'Ello all! I'm Audra, SAHM to my babies: Duncan (4), Keegan (3), Siobhan (1, pronounced shivawn), and Braedan (due Christmas Day, lucky us, lol!) and wife to Matthew (4 yrs.)

 

I love: all the obvious things like my family and being a SAHM (even when Keegan dumps the salad dressing on the floor and swims in it...). I also love scrapping, taking pictures (I won't go so far as to say what I do is photography , it's kind of more point, click and hope with these kids!), eating, sleeping (or at least my memories of it!), music, making stuff, being outside and the dream I have of one day not having to vacuum 7 times a day... :superhero: LOL!

 

We currently live in Clarksville, TN, but have spent the last 4 years moving back and forth between here (my husband's AD Army, stationed here) and our hometown in the NE corner of OH during his deployments.

 

 

 

 

Oh yeah, and here's my disclosure: I have a rare condition where anything more technologically advanced than my microwave oven becomes extremely, suddenly and randomly allergic to me! I don't think it's contagious...

Hello,

My name is Lynne and I live in Oregon. I have a husband of 51 years, (I FINALLY have him well trained :dancingelephant: ), 2 daughters, 2 granddaughters, 1 grandson, 3 g-grandsons and a fairly new g-granddaughter. I started paper scrapping about 5 years ago, but other than collecting stuff, never was happy with any thing I did. I do like the cards I make. 3 years or so ago I discovered digi scrapping. What a joy! If I didn't like something I could change it with a click. I am mostly doing heritage layouts and stories that I remember from my childhood. My other hobby is genealogy and I know how much I wish my family had left me stories or even named the people in old pictures. I am pretty much self taught on PSE and just now beginning to take classes and join in on sites. This was one of the first sites I discovered and thought I should start participating in things. Don't know how regular I'll be, but am willing to give it a shot. Everyone here seems to be so nice and friendly, so hope they will forgive my blunders on chats and the message board. This is probably more than you really wanted to know, but it does give you clues about me. Hope to make the next newbie chat.

Who

Me! I'm Jen and new to the addicting world of scrapbooking, be it paper or digital.

 

What

My wonderful husband of a little over a year and my two furry kitty babies. I love taking photos of my family and friends and am finally doing something with them! LOL Of course I work at a computer all day so when I get home at night I usually don't want to sit down at one again but soon my creativity will win out...it is Friday after all...

 

Where

The suburbs of Schenectady, NY which is about 20 minutes outside of Albany for those of you playing along at home. Hmm, though from the sounds of the weather perhaps I should say "soon to be underwater!"

Hello everyone,

 

My name is Danielle. Yesterday while working on a photo collage on PSE, I was unhappy with the results. I loved the pictures but wanted more dimension or layering. So the quest began. I found the site by searching for graduation card layouts. I purchased the set, and have spent most of the night playing around and trying to get it to look the way I'd like it to, if I were traditionally scrapbooking.

 

I then downloaded the secrets of digital scrapbooking for here and am trying to do a page step by step so it will sink in. I think the learning curve will be steep but I can already see how this will change the face of my scrapbooking.

 

4 1/2 years ago I opened a knitting boutique in my hometown of Elk Grove, CA. Since then I haven't done very many layouts. With four children, you can imagine the pictures that have built up. I have a customer hopefully coming in today to help me with my collage. My oldest son, is leaving in 3 weeks to join the Air Force, and I'm trying to do an invitation to a going away party with 3 different pictures. I think this new avenue will be good therapy as my first baby leaves the nest.

 

At some point, I'll figure out how to upload it here to show you all.

 

I look forward to meeting you all and seeing all the beautiful pages you've created,

 

Danielle

Elk Grove, CA

I think I should disclose that rare condition also. ;o) Even while doing the tutorials, I want mine to look and behave exactly as the video, and I'm frustrated when I can't make that occur. It looks like there is a lot of support on here, so we may be slowly cured of our condition.

 

Have fun,

 

Danielle

I'm Anne.

 

I LOVE my family. I also love reading, genealogy, photographs and old things (like my great-grandmother's treadle sewing machine and my great-grandfather's best suit...the one he was married in but couldn't be buried in because it didn't fit!) Maybe I should do a layout of that?

 

I'm currently in Virgina, USA...but that could change soon!

I'm Mary Ann and live near Dallas. I found Scrap Girls the end of June when I was deciding how to scrap an Alaskan cruise I had just taken with my daughter's family. I had done digital scrapbooks years ago on Publisher, but of course, that was nothing compared to using Photoshop and ScrapGirl supplies. I had paper scrapped since then, but I wanted to be able to share my book with my daughter, so digital seemed a good idea. It has taken 10 weeks to see the final fruit of my labor, but Tuesday in the mail, I got the finished result - my published scrapbook which I had printed on Fuji Archival photo paper - 50 pages. It came out amazing, and I am so happy with it!

 

I started with the free kit from ScrapGirls to see if it was something I could get the hang of, then ordered the Photoshop tutorial from Scrap Girls; by the end of the project, I had to go back and redo the first few pages as I had learned so much they didn't compare with the last pages! I have looked a little elsewhere for supplies, but cannot believe how childish some sites are and always come back to Scrap Girls for almost all my things.

 

I have two grown daughters who live within 1/2 mile and have blessed us with 5 granddaughters and one more due in Dec. My husband and I love to travel, especially cruise, and I have scrapbooked almost all of our travels. Some day soon, I need to redo all my daughters' photo albums, but for now, I am going to try to scrapbook the year's events as they occur. That's a big job as I am already behind 2 birthdays and Labor Day!

 

So glad to have found such a great site and group of people!

Welcome to Scrap Girls Anne, Laurie and Mary Ann. We are happy you are here and Mary Ann I am enjoying your "gushing" about your first book and I just might try that company you used myself for my Scrap Girls 52 Album when its done at the end of this year :) I scrap 8x8 so I'm thinking that might work :)

Vaughnde,

 

They do 8x8's and it is much cheaper than 12x12's but by the time I thought about all that, it would have involved re-doing too many pages because the text would have been too small for 8x8 layouts. Definitely something that I will think about before I start the next big project.

 

Thanks for the welcome!

Mary Ann

My name is Pat

 

I am a physician. I have 5 children, ages 7-37 years; 3 grandchildren ages 1-3 years. I live in the midwest.

 

I enjoy doing things with my family especially vacations. We like to ski, scuba dive, and travel.

 

I have been a traditional scrapbooker for years along with loving photography. I have just gotten adobe photoshop elements 7 and am trying to learn how to use it. I have previously only used my computer for journeling (bad handwriting) and titles. Now, I want to start digital scrapbooking and have been doing some downloads. I am a bit overwhelmed. I joined this forum (my first) to learn more.

Welcome Pat! (from another Pat :)) Thanks for introducing yourself. Can I assume from your screen name that you are an OB/Gyn? We have at least one other doctor here at Scrap Girls. Her name is Sandi and her screen name is Scrappindoc. She's in KC.

 

There are lots of PSE users here so don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions.

Hi, I'm Cris, wife to Bill, mother of 2,grandmother of 3 and slave to 3 cats.

 

I love most things creative - sewing, knitting, spinning, weaving, beading, tatting and the latest obsession is digi scrapping. Years ago I tried to do paper scrapping with my mom and sister. They both have numerous scrapbooks and all I have is a closet full of supplies. I just got overwhelmed whenever I would try to do a layout. I do make cards here and there and a few weeks ago I was looking for ideas for making Christmas cards and came across ScrapGirls. This is exactly what I have been looking for!! I bought PSE7 and have tried a few layouts. I am really anxious to get to the point where I can create my own elements. (the Christmas cards will probably wait a while)

 

I live in western Wisconsin - about nine miles from Minnesota and I work in St Paul.

 

I look forward to getting to know some of you,

 

Cris G
