Jen Chapin

Jen lives in Iowa with her husband, Adam, and two kids, Keira and Connor. By day she's a registered nurse, but on weekends and after her kids are in bed, you'll find her in her scrap room! She's been scrapbooking since 2006, and couldn't imagine her life without this hobby. In her spare time, she likes listening to audio books and podcasts, cooking and trying new recipes, and practicing photography.

Marcy Penner

Marcy is a self-proclaimed “simple girl,” living in the country with her high school sweetheart and their three kids. On any given day, you can find her decorating her farmhouse, planning her next farm project (hello, chickens), homeschooling two of her three kiddos, putting together her dream planner or designing products for Studio Calico. She's a believer in writing things down and documenting every moment - no matter how mundane it may seem.
