She is now part of that as Style Director and as a Product Designer for Making Memories. Margie started working at her Local Scrapbook Store and from there went to work for Deluxe Designs where she co-authored the book Card Crazy with Katherine Brookes, she also designed her first paper line Margie’s House based on her home and each one of her children.

We have the very talented Amber Packer-
I am the mother of two beautiful boys and wife to my friend. I know everyone says this, but they truly are my joy in life and the reason for everything I do. I am the Design Team Lead as well as the blog and newsletter coordinator for My Mind’s Eye. For the past five years, I have appeared regularly on a regional TV program, ABC 4’s Good Things Utah.I am an independent designer and have had the opportunity to work with some of my favorite manufacturers (and yours).
I also design a monthly kit club called Amber’s Possibilities which can be purchased online through A Page 4 All Seasons (www.apage4allseasons.com).
I began teaching Scrapbooking in October 2003. My start in teaching is a funny story: A friend of mine was retiring from teaching and suggested it was something I might be interested in. I didn’t have any layouts, so I went to my local scrapbook store, bought a bunch of supplies (including shaped scissors) and put together 8 layouts. I brought them in to the store and was hired as a teacher. What an amazing blessing I was given that day! My life has been enriched because of the opportunities I have been given. Scrapbooking is more than a hobby to me, it is a way for me to focus on and count my blessings.
