Hi everyone,

I'm Susan. I'm 53, and I'm new to scrapbooking, but not to digital design. That's been one of my hobbies for many years. I especially love vintage Victorian designs, and designs with roses.

I work in tech support, and I live in Michigan. I love books and reading, and classic rock.

This place is a great resource. I'm so glad I found it.

Hi There,

My name is Jacquie, i am 47, mum to a teenager and happily married. I work full time as QA Officer for a company that produces smoked and melt cheeses.

I have been digi-scrapping for many years, used to sell my word-arts too....When my 'home' closed i kind of lost my mojo. I miss that time and am looking for a new home.

Thanks for having me.

So fun to have so many new faces! Thanks for saying hi.

@Maddie: Are you in school for physics? Both my husband and I have undergraduate Physics degrees. Obviously we are putting them to good use here smiley

Hi everyone!

I'm Helene. I'm Brazilian, 32 years, married and no kids, only pet, a beautiful cat called Hugo Boss (yes, like the perfum). I'm an Interior Designer and I do scrapbook since 2008. A few years ago I was working hard and wasn't having much time for scrap. So I started the digital in order to keep my records on.

I'm glad to be here smiley

Hi everyone !

I am Carole. I am French and live in France.I am 52 years old, I have 2 teen age sons. I am working as an export assistant in an Airfreight forwarding company.
I discovered scrapbooking in 2007. Since then , I have created about 100 personal photobooks with my layouts to keep a trace of our family stories.
I love photography, photo editing, photobook making, traveling, cooking, dreaming.
I also organise free lunch-time-one-hour-worshops for my working colleagues so that I can share with them my knowledge about photo composition, editing, photobooks creation.

I am happy to have found this place !

Thanks for saying hello!

@Carole: That's a lot of photo books!!!!

yes that's a lot of photobooks but the number grows very fast

Every year, I have at least
- one year book with everyday life, celebrations, kids school pictures etc
- one book for our traditional one week winter vacation in a ski resort
- two or three books for our summer vacation
- one book for Christmas
- one books for our small trips during Easter time

Furthermore, if I add all the photobooks (heritage books, wedding books, baby's books, recipe's books...) I gave as gifts to my family or friends, in twelve years, I created almost 100 photobooks. For me that's my main hobby with photography and travel ! It is a nice way (but time consuming) to keep trace of our memories

Hi everyone,

I am Deb, a 50+ year old girl from Holywood, Northern Ireland although I currently live in Leicestershire in the UK. I have been married to Jon for 25 years, no kids but we have had 3 very spoiled foster kitties to look after instead smiley We are taking a break from kittie fostering for a wee while to just have some time for us to explore the world a little, well before the pandemic that was the plan, maybe next year! I love listening to music, I am a kinda old Motown and soul listener mostly however I have been known to rock it out to some guitar based indie tunes! smiley I read everyday too.

I am just returning to scrapbooking after a few years away from it because I have been ill. I have chosen to do digital scrapbooking this time around as I have more accessibility to that now than actual paper crafting. I am not really very talkative etc, more of a lurker but I do keep up with what you are all doing smiley Please don't think I am being rude if I don't interact much, I am very socially awkward and find it quite a challenge to communicate with others (even my own Family).

I look forward to seeing what you all make of your pages etc x

Hello all! (Because my golden retriever is much more photogenic than I've ever been, I thought he could represent, lol! )

I was super into digital scrapbooking about 13- 17 years ago. Back in the days of Rakscraps and Shabby Princess etc.. I created some of my own kits back then, did some scrapbooking to represent a designer, etc. However, life got busy and interest faded away.

Now, I am back into paper scrapbooking some, with the purchase of a silhouette 5 years ago, which is something,as I really, really disliked paper scrapbooking as it was beginning its popularity years and years back. Dear goodness, to look back at some of my first paper pages. EEEEEEEK.

With a tad more time on my hands with the pandemic, along with a scramble to represent my senior's life for a *hopeful* eagle scout ceremony and graduation open house (may end up virtual), I stumbled upon your site in search for some templates. Your site is FANTASTIC!! It is great to see how active you are. Up until now, I have been a lurker, gobbling up the freebies. Thank you SO much, by the way!
I am remembering how much I enjoyed digital scrapbooking and absolutely love everything about Photoshop, so even though I printed out my son's life in well over 1000 4x6 photos, I may just have to get back in to the digital fun. (especially as there are exponentially more photos of all of us that sit unseen in computer folders)

(Also, a little about me - in my 50s, 3 children with my youngest being the high school senior, married, work in IT in MI, love to travel, love photography)

Thanks for saying hi! It's a silver lining to see a lot of you getting back into scrapbooking with all the extra time floating around right now.

@Laura: I know what you mean about those early scrapbooks. I've taken most of mine apart and redone them smiley

Hello, my name is Hester. I love all kinds of crafting and find that I will cross-stitch & crochet for a while and then switch to paper crafting. There aren't many crafts that I haven't tried at least once. I also like to make 3D projects and foam flowers. I haven't used digital graphics in a long time, but I found you on Pinterest and I am inspired to start scrapbooking again. I don't have the talent that the designers possess; so, I really appreciate seeing how others have used the elements in the kits. I live in southeast USA. On a personal note, I hope everyone is staying safe. Besides crafting, I am a lover of dogs, fresh warm bread (from the oven), chocolate, Krispy Kreme, vintage/shabby chic anything, and who-done-it mysteries/forensics crime shows.

Hello! I am Kris. I am a mom of 8 and married to my BFF for the last 22 years. I was a digital and paper scrapbook product designer in my past life for several different companies. ( I took time off when one of my sons passed away 3 years ago) I live in Arizona with my family where I am currently an online ESL teacher and run our homestead.

Thanks for saying hi!

@Hester: Are you doing digital or paper scrapbooking? I do both (although my paper scrapbooking is technically hybrid since I mostly print out digital graphics at home).

HI, I am Gill, A visual Artist from New Zealand. I just LOVE computer creating, we have had a computer since 1984, a little Amstrad laptop to be exact! Hubby was in the compouter industry. anyone remember Little Computer Person? smiley we were the only family I knew of by 1991 who had a home network!,
I know NOTHING about scrapbooking! I might create some New Zealand themed items. for now, I will browse the frum and get to know this wonderful site.

Hi everyone,
I am Sarah, a 50+ mother and teaching aide in Worcestershire, UK. My daughter is 21 and is currently trying to do her uni work at home and my son is 15. I have been a teacher previously and I also write freelance articles and web content. I am brand new to scrapbooking and think that I will be working digitally, although I may try some physical stuff too. This is an amazing site - thanks for creating it. See you around x

So fun to have some newbies here! Let us know if you have any questions.

Originally from Missouri, I moved to Texas when my brother invited me to stay with him. Felt at home when I stepped off the plane. Been living in Texas now around 40 years. I'm a photographer, writer, artist, crafter of all kinds of things, ceramics, basket weaving, painting, drawing, sewing. My dad named me Mona Lisa when I was born. He had a sense of humor. I love going to prayer meeting, my absolute favorite thing. The Amplified Bible is my favorite book. I own a lot of prayer books. I seem to collect arts and crafts books, lighthouses and angels.
My son is Thomas Clark Kent, my super-baby. He has CKD Chronic Kidney Disease. He's on peritoneal dialysis, has been for a year and 1/2. We adopted him when he was born. We also adopted a daughter, Heather Rose, she was born with heart problems and died at age 2 years, 2 months and 2 days old. When I get around to scrapping here, you will see all of us. Good to be here. Thanks for letting me hang around.

Hi my name is Judy. (I cannot figure out how to post a photo of myself)...but anyways I am from Massachusetts. I am married and have 3 children (my kids are from my first marriage. I have been very creative ever since I can remember. I started out learning to crochet from my Grammie. Which I still do to this day. I really only make afghans. I then learned to sew. She would give me material and show me the ins and outs of it. I did that until the day I was making aa teddy bear and sewed threw my more....I love drawing but am not too good on it. Although my sister says so. I did do counted cross stitch for many years until the eyes (well you know) didn't work so well. I gravitated to paper scrapbooking, but to tell you the truth it wasn't my a woman I used to be friends with introduced me to digital scrapping. Which is my passion now.

When my dad passed I got my first digital camera. I love capturing "memories" hence my name on my creations is Mee Memories. I incorporate some of my creations with my memory shots. I absolutley LOVE quotes. And I try to incorporate quotes that have meaning to my heart with my work.

Thank you for reading a little about me...have a blessed day...stay safe...keep scrapping!!!
