The Design Team

Anna - Owner
I'm Anna White-Sharman and I officially took over running The Studio from Amanda in July 2013 after being on the DT and helping out here for many years previously!
I started crafting and making cards when I become ill years ago and its been a live saver, its helped me though some tough times and I really love creating. I do all sorts of crafts but my main ones at the moment are scrapbooking and mixed media.

I love running The Studio, creating challenges with the help of my great design team to inspire others to get creating!


Hello , I’m Denise and I live in southern Germany with my  family. I have been a scrapbooker since I got my first camera when I was sixteen. I decorated my albums long time before I ever heard the word “scrapbooking”. Ten years ago, I was infected with all the possibilities of die cutters, papers, stamps and embellishments. Last year, I started with mixed media and up to now, I like this style: a little bit neat, a little bit messy. I am really excited, to be a part of this design team at the studio challenge blog!

Hi, I'm Helen and I'm from Perth, Western Australia.  I have been scrapbooking since 2002 when I first got introduced to this wonderful hobby. I used to scrapbook clean and simple double pages, however, over time my style has morphed more into a messy mixed media single page one.  I also like to create YouTube videos as a source of inspiration, well I hope others find inspiration and don’t just laugh at my Aussie accent. In my craft room I scrapbook, make cards, create mixed media canvases, art journal and paint abstract paintings. Really, I enjoy anything that feeds my creativity. By day I am a primary school teacher and by night a single mother to teenage twin boys. 


My family and I live in a small suburb of Kansas City, Kansas, just over an hour and a half north of where I grew up.  I am a former, kindergarten teacher turned adoring wife, of 16 years, to BJ and stay-at-home, homeschool mom to Ezekiel (14), Adina (9), and Kaden (3).  When I’m not taking care of or playing with my family, you can find me cooking, baking, gardening, sewing, taking pictures, blogging at Soaring, and of course, paper crafting.  My love for the latter started, over 15 years ago, at a Stampin’ Up workshop; but I have been creating with any and every form of crafting media, that I could get my hands on, since I was old enough to hold a crayon.  I’ve been honored to have had a number of published works of art, as well as to get to design for some of my most favorite manufacturers and challenge blogs, which currently include Pretty Little Studio and Paper Sweeties, and am just thrilled to continue, since October 2013, to be a part of the talented likes of The Studio Design Team!  I hope that I can inspire you all to get creating.


Hi!  I'm Lisa-Marie and I live in Durbanville - which is in the Western Cape, South Africa.  I am widowed and have a precocious, delightful, awesome 7-year-old daughter (who you will see on a lot of my layouts!)  I have been scrapping for about a decade now and it's safe to say that it has become my absolute passion (and therapy too!).  I am fortunate enough to not work, so you will find me in my little scrapping room Monday to Friday, pretty much from dusk 'til dawn.  Most of my work comprises single page layouts, but I do enjoy off the page / altered projects and mixed media canvases; and I have been known to dabble with card making, tags and art journal pages too.  I serve on four other Design Teams currently; and I am BEYOND thrilled to join The Studio as well!  My scrapping tells stories - I don't just do it for the art.  My poor daughter will have to buy a rather large house one day for all the albums, canvases and such like, I have to pass on to her!!  For the past two years, my New Years resolution has been to create more art - so far so good, onward and upward from there.  I'd love you to follow my scrapping journey over at my blog - - and my older work is over at  I also have a Facebook page -  Scrapping continues to evolve and there is SO much inspiration out there; what a privilege it would be for me, if I could get to inspire you too!

Hi, I'm Vivian and I'm from Indiana, but now reside in Texas. I started scrapbooking in 1998 when it was nothing more than a few decorative cutting scissors to work with. Since then, I have spent many years developing my own unique style. I love playing with die cuts for my cards and 3-D projects. But for my layouts, I tend to stay with the clean look with lots of negative space. Scrapbooking eventually led to my second love, photography. For both of these creative styles, my favorite subject is my son with his big, blue eyes.
