Meet Our Current Design Team

Lisa: Owner & Sketch Artist
Lisa started scrapbooking in 1997 shortly after the birth of her son. She joined her first online group in 2007 and after receiving inspiration and encouragement from her online scrapping friends she started her own blog: My Creative Endeavors. Lisa loves using sketches as a starting point for almost all her layouts. When she isn't putting pictures to paper she is sketching out plans for upcoming layouts. She began creating her own sketches in 2010 hoping to inspire other busy moms who have limited scrapping time and need to multitask while scrapbooking!  In 2012 seeing a need for card sketches to jump start her creativity Lisa added card sketches to the Sketch N Scrap line up.  Soon thereafter she began a card ministry at a local church.  Lisa loves seeing how her sketches inspire others and receives a great amount of satisfaction seeing her basic sketch turned into a work of art!

Heather: Senior Designer & Sketch Artist

My name is Heather Hall. I live in Nebraska with my husband Jeremy and 3 children, Rylan, Brett & Briliegh. I've been arting in some form my whole life. I started drawing in school and moved on to painting, stained glass and everything else that was available. In college I focused more on computers graduating with a Bachelors Degree in Visual Communications & Design. In 2002 I started working at a gift shop and the world of crafting opened up to me. I bought a saw and started with wood crafts, later I added a sewing machine to my arsenal and designed crafts for every season. I still work in both mediums, adding things to my website, The Old Salt Box, as I make them. In 2009 I gave birth to my triplets and the world of scrapbooking opened it's doors to me. I enjoy working in the paper arts most these days. With 3 children there is always something to scrap about!

Lori: Senior Design Team Member
Hello! My name is Lori and I live in a small SW Missouri town with my husband, Scott, and our 2 sons, Matthew and Shane. We also have a daughter, Abby, who is married to her high school sweetheart and they have a one year old little girl named Ada that I get the pleasure of babysitting through the week.  I started scrapbooking about 17 years ago and card making soon after that. Nothing relaxes me more than spending time in my scrap room. I love looking back on all that has happened and preserving those memories. I would call my scrappy style clean and simple, but lately I have been having fun adding a few more layers to my projects.  You can find me at My Happy Life any day of the week. I would love for you to stop by!

Amy: Design Team Member
My name is Amy from DeKalb IL, my husband Kenny and I are the modern day Brady Bunch he had 2 sons and 1 daughter and I have 3 daughters so now we have 6 kids among us. Only my youngest lives with us all the rest of them are adults. Our two oldest children both have families of their own so we also have 5 grandchildren. Lots of great memories to scrapbook and lots of reasons to send out cards on a regular basis.
I have been artsy my whole life but in 1995 I discovered scrapbooking and soon after stamping. This year I also ventured into Pocket Scrapbooking, I have tried it several times in the past and didn't get very far but so far so good this time. It has been nice to scrapbook the every day in pockets and then add in some pages for my really special moments on a 12 x 12 or a mini album. It is fun to blend stamping, and scrapbooking together and I enjoy making ABC items (anything but a card),home decor items, and planners. Basically I just love papercrafts!!

Cathy:  Social Media Team Member
My name is Cathy Sanders and I hail from sunny South Africa. I have been scrapping since 2003... was introduced to this hobby by my BFF and have not looked back. I eat, sleep and create scrapbook layouts. I love to scrap with a "mix and match" style... ie anything goes so long as the photos are highlighted and the story is told. I am married to Keith and mother to Aaron. My scrapping is my photo album and thus I scrap the everyday memories that we make. I dabble in a few other hobbies too, namely quilling,  card making, sewing and reading.

Chris: Design Team Member
 My name is Christine (Chris) and I am recently retired. I have been married to my wonderful husband since June 1988 and between us we have a blended family of four children and five grandchildren.  I have been scrapping for almost 17 years and I have the stash to prove it!  My scrappy style has changed quite a bit over the years - I started with 8 1/2" x 11" single pages, moved to 12" x 12" double pages and now I mostly scrap 12" x 12" single pages.  I am super excited to be a new member of the Sketch N Scrap Design Team.  I love sketches and look forward to sharing my layouts and cards with everyone.  You can find me at  My Blog or on Instagram @chriscassidy84. 

Diana: Design Team Member
My name is Diana Soling and I live in Yorkville, IL.  I am a mother of three, 2 boys and 1 girl and have been married for 21 years.  I started scrapbooking a few months after my oldest son was born and never looked back.  I started making cards when my youngest son was born.  I wanted to make his birth announcements.  I love reading in my spare time and hanging out with my kids.  We love going to the zoo (although only my 14 year old will go anymore) and watching movies.  We have three fur babies, two dogs and one hamster.  

Meena: Social Media Design Team Member
Hi, I'm Meena from India. I'm a differently able person (bedridden from past 11years). I have started doing Art and Craft from childhood as a hobby. I got interested in this by seeing my aunties. When I was diagnosed with Spinal muscular atrophy type 2 when I was 12 years old my life stopped there because this disease has no cure. I was broken and all my dreams were also broken. At that time I didn't know what to do and how to come out of that. At that time my mom pushed me completely into the craft world. I did one year course in art and craft. I wanted to learn more in craft but no one was ready to teach me because I was differently able person, but I never gave up. I learnt everything from YouTube and from books.   I took my hobby as my professional from year 1999. I make fun fold cards, watercolouring, mixed media, DIY, altered work, scrapbook layouts, hand embroidery, soft toys, decoupage,  etc. I started blogging in February 2016. I don't have any particular style. I love working on every style and try new techniques and things. To me crafting is everything because through this I see outer world and can keep in touch with them. It is the only one thing which makes me to forget my disease and worries.  To see more of Meena's work please visit her blog

Sharon:  Team Member
Hello, my name is Sharon Fontenot &I live on the north side of Houston, Texas. I have 3 children and 3 grandchildren (which you will soon be tired of seeing in my layouts). My dog, Riley, is in charge of the household.  My blog is called Higgledy-Piggledy Crafts. Each time I start a project the paper starts flying. Hence, the name Higgledy-Piggledy, which means in confusion or disorder. My craft room gets a little trashed during projects, but I straighten, organize, and clean, then start all over again. When I am not crafting, I enjoy riding my bike and spending time in the pool. 

Stacy:  Design Team Member
Hello!  My name is Stacy and I live in Southwest Florida with my husband, our teenage son, and our two furbaby rescue dogs.  I work full-time as a Billing Manager for an Orthopedic Surgery group.  I’m originally from a tiny town in central Missouri where I grew up on a farm, the youngest of 5 children.  I’ve always enjoyed different types of crafting since I was a child and I began scrapping 17 years ago, after the birth of my son.  My style has definitely changed over the years...I’m not sure how I’d define it today!  Sketches are my go-to for a jump start of creativity, and I love to add “clusters” and layering on my pages.  I also enjoy using stencils, texture pastes, and sometimes my sewing machine on my projects.  I’m almost exclusively a one-page 12” x 12” scrapper and enjoy making cards, also.  I’m so excited to join the Sketch N Scrap Design Team! You can find me at my blog,  #InMyLife

Surama:   Design Team Member
My name is Surama and I live in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, with my mom, my sister and two cute cats. I'm single, no children.  I work in publicity at my own company: an agency of events and promotional marketing.  I've been scrapping since 2006 and never stopped. I love colorful papers, inks, stamps and now I'm really enjoying my Silhouette machine. For me, scrapbooking is fun, it is my pleasure and my joy. It is my therapy for sad days. Good memories and special moments of my life with my family and friends are the main theme of my layouts.  In addition to scrapbooking, I love listening to music, making cookies and candies, watching movies and going out with friends. I'm so happy to be here again!

Tina: Design Team Member
Hi I'm Tina of Tina's Scrap Corner. I'm married to a great guy for 23 years, we have a furry older child in the house Buddy and in dog years he's older than us :) Buddy is an Australian cattle-dog (Blue Heeler). We also have 17 grandkids (combined families :) and 5 Great-Grandkids so lots to scrap. I work the overnight shift in a food factory as a production worker. I started scrapbooking in 2007 when a friend invited me to a crop and I was hooked :) I love to scrap and make cards with sketches, it's a way for me to get the look I want in the fastest way possible, like a roadmap gets you from point A to point B.

Tina: Social Media Design Team Member
Hello, my name is Tina. I live in Linglestown, Pennsylvania. I work part-time at the elementary school my girls attended. When not working I take care of my handicapped mom who lives with us. My husband and I have been married for 26 years. We have a daughter away at college and another in Vocational School. We have a dog and a cat. You can always find red licorice or Mike and Ike’s in my scrappy room. I love chocolate, peanut butter and fruit of any kind! I sew, refinish and reupholster furniture, dabble in watercolors and have tried just about every craft at least once. In the early 90’s I started scrapbooking and stamping. I was serious about scrapbooking, but my idea of scrapping was way different than it is now! I was in a box and thought it had to be a certain way. I took a 5 year break due to family issues and the birth of our second daughter! Then one day while on Facebook I came across some scrapbooking groups!!!!! Oh my goodness, the beautiful pages I was seeing! That opened my eyes to a whole new way to scrap. It freed me up and motivated me to scrap again! And I find inspiration EVERYWHERE!!!!

Hi! My name is Tina! I'm originally from Ky, but now live in Tennessee with my other half, our teen aged son, and a very lazy (but so stinkin' cute!) Bagel Dog. She's part beagle and part basset hound. Nope, she's not spoiled at all!! 😉 I'm a boy mom (5 boys ages 26, 24, 22, 18 and 14) and they are most often my scrap victims. Uhmm.....I mean inspiration!!! I love creating boy pages and working with bold, fun colors and patterns. And if you have ever seen my creations you know I am all about "Pile on the stuff!" Clean and simple is not my forte! I struggle with card making but I'm getting more comfortable with it. I'm so happy to be a member of this awesome team and I am really looking forward to seeing everyone's creations!
