Michelle Abendroth

My name is Michelle, and I live in Memphis, Tennessee with my husband, and our two pets, Luna the dog, and Rocket the cat. Crafting was something that I never really chose. It was handed down to me by generations of women in my family, and I am happy to join them! Paper crafting allows for me to express myself using a medium that is very versatile. I love using stickers and paper crafting to plan my daily life, create keepsakes, and record memories for many years to come. 

My top crafting faves are glitter, pastels, and all things whimsical, and that's why I love The Fairytale Club so much! All of their products are just so cute and have a touch of adorableness that separates them from others. I just can't wait to share my sparkles on these fairytale adventures!


Laura Allen

Hello everyone, I’m Laura Allen, a 26-year-old social worker living in the San Francisco Bay Area.  I have been playing with paper as long as I have been able to hold a pair of scissors, and in my free time you can often find me crafting away in my tiny studio apartment.  I’ve taught bookbinding and scrapbooking to youth of all ages and have seen the power of giving someone the tools to document their own story.   Currently, I am primarily a pocket page scrapbooker, but I’ve never known a papercraft I didn’t like.  I’m thrilled to be joining The Fairytale Club design team!


Dianna deForest

Hi there! My name is Dianna.  I’m a wife to my high schoolsweetheart, and we have two beautiful daughters. I can’t remember a time I wasn’t crafting! Paper crafts are my favorite.  Pretty paper, stickers, and trims make me happy.  I love the beach, and my favorite princess is Ariel.


Carrie Elias

Hi everybody! My name is Carrie Elias, and I am so excited to be on The Fairytale Club's Design Team!!  After having my daughter a couple years ago I took a little break from scrapbooking on a regular basis.  Before that, I had been on a couple local scrapbook design teams in San Diego (Anyone remember The Pink Pineapple or Pink Ninja Addicts?), had a craft blog called Bubblegum Life, and was obsessed with taking photos. Fast forward to now and I am still obsessed with photography but miss scrapbooking as well as the creative process and the finished product.  Andrea and I have actually been friends for a few years now and our mutual love for Disney and scrapbooking means that every time we get to chat or Skype we have a blast!  Now that she has this fantastic kit club with amazing designs and product, I knew this was the time to start scrapbooking again. I feel so lucky to be on the design team of someone that creates art for us to use that is so inspiring.  Not only does using Andrea's product remind me of the strength, struggles and beauty of life but makes me think of Disney and smile :) I'll see you all on Instagram and The Fairytale Club blog soon!  XO Carrie


Solange Ferreira

Hello crafty friends, my name is Solange, and I am a 22 year old paper craft lover. I started crafting in high school, and I have been addicted to it since day one. It has become more than a hobby, it is my passion and my therapy. I fell in love with The Fairytale Club the moment I came across their first kit "Girly and Strong". Every single kit is a magical explosion of beautifully designed pieces with the most amazing color combinations and the prettiest ephemera pieces I ever did see. It is such an honor to be a part of this team, and I can't wait to create with these amazing products.

That's all the member bios for today.  Check back tomorrow to learn about the rest of the design team!
