What a great, international group! I'm Alison, the trailing spouse of a US diplomat. I'm currently living in Vienna, Austria, with my husband and two little girls, ages almost 2 and almost 4. Since I had to leave my last job when we moved abroad, I've been working on my photography and digital design skills. I love the colors and designs here -- they're just lovely. I can't wait to start contributing!
Welcome Alison! I even have a Vienna Bundle. Great city!
I'm Maggie. Retired and living on the South Coast of England. My hobbies keep me busy; cards, scrapbooks (digital and manual), jewellery making and crochet. I've been playing at learning to paint. And now I've found BlogTrains and Pixelscrapper

Hi my name is Janae. I live in paradise in New Zealand. A small seaside town in a huge mountain range. I am here recooperating after illness and working part time to get by. I was head of graphic design for a company that makes billboards for real estate agents in Auckland city. I was thrown in the deep end and had to learn the whole industry from the ground up suddenly and teach myself everything they do to layout the billboard designs! WOAH! I didn't even know how to turn on a computer! So anyways now I am here! My attempts at making real scrapbooks were sad to say the least! Lots of work that would end up like a childs first art attempt. So sad for me because I love seeing beautiful pages and couldn't produce them. I learned how to do parchment craft ...called pergamano which I do love to do, but was still soooo taken by scrapbooking. I found digital scrapping online all over the place and became enchanted with it ...not that I have done many layouts in fact I prefer just playing around and trying to create elements or using templates to see what I can do with them! lol I love taking pictures of gorgeous flowers and seeing what I can do to make them into lovely elements. I am not a great photographer my any means and have no clue as to what I am doing, nor do I want to learn (memory problems lol) but every one in a thousand yields a gem i can use which is nice. Digital cameras are awesome and a great money saver if you take hundreds of photos! Well thats about it from me or this will be a book! Oh except that apparantly I am a bit of a poet! But thats another story
Hi I'm Angela....I've been playing at digital scrapbooking for about a year...but wish there were more hours in the day to do it. I live in Australia right on the beach so I get distracted by lazing around at the beach with coffee in my spare time. I like that my scrapbooking is within my computer, and that I don't have a million different pieces to get out and put away. My goal by the end of this year is to have printed a nice coffee table book. What else takes up my time...cooking, (look out I applied for masterchef new season), my animals, 2 dogs, 2 cats, 8 chickens and 2 ducks, and my organic vegetable garden. For the last few years I've been on and off unwell and am at my best I have been for quite sometime. I've been learning (well trying to learn) how to start from scratch with my scrapbooking and definately want to learn more. Anyway, that's me, thanks for reading.
Hi everyone. My name is Julie and I live in Montana USA. I have been a digital scrapbooker for about 6 years, but just the last week of September 2013, I discovered you fabulous Web site! I am a freelance editor/writer/photographer who is self-taught in graphic design, so needless to say I have so much more to learn. I very much prefer digital over traditional scrapbooking, and I hope to hone my skills enough to be able to contribute on a regular basis with good enough content that you all want to download it! I am putting together a website of my work (WordCritterCreative.com) and hope to offer digital designs at some point down the road...What a great community and fun way to promote the creative process of digital design! Thank you Marisa!
Welcome! Thanks for sharing a bit about yourselves. Have fun, there are lots of exciting things happening on Pixel Scrapper this month
I digi scrap now, because I couldn't traditionally scrap anymore . I live with several ailments (I won't bore you with the list of ailments) and intense pain from the spinal/neck injuries sustain in a nasty car accident 15 yrs ago when I was 30. I found this site thought the scrappin' grapevine. I'm going to have a look around. Thank you!
Hi. My name is Shari and I live in the Santa Cruz Mountains in California, close to the beach but up in the trees. I work in the office at a high school with never a dull moment. I've been playing with graphics on my computer for many years, since I first discovered Paint Shop Pro and the technique of tubing. Did that for a long time, but then my first grandson came along and I decided I wanted to make a scrapbook of his first year. I took some paper scrapbooking classes online and achieved my goal. That then led to creating cards. I've always loved trying online tutorials and classes and ended up taking some Hybrid Scrapbooking classes at JessicaSprague.com and loved that I could print out my own embellishments and papers to use on pages and cards. In an effort to convert to Photoshop I decided to take her beginning digital scrapbooking class and now I'm hooked. I stumbled on to Pixel Scrapper last weekend and this seems like a wonderful place. What really intrigues me is the idea that, gee, can I make my own papers and embellishments? I'm looking forward to exploring that and checking out the tutorials. Thank you for having me here.
Welcome Shari, Blue Cat and Scarlet!
Welcome everyone! So many new faces! It's fun to have you all here.
Hello, my name is Lisa and I'm from northern California. I've been doing paper scrap booking for about 10 years now and just recently started to do digital, but i already love it.

Welcome to the new members:
i guarantee that you guys are going to enjoy your time here..
My name is Barbara, and I live in Poland, Europe.
I am a bit shy to introduce myself, because I am so new for scrapbooking...
But I love all paper stuff, I love to paint, I love to make cards, bookmarks, and I have just discovered digitals designs.
I have no idea how to use Photoshop etc.., so I will just admire your works, and maybe I will learn something someday....
Welcome everyone! I like your name Shari [my nickname is Shari]
Love this site for all the great resources and tips that help me digi-scrap all the photos I'm taken.
Photography, digital scrapbooking, cooking, reading, animal rescue, and trips with my dear husband keep me busy now that my two kids are 16 and 19 years old and entertain themselves (work, friends, and not wanting to go on trips with us...LOL).
I've lived in western Oklahoma all my life and love to travel every chance I get.

Hello everyone! My name is Tanya and I living in Southern Minnesota. I am going to be 42 at the end of this month - how did that happen? I am mom to two awesome young men. Joseph is 21, is in the Air Force and is in North Carolina and Blake is 20, lives near Des Moines, IA and just got his first adult job out of college as a welder. My husband and I are empty nesters, so navigating through that I am a graphic designer and own my own screen print, embroidery and graphic design business. I also dabble in photography. Most recently, I have started decorating items with dye sublimation which is a ton of fun!
Hello everybody, I'm Sandy ..Swéswé in the world of scrap ..I'm 34 years old, I've got 1 man, 3 children, 1 cat and 2 rats !
I started scrappe in 2008 but in 2011 i stopped it, and now I would like to do it ... My passions aside from scrap are reading (Franck Thilliez, Nicci French and a lot of others ) and sewing ...Sorry for my english

Hi, everyone! I'm Amy from Texas. I have been scrapbooking for years, but I'm just recently getting into digital scrapbooking. I love it! I scrapbook for my daughters (Savannah - 17 and Macy - 5).
Hi Marissa - I'm Gillian & I live in London. I came across Pixel Scrapper only a couple of days ago & it was a complete breath of fresh air I love the way it works - so friendly. I have always been into crafting in one form or another right from an early age, so I dip in and out of different projects all the time. I am drawn towards anything to do with the sea & the beach - guess that what comes from sailing boats for 15 yrs .
Anyhooo, I work as a Media Resources Officer in a 6th Form College (students aged from 16-19) and have been here for years - I love my job. I get to do all kinds of creative stuff from designing to photography to repairing equipment, there's never a dull moment. I just wish that there was more time for me do do my own stuff - I have a table of art projects half finished and a mac ext HD with loads of nearly finished digi projects. I mainly use in-design & dabble in Photoshop then use distress inks & stamps. At the moment I am seriously thinking of doing project life for if nothing much happens in the week it will least ensure that I actually finish some small pieces of art work in whatever way I feel like for that week. Keep up the great work you are doing.
Kind Regards - Gillian
Welcome ladies! Glad you stopped by! Now come have fun with us
@Sandy: Does your cat don´t eat your rats? I´m a cat lady myself (I have 5 rescued adult cats) and can´t imagine having little animas at home...
@Lorien:No, my little Leon wanted to play at first, but now it is next to the cage and looks .. But I put more against the cage in the dining room, you never know..
