Want2Scrap Design Team!

We want to introduce you to the fabulous Want2Scrap Design Team!!  These very talented ladies have decided to join our Want2Scrap family and we just couldn’t be more excited.  Their love of scrapbooking and all things paper really shows through in their amazing designs!  I’m sure you will be as blown away by their talent as we are! 
So without further adieu, let me introduce to you the following ladies:
design-team-mimi Hi, my name is Mimi Leinbach and I am 37 years old. Yikes! I am a SAHM to 2 soccer loving boys Nick(12) and Jack(8) and when I am not scrapping, I can surely be found at a soccer game or helping out at school. I have been married to Josh for over 15 years. He has given me the freedom to indulge myself in this hobby and I just adore him for it.
You could say I am obsessed, completely and totally. I have been scrapping for 12+ years now and I would say my style is ever changing. I like to try every technique at least once and some a lot more. I have a passion for patterned paper, to which I just can't seem to get enough.
I have been published several times in Creating Keepsakes, Memory Makers Magazine and Books, Scrapbooking and Cards Today, Scrapbook Trends, Simply Handmade as well as Scrapbooking and Beyond magazine.

Hi!  My name is Melissa Sauls and I am absolutely THRILLED to be a part of this inaugural team!  I am a die-hard stamper/card maker and started out like most…a stamping party!  I was introduced to the craft about 5 years ago when a good friend of mine invited me to a “stamp party.”  A stamp party…hmm…I wasn’t sure if I wanted to go.  The whole time, I literally thought I was going to a party about postage stamps!  Well, it turned out to NOT be about anything postage related and it was a pure hit with me!  I’m an engineer by trade so you could probably call me anti-artistic but I loved every single second of what I created!  My style has definitely evolved over the past few years and I’d say that I’m DEFINITELY into the vintage/shabby looks right now.   Give me vintage trim, twills and ribbon, flowers, bling, and creamy colors and I’m just in heaven!
When I’m not “making my magic” in the wee hours of the morning, I tend to my adorable, yet rambunctious 2 and 5 year old.  After a very full day of that, I’m ready to wind down and give myself some crafting therapy.  I hope you’ll enjoy what you see here and if not…well it was probably made after midnight and that’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it!

Hey everyone! I am so excited to see you here at Want2Scrap and so excited to be a part of the Design Team! A little about me….I am a wife, mother, paper/coffee/ vintage addict, blogger, and paparazzi to unsuspecting family and friends…to name a few things! I grew up and still live in Northern California, so all of you who have "real" winters will chuckle when I say it's "cold" anytime the temp drops below 60 degrees!
As far as paper goes..what's not to love? I've been hoarding paper since I was a wee girl and the habit continues. I love all things sparkly, vintage/shabby chic, handmade, lacey and girly! You will frequently find me trying to turn "trash" into treasure when it comes to "found" items and I have an affinity for trying new ways to make handmade flowers lately. I'll make cards, 3-D altered/template items, and scrapbook pages...pretty much if you can make it with paper, I'll try it! Too bad I can't make dinner out of paper!
I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you! Please feel free to stop by my blog or leave me a message in my blog posts here at Want2Scrap if you have questions for me. I'm happy to help!
