Lisa Andrews

Hello, I'm Lisa Andrews, owner of Scrapbook Circle. I have been married to my awesome husband for over 17 years and have 3 children ages 9, 11, and 14. When I'm not busy scrapbooking I enjoy reading, hanging out with my family and baking treats.

I started scrapbooking over 12 years ago. Like so many, I was inspired to start scrapbooking after the birth of our first daughter. I have always had a interest in photography (ever since getting my Fisher Price camera when I was about 8 years old) and I loved organizing those photos in those bad news magnetic albums.

Scrapbooking is such a wonderful way to celebrate life and I feel blessed to be able to preserve our family memories through this fantastic hobby!

Diana Waite

Diana Waite

Hi! My name is Diana Waite I have been married to my best friend for over 17 years, and have 3 amazing kids. I have been scrapbooking since I was 14 years old. I like to challenge myself often with new techniques, and trying to use up my stash! I also LOVE to take lots of pictures, and enjoy telling the "story" through them.

When not scrapbooking I enjoy being at my kid's sporting events, riding bikes, experimenting with Pinterest recipes, playing board games, sometimes sleeping, reading, and going to the gym.

quilting. a design team choice

Today I would like to talk a little bit about quilting….with paper.  I come from a LONG line of quilters.  Except my quilting is done with paper–I think I feel more comfortable with paper because if I mess up with paper you can throw it away vs. your material… ANYWAY, for my layout I want to […]

Hi! I'm so excited to be affiliated with Scrapbook Circle! I've been a design
team member since the Scrapbook Circle started in 2006 and take joy in watching it grow.

I actually started scrapbooking before it was called scrapbooking. I have
"albums" using nothing more than printer paper and Crayola markers from my high school days. (15 years ago!) If I can ever get caught up with my current life, I'm going to have to redo all those early albums.

I'm 33 and I have a wonderful husband(Dave) & 3 kids -- Eden (7), Josh (5), and Teya (2). I love to read and to scrapbook (naturally). I'd love whatever comments you have on my layouts. I'm always looking to improve!

Dapper Dan Dots

Good morning! I love the brown dot paper included in this month’s kit. The dots getting bigger (or smaller depending on how you look at it) reminded me of my kids growing and getting so much bigger! So, I used it a few times in this layout of my kid’s starting school again! Oh how […]

I am a happy mother to three energetic, wonderful boys and wife to an amazing, supportive husband. I began scrapbooking in high school and became seriously addicted when we started our little family. Besides recording precious family stories, scrapbooking is a creative outlet that never ceases to energize and inspire me. When I am not scrapbooking or creating for my Etsy shop, Precocious Paper, I am choreographing and teaching as a professional dancer and actively serving in my church. I am thrilled to be designing for Scrapbook Circle and sharing my passion for scrapbooking with you!

Audrey Yeager

Hello everyone! My name is Audrey Yeager and I am so THRILLED to be returning as a Design Team member for Scrapbook Circle! I have been in love with SBC kits for a VERY long time. I am a stay-at-home mom to a 4 year old and 2 year old, and a former high school biology teacher. We recently moved back to the Syracuse, New York area from Texas. Now I get to scrap my kids in all 4 seasons again! I have been scrapping for about 7 years, and have worked for several kit clubs, online stores, and manufacturers. Lately I have been dabbling with art journaling and using different media on my layouts like paints, mists, stitching and whatever else I am in the mood for. When I'm not scrapping, I enjoy running, reading, playing volleyball, watching movies, cooking and just being outside! I am looking forward to working with this amazing team!

Rebecca Keppel

Rebecca Keppel

In a former life I was a corporate attorney living in San Francisco. After my daughter was born, my husband and I decided to move our little family to Arizona. We are still adjusting to the extreme heat, but overall we love the family atmosphere here. In 2007 our little guy was born. They are now 5 and 1/2 and almost 4. I have been a stay at home mom for the last 5 and a half years. I started scrapbooking about the same time our daughter was born. What started as a way to create a baby album for my daughter turned into much more.

Although I have been "journaling" and taking tons of pictures my whole life, it wasn't until I saw scrapbooking as whole that everything clicked for me and the obsession began! Besides recording memories and playing with fun product, I love to learn new techniques and learn more about photography. My favorite way to add texture and dimension to my projects is by sewing (either hand or machine) because I love the homemade, unique touch it adds. Besides making layouts, I love cardmaking and making gifts for family and friends. I enjoy blogging projects and photos --come say hi, if you have a chance: http://www.myclutteredcorner.com/

I am so thrilled to be on the Scrapbook Circle Design team and work with Lisa's AMAZING kits.

I'm a mommy to 2 adorable girls and have a hubby who gave me a super cool last name and who also supports my crafty obsessions. I've been scrapping memories since I can remember, but I joined the new scrapbooking revolution after getting married in 2002 but became obsessed with the hobby in 2010. I can usually be found in my craft room playing with papers, glue and embellies. My other obsessions include being a HUGE Rob Thomas fan as well as scuba diving all over the world, even when it means a random encounter with hammerhead or nurse sharks!

One Item Wonder: Studio Calico Frames

The Studio Calico frames are a fun take on the Polaroid trend. Diana and Ursula put the frames to use on recent layouts in uniquely different ways. Let’s take a look. Ursula layered photos and the frames, but then added texture with stitching and patterned paper. The frames make creating a grid-style layout easy, too! Diana used […]

Jenni Calma

Jenni Calma

Hello! My name is Jenni Calma. I retired from Architecture to stay at home with my two children; a girl of 9 and a boy who is 6. I started keeping my first “scrapbooks” in college which were my studio sketchbooks. I used them more like smashbooks - that started my love of combining journaling with photos, drawings & paper. My father’s obsessions were cameras & photography and he was adamant about recording family history and heritage. I think I am doing the same thing, only with patterned paper and embellishments!

My husband and I met in Architecture school and have been best friends for more than 21 years, married for 12. Aside from my craving to create, I am a typical Virgo, a little OCD, (except in my craft room where chaos is welcome), an avid reader, Pinterest addict, a lover of dogs, peanut butter (preferably with chocolate), cardinals, red wine, anything Italian, and my children’s laughter.

Hello everyone! Today I’m with a mini album with photos from our last walk in snowy, wintery valley, near Cracow. I really love to make minis, I’m always taking so many photos, so I rather put them in an album than make tons of layouts. In this month’s kits I found lots of valentine themed […]

Jamie Leija

Hiya! My name is Jamie Leija (said Lay-ha). I’m a native Texan who loves to travel and scrapbook. I’ve lived in London, Thailand and Spain and have been blessed to travel to so many more places. Traveling and scrapbooking go hand in hand for me. I love that one hobby supports the other and that scrapbooking lets me relive and share all of those fabulous memories. I've been scrapbooking (as we know it) for the past 17 years. My first job in high school was for a local scrapbook store. I loved working there! And it helped me learn to love sharing this hobby with others. In college, I worked at Hobby Lobby (can you see the theme here :) and then another local scrapbook store. I've been published in Northridge Publishing's Scrapbook Trends, CARDS and Create publications. When I’m not scrapbooking or on a plane, I’m spending time with my kitten, boyfriend or adorable nephew.
