Short bio: Hello there! My name is Jennifer and live in Iowa with my husband Adam and two kids, Keira (6) and Connor (3). I work full time as a Quality Improvement nurse, but after the kids are in bed you can usually find me scrapping. I primarily create 12x12 layouts and pocket pages. I have been scrapbooking since 2006 and literally cannot imagine my life without it! Other than scrapbooking, I love to cook and practice my photography. I can't function without coffee and I have an embarrassing typewriter obsession. I am excited and honored to be designing for American Crafts, this is truly a dream come true!

Favorite thing to scrap: It's a tie between pocket pages and 12x12 scrapbook pages

Favorite American Crafts product: The embellishments - American Crafts has such unique and detailed ones in all their lines.

5 fun facts:
1. I have been a nurse for 10 years and am currently pursuing my Master's degree.
2. I collect typewriters and have seven!
3. I would rather be inside than outside.
4. Next year we are going on an Alaskan cruise; I am so excited!
5. The sewing machine I use for scrapbooking was given to me by my grandmother and originally purchased in 1986.
