We asked a few questions of our wonderful new team so you all could get to know them a little better. Sit back, relax, and enjoy learning a little bit about each of our new design team members.

Mary Pat1


Meet Mary Pat Siehl!

Where do you live? I live in Springboro, Ohio

What is your favorite thing to make? In regards to paper crafting I can’t choose just one thing. I love scrapbooking ( that was my first love) but I also love cardmaking, stamping, home décor items and altered items. If I get to work with paper then I am a happy camper!

Do you have kids? I have two boys that totally keep me on the run and having fun. I am totally stocked in photos for a lifetime. I am years behind and I love it!

If you could travel anywhere (and scrapbook it) where would you go? I would love to go back to Europe. I lived in Spain a couple of times and just love it.

What is your favorite scrap collection? I really can’t choose just one. I love paper and there are so many wonderful collections out there.

If you were locked in a room and forced to scrapbook, what tool would you have to have and why? I would have to have my Silhouette. It seems like I can’t make a project without it these days. I just love how versatile it is- home décor, scrapbooking, cards- it really is awesome!!

Staci Jones

Meet Staci Jones!

Where do you live? Beautiful Sandy, Utah. I love the mountains here, as I am an Oklahoma girl. I am grateful that everyday I wake up and see the mountains. I am also grateful that I am so close to the SS warehouse, even though my husband might not be. :)

What is your favorite thing to make? I love, love to make 12x12 scrapbook pages, but I am starting to get addicted to making smash books/mini albums for my daily journaling and Instagram pictures. I pretty much like to do anything crafty that requires me to play with paper.

Do you have kids? I have 4 of the most adorable kids ever. (Alright, maybe I am a little biased. :) ) My oldest is a 7 year old girl. When she was born 7 years ago, we found out she had Down Syndrome, but that hasn’t stopped her from being the craziest, funniest, most loving kid ever. Our second , also a girl, is 5 years old and keeps me on my toes. She loves to watch PBS kids and know so many random facts about different things that I am also learning something. Our third is a 3 year old boy. I always wanted all boys and I am glad to be only blessed with one. I come from a family of all girls so just having one boy is blowing my mind. He is wild, crazy, and as sweet as can be, especially with his little sister. Our youngest is a spunky and opinionated 20- month old. She brings so much joy into my life and is well suited to be the youngest. :)

If you could travel anywhere (and scrapbook it) where would you go? My dream is to travel through Europe, and especially Italy. I love all the movies that have scenes of Italy in them. The contrast of the gorgeous blue Mediterranean against the white buildings is just stunning. Have you heard about those world cruises, the ones that take you all around the world on a cruise ship? That is another thing I would love to do. I just want to see everything and scrap everything!

Candace Headshot


Meet Candace Zentner!

Where do you live? I am from a SMALL town in Alberta, Canada.

What is your favorite thing to make? My favorite thing to make is definitely layouts. I have been scrapbooking since I was just out of high school. Within the last couple of years, I have taken up card-making as well as anything else I can think of, that I can make with paper.

Do you have kids? I have three beautiful, sweet and fun little girls who keep me BUSY. They are four and a half, two and a half and six months old. It’s funny to think that I used to be scared I would have all boys, and never get a little girl!

If you could travel anywhere (and scrapbook it) where would you go? I would LOVE to go to Bora Bora and the Greek islands. I LOVE all things beachy, including scrapbook pages!

What is your favorite scrap collection? My all time favorite scrap collection is Summer Days by Echo Park. I am so in love with the bright, fun colors.

If you were locked in a room and forced to scrapbook, what tool would you have to have and why? I could never make a project without my paper trimmer. I could not cut a straight line if my life depended on it. I would also need my ATG gun… I don’t know what I ever did without an ATG gun!!


A huge welcome to all of you! We are excited to see what you create in the upcoming months. Make sure to stay tuned to see all of the inspiration from these talented girls!
