ON WITH THE SHOW (in NO particular order):

 Hi, My name is  Adora Concepcion.
 I am so excited and thrilled to be a part of the Quick Quotes Design Team.
I have been scrapbooking for more than ten years now,  and I know this is something that  I will be doing  for a long  time. I love scrapbooking. J
I love the creative way of preserving memories of the big and the small events in life.   While I  enjoy the fun of putting together a project, I also take it seriously. I put my mind and my heart in everything I create. I consider my work as eclectic and a little bit on the clean/simple side with a twist. I also love
photography which comes hand in hand with scrapbooking. Most importantly I have 3 kids and a grandson. I've been married for 30 years and counting, to the love of life my husband, Chris. Besides being a mom, a grandma, a wife and a scrapbooker, I'm also a bookkeeper during daytime.

Thanks ,

Hi, my name is Theresa Kelly. I live in Kentucky, moved here from Las Vegas, I know, what a culture shock! I live out in the Country, I’m married to my Best Friend and I have 3 children, 30, 27, and 10 (he keeps me on my toes, lol) I also have 3 grandkids, 7, 5, and 2, they are still in Las Vegas so I still get to visit. I started scrappin when my youngest was born and haven’t looked back. I love to paint, sew, garden and will try any kind of craft and add it to my projects whenever I can. I love my Cricut and use it at least a couple of times week and look forward to adding it to my Quick Quotes design projects. I love to go to auctions, antique stores, flea markets and can’t drive by a yard sale without stopping and I usually find a treasure to alter and turn into something new. I am so excited to be on the Quick Quotes Design Team and looking forward to working with the all the wonderful gals and hopefully I can inspire you to grab some Quick Quotes products and Make a Memory!

 I have been scrapping for 14 years now. My favorite subject to scrapbook is my family. I have been married to my best friend, Don, for 13 years. We have a 8-year-old daughter named Sydnee and a 4-year-old daughter, Shay. We reside in the wonderful state of Ohio. Of course I scrap the "big" moments, but I mainly just scrap those special everyday moments. My family is the main reason I scrap, and they are the primary subjects of my layouts. I also have a Book of Me album, a garden album, and a recipe album that I like to work in.
I am super excited to be working with the fabulous products of Quick Quotes!!!!

My name is Donna, and I am so excited and proud to be a member of the Quick Quotes Design Team. I am a mother of 5 children and 2 beautiful granddaughters. I’ve been scrapbooking since 2002 and not once have I looked back. I love how it brings out the creative side of me, which is a huge break from my daily job of being an accountant for a bank. My very supportive husband and I live in a suburb of Reading, PA and we love to travel especially to the beach and Disney and almost every Saturday night is game night at our house for my family. 

 Hi crafter's! I'm Melin Beltran and I live in Central Florida. My husband and I have three kids, two still at home. Two dogs and one sweet little grandson. I have been scrapbooking for several years. Scrapbooking/paper crafting is such a wonderful way to express yourself and at the same time leave a legacy for your family. My favorite form of paper crafting is paper piecing. I have taught classes at my local scrapbook stores and to different groups and organizations for several years.  I love to share my passion for paper crafting with others. If I am not teaching a class, I am creating and cutting for the next.  I am so grateful for the opportunity to be on the Quick Quotes Inaugural Design team. My favorite expression is: “Creativity is God’s Gift To You, What You Do With It, Is Your Gift To Him”. I hope my projects will ignite and inspire your passion for scrapbooking and paper crafting.

 Hi there!  My name is Rhonda Van Ginkel and I live in the Twin Cities, Minnesota.  I am blessed to be a loving wife to my husband Chuck, and a mom to my two beautiful toddler boys, 3.5 years and 2 years.  I began this wonderful journey called scrapbooking in April of 2009.  I have always been an artistic person, drawing, painting, loving photography, sewing, writing and basically anything that is hands on.
I feel that I'm always learning, growing and evolving as a designer. By nature, I'm a very friendly, positive and social gal who loves to not only to inspire others, but to be inspired too. Fortunately, my boys, Chuck and our little dogs are a constant source of fun photos and inspiration 24/7! 
What's my style?  I would say it is evolving, but classic with a bit of a twist.  I feel right now that I'm still growing as an artist and just am enjoying the creative journey!  I love grunge, vintage and distress, but I also enjoy the funky fresh, quirky and unexpected.  I adore anything that embraces imperfection and creates comfortable whimsy. 


Hi there!  My name is Jennifer Sodowsky (Jen for short) and I live in Ponca City, Oklahoma with my hubby and 3 awesome kids!  I work full time as well as teach scrapbook classes locally.  I live a VERY busy life, so when I’m not working or taxiing my kids around, I spend my time creating scrapbook layouts, cards, designing my next class, or doing SOMETHING paper crafty!  I mostly scrap 12x12 double page layouts, mainly because I like my pages to match when I open up my scrapbooks and also due to the fact that I take a LOT of photos and need a place to put them!
I am proud to be a part of the Quick Quotes family.  I have been an avid fan of their products since I discovered their company at a scrapbook convention over 3 years ago.  The QQ paper is amazing and I can’t say enough good things about the Quick Quotes staff..they are also simply amazing.  I am thrilled to join the design team and make my contributions in support of this unique and remarkable company!  I am always inspired by the incredible work and talent of others and it is my hope that I will inspire others with my work as well.

Lisa Giesbrecht is an alumni, having taught and designed for Quick Quotes since 2009!  You may recognize her if you've attended a Private Reserve or other Expo/convention.  She is SUPER talented (As you'll notice in her project) and mother of 2 sweet little boys (1 of them is BRAND NEW).  She is, in fact, teaching with QQ at the very second I type this!  Happily married, she resides in Southern California.  She has a great store stash built at home and she's a girl after my own heart with her favorite color as PINK!  Her favorite QQ product is our SIGNATURE CHALK INKS followed closely by, "The quality of the papers and embellishments.  Amazing family atmosphere, great classes & designs!"  She looks forward to this design team because it is, "The opportunity to design amongst the best J "   She has just re-designed her blog so be sure to go show your support!
