i am so thankful to be apart of this design team

please let me know if you see something you would like to order, christine carries alot and can also place special orders for you! she has unbelievable prices


FB page:

please help me welcome the two other designers to this great team!


Hi all! My name is Jasmine and I am super excited to be a part of the CraftingFamily Design Team!

I've been paper-crafting for about 8 years now, but involved in all kinds of crafts for as long as I can remember. These include rug hooking, cross-stitching, pottery and beading, and baking but scrapbooking and making altered art is my number one hobby. I love to learn new techniques and just starting teaching layout classes at my local scrapbook and stamping store, so I'm hoping to share some of those techniques with the ladies over there as well as on here too!

I'm a stay-at-home momma to two lively, energetic and lovable little boys named Charlie (almost 5), and Owen (almost 3). They keep me on my toes and give me lots of inspiration and fuel to keep my scrapbooking going! I've been married to my husband Jonathan for almost 8 years (our wedding was what got me started scrapbooking), and he is my best friend and fully supportive of my paper addiction! I'm also the momma to 2 dogs, a beagle named Cricket and a collie mix named Tien....crazy, busy little household, but I wouldn't have it any other way!

I'm excited to be a part of this team and can't wait to share some projects and ideas with everyone!! ♥


Hello everyone! I'm Michele. I've been "crafting" for many years....12 years to be exact. I love to make cards, alter things that most people wouldn't think about altering, and scrapbooking.

I am the mom of two beautiful and exhausting girls (16 & 10) and wife to a charming man. We have 2 kitties and 1 doggie. :D I work fulltime so when I craft, it's usually after work and on the weekends when I NEED the break. ;)

I have been on the design team for Crop Chocolate for a little over 1 year and have loved how much fun it's been. I have loved learning more about myself through the designs I have made over the last year. I have also LOVED meeting such wonderful people and making lifelong friends!

I look forward to the fun and rewarding adventures we will experience as a design team for :)

so if your looking for a great deal on scrap supplies, head over to craftingfamily and let us know!
