Welcome to all our lovely newbies here at PS! It's so nice to have you join us. smiley

I'm new to all this, so I'm a bit sad now with a lot of things suddenly (overnight) being unavailable to us. I understand the website has to have revenue and probably will become a patron, but having just started scrapping as a an oldie. I'm not sure of my needs as yet, and have been cut off some assets I would have liked to try, so I'll just have to learn to make my own. However, being new, I'm miffed because why should I now share the lovely brads of the wee kits in my stud? You could at least let new members have a few months trails, as a lot of sites do. I may or may not go elsewhere. Grrr!
Anyhow, that's for another day.
I live with hubby, 6 cats and 60 odd bunnies about an hour from the capital Wellington, New Zealand. I'm English; hubby a Kiwi. He's an academic at uni and I a psychologist. I love bunnies, and in desperation to find nice stuff for my wee stud and rescue bunnies, I turned to scrapping. I'm new, but learning quickly. There's not much out there to help bunny lovers (except some Easter stuff, but that should be left to chocolate buns), so I intend to make some things of my own with pics of my real bunnies and Norwegian Forest Cats for all those who want to scrap their beloved pet buns and Fancy champs. As well as my stud, I have a rescue for buns that are just chucked out, and I finance it myself from my own funds, including the vet fees, so I haven't got much left for anything else. My stud is called Heavensent, because the wee darlings are sent from heaven to us to love, and it's an honour to share my life with theirs. I breed mini lops and mini cashmere lops, but we are doing something right, because they live to ripe old ages and are so generous with their love. I find rabbits also help children heal, and the rabbit in the pic was believed to be an angel in earthly form by the Navaho Indians. They told me her tattoo number before she ever had one. She snored her way close to my heart and to championship, and in very old age, we bought her the softest, and most expensive rug, for her wee little feet to walk on when the ground outside was too hard. She also had fresh soft towels in her cage, the door of which was never closed. All the bunnies are loved and it takes 3hrs+ to feed them. One doesn't just chuck food at them: One talks, strokes and tells them how much you love them. You inspect them, too. ATM it's Winter and cold at night, so they have the heaters going. It's too wet for many runs atm, and trying to dry a wet long-haired bunny with a hair drier is rather akin to drying a sweater with a hair-drier. Oh well, I've nattered on for far too long. Have a happy time scrapping, everyone! Hugs to you all.

Hi I'm Cynthia and I have been digiscrap designing since 2007, however, I don't sell any of my designs. I have always done color challenges and just given away my work as a creative outlet. I have a VERY busy life and never wanted all the commitments of selling my creations. I will be launching a new blog soon with a focus on nutrition AND digiscrap too of course. I closed down my old "freebie" blog over a year ago. Looking forward to exploring, finding my way around and hopefully making some new friends.

Hi I Jen from Commerce,MI. I have 2 childern ares 2 and 6. And discovered digital scrapping a year ago when I wanted to make my own personalized Chritmas cards and now I am addicted.

Welcome to all the newbies! We are glad to have you here.

Hello. My name is Tammy Herzog. I've scrapbooked for many years. Or shall I say I've collected scrapbook supplies for many years. Having moved from a house that had it's own scrapbooking room to a small apt. I haven't had the drive to drag out my supplies and put back and have it in my way. So I haven't been scrapbooking. I can't even say where I saw that you can digital scrapbook, but thought about, i wasn't sure if it would be as satisfying as actually touching the papers, etc. But thought well it's not like I'm getting anything done anyway, might as well try it. So I got scrapbook max and started pages last month. I also got photoshop elements also and have been working with both. My only problem is I'm becoming a digital scrapbooking elements hoarder - but you never know when you will need that offbeat color.

Hi, I'm Helen. I live in the USA. I am brand new to digital scrapbooking. I am so excited to play with color and patterns to make my own papers as well as to use all of the great resources on this site. I'm hoping to participate in the next blog train.

Hi !!! My name is Yasmin and I'm from Germany. I'm also new to scrapbooking and I have just discovered this lovely site. At the moment I'm working on my first big digital scrapbooking project and I love it. Thanks for the great ressources here, they help me really. smiley

Welcome everyone! So glad to have you here!

Hi I am daniela, from Colombia. I started digital scrapbooking a year ago after my son was born because I didn't have time for physical scrapbook. I am in love with it and I am designing party invites and bundles for my friends in Colombia.

Hi Pixel Scrappers!

I was first introduced to traditional scrapbooking in 1996 as I was getting married - perfect timing to begin smiley. I fell in love with telling our life stories through pictures. Up until last year, I was a consultant with Creative Memories. I spent 20 years helping people ("the ladies", as our boys would call them) preserve their memories and tell their stories and even now I still coordinate scrapbooking retreats for all those scrapbookers who love to get together and scrapbook. I began completely digital scrapbooking our family stories in 2011 but I played with the digital program many years before that doing little gifts etc. I have to be honest, I never imagined myself enjoying digital scrapbooking as I do. I thought for sure I would never change from the traditional way of scrapbooking. Well, life has a way of changing our views of things sometimes, and here I am completely digital scrapbooking. I love that our boys love reading their stories. Their whole life has been documented. smiley I like to say that I've been "published" with every Storybook I create. I am looking forward to getting to know more of you in this community and hope to be an encouragement as we all continue to preserve our memories and stories.

Umm... hi! smiley

I'm pretty new to scrapbooking, both digital and otherwise. I remember when I was in kindergarten, my school had us make a scrapbook... I definitely did that completely wrong, since I used it to doodle in and glue random objects to paper. But hey, you can't expect a kindergartener to be a wizard at it! I almost wish I had kept it, even if all the random leaves and flowers I glued in would have long since turned to gross mulch.
I first started collecting digital scrapbook paper for craft purposes - namely, for making doll sized things. My first bit of Scrapbook paper was a purple and teal striped paper I intended to use for wallpaper in a room-box for my Madeline Hatter doll. I never gave all that much thought to scrapbooking until later, when I thought it might be a pretty neat idea to use scrapbooking to document - what else - my doll projects! Us doll collectors love taking pictures of our dolls anyway smiley
But I'm also at that time in a young person's life (I'm 25, believe it or not!) when so many amazing things are happening. Earlier this year, my cousin welcomed her second child into the world. My friends are getting married and having children, I'm going back to school, and little milestones are being met everywhere I look. What better time to start a scrapbooking journey?

Welcome everyone! So fun to have people at different points on the scrapbooking journey!

bonjour je me nomme flora
je suis maman à la retraite et passionnée de graphisme
j'espere avoir fait ma présentation au bon endroit
au plaisir de vous lire , et de vous parler

Welcome Flora!

I'm pretty shy & quiet in IRL so I'm not very good at the intro thing so here it goes...I stumbled on this community within the last month or so. But I have been around the digital scrapping world since it began! Being a web designer & developer since 1996 I was pretty at ease in making my own papers & such. I have made a few free kits throughout the years. I took a break from scrapping for quite some time until 2009 when I lost my baby boy at 16 weeks pregnant. I used scrapping to help me work through my grief. During that time I discovered a lot of new places in the scrapping community. But life got busy after I went on to have my daughter in 2010 and I haven't done much until recently. But this year I again lost another baby boy at 16 weeks pregnant and I again turned to scrapping to help me honor my baby boy. I was always an artist, drawing and even making my own paper dolls as a kid, so I guess creating art in any form seems to help me thru life's hurdles.

Outside of scrapping Im married to my wonderful DH for nearly 17 years, we have 3 living children, 2 boys & a girl with one indoor kitty. We live in an antebellum home built circa 1830's ~ so we are often busy with restoration projects. I'm always finding buttons, china & pottery shards and other misc old artifacts which I plan on scanning/photographing and using in my scrap projects. I hope to share those too one day!

Hello everyone my name is Anna I am new to digital scrapbooking, so I am finding my way slowly. I love this site and hope to become a regular user. Thank You for the lovely images they are helpful in my scrapping.

Welcome everyone! Thanks for saying hello!

I can't believe that I've been a subscriber for almost a year now. I have so many beautiful kits but because I have so little time for scrapbooking I'm way too insecure to post in the forum. I live on the farm lands of Wisconsin, help my husband along with my sons with a dairy and crop farm. I also work in town for a legal firm, to maintain my sanity because it's all men on the farm! I just need to jump into this digital wonderland and make time for myself!

Hi everyone! I'm Joyce from Iowa. I love to scrapbook when I have time. I also enjoy reading, watching movies, water walking or just relaxing in the pool. I've been married to my hubby, Ron for 30 years now. We have 2 adult children, their spouses and 2 granddaughters ages 9 & 7! which I love spending time with. I work fulltime in a pharmacy as a pharmacy technician. I have been downloading the gorgeous items from this site for about a year now and I absolutely love all the kits available. I haven't gotten much time to actually work on scrapbooking but when I retire in a few years I am planning on going to town on it!

Welcome ladies! Can't wait to see what you make with our downloads!

So many newbies the last couple weeks! Here's a big fat "Welcome!!!" from me. Looking forward to getting to know y'all. smiley

Hello, PixelScrapper Community. I found this place because I was looking for someone that I knew from another site. I had seen that she'd been ill and then I ended up finding here. Glad to see that she's recovering (I don't know her very well. Digi scrap acquaintance I believe might be the correct term. (Well now I just sound like a stalker, sorry about that.) smiley
This is a pic of me. I am facing the camera but doing a "cousin It" impression. Being silly getting a "headshot" done.
I've been digiscrapping since about 2006 (never really did traditional scrapping). I have also been designing some. I really appreciate the generous CU TOU and the designing challenges. smiley
I am married to a terrific guy and we have 2 grown and married children with their own families - 4 grandchildren with another on the way.
I also have a cat. smiley I think that covers most stuff.
Thank you all.

Well Hai! My name is Amber - I'm a 27 year old Homemaker and you can sing me "Happy Birthday" on March 24. smiley
I live with my "Boyfriend-gone-Fiance" of 8 years, 2 overweight Cats, Mary Jane & GaGa (who are paternal sisters), and a Stinkbug or two. smiley T.V. series and movies are an addiction of mine...as well as Chocolate! I spend most of my time on the Internet, Watching Telivision, and Working at my craft desk.

I am an AVID admirer of anything Organizing, Listing, and Digital Graphic Arts. At times I can get just a tad bit impulsive and end up spending 14 straight hours in Photoshop picking out a Style for a Text..lol..#Completely Honest. When it comes to these hobbies you may call me a little O.C.D. but, in this case, it can sometimes come in handy. I did some 3D Graphic Design work for a few years, making 3D clothing, accessories, hair, homes, etc. for an "online enhanced virtual chat room" called "Second Life", produced by San Francisco based company, Linden Labs. I got engaged in November of 2013 so I have since taken a break from "virtual living" to focus on my Wedding. In the present I design, produce, and sell crafting projects on my Etsy store, which can be found here: Sweet & Decoden

Some of the things I enjoy making include:
*Polymer Clay & Resin Jewelry & Magnets
*Wooden Projects such as Signs, Ring Boxes, etc.
*Restoration of scrap or junk items
*Decoden - Phone Cases & Jewelry
*All things Photoshop. Photoshop. Photoshop.
*Making new Photoshop presets like Styles, Brushes, Patterns, Gradients, Fonts, etc.
.....among a ton of other random things. I learn as I go.

I found pixelscrapper by searching Google for "Printable Labels" as I needed them for organizing my craft room. I have been HOOKED ever since then. I am not a scrapbook fan so much, but I love all the digital works that come with the territory. The creations on PS (pixelscrapper) give me a ton of inspiration and I am very very thankful to all the artists that contribute here as well as Marisa. I hope this gives you a little window into my world and God bless! smiley

Can't wait to be able to contribute to the site!,
