One-Line Bio

We are sisters, colleagues, scrapbookers, and friends!


Beth and Susan grew up in Michigan with pretty much the greatest family EVER. Their parents instilled in them a love of family and a close connection with God through their Lutheran upbringing.

English teachers by trade, they have inspired students in Los Angeles, Phoenix, Napoleon (OH), Detroit, Chicago, Las Vegas, and Fort Wayne (IN). They are currently employed by CKMedia in Bluffdale, UT.

Scrapbooking has become an integral part of the Opel sisters' lives. Through their collaborative efforts, they continue to challenge each other and grow in their scrapping styles. Beth was named to the prestigious Creating Keepsakes Hall of Fame in 2005, and both her work and Susan's has appeared in a variety of publications. Both are thrilled to be working in such a creative field!

A passion for travel fuels their wanderlust and fills their digital camera's memory card. They dream of organizing closets, classrooms and craft areas, and they're still searching for the perfect karaoke songs and the men of their dreams!
