ScrapBook Blessings Club Design Team 
Hi Friends, Sandy here! I am married and a working (full-time) mom of three, living here is "sunny" Ohio.  I started scrapbooking 10 years ago and card making 3 years ago.  It is my stress reliever after I get the kiddos to bed. I love the sense of accomplishment when I look at the finished product and making gifts for others. 

I am owner/administrator here at SBC which started as my personal blog but has since evolved into something bigger and better. I just started using digital stamps and rubber stamps, but my Cricut is my first love. I can't scrap without my die cutting machines, Gypsy, Cuttlebug, and I am a paper addict/ makings of a scrapbook hoarder.  I scrapbook almost daily and love, love, love learning new techniques and tutorials. That's about it. I am a simple crafter that likes to have fun with my family, friends and scrapbook bloggies.
My tip for you: Don't be intimidated by someone else work. We were all beginners at one point. So create what you want, not what you think everyone wants to see!
I have a personal blog at A Working Mom's Joy and started making my own You Tube videos at

 Hello!  My name is Cindy Messer.  I'm blessed to have a wonderful husband and to be a stay at home mom to two beautiful kids.  I've been crafting in one form or another for as long as I can remember.  Cards, mini albums, and home d├ęcor projects are my favorites.  I love to learn new things and try different techniques.  I also love to cook and bake.  And I'm very excited to be a part of the Scrapbook Blessings Club DT!!

A little tip I picked up:  don't throw away those left overs from your pop dots.  Cut them down and use them on bigger things you want to pop up/add dimension to :-) 

Hello I am an accountant by trade and nature, and a scrapbooker by heart. I am married to my college sweetheart and a proud mom of a tuxie: Sylvester (you can often see him on my video tutorials).
I enjoy using products to their fullest, often combining them or modifying them to get the most bang for the buck. 
My favorite crafty tip is... do a rough sketch before you start. It helps visualize and have a starting point when creating.

My name is Marilyn Leonard.  I live in Oklahoma where the wind comes sweeping down the plains. My husband and I have three grown children - a daughter and two boys.   Two are married and one will be married soon.  We also have three grandchildren.   During the day I work as a geology technician for an Oil & Gas producer. In the evenings and on weekends, I get my craft on and enjoy making cards and playing with my Cricut. 
My tip is:  add layers.  I think almost everything looks better layered.  It will kick your card up a notch taking it from ho-hum to wow.
Hi, I am Carolyn Smith, originally from Indiana, but now live in Alabama.  Retired widow and mother to one son, in the U.S. Army and presently living in Korea; and step-mama to a step-daughter and step-son, both residing in Indiana.  I started with scrapping a book for my granddaughter, and from there I have scrapbooks in progress for each grand kids and great-grand kids.  Became addicted to rubber stamping in 2005 after attending a party, and use digital stamps now in my crafting.  I also enjoy crocheting, quilting and reading good books.  As I told my daughter-in-law, scrapping is a work of Love for the person who will be receiving the album.
My tip for you:  when crafting, and feeling frustrated with what you're doing, or sense a certain tenseness take a short break.  Do something else for a short while, than come back to your project.  It works for me.

Hello there, my name is Cristina Ojeda. I live in Brentwood Ca. I am a mother of two amazing and funny kids and married to my high school sweetheart who has always been a huge supporter in my crafting world. I started scrapbooking when I was 15 years old and I continue to challenge myself with new techniques. I enjoy making layouts, mini albums, altered items, and cards. Crafting is truly a passion for me and I am very happy to be able to share with you my new adventure with Scrapbook Blessings.
My tip for you: Save those left over scraps. They are great when you need to make a quick project or like me I use them in my Cricut when I need to make small cuts.
My Blog:

Hi There! My name is Teresa Russell. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for a little over 38 years now. I consider that to be my greatest accomplishment in life. Together we have 3 grown children who have given us an amazing 7 grandchildren. These little people are the very existence of my life. I started scrapbooking when the oldest grandchild was born 16 years ago. I recently retired from a 17 year teaching career which has given me lots more time to craft and scrapbook. Currently, I also serve on the Design Team over at Cuttin' and Stampin'. I love all kinds of crafting and being on design teams helps me stretch my skills and knowledge of crafting techniques.
My favorite Crafty Tip: I recently started scrapbooking with "paper collections" instead of pulling matching papers together from my stash. So, my tip would be to keep all your scraps and embellishments of one collection together until you are absolutely sure you are finished using the paper and embellishments together.
My Blog: Fresh and Renewed

Hi, I'm Lynne from Pittsburgh, PA and proud grandma of 2 beautiful grandchildren!!! I've been a crafter it seems forever from when I was a little girl learning how to knit and crochet with my grandmother and my aunt; sitting under a quilting loom threading needles for Gram and the ladies at church; learning to sew, quilt, doll sculpting, counted cross stitch and now onto paper piecing with cards and lay-outs!!!! I guess you could say I'm a well-rounded gal in more ways than one!!!
My tip would be to let the project speak to you with the colors and papers and let the creative juices flow from there.

Hi, I'm Jennyfer from Ontario, Canada I am a SAHM of two little ones: a girl and a boy. I started scrapbooking about 6 years ago but then stopped since I did not find the inspiration and time. A few years later, I went to one of the craft shows and from there, I got hooked with stamping.  It's only been around 2 years since I became a card maker and my style has changed a lot.  Up until now, I love cute images, layering a lot and of course, coloring with my prismas colored pencils!!! I am so happy to be part of the SBC team and look forward to the journey of sharing tips, techniques and tutorials with everyone. On that note, my favorite crafty tip is to always have your pencils sharpened well before you start coloring else you won't have a well colored finished result. You can find me on my blog, Jennyfer Creates.

Our DT call ended Sept 30th, so I want to give a big thank you to the design team. They have done a lot of work in just one week getting everything ready for our launch party.  I am floored by all the great talent! 

Another thank you goes to Pinque Peacock.

My Favorite Craft Tools and Giveaway!!!

Hi everyone, Today's video is a fun one for me. Since getting back into crafting I have noticed that I am pulling certain items over and over again and thought it would be fun to share with you.

Building Block Graduation Card

Hello, everyone! Melissa here on to share a "building block" style card with you. I made this one graduation themed, since there are a ton of graduations going on right now. Hope you enjoy this card, and are inspired to try it out yourself. Here is the tutorial I followed from Split Coast Stampers. To make it easier, I will give you all the measurements, here. It looks harder than it is, I promise. Start with a piece of cardstock in your desired color that is 5.5 x 10.5. Put the 10.5 inch side along the top of your score board or paper trimmer, and score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches. Fold the first score line in a mountain fold, and the second in a valley fold. You should end up with a "z" fold card. The next part can get a bit tricky, so make sure you watch the video to fully understand what I am about to explain. On the back side of the "valley" fold, take a ruler and pencil and mark these measurements: 3/8 1 3/8 1 5/8 2 5/8 2 7/8 3 7/8
