A big Ally Scraps welcome to Betsy Veldman!

I'm so pleased to introduce a brand new guest designer to the Ally Scraps family. Here she is, Betsy Veldman!

Betsy is a small town girl who loves to paper craft. She has a history of design education and has always had a job doing something creative. From home decor to floral designer, she is now happy to be home with her children, doing what she enjoys most -paper crafting. Patterned paper and stamps are her two biggest paper crafting loves. She is a Go-to Gal for Paper Crafts magazine and is on the Papertrey Ink design team. When she's not playing with her paper and stamps or teaching classes at her local scrapbook store, she enjoys spending time with her husband and three children. As a family they love to ride bikes, play at the park, go geocaching and eat out whenever possible (less time cooking - more time paper crafting!) Betsy and her family live in a small town in Northwest Iowa. Welcome Betsy, let's enjoy her first project!!
