Chark – Design Team Coordinator

Hi! I’m Charlene Kochensparger (Chark).  I’ve always loved drawing, crafting and the smell of new crayons. I’m a cardmaker, scrapbooker and a dabbler in other crafts.

I’m also a freelance writer and my first publication is a story in Military Life: Stories and Poems for Children.  I also write for the online mag Books Make a Difference.   A class with Jennifer McGuire made me a convert to Hero Arts stamps–love them! I blog about books and crafts at Glitter in my Kitchen. I am so excited to be a part of this talented team–here’s hoping I can keep up!

Cindy – Assistant Design Team Coordinator

Hello, I am Cindy, born in Hong Kong currently living in Montreal, Canada. I am a mother of two teenage boys (16 and 18). I am programmer analyst working from home, and am looking forward to retiring. Then I would have more time to spend on my rubber stamping hobby!! J I enjoyed drawing in my teenage years, and dabbled in a little bit of water colors in my adult life. But while looking for a gift I’ve discovered rubber stamping and I am now addicted!! Hero Arts stamps were among the first few stamps I acquired and I have always enjoyed their products and their web page/blog! It was for their challenge that I hopped onto the web, and then blog land. I have been making cards for a few years now, although I think I am still looking for my style, I must admit I enjoy making “clean and layer” cards. Other than stamping, I enjoy cooking and when the weather is nice, I tend my garden. I look forward to working with the wonderful DT here at a2z Scrapbooking.

Leslie – Challenge Coordinator

Hi, my name is Leslie Turner. I’m married with two grown children and one granddaughter, and I live in beautiful Colorado. I began scrapbooking about 40 years ago, way back when scrapbooks were really bland – before all the fun papers and embellishments came about. For the last 20 years or so, my paper passion has been card making. I started out making computer-generated cards, graduated to card kits, then quickly realized that having my own stash of stuff was the way to go! The rest is history, as they say! I’m addicted to rubber stamping and also enjoy making 3-D paper projects, especially paper shoes and gift bags. I’ve been known to alter a few tins and boxes, and enjoy beading and making jewelry occasionally when I find time. Come visit me at my blog, Love To Scrap 2! Thanks so much for the opportunity to be a part of the a2z Scrapbooking design team!


Kristina – Technical Director
I’m 29 years old {forever}. Born, raised, and still live in the moderately small town of Commerce Township, Michigan. By trade, I’m a real estate agent currently working as the marketing & closing coordinator for a top producing agent. I’m a dog mommy to my beautiful Cocker Spaniel Bella, who enjoys playing in my paper scraps all over the craft room floor. In addition to crafts, I would have to say my other passions are cooking and music. Oh and Nail Polish!! My crafting style tends to lean towards the “clean and simple”, the opposite of what my craft room looks, but I also like to venture into new techniques whenever possible. Scrapbooking is my true passion, but I recently delved into the world of card making and quite enjoy it….You can visit me at my blog anytime!
Live, Love, Laugh, Scrap




Hi ! Welcome to our blog! I am so excited to be launching this blog. I have been scrapbooking since 2012. I had a heart attack shortly after 9-11 and wanted my kids to know my story. Now I scrap just because it is therapuetic:)

I  am addicted to paper. I can just sit and look at it for hours. I really love the girly ones, but with two boys I rarely have an opportunity to use it.

I have been with a2z Scrapbooking since it started in 2007.  The company was started to raise money for Celiac and Behcets Awareness. We are all volunteers. I really enjoy working there. I love being able to meet customers from all over the world.

You can also find me on my blog: Visions of Paper.



I am from Brisbane, Australia in sunny Queensland , where I live on an acre with over 40 spoilt chickens, 2 spoilt rescue beagles, my husband and awesome 17yo daughter.

For many years I operated my own highly successful graphic design business until a disease stopped all that and so still needing a creative outlet I started making cookbooks and that led me to a craft store and now I am completely addicted. I have always loved stationery and so craft equipment is like being in heaven. I do anything creative, scrapbooking as number one and I like texture and height, flat designs are not me. Mixed media and off the page projects are a big favourite too, but I love a challenge and to try new things. When I am not running around after my animals or loving my daughter, I can always be found at my craft desk, often, very late into the night. www.jacobicreations.com



Hi! I’m Sue N. I live in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia. I love crafting. Give me a table, some crafting tools and a bit of music and I’m a happy girl! I started off my papercrafting with scrapbooking. Lately, I’ve been taking fewer photos yet have so much paper, that I started to make cards.

I’d love for you to visit my at my blog – http://foleysfriend.blogspot.ca/
