Our Talented Teachers

Kristine Davidson

Kristine lives on the East Coast in New Brunswick, Canada. She’s been married for 14 years and has 2 cats named Archie and Willie who keep her busy removing cat hair from her glue dots! She works full time as a sales and service agent for an airline company and loves to spend her spare time being creative. She also loves anything with chocolate, a good cup of coffee, as well as city skylines, and sunsets.

Kristine has been an avid scrapbooker for over 8 years and completely addicted to pop dots, diecuts and of course pattern paper. She is the founder of a scrapbook sketch site called Creative Scrappers, and currently a design team member for Jillibean Soup and Simple Stories. She is thrilled to be our guest designer this month and looking forward to providing you with some inspiration to create!

Paige Evans

Hi everyone! My name is Paige Evans and I've been scrapping for 13 years, ever since I was 16 years old and got my very first job at a scrapbooking store in Redmond, WA called Yesterdays. They didn't even have an application, just took my name and phone number. I wonder what my life would be like now had I not walked into that store that fateful day because so much of my life has revolved around scrapbooking since then! I work from home as a mom by day, and by night I manage the American Crafts Blog and Design Team, am on the Studio Calico Contributing Team, the Ali Edwards Digital Creative Team, and a blog contributor for Elle's Studio. I also love teaching scrapbooking workshops all around Europe. Basically, I LOVE scrapbooking! I've been married to Chris for 7.5 years and we have a son named Fox (4) and a daughter named Jane (2 1/2). We live on an Army base in Grafenwöhr, Germany - my husband is a dentist in the Army and we're loving our adventures here and travel as much and as often as we can!

Lynn Ghahary

My name is Lynn Ghahary and I live in New Jersey with my husband and high school sweetheart Salar and our two wild and crazy boys, Darian and Brandon. I was first introduced to the wonderful world of scrapbooking way back in 2000. Not only do I love to scrapbook but I love to create paper crafts of all kinds including cards, mini albums, and altered projects.

I am lucky enough to have had my work published in several magazines including Creating Keepsakes, CARDS, Paper Crafts, Scrapbooks ETC, Scrapbook Trends, and Scrapbook & Cards Today. I am currently a design team member and the Special Projects Coordinator for Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine, as well as part of the design team for PageMaps and PageMaps U, and a freelance designer for Basic Grey.

Kelly Goree

When it comes to design and décor, Kelly Goree is one eclectic woman. She constantly strives to incorporate different elements she loves, different styles of design, and different colors or palettes into her home to keep things interesting and exciting (much to her husband’s dismay). Her love of color, quirky elements and bold patterns carries over to her self-proclaimed “classic with a twist” scrapbooking style.

Kelly started scrapbooking in early 2000 just after her oldest son was born (She is now the busy mom to three boys!). In 2006 she had the honor of being a Memory Makers Master and since then has worked with many leaders of the scrapbooking industry including BasicGrey and Queen & Company. She currently enjoys being on the design team for Scrapbook & Cards Today Magazine and PageMaps as well as having projects featured regularly in various scrapbooking and paper arts publications.

Marla Kress

Hi there, I'm Marla. Chief meal cooker, laundry folder, dish washer, boo boo kisser, book reader, pretend player, bear hugger and laugh getter to one crazy husband and three adorable kiddos.  I also moonlight as a cab..err... minivan driver and play an internet-trained physician known as Dr.Google in my spare time.

When I'm not on duty I like to spend time in my studio creating pages and albums that my family can enjoy.  I also love photography and dream of being a fabulous seamstress. But a gal needs to sleep. 

I aim for superwoman but will settle for being a really cool mom and wife. 


Cindy Liebel

Hi there, my name is Cindy, I am a stay at home mom living in Virginia with my family, Tim, Tyler, Corinne and our retired greyhound, Nala. I have been enjoying this creative "scrapbooking" life for over ten years. The best part is capturing the everyday awesomeness of my family. You can visit my blog, cindyliebel.blogspot.com for a dose of our daily happenings.

My design style is random that is simple with geometric and linear details. I love to embellish my designs with pops of color, texture and attention to detail. I have designed for several scrapbook companies in the industry and worked as a scrapbook instructor for over eight years.

My other creative outlet consists of crocheting, photography, metalsmithing and home improvements. Aside from creating, I am a total homebody. But I also enjoy the being outdoors and staying actively fit. I have a major crush for homemade pesto, dark chocolate, Cabernet Sauvignon and SiriusXM Radio.

Nicole Nowosad

My name is Nicole Nowosad and I proudly live in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada with my husband and three kids that keep us very busy. When I am not running to school parent council meetings, dropping my daughter off at dance or cheering at my boys soccer and baseball games, I am holed up in my craft area working on a project. Scrapbooking must be in my DNA, as my father scrapbooked my parents honeymoon many years ago, and so it was meant to be for me! I have always been interested in crafting all kinds, but when I was introduced to scrapbooking over 15 years ago, I was instantly hooked and haven’t looked back since.

I am lucky enough to have had my work published in several magazines including Scrapbook & Cards Today, CARDS, and Scrapbook Trends. I am currently a design team member for Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine, Jillibean Soup, Lily Bee Design, Bella Blvd, Hampton Art and Scraptastic Kit Club.  I am so honoured to be an educator for Page Maps U!

Christa Paustenbaugh

I am a mom of 2 girls that keep me on my toes and wife to a Marine Corps husband that literally keeps my toes moving around the US and now around the world!  We all currently live in Okinawa, Japan a small island south of mainland Japan.  I fill my days here with beach time, photography field trips, running with my girlfriends and of course scrapbooking those adventures.  I have also been bitten by the travel bug pretty hard since being here and constantly have a trip I'm in the process of planning and scheming!

I have been scrapbooking for some time now, but got serious about after the birth of my youngest daughter in 2005.  I have been published in Scrapbook and Cards Today, Scrapbook Trends, Creating Keepsakes, and the former Scrapbooks, Etc.  I am thrilled to currently work as a designer for Scrapbook and Cards Today.  I also design for Write.Click.Scrapbook.

Jaclyn Rench

I'm Jaclyn Rench, a stay-at-home mommy to three awesome kids and wife of 12 years to a super supportive husband.  By day I spend my hours kissing boo-boos, refereeing squabbles, planning playdates, packing lunches, shuffling children from here to there, and trying to figure out what in the heck to fix for dinner that is healthy AND something my kids will eat!  Once my kids are tucked into bed, however, you can find me at my crafting desk into the wee hours of the night and early morning, documenting the stories and memories that come out of those non-stop busy days.  I hope someday my scrapbooks will give my children a good reminder of the memories of their childhood and a sense of just how much they are loved.

While scrapbooking has proved to be a rewarding hobby for me, I'm also proud to have designed for such notable and inspiring companies as Pebbles and Bella Blvd.  And I don't think the thrill of seeing my pages published in crafting magazines like Scrapbook & Cards Today, Scrapbooks Etc, Cards, Create and Scrapbook Trends, will ever officially wear off.
