Without further is the team....

we look forward to having our readers come back often to see the reveals

Patti McCarthy

Hi!! I'm Patti and I live in Alberta with my husband Glenn and our two boys Joshua and Jared. These three special guys are the centre of my photographs and scrapbooking obessions!
I love 'white' space, layering, lots of embellishments on my designs and have been told by many they can recognize a 'Patti' layout anywhere... I def. take this as a compliment! Scrapbooking masculine layouts is def. in my 'realm' but I've been pushing myself more to be more versatile and be intouch with my feminine side. lol!! MOJO is my best friend and no matter where I am or what I see I am inspired by everything is some shape or form.
I am excited to begin this new chapter in my "creative life" with my friend Karan. We have a lot of great ideas, surprises and inspiration coming your way. So sit back, turn it up and get ready to START ME UP!!!

Karan Gerber

Hi Everyone my name is Karan Gerber, I reside in Sebringville, with my husband Glenn of 15 years and two boys Elijah 13 and Galen 10. I love clean designs but don't mind junkin' it up. I love texture and you will often see dimension and a variety of techniques on my work. I mainly work with a format of 12x12 but I love mini albums and altered projects too.

My pages revolve around sharing my love for my family. Having only a handful of pictures of myself growing up, I feel it important to capture as many memories with my two boys and hubby as I can. My passion for this hobby definitely shows in the pages I create. I’m never at a loss for inspiration to scrap. I gain inspiration from magazine ads, clothing, color palettes, other scrappers, on-line galleries….just about anything in my everyday living.

I am excited to be involved in a new venture with my friend Patti and I look forward to bringing you some great ideas and inspiration for your own scrapbook pages. We have some uber talented Guest Designers lined up and I cannot wait to Start YOU up!!

Michelle Kerrigan

Hey there fellow scrappers, my name is Michelle and I am very excited about this new blog. Back in 2004 in when I started scrapping it was so hard to find “boy” themed embellishments and papers, and being a mom of a beautiful son....he was really all I had to scrapbook. Since then our family has undergone some changes and we are now a blended family with the most wonderful man Rob and his 3 beautiful daughters. The problem was....I did’t know how to scrap girl. I would walk into a scrap store and go straight to the boy stuff and often forget that I have 3 girls to scrap too. Luckily this has been an excuse to fulfill my need to buy scrappy supplies, and I have an overwhelming amount of girlie stuff now too.

After taking a break from scrapbooking, my return in 2009 was committed to scrapbooking strictly for myself. Back in 2006 I was contracted to an album for someone and after so much time and effort, I just had no mojo left. So now it is all about my family, and I am loving it! Since my return I have made a Design Team, invited to be a guest designer for a LSS, and I am very excited about being invited for publication for the first time in the upcoming Memory Makers book due out in May 2011.

I am very excited about being a Designer here! An all boy blog....I am so in my element!
This is going to be a lot of fun and I know that there will be a lot of inspiration going on around here, can’t wait to see what is in store.

Sandie Vincent

Hi I'm Sandie, I'm 34 and from the UK, I'm married to Rich and we have 3 children together. I started scrapbooking in July 2005 and soon became hooked on a very addictive hobby. I have been on various Design Teams, and now teach scrapbooking regularly at my LSS and at a local craft club. My passion is paper, and I love finding new ways to use it on my pages!
