April Foster

At age four, April became an paper crafter  by making and selling handmade greeting cards at her dad's hardware store. They were nothing more than crayon drawings on typing paper, but she loved every second of it. Her love of business and paper goods led her to found Studio Calico in 2007.  She built an infrastructure dedicated to the curation and design of innovative products, combined with inspiration and education, delivered to customers via a monthly subscription. She is the mother of 4 under 5 (Claire, twin boys Cal and Sam, and Kit) who keep her very busy (and very happy). They inspire her to keep finding the time to record her family's memories.

Kelly Noel has been an art lover her entire life. Scrapbooking was a perfect fit for her, and she started recording her memories in 1997, while in college. She found the online scrapbooking community in late 2004 and was totally obsessed from that time on. Kelly lives in Florida with her husband Tom and their three boys (Jackson, Brady & Sawyer), and when she's not at one of her boys' baseball games, she's working with Studio Calico's teachers as the Education Content Coordinator.
