Scrap Girls' Digital Scrapbooking Team Member Elisha Barnett
Digital Scrapbook Layout Artist
Elisha and her family live in Reading, Pennsylvania. She and her husband Steve have two adult children: Andrew and Katie, and two mixed breed pups named Pippin and Isobel. Elisha serves part-time as administrative assistant to a pastor at a local church, at her own home congregation in committee work and teaching, and in the community, helping to organize semi-annual spiritual renewal weekend retreats.
Elisha has been exploring her creative and artistic side through crafts ever since she can remember. As a child, she sewed and crocheted clothes for her dolls, embroidered, and cross-stitched. After becoming a wife and mother, she continued to sew for herself and her children, experimented with oil painting, and taught herself to knit and bead. When she began scrapbooking, it was in conjunction with her new love – the computer. She created her own titles and stickers using her computer and was always on the lookout for journaling fonts. But when she and her family moved from Memphis, Tennessee to Reading in 2006, all that paper and adhesive got packed up in a box and set aside.
In 2007, she felt the call to create a scrapbook-style prayer journal, but before unpacking all of her old papers, she looked on the Internet to see what kind of faith-oriented supplies she could find. That search led her directly to Scrap Girls. She dug out an old copy of Adobe Photoshop Elements, read the free tutorials in the Scrap Girls University, and got right to work. She hasn't stopped since!
Elisha is thrilled and honored to be working with the Design Team at Scrap Girls. She hopes to inspire others as she was inspired by this wonderfully talented, caring community.
