Hi ! I'm Susie

My name is Susie Cannon Moore and I am a brand new member of the design team. I started scrapbooking just like everyone else with decorative scissors, a circle template and a paper cutter that didn’t cut straight. Throw in a few die cuts, patterned papers and stickers – that was the genesis of my scrapbooks.

Ten years later, I have discovered my scrapbooking style, which is linear and clean. My pages reflect that. BUT, my passion for mini books and card making knows no bounds. I approach any non-page project with an eye for the shabby chic, eclectic or just plain “out there”. If I can sand it, I will. Throw in a flower and some ribbon…. I’m in heaven.

I work full time for CBS Radio in Dallas. Scrapbooking, creating projects and teaching scrapbook classes are fun sidelines for me. I have even been on national TV teaching 2 scrapbooking segments on HGTV’s Crafters Coast to Coast.

I am just now discovering the world of digital scrapbooking and have been doing some hybrid scrapbooking. My latest passion is learning Adobe Photoshop Elements. I love a new challenge almost as much as I love a new scrapbooking tool.

My husband Randall & I have 5 grown children, a host of in-law children and 2 sweet grandchildren. We have ordered more grandchildren, but none are presently on the way. We reside in Dallas, and will go on a cruise at the drop of an invitation! Randall is my biggest scrapbook supporter.
We own a scrapbooking retreat in Maypearl, TX. God has richly blessed this project at every turn. Stolen Moments Inn is my passion and my husband's hobby (if you call maintenance a hobby). You can look at our website here. We happily house 6-12 ladies each weekend. LOTS of scrapbooking gets done and I suspect lots of laughter and fun as well.

My motto? “A day without scrapbooking? Not if I can help it.” So, here are a couple of my newest and/or favorite projects. The first is a quick and easy baby book I put together in one evening. I used Tres Jolies papers, and an Art Blanche calendar set for the covers and a few embellishments I had on hand. The second is a recipe clipboard that I did for a charity auction, and I just love how it turned out. My favorite part is the word "KISS" that I cut using my Wishblade.

I can't wait to meet you and hope we will have many happy days of scrapbooking together.

Congratulations! They picked the best there is; you have always been my inspiration (and source of scraplifting!)
