Announcing our newest design team member and a GIVEAWAY!

Announcing our newest design team member and a GIVEAWAY!

HAPPY FRIDAY! Did I shout that? Why yes I did! There is no doubt there is always something fun and exciting happening at SCT and we’ve been keeping a little secret that we’re only too happy to share today! Ready? Please join us in welcoming our newest design team member Meghann Andrew! We’ve have been fans of Meghann’s beautiful work for some time and have had the pleasure of working with Meghann often over the past year. Her design style and amazing eye make her the perfect fit for our team and we’re thrilled she said yes! Here’s a little bit more about Meghann…


“I am a wife to a Brit, mother to a former micro-preemie girl who is now a happy, healthy four-year-old, and a documenter. Before I became a stay-at-home mother, I was an interior designer for the hospitality industry, and I use my knowledge of design to drive most of my creative decisions. We currently live in a suburb of Houston, Texas, but I have lived in several states, as well as the U.K., and I love to learn more about the world by exploring it. I capture life with my camera and make beautiful creations with those photos so that my family and I can remember moments from our lives together, but truth be told, I also LOVE working with pretty product! I currently teach two scrapbooking classes based on subjects that I’m passionate about at Big Picture Classes, and I am proud to be the Classroom and Blog Coordinator for Elle’s Studio.

Besides documenting life, I love to be in the kitchen cooking and baking for the people that I love.  I drink way too much coffee, have a hard time relaxing—there is always something to be done— am addicted to National Public Radio, and feel very blessed with the life I’ve been given. 

I am beyond excited to be joining the Scrapbook & Cards Today team. It really is a dream come true to stand alongside such talented women!”

~ Meghann
