Getting to Know YOUR Challenge Team - Stephanie Johnson!

And last but not least in the "Get to Know Your Challenge Team" introductions is Stephanie Thompson Johnson!
Hello everyone! My name is Stephanie Johnson from Miamisburg, Ohio, USA and am extremely happy to be a part of the Cookin' Up Creations Challenge Team. I teach Eighth Grade American History for a living, but have always loved creating art. I was introduced to scrapbooking when my oldest daughter was one and was instantly hooked. Scrapbooking has been a perfect hobby to combine my love of recording history and making art. My favorite items to document include my children, husband, pets, and travel photos. I have been a part of several design teams over the years and look forward to contributing to Cookin' up Creations.
Welcome to the Team Stephanie!

Getting to Know YOUR Challenge Team - Tamara Reed!

Next up in the "Get to Know Your Challenge Team" is Tamara C Reed!
I am Tamara Reed and have lived in Utah my whole life. I have been married to a wonderful supportive man for almost 42 years. We have two children and five grandchildren. I have been scrapbooking for over 50 years (yep I used to use colored paper and rubber cement) I enjoy scrapping and going to retreats that are available here in our city. I have several scrapbooking friends online and local that I enjoy learning from. I scrapbook chronologically so sometimes it is a challenge getting pages in order. I have enjoyed hanging here at cookin up creations for a very long time. It is a great place to enjoy the challenges that make you think and scrap outside the box. I am on oxygen 24/7 so most of our travel is road trips. I enjoy sewing, outdoors, hanging with the grandkids and taking them places. And I take WAY too many pictures!
Welcome BACK to the Team Tamara!

Getting to Know YOUR Challenge Team - Tracy Feeley

Next up in the "Get to Know Your Challenge Team" is Tracy Wilgus Feeley!
My name is Tracy and I live in Central Florida with my husband. We retired here from Maine about 9 years ago. I have 3 stepchildren and 2 granddaughters so I have plenty of photos to scrap....I'll never get caught up. I've been scrapping for about 15 years now. I started working part-time for Michaels and got talked into taking a card class and I was hooked immediately. For the next 5 years I think all my paychecks went right back to Michaels. I also enjoy card making along with altering things occasionally.I'm so glad to be back with Cookin' Up Creations for another term!
Welcome back to the Team Tracy!

Getting to Know YOUR Challenge Team - Kiki Halbert!

Next up in the "Get to Know Your Challenge Team" is Kiki Halbert!
Hello lovelies! I'm Kiki and I currently work part-time and live in the Lower Mainland in British Columbia, Canada. I have recently gotten back into scrapbooking after setting up my craft room again during the pandemic. After approximately a five-year period of not crafting at all, I'm ready and chomping at the bit to be part of the scrapbooking and art journaling community again. I recently started a YouTube channel to share my loves: creating and teaching. I want to play an active part in making sure that scrapbooking not only thrives as a hobby, but grows. And I'm thrilled to be part of the Cookin' Up Creations team!
Welcome to the Team Kiki!

Getting to Know YOUR Challenge Team - Jan Mosier!

Next up in the "Get to Know Your Challenge Team" is Jan Mosier!
Hello, my name is Jan Mosier and I have been scrapbooking for well over 20+ years now. I started out as a card maker but switched to scrapbooking when my husband purchased me a Canon Rebel (that was before digital cameras) for my 30th birthday. I went to my first Creative Memories class in 1996 or 97 and it was by far the best $5 I had ever spent. I am forever grateful to the CM consultant that introduced me to scrapbooking. I visited my first Michael's during our stay in El Paso, TX and I never looked back. There was way too many pretties to choose from. I eventually found my own style of scrapbooking, clean and simple with a little mixed media and a whole lot of white space. Most of the pages in my albums are of my 12 dogs, my son who lives next door, my beautiful step daughter and her 2 children (my grandchildren) and now my great grandson Kian. In the past few months or so, scrapbooking has become more of a creative outlet for me and I am thankful to be returning to the team again this term.
Welcome back to the Team Jan!

Getting to Know YOUR Challenge Team - Wendy Crowe

Next up in the "Get to Know Your Challenge Team" is Wendy Germain Crowe!!
Hello! My name is Wendy Crowe and I am so excited to be a part of the team. I have been scrapbooking for about 20 years now. I consider myself to be a simple scrapper but I do like to try out new techniques here and there. I love more whimsical pages in my albums and of course, I add a lot of Disney along the way. My main subjects are my 3 kids, son-in-law and my incredibly patient, understanding and supportive husband. My biggest motivations are always sketch challenges, mood boards and color palettes. Right now, I have a small corner for my scrapping spot but I am hoping one day to have my own room… maybe in about 8 more years when all the kids have gone off to college. Thank you again for this wonderful opportunity!
Welcome to the Team Wendy!

Getting to Know YOUR Challenge Team - Patti Schmitz

Next up in the "Get to Know Your Challenge Team" is Patti Schmitz!
Hi! I'm Patti and I am delighted to be heading up the events committee where I get to bring some of the crazy ideas that pop into my head to reality with the help of the great DT and of course, Tammy. My husband and I moved to North Carolina from WI in 2018 to work with Samaritan's Purse. We are the parents of 3 grown children, grandparents of the most fun grandchildren, and owned by two dogs. In our spare time, we are renovating our 1956 ranch house. Scrapbooking is not only a way for me to document family life but also an opportunity to be a bit of an artist where I get to transfer my creative thoughts to paper.
Welcome to the team Patti!
