My name is Sarah, and I'm a scrapaholic. My addiction to scrap booking began seven years ago when I was pregnant with my first child. I love scrapping. I do it at every opportunity. I have found that this creative process has enriched my life, my sense of the moment, my awareness of simple wonders. I have no desire to kick the habit! :) I am married to Bill, am the mother of two children - Bo and Emma, and I work part-time as a home health nurse. I am so grateful for the opportunity to be part of this wonderful team!

I have been scrapping about 6 years now, and I have finally found my groove! I love to ink anything and everything! and have a huge fondess for white space. I like to call my style layered, but simple. I thoroughly enjoy scrapbooking, being the family historian, and preserving all our memories for many generations to come.

Jill Geraghty - Groves
My name is Jill Geraghty-Groves and I am a SAHM of 3 boys Zane (12), Levi and Jonah (both almost 4). My twin boys have just started kindy in March so I am a free woman (for 5 hours) for three whole days a week! One of these I have devoted to keeping the house sparkling and the homefires burning...the other two, I have now devoted to scrapping! My scrapbooking has taken up pride of place in our formal loungeroom and so is contantly getting worked on. I scrap every day.
I have only been scrapbooking for 7 months but am completely addicted. I have had 8 layouts accepted for publication in Scrapbook Creations and Scrapbooking Memories - the first is due out next month (very exciting for me!).
I absolutely love the freedom that scrapbooking provides me a way to express my experience of life and how I see those who are in my life. Before scrapbooking I have always dabbled in something "arty farty" be it painting, drawing, sewing, etc., etc. I have always loved photography and now I have something to do with all those photos!
My very favorite scrapping obsessions at the moment is chipboard, ribbons and sewing, both machine and hand stitching.
I guess being self taught, adds new dimension to the many products already available. I try not to restrict myself to the way products should be used. I tend to like to shape things how I want them, not limit their use to exactly what they look like when I buy them.
I am sooooo exciting to be working with such a wonderful DT and can't wait to get my hands on some of these amazing US products! I hope I can bring a little piece of Australia to the DT!
Hi, I�m Susan.
I live in the San Fernando Valley; I am one of the original valley girls � like for sure! :-) I am a programmer by day and scrapbooker by night. I have two boys, three if you count my boyfriend of 9 years. I started scrapbooking in 1996. My son�s 1st grade teacher invited me to a CM party. I was hooked from that point on.
I love life. I love being me. I love my nickname (bucket :-) ) I love reeses peanut butter cups. I love raspberry ice tea.
I am so thrilled Crystle asked me to be on her design team. I can�t wait to share my life with you.
My name is Crystle and I am co-owner of Magistical Memories. I was born and raised in Connecticut and moved to California in 1999. I really miss the leaves changing in the fall, but I just love it here. (Mostly because I don�t have to shovel snow.) I am a devoted wife to Michael, we�ve been married for 14 wonderful years. We have two children, Justin and Adam. I have been truly blessed with a happy, healthy & loving family. I love driving my convertible to the beach, as a family we enjoy hiking, although we don�t do it as often as we would like. My true passion and my creative outlet is scrapbooking. I like that I am leaving a legacy behind for my family.
Stephanie Guerrero July Featured Guest Designer
Hi! My name is Stephanie Guerrero and I live in Atwater, California. I am a 34 year old mom of three. My oldest son Jake is 6 1/2 and my twins Zack & Nikki will be 5 in August. I have been married to my husband James for 8 years. I have been scrapping for about 6 years and up until a few months ago I was more of a "collector" than a scrapper. I am just finishing up my new scrap studio and I can't wait to start creating in it. I only started submitting in January and I am in the current issue of Paper Trends and will be in the September issue of Cards. Being asked to be Magistical Memories Featured Designer for July is so exciting and I am so honored to have been chosen. I can't wait to start creating!
Sara Dickey August Featured Guest Designer
I'm Sara Dickey, a Southern girl, born and raised in Virginia, who uses the word y'all a lot, even though I was an elementary school teacher for 9 years and know better. I'm currently the Household Manager for my husband of almost 8 years, my 4 yr old son and my 18 month old daughter. I started scrapbooking about 3 years ago to record my son's first year, but really became hooked after attending a CK convention this past August. It opened my eyes to a whole new world of scrapbooking. I like to call my scrapbook style "clean lined, with junk". I love embellishments,(especially cute chipboard shapes) but need the grounding of clean lines. I mainly scrapbook my family & friend's everyday moments and funny stories. I think the small everyday routines are what make us who we are, and are so important to document. I scrap all sizes, depending on my photos and the embellishments I am using. I have been fortunate to have my work published in Simple Scrapbooks, Scrapbook Trends, Paper Trends, & Correspondence Art. I'm addicted to coffee, popcorn and sweet tea- my scrapbook fuel. I'm so excited to be the Featured Designer for August!
Shannon Bastian September Featured Guest Designer
Hi! My name is Shannon. I have been married to my best friend, Keith, for almost 9 years now. I am also a sahm to our 7 year old son, Jarrett. I started scrapbooking shortly after he was born and was instantly hooked. I have been lucky enough to be published several times. Other than scrapbooking I enjoy reading, shopping for purses, photography, and shopping for purses. Oh and did I mention I like shopping for purses? I'm almost as addicted to purses as I am scrapbooking! And I am so excited to be the Featured Designer for September!
