Anna - Owner
I'm Anna White-Sharman and I officially took over running The Studio from Amanda in July 2013 after being on the DT and helping out here for many years previously!
I started crafting and making cards when I become ill years ago and its been a live saver, its helped me though some tough times and I really love creating. I do all sorts of crafts but my main ones at the moment are scrapbooking and mixed media.
I love running The Studio, creating challenges with the help of my great design team to inspire others to get creating!

My family and I live in a small suburb of Kansas City, Kansas, just over an hour and a half north of where I grew up. I am a former, kindergarten teacher turned adoring wife, of 14 years, to BJ and stay-at-home, homeschool mom to Ezekiel (12), Adina (7), and Kaden (2). When I’m not taking care of or playing with my family, you can find me cooking, baking, gardening, camping, sewing, taking pictures, blogging at Soaring, and of course, paper crafting. My love for the latter started, over thirteen years ago, at a Stampin’ Up workshop; but I have been creating with any and every form of crafting media, that I could get my hands on, since I was old enough to hold a crayon. I’ve been honored to have had a number of published works of art, as well as to get to design for some of my most favorite manufacturers and challenge blogs, and am just thrilled to continue to be a part of the talented likes of The Studio Design Team! I hope that I can inspire you all to get creating.

Hi everyone my name is Rachel and I am from beautiful Perth, Australia.
I have been scrapping since 2006. My craft background is in quilting and folk art painting.
I have four great kids aged 9 - 16 years.
I would describe my scrapping style as classic scrapper, I am a lover of clean lines, negative space and embellishment clustering.
I love photography and travelling, with a trip to Italy this year already booked.
I am very excited to be here and share my layouts with you.
Here is the link to my blog:
Hello! :) I am Raechelle (pronounced Rachel) and I live in Conroe, TX along with my husband and youngest daughter. We have a blended family of six children, five girls and one boy. Our other five children are grown and live all over the US, with the exception of our second youngest daughter who is currently stationed in Romania. We are a proud military family! Two of our daughters are active duty Navy, our son is an Army Veteran, and our oldest daughter is a Navy Veteran. We have three sweet granddaughters, although we have only been able to meet one of them. I am a stay-at-home mom for our youngest daughter who has Crohn's disease as well as other medical conditions. Thankfully she is in remission at the time and is able to live a somewhat normal teenage life.
I have been scrapping for about 15 years now and enjoy pushing myself to expand me creativity. I still marvel at how we can all take a sketch, some photos, paper, and embellishments and end up with unique expressions of ourselves. You can see more of my work by visiting my blog :: http://raebellus.
Hi there! I'm Tracy and I'm from NW Indiana. I live a blessed life with a great supportive husband and together we've raised a happy/loving blended family of four.
I started scrapbooking in 2003, by taking a local class out of curiosity, and that's all it took! I have been addicted ever since. In the last few years I have been able to spend more time creating and it's now become more of a lifestyle rather than a hobby.
As for my style, that's really hard to pinpoint since I am all over the place. Sometimes it depends on my picture or my product or even my mood but I do tend to lean towards a more simple, clean look. However, I'm always up for a challenge and for trying new techniques, which I feel keeps me up to date with all the new scrapbook trends and pushes me from my comfort zone.

Hi, I'm Vivian and I'm from Indiana, but now reside in Texas. I started scrapbooking in 1998 when it was nothing more than a few decorative cutting scissors to work with. Since then, I have spent many years developing my own unique style. I love playing with die cuts for my cards and 3-D projects. But for my layouts, I tend to stay with the clean look with lots of negative space. Scrapbooking eventually led to my second love, photography. For both of these creative styles, my favorite subject is my son with his big, blue eyes.
