I'm a graphic designer living in Colorado
with my husband, Mike, and two children, Hayden and
Riely. My scrapbook designs have been published in
various magazines and I recently authored the ebook,
Design Workshop from Ella Publishing. I've taught at
True Scrap, Masterful Scrapbook Design, and was the
design coach for Ella Publishing's Spring Boot Camp.

and Lily Bee Design, and I'm also a Garden Girl for Two
Peas in a Bucket.
everyone! My name is Paige Evans and I've been scrapping
for 13 years, ever since I was 16 years old and got my
very first job at a scrapbooking store in Redmond, WA
called Yesterdays. They didn't even have an application,
just took my name and phone number. I wonder what my
life would be like now had I not walked into that store
that fateful day because so much of my life has revolved
around scrapbooking since then! I work from home as a
mom by day, and by night I manage the American Crafts
Blog and Design Team, am on the Studio Calico
Contributing Team, the Ali Edwards Digital Creative
Team, and a blog contributor for Elle's Studio. I also
love teaching scrapbooking workshops all around Europe.
Basically, I LOVE scrapbooking! I've been married to
Chris for 7.5 years and we have a son named Fox (4) and
a daughter named Jane (2 1/2). We live on an Army base
in Grafenwöhr, Germany - my husband is a dentist in the
Army and we're loving our adventures here and travel as
much and as often as we can!

When it comes to design and décor, Kelly Goree is one eclectic woman.
She constantly strives to incorporate different elements she loves,
different styles of design, and different colors or palettes into her
home to keep things interesting and exciting (much to her husband’s
dismay). Her love of color, quirky elements and bold patterns carries
over to her self-proclaimed “classic with a twist” scrapbooking style.
Kelly started scrapbooking in early 2000 just after her oldest son was
born (She is now the busy mom to three boys!). In 2006 she had the honor
of being a Memory Makers Master and since then has worked with many
leaders of the scrapbooking industry including BasicGrey and Queen &
Company. She currently enjoys being on the design team for Scrapbook &
Cards Today Magazine and PageMaps as well as having projects featured
regularly in various scrapbooking and paper arts publications.

My name is Nicole Nowosad and I proudly live in
Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada with my husband and three kids
that keep us very busy. When I am not running to school
parent council meetings, dropping my daughter off at
dance or cheering at my boys soccer and baseball games,
I am holed up in my craft area working on a project.
Scrapbooking must be in my DNA, as my father scrapbooked
my parents honeymoon many years ago, and so it was meant
to be for me! I have always been interested in crafting
all kinds, but when I was introduced to scrapbooking
over 15 years ago, I was instantly hooked and haven’t
looked back since.
I am lucky enough to have had my work published in
several magazines including Scrapbook & Cards Today,
Scrapbook Trends. I am currently a design team
member for Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine, Jillibean

to a Marine Corps husband that literally keeps my toes
moving around the US and now around the world! We all
currently live in Okinawa, Japan a small island south of
mainland Japan. I fill my days here with beach time,
photography field trips, running with my girlfriends and
of course scrapbooking those adventures. I have also
been bitten by the travel bug pretty hard since being

planning and scheming!

I'm Jaclyn Rench, a stay-at-home mommy to three awesome
kids and wife of 12 years to a super supportive
husband. By day I spend my hours kissing boo-boos,
refereeing squabbles, planning
playdates, packing lunches, shuffling children
from here to there, and trying to figure out what in the
heck to fix for dinner that is healthy AND something my
kids will eat! Once my kids are tucked into bed,
however, you can find me at my crafting desk into the
wee hours of the night and early morning, documenting
the stories and memories that come out of those
non-stop busy days. I hope someday my scrapbooks will
give my children a good reminder of the memories of
their childhood and a sense of just how much they are
While scrapbooking has
proved to be a rewarding hobby for me, I'm also proud to
have designed for such notable and inspiring companies
as Pebbles and Bella Blvd. And I don't think the thrill
of seeing my pages published in crafting magazines like
Scrapbook & Cards Today, Scrapbooks Etc, Cards, Create
and Scrapbook Trends, will ever officially wear off.

my kids. Our current favourite is UNO. I am thrilled to
