Anita Scroggins – Design Team Coordinator
I am happily married to the love of my life, a man who doesn’t get mad when he ends up at work with glitter on his face. We have two beautiful grown daughters, who live right down the road from us and one precious granddaughter. Gardening, cooking, volunteering, and laughing with my friends are how I spend my time when I am not crafting. I am an experienced media spokesperson, educator, project & product designer and more. My scrapbook, home-decor, paper crafts and up-cycled projects have been featured in books and magazines, at events, and trade shows. I blog at The Flamingo Chronicals. You can also find me on Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. My style is diverse and ever evolving, but one thing remains the same, less is less and more is best and white space is my enemy.
My name is Amy Lanford and I live in Irving, Texas. I have been around crafting my whole life. I grew up with a love of crafting and understanding the healing powers of it! I wanted to find a way to make things for my daughter Emilyann and that’s when my love of paper crafting began. When I married my best friend Fred in 2007, he came with our two other kids – Amy and Lee. The magic of crafting gave me a bridge through the world of step parenting. It quickly became something Amy and I enjoyed doing together and it was exploring local crafting shops with her that led me to my favorite store The Crafty Scrapper! This is where the real addiction began and where I transitioned from 12 x 12 layouts into all the other wonderful ways there are to paper craft! I am so excited to be a member of this year’s design team and get to share my art with others! www.ascrappygirl.com
Hi! I’m Casey from Mansfield, TX. I have been crafting since 2008. I decided I needed a hobby since I don’t have kids or a husband and I have a lot of free time outside of work! I love making a mess in my craft room! If you’re not messy, I don’t know if we can be friends! Just kidding! Anyone who loves to create is a friend of mine! Crafting started off as a hobby but it’s slowly evolved into a type of therapy… much like clothes shopping! 🙂 Hope you guys like what you see! If you feel like venturing out you can find me on Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram.

I am very excited to be part of the Crafty Scrapper design team! My style is vintage and feminine. I love to layer textures and combine vintage pieces with new products. I am always hunting for old lace, trims, ephemera, and “junk” that I can add to my projects. I do scrapbooking, card making, holiday crafts, and altered projects. My husband and I love to travel and spoil our cats, nieces, and nephew – all of which are frequent subjects of my projects. We recently moved to Trophy Club, and we are in the continuous process of renovating our home to make it all ours. You can find Erica blogging at Zunky Chic and on Pinterest.
I have been scrapping for the last 17 years… starting with a small card table in my living room to now a room over flowing with supplies and projects waiting to be done. My favorite thing to do is 12×12 layouts… I like simple and can’t seem to complete a layout without inking something on the page. I LOVE sketches and keep them all in a beautiful pink binder that is close by when I am scrapping… it will usually provide any inspiration that may be lacking. Crafting is not only a creative outlet for me but my therapy! Remembering the memories of when my kids were little or just getting my fingers inky on a home decor project just makes me happy. I started working at The Crafty Scrapper in August of 2010. I LOVE it! I also enjoying making domino and bottle cap jewelry. I look forward to creating and sharing with you! Find me on the web at Hand Crafted Dreams and on Facebook.
I have been scrapbooking for 10 years and I love each and every day that I get to scrap. I have been married for 43 years and my husband Eddie is my best supporter. We have four grown children, two daughters and two sons, and each one is married. I also have four grandchildren, two boys and two girls. They are my greatest source of inspiration. I have studied art for ten years and I find that scrapbooking is a way to express one self. I have used many unconventional methods and I hope each one of you enjoy seeing what I have created. I was asked to join the Design Team at The Crafty Scrapper which is such an honor. I look forward to seeing comments and hopefully will have the opportunity to meet you. Please stop by my little space on the web, Gingersnaps and Butterflies, and say “hi” sometime.
Hey y’all! I am a lifetime crafter. As far back as I can remember I have one many different crafts. I found my people when I stepped into The Crafty Scrapper. I love paper and paint! I do small albums, canvases, and mixed media; pretty much anything I can get my hands on is my passion. I am a Graphic Designer, Mom to two fur babies, and live in Duncanville, Texas.
I have been a rubber stamper and paper crafter for 20 years. For 14 years, I owned Imprints, a rubber stamp store in Fort Worth, Texas. I closed my store in June 2009. My hubby, Gary, had retired from General Motors a year before I closed my store. To downsize, we moved out to the country and now live on Cedar Creek Lake. Not too long after moving, I found the Crafty Scrapper to be a perfect spot to meet my friends for crafting, fun and fellowship. In 2010, I figured I made more cards (at least 225 of them) than I had in the fourteen years I owned my store. At every crop, I would bring a bunch of cards I had made and that is how the teaching “gig” happened, as several of the ladies really wanted me to teach and I finally said “yes”! And, I am so glad I did. I have taught every month since! I look forward to sharing my card creations with you. I also have a blog, Live, Love, & Stamp, where I share everything that I make. Happy Stamping!
