Our CT family is growing!

We couldn't be more thrilled to introduce you to not one, not two, not three, but FOUR new talented ladies that are joining our design team.  We know you will love them as much as we do.  

First up, we have Melanie Blackburn.  Her gorgeous work caught our eye and we are so excited to have her join our team.  Here's a little bit about Melanie, make sure you check our her blog to see her work. 


Hello everyone! I’m Melanie Blackburn and I’m so very excited to be part of the Chic Tags DT! A little bit about me, I’m a mom to 3 beautiful girls, they are my inspiration and the reason why I took up scrapbooking. I started crafting when my oldest was born, 8 years ago and I’m so very grateful for discovering this hobby. Along the way I’ve met some amazing people, who I now call friends, I’ve also had various opportunities which have helped me become the scrapbooker / crafter that I am today. I love to play with paper, it satisfies two needs; one of which is to preserve memories for my family, the other is to do something crafty. I've always loved paper products, as a young girl I would love to browse the aisles of the local paper crafting store, I had a wide assortment of notebooks, pretty pens and stickers. This love of paper has now taken the form of scrapbooking. I describe my style as "eclectic", I love to mix patterns, embellishments, and include fun accents on my layouts. I love to add lots of layers and techniques to my projects, sewing on a layout is also a must for me. I’m so very happy to be here and part of this amazing group of ladies. Thank you Veronica!!!

Next up, we are thrilled to be welcoming the talented Ashley Horton to our team.  She will be inspiring you not only with her amazing projects, but also with her amazing sketches, just wait until you see them!  Here is a bit about Ashley, and make sure to stop by her blog to see her gorgeous work.


My name is Ashley Horton and I live in the Southern US, with my husband Tyler and our three kids ages 7, 5, and 4.  I've been Scrapbooking for over 7 years, and I love documenting the antics of my children on my layouts.  I have had the privilege of serving on several Design Teams over the years and I am beyond excited to be a part of the Chic Tags Team.  I have been published in Creating Keepsakes magazine, Scrapbook Trends Magazine, Life.Paper.Scrapbook magazine, and Scrapbook News & Review magazine.  I describe my style, as Cutesy Eclectic and I enjoy using a mix of products and techniques on my layouts.  Other than Scrapbooking, I enjoy cooking, reading, spending time with family, and watching movies with my hubby.

The next designer I'd like to introduce you to is Aimee Maddern.  We are so happy to add her talent and super personality to the Chic Tags DT!  Make sure to stop by Aimee's blog to see her work.


I’m Aimee a past owner of a scrapbook boutique who has a passion for paper & has way too much of it! I’m a so Cal native who loves the sun, lattes, shopping, my boyfriend and 2 dogs. I work from home, which allows me to travel with my parents and their racecar. And while doing all of the above I end up collecting bits & pieces along the way.

And last, but certainly not least, we are so happy to have Jennifer Haggerty joining our team.  We are looking forward to seeing her amazing work with the tags! Check out her blog for some inspiration, and here's a bit about Jen.



Hello! I'm Jennifer Haggerty and I'm very excited to be a part of the Chic Tags team!  I am a mostly stay at home mom of two in Central Illinois where my husband helps to run his family's business.  I also work part time at my LSS as a sales associate, teacher, and design team coordinator. I started scrapbooking about 15 years ago and pretty much haven't stopped.  I love documenting my family's life events and trying new techniques in our industry!

How cool is this??  We are so thrilled to be welcoming these four extremely talented designers to our team, and can't wait to share their work with you.
