Our Design Team



I am proud to introduce to you the wonderfully talented 
Ginger Snap Scraps Design Team!


Cori Wagner


Hi everyone! I am Cori, owner of Ginger Snap Scraps. I am so excited to share with you all of these amazing women on our design team! I am a stay at home mom to Owen, who is 19 months old and the center of my world! He is the ginger in Ginger Snap Scraps-my little red head!  I have been crafting since I was a young girl.  I started scrapbooking at the age of 12 when I went to a Creative Memories workshop with my mom- and I've never looked back since!  I love making scrapbooks for my family to enjoy and make cards and other projects with my Cricut.  I hope you find much inspiration from all of the projects we will be sharing with you starting on May 1st!

I'm 29 and I live in the small state of Delaware. I'm happily engaged to my best friend who supports me on my crazy crafty adventures. I feel like I've been crafting my entire life in some way shape or form. I've been totally crafty for about 11 years now with a more recent focus on paper crafting. I love clean and simple but I've been known to glam it up. I love making cards, stamping, altering, making anything party related. I'm a kraft cardstock nut and I love faux stitching. I don't have a particular style. It has yet to present itself. If I want to craft it, I'm going to. When I'm not crafting I like to spend time with family and friends, dance, read, travel, cook, bake, ski, surf and play and watch sports.



Ann Bacon


I am a wife of 25 years and a mother to two children.  Since my children are pretty much grown up, I have a little more time to myself.  By day, I work as a Literacy Specialist in an elementary school of over 850 students and 30+ teachers.  My days are never boring!  When I'm not working, I spend my time paper-crafting (of course), reading, gardening, and digging through estate/yard sales, thrift stores, and antique shops.  This gives me the opportunity to refinish and/or re-purpose the treasures that I find.  I am also an avid shopper and love it when I find a great deal.  I am very excited about being a part of the first Design Team for Ginger Snap Scraps and I hope you'll stop by my blog to see my latest creations and projects!

Jessica Esch




My name is Jessica Esch and I am a stay at home mom to two wonderful and very active boys. Between swimming, basketball, soccer and baseball I hope to share with all of you my new found love of scrap booking, stamping and card making. Since beginning my crafting journey when I received my baby bug for Christmas in 2010 and starting up Chick-n-Scrap, my blog, I have up upgraded to the Expression and now I am an die hard Cameo user. I love sharing my work, meeting new bloggers who share the same passion as I do and trying new things, all with paper. I hope you will not only be inspired by my projects but share all things paper with me while promoting a great new store~ Ginger Snap Scraps and all their wonderful products!!



Sarah Vait-Melby




Hello! My name is Sarah and I LOVE crafting. I dabbled with paper crafts a long time ago-- my sister actually used to rubber stamp when she was in Jr. High and High School and I made fun of her :)  Then it wasn't until about 7 or 8 years ago I attended my first in home stamping party that I really loved what I saw, but never thought I could "do that."  I would say the last 4 years have been when I have really bloomed in my crafting.  It's my relaxation and my creative outlet! 

I love to make cards!  I also will occasionally alter projects as well--it really depends on my mood.  I've tried to scrap book but I just can't seem to fall in love with it like I do when making cards or altered projects.  I am however, beginning to realize I need to alter more projects versus just buying the items to alter... just don't remind my husband about my composition notebooks please :)  I also find that I love punny stamps--love em all!  I simply can't say no to a good pun!

In my spare time I love spending time with my family and friends.  I work full-time at a University and that keeps me super busy!  So when I'm not working I love going to baseballs games (Go Twins) and I love going to college hockey games (Go Sioux) with my husband.  I also enjoy sitting back and sipping on a delicious bubble tea with my bestie!


Hi everyone! My name is Patricia Carrillo and I am from Southern California. I have been married to my wonderful husband of 6 years but have been together for 15 years. I also have 2 cats named Jack & Destiny. I currently work as a Kindergarten Instructional Aide and also work as a Substitute Teacher. In my spare time, I love to go shopping, travel to new places, and meeting new Blogger Friends.

I have been crafting for about two years now. It all begin when a group of friends of mine invited me to Scrapbook nights. That is when I was introduced to this little machine called the Cricut. When I took that first piece of card stock over to the machine to cut an image, I was hooked. That is when I asked my wonderful husband to purchase my first Cricut machine. After making layouts, I also started on wanting to create my own Handmade Cards. Over Christmas Break which was two years ago, I wanted to turn our home office into a Craft Room. Of course I left a small space for my husband to do his Ebay stuff. I love my craft room because it serves as a place to become inspired and create. I do have to give a big thanks to my husband for supporting my love for Crafting. 

Therefore, I am super excited to be on the Ginger Snap Scraps Design Team and be able to work with such a talented group of ladies. I look forward to showcasing some amazing projects with the products from the Ginger Snap Scrap Online Store.

Janea Pilgrim



Hi everyone, my name is Janea.  I live in rural Kiefer, OK with my wonderful husband of 28 years and two of my grown or almost grown children.  The oldest has already flown the coup. They are all so supportive of my creative hobby. I still work full time, but I look forward to an early retirement soon...hopefully.  At this time I teach card, canvas and Cricut classes at two local scrapbook stores. I have met the most amazing and creative women on this papercrafting journey and it just gets better all the time.

I'm from Hawaii originally, but now reside in coastal NC with my former Marine husband. I am a student pursing my degree in social work. I've been paper crafting for three years and I'm learning more and more every day!


Barb Orvis


I am a full time corporate meeting planner and have been crafting for a very long time. I remember crafting with my mom after dinner on winter evenings. I enjoy traveling, cooking, exchanging recipes, quilting, and specially paper crafting, whether it be scrapbooking or card making. 
I am a Creative Memories consultant, mainly to support my scrappy habit. My favorite tool is my Cricut. I have to thank my husband who gave me my first Cricut a few years ago. I was skeptical at first, but now, can’t live without it. I enjoy hosting themed scrapbook retreat weekends for friends and family where I 
can share ideas and creative tips that I have learned or discovered from all the fantastic bloggers in cyber space. Since starting my blog a little over a year ago, I find that I am now making more and more cards. I still enjoy working on my scrapbooks of family trips and in the last couple years am doing more and more stamping, although, I still have lots to learn. Finally, I find it very rewarding and relaxing to create something special from a few pieces of paper, a splash of glue, and a spot of ink.
