Beatriz Farquhar-Guzman
My name is Beatriz.
I was born in Venezuela but came to the US when I was 17. I met my wonderful husband Steve in college and have been here ever since. We have been blessed with two children, Valerie and Daniel. They are both happily married to their high school sweethearts.
I've been an "official" scrapper since 2004 and I love every minute of it. Some of my favorites are patterned papers, chipboard, flowers and lace. I love to scrap two-page layouts. This lovely hobby has given me so many new friends all over the world! I am very honored to be part of this fabulous design team. Thank you Kristine for giving me this great opportunity!

Candace Pelfrey
Hello Everyone!
My name is Candace and I am so excited to be a part of the Scrap Team. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 3 years now and I have two cats. I have been paper crafting for about 6 years. I love to use my cricut and my gypsy. Besides paper crafting, I also have a Halo video game addiction and I am still trying to figure out a way to combine the two. :) I also enjoy participating in craft fairs during the fall. I hope to inspire you!


Kimmy Jaster
My name is Kimmy Jaster and I teach 4th grade in a tiny town in northern Arizona. I have been scrapbooking since junior high, back when cutting your photos into shapes was the "cool" thing to do.
I also like to make other art, paint, and draw. I can't go a day without Dr. Pepper, and I love to travel.
I have no kids of my own, but a 3 year old niece who is the light of my life. She keeps me hopping!
I am so excited to be part of TPE team!

Candace Mitchell
Hi there! My name is Candace Mitchell. I'm a 24-year-old, Christian, very blessed Mississippi girl. I have an amazing family, and I'm engaged to Andrew. I am an 8th grade English teacher. It's very hard, but I love working with kids. I started paper-crafting back in 2007, and I was hooked immediately. Scrapbooking is so important to me because it is my way of telling stories through photos. I also love making cards. Random things about me: I'm OCD about organization. I love Reese cups, especially the holiday ones. Steel Magnolias is my favorite movie, and my favorite TV show is Army Wives. I love Christian music. I've never had a peanut butter & jelly sandwich. I've read everything that Nicholas Sparks has ever written. I'm currently designing for several teams, and I consider this a great honor and blessing. I'm especially happy to be a part of the team here at The Pink Elephant! To see my work and read more about me, check out my blog at


Jennifer Hagfeldt
Hi, my name is Jennifer and I live in Oregon.
I am married and have three beautiful children ages 11, 7 and 3.
I love stamping, scrapbooking and just crafts in general.
I also enjoy photograpy. Especially taking pics of my sweet kids!

Jess Moyer
I’m a 22 year old college student studying to become an elementary school teacher.
I began scrapbooking after a trip to Italy when I was sixteen. As time went on I got more interested in techniques and all the wonderful products that are available out there. I love to make layouts, cards and altered projects. I try to concentrate on journaling and recording events beyond the pictures when I scrapbook. For the most part I think my style is clean and simple. I love bright strong colors and original patterns. While I love embellies I can never seem to add enough to ever make a dent in the stash I’ve collected. I find challenge blogs to be my main source of inspiration so I am so excited to be part of the Pink Elephant Challenge Blog and hope that all our participants will be inspired by the great challenges and DT creations!

Sarah White
I am Sarah White and I live in Annapolis, MD. I am married to a wonderful husband and we have two boys. Reid is 6 and Elias is 2. In my life before children I taught fifth grade. I now work as a Mentor Teacher for first year teachers. I have been scrapping for about ten years and making cards for around five years. It is truly what keeps me sane. I am so excited to be a part of TPE scrapbook design team. Hugs, Sarah
Sarabeth Burke
my name is sarabeth. i'm 28 years old and live in ny with my supportive hubby sean and pup riley.
i am proud to say that i am addicted to scrapbooking and i just cannot get enough-especially
when it comes to shopping for the goodies! i am so excited to be here on TPE team!
i cannot wait to share my creations with you all!

Mary Hamer
I have been crafting for as long as I can remember. At a young age I used to help my mother
with her own crafts and developed a passion for working with my hands and designing
many different creations to make people smile. Although I love to paint and
make vintage/prim goodies, my passion is truly paper crafting.
My addiction started with stickers and has spread to paper, ribbons - you name it!
Wait until you see pictures of my scrap space - oy! I think I have
a serious addiction to most scrapping supplies - LOL!

I live in Illinois with the most WONDERFUL husband in the whole wide world (he even shops for my crafting supplies, how cool is that?). He is my number one fan and loves to give me support and advice on all of my creations. I work full time as a school Media Specialist - but scrap
every second I can!
I am honored to be on the Pink Elephant's design team and can't wait to get to know everyone and make new friends. There are so many inspiring artists in this group and I am lucky to be a part of it!

Tina Phillips
My name is Tina and I am a SAHM of five boys from Knoxville Tn. Yup you read that correctly FIVE.....BOYS!!!! I have only recently gotten back into paper scrapping/paper crafting in the last couple of months after doing much much nothing but digi for the last 3 or 4 years, I got the bug again and had almost forgotten how addicting it is! I jumped head first into a blog challenge in Feb and the rest is history.....LOL. The kids do keep me busy but I make time for scrapping because it is a sanity saver for me........not that there is much left to I am so excited to be a part of TPE!!

Beth Ranney-Thomas
My name is Beth Ranney-Thomas and I like most others I have an affinity for paper, ink, and glue! as well as a need for visual stimulation. I have enjoyed paper crafting for nine years now and my first attempt was to scrap book using construction paper and Elmer's glue. My children , husband and nature are my inspiration to most of my creative process. My children because of their endless fascination and imaginations, my husband well he brings home the bacon so to speak and nature Wow, what is not to inspire! ! I love Color, Black and Texture ( lots of it)! I have yet to pinpoint my style because it is ever changing for the most part for me I'd like to try almost anything once because hey, it's only paper!

Janet Mosier
I live in South Carolina with my husband Jack of over 20 years, our son Kyle and 4 fur babies. I’ve had the opportunity to live in TX, IL, and TN but S. C. will always be home to me. I’ve been paper crafting in some form or another since I was able to use scissors without supervision. My hobbies include card making, scrapbooking, shopping and amateur photography.
Angela Muir
Hi! I am Angela, married to my husband Mark for 21 years, we have 4 beautiful children, Christie 19, Aden 17, Lachlan 14 and Patrick 12. I own and run a Learn to Swim business which keeps me quite busy. I have been sort of crafty in one shape or form my whole life! I have been making cards for years and love patchwork quilting and stumbled upon scrapbooking about 6 years ago attending a Creative Memories demonstration, immediately hooked! I didn't start seriously scrapping until about 2 years ago. I am so excited to be a part of The Pink Elephant team and look forward to sharing the challenges with you!

Fern Riley
I am a wife of 33 years to a wonderful husband who spoils me waaay to much. I'm also a mother of 2 grown children and grandmother to 2 little sweethearts.. Next month (June) it will be 3 little sweethearts. My grand babies are the main subjects for most of my layouts. I started scrap booking close to 5 years ago when my first grand child was born. I took a little time out to do cards, but then decided between the two, scrap booking was my real passion. I think it's totally mind boggling to think that the layouts I'm making today may be viewed by our future generations... Is that amazing or what!! So, I like to think I'm creating a little piece of family history for the future generation and I'm having a lot of fun doing it!! Hugs!!
