About Me

Hi, I'm Anita Scroggins and I am an Educator, Digital Content Creator, Girl Scout Volunteer, gardener, and a really great cook! My scrapbooking, home-decor, paper crafts and up-cycled projects have been featured in magazines, at events, trade shows, online, and on TV. You can also find me on Pinterest and Instagram. I am an experienced media spokesperson, educator, project and product designer, and demo person. My style is diverse and ever evolving, but one thing never changes; less is less and MORE IS BEST! 

I am available for design work, product reviews, product consulting, media campaigns, and trade show work. Please contact me for rates.

My experience in the great world of Scrapbooking:

Educator: I have designed, produced, and taught classes on a wide variety of subjects and mediums. I currently teach upwards of 50 classes a year in the North Texas are on using the Silhouette Software. I am available for individual and small group classes, as well as large scale trade show classes. 

Trade shows: I am an amazing demo person! I have had the privilege of working for multiple manufactures at numerous trade shows over the last few year.
Crafty Scrapper-I am the Design Team/Social Media Coordinator and am privileged to work with a great group of ladies. I currently design as well as teach classes for what I think is the best scrapbook store in North Texas! My classes are mainly mini-albums, focusing on a variety of binding techniques. I am also the co-creator of the fabulous new Lunch Box Kits; a new line of designer layout kits available in store and online each month.

JoAnn Inc - 2006-2011: Scrapbook department manager for the company's largest retail store/ Taught all papercrafting/scrapbook related classes in home store/ Created scrapbook classes that were introduced chain wide/ Created the Crop Program for the National Chain: Maintained the highest volume in class attendance company wide for eighteen months/ Promoted to Operations Manager

Make-n-Take /Demo Program: while at JoAnn Inc I was also responsible for our In Store Make-n-Take/Demo Program. This included: promoting the program/ product management/schedule management/Team Member training/ Follow-up data to the product manufacturer

Custom Work: for many years I created premade items and sold them on Ebay and Etsy. I also sold my wares at a variety of fairs here in North Texas. I created lots of custom albums for very satisfied customers, on an individual basis.

Published: I have been published in a few places, which is always a lot of fun! 
Nothing like seeing your project in print. I have also had numerous projects on display at trade shows. That is such a great feeling to walk down the aisle and see your work sitting there on the shelf.

I am currently enjoying my new found  freedom of being home in my studio full time again! Thank you DH for your understanding!! I create albums on commission occasionally, but these days I scrapbook mainly for me - and my enjoyment of my art. 
I would love to hear from you some time! You can reach me by email at gslmarvin@gmail.com , and you can find me on Facebook  and Pinterest,  so stop by sometime and say hi!!
