New Design Team Member
Lynn Shaffer
A little about me, I am the proud mommy to 3 beautiful children, whom are the inspirations for almost all of my layouts. I am married to the love of my life Dave, who supports me and my addiction to paper. I am energetic, bubbly and a little on the fun crazy side. As well, I have been fortunate to be surrounded by an amazing set of ladies who have enabled me and my love of crafting. Recently I have begun to teach classes at my local scrapbooking store SGD. I also work full time as a pricing analyst for 3M Canada.

I began scrapbooking in the summer of 2009 during my second maternity leave. My goal, originally, was to document my kids, their growth and preserve those precious memories. But I soon fell in love with the creative process, and my pages will have a lot of hidden journaling. My style is … well I have various styles from a clean to linear to shabby chic, I am now getting into mix media. From a creative perspective, I love inking, layering, distressing, masking, fussy cutting, matting, stamping and.. ok there is not too much I don’t like to do. Sketches play a huge part of my creative process. I find scrapbooking and crafting very calming and therapeutic. I am a paper hoarder. I will be honest. Papers are my passion. I have a hard time using it at times, so I buy double. Ok who am I kidding, if I see, I will love it, and smell it, and drool over it and then hide it in the special paper drawer to oogle over it later.


We have terrific guest designers this month!

Guest Designer
Brenda Cazes

Hi everyone! My name is Brenda Cazes. I live in Alberta, Canada and have been married to my best friend for 20 years. We have two adorable little boys who are the stars of my scrapbooks.

I began scrapbooking in 2006 after going on a Caribbean cruise. Unfortunately, I dropped my camera into the ocean on the last day of our vacation and lost all of our photos. I still have nightmares about it! Luckily, we had friends with us and I was able to use some of their photos. By the time my first son was born in 2007, I was completely addicted to this wonderfully therapeutic hobby.

I would describe my scrapbook style as clean, layered, and whimsical. I love bright, fun colors and no layout is complete without machine stitching, buttons or twine. I’ve been fortunate enough to be published several times in Canadian Scrapbooker magazine and Scrapbook & Cards Today.


Returning Guest Designer
Kristine Davidson

Kristine Davidson lives in New Brunswick, Canada. She works full time as a sales and service agent for an airline company and loves to spend her spare time creating. She also loves anything chocolaty, city skylines, and sunsets.

Kristine has been an avid scrapbooker for over 7 years and addicted to pop dots, diecuts and of course pattern paper. She is the founder of a scrapbook sketch site called Creative Scrappers, and currently a design team member for Jillibean Soup and Simple Stories. She is thrilled to be our guest designer this month and looking forward to providing you with some inspiration to create!

Guest Designer
Wendy Antenucci

Hi my name is Wendy Antenucci and I am from FL. I am married to my wonderful hubby of 14 years and we have 6 kids, ranging from 12-11 months. I started scrapbooking shortly after my first child was born in 2002. I am a SAHM and homeschooler so I tend to scrap during my kids rest time; it helps clear my mind and get me through the rest of the day. My style has developed, over the years, until I am confidant to say I am a scrapper that adores white space with lots of layers and I am always on the lookout for the perfect way to embellish my pages that connect with the memory I am telling. I design for Bella Blvd and Simple Stories. I have been published in Creating Keepsakes, Cards, Create, Scrapbook Trends, Scrap365, PaperCrafts & Scrapbooking, Scrapbook & Cards Today and various online publications.

So many wonderful creations. I enjoyed seeing the different styles of each designer. There was not one stop that I did not enjoy. I feel uncomfortable about singling out my very favorites because I felt all the designers did a great job and I do not like to compare them. Suffice it to say that I think you have a great design team and wonderful kits.
