Terry lives in a small rural community in South Texas with her husband, youngest son, and three fur babies (miniature dachshunds). She has five children all together and four grandchildren.  Terry keeps busy managing a physician group, attending every and any kind sporting event (since her husband is a coach), golfing, traveling, and of course scrapping every chance she gets.

Terry started scrapbooking quite by accident in December 2007. She was purchasing scrapbooking supplies as a Christmas gift for her assistant and decided to buy two of everything.  The scrapbooking bug bit her, however her paper days were short.  After stumbling upon Designer Digitals and classes by Debbie Hodge and Paula Gilarde,  it would be only about 6 months, before she went 100% digital. Terry loves recording memories whether it is of her grandchildren, children, sports, everyday life, or just the beauty of nature.

Ronnie is an English girl living in Texas with two kids, one schnauzer and a husband for company. Her family left England when her daughter was 18 months old with hopes of  being back in time for her to start school. Now Ronnie and her family have been in Texas for 14 years and her daughter is 19!  Ronnie is a “Work-From-Home Mum” with a bit more than a part-time job in association management. Not something she planned to do with her life but something she enjoys and fits in with her family commitments.

Scrapbooking has been Ronnie’s major hobby/stress management tool for over ten years now and she collected a room full of supplies and gadgets before transitioning exclusively to digital scrapbooking in 2010. Ronnie says, “My scrapbooks record my family life ‘warts and all’. My one rule as far as my scrapbooking is concerned is that I’m the Chief Executive Officer in Charge. So I decide how long to spend on a page, I decide which pictures and I decide what to scrapbook. It’s the one thing in my life I have complete control over.”

Devra has been paper scrapping since she received her first scrapbook as a birthday gift in 1998. She loves how the hobby continues to evolve and gives her reason to try new things, and evolve as well.  If Devra had to describe her style, she’d say it’s “adaptable”. She enjoys trying new trends and techniques (some more than others) and seeing how she can make them work for her.  Devra scraps it all, the good, the bad, the funny, and yes, the ugly.  And with her family as her primary subjects, she is never a loss for new material.

Lynn Grieveson

Website | Blog | FacebookInstagram

Lynn was born in the north of England, but now lives in New Zealand after stints in Australia, London and Singapore. Although a digital scrapbook designer for over ten years, she is first and foremost a scrapbooker and has created numerous photobooks for her two daughters and for her parents (who send her all their travel pics and the old family photos). She splits her time between designing kits and templates for her store at The Lilypad and working as a political journalist (on the news website she and her husband own) and as a financial sub-editor. You will, therefore, nearly always find her at her computer working. But if she is not, she is probably researching family history (hoping to top the discovery that her coal mining ancestors were actually descended from the Plantagenet kings), planning the next family travel adventure – or, most likely, in a bubble bath reading.
