Meet Christine

I’m Christine “Beanie” Szekeres. I’m a bit of a gypsy, having lived all over the US. I’ve lived in Missouri, Oklahoma, Georgia, Florida, Connecticut, New York, California, and Washington. I have lived in metro Seattle since 2001. I’m a cat person though I love dogs but they are like kids … I’ve never wanted one of my own but I love to spoil nieces and nephews (including the furry sort). I’m a great auntie!

My favorite color is green. I am the marketing director for a youth summer camp in Bellevue, WA (about 12 miles from downtown Seattle). Beanie is my camp name. I first picked up a rubber stamp back in 1997 while I was living in Orlando. It was at a place called Stamp Cabana and the first thing I ever made: Halloween cards. Today I lean more toward mixed media though I still make cards for friends. I have a washi tape addiction. One of my friends calls my studio “the scrapbook store”. Here is Christine’s blog!

Meet Kathleen

I’m Kathleen White and I am a domestic goddess with two overly energetic Boston terrier babies and a hubby of oh soooo many years.  My three wonderful children have long since flown the nest.  My love for scrapbooking began way back in 2002 when I created an album for my daughter’s senior year of high school.  I would say my style is ever changing but if asked I guess it is more shabby chic. Here is Kathleen’s blog!

Meet Kim

My name is Kimberly Murray but you can call me Kimmy. I am a mother of two and my children are my stars to my moon. I am a full time multi-media artist and also a Commercial Photographer/Graphic Designer. My passions is working with paper and I truly adore shabby chic, retro and vintage. I am excited to be working with an amazing company and a wonderful group of talented ladies. Here is Kim’s blog!

Meet Lysa

Hello, I am Lysa (like Melissa without the “ma”).

I currently reside in Washington State, USA. I have lived in the beautiful Pacific Northwest my whole life and I cannot imagine living anywhere else. I have been crafting pretty much my whole life, starting at the age of 5 with my grandmother. I found a love for paper crafting about 12 years ago when I made my very first scrapbook after a trip to Disney Land.

These days I dabble in all things paper such as card making, scrapbooking, and making ATCs. I love to make mini albums, alter items, and I have recently found a LOVE for mixed media crafts. Paper crafting is not just a hobby but more of an outlet for me to express who I am or how I am feeling. I love being able to help my fellow crafty friends express themselves and help make their ideas become a reality. This is why I am excited to join this wonderful team. Here is  Lysa’s blog!
