her bio:
I'm a 21 year old college student studying to become a preschool teacher. At school I volunteer with local kids, study in preschools, work as a writing tutor, and run the craft club with my friend. I’ve been scrapping for about 5 years since I went on a trip to Italy and wanted to document it. I love everything with papercrafting from altered objects to LOs to cards. But I very passionate about cards because to me they are mini works of art.

her bio:
I am a savvy scrapbooker and I love playing with texture and embellishments, paints, stamps, metals and fabric. I embrace change in the scrapbooking world and am always on the lookout for new and unique products and new techniques to try. The majority of my work is done in a 12x12 format although, I also enjoy making unique mini books, tag books, cards and albums, and just about any other paper arts projects I stumble upon.

I believe scrapbooking is an outlet to share our creativity and our individualities, as well as our love for our families; a way to meet wonderful new friends; share our joys and sorrows; to simply be the person we were created to be and express ourselves with paper and altered art.
