We are thrilled to announce two new wonderful additions to our design team!

Help us give a warm welcome to Kelly Barron!
We love Kelly's clean, white space style.  She shares multiple scrapbook page process videos each month and is sure to inspire you.  We're thrilled that she has come aboard!

My name is Kelly and I am so excited to be a designer for My Creative Scrapbook. I am married to my best friend Mike, and we are blessed with two teenage children who keep us on our toes!  I have loved all things crafty for as long as I can remember.  My mother taught me how to cross stitch and latch hook, and they both were things that I loved to do throughout my childhood.  I have also dabbled in cake decorating and crochet.  I stumbled upon scrapbooking when my son was born in 2000 and have been in love with the hobby ever since I started.  There is just something so special about playing with pretty papers and embellishments that is just therapy for my soul, with the added bonus of documenting our lives.  My focus in scrapbooking is to document the little things, the everyday moments, and the stories that I don't want to ever forget.  If I am not scrapping, then I am usually reading or knitting. I have a couple of projects on my needles at all times, and always try to keep a small project ready to travel.

Help us give a warm welcome to Misty Willis!
We love the very pretty details that Misty includes in her pages as much as we love the heartfelt emotions that they contain.  We're so happy that she has joined us! 

I am Misty Willis,  a 39 year old mother of five...(3 boys & 2 girls)...aka Mommyof5kidz.   I have been scrapping for over 19 years since I became pregnant with my first child.  My style has changed and evolved over the years, but if I had to put a label on my style, it would be "Clean with Layers".  I have experimented with every technique, medium and new idea out there...but I have found myself to stay true to the clean layered look.   I like to put emphasis on my photos, while utilizing my papers and embellishments in such a way that it helps to convey the story that the photo is trying to tell.   I like to pay attention to the detail.   One thing I stress to new people starting out in scrapping is the importance of journaling.  My journaling is usually hidden behind a photo or tucked away in a secret place within the layout...but I ALWAYS journal.

I do mostly hidden journaling, not because I don't want to share my memories, but because I am VERY LONG WINDED! lol...and I do actually TELL the story.  I believe that the story is important...because when I am 80 with a failing memory, I will NEED those words to jog my memory!

I used to scrap in hopes that someday, when I am gone, my kids will be able to look into their photo albums and know that I loved them with all of my heart. Now, with the death of my oldest son, my scrapping has taken on a whole new purpose.  Scrapbooking my memories is not just a hobby for me, it is my mission.

Introducing Jackie Clark!
We came across Jackie's gorgeous work while surfing social media and promptly invited her to guest design with us.  We are so happy that she accepted! Just wait until you see her gorgeous work with our August Limited Edition kit.

Hello crafters! My name is Jackie Clark, and I live in beautiful Vancouver, BC with my husband and 3 sons. Between our boys' activities and my data-driven, analytical day job, life often has a frenzied pace, and I look forward to 9pm when life slows down and I can retreat to my craftroom and switch over to the creative side of my brain. I have been scrapbooking for 16 years, and my style ranges from grungy and masculine to bright and colorful. I enjoy scrapbook layouts, cards and altered art, and love to incorporate flowers, chipboard and paint on most of my projects. I am pleased to be guest designing for My Creative Scrapbook this month, and look forward to sharing my work with you!
