Meet our designers!I am a work-at-home mom who lives near Richmond, Virginia with three teenagers (yikes!) and one spoiled pup! I started scrapbooking over 16 years ago and have never looked back. Scrapbooking is much more than a hobby to me - it has enriched my life in so many ways beyond paper and ink. I am passionate about photography, journaling, design and history and I look forward to sharing that passion with you. I started Feeling Scrappy back in April of 2007 and it has been so much fun working with our designers, planning and most of all spending time with everyone in class – I am truly inspired by these amazing women! Outside of scrapbooking and spending time with my family, I love to cook, read and most of all travel.
Hi everyone! I'm Stacey, and I am hopelessly addicted to all things creative! :) I am passionate about creating. I have been at it for so long I can't imagine what life would be like without it. Mom inspired the passion of creativity, she crocheted, did ceramics, and baked, and she was wonderful about including my sisters and I when we were younger. Dad let us create in the garage with his tools and scraps of wood. There wasn't really a right or wrong way - they just let us do what we were inspired to do. So I feel I have always been creatively awake. My very first scrapbook project was in 1992. I made a scrapbook for my boyfriend (now hubby) as a graduation gift. It was a magnetic page album complete with bookmarks with sweet poems and stickers from the Hallmark section at Kmart. Even then with as few supplies as I had access to I was hooked, and have been at it ever since.
I was born and raised in rural Montana, and am very proud of it. I still consider myself a Montana girl. I now live just south of it’s border in Wyoming. I live with my hubby , Steve, our three beautiful children, Macey, Conor and Xander, and our sweet pups Sadie and Gregor. In addition to creating as much as possible just for the fun of it, I also have a creative business, Star Hitched Wagon™, where I create bath and body products from scratch and design one of a kind jewelry pieces. I enjoy running, camping, hiking, fishing, cheering for our local hockey teams in the winter and spending time with my family and the pups!!"
After moving around the country since getting married to my wonderful DH, Adam, in 1998, we settled in central Pennsylvania in early 2010 and we're here to stay! We have a diva-ish 8 year old daughter and a devil-ish 4 year old son, and when I'm not at my full-time job as a health care executive or indulging in my scrapbooking passion, you can usually find me enjoying my kids' activities, reading, baking, and either planning for or recovering from our most recent travels. I've been scrapbooking since 2000 and have been mostly digi since 2009, although I still enjoy getting my hands dirty with "real" mini albums, cards and other paper crafts.
I created my first scrapbook at the tender age of 5, carefully using Elmers glue, tape, pictures, magazines, and a trash bag to create a masterpiece. Almost 35 years later, I am still creating scrapbook art one page at a time. I was a happy and successful Creative Memories Sr. Consultant for 8 years before the pull of all things blingy, bumpy, lumpy, textured and more became too great. I am a hybrid scrapper using both traditional and digital techniques. I use many mediums in my scrapbooking and while still loving CM, I use many other brands as well. Digitally I have used SBC for several years and most recently added PSE10 to my skill set. I enjoy learning new techniques and trying new new things while also holding on to the basic tradition of the art we know as scrapbooking. I have been married for 12 years and have two awesome daughters and a dog named Benji. When not scrapbooking I am a stay at home mom, who rarely stays at home! I love to read, write, draw, paint, and well basically try my hand at all things creative. I am very excited for this opportunity and look forward to joining the Feeling Scrappy team of amazing designers.
