Design & Education Team
Candy Rosenberg - Director of Education & Lead Educator
My name is Candy Rosenberg and I have been an artist since I was born, I was cutting paper the second I could fit scissors in my hand. When I was first introduced to scrapbooking nearly 5 years ago now, I really did not take to it very easily. It took quite a while to get it figured out.
I remember walking into my first Creating Keepsakes Convention in Portland, Oregon. I made the four hour trip with my 8 year old daughter and when we first walked up to the convention area there was a roped off section of rolling totes. I can remember looking at all the totes with stacks of other totes on top of them that went 4-5 feet high. The first thing that came to mind was "are these women completely out of their minds"!
Little did I know that I would eventually join that group of crazy women! I went one step further however as I started to find my niche. I love to teach, I love playing with paper and making art and most especially inspiring others.

Beth Gaddis - Design Team/Blog Coordinator & Designer
My name is Beth. I'm a paper crafter by day, insurance agent by night (crappiest super hero secret identity EVER) living in the relative middle of nowhere. I'm married, with three rotten pets. I am an avid scrapbooker, a Facebook & Twitter addict, and a Disney dork. I am in constant countdown mode for the next Disney World trip or weekend at the Georgia coast!
Emily Lanham - Designer
I am a stay at home mommy and wife and I reside in southern Ohio. I have been scrapbooking for as long as I can remember, but I really got into the hobby (and collecting paper) about 7 years ago. I am always up for a challenge and I enjoy creating with objects that I can find around my house. I'm an altered arts/album making kinda girl, that's really where my heart is... but with paper crafting, the possibilities are endless, every day I find a new reason to love what I do, and that's how I know that I've found my niche in life.
