My name is Addy ( Chic Planner Girl). Mom to three energetic amazing boys. Born and raised in California. Did four years of active duty in the Marines and am now a Marine Reserves. I have been a crafter and planning since a very young age. I love all things floral, stationery and just anything that lets me use my creative side. As a planner addict I love trying all the many layouts, and knowing I can keep all my plans well organized. As a busy mom planning has been crucial for our lives not only to keep organize and have time management but also as a creative outlook. I am also able to use my creative side by decorating my planner and even memory keep while I am planning. This has been huge for me because I love memory keeping and scrapbooking but with three little boys it is impossible to get done, but doing it in my planner has become so much easier and has the same satisfaction so I absolutely love my planners.
I have always had a love affair with paper. A Graphic Designer originally from South Africa, I have been intoxicated with Scrapbooking since 2010 after creating a keepsake gift for my Sister’s 30th birthday. Scrapping for me, is a joyful creative release and serves as an important way to tell my two young children stories about our lives together. Especially those everyday things that can so easily be forgotten! I enjoy adding interactive elements to my projects and I love learning new techniques. I’ve had the honour of being on some wonderful creative teams and having my work published in both print and online publications. Looking forward to new typefaces, good coffee and crafty adventures in 2016!
Hello, My name is Dorymar Perez, currently, I live in Connecticut but, I was born and raised in "La Bella Isla del Encanto, Puerto Rico!" I am a mother of 2 beautiful young girls (Adriana and Andrea). I have been happily married for 14 years. Since I was a child, my favorite hobbies were drawing and making crafts. I knew the wonderful world of scrapbooking 9 years ago, my husband invited a friend who hosted a scrapbook party at my house. Since that day, I can't stop creating and creating. I love to create project well detailed and elaborated. I always use any element from the collection to create. I create 3D projects, mini albums, layouts, mix media, cards, etc. I had the opportunity to take classes with many recognized scrapbook artists this has helped me to perfect my techniques. In addition to loving scrapbooking, I love volleyball, dogs and traveling. I'm currently designing and offering classes to one of the largest scrapbook store in the Caribbean. I thank God and Simple Story for giving me the opportunity to share what I love and being part of a team of talented and skilled women.

Jana Eubank lives in Bountiful, Utah, with her husband, Kevin, and their four children. She has always loved memory keeping and has kept journals and scrapbooks since her early school years. Her love of all things paper runs in the family, as she grew up in a family that owns a printing and copying business. She worked there throughout high school and college as a graphic designer. It was only natural that she became immediately addicted to scrapbooking when she discovered it 20 years ago. Jana has been on several manufacturer and kit design teams over the years and has been published in various scrapbooking magazines. She has also had the opportunity to work "behind the scenes" in the paper-crafting industry as a design team and blog coordinator, an art director, a graphic designer, and the co-owner of a product company. Besides scrapbooking, Jana also enjoys creating 3d paper projects, cards, party projects, home decor, and decorating her planner. She loves to teach, read, decorate her home, shop, travel, and spend time with her family.
Hi! I’m Jeanne Jachna. I’m a married, stay at home mom of two young adults, and one very active Akita puppy. I live in Northwest Indiana near Chicago. I like to read, garden, and cook, but I have been completely captivated by paper crafting. I can’t resist a new set of stamps, bling, big bows and colorful paper. I love to layer on lots of die cuts and mix different patterned papers together. My time crafting is a sweet escape and a fun way to express myself. I started my blog, A Kept Life in 2011. It’s been so fun to express myself through crafting, and I’m blessed with the many friends I’ve made who share my paper crafting obsession. I’m so excited to share my creations with you!
