About Valerie Ward

Valerie WardMy name is Valerie. I am so excited to be joining the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Design Team! I have been crafting (scrapbooking and cards) basically all my life (yes, I have scrapbooks from my childhood!), but I started my blog up in 2011; it has created a journey I never knew could be so wonderful (I love the design teams, but mostly the people I have met and friends I have made). I have 4 awesome teenagers (a daughter and 3 sons), a fantastic husband (we met in college), and I work in a great dental/orthodontic office in the administrative department. I have a beautiful craft room that I escape into whenever I have a free moment, and I will definitely be using it a lot more now that I’m on this great team! Come visit me at: Val By Design.
