With 10 years of marketing experience, scrapbooking is a natural extension of my work world. After having my last child, I decided not to return to a corporate marketing job so I could raise my young children. I feel that I am now ready for a new challenge and would love to start merging my passion for paper art with my previous work experience in order make a career for myself in the scrapbooking industry. I am really excited to be the Design Team and Kit Coordinator for Scrap That! I have also recently been hired to teach technique classes at my local scrap shop and am looking forward to sharing tips and techniques through Scrap That's blog and my own at
Karen Wilson - Design Team
Hello! I'm Karen Wilson, I have lived in Northern Arizona since 2000, I'm originally from California. I'm a proud mother to 2 kids, Jayden(2) and Nicole(6). Between the two of them, they sure do keep me on my toes. I'm a newlywed, married to the most wonderful man, Brandon and am so blessed to have him in my life. I am hopelessly addicted to scrapbooking! My favorite techniques include layering and distressing. I have a love affair with flowers and bling. At the end of the day this is what helps me relax. It's my creative outlet. If I'm not scrapping, then I am spending my time with my kiddies, or watching movies with my husband...cleaning, cooking...(you know, those wife duties). =)
I am very honored to have been given the opportunity to design for Scrap That!. Visit my blog http://agirlsscrapobsession.blogspot.com/

Lady Grace (LG) Belarmino - Sketch Artist - Design Team
I am a scrapper from the Philippines with a Bachelors Degree in Fine Arts Major in Advertising Design. I am married to my very supportive husband, Regie Belarmino, for 2 years now and a mother to a 1 year old baby girl Hannah my precious model. I started scrapbooking almost a year ago (December 2008) a few months after I gave birth to my daughter. I decided to enter into scrapbooking to preserve my family's memories and to express my creative side.
My style differs from one layout to the other. I love experimenting and trying out new techniques as I create a page. I am into handcutting, distressing, photo editing and layering. My pages are simple and always make sure that the photo is always the focal point on my layout. More about me can be found on my blog. http://scrappinworld.blogspot.com/
Melissa Oeters - Social Community Coordinator
Hi, I'm Melissa Oeters and I live in Hinckley, Illinois. Hinckley is a very small rural area about 60 miles West of Chicago. I've been married for 23 years to a wonderful man and I'm a stay at home mom to our 4 fantastic children, ages 15, 11, 8 and 5! We also have 5 Havanese dogs and 1 over weight cat!
I'm been into scrapbooking for 16 years, I got hooked after being introduced to it at a Creative Memories party and I haven't looked back. I am a serious paper addict and I also have a thing for tools. I've often been called more of a collector than a crafter. Creating is the perfect outlet for me and you will find me in my office after the kids are in bed enjoying some "me" time with a diet coke and chocolate kisses.
I'm excited to help Lori build a fun, friendly, and inspirational forum for all of us to hang out at. Be sure you visit the forum and say hi!
