Hello everyone - I've been a member for quite sometime but haven't been very active. I'm really getting back into hybrid scrapbooking and planning so just wanted to say Hi and introduce myself!

I am happy to admit that I’m addicted to scrapbooking and have been hooked ever since my husband told me about a little store called Archivers in 2005. My main topics to scrap are our family including my adorable little daughter, and our travels across the world. I am primarily a paper scrapbooker and planner but do some digital and hybrid layouts.

I am a full time working mom. My main career is as a Controller for a large homebuilder but I am also a Close to my Heart consultant and love teaching classes and using the amazing kits, coordinating papers and ink and the fabulous stamps that CTMH sells.

My style is simple and uncluttered with a focus on the photos, as I’m an avid photographer also. I love large photos on my layouts and using paper, various tools, inks, paints, stamps and my wonderful Cricut machine to help tell my layout’s story. I am always on the lookout for new techniques to use and love teaching new techniques to others. I find inspiration throughout daily life and love using sketches, scrapbook magazines and online galleries for new ideas and techniques.

You will find lots of inspiration and examples of my work on my website which is all linked up in my profile, Scrapbook Techniques and I hope to be sharing more of my hybrid work here using the new lines that Marisa is coming out with on the planners which I have just fallen in love with.

Happy Scrappin'

Hello,
My name is Gerry of Flutterbygraphics.
Nice to meet everyone.
I love in Northern rivers, NSW, Australia.
A beautiful area. Mountains and sea and rainforest all in one area.
I am a mum of two children aged 17 and 9, I run school from home through a distance education school, my son is graduating soon and he is a web developer and programmer. My daughter is following in my footsteps it seems and loves to draw and design. I am a retired early childhood educator and I have T10-T12 incomplete paraplegia. I love to design, play music-pian, write songs and do choir, beach, kayaking, (working on adaptive kayaking) my inspiration comes from the wonderfully full life I have led so far and am still living (slight hiccup in 2016 when I had my SCI and leanrt to walk again) I have a support site for people living with spinal cord injury from conus/cauda equina) and I have a store with TPT. I love to read too and just read Sam Blooms Heartache and Birdsong.

I love your name! Hi Autumn:)

Hello,
my name is Christie. I live in a small village in the east of the Netherlands. Married and proud to be a mam of two teenages. I like to take pictures and process them in a digital photo album. I regularly get nice inspiration from digital scrapbook, which makes my pages look a lot nicer recently. Thank you so much for that.

Hey there! My name is Stephanie and I have been digital scrapbooking since my 21 year old son was a baby! I started out with paper scrapping, but after a search on the internet, my husband ever so gently made the point that this type of scrapping was far more economical then paper. He was right…and I am hooked! For most of my scrapbooking career, I used templates and kits….then I found Project Life, which is a scrapping app that uses cards. I stopped using a lot of outside cards, up until now. I have decided that I miss the creativity of adding elements to my pages. So…when my good friend Teresa told me about this place….I had to check it out and I am so glad I did!

I forgot to mention that I am old…lol…and I live in Toronto, Ontario, Canada… smiley

Thanks everyone for saying hello! It's great to have so many new faces.

Thank you for sharing , this has given me a new look at digi scrapbooking. What you said about what to do with all the paper and then to be able to create paper, elements, etc just kinda hit me. My husband and I choose not to travel right now and there are no sb stores around our area smiley . This has me giving digi SB another more serious look at again. Again thank you!

Welcome Cheryl!

Hello, I am a born and raised Arizona Desert Rat. I grew up with a mom who was always up to something crafty and encouraged me to explore the realm of creativity. I am curious by nature and learning something new has always been a big thing with me so when a friend introduced me to rubber stamping and paper crafts so many many moons ago, I fell into the rabbit hole and never crawled out!

I mostly make cards using both physical & digital stamps, papers and elements. I have done some scrapbooking but this is not my main focus for paper crafting.

A friend recently told me about your site and so far I am loving what I see! Thanks so much!

Thanks for saying hello Cara! I look forward to seeing some of your cards.

Thanks Marisa!

Hi Marisa!!!! Can't wait to learn more to use on Mt digital planner!!!!

Hi Cara!!! My mom was the same way always into crafts. I learned to crochet at 29 yrs and sewing at 38!!! It took me all of 10 mins to fall in love with both!!! I run a sewing/crochet business now and doing great with it!!!

Amber

Hi!!! Where have you traveled to?? We want to travel so bad!!!!

Hi, I'm Jen. I've been digiscrapping since 2010 and it's really my only crafty hobby. My husband and I just moved to Kentucky with our cat Tabby and adopted two senior dogs, Sophie and Daisy. I also have an awesome stepson who's away in college.

Hi, I'm Maureen but everyone calls me Moe - in fact if you call me Maureen I will think you are angry with me. I live in a smal town of 7,000 in Southern Ontario, Canada. I moved here after growin up in Toronto and then living in Ottawa so it was quite a change to live in a small town. I have 2 sons and 1 daugther, all have families of their own. So, I have 3 small grandchildren, AJ is 8, Caleb is 3 and Lily is 1. My older 2 grandchildren are Justin, 31 and Riley, 29. I also have a cat named Mittens.

I started scrapbooking traditionally about 15 years ago but it just got to be too much cleaning everything up after each time I scrapped, so I tried digital. There was no turning back - I loved it and still do. I am on 14 Creative Teams so I honestly scrap from about 9 a.m. til 4 p.m. most days. As long as I have flowers, foliage and a butterfly in the kit - I am happy. I try to put butterflies on each of my pages. I am definately trying new things this year with using brushes, paints, splatters etc. a lot more and am liking the results.

I also love to read, do crossword puzzles, Wordle and be with family as much as I can.

Welcome Jen and Moe! Thanks for saying hello.

Hello All👋🏻 I am fairly new to digital scrapbooking found it thru digital planning. Downsizing to tiny living and thrilled to find I can be creative without all the stuff that just won't fit our new lifestyle. Still learning and excited to create with such amazing art.

Hello everyone, my name is Barbara, my nickname is "BabsY" which is what I use when I sign my art pieces. I have my hands into everything from paper, clay, cotton, plaster, paint, glue & charcoal ... I just love creating and a lot of times I mix them all up while I make my scrapbooks/journals. I also love working in my garden.

I'm a retired Dod Employee, spent 6 years in the Marine Corps and left when I was a Sergeant. I currently reside in Waukegan, IL for the last 30+ years. I'm originally from Pennsylvania and I sure do miss my mountains. None of those here in Illinois ... lol. I love animals, nature and am an earthy type of individual. I love participating and learning from others and believe you are never too old to learn from someone with like interests.

I've been married for 46 years where I met my husband while we were both stationed at Quantico, VA. We have 4 fur babies. 3 Dogs named Gibo (Cavalier King Charles), Briget (West Highland Terrior), and the newest member named Frijjo (pronounced Freyo, who is a 7 month Keeshound). Then we have our mighty Main Coon, named Maxwell, who puts all the pups in their places. He reigns the domain with a swat of his might clawless paws.

That's me!

Hello Everyone

I am Julia, wife, mother to 2 and grandmother of 3. My eldest grandson is 19 and the youngest is 4 months. I first started digital scrap booking more than 10 years ago but managed to distract myself with other things (writing a book, doing a PhD, learning to compose music etc).

I have decided to return to scrap booking as a creative outlet that forces me to learn Affinity Designer since I don't wish to keep paying Adobe's fees.

I look forward to getting to know you all over time

Welcome Jane!

Hello! My name is Natalia, I am a designer from Russia. I love scrapbooking. I used to use paper and paint. I missed flowers and butterflies, cards and other decorations. So I switched to digital scrapbooking. I now like to create photo albums, notebooks, journals... I create digital and traditional scrapbooking. smiley

Welcome Jane! Digital is great!

My name is Amber. I am a mom of 4 and 30 years old. Graphic design has always been a passion and something I get lost in doing. When i get started, i can't stop. I just recently started saving my designs and putting a portfolio together. I am looking into different options for selling my graphics and being part of a close community!
