It is time to learn a bit about the rest of our guest designers this month at ScrapMatters. Today the spotlight is on Traci Reed and JM Designs.
I love how Jana answered the questions as if she was actually talking with me!
“I am Jana aka JM Designs. I´m 32 (omg, 33 in a bit!), a SAHM of 3 crazy boys and married to my hubby since 2006. We live together in a small town in the north of Germany. I started scrapbooking in 2002 and I fell in love right away. The designer thing started in 2004, I think, wow, that´s 9 yrs now! I’ve had some ups and downs and took a long break in 2011. I couldn´t stay away so I started again
I work with PS CS2 and Photoimpact. My inspirations are everything I see and paper scrapbooking things. My style is… I don´t know?! Fun and usable for all kind of things. I love what I do even when it´s hard to keep everything rolling
Thanks for having me for the month of March.”

Traci Reed Designs
Traci’s designs don’t need an introduction but it was so nice to get to know a little bit about her while she is guesting with us.
“My name is Traci Reed and I’ve made it my life’s mission to help inspire as many lovingly-crafted, story-rich scrapbook pages as I can. I want my designs to be the springboard to beautiful scrapbook pages that capture all the emotion, details and love you put into your pages.
A little about me, I’m a wife, mother, maid, chef, chauffeur, entrepreneur and artist. My husband Patrick and I live in sunny Northern California with our three boys Karsten, Josiah and Finn. We have 1 rescued mini pincher/terrier mix puppy named Abby and that’s about all I can handle! Between taking the boys to school, karate and all the other extracurriculars, I somehow find time to come up with new digital scrapbooking product each week. When I’m not working, I love to craft, read, cook, knit or crochet, or just pass out in a heap of exhausted mommy on the couch!
I started designing at the end of 2004 when I was a young stay at home mom and we couldn’t make ends meet. I’d had a bit of photoshop training in high school so I dove in with both feet and never looked back. That makes 8 years now that I’ve been a scrapbook designer and I’ve never looked back! I like to think of myself as an emotional designer. I love to use color and words to convey emotions in my kits and have really pulled away from the more themey-inspired kits in recent years. I’m highly inspired by both Art Journaling and Project Life recently and you’ll see a lot of that influence in my designs.”
Thanks for letting us get to know you, Traci! You can find Traci’s guest shop here.
