The Pixel Scrapper Team

Meet the amazing Pixel Scrapper team! We don't have an application page right now, but if you're interested in joining us for any of the positions below, we post call outs in the forums from time to time: so your best bet is to keep an eye on things, and be active in the community!

Fearless Leaders

Marisa first started Pixel Scrapper as a hobby site in 2010. In 2012 she got Jordan to come on board as webmaster and systems administrator.

  1. Hi There! I’m Marisa Lerin and you’ll see me around at Pixel Scrapper a lot. I started this site in 2010 soon after I discovered a new love in digital scrapbooking. Pixel Scrapper has gone through some significant changes since that time and it’s grown into this lovely community site you are seeing now. I am daily surprised by the turn of life’s events that has led me down this path. If you're new to the site, welcome! Here are a few tidbits about me that I hope will help you get to know me better!

    I’m originally from Minnesota, USA, but spent a good chunk of my childhood living abroad (in Bolivia and Hong Kong). I returned to Minnesota to attend university, got married and then moved overseas again (Korea, then Jordan and 1 year of traveling). My designs are heavily influenced by these many nomadic years. I am currently back in the USA, now living in the great state of Oregon!

    I have no official training for what I’m doing, since I decided very wisely (haha) to study physics in university. I am always learning new things about digital scrapbooking, and this community has been immensely helpful for that!

    If I manage to stop digital scrapbooking you will probably find me watching TV, reading or baking. I also enjoy writing for the blog here at Pixel Scrapper where I talk about whatever happens to be catching my fancy at the moment.

  2. I'm married to Marisa Lerin. I don't do much digital scrapbooking myself, but I am passionate about creativity, visual design, technology, and the web. I also help to run this website!

Junior Webmaster

Thani is is our junior webmaster extraordinaire and customer support ninja!

  1. Hi! I'm Jordan's youngest brother. I grew up in North Africa and the Middle East and have spent much of my life popping from place to place. In recent years I graduated from a smallish university in western Tennessee where I studied a little bit of everything but primarily English literature and also performed in many plays. I'm on the tech side of things on the site, but am all about creative endeavors in general! For the time being I live in Northern California. I like too many things, but some of my favorites are adventures and the simple pleasures of life, both enjoyed with people I love!

Designers

Our designers are super talented and super tight: friends who met right here at Pixel Scrapper! Click on their profile pictures to see their designs and learn more about them.

  1. My name is Jessica but you can call me Jessi or Jess if you prefer! I'm happily married to my best friend, whom I met online in 1996 & married in 1998. We both grew up and lived in the deep south but one day, not too long after Hurricane Katrina, we picked a spot on the map and found ourselves in Kentucky. We have called Kentucky home now for over 12 years. We purchased our nearly 200 year old home in 2011 and have been working on restoring it ever since. We have one child who left the nest, 3 children living at home, 1 outdoor dog, 2 outside cats and 5 indoor cats. During the school year I'm also busy homeschooling with my 12th grader, 3rd grader and preschooler.

    Over the years my digital hobbies tend to become my job. My first digital hobby was web design, and later found myself as a web designer/web developer. I later took a break from that and as a hobby began digital scrapping. I got involved in making things for the blog trains several years back and that was the catalyst for where I am today. I still enjoy making and sharing freebies for a few blog trains as well as creating layouts when I get some time. Besides being passionate about history, I also love photography, genealogy, and archaeology.

  2. Hi, I’m Brooke Gazarek from Ohio, USA. I'm a graphic designer and I also design here at Pixel Scrapper. I use multiple types of medium, to create fun and exciting results.

    I am also wife to a wonderful, loving, and supportive husband and mom to two energetic boys.

  3. I came to digital scrapbooking by way of Project Life, which I did in physical form for the first year and then tried out doing digitally, and became hooked for life on digital documenting. I made my first designs to share as contributions for Pixel Scrapper blog trains, and am thrilled to now be part of the Pixel Scrapper design team! I create products for digital pocket scrapbooking and traditional scrapbooking, and want to support people however I can in creatively and easefully documenting their lives.

    You can follow along with my Project Life adventures (and find past blog train goodies and other freebies) at my blog, Scrumptiously: http://eversoscrumptiously.wordpress.com/

  4. Hey there,

    I'm Janet. I was born and raised in Minnesota. My favorite title is mommy to two of the smartest, most beautiful, spunky, sweet girls out there. When I'm not taking care of the little peanuts, I run my photography and design businesses.

    I stumbled across Pixel Scrapper early on when it was first started (before it became the site that it is today). Ironically, I ended up messaging Marisa to see if I could help contribute. I wanted to find a way to give back. Little did I realize that years later I would end up being fortunate enough to join this fab team! :)

  5. I'm a tea drinking scrap-addict that can often be seen holding a camera in my hands.

  6. Wife and mother of two, a graphic- and webdesigner by day and scrapaddict by night!

  7. Hello!
    I am Elif, face behind Sahin Designs.I am a self-educated graphic designer who loves scrapbook and photography. My design history is fairly new yet I can't tell how much I love to learn new things each day. Pixel Scraper is my first place where I started designing, actually to be correct it is where I started scrapbooking! And I love this place, fellow designers and the PS community where everyone is so helpful and full of love!

  9. I am a dedicated stay at home mom to a most awesome husband and 4 amazing children. My husband and I have been married for 20 years, and my children are my everything. My most favorite thing in the world to do apart from family time is design. I've been into scrapbooking forever, but started the digi world of scrapbooking for about 5 years now, and started designing about 2 years ago. I also love reading to, playing with, and homeschooling my little ones. We are in the military, so we have also traveled a lot, but I am happy to be finally settled here in Alabama and retiring this year!

Moderators

Our moderators are super friendly, super active community members who keep our forums running like a well-oiled machine! Now if only Jordan would help them out by implementing forum search...

  1. I love to scrap. I scrap in both digital and traditional. I got into scrapping about 17 years ago because I absolutely love photography and was working on my husbands and mine genealogy at the time. I am a self-professed "pin"aholic on Pinterest!!!

  2. I'm a 55-year-old, wife of Freddy for 33 years, mother of two daughters, Lacy-25 (Shawn-27), and USMC LCpl Anne-22, Grammy to Kolten Cooper-5, Caddie-2, and Hunter-2mos, fur-mommy to Harley-1 our Chug (Chihuahua-Pug), MOTO-Marine Mom, KIA-driving, book-reading, music-collecting, computer-surfing, wine-drinking, photo-snappin', SCRAPBOOKING DIVA! Crazy!
    I've just started "designing" some digi-scrap items, mainly for the PS Blog Trains. I'm thrilled that so many people give me such wonderful kudos for my pieces even though I will never compare to some of the amazing designers here. Scrapbooking is creative outlet and secret place of sanity. My major scrapping accomplishments include our Grandson Kolten's First Year Album (126 pages.....first grandchild, yeah I went overboard!). I just finished our granddaughter Caddie's ABC Album (since she didn't live with us, I was able to stay more realistic about this one). Memory albums for my Gram and my Dad. Honor albums for my Hubby and my Mom. I am now working, somewhat sporadically on my own All About Me Album, while continuing to create pages for our family annual album.
    If you don't know enough about me by now, you never will............ Oh yeah, I tend to be sarcastic.........
    My occupation doesn't even begin to describe what I do............SPED Para, MA Billing Specialist, AT Specialist, MTAS Administrator, SPED ECSE Clerk.

  3. You have to hurry up if you want to see something, everything disappears.

    Paul Cezanne

    I am Bina and I love scrapbooking and photography. And I am forever grateful to Elif who introduced me to Pixel Scrapper where everyone is so helpful and lovely. Apart from everything crafty, I love fishing and the sea, the outdoors, spending time with family and friends.
    In a nutshell, like Brick Heck from The Middle in more ways than not, my idea of a perfect evening is much like his:

    'I show you my favorite logos and then we pick new fonts for them together"

  4. I have been married for almost 38 years, have 3 adult children, nine grandchildren, and two hairless (Chinese Crested) dogs.

    Many of my designs can be mixed and matched so be sure to check out my previous uploads. If you love my designs, I am happy. If you don't love them, I am still happy because I am doing what I enjoy.

  5. I am new to designing stationary and invitations. I haven't tried my hand at creating my own papers and graphics, but look forward to the day I have photoshop and can learn how to use it. Right now, designing birthday, and other party, invitations is a hobby and as a SAHM it gives me some me time. I get a ton of gratification out of creating something that I know the recipient loves.

  7. Hi, I'm Shannon. I live in a small, rural community north of Toronto, Ontario, Canada with my husband, David and our daughter, Keira. I discovered digital scrapbooking a few years ago, and although I don't have much time for it between work and sports, I'm totally hooked! I'm learning more and more from the Pixel Scrapper community and love sharing my projects and gaining inspiration from others'.

  8. I live in Central Ohio, USA. I am a mother of 4 awesome kids, 2 boys and 2 girls, ages 20, 17, 15, and 13. I am also becoming a grandmother or "Naani" for the first time in November 2019! I am also engaged to the absolute love of my life, Roy and he has 3 amazing boys, ages 11, 10, and 8, his youngest was actually in my preschool class when he was 3.

    I graduated with an Associates degree in nutrition in May 2016. I am a Team Lead at a preschool until I find my dream job. I have been paper scrapbooking since 2000 and digital scrapbooking since 2006. I also used to design, but went on hiatus during a divorce and then again during my schooling. Hopefully I'm back for good! You may have seen me in other forums as rachelbrein, scarlettcharm or Rachel Martin.

    When I am not making memories, preserving them, sleeping or working, Roy and I are avid Wizards Unite & Pokemon Go enthusiasts, we also love binge watching TV shows and discussing filmography and camera angles and shots, the entire family is a lover of the Harry Potter Universe and all things Marvel, we love all types of music, and I love designing scrapbooking kits and elements. We also love attending live events around town including concerts, live bands, and plays (big and small). The kids often keep us busy with musical instrument lessons, High School Theatre, Softball, Cheerleading etc. We have a large busy family and we love it.

  9. Hello! My name is Lorien and I am a thirty-something years-old from São Paulo, Brazil, married for almost a decade, and proud kitten mom.
    I got in contact with Pixel Scrapper before it was the amazing site you´re seeing, when I was looking for some assets for hybrid scrapbooking. I enjoyed it so much that I´m on this site since the closed beta. I was a beginner back then and I learned a lot here, and soon became forum moderator as a way to give a little back. It was because of Pixel Scrapper that I started designing too. It prooved a really useful skill for my small craft business.

  10. I enjoy digital scrapping. I actually do both digital and paper scrapping. Something I have been doing for years.
    I enjoy researching my families past. Have made many contacts and connected with family members I did not even know existed. I have been compiling history, pictures and documents to date.
    I am a designer, web designer, and a Professor at our local College.

    Happy scrapping.

  11. My name is Kayl, pronounced like the leafy green kale. I'm 27 and living in Sweden with my husband Fredrik. We had our first surviving little one, Alexander, born Feb 4th, 2018!

    I'm still not sure I know what I'm doing when I create kits but I do enjoy trying and experimenting. :) Hopefully you enjoy my creations and can use them to scrap beautiful memories!

  12. Wife and mother of two, a graphic- and webdesigner by day and scrapaddict by night!

  13. A mini-biography: Born and raised in the upper Midwest, lived in both rural and urban areas, disabled at age 30, have been in eastern Tennessee since 2009. Divorced, but dating an incredible man that I hope to spend the next 50-60 years with. I have a son who'll be 24 this year, who's a US Navy submariner.

    I've been collecting scrap freebies for a while, making layouts for my photography scrapbook and more recently a toddler niece. I tend to be sort of seasonal with my interests, as photography in the cold aggravates fibromyalgia, and too much sunlight triggers lupus flareups--so I scrap a lot in summer and winter and enjoy spring and fall outdoors, often with a camera in hand. If I'm not shooting photos, training my mobility dog, or designing (mostly commercial-use items for my shop), I'm probably either watching anime or playing Steam games or one of several tabletop RPGs with my gaming group.

Upload Helpers

These ladies are the super heroes of Pixel Scrapper! Since day one, we've had a dream of free daily download credits, and making all our designs available for individual download; well, these upload helpers are the ones who make that dream possible!

  1. I am from Georgia and currently live in a town that is just minutes away from the beaches of Florida and the Okefenokee Swamp. I use PSE14 for my layouts and creations. My other hobbies include rock painting and hunting, sewing, crafts and genealogy. I am a Nana of 9 and the resident Treat Lady to 4 Dogs and 4 Chickens.

  2. I'm married to a wonderful man and we have two fur-babies. I have no children but I'm an aunt several times. I have made several digital gift albums and calendars, but my own albums are still paper scrapping since I have printed pictures from before I discovered digital. I am taking photography class to learn how to use my poor little-used DSLR.

  3. Hi. My name is Tina and I'm a digi scrapping addict! I started paper scrapping back in 2002 when my youngest son was 2 years old. I discovered digi scrapbooking in 2006 and never looked back. I live in Florida with my DH and our 2 boys and lots of animals!

  4. Wife and mom to three cute kids. They are the stars of my scrapbooking layouts! I am also a digital scrapbook designer designing as Day Dreams 'n Designs. I love digi-scrapping & designing, card-making, reading, and playing with my kids in our awesome park-like backyard!

  5. I like to bake. and i am thirteen years old.

  6. Retired in Dec 2011 and finally have time to get into digi-scrapping! First PSE classes taken in June so finally understood how to make a layout. Lots of hobbies: ceramics, crocheting, cross stitch, sewing (especially baby doll clothes for grand nieces) and want to learn to knit!

  7. I love photography and have an addiction to photoshop! I have extensive knowledge of photoshop and teach workshops from my home in both photography and photoshop editing.

    I love sewing and crafting in general. Creating handmade gifts bring such joy to both myself and of course to the recipient. I often create my own props and costumes for my photo shoots.

    We enjoy traveling to see the beauty in the world, and it gives us the opportunity to experience new cultures and people. My ultimate wish would be to visit every country on this glorious earth!
    I'm thankful and grateful for all of the people in my life, and for the experiences I've had.

  8. My name is Nili, I'm 36 years old (OH MY GOD I'm soooo old lol), I'm from Israel, married to Andrey for 6 years (we have just celebrated our 6th-anniversary last week!) this is our second marriage for both of us.
    I have 3 sons. 12 & 10 years old son from my first marriage and 5 years little son from my current marriage.

    Since I know my self I loved to design Digital stuff.

    I have always loved shabby chic and bright pastel colors, so most of my designs are related to Shabby & Vintage ideas.

  9. I am new to designing stationary and invitations. I haven't tried my hand at creating my own papers and graphics, but look forward to the day I have photoshop and can learn how to use it. Right now, designing birthday, and other party, invitations is a hobby and as a SAHM it gives me some me time. I get a ton of gratification out of creating something that I know the recipient loves.

  11. I am a Baptist missionary pastor's wife, mom of three and grandmother of 7! I am from USA and we have lived and worked in northern Japan since 1983. I love digital scrapbooking, card making, playing two different instruments, baking, singing, oil painting, and pottery making.

  12. Mom. Geek. Designer. Daydreamer.

    Hello, I am just starting with digital scrapbooking, I have a lot of projects in my head but still feel insecure on the execution stage. I have been gathering resources that go from freebies to ideas to complex tutorials. The stages encompassing my projects are:

    - organize digital pictures (10% complete)
    - UPDATE->scan my grandmother's pictures (95% complete)
    - scan my parents pictures (100% complete)
    - scan our pictures before digital camera (100% complete)
    - gather resources for Disney Scrapbook (is this stage ever complete?:D )
    - finish my Family Tree (95% complete)
    - finish genealogy research (~50% complete)
    - gather resources for Heritage Scrapbook (each branch of my family tree will be color coded, so lots more resources to gather)
    - design the pages, all 12"x12", using PSD/Tiff templates (1% complete)
    - UPDATE->for a few of the scrapbooks I am going to print at Photobook Canada I am going with landscape sized layouts because: coupons ;) I am adapting a few 12x12 layouts into 8.5x11 as well as converting some of the Photobook Canada's software to PSD/Tiff designs, which is lots of work but also fun to do :)
    - UPDATE->print Scrapbooks at Photobook Canada or Mixbook (3% complete)

    Thanks for reading,
    cheers!

Creative Team

Meet some of our community's amazingly talented layout makers! Click on their profile pictures to check out their beautiful creations. These ladies provide a huge amount of inspiration for everyone here at Pixel Scrapper!

  1. I am a single mom to an amazing 14-year-old son. He keeps me on my toes and active. We live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest along with our fur baby, Phoebe the kitty. I have been digiscrapping for 14 years and love it. I have finally accepted the fact that I am a digiscrap addict and I am ok with that. No 12-step program for me as I am quite happy in my active addiction. I volunteer at a small, amazingly wonderful private school where I help run the AR (Accelerated Reading) Program, oversee the libraries and work one-on-one with children who have Autism, Down Syndrome, neuromotor deficits, and those who just need a little extra assistance. I also participate in quite a bit of community service. Service to others is my passion.

    I am a collector of Funko Pop! Vinyls; I am a F.R.I.E.N.D.S. fanatic (PIVOT!); I love love love Nikki Sixx (and even have him in Pop! form); lemonade runs through my veins, not blood; strawberry mochi and peaches with chia seeds are my favorite snacks; VW buggies (old & new) make me smile and I have owned three, my first car was a '69 Bug, my second car was a '72 Super Beetle, and I now own an '03 convertible New Beetle; Pacific Northwest beaches are my own private heaven; vintage Shasta trailers (with the wings) make my heart dance (and I intend to own and refurbish one soon); and ugly (which is subjective, of course), "naked" animals make me happy (naked mole rates, skinny pigs, sphynx cats, Chinese crested dogs, featherless fowl...)

    My life is a great big ball of controlled chaos and I wouldn't want it any other way!

  2. I have always been playing around with photos and layouts from the time I got my first digital camera in the 1990s. My children (all grown now) remember me making photo pages and books from summer vacation pictures when they were very young. I spent most of my life (first half-century) in Saskatchewan Canada but now live and work in the South Pacific.

  3. I have a been a scrapbooker for over 20 years. I started out with all the physical supplies and still have a decent stash in the basement but then switched over to digital when that became the next big "thing." I love the versatility of digital. I have 4 children, a wonderful husband, 1 grandson and 2 dogs.

  4. i love scraps and foto's

  5. I'm from France. Digiscrapping since 2013. Mom of 3, married in 1997. Love books, photographs, bike, piano, classic music, tea, coffe and so…
    No pets.

  6. Hi! I'm 45 years old and live in Minnesota, USA. I really love scrapbooking. I scrap both with paper and digitally and love them equally. I work as a Decorative Artist which basically is painting murals & other pieces on people's walls. It's a great creative outlet and I can set my own hours which is really nice! I just found this site, and fell in love with the community feeling of it (nevermind the great kits)!

  7. I'm a 55-year-old, wife of Freddy for 33 years, mother of two daughters, Lacy-25 (Shawn-27), and USMC LCpl Anne-22, Grammy to Kolten Cooper-5, Caddie-2, and Hunter-2mos, fur-mommy to Harley-1 our Chug (Chihuahua-Pug), MOTO-Marine Mom, KIA-driving, book-reading, music-collecting, computer-surfing, wine-drinking, photo-snappin', SCRAPBOOKING DIVA!

    My occupation doesn't even begin to describe what I do............SPED Para, MA Billing Specialist, AT Specialist, MTAS Administrator, SPED ECSE Clerk.

  8. I'm a freelance editor, writer and photographer. I picked up cardmaking as an art hobby more than 25 years ago. That led to scrapbooking, but really took off when digital scrapbooking software started popping up on the market. Thanks to PixelScrapper, I have honed my design skills and do some small design jobs for hire, along with my regular editing and writing. I live in the beautiful state of Montana where I work from home and volunteer for a local non-profit called the Dylan Steigers Concussion Project. I also teach water aerobics at our local Women's Club. (Otherwise, I might sit on the couch all day designing!). Besides a passion for photography, I love sports, flyfishing, cardmaking, gardening, and walking. My goal is to try to learn a new technique or enhance existing ones every month so I can give back to this wonderful community of scrapbookers through the PS blog trains.

  9. I am a 30 something mother, daughter, art teacher, artist, and yoga lover. I also run a Teachers Pay Teachers store and an Etsy Shop that sells digital party printables. I have two little boys.

  10. Mom of three adult children and Nana to one awesome grandson and one beautiful granddauther. Full-time wife, mom, Nana, student , Program Specialist and crafter. Is there enough time in the day for all of that? Of course, it's all about priorities.

  11. www.pixelscrapper.com/tonje-gram/gallery

    Hi.. my name is Tonje, 43 years old.. and I`ve been scrapping for about 10 years.
    My style is mostly contemporary, clean, airy, but I've been dabbling with blending and are curious about Art Journal.
    Too much 3D and fantasy style doesn't fit me. But I love trying out new things.. and often join challenges.

    My native language is Norwegian and I live in.. Norway!
    Yes, that tiny country in north.. with Fjords and all..
    To compensate for being such a tiny country.. we've got high mountains..
    but they doesn`t do much for me.. since I live by the coast..
    In a tiny city called Sandefjord.. oh yeah it`s a Fjord here also.
    We are about 2 hours, by car, south-west of the capital Oslo.

    Please ignore my curly sentences (?) English is my second language.
    The spellchecker brightens up my text with red lines..
    - but it doesn't help me with building sentences.

    I just got myself a new PC, been saving for a year.. it`s awesome..
    4 TB.. yes.. Terra Bytes.. Hard Disk.
    Besides bragging about my new PC.. I love Sudoku, Photography (of course)..
    I knit while watching films.. I read most genre except horror.. mostly I prefer Historical drama.
    Oooh.. and 80% Dark Chocolate.. Addicted..
    On my new shiny PC I`ve got tons of pictures taken in Peru,
    and photos of our Garden (Hundreds of different flowers/plants/trees), our boat at sea..
    + family, friends, food, daytrips.. just to mention a few themes..
    Got Photoshop CS3 and CS6 (but prefer CS3).

    I have two sons.. but only one living at home (the oldest moved out..)
    Felix, my youngest.. is so creative and often hangs over my back when I am scrapping
    and comes with ideas and suggestions. You`ll see I make a scrapper out of him.
    He is a bit socially awkward and has autism.. so we spend a lot of time together.. Just him and me.
    Together we often go on trips and photograph.. we both have decent cameras
    and it is a activity that doesn't require much social skills.
    Lots of the pictures I scrap is taken by him..
    and it makes him so proud to see pretty pages with his pics.

  12. Colour, light and texture... they make my world go 'round! Digital Production Manager by day, crazy mad scientist-like artist by night, not creating is like holding my breath! From old school scrapping and digital to sewing a dainty dress and repurposing an old man jacket into a hat, I'm always busy making, making making!

  13. I am a stay at home Mum to one little girl and a craft addict, I don't feel right if I don't get my crafting fix!I have always crafted in some form or another and tried my hand at all sort including glass painting, jewellery making, sewing, crochet, card making and scrapbooking. I discovered scrapbooking about 10 years ago and got hooked. After years of disregarding digital scrapping I had a sudden conversion in November 2013 and instantly became addicted. Now I can't believe I was so anti it before! As a full time Mum digital scrapping fits so much better into my life and budget at the moment but I will never give up all my lovely stash! I try to make digital layouts in the same style as I would paper ones and make then look as "real" as possible by only using elements which would work on a paper layout, adding shadows and using "glow" to recreate the inking I always add to my paper layouts! I look forward to exploring this new world and having fun here at PS.

    At 18 months after I started on this digital adventure I am still loving it and have been accepted on to several Creative Teams, including here at PS! The next step is to try designing!

    I am Bina and I love scrapbooking and photography. And I am forever grateful to Elif who introduced me to Pixel Scrapper where everyone is so helpful and lovely. Apart from everything crafty, I love fishing and the sea, the outdoors, spending time with family and friends.
    In a nutshell, like Brick Heck from The Middle in more ways than not, my idea of a perfect evening is much like his:

    'I show you my favorite logos and then we pick new fonts for them together"

  16. Hey scrappy friends! I live in MN with my husband and 4 kids. I am an AppScrappers! I enjoy capturing recording and sharing our memories.

  17. I started the crafting journey with my grandmother who taught me to sew. As life has evolved so has my crafting. A few years ago I began bible journaling and conducting workshops locally. As my passion and love for journaling evolved so did my passion for paper crafting which has lead me to making numerous crafty paper projects such as pocket letters, flip books, and junk journals. A mother of 2 girls bought of which are married and a grandmother of one special 3 year old.

  18. I'm a stay at home mom of 2, a boy 15 yrs old and a girl that is 13 (going on 21)! You can probably find me scrapping, blogging, designing, reading ebooks & watching design/scrapping tutorials! I admit I am a digi addict & I am on the pc way longer than I should be! Luckily the rest of my family is as well, we have just about every digital gadget known to man! I love being a part of Pixel Scrapper and am very happy I found Pixel Scrapper in the first place!

  19. I love to read and travel (camping and cruising) and digi scrap about our travels.

  20. 04/23/2015: time for an update. Retired for almost a year, I love to spend more time with my grandchildren now with 4 boys and 1 girl. Unfortunately we don't see the baby girl very often as they live a bit too far to make it convenient for regular visits. I stay updated via Facebook and most of the photos of her come from there so the quality is a bit undesirable. Still loving scrapping and hoping to rediscover my other hobby, stamping. Pixelscrapper is a great place to hang out!

  21. Hi, I'm Shannon. I live in a small, rural community north of Toronto, Ontario, Canada with my husband, David and our daughter, Keira. I discovered digital scrapbooking a few years ago, and although I don't have much time for it between work and sports, I'm totally hooked! I'm learning more and more from the Pixel Scrapper community and love sharing my projects and gaining inspiration from others'.

  22. Greetings! I am from Chapel Hill, NC (USA) and have recently become completely addicted to anything and everything remotely associated with digital scrapbooking. I have no children of my own (unless you count the 2 furry creatures that share my house and beg for food), but I thoroughly spoil any tiny humans I can get my hands on. I have been tagging and designing web pages for tournaments in gaming leagues for several years, but I am relatively new to scrapbooking. I'm branching out and trying my hand at creating an entry for the blog train soon, so you'll be hearing a lot more from me in the future! One question....how do you STOP once you've started creating papers?...I mean, first day of designing and I look up from my creative coma to find that I've made 60!!!!

  23. I am a Baptist missionary pastor's wife, mom of three and grandmother of 7! I am from USA and we have lived and worked in northern Japan since 1983. I love digital scrapbooking, card making, playing two different instruments, baking, singing, oil painting, and pottery making.

  24. I live in Central Ohio, USA. I am a mother of 4 awesome kids, 2 boys and 2 girls, ages 20, 17, 15, and 13. I am also becoming a grandmother or "Naani" for the first time in November 2019! I am also engaged to the absolute love of my life, Roy and he has 3 amazing boys, ages 11, 10, and 8, his youngest was actually in my preschool class when he was 3.

    I graduated with an Associates degree in nutrition in May 2016. I am a Team Lead at a preschool until I find my dream job. I have been paper scrapbooking since 2000 and digital scrapbooking since 2006. I also used to design, but went on hiatus during a divorce and then again during my schooling. Hopefully I'm back for good! You may have seen me in other forums as rachelbrein, scarlettcharm or Rachel Martin.

    When I am not making memories, preserving them, sleeping or working, Roy and I are avid Wizards Unite & Pokemon Go enthusiasts, we also love binge watching TV shows and discussing filmography and camera angles and shots, the entire family is a lover of the Harry Potter Universe and all things Marvel, we love all types of music, and I love designing scrapbooking kits and elements. We also love attending live events around town including concerts, live bands, and plays (big and small). The kids often keep us busy with musical instrument lessons, High School Theatre, Softball, Cheerleading etc. We have a large busy family and we love it.

  28. Mom. Geek. Designer. Daydreamer.

    Hello, I am just starting with digital scrapbooking, I have a lot of projects in my head but still feel insecure on the execution stage. I have been gathering resources that go from freebies to ideas to complex tutorials. The stages encompassing my projects are:

    - organize digital pictures (10% complete)
    - UPDATE->scan my grandmother's pictures (95% complete)
    - scan my parents pictures (100% complete)
    - scan our pictures before digital camera (100% complete)
    - gather resources for Disney Scrapbook (is this stage ever complete?:D )
    - finish my Family Tree (95% complete)
    - finish genealogy research (~50% complete)
    - gather resources for Heritage Scrapbook (each branch of my family tree will be color coded, so lots more resources to gather)
    - design the pages, all 12"x12", using PSD/Tiff templates (1% complete)
    - UPDATE->for a few of the scrapbooks I am going to print at Photobook Canada I am going with landscape sized layouts because: coupons ;) I am adapting a few 12x12 layouts into 8.5x11 as well as converting some of the Photobook Canada's software to PSD/Tiff designs, which is lots of work but also fun to do :)
    - UPDATE->print Scrapbooks at Photobook Canada or Mixbook (3% complete)

    Thanks for reading,
    cheers!

  29. I'm Melanie, 37, from right outside Boston, Ma. I have been married to Rob for 12 years. We have 2 girls Olivia, 14, and Layla, 11. We are die hard New England Patriots fans who don't pronounce our "R's" and use the word "wicked" as an adjective, so basically the stereotypical Bostonian. I'm a lover of all things crafty, obsessed with "The Walking Dead" and most anything horror related! Graphic design intrigues me and I've learned most of everything I know from Google. I am proud to say I've never owned an iPhone, I am a true Android snob. I have 3 large containers of paper scrapbooking products, yet I have never completed even 1 paper page. While googling for paper scrapbooking ideas I came across digital scrapping and never tried to make a paper page again ( to be fair I have used the paper scrapping stuff for other things).

  30. I love digital scrapbooking and am a member of several Creative Teams, including Marisa Lerin's. I am from the Philippines and go by the name lawyerlyn in the digiworld.

  31. I live in South Africa. I have been digi scrapping for 7 years and I am now totally addicted. I also do designing. My goodies are available at Wilma4Ever and My Memories stores under the design name of Simply Stated Scrap Designs.

    I have been married to my soulmate since 1992. We have 2 sons, a daughter in law, a son in law and 2 gorgeous grand daughters. As well as 3 doggies and 2 kitties to complete the family.

    I CT for Booland Designs, Aimee Harrison Designs.

  32. Hi from sunny Brisbane, Australia!
    Ive been scrapbooking since 2007. I started as a traditional scrapper but my style has evolved greatly since those early days. I didn't know anyone else who crafted until I found creative memories. While I loved the community I was a part of it never felt comfortable in that 'style'. I felt limited and eventually gave it away.
    After the birth of my second child I felt drawn to the scrapping world again and quickly found it had changed. I dabbled with pocket scrapping then digital scrapping. I have since combined the two to make it my own.
    I love the pixil scrapper. It has not only been an amazing resource (I always seem to be able to find that last little finishing touches here) but it has become a platform for me to share and be inspired by other amazing artists. Now that we also encompass hybrid scrappers I truly feel a part of this amazing community.

  33. Wife and stay-at-home Mom, living in Washington with my husband and son. Our son keeps me on my toes with schedules and sports and such, as does the job of home management.
    I absolutely LOVE hybrid scrapping, making cards, playing around with photography, and having deep conversations with family and friends.

  34. My experience in the digital graphics industry began a few years ago (2007 or so – does that count?), when I purchased a DSLR camera (Nikon D70s), mostly to capture my growing family and children as they participated in sports. I found myself tweaking the photos and loving it! Then I discovered digital scrapbooking (where I was previously using paper), which progressed into digital design when I couldn't find items I wanted! I really enjoy learning new techniques and designing definitely keeps me on my toes!

    IRL (in real life), I provide IT support. I have previously been an instructor and trainer as well. I do love computers and most things technical and am always up for a good, technical challenge!

    I have been married to my loving husband for 10 years and we have 3 children – ages 10, 17 and 19. Our family has one cat (Kitty), one dog (Hank) and one rabbit (Reese).

  35. I am a not-so-newbie to digital scrapbooking, but was hooked as soon as I started playing around with kits, fonts, and photos. I started taking photos when my oldest turned one year old, then started scrapbooking about a year after that. I now have three spunky little kids (two boys and a sweet little Sparkleheart) that keep me busy, and when I'm not tending to them, I'm chilling with my feet up on my computer or watching some wonderful television programs with the husband!!

  36. Hi, I'm Diana, 49 years old, living in Belgium, 31 years married and mother of 2 sons
    I work in home care 20 hours a week and also a lot of hobbies including photography and digital scrapbooking.

  37. Stay-at-home mum of two young boys.
    I enjoy hiking, cycling, swimming, digital scrapbooking.

  38. My name is Kayl, pronounced like the leafy green kale. I'm 27 and living in Sweden with my husband Fredrik. We had our first surviving little one, Alexander, born Feb 4th, 2018!

    I'm still not sure I know what I'm doing when I create kits but I do enjoy trying and experimenting. :) Hopefully you enjoy my creations and can use them to scrap beautiful memories!

  39. I am currently a stay-at-home grandma. I have spent the last 10 years partnered with my best friend of 15 years, and this coming August (2016) we will finally tie the knot! Boy, is he a patient man, or what?

    Scrapping has become such an important and HUGE part of my life! I love the creative outlet it provides, as well as the wonderful people I meet and spend time with. I'm happy to be a part of the Pixel Scrapper community and look forward to getting to know everyone.

Community Designers

Meet our generous and talented community designers working in the Pixel Scrapper Commons!

The Pixel Scrapper Commons is an area where community members of all levels can upload and share designs they create, while getting feedback and progressing as designers.

  1. I'm digital scrapbook designer. As an artistic soul I love creating beautiful designs allowing me to express myself. I share my passion for creation at Sunshine Inspired Designs. My adventure with digital scrapbooking started while my husband and I decided to travel indefinitely and traditional scrapbooking wasn't an option any more. I fell in love with it so much that I decided to create my own kits and share them with everyone who loves scrapbooking as much as I do.

    I'm also passionate about animals and photography, so it only seemed natural to start photographing them! In addition to my work as a photographer, I hold a degree in Environmental Biology from Gdansk University, Poland. I’ve worked with many amazing animals throughout my years as an animal care giver, pet sitter, volunteer, and trainer.

  2. When I am not at work, I avoid housework by reading, scrapbooking or baking. I am one belt shy from getting my black belt in Taekwondo but a recent knee injury has delayed that goal. I went back to school when my youngest was 4 and became a dentist. Both kids are in college now and my hubby and I are enjoying the empty nest.

  3. I wrote so little about myself the first time so am here again to rectify that. I am 60yr old nanna of 9 grand kids from my 3 children, who are the light of my life :) I used to take photography of weddings, children pets etc but did it for the price of film etc as in the day if you loved photography it was so expensive... it kept my hobby going and kept me busy and I got popular(who knew!). When the digital cameras came about I bought my first SLR, the weddings etc kept going but I added wildlife to that and I LOVED going to the Australian bush for as long as possible to get down n dirty with the wild critters... its my element. Digital cameras a digital art on a computer seems to go hand in hand.... so, here I am :)

  4. Update Jan 2019 -- After a very,very bad year, healthwise, I am unexpectedly feeling much better for the first time in 5 years. Like almost normal! Starting on 3 wonderful weeks now. I've got lots of house and paper work to catch up on, but I hope to be able to start posting stuff here before the end of February. I would have never have survived the past 5 years without the mercy of Jehovah and the pain relief from playing with little scraps on my iPad.

    Hi! I am married, no children. A voracious reader, reading 4-5 books a week since I was a youngster devouring Nancy Drew mysteries. Now I spend a lot of time digging through public domain archives and snagging interesting books and magazines for reading and study. So many treasures to be found on the Internet!

    Recently disabled/retired from a top 20 university where I was a sysadmin. Didn't know what I was going to do with myself, but I discovered digiscrapping and found that I absolutely love making elements and working with exotic textures. Most of my work starts out on my iPad, even the making of papers. Health issues prevent me from spending much time sitting at my computer. Luckily I have found that I can do just as much with my iPad as I can with Photoshop with the exception of applying styles.

  5. I'm a former career girl, now stay-at-home mom of 3, 4 if you count my fur baby, a pug. I love digital scrabooking, photography, travel, running, and anything outdoors.

  6. I am from Georgia and currently live in a town that is just minutes away from the beaches of Florida and the Okefenokee Swamp. I use PSE14 for my layouts and creations. My other hobbies include rock painting and hunting, sewing, crafts and genealogy. I am a Nana of 9 and the resident Treat Lady to 4 Dogs and 4 Chickens.

  7. Hi, my name is Cathy I am a mum of two grown children and live in the UK. I started traditional scrapbooking about 10 years ago and moved over to digital scrapbooking soon after. I am a business owner but love to design digital kits for sale in my spare time. I am also a digital artist and love to create works of fantasy. I am a little addicted to creating repeating patterns it is one of my favorite things to do. I am delighted to be here on Pixel Scrapper and to be able to give a little something back and share with you some of my personal use creations.

  8. I love all things paper and designing for scrapbooking and other digital paper crafts. I have worked in several creative industries along with a number of years creating as a freelance craft designer. Armed with a library of images, my trusty iMac, and a stash of craft goodies that I have collected over the years, I finally have time to play!

  9. I am 41 yr old mother of 5 and 1 granddaughter. I have been using Paint Shop Pro and Animation Shop for about 19 years. I am trying to learn how to make my own kits, which is how I came across this site. I am looking forward to expanding my knowledge. Thank you!!

  10. I'm a primitive and colonial style crafter, luv working with graphics and learning new things. And I luv to share what I create! I luv my family & friends and look forward to meeting new ones.

  11. I a mum of 2.I have just started to digital scrapbooking.

  12. Hi. My name is Tina and I'm a digi scrapping addict! I started paper scrapping back in 2002 when my youngest son was 2 years old. I discovered digi scrapbooking in 2006 and never looked back. I live in Florida with my DH and our 2 boys and lots of animals!

  13. Hi! My name is Renee Clark. I am a wife to a wonderful husband, and mom of 3 kids. My oldest is 15 and in 10th grade. My twins are 13 and are in 8th grade. We have an adorable, very large Goldendoodle named Max.

    A local friend, Lisel Rice, introduced me to Pixelscrapper. That is how I landed here.

    It has been quite a few years since I have done any kind scrapbooking. I'm excited to pick up digital scrapbooking. I served as a Design Team member for a couple of paper scrapbook companies before the crafting industry hit a low. Both of those companies went out of business, I lost my online community of scrappy friends, and with that, I also lost my mojo and stopped scrapbooking.

    I worked at The Boeing Company for 10 years as a 2D and 3D artist developing Computer Based Training and that is where I picked up my initial Photoshop skills. Then I went to Microsoft and worked as a 3D artist on both of Microsoft's PC-based games Flight Sim 2001 and Combat Flight Sim 3. Seven days before my first kid was born I resigned from my career. It has been almost 16 years since I have been in the corporate world.

    Today I own a small art studio in my local area. My studio is new and I'm trying to build it from scratch. It is called "CREATE Courageously" and I teach mixed media art (I LOVE using Super Heavy Gesso and Modeling Paste to create heavily textured designs). While that is where my heart is, I believe I will find some relaxing moments here, while scrapping digitally.

    I look forward to meeting everyone here in the forums.

  14. Completely in love with graphic art! Since last year I have enjoyed the wonderful universe Scrapbook!

  15. hi i love psp and taging as well as scrapbooking reading doing crafts old movies and tv shows have 4 grown kids 9 grands and 2 great grand glad to be here.joyce

  16. Hi there! I'm Marjan (in English that would be Mar-i-an) and I'm from the Netherlands. I have one son, Dennis, he's 7 years old and will be 8 in January '19. I live in a city in the north of Holland, called Groningen with my family of 3. In my daytime job I'm a careworker for 3/4 days a week and I love it.

    Apart from digiscrapping I have many other hobby's. I love drawing and painting (watercolour, acrylics, ink etc. but also digitally), reading, going outdoors, photography, (binge)watching my favorite movies and shows and I couldn't do without music and going to concerts and festivals.

    I started digital scrapbooking way back in 2008/2009 and not long after that I started designing with Photoshop and PSP. Since then I've learned a lot about digiscrapping and creating my own layouts, albums and kits. I've had many breaks from scrapping, but somehow I always find my way back.

  17. Hi - I'm Karry and I live in Montana. I have done traditional scrapbooks for some time and have only recently started scrapping digitally. I initially joined Pixelscrapper for the papers because I thought there were so many nice collections. I would print them out and use them in my own layouts or in mini-albums that I like to make. I've been using Photoshop for awhile but mainly just for photo editing. I have learned so much from the tutorials on this site and that is actually what started me scrapping digitally...so, THANKS PIXELSCRAPPER. I have a 1 1/2 year old boy and it seems now I am scrapping more things since I can do it on the computer which is great for our family in the long run. To me doing layouts with children couldn't be any more fun! I LOVE IT!

  18. I love photography and precisely nature photos , with a preference for the dragonflies..so came I to scrapbooking.I live in Belgium.

    On the photo you can see my two helpers by scraboolking: Max the parrot ans Saskia, the yougest dog

  19. Blogger. Content Creator. Digital Influencer. Mom and grandma. Cat and dog mom.

  20. My interest in digital scrapbooking actually started with paper crafting. I used to make cards and 3D items with my cutting machine, but I only did paper scrapbook layouts occasionally as they were very time-consuming. Once I encountered Photoshop Elements and began learning how to scrapbook digitally I was amazed at how fast I could get things done! Soon I started wondering how to make the beautiful elements and papers I was purchasing, and my venture into designing began. I spend more time designing than scrapbooking now, as my four children are almost grown and not interested in having their photos taken!

  21. I am 28 and live in Dunedin, NZ with my hubby, our son Riley, born in March 2010, and another boy on the way, due July 30. Am back into the work force after many years as a stay at home mum and I am loving the extra cash. Started digi scrapping when my boy was only weeks old and still love it. My current favourite is pocket scrapping and I have been printing and collecting journal cards, ready to go :)

  22. Hello everyone
    I am Sharon (aka Shaz515) I am 56 years old and live in beautiful Western Australia on a lovely little 4 acre property in a sweet little country town. I am married with 3 adult children and 3 adult step-children, and 16 gorgeous grandchildren aged from 6 months to 17 years old. I started paper scrapping in 2006, but then discovered digiscrapping 5 years ago and have been in love with it ever since

  23. Hi! I'm Lori and live in Maine, where I'm a mom to 3 boys, age 20, 17 and 16 and an 11 year old black lab named Sadie. I have been teaching 6th grade for almost 30 years.... wow! (Just typing that makes me sound crazy lol!) I also work part time at a local gym. I have been digiscrapping for a little more than 10 years now and absolutely love it. I still dabble a bit in paper scrapping, mostly making cards... just can't quite bring myself to give up all of those supplies that I spent years accumulating, even though I never used half of them. ;) Of course, I will never use all the digi stuff I've got either... but at least it doesn't take up much space to store! :)

  24. Hello, I am so happy to bring you my PU products. I hope that you get much enjoyment out of them as I did in creating them.

    I want to thank everyone who contributes on a daily basis to this wonderful website that Marisa and Jordan so cleverly designed. Their brilliance, love and passion for the craft brings so much joy to so many people. I'm glad that I can now be a part of this incredible journey.

    Thank you.

  25. Digi scrapper and designer since 2008, living in France with partner and 2 sons.

  26. Hi.
    I live in Denmark and in my spare time i play around in my Paint Shop Pro X8, sewing and taking care of my horses.
    I'm married to a wonderful man and my 2 children have their own families now. (And i'm a grandma now)
    I started using PSP about 10 years ago.
    Thanks for having me here

  27. Hi, I'm LaDonna! I have no formal training and all of my experience has been self taught. I have always been passionate about anything/everything involving art, creativity, and expression from writing to photography and scrapbooking, and graphic design. I enjoy Photoshop Elements 15. I'm not an expert. Not a beginner. I'm somewhere in between and continually learning something new daily. I use other programs as well as they all have different attributes that I like for different projects. I use Craft Artist 2 Pro as well as Affinity Designer. I am committed to eventually mastering Photoshop Illustrator!

  28. New to scrapbooking, looking for inspiration.

  29. I have been married for almost 38 years, have 3 adult children, nine grandchildren, and two hairless (Chinese Crested) dogs.

    Many of my designs can be mixed and matched so be sure to check out my previous uploads. If you love my designs, I am happy. If you don't love them, I am still happy because I am doing what I enjoy.

  30. I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada with my husband and our daughter. I homeschool and in my spare time I like blogging, quilting and graphic design.

  31. Hello! I am a single mom, as my hubby was killed. I am the mother of 2 very special autistic children (a daughter who is 14 and a son who is 9), who are my world! Their strength against the adversity they face in their lives every single day, just trying to do simple things we often take for granted, warms my heart and fills my soul. They are the best part of me!
    I also make digital scrap kits and commercial use images for other designers to use in their own scrap kits! I am known as the designer "Whisper in the Wind." I enjoy anything creative, even though scrap-booking is my favorite. It is like a meditation for me..I can get lost in my creating. I also enjoy crocheting, singing, exercising, cooking, and my paleo 310 lifestyle.
    I try to be a light, and an inspiration to those around me. I try to give more than I take. I try to be a good friend, and a good mom. My hope, is that when I leave this world, my mark on it will be a positive one..and maybe, just maybe, I will leave my little piece of the world a bit better than I found it.

  32. My name is Gonda, I'm from Germany, married for over 25 years with two wonderful kids.
    I started designing with PSP 7 a long time ago. In the beginning I made stationary for e-mails and tags. Then I switched to photo collages for print and stuff like calenders and photobooks but I was often unhappy with the background papers and elements included in the software because I'm really picky about matching colours. That's why I started to design my own papers, elements and kits for digital scrapbooking. I design just for fun but love to share what I made with others.
    So thank you very much for downloading and I hope you will have fun, too.

  33. Hello I'm Charlotte and I'm a digital scrapper for several years and still learning everyday. I use PSE14 en PS CS6 for my LO's and trying to make some digital supplies for myself. I also love art-journaling, hybrid and digital.

  34. I'm a mom of four small children with a love of family history and genealogy, so learning to digital scrapbook works perfectly for me by allowing me to share images of my babies and to share family history with relatives.

  35. My name is Nili, I'm 36 years old (OH MY GOD I'm soooo old lol), I'm from Israel, married to Andrey for 6 years (we have just celebrated our 6th-anniversary last week!) this is our second marriage for both of us.
    I have 3 sons. 12 & 10 years old son from my first marriage and 5 years little son from my current marriage.

    Since I know my self I loved to design Digital stuff.

    I have always loved shabby chic and bright pastel colors, so most of my designs are related to Shabby & Vintage ideas.

  36. Mostly a graphics dabbler - even gave Blender and mesh a whirl. Mainly do art journal type projects and some digi-scrapping atm.

  37. Mom to 4 awesome kiddos and wife to an amazing husband! I love to digiscrap, journaling, collage, and pretty much anything that lets me get my creative fix. I have a washi tape obsession (talking hundreds of rolls...eek!).

    Aside from all that, I like to design too. It comes and goes as inspiration hits (and the busyness of life slows down). Pixelscrapper has been a huge resource of learning for me. Hope to keep learning as time goes on and scrapbooking evolves. :)

  38. I am new to designing stationary and invitations. I haven't tried my hand at creating my own papers and graphics, but look forward to the day I have photoshop and can learn how to use it. Right now, designing birthday, and other party, invitations is a hobby and as a SAHM it gives me some me time. I get a ton of gratification out of creating something that I know the recipient loves.

  39. I adore digital scrapbooking and sharing the hobby with others. I was instantly hooked on scrapbooking when I began paper scrapping in 2000, after the birth of my son, as it allowed me to record his childhood, which was especially important to me since I'm an adoptee and had no idea of my beginnings until age 34.

    I inadvertently discovered that I had learned the basics for digital scrapbooking after creating graphics to dress up a Yahoo group page. I had drooled over the digital pages, with their brushes and fantastic photo effects, but actually went kicking and screaming into digital scrapbooking because, after all, it COULDN'T look as good as paper, right?

    I threw myself into digital at that time and joined several online digiscrap communities. That led to CTing for designers and shops. I was creating lots of boy pages but found so few kits, and so I began creating what I needed. That progressed to designing kits, and I began selling online in 2009.

    I've dabbled on and off in designing all these years, sharing or selling things I've created for my own pages, since my first goal is to keep up with my own pages, and as you know, we NEVER get caught up! I've become partially disabled in the past two years and am only able to work part time, so I now have more time to design and scrap than I normally do.

  40. I'm a librarian and writer who designs graphics as a hobby.

  41. I live in Central Ohio, USA. I am a mother of 4 awesome kids, 2 boys and 2 girls, ages 20, 17, 15, and 13. I am also becoming a grandmother or "Naani" for the first time in November 2019! I am also engaged to the absolute love of my life, Roy and he has 3 amazing boys, ages 11, 10, and 8, his youngest was actually in my preschool class when he was 3.

    I graduated with an Associates degree in nutrition in May 2016. I am a Team Lead at a preschool until I find my dream job. I have been paper scrapbooking since 2000 and digital scrapbooking since 2006. I also used to design, but went on hiatus during a divorce and then again during my schooling. Hopefully I'm back for good! You may have seen me in other forums as rachelbrein, scarlettcharm or Rachel Martin.

    When I am not making memories, preserving them, sleeping or working, Roy and I are avid Wizards Unite & Pokemon Go enthusiasts, we also love binge watching TV shows and discussing filmography and camera angles and shots, the entire family is a lover of the Harry Potter Universe and all things Marvel, we love all types of music, and I love designing scrapbooking kits and elements. We also love attending live events around town including concerts, live bands, and plays (big and small). The kids often keep us busy with musical instrument lessons, High School Theatre, Softball, Cheerleading etc. We have a large busy family and we love it.

  42. i love photography and have played with it most of my life. i love digi-scrapping layouts and designing too. i'm very thankful for this site and have been using the freebies since 2010-ish :)

  43. I am a teacher and mom of four. I began paper scrapbooking in 1998, digital photography and working with Photoshop in 2010, and I have just begun digital scrapbooking in the past couple of years.

  44. I am a crafter and artist. I love to create something everyday. I love photography, art journaling, and papercrafting. I am currently working at digital scrapbooking. I use Adobe Photoshop CS4.

  45. I am a mother of 2 girls, the first daughter showed me scrapbooking and now I love it. Creative design helps me the bad phase of my illness to master. The the last 25 years I worked in publishing as a media designer.
    Next year I'm 50 and know English only from school, it's bad - sorry!

  46. I'm a happy go-lucky gal from Canada, enjoying life to the fullest now that I've retired from my career as an accountant.

    I have a particular passion for making things from scratch with my own two little hands. In other words... any excuse to give my creative itch a good scratching every now and then !

    Jewelry design, metalsmithing, candle making, and leather work/traditional native beading are my passions of the day that I've managed to turn into a little home business for myself.

    Nature and animals are my inspiration for everything I do, so my creations tend to lean towards using natural materials and earthy colour palettes with plenty of flora and fauna in my designs.

    And now I've discovered the wonderful world of photoshop and digital scrapbooking !

    I'm still quite the rookie when it comes to photoshop, but I'm learning a little bit every day.

    I have a loving supportive husband who gets a good laugh at the endless hours I spend watching Youtube "How-To" videos learning new ways to create more pretties to share with the world.

    Who knew playing on a computer could be so fun?

  47. I have been digitally scrapbooking since about 2008. A few years ago I started designing my own scrapbook kits and posting them for free on my blog. I still post some free things on my blog, and of course I have listed lots of things here on Pixel Scrapper in the Commons section, and most months I participate in the blog train. I do sell kits and templates at three online stores; Berry Applicious, Inspirations of Scrapfriends and Digi Graphic Designs. I am proud to say that I completed a project 52; many of those scraps are posted here. I am married to my high school sweetheart; in 2017 we celebrated our 40th anniversary. I have two sons, and two wonderful daughters-in-law, two granddaughters and one grandson. My profile pic is my oldest granddaughter and myself enjoying some cheek to cheek time and playing with Photo Booth on the computer.

  48. I'm french and I love digiscrap too!

  49. I live in South Africa. I have been digi scrapping for 7 years and I am now totally addicted. I also do designing. My goodies are available at Wilma4Ever and My Memories stores under the design name of Simply Stated Scrap Designs.

    I have been married to my soulmate since 1992. We have 2 sons, a daughter in law, a son in law and 2 gorgeous grand daughters. As well as 3 doggies and 2 kitties to complete the family.

    I CT for Booland Designs, Aimee Harrison Designs.

  50. I love everything about living in the Pacific Northwest. I love to spend free time with my hubby out hiking in the woods, visiting the coast, or sampling every small bakery we can find. A perfect day would be to do all three. The only way to top that would be to bring our grown daughter along for the adventure!

    I've been scrapbooking since 1996 and am now fully addicted to digital scrapbooking. I love reliving the moments that were captured on camera and coming up with designs that bring the stories to life. I am currently working on 2006, determined to get caught up. My goal is to be caught up through 2010 by the end of this year (2018).

  51. Hello! My name is Lorien and I am a thirty-something years-old from São Paulo, Brazil, married for almost a decade, and proud kitten mom.
    I got in contact with Pixel Scrapper before it was the amazing site you´re seeing, when I was looking for some assets for hybrid scrapbooking. I enjoyed it so much that I´m on this site since the closed beta. I was a beginner back then and I learned a lot here, and soon became forum moderator as a way to give a little back. It was because of Pixel Scrapper that I started designing too. It prooved a really useful skill for my small craft business.

  52. Wife and stay-at-home Mom, living in Washington with my husband and son. Our son keeps me on my toes with schedules and sports and such, as does the job of home management.
    I absolutely LOVE hybrid scrapping, making cards, playing around with photography, and having deep conversations with family and friends.

  53. I scrap when I'm not running around after my gorgeous but utterly exhausting little boys. It keeps me sane. Mostly.

  54. I am mom to a ASD 8 year old with LOTS of energy! (: I am passionate about animals!!! I've spent 8 years rescuing dogs and cats in the Detroit and greater area along with helping community cats.

    I am not sure I really know what I am doing. :-P BUT I've learned a lot here at PS and have grown!! I hope to continue to do so. If I can manage to find time I also enjoy reading, gardening and making crafts with burlap (confessed addict here lol). I live in the greater Detroit area with my husband, son and our rescue. If you're considering adding a furry addition to your family please consider adopting a pet in need of a home. Rescued pets make the best pets and I would be happy to talk to anyone about how to search your area. Want to make a bigger impact....foster!! Saving lives! *heart* Thanks for reading. :-)

  55. Hello! My name is Sonia and I love to draw, digital design and, above all, make digital scrap kits!

  56. I am introverted and love the quiet life. Doing my best, to do my best, for God and country. I live in a small farming town in Eastern Oregon since 2013. Previously I had spent 46 years in Alaska and upon retirement, moved to my new forever home. Family is very important to me. We have a small place of six acres, a few fruit trees, a few farm animals, and a few dreams. We love it here and do our best to be an asset to our small community. I volunteer quite a bit in our small church. I teach sunday school crafts, act as the church clerk, church treasurer, track our missionaries around the world, and develop and print out our weekly sunday bulletin.
    I enjoy many hobbies including photography, gardening, crochet, beading, polymer clay, reading and writing. I also love old movies.
    I currently use Photoshop CS6 to design graphics. I enjoy the creative process of designing, and participating in Blog Hops is my favorite design project. I am married to a great guy, and we have a blended family of seven grown children and 14 grandchildren...

  57. Homeschool mom of nine, Marmee (grandmother) to fifteen, author, and scrapbook designer turned Bible journal designer. I love the art journaling mixed-media styles and do some hybrid Bible journaling with Travelers Notebooks.

    I believe Pixel Scrapper is the best value available. I've always admired Marisa Lerin's ingenuity. I love the way the site is set up. Perfect for me to grab an element quickly.

    A Little History

    My biggest passion is the Bible. I've written Bible studies and homeschool studies since the 1990s. I have never paper scrapbooked but I began digital scrapbooking in 2009. In 2011 I began designing my own kits. I shifted my passion for patterns and colors from quilting to scrapbooking. When Shanna Noel introduced the world to Bible journaling in 2014 I knew it was a game-changer for me. That week I began working on Bible journaling kits and combining them with my Bible studies. I love how God gives me the desires of my heart!

    I'm originally from Orlando. Florida. We now live just outside Nashville, Tennessee. My husband is a retired federal agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and Homeland Security. We have one eighteen-year-old son at home. and whenever possible my twenty-year-old Marine is home on leave.

    All my other children are adults, most with children of their own. My thirty-six-year-old daughter when to Heaven in 2014. We moved back to Florida for five years to help with her three sons. Now that they are all over eighteen we moved back to Tennessee to be near the rest of the family. My story is at My Story: Masked to Truefaced – Heart of Wisdomhttp://heartofwisdom.com/blog/my-story-masked-to-truefaced/

    When I am not Bible journaling I'm reading, researching, writing or quilting (almost always with my little five-pound Pomeranian, Arrow, on my lap or by my feet). Life is simpler now that most the children are grown. It has taken me years to learn to not cook for eleven people, but I still feel like laundry is never ending. :) My adult children visit frequently so our home is still like Grand Central Station but there are more quiet times in between.

    Family is my life. Creating and sharing digital art is the frosting on the cake.

  58. Hi :)
    I have been involved in all sorts of crafts and creative ventures my whole life. I was a graphic designer and currently have a lot of fun coloring for a webcomic. I enjoyed paper scrapbooking for years but after moving 13 years ago, and the advent of digital pictures, I lost my way a bit.
    I have several chronic illnesses so I spend a lot of time on the computer and it helps me feel productive and stay in touch with others. I'm involved with animal rescue and have fostered many dogs and some kittens. It's very rewarding to know I helped save a little furry soul but some are hard to let go. Hence my family members include 2 dogs and a cat LOL.
    My boyfriend and I and some family went to the UK and the desire to show off my pictures made me decide to plunge into digital scrapbooking and I'm having a ball! Thank you for such a wonderful community and all those who share a bit of themselves and their work here.

  59. I love everything creative! I'm a planner fanatic, journaller, bible doodler... and sometimes feel like an unorganized MESS! I love creating my own planner stickers and that's why I joined Pixel Scrapper. Looking forward to meeting all you creative geniuses!!

  60. SAHM who loves to be crafty - from making hair bows, creating mixed media paintings for family to learning to sew to make whatever comes to mind. Digital Scrapbook Designer along with other misc paper scrapbook designs. Previously designed under 'Made by Me Inspirations' but have taken that name back for my paper scrapbooking and am now digi designing under 'Meg Scott Studio'. I am a Pinterest junkie and love DIY projects - just need to find the time to finish my personal 'Honey - Me - Do' list.

  61. My experience in the digital graphics industry began a few years ago (2007 or so – does that count?), when I purchased a DSLR camera (Nikon D70s), mostly to capture my growing family and children as they participated in sports. I found myself tweaking the photos and loving it! Then I discovered digital scrapbooking (where I was previously using paper), which progressed into digital design when I couldn't find items I wanted! I really enjoy learning new techniques and designing definitely keeps me on my toes!

    IRL (in real life), I provide IT support. I have previously been an instructor and trainer as well. I do love computers and most things technical and am always up for a good, technical challenge!

    I have been married to my loving husband for 10 years and we have 3 children – ages 10, 17 and 19. Our family has one cat (Kitty), one dog (Hank) and one rabbit (Reese).

  62. I work in Permanent Supportive Housing, helping people exiting homelessness and domestic violence to make a fresh start and have a successful, happy life. I enjoy art journaling, scrapbooking, swimming, playing with my dog, reading, writing, and gardening. I am a Distinguished Toastmaster and enjoy competing in speaking contests.

  63. I am a wife, mother and grandmother, a fiber artist as well as a scrapper, and I have a great passion for lace.

    I am a traditional scrapper at heart, loving to work with the physical products whether making full size layouts, or pocket scrapping.
    I have been exploring the digital side of scrapping more since I've been playing here, but I know I will never give up the other. I often work hybrid projects by printing out items from digital files and incorporating them into my physical layouts.

    I am so thrilled with the community here, and the beautiful kits the talented designers make available on this site.

  64. Recent empty-nester who worked in government for 20+ years. Picked up the digital scrapbooking hobby because of the generations of family pics that need a story.

  65. I'm a disabled single mother of one 17 year old son, Christian. We live in a small town in Illinois, USA. I enjoy digiscrapping, designing digital scrapbook supplies, reading, playing games on my tablet, and spending time with my family.

  66. Hello, I'm a proud mother of 2 beautiful, smart & amazing girls (well teenagers). Around here everyone calls me Lisa Hope..us country folk love to have two names..lol!! When I'm not running here & there to basketball games, track meets, softball games, volleyball games, girl scout meetings & all the many things my 2 are in..I am resting & working on my scrap projects.

    I always have a camera in my hand & have become known as the local photographer around my parts. I snap a shot of everyone & everything I possible can. I am very active in my church & community & keep a strong faith. So all of my time is very well taken up all day & nights.

    I love scrap booking, have for years now. Like everyone, I started with the paper scrapbooks years ago even before my girls were born...but then I found the digital world & I was hooked. Seems like I live on the internet. Sometimes I sit & think what in the world did I use to do when I was younger & the internet wasn't around..lol!! Almost as though the world stops at our house & things just goes crazy when it is down.

    I love sharing what I can. After all the time & money I have put into gathering scrapbooking supplies, both digital & paper, my goal is too help allow others find things easier & faster for their use. I have been designing graphics since 2014, but not in the digi scrapbooking world until 2017.

    I have become known as LEA Art Designs & I do what I do for fun, enjoyment, making new friends & relaxing. I can only pray that I become good enough, even if it's just a small bit, as all of the amazing designers here.

    Anyway, I am excited about all the new people I am going meet & the new adventures I will find here. Everyone have a blessed & happy day...BIG HUGS to all!!

  67. I have been married to Tod for 39 years. We have three children and five grandchildren. I am a teacher and have taught for 31 years.

  68. Hi everyone!

    My name is Julie and I live in Massachusetts with my husband and 2 rescue dogs. River is a Pit Bull and Brook is a Chihuahua. We moved to Mass. 3 1/2 years ago for my husbands job. We are both huge animal lovers, especially dogs.

    We have on daughter who is 28, married and living in Texas. I am hoping soon to catch up to all my friends who already have grandchildren.

    I started using PSP about 15 years ago and then in 2008 I started using Photoshop. I owned a digital store for about 4 years and lost my pc 2 years ago. I recently bought a new one and I have been right back at creating.

    Although I do not scrapbook myself I love to create the items for those who do. I also get a lot of my inspiration from other artist. And scrap booking is certainly an art.

    I am very glad to be here and anxious to get up to 50 points so I can start sharing with everyone.

  69. I'm an author, Artist, and Evil Genius, living in Southern NH.

    Domestic violence survivor and women's advocate.

  70. I am a full time working wife and mother of three sons, ages 22, 21, and 8. I love all manner of crafting; From digital scrap-booking to tangible mixed media projects. I love to learn from other people and get exposed to the huge world of art.

    Creativity is in my blood. I have always sketched pictures since I was a kid, and now with social media (Thanks YouTube, Pinterest, Google images, and PIXELSCRAPPER, etc....) I have become so overwhelmed with what project(s) to do for the day. I don't even know where to start. Should I make cards or make my own clay? Or should I design a wall hanging for the living room. I have become ridiculously indecisive with what I want to make.
    Also, I have become a craft hoarder. From paints, to dies and other cutting machines, to scrapbook paper and other designer card stock and embellishments, I have turned my little kitchen nook into my craft studio. I'm surprised my husband hasn't told me to get rid of all of the craft supplies....ie..clutter.

    My craft collection addiction is partially what made me want to learn more about digital scrap booking. It is all new for me, but I have invested in the Adobe Photoshop application and I have scoured YouTube on learning different techniques in layering scrapbook images, pages, brushes, and so on.

    When I stumbled accross Pixelscrapper I was elated that you could get so many kits and bundles to make what ever you had in mind...and more!

    Now I can go to the next level of design by doing it digitally.

  71. married, stay-at-home mom of 18 yr old Kaleb (Asperger's), 3 inside kitties ~ love to read, digital scrapbook, quilting, cross-stitch, jewelry making and sometimes do various other crafts

  72. November 4, 2017: With regards to my designs here at Pixel Scrapper, I've made a decision (though, it is possible that I could change my mind again - I'm good at that), to concentrate on updating (for quality) all of my older products to upload to the commons before starting any new designs (like blog trains, etc.)...hoping to instead catch up on my own scrapping needs when I get the urge to be creative.
    ------------------------------------------------------------

    Married (to the best man in the world- I truly believe that!), mother of 2 boys, also a bereaved parent...my first child was born with a severe seizure disorder which profoundly stunted his development. He was fully disabled, both physically and cognitively, throughout his short life of 13 years. My second son is over twenty years and still lives at home with his father and I.

    I've been designing digital scrapbook products since 2009 and although I was a designer at a store for 3 years starting in 2010, I didn't like having to work so hard for so little payback; I much prefer doing it for the joy it gives me and others; I was so very pleased when I found this site and read their manifesto...exactly what I have always felt. I grew-up in a "creative" home; my father was a professional artist and photography hobbyist; my mother was always doing crafty things, she taught me sewing, crocheting, knitting, etc. I worked with computers for years before they became household items, so, when I discovered digital scrapbooking in 2008; it was a natural fit for me.

    In January, 2008 I discovered that I had only 3 months until my niece's wedding shower and since I wanted to create a genealogical scrapbook as my gift, I knew there would be no way I could meet that deadline using the traditional paper scrapping method... so off I went searching for a way to do it digitally...that's when I discovered the world of digital scrapbooking. Like so many others before me, I was immediately hooked on this past-time. By April 2013, I decided to give up selling my designs and return to giving them away freely. My original plans were to also create some tutorials on the subject as I also have a professional background in developing 'Computer Based Training' BUT as what often happens with PLANS, Life can get in the way...in July, 2013, I survived a CVA (aka stroke). Even after months in hospital acute rehabilitation and a rehabilitation nursing facility, I am now a left-sided hemiplegic (left side of my body is paralyzed - head to feet, everything left of center). Makes many daily activities quite frustrating but at least I have this creative activity to use as an outlet for those negative feelings. ;-)

  73. My name is Kayl, pronounced like the leafy green kale. I'm 27 and living in Sweden with my husband Fredrik. We had our first surviving little one, Alexander, born Feb 4th, 2018!

    I'm still not sure I know what I'm doing when I create kits but I do enjoy trying and experimenting. :) Hopefully you enjoy my creations and can use them to scrap beautiful memories!

  74. Just another scrapper, trying her best to get through life and keep her crafty hobby alive.

    I come from Indonesia, but I often spend my vacations in neighbouring Singapore where a good portion of my mother's family lives. I saw my first scrapbook store there but I never pursued scrapbooking until a store opened up in a mall nearby.

  75. Hi! I'm excited to be a part of the Commons! I'm a wife, mom of 2, and I am also a home-based business owner - I'm a digital designer, but I also make wax melts, soap, and other bath and body products (company name is Creative Scentworks).

    I do sell my designs on Etsy and at another online shop, but I also enjoy being able to give some away for free. I hope you enjoy what I've posted here!

  76. A mini-biography: Born and raised in the upper Midwest, lived in both rural and urban areas, disabled at age 30, have been in eastern Tennessee since 2009. Divorced, but dating an incredible man that I hope to spend the next 50-60 years with. I have a son who'll be 24 this year, who's a US Navy submariner.

    I've been collecting scrap freebies for a while, making layouts for my photography scrapbook and more recently a toddler niece. I tend to be sort of seasonal with my interests, as photography in the cold aggravates fibromyalgia, and too much sunlight triggers lupus flareups--so I scrap a lot in summer and winter and enjoy spring and fall outdoors, often with a camera in hand. If I'm not shooting photos, training my mobility dog, or designing (mostly commercial-use items for my shop), I'm probably either watching anime or playing Steam games or one of several tabletop RPGs with my gaming group.

  4. Hi.....
    Scrapbooking is my passion about 9 years I think.
    It let's my mind enter a kind of fantasy world.
    At the end of 2016 I started as designer of Dutch Dream Designs

  5. I'm Christina, I'm Greek and I live in France. I love travelling and photography. I found about digital scrabooking very recently and I have started creating a series of pages to keep in memory our travels. I'm very happy to get inspired by other people's work. I hope other members feel the same about mine :p

  6. I am a lunch-lady by day, a waitress by night, and a digital designer 24/7. I love digital art, Pixel Scrapper, photography, board games, and relaxing!

  7. I am an English psychologist and social worker, recently retired. In my professional life I had a special interest in people with autistic spectrum disorders.
    I love patterns. I make a lot of kaleidoscopes with Corel PaintShopPro, which can also be tiled to make scrapbooking papers. I also make scrapbooking papers and elements from anything I find.

  8. Under construction....

  9. mother of 2 grown-up childeren; my hobbies are taking pictures, traveling, scrapping and reading. I work full-time as a Home Care Nurse, so I'm on the road a lot!

  10. Married 23 years
    3 College-Aged boys
    2 Dogs
    Currently live in Dallas, TX area
    Scrapbooker, Cardmaker, Crochet

  11. I love to digital scrapbook. It is just hard to find the time. I work fultime and have to children ages 6 and 2. Mostly I have made Birthday invitation and Christmas cards.

  12. Love to scrap, love to read and a hoader or pens an cute notebooks!

  13. I've been scrapping in one form or another for most of my life. Switched to digital about 5 years ago and I'm in love! Unfortunately things like laundry, cooking, cleaning and running kids from heck to breakfast prevent me from doing it as often as I would like. Somedays, it's cheerios for dinner just so I can scrap!

  14. I'm a photographer who made the jump (off the deep end!) into digi scrapping and couldn't be happier. Leaping before I look is apparently my M.O. and works for me, as evidenced by making a creative team within a month of joining Pixel Scrapper. (Home sweet home!)

    I'm happily married to my redder half, who has finally accepted that my brood of hedgehogs follows me everywhere I go. (Hooray!) Our little balls of quilly love feature heavily in my layouts.

    I went to college for Environmental Studies (hence my love of digi scrapping) and tend to have a lot of nature-inspired layouts.

    I have fibromyalgia and it SUCKS! Scrapbooking is apparently good therapy for that.

    I also have purple hair, some awesome tattoos, an industrial and a sad, lonely dermal anchor.

  15. I live on a ranch and every day I’m amazed at the beauty God has created. While I’m out walking or doing chores, is when I see ideas for my cards or themes for an album. I started out a traditional scrapper in 2000 and switched to digital in 2005 and love it!! I still like the "touch and feel" of paper so I make cards to fill that need. I use many of my digital supplies for my cards so I think it's a "win-win"!

  16. Hello! I am a single mom, as my hubby was killed. I am the mother of 2 very special autistic children (a daughter who is 14 and a son who is 9), who are my world! Their strength against the adversity they face in their lives every single day, just trying to do simple things we often take for granted, warms my heart and fills my soul. They are the best part of me!
    I also make digital scrap kits and commercial use images for other designers to use in their own scrap kits! I am known as the designer "Whisper in the Wind." I enjoy anything creative, even though scrap-booking is my favorite. It is like a meditation for me..I can get lost in my creating. I also enjoy crocheting, singing, exercising, cooking, and my paleo 310 lifestyle.
    I try to be a light, and an inspiration to those around me. I try to give more than I take. I try to be a good friend, and a good mom. My hope, is that when I leave this world, my mark on it will be a positive one..and maybe, just maybe, I will leave my little piece of the world a bit better than I found it.

  17. Hi all! My name is Jen and I am a hybrid crafter. I love to travel and create in my spare time.

    Currently I call Massachusetts my home but have lived all over the US. I've been in the medical field for over 10 years and couldn't imagine doing anything else.

    I am proud to part of the 2019 Everyday Explorer & Sahin Designs Creative Teams.

    Happy scrapping :)

  18. I'm a nice married Jewish consultant out of Arizona. I have been scrapbooking since I was a teenager, but only digital scrapbooking for a short while.

    Outside of scrapbooking, I do cross-stitch and I bake, and I spend time with my wonderful wife and our four fur children, hang out with friends and take part in temple events.

  19. I am a substitute school teacher with a wonderful teenage son and amazing husband. I have been paper scrapbooking since 2002 and digi scrapbooking in 2013. I love traveling all over the US and visiting Disney parks.

  20. I am a retired teacher. At the moment I am grandma-schoolbus as well as grandma-run around to after-school activities for a delightful granddaughter! I like to scrap - when time permits.

  21. I'm a Radiation Therapist by trade, and a creator of pretty things by night! We are in small town Illinois... I am married to an amazing man and have two incredible step kiddos... Gabe who is 17 and Avery who is 15. They are my favorite subjects to scrapbook, along with my niece and nephews... and my cats - Roxie, Oliver, and Odie! I love to read, knit, Pinterest, bake, and cook. I sound so domestic, but I don't feel like I am at all. I LOVE the St. Louis Cardinals and the St. Louis Blues... we are a very sports oriented family. I love musicals/broadway and going to the movies... I love to listen to Dave Ramsey's radio show, and I love the Food Network and Discover ID (total guilty pleasure!) So, that's me in a nutshell! Oh, and I'm a coffee addict... and trail mix... Okay, that's it :) I think...

  22. I am a teacher and mom of four. I began paper scrapbooking in 1998, digital photography and working with Photoshop in 2010, and I have just begun digital scrapbooking in the past couple of years.

  23. I'm a full-time, homeschooling mom, new designer and blogger. I love my family like crazy, making crafty things and anything pink. And I love telling people about how much God loves them. ♥

  24. I am a mother of twelve and grandmother of eighteen. I got into digital scrapbooking in 2005 and started designing not long after that. I am presently on a hiatus from designing but am enjoying creating pocket life cards and clusters and such at Plain Digital Wrapper. I love all things scrapbooking and am planning my dream scrapbook room for the near future. I ride a Honda Shadow motorcycle when I am not scrapbooking.

  25. I love everything creative! I'm a planner fanatic, journaller, bible doodler... and sometimes feel like an unorganized MESS! I love creating my own planner stickers and that's why I joined Pixel Scrapper. Looking forward to meeting all you creative geniuses!!

  26. My hobby is photography. I have a lot of pictures of my family and it's so fun playing with them. I'm happy that I found pixelscrapper.

  27. Married mom of 3 grown kids, Grandma of 3, Mom to 4 furbabies, Great-Aunt to 5 sweethearts. I've been married for 20 years, currently unable to work due to health issues. I have many many interests & hobbies, crafts being no. 1 on the list.

    I envy all of you designers, you all do such beautiful work, each & every one of you!!
