About Me


My name is Maureen, or Mo for short.  I've been married for 11 years, I have 2 children, and work as a Registered Nurse.  I'm Filipino and the proud daughter of a retired US Navy sailor.  I grew up in Hawaii on the beautiful island of Oahu.  I currently live in Washington State, 30 minutes north of Seattle.  

I've been papercrafting since 2003 and have been privileged to be a member of several challenge blog design teams over the years.  I was also blessed to be a part of the Scrapbook News and Review Magazine and served as a staffer as well as an Instructor at The Art Studio (which offered online papercrafting classes up until early 2014).  I am very thankful for the amazing people I've met and the tremendous personal and creative growth I've experienced! For SNR I've created countless numbers of projects, wrote articles for featured manufacturers and created tutorials for the magazine and the blog.  I also worked on a few manufacturer events at SNR and was privileged to showcase products for EK Success, Tuskineko, Nikki Sivils, Donna Salazar, Lindy's Stamp Gang, My Favorite Things, Cosmo Cricket, Bo Bunny, Scor-Pal, and We are Memory Keepers  to name a few.

I’m primarily a scrapbooker and card maker but I love to throw in something different so you’ll see tags, ATCs, altered art and hybrid creations from me. Just like my personality, I’m always changing and open to new ideas and techniques when it comes to creating. My style is broad ranging from Clean and Simple to paint splattered, layers and embellishment heavy. I love to mix patterns and bright colors and also enjoy combining vintage and modern elements. If I was to define my style, a good description would be soft but edgy.  I am also a digital scrapbooker who loves to knit and crochet and dabbles in sewing.

I create a broad range of videos on my YouTube channel to share.  I focus a lot on using up what you have to create backgrounds and embellishments.  You can create beautiful works of art without having to buy lots of patterned papers and embellishments.  I hope to see you around.  I'd love to hear from you!
