Today is the final day of our 2021 creative team introductions, and we’re sharing our final five returning team members with you. Scroll down to find out a bit more about each one of these talented women!
My name is Paige Evans, and I have been scrapbooking since I was 16 years old when I got my very first job at a little local scrapbook store in Redmond, Washington. I’ve been scrapbooking for over half my life and love it as much today as I did back then. I have 10 signature scrapbooking collections with American Crafts and an 11th in the works. I love teaching how to create eye-catching layouts as well as coptic bookbinding courses. I live in the suburbs of Denver with my husband of 13 years, our son Fox, our daughter Jane, as well as a menagerie of pets. I love to create something every day!
Virginia started scrapbooking in 2003 when she was introduced to Creative Memories. After creating her first scrapbook layout, she was instantly hooked. Virginia enjoys making scrapbook pages, mini albums, and cards. She shares her passion for crafting and has taught many classes at Crop & Create. Her scrapbooking design style always includes beautiful layers of patterned papers and fun embellishment clusters. When she is not scrapbooking, Virginia loves to spend time with her family (and 2 pups) relaxing at their cottage.
Nicole lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada with her husband and three children. When not working full-time, or driving her kids between activities, Nicole can be found doing something creative, including creating digital cut files for JustNick and for Scrapbook & Cards Today. Nicole has been in the industry for several years and you may recognize her from a variety of design teams including Jillibean Soup, Simple Stories, Doodlebug Design, and more. Nicole has been an educator for Crop & Create events across Canada for several years and has a few online classes with Big Picture Scrapbooking and PageMaps University. Nicole’s projects are full of colour and loads of pattern, too! She loves to share her love for patterned paper, layering, and her tips for mixing patterned paper to create fun and unique scrapbooking projects.
Erica Thompson, also known as Erica Rose Creates, has been a scrapbook designer and educator for over 6 years. She got her start with crafting in middle school when she was given a scrapbook for Valentine’s Day. She loved taking photos and documenting her time in school and with her friends. This has carried through her adulthood and she continued her passion for documenting with her family.
Erica loves to explore when creating, though she loves clean, white space with splashes of color using inks and mists. More recently her signature style has included cut files, which she enjoys backing with pattern papers. Erica currently serves on the Pinkfresh Studio, Jillibean Soup, Doodlebug Design, and Bella Blvd design teams. Past design teams include The Cut Shoppe and Clique Kits, and she has guest designed for Paige Evans & Catherine Pooler Designs. She has also been featured in publications such as Creative Scrapbooker and Scrapbook & Cards Today.
Latisha Yoast has been sharing her love for card making and stamping since 2004. She has been contributing her artwork to many companies & publications in the craft industry for the past 15 years. Work on her blog, occasional classes, publications, and being on marketing teams have created a style that appeals to the masses. You can find monthly inspiration from her found on the Lawn Fawn, SCT, and Fancy Pants Designs Blogs. Offline and in print, you can currently find Latisha’s work in the SCT magazine as well as their SCT Delivered Card Kits.
Latisha resides in Florida with her husband Jess, kittens Peach and Zelda, along with their mini schnauzer Skipper. She has two children Kendall and Jacob who both attend universities in Florida.
