About Angela Ploegman

Angela PloegmanAngela Ploegman grew up in Canada and moved to Iowa in 1999. She is married and has a 10 year old son and 6 year old daughter. She works full time, and has started a regular exercise program. When time allows, she likes to cook and bake, and photograph her children and/or travels.
Angela creates scrapbook pages that document her family’s daily life and special events. She likes to keep it quick and simple.

Angela has been published in magazines, and on Design Teams. She truly enjoys showing others how attractive crafts don't need to be complicated, time consuming or expensive.
Her go-to adhesive is the E-Z Runner® Permanent Strips Refillable, although she loves Adhesive Sheets and Crafty Power Tape and 3D Designer Shapes and… See what Angela is up to on her blog, Angela Ploegman Designs
