Nancy Keslin is a paper crafter and mixed media artist focusing on scrapbook pages, mini albums, and home décor.  You can find tutorials, both written and video, on her blog; along with other creative inspiration.  When not creating she can be found home schooling or driving her children; sometimes simultaneously.
Sue Eldred:
Sue-Urbane Effect
I am a married, mother of three great kids; two married, one teen.  I have two adorable grandsons, which are the objects of my attention, affection and the subjects in a lot of my scrapbooking.  I love spending time with my family, watching my son play baseball, container gardening, photography and visiting the beach.  I live in a small town in the Heart of Illinois called Washington.
I have a eclectic style of paper crafting.  I like clean and simple, shabby, vintage and
at times I like to get completely ink.  I get a great deal of satisfaction out of creating for myself and others.

Raechelle (Rachel) Bellus:
Raechelle1 6.8.13
Hello! I'm Raechelle (Rachel) Bellus and I live in Spokane Valley, WA. My husband and I have a blended family of six children, one boy and five beautiful girls ages 14-24, with only two remaining at home. Our four children that have left the nest are spread across the country busy creating lives of their own, and while it is difficult to have them all so far away, it is heartwarming to watch them blossom and grow. I have been scrapping for about 13 years now and never lose the thrill of a completed project. To me it is more than just playing with paper, it is a creative outlet that I can share with my family and others who are just as passionate about paper as I am. I love to read and work puzzles when I am not hanging out with my family. I am honored to be joining the Clear Scraps design team!
Lisa Spiegel:
Hi, I'm Lisa Spiegel and I'm thrilled to introduce myself to you as a member of the Clear Scraps Design Team.  I live in Southern California with my hubby of 21 years and our three daughters and I think it would be safe to say I'm totally obsessed with scrapbooking. :)  I have been scrapping for more than 18 years but when I'm not being a SAHM or scrapbooking, I am a Lamaze Childbirth Educator and I dabble in photography (as all scrapbookers do!). I hope to inspire you with my projects and share my love of memory keeping with you.

Jamie M. Shaw-Tardif:
My name is Jamie M. Shaw-Tardif,  I am located in Silver Springs, Florida. My favorite color is PINK! I am a graphic designer and have been one since I was 12 years old!! I have an A.A. from Lake Sumter State College in Graphic Design and I started Scrapbooking in 2002 and have not turned back since. I am an avid user of inks, variety of papers, stickers, embossing folders and powders, jewels, ribbons, sequins, stamps and more stamps! I can design to any challenge, and consistently design items, pages, and layouts! 12×12 pages, Project Life Cards, and Occasional Cards. I love to support people creatively and I love to teach people how to be passionate in what they believe. I understand the NEED for being the historian for your family, and teach it widely. I am an avid Cameo user, and teach classes locally. I hope I can inspire you!

Katie Zoey Ho:
Hi, I'm Katie from Singapore; a tiny tropical country where you will be surrounded with lots of greeneries. Happily married, living with my husband in a small apartment away from downtown area where we enjoy peace and fresh air together with our pots of plants and herbs... I started papercrafting as young as 3 years old; mostly in folding and cutting of papers. When I get to discover what is scrapbooking in one of my local craft stores, I was mesmerized by the pretty papers and embellishments. I was amazed by how much we can do in creating keepsakes. From there on, I'm addicted, and deeply addicted. Every single piece of keepsakes, I create with a story behind and build within my heart so that memories will last. Love everything that's artsy, shabby, vintage, grunge and beautiful, I enjoy creating, designing and play with different elements and mediums to give some dimensional to my projects. Apart from this, I'm a footwear design student, learning the art of making shoes in the Italian way. So glad to be part of Clear Scraps Design team, looking forward to create more dimensional projects and get inspired together. 

We also have some INCREDIBLE designers we just LOVE and wanted them to be part of the family- it's a new program from Clear Scraps- 


You do not want to miss these talented women!
