Amy Tangerine

Amy Tangerine!

Born and raised in Chicago, Amy spent much of her childhood wallpapering her bedroom walls with the colorful and glamorous pages of fashion magazines. She learned how to sew her senior year of high school and what developed was her first passion: designing. Within five years, she had become an award-winning designer and founder of the popular handcrafted t-shirt line Amy Tangerine. Her collections were featured in hundreds of retail outlets, including Bloomingdales, Neiman Marcus and Barneys New York, and yielded impressive worldwide sales.

In 2007, her business expanded to include scrapbooking, with her fashion design work now being produced on a custom basis. Her love for sharing her clothing and now also paper crafts has taken her all over the globe and given her the opportunity to teach creative classes all over the world. She also stays busy with creative collaborations ranging from custom scrapbooks to celebrity events to consulting services.

When she’s not at home in Los Angeles, California with two mischievous Jack Russell Terriers, her long-time partner, JC and their adorable son, Jack, she is traveling, finding great places to eat, and doing her best to enjoy every moment. All while Instagrammingeverything along the way. Amy loves salted caramel anything, doggy cuddles, baby giggles, palm trees, riding her beach cruiser, and nachos. Always nachos.

Connie Hanks!

Life continues to take me on an amazing journey. I’m a mommy, wife, photographer, scrapbooker, crafter, volunteer-extraordinaire and child of God who never outgrew seeing the world as colorful as a fresh box of Crayola crayons! I’m blessed to live with my “4-family” in beautiful San Diego, California with my loving husband Steve with whom I fell madly in love with at just 19 years old (many, many moons ago!), and my 7- and 5-year-old daughters that you will see are the stars of most of my photographs and scrapbook pages. I love to dream, travel, play with my daughters, sing while my hubby plays guitar and rarely miss an opportunity to be behind the lens when I’m with family and friends. No matter what title I might bear, or what hat I wear, I am a creative soul to my core. I love writing my memories, my stories to share, pairing them with photos and getting inky, dirty-fingers creating layouts, cards and anything crafty. I am creative. Behind the lens. At my desk. In the kitchen. With my daughters. It all makes me a happy, blessed, grateful wife and mama ❤
