Hi. My name is Gail. I am a pensioner and live with my daughter, her husband and 3 children. I live in Pretoria in South Africa. I have been scrapbooking for about 7 years now and thoroughly enjoy it. I have always wanted to design my own kits, but did not know how or have the confidence. I started the design a kit challenge by Annette and have learnt so much from her and all the other ladies, I have now also got confidence to try and do designing.

Welcome everyone!

@Gail: So glad you've been enjoying the designer challenge!

Hello everyone! My name is Jennyfuur and I am 37 years old. My Sweetheart and I just bought a home in the middle of nowhere Utah a year ago. We both grew up in Utah and we were lucky enough to leave for about five years and live in a travel trailer on an island in the Puget Sound in Washington. It is so freeing to get rid of almost everything you own and live so minimally. We learned a lot and changed our mindset and outlook on life.

Now that we are back in Utah we are finding many new adventures and places. We have one son who is 17. We lost one of our fur babies right before we moved and one a few months ago, but we just adopted a new furry bundle of joy. She is about 14 weeks old and a heeler golden doodle mix. It is weird to be back in the puppy stage after 15 years since the last one!

I have been scrapbooking for most of my life and digital scrapbooking for probably ten+ years. I have been enjoying Pixel Scrapper for 3 years now. I use GIMP for everything I do.

Welcome Jennyfuur! So glad to have you here.

HI everyone 👋! My name is Crystal and I am 44 years old. I have been scrapbooking on and off for half of my life. I am married to my best friend and high school sweetheart now for 23 years. My children are ages 23, 21, and 15. I have recently started scrapbooking / drawing again after being on a hiatus (due to taking care of my family 😊). I use Procreate, Photoshop, and Illustrator. I am so happy to have found this website - It is AMAZING!

Hello, my name is Marie Lee. I am a 77 yr—old retired school teacher. I have enjoyed all the information you talented people have shared. I want to try some of the things I have been reading about here. I live in Estes Park, Colorado half the year and south Georgia the rest of the year.

Thank you! I love being here!

Welcome everyone! We are glad to have you here.

Hi, my name is Brandie. I live in Oklahoma. I am 46 years old. I have been married for 24 years. We have a 19 year old son & a 14 year old daughter. I started scrapbooking shortly after getting married. I create most of my pages these days in the project life app.

I can not remember if I have introduced myself previously, so I will add a short note here. I am a retired accountant and now spend a lot of time with my cameras. I have enjoyed seeing and downloading the creative designs in the commons. The gallery pages are always inspirational. I am looking forward to the holidays!

Welcome everyone! Thanks for saying hi.

Hello everyone!

I go by Antin — strange name yes but my name nonetheless! I'm completely new at digital scrapbooking, in fact I joined because I found these beautiful textures I wanted to use for a drawing. I do digital art (my profile image is a little doodle of me in fact smiley ), so I love finding patterns and pngs online to spice up a drawing, but I also do real life traditional art, journaling, creative reading and writing, and am in college as a STEM major. Happy to be here!

Welcome Antin! Glad to have you here.

My name is Beth and I have been playing around with PaintShop Pro for over 20 years and I really enjoy my time doing it. I have created websites and various things for my writing. It's a cathartic thing for me.

I also love cats and horses. I am married and have 4 kids and 4 grandkids. I also live in the MidWest.

Hello Everyone!

My name is Alicia but I usually go by Alice online. I've been an artist of many mediums since the first time I could pick up a crayon. I studied Graphic Design and Visual Arts in college, mostly learning on Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator then. I've also used Corel and Paint Shop Pro in my earlier years. I love mixed media and scrapbooking with "real" materials, but since having a baby last year I have yet to gain back a lot of my free time to do that yet. I stumbled upon this community while looking for vectors and whatnot to make my own wedding invitations (yeah we did it backwards lol, thanks Covid). I love this idea and hopefully can finish my invitations on time, and then get to play around with more ideas like making digital scrapbook pages of the baby to send to relatives, etc.

Thanks everyone! Nice to meet you!

Welcome everyone! Thanks for saying hello.

Good luck with the invitations Alice!

Hi. My name is Theresa but I go by Terri. I'm 62 years old and have a full time job, 3 adult children, 14 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild, 5 cats, and 2 desert tortoises. On my time off, I stay busy maintaining my Memorial website. When I get the chance I come to digital scrapbooking to find fun graphics to play around with on Paintshop Pro.

Hello everyone,
My Name is Mathea and I am a 25 year old scrapbooker from Germany. I am very new to the digital world of scrapbooking. But because I recently got a Silhouette and a good printer, I am now exploring what can be done with digital products for hybrid scrapbooking. I would also love to make some designs myself, but I feel like that will be a project for some other time, as I have a little newborn at home.
Thanks for this awesome resource!

Welcome! Thanks for saying hello smiley

Hi everyone, my name is Jo
I started trying to get my head around electronic scrapbooking almost 2 years ago now when I was blessed with 2 new grand daughters. So much photography is electronic these days I have no other option than to give it a go.

I am a 65 year old grandma learning what I can do with in this new medium is exciting. I haven't learnt how to share my creations yet but hoping to do so soon. I would love some tips on how to share.

I live in regional New South Wales in Australia "Country Music Capital" Tamworth.

I'm always excited to learn new skills

You are one very busy Grandma
Hello - you made me smile when I read that you are 62 yrs old, still working full time and have 14 grandchildren, and a great grandchild, cats and a couple of tortoises. A very busy lady


Hi. My name is Tina & I live in a small village in Western NY. We/I chose here because it snows A LOT and I'm 1 town away from the birthplace of Lucille Ball and all the places dedicated to her.

I am a full time reseller. I do special effects make up year round as well.

I am a mom to 1 fur baby and 2 of the neighborhood strays adopted us so they are here at night and when weather is bad.

I do many different types of crafts but my favorite is painting on phone cases and canvas.

Welcome Jo & Tina! Thanks for saying hello.

Hello crafty friends!

I go by Joya in the online world (it's a nickname).

I have been playing in digital scrapbooking for a year or maybe a little longer. I love creating collage art and scrap pages in a variety of styles.

I have two children and two fur grandchildren. I am an animal lover and animal rights activist.

I worked in social work for many years and am now enjoying some time to myself. Digital scrapbooking and Photoshop are two of my favorite hobbies. My other hobbies include: coffee and tea drinks, reading, journal writing and taking online courses (I love to learn).

I am loving this website and hope to make some scrapping friends.

Hello I am a physical therapist with a creative hobby of preserving memories with digital journaling and scrapbooking

Hi, I am older than dirt, played around with PSP since the late 1980's. I can still only do basic stuff in there, and I've always wanted to learn more and be able to present my photos as scrapbook pages. I've been venturing out and learning some new things. I work in a church office and do a bunch of creative slides for announcements. I can't wait until next summer to retire so I will have much more time to be creative. I'[ll be working on learning more and make some scrapbook pages with my grandkids! Thank you! Have a great day! smiley

I am south of you in a small town in Western PA! smiley

Hello everyone -
I was pretty sure to have introduced myself, but I can't seem to find my introduction (might be the result of a tricky brain that thought did something when it did not!lol). So, here I go (again, or not).
My name is Mariana, I am 50, mother of 2 (a 15 year old girl and a 11 year old boy) from Rio de Janeiro. I have been doing traditional scrapbooking for quite a while now, but always flirted with digital. Along the past 14 years I have been collecting elements from so many places and stashing them in my hard drive and only now, due to a practical matter, have decided to venture on some digiscrap.
I am a Clinical and Educational Psychologist who drifted away from the profession and ended up working as a photographer. With middle age crisis came a desire to explore new territories, hence the digital scrapbooking... but I also became a Judo Green belt and a horse show jumping adventurer!
I look forward to meeting the awesome artists in this group!

Hi everyone! My name is Jamie, I'm 52 and live in a small college town in western Oklahoma. I am married to a wonderful man and we have two children, a 30 year old daughter and a 15 year old son. We have two beautiful grand children ages 5 and 3. I work in education (I have worked for the same program for 31 years!) and plan to retire in another 5 years.

I've been scrapbooking for for about 25 years, most of those years using PaintShop. I'm self-taught and though I would love to use Photoshop, I feel too old to invest so much time learning a new program. I started out paper scrapping and was overwhelmed with keeping up with all of my stash. After about a year, I discovered digital and have NEVER looked back.

Other than scrapbooking, I love photography, reading, and baking (occasionally cooking - but it comes around so often and tends to feel more like a chore most of the time). I am really enjoying all of the kits from these talented ladies!

I'm Victoria (not Vicky, Vics or any other short form)
Keen photographer, recently introduced to digital scrapbooking and starting to get a feel for whats possible smiley
