Short bio: Hi! My name is Jennifer Chapin, and I am over the moon excited about the opportunity to guest for American Crafts! I am 29 years old; my husband Adam and I live in Eastern Iowa with our 2 children – Keira (3) and Connor (6 months). During the week I work as a nurse but after the kids are in bed you will probably find me scrapping. I have been scrapbooking since 2006 and have been fortunate to work with a lot of great companies and meet some awesome friends.

How did you get started scrapbooking? I was introduced to paper crafting through a stamping party. I wanted to create thank you notes for my wedding. After I found my local scrapbooking store, it was all over!

What is your favorite American Crafts product? Thickers! That is a given. I have collected over 100 packages through the years πŸ™‚
