Agnieszka
Hi! My name is Agnieszka, my nickname is chanya13 and I live in Poland with husband, 6 cats and one big dog. 

I have been scrapbooking for 7 years now and I’m totally crazy about this hobby! My favorite things to make are cards, albums and notebooks but most of all, I love to make multilayer cards. I also like making exploding boxes and scrap book layouts. 

I have my own style and I love to use flowers. I sometimes make my own, either from paper or foam. I add butterflies, different media and lace of all kinds to my projects. I have a weakness for purple and pink and use them quite a lot. Vintage and romantic styles are my favorites. 

In my free time I like gardening, rock climbing, hiking and traveling. I also love photography. If you want to see my work, look here: http://cardmakinghobby.blogspot.com/or 

Hugs, Agnieszka

Hi, my name is Amy. I am a stay at home mother to three amazing children. My daughter is 18 and my two boys are 17 and 13, they keep me full of life and very busy at times. We live in Georgetown, Texas which is right outside of Austin, TX. After growing up in a military family it is nice to stay in one place for awhile. I love to travel and of course craft. I started scrapbooking 16 years ago and have been making cards for 7, I love both but right now card making is my favorite. My style is more CAS than anything but I love trying new techniques.

Hello everyone! My name is Ann Chuang. I'm so delighted to be a part of the Love To Scrap Design Team! I live in Taiwan. I am a junior high school math teacher and a mom of 3 children Hedy, Vivian and Eason. I started crafting about 2012. At that time, I started making very simple cards that would take me hours to make, but the look of pure joy that people give you after receiving a handmade card is worth every second! I always believe that "the handmade has temperature". I love sharing my love of stamping/cardmaking with everyone & I'm really looking forward to sharing my creations with all of you! Thank you Leslie & my other teammates for inviting me to be a part of your awesome team!!

I am a wife of 33 years, mother to four young adults, and grandmother of one. I have loved to create my whole life and was lucky enough to have a mother who supported it. I started scrapbooking in 2000 and never looked back. Scrapbooking introduced me to stamping and paper crafts and so much more. I don't have one set style since I love experimenting with new mediums and techniques. I do love to get my hands messy! There's not much better than inky fingers! When I'm not in my craft room, I love to read and watch tv with my family.

I am a stay at home mom to three beautiful little girls. My wonderful husband and I have been married for almost 16 years and we live in Southern Rhode Island. I started stamping about 13 years ago when I was introduced to Stampin' Up! but I really got into it about 5 years ago when I discovered all the challenges and inspiration abounding on the internet. I've never looked back since. I'm so excited to be joining the Love to Scrap team!

My name is Helen and I live in the north west of Britain on the Wirral peninsula.  I'm a full time Activities Coordinator for a charity which provides care for older people.  I spend my time organising activities, entertainment, trips out etc and can often be found calling bingo, leading chair exercises, singing or playing dominoes!  I also work part time for a local stamping firm teaching regular workshops for them.  In my spare time I'm a card maker and I love my Promarkers and patterned papers.  Looking forward to scrapping with the Love To Scrap design team!

Hello! My name is Irena and I am from the town of Dobrich, Bulgaria. I am happily married to my best friend. I am a mother of two grown-up daughters and one son. I have a granddaughter and she takes me back in time to motherhood in the sweetest way.

I feel free to call myself an artist, because I'm very artistic and I enjoy to practice this art ;)

I still wonder whether to call my art hobby or lifestyle.

I started with cards at the end of 2013. In the fall of 2014 I found mix media and since then it remains my preferred style. Although the cards will always have that special place on my work table. I still trying different techniques and in most cases I learn from other masters.

I create. I’m looking for stories in everything. Sometimes I do found it and sometimes – did not ... but all the time I realy enjoy crafting.

It is a big honor for me to be a part of Love to Scrap Challenge blog DT.

Hugs
Irena

My name is Leslie. My hubby and I have four grown children, two grandsons and three granddaughters, scattered around the US. We live in beautiful Colorado. I began scrapbooking about 45 years ago - so long ago that all the fun papers and embellishments we use today hadn't even been thought of. I'm a crafting junkie and really enjoy creating all things paper - handmade cards, 3-D projects, mini albums, gift bags and paper shoes. I started blogging and entering challenges in 2011, and loved it so much that I started the Love To Scrap Challenge Blog in early 2013. It's been an awesome journey... so awesome and so much fun that she now has three sister blogs - Love To Craft Challenge BlogMix It Up Challenge Blog and Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog! Looking forward to crafting with these amazing designers! :)

I have been married to Jim for 27 years; we have three children, two girls and one boy. We live in a very small community - think 700 people, counting our dog, we jump up to 701. :D I used to be able to say we stay very busy with all kinds of sports, but our last one is finishing high school so come Fall 2019, we will officially be empty-nesters! 

I originally began scrapbooking when I had the privilege of being a stay-at-home mom for two years a long, long time ago. Somewhere along the line, I discovered the immediate gratification of stamping a card and I was hooked; haven't looked back since...and um, haven't touched those scrapbooks either although I do dabble a bit in Project Life and at least keep up somewhat on those memories!

I did return to work after those two years off, and let's be honest, I'm just a better wife, mom, friend, you-name-it when I'm working. I am a full-time executive assistant working for the man known as the Father of Extended Stay (think Residence Inn, Summerfield Suites, Candlewood Suites - he created all those); we stay very busy and I relish my job. But to keep me sane, I enjoy paper crafting, reading, music and exercising. 

As far as my style, I've never been very good at clean & simple; I tend to like lots of layers or go all out with mixed-media creations. I love coloring with Copics and adding depth and shading with pencils - in fact, I love coloring with Copics on watercolor paper. Yes, I realize its meant for watercoloring, but that's something I'm still practicing! You can check out my work at my blog: Whimsical Creations or on Instagram where I share lots of 'in-progress' photos, also Whimsical Creations; 2018 was a rough year, but I'm so looking forward to 2019 and the Love To Scrap Challenge Blog - man, are there some super fun challenges coming your way!

Co-Owner/Facebook Coordinator
Hi, I'm Tina DeMarche, the Domestic Engineer of my home of four boys ages 18, 16, 8, and 2. I'm married to a wonderful, supportive husband (who sometimes gets crafty too). I homeschool my youngest son and enjoy learning with him. I started cross-stitching at age 6 and have loved keeping my hands busy ever since. Cooking is another one of my favorite things I like to do to keep my hands busy (and has a second benefit of feeding the family, which all my boys love). My husband says he married a trophy wife that could also cook, because he knew he would always be hungry.

I took a calligraphy class in 2001 and we would make Christmas cards to swap amongst ourselves. Thus began my love for card making, but I really didn't get into stamping until years later. I guess I have been stamping for 9 years now, but over the last 5 I have started to collect stamps and they have taken over my crafting closet.

I'm really excited to be chosen for this new design team and can't wait for the new challenges it will bring as there are so many talented, crafty women out in the blog world.
