> Guest DT Girl Gretchen McElveen


Hi! I am Gretchen McElveen. I am so excited to have the opportunity to be Hambly’s guest designer this month! I love Hambly products and I have had so much fun creating these projects with some of the newest releases.
I live in Helena, AL with my husband and our dog. No kids for us yet…but soon! I work full time as a physical therapist in an outpatient clinic but of course I would rather be scrapbooking!
My aunt introduced me to scrapbooking by way of Creative Memories during college but I did not get serious about it until after we got married in 2002. I still have the corner rounder that I bought during my first CM party!! Scrapbooking is such an incredible hobby! It is my creative outlet and a way to express emotions and feelings I often have difficulty saying. It is my way of documenting life and the special people who are such a big part of it. I cannot think of a much better way of spending my time!
I have the privilege to design for Junkitz, Scrap In Style TV, Create My Keepsake, and Scrap Etc. You may have seen some of my work in Memory Makers Magazine, Simple Scrapbooks, Scrapbook Trends, and a few idea books. And I hope to be able to inspire you a little with the projects I have done for Hambly this month!
