Hi there! I'm Lisa Andrews and I'm happy that you've stopped by.
I'm a wife to Ward (for almost 20 years!), mom to three great kids and they are my joy and usual subjects in my scrapbook pages.
Teaching and documenting life have been two of my loves ever since I was little. All during my growing up years our family would meet up with my cousins at my grandparent's house ever Sunday. It was there they my love for teaching began as I taught my sisters and cousins all sorts of important school related things like math and reading. Creating homework and grading papers was so much fun! From that time on, I knew that I wanted to be a teacher.
Taking photos started when I was eight years old and received my first camera. I remember turning my film in at the developer and then the excitement of picking up my photos and seeing what I had captured with my camera. Many magnetic albums were filled with these early photos which have now all been emptied and safely archived.
My degree is in elementary education and I taught 4th and 1st grades for four years before I was able to stay home with our babies. It was when our first daughter was born in 2000 that I stumbled into the world of scrapbooking as I really wanted to start documenting her life. Since then there have been hundreds of scrapbook pages and many mini albums documenting our family stories.
In 2006, I started Scrapbook Circle, a monthly kit club, so that I could hopefully teach and inspire others while offering carefully created scrapbook kits each month. What a wonderful experience it is to work in the fabulous memory keeping industry with such talented and kind people. Scrapbook Circle continues to be one of my favorite things.
In the past few years, my passion for teaching and scrapbooking have combined and I have been able to teach several online classes and there are more in my near future plans. Working with Craftsy and Scrapbook.com to produce online classes have been wonderful experience. You can check out my Classes I Teach page for my info on my classes.
I've had my work published in Creating Keepsakes.com, Simply Handmade, Cards and Scrapbook Trends and Scrapbooking Blueprints Magazines. I've also served on design teams for Elle's Studio, Glitz Design and Fancy Pants.
