About Margie HiguchiDesign Team Coordinator
Margie enjoys different types and styles of paper crafting from creating scrapbook pages to making cards to dabbling in mix media! She considers herself lucky to have been a product designer for a line of chipboard products, a design team member on many craft manufacturer and scrapbook retailer teams, written articles and published artwork in several online and print magazines in the U.S. and overseas as well as on TV. For many years, she has taught different types of paper crafting classes at home, local scrapbooking stores, consumer shows and retreats…even in Japanese!
Margie loves dimension so no surprise that her “go-to” adhesive is Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® 3D Foam Squares! She uses them in her cards, pages and mixed projects. So when they came out with shapes…”Oh my! The sky’s the limit!”
Residing in the northwestern suburbs of Chicago with her husband and their two boys, they put up with her crazy schedules and supplies of paper crafting! Whatever spare time she has in between, she enjoys reading and traveling. Bring a cup of coffee and visit her at SCRAPS of (my) Life.
