Candy Rosenberg


Hi, my name is Candy Rosenberg. I am the proud mother of 3, married for 17 years and live in Southern Oregon. I am a professional paper crafter, I work for Graphic45 and Scrap n' Art Magazine. I am an educator for Tattered Angels, Punky Sprouts and Copic. My passion is to CUT PAPER and teaching others the same, believe me there is more paper so start cutting! I am happily living the "altered" life with mixed media art and paper. You can find me at


Candy made this great 2 page spread using KaiserCraft Hideaway papers and embellishments. The scans do not show all the detailing very well, but many of the flowers were cut out, distressed, and embellished with liquid pearls before being attached to the page. This is a very 3D spread. The chipboard is glittered, there are ribbon embellishments, and the photo panels are layered, allowing for framing and dimension. Brads were used to attach the flowers. If you get a chance, stop in and look at the originals at Peddlers Den, and at the new KaiserCraft papers and embellishments!

Candy made these pages using KaiserCraft Peek-A-Boo papers and embellishments. The page on the left features flower with button centers and fiber ties. The chipboard year is framed by a banner of "flags", brads secure the poem, and the "stitched" borders have been hand drawn on the heart. Most attractive, and impossible to appreciate in the scan, is the pleated paper beneath the poem and flowers. Altogether this is a very upscale, 3D layout suitable for any occasion and those of any age.

The page on the right is for a baby. It, too, features a banner of "flags" with hand drawn stitching borders, and popped up medallions which were cut from the paper. The photo panel is layered, the chipboard is positioned in a non-traditional way, and the elements display perfect balance.

If you get a chance, stop in and look at the originals at Peddlers Den, and at the new KaiserCraft papers and embellishments!

Below is a layout that Candy did for us using papers from Graphic45's Playtime Past collection. Candy provided very detailed scans from multiple view points to help you see the beautiful layers and the way that she used this versatile paper collection. Graphic45 is a company that Peddlers Den found at Summer CHA. It has beautiful papers in both traditional and whimsical themes. Playtime Past is in stock, and has been very popular so far. A visit to Candy's site ( will allow you to view some of her other work, much of which showcases projects featuring other Graphic45 papers.

Lisa McCortney

Hi, my name is Lisa McCortney. I have been married for almost 9 years to quite possibly the most wonderful man alive. I have one beautiful teenage daughter, Brittany, who needless to say keeps me hopping. We live in Oswego and I have been scrapbooking for 7 years now. I was introduced to the wonderful world of scrapbooking by my sister and have been hooked ever since. So hooked, in fact, that in 2005 I started my very own scrapbooking business by opening a local store, Remembrances, then switching to online retail a year later so I could be home more with my family.

My inspiration for scrapbooking comes from my love of creating, my family; past and present and wanting to preserve the memories for my daughter and her children. I have seen what can happen to photos that are not properly preserved and now I'm on a mission to change that. I also love to create albums for people as gifts; especially to see the look on their face when they are not expecting it........priceless! My style of scrapbooking is more traditional but I do on occassion delve into modern technology to create and broaden my crafting horizon. I am all about embellishing and 3 dimension. There is just no replacement for the look and feel of a traditional style scrapbook.

Though I tend to scrapbook at home every chance I get, I enjoy the camaraderie of a crop and the opportunity to steal ideas from my fellow scrapbookers. I believe the friendships formed through this hobby are undoubtedly a bond that is for life. It never ceases to amaze me how wonderful and friendly this group of people are and how lucky I am to be a part of it.

I am so excited to be on Peddler's Den design team and look forward to creating wonderful layouts and crafts for your viewing pleasure. Hopefully my work will inspire you and offer some great ideas for your next project. You can find me at

Lisa made this two page spread for us using the KaiserCraft Hideaway papers and embellishments. Lisa has emphasized the beauty of the paper, and focused on one personal photo which is matted and framed, and embellished with flowers and brads. The partner page also features brade and flowers, and between the two, creates a specific atmosphere.

The first project packet we gave to Lisa included a clear chipboard mini-book by Fancy Pants, Graphic45 papers and a host of embellishments. She made us a very nice mini-book which utilizes many techniques. This has been displayed at Peddlers Den, and some of you have had the privilege of actually handling and viewing it "live". I confess that I am slow getting this up on our website. It turns out it is a bit of a challenge to scan or photograph it adequately. However, here it is!

Front and back cover, clear chipboard book by Fancy Pants, papers by Graphic45, assorted embellishments.

Notice the clear on clear on the right hand page, and the embellishments that Lisa included.

The Fancy Pants mini-book kit includes not only pages, but a wide variety of transparent embellishments, some which are used here.

As you thumb through the book, the transparent feature creates new glimpses of old elements.
