Meet the Scor-pal Team-Stephanie Ackerman

My name is Stephanie Ackerman and I'm a scrap-a-holic. I love anything paper related. I have been creating in some form since I was a child and I've watched how this craft has evolved and how it has evolved us. Telling the story of our lives is important, but just as important is the presentation of the projects we create. To me, this is a labor of love and I certainly do enjoy creating - and the more layers I better! I find my day is just not complete if I haven't spent some time in craft room. While I love to create layouts and altered items, I adore creating cards and my Scor-Pal is always by my side. I also love my Cricut Expressions and they can be found happily chirping along with me while I create. I am passionate about this craft and all paper craft avenues from card making to stamping to altering anything I can get my hands on.

I have been married to Gary for 30 years and we have a 16 year old son about whom I love to scrap. But, being the typical teenage boy, it is very hard to get pictures of him, so I take them when I can. Since he is a sports jock, I can generally get those pictures without any problem at all. Now, if only, I could get a decent picture of him these days!!!!

I have also discovered that I love to teach paper crafting classes, whether it be in my home studio or at my local stores. I love showing others the joy of this wonderful craft and I encourage everyone to try new techniques and products as they appear on the shelves of the stores.

I am thrilled to be a part of the Scor-Pal design team. 

Thanks, Stephanie. 
Here is the project Stephanie chose to share today:

Love the little bags you've created! Good luck in capturing a good picture of your son! I went through that with my son. He's 29 now and I realized the other day that I have very few pics of him throughout his teen years, and well, still to this day I can't get him to stand still for a good pic!

I like the little bags. They are great for school treats and such.

weze said...

another great project! I totally agree that boys are much harder to get pictures of once they have reached the teen years. I should know I had FOUR of them!
