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

husband, Christopher. We have 3 fabulous kids-Meghan-6,

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

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

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

valley girls � like for sure! :-) I am a programmer by day
and scrapbooker by night. I have two boys, three if you count

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.

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

Sara Dickey
August Featured Guest Designer

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

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!

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!
