I liked Greta Hammond. She used to have layouts in CK a lot. I'm partial to her too because I am from Indiana and I knew she lived here too. A lot of her pages were about events around Indy that I also attended. It was good inspiration!

I have wondered about some of these folks too. I actually went through some of my older publications one day and Googled several of the ladies whose style I admire most.

Wow, this thread is a huge blast from the past.

I long ago gave away/sold all of my CK magazines, including years of HOF albums, so I haven't seen these names at all in years.

But I can picture the artists and their kids now that they are being mentioned again.

This is a fun thread. I remember really enjoying Shelley Sullivan. She said something like if she had to choose three colors to scrap with, she would choose a shade of blue, green and khaki. That's not a quote, just the gist of something that introduced me to khaki and led me to kraft paper backgrounds. I still very much like kraft paper. She had that pretty little girl with straight dark hair in a lot of her layouts.

I saw Shelley's name come up through a mutual friend on Instagram and when I clicked through I had to giggle - that little girl is all grown up! Shelley has a younger daughter too but it made me feel more than a little old to realise the little girl we knew from those layouts is now older than I was when I first started scrapbooking.

I love Shelley's style too and always looked forward to her pages in the garden. No one rocks kraft cardstock in quite the same way!

I always liked Lisa Brown's clean, classic style, and also Nia Reddy's.
Most of all I miss Memory Makers and Scrapbooks, etc.

Erin Lincoln is one I really miss as well. I loved her supply savvy book.
I am kind of surprised that Tracy White disappeared as thoroughly as she did, she was so big and when SS folded I thought she would just reinvent and come back.

Who was the woman that wrote for CK that had recipes for pages, she gave you the exact dimensions of various papers to cut, like 3 different pp, and then you used them to create 3 completely different layouts. Those were great, kind of Ike the SG sketches, before we had them.

I miss Erin Lincoln's layouts too... I will never forget the video she posted of seeing her book in print... I was also wondering about Emily Waters - wasn't she a hall of fame scrapper then worked with Heidi Swapp... I don't know if they still work together much or not.

Brenda Arnall wrote the recipe pages for CK. She has a blog and posts projects from time totime. I enjoy reading it and seeing the updates on her granddaughter. She scrapped her a lot.

Oh wow... so many names from the past -- some I had forgotten about, but I was so inspired by through the years:

Rebecca Sower, of course. I still love to look through her "Scrapbooking Life's Little Treasures" book. I miss her creative talent, but she is channeling it into fabric art now. I follow her on both her blog and her Etsy shop.

Angie Randall and her PaperKuts magazine -- I still have all those issues! I was so sorry to see it close. I met her once at a convention, and she was so warm and friendly.

Renee Camacho: She was on a lot of design teams, including Autumn Leaves. Somebody mentioned her kids (they all had the same beautiful blue eyes).

Angelia Wigginton: Another favorite of mine. She had two little girls who I'm sure are all grown up now.

Elsie Flannigan, Nia Reddy, Tracy White (I, too, tried to find her after she left CK -- she was another sweet spirit), Faye Morrow Bell (loved her creativity), Lisa Brown,...

It was so good to see Lisa Bearnson back on HSN. It's funny how she got Becky Higgins into the business, and now Becky jump started Lisa's return. Full circle. Speaking of HSN, does anyone remember Kristi Banks who also worked for CK? Most of the layouts created on QVC were hers (she had 5 boys, I seem to remember and finally had a little girl). Her layouts were awesome!

I am so enjoying this walk down memory lane! Ah, the days of watching the kids grow up through the pages of the regular contributors, creating one's own embellishments (remember BH's My Creative Companion and The Art of Creative Lettering?), alphabet and border stencils, Ellison die-cut shapes, Hot Off The Press patterned paper packs,... Okay, some things I DON'T miss!

Way back when CK was brand new 16 or do years ago, there was a scrapper with a toddler named Karsten. I'm fairly certain she lived in Arizona.
She did the cutest pages

I wish I knew her name but she disappeared from CK and I never saw her layouts anywhere else

In the Mar/Apr 1997 issue of CK, there are layouts from a scrapbooker named Gwendy Kem who has a son named Karsten and lived in Scottsdale.

Also, I refuse to explain why I happen to have a copy of CK from 1997 in my home. Let's just say it's not hanging out all by its lonesome.

There is one I can't remember her name. She taught a class at the local lss. She was the best teacher. It was the most fun class I had ever had. She taught paper tearing & paper piecing. Maybe around 2000? I still use those in many of my pages. I am so thankful for her. Then I noticed she became a Garden Girl. I saw her in one of the special CK books. I think it was hall of fame. She used to be a teacher & stopped to take care of her son. She had fabulous pages about him. I noticed she had a daughter when she was here. I can still picture his pages. she was from Columbus Ohio.
I feel bad since I can't remember her name or kids either.

I used to love Kristy Banks, I remember before CK she was in the Pebbles in my Pocket magazine. Also there was Erika Clayton from Pebbles who had the cutest two little girls and I enjoyed her layouts. When we moved I got rid of most of my magazines but I did keep a few Pebbles magazines. What was fun about them is their magazine had a catalog so you could order the products they used in the layouts.

Thanks for looking that up

To go further down sb lane: When I first started sbing (around 1999), there was a sb show on PBS with 2 hosts both named Julie. They would have different segments, one with Stacy Julian and Deanna Lambson, both were with CK at the time. And one of my favorite segments was with Carol Snyder who was a lettering expert. She always seemed so nice and sort of shy, but did some really pretty lettering. Maria

Oh, how I love reading about all these old scrapbook 'friends'!

I too, miss Renee Camacho. She has a family blog now that you can find by Googling her, but she mostly posts family stuff now. She was incredibly talented, I loved her work in the Autumn Leaves books.

I also loved Sista Melissa (that was her peaname) but I can't recall her last name. She had a great, clean graphic style and I loved loved her thoughtful journaling on ther little girl's pages.

As for GG, I still miss Lisa McGary, and Jen Jockish and definitely Shelly Sullivan. I remember when I was going through my rough pregnancy she reached out to me, she was such a sweetie.

and my one first celeb crush and remains to be still is Shannon Tidwell. She's been here since the beginning practically and I'm *so* glad she's not burnt out on the hobby, and us, quite frankly. Shannon was the first scrapbooker whose work just made me sit there, mouth agape and say 'wow'. I remember she had a page called "You Sparkle" that she made of her mother holding a fireworks sparkler and it was my first 'scraplift'.

This is probably Karen Burniston.


She is still very much into scrapbooking.. she designs for Sizzix... just saw her last year in Colorado Springs demo'ing some templates. They were pretty awesome.

There was a lady that lived here in Colorado, I think Highlands Ranch (south of Denver)... her name is on the tip of my tongue. She got published a ton in CK back in the day...I even did a few crops with her in Aurora...she was active on here as well (her picture was a picture of herself with the camera in front of her face, like looking in a mirror)... I did Google her a while back and only thing I could find is that she moved to Nebraska... I wish I could remember her name. LOVED her layouts... She probably got published at least in every other CK issue... I believe she has two kids who would be grown now..

I was a huge fan of Allison Strine! I can picture her kids too. I was also wondering about Elsie. She just totally went off the radar. As did Heidi Swapp.

I used to L O V E Jennifer McGuire (she had a section in CK and was an artist for Hero). What happened to her?

Also, Margie Something? I think she was a designer for MM and then maybe had her own line? She taught some fabulous classes!
