 Brenshevia (USA)
 Hello all!  My name is Brenshevia.  I am the mother of 2 adult children and grandmother of 3.  I started scrapping back in 2007 when I was introduced to it by my God sister.  She told me about how she scrapped and how fun it was. I became so interested that I came home and tried my hand at it and loved it!  The rest as they say is history.  As you will see, my grand babies are the primary subject of my pages, I LOVE scrapping those faces!  I don’t really have a style per se; I pretty much scrap the moment so my page could be clean and simple or elegant and elaborate.  Each year I try to incorporate something new into my style in order to grow.   Please allow me to share my life's journey in pictures with you, by visiting me at Paper Memories.

Elina (Finland)
My name is Elina, and I’m a scrapbooker, card maker, paper crafter, and photographer from southern Finland. Scrapbooking has played an important role in my life for four years now. Summer 2009 I was browsing through internet and paper crafting blogs looking for card inspiration, and landed on a Finnish scrapbooking challenge site. I had no idea what the thing was about, but I decided to give it a try. And got hooked right away!
The busier my work days are at the office, the more time I try to allocate to my favorite hobbies. After a hectic day I love to get my hands messy with inks and gesso.  Being able to take even a short moment to myself and create something beautiful and tangible is very important to me.  And I have realized that scrapbooking  is the best way to keep work stress away!
I’ve been married for 10 years and we have two children aged 5 and 7. I love photographing my kids, and documenting our daily life on my layouts is an important part of my hobby. My kids don’t mind being in front of the camera, and you will see many pictures of them in my layouts.

Elizabeth ~ "Lizzie" (Canada)
My name is Liz.  I am the wife of a wonderful and supportive man who I've known since I was 15 and have been best friends with ever since.  I have 3 amazing daughters who keep me busy and feeling blessed.   I am a science nerd and have spent a great deal of my life in the science profession.  I have had a passion for photography and preserving memories since I was a kid and have been a year book editor both in high school and university to share this passion with others.  I took this passion to scrapbooking over 10 years ago and have been loving it ever since.  I have no idea how to describe my style of scrapbooking other than I love layers and colour!  I love to dabble in many different styles and try new things!  If I were granted 3 wishes, one of them would be to be able to sing.

My name is Joefil Cate. I live in Las Vegas, and I am a stay @ home mom, married to a wonderful husband who supports my scrapbooking. We have a five years old beautiful daughter named Chelsey, and her photos are my favorite to scrapbook. I started scrapbooking four years ago and fell in love with it right away.  I am now officially addicted!

 Lynne (USA)
I started scrapping in the early ‘90s, and although I enjoyed the process, I made very few layouts. It took me 5 years to get one album done! Fast forward to 2004; a divorce and a major move back to Florida, changed all of that. Funny how, my scrapbook supplies were the only arts & crafts items that I brought with me. I worked on a few pages during the next few years, but concentrated more on home decorating, sewing, and floral arranging. While out shopping one day, I picked up a magazine that inspired me to venture into a new art form – collages. Still working on that one! Of course, if you are making collages, you need pretty papers, stamps, inks, all of the lovely supplies you need to do scrapbooking! At about the same time, my daughter, Ashley, announced that she was pregnant. Well, that was it….I had to document her pregnancy and the baby shower, and the birth, and the footprints, and the smile, and the…….everything!!! Now, I’m hooked! Scrapping has become a way of life for me. Not only is it my creative outlet and escape, it has also helped me to regain some sanity in my hectic life. I’m always looking for new ideas and techniques to try out, and to pass on. And I welcome the challenge to get out of my comfort zone, which is romantic chic, whether it’s grunged up, shabby chic, retro or classic, it’s definitely my go-to style. The last few years have been very exciting for me, with several scrappy surprises!! My layout, ‘Mr. Bunny’ was featured on the Webster’s Pages Ning Site.  I had a GDT spot for Graphic 45, Flying Unicorn and Scraps of Elegance, as well as DT positions at Snobby Walrus, Posh Design Scrapbook Store and at Scrapbudz. I am currently on the DT for Twisted Tuesday and Flying Unicorn. I have learned so much and have been inspired by many scrappers & crafters, and I am looking forward to learning & sharing more!!

 Majo (Germany)
Hello, I’m Majo Wybranietz. I live in Germany with my husband and our two lovely kitten. I started scrapbooking in 2008 and was addicted in a hurry. I’m an “all-rounder”,  I scrap Layouts, mini books and cards, love to create tags and ATC’s and get my hands into mixed media projects. I love trying new and different things and techniques.  When not crafting, I enjoy reading a thrilling book and working in our garden. I'm so excited to be a part of the 1-2-3 Get Scrappy! design team! Please come and visit me at my blog or see some of my creations at Pinterest!

 I have been scrapbooking for about 10 years and still love every aspect of it, from the creativeness to the friendships formed in the worldwide scrapping community! I love trying new techniques and styles, but the important focus, for me, is always the photo. When I started scrapping I had teenagers, then along came the weddings and this year, grandchildren. So many photos, so little time!! I will never run out of inspiration….or supplies!!!

and then there's me....
Melina (USA)
the founder and owner of this little ole blog
 I live in Alabama with my husband Brandon and kiddos, Aaron (13) and Bethany (9).
I have been scrapping for 15 years. I fell in love with it when I attended a Creative Memories party with a friend. I also like making cards and mini albums but scrap pages are my first love. I tend to scrap in chronological order....I'm kinda OCD that way. I feel so accomplished when I finish an album, even though I know there are 300 pics waiting to go in the next one! LOL
