Short bio: Hello! I'm Sarah Hill and have been scrapbooking for about 12 years. My craftiness started when I decorated my notebooks in high school with magazine cutouts. I then went to a local craft store to make an entire sketchbook with magazine cutouts and pictures of me and my friend. I had no idea how that one trip would spiral me into the depths of the scrapbook industry! In the past two years I have started my own kit club The Paper Bakery, been published many times, been on many design teams, and I just keep learning more and more! I am getting more into projects and mixed media nowadays. I just love how the scrapbook industry keeps evolving with more fun goodies to play with!

What is your favorite American Crafts product? That is easy… THICKERS! I am a Thickers nut! And I love how American Crafts keeps developing new and fun designs.
