Meet Your Team 2 Mavens!

Welcome back! Today, you will get to meet our Team 2 Mavens. These ladies will be inspiring you from the 8-15 of every month! So who is ready to meet these ladies????

Hi! I'm Anne-Marie. I'm a redheaded, freckled Irish girl but Italian by marriage :) I live in NYC with my husband and two kids - DS is a teenager and DD is in grade school and I haven't done either of their baby books yet LOL! I am a freelancer copy editor, editor, writer so I am always crunching some kind of deadline. As much as I love reading & writing, I find that the act of scrapping helps me not "burn out". I work at home so I take 5-10 min breaks every so often and do something a little scrappy. If only fondling some supplies...oh we all do that! ;) I started scrapping in 2000 when my son was a year old. I love looking back and capturing family stories and quirks and now that the kids are bigger, it's more important to capture all the everyday little things because it truly does go so fast! Aside from scrapping, I love crocheting, cross-stitching, and sci-fi/fantasy - reading, movies and TV - and 80s & heavy metal music. I'm a huge fan of Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Wars, Harry Potter, The X Files, Game of Thrones (books and show), Lord of the Rings...I could go on and on.  I'll be the resident geek. :)
A Cherry on Top:

Hello, my name is Connie Hall. I have been scrapbooking for over 10 years and been contributing online just over 4.  I have been married almost 26 years and we have 7 Children. 6 of our own and 1 chosen son.  We currently have 3 dog; Havoc, Motley and Maverick.  I also have a Nephew Asher that I scrapbook often.  I love to use Flowers, lace, stencils and paint.  I create a variety of styles Project life, Traditional, 3D and Mixed media. Most of my pages have layers and textures.  I am excited to be a Maven at Sketches in Thyme Project Life Style! 

Hi there! My name is Doreen Guilfoyle and I’m a lifelong papercrafter. As a little girl, I loved playing with my Dad’s Prisma Color pencils (my Dad was a paper box designer with a full art studio) and paper dolls. As an adult, I still love playing with paper, big girl paper dolls, stamps, Project Life, my Happy Planner and so much more.  

I live on the East Coast, near Philadelphia, with my husband and our young daughter. We currently have four kitties (Natasha, Cloey, Buzz and HammJake Milkshake), and volunteer as a family with a local cat shelter.

I dabble in many different styles but love to incorporate my stamps and recycled materials whenever possible. Creating handmade project life cards using sketches allows for such a vast spectrum of creativity. I’m very excited to be a new DT member with Sketches in Thyme Project Life Style.

When my hands aren’t all ink-y and covered in Glue Dots and glitter mist, they are most likely covered in flour as I love to bake and cook.  My blog, Pinterest and blog’s Instagram accounts are all about papercrafting, baking and my love of pretty things, retro, vintage and new. Please follow me:

Hello! My name is Lori Stroup and I live in a small SW Missouri town with my husband, Scott, and our two sons, Matthew and Shane. We also have a daughter, Abby, who is married to her high school sweetheart, and they have an almost 2 year old baby girl, Ada, that I get the pleasure of keeping while her Mommy teaches! I started scrapbooking about 18 years ago and haven't looked back since. Nothing relaxes me more than spending time in my scraproom. I love looking back at all that has happened and preserving those memories. I have a mostly clean and simple scrappy style, but lately I have really been enjoying adding more layers to my projects.  You can find me at -

Up until this month I was a SAHM to 3 little girls, Harmony is 5 and just started kindergarten, Melody is 4 and Symphony will be 2 in December. I have been married to my best friend / soul mate for almost 12 years (our anniversary is on Valentines) Crafting and DIY is very much a part of my every day life and it has began to rub off on my oldest daughter. 

I have been scrapbooking since I was a teen, but last year due to some very difficult times, I lost all my scrapbook albums and family photos. I decided that I would get back into it early in the year. My mission is to create beautiful memories from some of the most difficult moments that my family went through. I am also currently writing a Memoir and hope to be starting college soon for graphic design with a double major in journalism. My second passion is to write. I love all things crafts as they are things that soothe me. I started Project Life when I was working for the Home Shopping Network a few years ago. I was hooked from the moment I saw Becky Higgins launch. This year I have gotten more into 12x12 layouts, but I am hoping to also do my first December daily. I will also be starting Bible Journaling. I believe in sharing your stories to help you move past the hard parts. I want to empower you to not be afraid of what you have been through or who you are. Creativity is the way of life!! 

Treasa is a designer for The Crafty Pickle  and the owner of Project Life Card Swaps.
You can also find her on YouTube where you can follow her tutorials and see her amazing style come to life! 
Happy Scrapping
