Short bio: Hi, my name is YuNing Huang, aka Valerie. I live in Silicon Valley with my husband and our dog Shiao Meo Tan (Little Charcoal). I love to travel and photography. I am very honored and thrilled to be asked to guest design for my most favorite company!

How did you get started scrapbooking? I was introduced to scrapbooking back in 2005. I was still new to this country, so I figured it was a way for me to document my life and express my emotions. I've been hooked ever since. I am blessed and grateful to know such a hubby. For me, scrapbooking is therapeutic.

What is your favorite American Crafts product? EVERYTHING. Seriously I've bought pretty much every collection in the last few years. But my favorite and must haves are patterned papers, remarks, and all the bits. They are my essentials since I am very embellishment heavy.
