Our first ever design team call was a GREAT success and we'd like to say a special thank you to everyone that took the time to apply. Deciding wasn't easy...but with great pleasure we'd like to introduce the 10 talented ladies that will make up our inaugural design team....
My name is Bev Code and I have been scrapping about 3 years. I am a wife, mother of 2 and gramma of 4 grandkids. I love being retired and now have time to scrap to my heart's content. I live in Conestogo, Ontario, visit my mom's cottage in the summer and spend some time in Florida during the winter. I love time spent with family and friends... most of whom are subjects of my projects. My favourite layouts are double pages and I love making cards...but will attempt anything in a challenge. It is a pleasure to be on this Design Team. I look forward to working with the team, using Kreaxions/Just Imagine Products and hopefully sharing and inspiring.
I'm Deborah Long and I started scrapping in 2005 while waiting for our daughter's adoption paperwork to be finalized. I am married to Jeff, who patiently endures my ever-growing stash, and am momma to my 2 beautiful preschool-age children,Gabi and Noah. I'd like to say I'm patient enough to stay home with them, but I'm not, so I balance out my life by working full time. I love making traditional LOs (just can't get the hang of digi), cards, mini albums, and projects that let me involve my kids in crafting.
Hi Everyone! I am Ellen Sosnsoki. I live in a small town in Northeast Pennsylvania with my family. I have two boys, a husband and two dogs with whom I share my days and nights. I work PT as a Behavioral Specialist with children with behavioral issues and PT as an instructor at a local business college. I draw inspiration from color and texture and life around me. When I have a stressful day at work, I love to come home and create! I am so excited to work with Just Imagine Crafts. I love circles and punches and all things crafty and cannot wait to get started.
My name is Gini Cagle and I have been crafting all of my life, in one form or another. I was very successful as a bead artist (you can see my work on my blog - http://ginicagle.blogspot.com/2009/11/my-beadwork.html ). I had my work published in over a dozen books and magazines, and lectured and taught all over the country. But... my beaded pieces took on an average 500-1000 hours to complete. About 8 years ago, I began scrapbooking when my first nephew was born. I instantly fell in love with the immediacy of the medium (compared to the crazy hours I spent beading!) In the past year, I have gotten hooked on cardmaking, stamping and coloring with copics. It's really funny to look at any of my work, from beadwork to paper and to be able to see the same style emerge, regardless of the medium. I have always loved dimension, and color and layers. I would say my papercrafting style is Shabby Chic meets Dolly Parton.
Papercrafting is really a family thing for me. My sister and I love getting together at least once a week to color and craft - and of course, my 4 year old nephew wants in on the action as well! My husband, doesn't ever craft with me, but he is my biggest cheerleader, and is always supportive of what I do. We have been married, for a little over a year now. We have a fairytale romance - we knew each other in high school and were friends, but went over 20 years without any contact, and reconnected on Facebook and quickly knew we were meant to be together. I work as a Dental Hygienist - so papercrafting is always a welcomed release!
My name is Melissa Ferguson and I live on beautiful Vancouver Island, BC with my 2 kids, my ornery cat and my slightly neurotic pup. I have been scrapbooking for a little over 9 years now, beginning before my son was born and taking rather a large break between his first year and 2007. To me, scrapbooking is an opportunity not only to preserve my family's memories, but to meet and interact with amazing women from all over the world who share my passion for paper!
Hi! I am Rebecca Keppel and I started scrapbooking in 2005 after my daughter was born. What started as a way to create a baby album turned into much more. Although I have been "journaling" and taking tons of pictures my whole life, it wasn't until I saw scrapbooking as whole that everything clicked for me and the obsession began! Besides recording memories and playing with fun product, I love to learn new techniques and to learn about photography. I use a punch, corner rounder or cutter on just about every project I create because I think they are the most versatile tools in the papercrafting industry. They have the ability to make old product new and exciting again, and add a unique look to new product. I am thrilled to be a member of the inaugural Just Imagine Design Team!

Hi I'm Sharon Hinckley - I'm an international pianist/artist trained in both with many years teaching experience. I've published with Rubberstampmadness Magazine and the Somerset Studio. My cards are designed for just plain fun, publication, or to benefit non profit organizations such as the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra (WA). Many of these ideas are passed on in the frequent classes I teach in my studio. As a Ford Foundation Scholarship Recipient in commercial art and layout, I've been able to use that training to create cards, programs, fliers, etc. for the many concerts I've performed. Art and music go hand in hand! I look forward to sharing these items with all of you!

Hi everyone. My name is
Stephanie and I am a certified scrap-a-holic. I have been
creating since I was a child, doing everything from decoupage, sewing,
painting, macrame and all paper crafts. Paper crafting back then meant
using construction paper and rubber cement - oh how things have
changed!!!! In the last 16 years, though, my passion for scrapping
was rekindled with the birth of my son and the discovery of 100s of
photos from my Mom's childhood.
I love working with the amazing
products that are now available to us, so different from the papers I
grew up using. I love to create one and two page layouts
incorporating from one to 10 photos, depending on what I am working
on. I also love making cards and altering anything I can get my hands
on.I am a Ranger certified, being a recent graduate of Ranger University and am also Copic certified.I love using punches in my work and am just so excited to be working with Just Imagine.
Please join us in congratulating the new Just Imagine Design Team! We can't wait to see what creations they have in store for us!! You can find a complete list of our DT and links to their blogs in the nav bar to the right.
