MEET THE DESIGN TEAM

Alicia Redshaw
Designer/Sketch Designer

Hi! My name is Alicia Redshaw and I live in Gladstone, Queensland (Australia). I am married to the most amazing man (Quentin), and we recently celebrated 21 years of love, happiness and being together. We share three beautiful and talented children, who are our reason for living the life we live. I have been scrapbooking for over twelve years and teaching scrapbooking and card making for nearly as long. For the last three to four years I have also been teaching Copic coloring and Mixed Media Art Classes too! I create a range of projects and styles from simple cards to grungy scrapbook layouts to mixed media art canvas' and almost everything in-between. I am thankful everyday for the blessings of my family and my creativity.


Bev Code
Sketch Designer

I was new to online scrapping since Apr 2009. There are so many sites. My name is Bev Code and I have been scrapping about 5 years. I am a wife, mother and gramma that loves being retired and now have time to scrap to my heart's content. I love scrapbooking along with fun things it entails with online friends, forums and FB. The learning process has been interesting and creative also. Other crafts I love also are needlepoint, sewing, knitting, crochet and taking lots of photos. Family and friends are the subjects of my scrapping along with nature, ancestry and vacation sites. I live in Conestogo, Ontario and spend some time in Florida where I take my scrapping with me for the extended time. I am super excited to join this fabulous group and share my sketches. Can't wait to get to know everyone better.


Cara Goedeking
Designer

My name is Cara Goedeking. I live in Boise, Idaho, USA with my sweet little family--husband of 14 years, Peter, and my 10 year old daughter, Ellie. Six years ago we moved here to Boise to help plant a church and God has done amazing things. We are a church body dedicated to outreach, and our group is currently serving the homeless community of downtown Boise...a challenging but rewarding experience. My love of paper crafting started over 17 years ago with stamping and card making (still one of my favorite things to do!). I started scrapbooking in 2005 when Ellie was born and love being able to be creative while documenting our family's special moments. I have been a member of this design team for the past four years, and I love that I get the privilege of being creative and sharing God's love through this blog.

Debbie Reed
Designer

"Hi...I'm Debbie Reed. I live in the USA, state of Minnesota. I've been married for 28 years and we have two adult children ages 26 and 22. I have been a born again believer in Christ my Lord and Savior for about 30 some years now. I love to sew and I have always loved doing crafts...I have all of my life, from first learning how to knit as a young girl, to my mom teaching me how to crochet. From there it just bloomed :-) I really like trying new, different craft projects. My interest in card making really took off a few years ago. I really enjoy making cards for people, it is such a joy. I love to share my faith in the cards that I make, scrapbook layouts, and other media...I'm always learning new things. I am very excited to be a part of this wonderful Christian blog, and look forward to making many new friends here."

Helen Gullett
Designer

I am married to an amazing, loving husband and we are blessed with 2 active and sweet daughters. Recently we live in Ohio since 2008. We are so excited with this opportunity God has for us. As family, we love to hang out, going camping, and hiking. I also like music, books, blogging, coffee, dark chocolate, ice cream and ethic food. One of my favorite moments is craft time with my daughters and friends.

My all time verse is from Philippians 2:13 "For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him." And I am thankful for God has given me this desire to create with a mission, that is to please Him, declare His name and glory through my handworks.

I started scrapbooking in 2008 with a scrap-journal for our wedding and short mission trip stories. Then after our first daughter was born, I started her first year scrapbook album in 12x12 layouts. Then in later in 2010, I discovered digital scrapbooking which I also love! I fell in love with making cards in 2011 when I made invitations for our daughter's 2nd birthday party. And starting early 2016, I love making mixed media projects.

My church friends and I love getting together for craft night out - it's kinda like our ladies night out. We get together to share new crafty ideas and making them together, this when we teach each other and having fun!
I am sharing my journey and projects at my blog

Linda Harvey
Designer

My name is Linda Harvey.  I live in beautiful northeast Alabama--nestled in the mountains on the Tennessee River.  My husband is a pastor and I am very active in my church ministries.  We have four children and fifteen grandchildren (that means lots of pictures to scrap!) I have been scrapping for eighteen years.  I enjoy it as a creative outlet and a way to preserve history for my family.  I currently teach a "once a month" card class...it is a joy to share with others!

Paula Jennings
Designer/New Owner

I'm Paula Jennings, born again believer for over 30 years. I have two growing/nearly grown sons, Robert age 23 and Thomas 17. I lived nearly all my life in New Jersey except for a brief time in the Poconos a few decades ago. I moved 4 years ago to Delaware and I love it here. I have always been artsy/craftsy doing many things - crocheting, needlepoint, cross stitch, quilting etc until I discovered scrapbooking 18 years ago. At that point I basically put everything else to the sidelines. I think it was about 8 years ago I started making cards and almost 4 years ago doing art journaling and mixed media.  I just love creating all things paper. I am a messy crafter and nearly always have paint or ink stains on my hands. I just recently added a non-paper craft to my repertoire - loom knitting. Last Christmas everyone was blessed with hats and scarfs!  I have been a part of SEM for quite awhile first as a player and then as a DT. I love being able to combine my love for the Lord with the artistic gifts He has blessed me with. I work part time at a ministry that feeds the hungry and homeless that is located in my church and I would like to start a ministry using art to help abused women and children in the healing process. I am very honored to have the founder, Nicole Griggs Brenna offer me ownership of this wonderful blog.
