun to take a serious interest in mixed media techniques. I pretty much go where the pictures and paper take me and I am super excited to have been invited to join the MY CREATIVE SCRAPBOOK TEAM, as I have admired Pam, her designers and fabulous kits for years and this is truly an honor! You can find my work here: BLOG: http://heldscraptive.blogspot.com/ FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100014207735392 PINTEREST: https://www.pinterest.com/jennaroo/
My name is Wendy and I live in a little village in the south east of the UK. I love living here. We are a five min walk to the local woods and a 15 min drive to the beach where we spend most of the summer. I live here with my husband, who I have been married to for 15 years and my teenage son. I have been scrapbooking for nearly 11 years now. I started scrapping about a year after my son was born and was instantly hooked. I love making altered items to display in my house, pages for my albums and cards. My favourite scrapbooking supply would have to be pattern paper. I would buy that above everything else, as you can do so much with it. I am really honoured to have been asked as a guest designer for my creative scrapbook this month and looking forward to being inspired by all your pages! Thank you for having me!
