Short bio: I've been scrapping for 10 years now, ever since I was 16 years old and got my very first job at a scrapbooking store in Redmond, WA called Yesterdays. They didn't even have an application, just took my name and phone number. I wonder what my life would be like now had I not walked into that store that fateful day because so much of my life has revolved around scrapbooking since then. I work for Northridge Publishing (the makers of Scrapbook Trends, CARDS, Create: idea book series, Cricut Magazine, Cricut Magazine idea books, and Signature Series), manage the American Crafts blog and design team, and am a Garden Girl for Two Peas in a Bucket. Basically, I LOVE scrapbooking! I've been married to my better half Chris for six years and we have a 3-year old son named Fox and a 1-year old daughter named Jane. Currently we're living on an Army base in Grafenwoehr, Germany. My husband is a dentist in the Army and we're loving our adventures here!

Favorite thing to scrap: I love scrapping about my son and daughter. They're my inspiration!

Favorite American Crafts product: Hands down, patterned paper!

5 fun facts:

1. I gave birth to my daughter Jane naturally but NOT by choice! Had L.A. traffic been any worse she would have been born in the car!

2. My favorite show (well, one of many!) is X-Files and we have a son named Fox because of the character Fox Mulder.

3. We used a have a LOT of animals (chinchillas, finches, a parrot, fish, rabbit, dog, cat) but slowly our menagerie is being replaced with children.

4. I know Morse Code.

5. I've calculated that I've eaten over 18,000 bowls of cereal in my life. Yup, I love cereal.

I Love This Moment

Paige says, "I'm still a big fan of the 'quilt' look and had fun punching squares from each of the papers in the Polka Dot Party 6×6 paper pad, trimming them in half into triangles, and then piecing them together in a heart shape for a fun and unique photo mat."
