Paper Crafts Magazine recently announced that editor-in-chief Stacy Croninger has stepped down from that role to pursue a career with CK Media’s events team. After four plus years at the helm of Paper Crafts, she will move into her new role as Senior Events Manager of the Creating Keepsakes Conventions.
Under Croninger's leadership, Paper Crafts magazine has grown to be the leading publication dedicated to paper crafting in the industry. Croninger has represented Paper Crafts in the media, at CK Media events, at various paper crafting celebrations overseas, and on the ever-popular QVC. The consummate paper crafting enthusiast, Croninger has brought to the magazine a love for the craft, a professional dedication to spreading the word, and a keen understanding of the hobby.
PaperCrafts also announced that Jennifer Schaerer will assume the role of editor-in-chief for the magazine. Schaerer has a diverse background in journalism and publishing, combined with experience in marketing including consumer research, design development and execution, product management, and branding.
Schaerer is a "self-confessed paper fanatic who admits that there were a few years in her life in which she dictated that Christmas gifts be wrapped in a certain color scheme". She proclaims a passion for stationery and paper crafted home décor. Her most memorable paper crafted project is a huge 4’ x 6’ corkboard that she made when she was 16, demonstrating that she has found a creative outlet in paper crafting starting at a young age.
