Our Design Team

Welcome to the very Fabulous Design Team for the Counterfeit Kit Challenge...

The Master Forgers!

Hi! I’m Brandi, a full time mama to two little boys! I squeeze in as much time in my scrappy space as I can, they love playing with paper and stickers too, so we have lots of craft time! I’ve been scrapbooking since I was very young, late elementary school to be exact, and I just love having a creative outlet to store my photos and memories! You can find all my work on Instagram @scrappy.boymama 


I started scrapping about 22 years ago (almost 23 I guess now) when my daughter was small.  I fell in love with the creative process and while I document our lives, I do not scrap chronologically.  I enjoy working from inspiration - either a kit or a photo that strikes my fancy.  It's also fun because then I get to relive memories in no particular order.  

My most common subject is my daughter, but I toss in a few of my cat and hubby.  I live in Texas - born and bred, with no intention of ever leaving.  However, I do love to travel and we typically travel at Christmas every year.  I am not currently on any other design teams, although I do participate in 30 Days of Sketches with Christy's beautiful life and had a sketch featured this last round.  I work a full-time job and own a nutrition club, so my normal scrappy time is 4 am during the week.  If I'm lucky and there are no house chores, I "get" to scrapbook sometimes on the weekends.  :-)

Hi, my name is Jojo Kelly and I been scrapbooking since I was a young girl before I even knew the name. I have been officially scrapbooking for over 30 years ago. I have two grown sons and 5 grandchildren. I love scrapbooking my famiy. When I am not scrapbooking, I enjoy road trips.

 I am Jody Compton. I have been paper crafting for over 20 years.  I have 2 boys, one is 13 and the other is 9.  My husband of almost 23 years definitely supports my crafting habit. I am passionate about documenting our trips and everyday moments. My heart belongs to 12 x 12 layouts but I am enjoying the 6x8 albums and I love creating mini albums.  I like to use mixed media and cut files but sometimes a good scraplift or sketch is a great starting point. I am so excited to be here.

Hi, I'm Julene from Sydney Australia. 

I've been scrapping for 18 years and prefer traditional paper scrapbooking to other forms, although I've tried everything. I also make cards which I sell (cheaply) to raise money for charity.

I'm a retired teacher librarian with 1 daughter who lives 3 hours away.

I'm a crafty experimenter who likes to dabble in many things, but paper and particularly scrapbooking, remain my favorite. I've been scrapbooking since 1999. I also experiment with digital designs and I'm learning to design cut files (and offer them for free over on my blog!) 

I live in Washington State in the US and I'm soon to be "retiring" from being a stay-at-home homeschooling parent. Crafting will fill much of that void!

I'm very active on YouTube, update my blog mostly to mirror my YouTube work and add photos to Instagram when there it time!

I am mom to four bio kids, (two that still live at home) one adopted son, and two adult stepsons.  Two of those kids are married, so I'm a mother-in-law - and I’m Mema to my two granddaughters.  I was just remarried in November of 2022, to the man I prayed to God for for over 20 years. 

I live in Idaho, and work full time outside the home.  I love crafting of many kinds - quilting, painting, canvas art, but scrapbooking is what I love the most. I dabble in digital, but prefer the tactile art of physical scrapbooking.


I started scrapbooking in 2002.  I’ve become known within my circle of friends as "the one who brings the challenges" for the group.  I love challenges! I like both simple and clean, as well as detailed and intricate.  I eventually created a board game of challenges for scrapbookers, called Scrapbook Joey, which I am hoping to get marketed in the next year or so.

Hi!  I am Tara, also known as The Paper Snob over on YouTube and kryptonite_72 on Instagram.  I have been scrapbooking since early 2000 and fell in love with this hobby.  I have always loved photos and the stories behind them.  My sister introduced me to scrapbooking and after an initial "no thanks", I decided to give it a try and LOVE keeping my families stories alive this way!

Hello!  My name is Vikki Taguinod and I live in Nevada.  Scrapbooking is my passion and since I'm retired, I can be found most days in my scrap area either scrapbooking, making a card or occasionally a mini album.  I have been scrapbooking for 30+ years.  I started in high school with magnetic photo albums.  I currently use 3 ring binders and love that system.  My albums are in chronological order, but I don't scrap that way.  When not scrapbooking you can find me reading, crocheting, writing or enjoying a coffee or chai.

A lot of my scrapbook layouts start as paper kits, unless I'm working with a specific collection.  Most of the time I pull from my scraps to add to a paper kit.  I will then choose photos, alphas and ephemera to go with the kit.  I find this way of scrapbooking to be most effective for me.
