Kourtney Osborn-Vallee has been a crafter ever since she was old enough to hold an art supply in her hand. She loves to design and share her passion of crafting and creating with others, so she opened and manages her own retail Scrapbook/Craft store Since 2005 in Harrisonville, MO. Kourtney feels that if you can dream it, then you can create it and wants to inspire others to do the same. She loves to teach others techniques though Mixed Media classes and Art Journaling and focuses heavily on teaching new techniques and products. Her classes promote just having fun, playing and getting the attendees to get out of their comfort zone, get their hands dirty and try something new. Kourtney was very fortunate to attend and graduate the last Ranger U program in 2013.
