Meet the Paper Secrets Team!


 Kristi Beisel ~ Owner

I am a SAHM married 11 years to my long time best friend with 2 boys, ages 7 & 1. I spend most of my time, pretty much all of my time with them. I also spend several hours a week helping in the classroom or doing PTA work. When I do find free time, I wouldn't want to spend it any other way than scrapbooking. Arts & crafts have been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I love October Afternoon, Crate Paper, My Mind's Eye ribbon, flowers, bling, polka dots, my Dymo label maker, the beach, hoop earrings, a red-teal-golden yellow color combo, flip flops, handbags & sunglasses. I am a total night owl hooked on reality TV.


 Rochelle Spears ~ Design Team Coordinator

Hello! My name is Rochelle Spears. After 15 years of Real Estate, I am currently a SAHM of 5 children (22, 18, 12, 5, and 3) that knows how to pose when they see a camera! :) I am a wife to a wonderful husband who supports my craft to the fullest! I have been scrapbooking for 8 years and I just can't get enough of it! I love product... the smell of new paper... I love seeing the creation in my mind come alive on my paper! I love putting the final touches on my layouts and the biggest love of all... is watching my husband pull out my scrapbooks when guests come over! :) Besides my family and scrapbooking, you will find me traveling, reading or watching Netflix! I love coffee in the morning, Mt. Dew during the day and chocolate at night. This is me, Rochelle. :)


 Nancy Dare ~ Paper Secrets Moderator

Hi I'm Nancy and I live in sunny Southern California. I have one son who is married and has 7yr old twins a boy and girl. I also have several nieces & nephews that end up on my scrapbook layouts. I have been interested in and doing arts & crafts since I can remember.  I always took all the art classes offered in school and studied fashion/textile design and graphic art in college. I've worked as a cake decorator where I use to airbrush pictures and portraits on cakes. I also spent several years as the store artist for Cost Plus. I have been scrapbooking since about 2005 and immediately fell in love with it because it can incorporate many art forms. I really love mixed media art and anything vintage. One of my favorite pastimes is going to Estate sales and finding cool things to use in my art.
