Tell us about you and your family.

I am married for 26 years to my husband John. We have three children and two granddaughters with a grandson due at the end of November. I live in east central Florida.

 

What program(s) do you use for digital scrapbooking?

Paint Shop Pro X9 & Photoshop Elements 12

 

Why did you join the Scrapaneers Team?

I saw the call and have been interested in the classes offered since one of the ladies I’m on a creative team for shared that she was going to be offering a Champions class. I thought it was the perfect opportunity to get involved while improving my scrapbook skills and encouraging and helping others with theirs.

 

How long have you been scrapbooking (paper and digital)?

I started in 2007 when my daughter was turning 16. I wanted to create something special for her and thought that creating a scrapbook with a new program I had bought would be the perfect gift. I had no idea digital scrapbooking was a thing until I looked up tutorials for making things for the book and found several communities and stores in the process. Needless to say I was hooked.

 

What is your favorite layout/project of all time and why? 

This one is my favorite layout (two page layout) because the birth of my granddaughter was like a rainbow after a storm. She was born just a little over a year after my son was killed in a car crash. The time after he died was very dark for me and while she did not take away the pain of missing him, she did bring a light to everyone’s life which helps me to keep going everyday.

Tell us about you and your family.

Hello!! My name is Anita and I’ve been married for 17 years with two beautiful children. Hannah is a beautiful young lady that loves God more than any other person I’ve ever known. I believe she has a direct hot line to God. She is so confident in knowing how much He loves her and has no problem telling people how much she loves her heavenly father, it’s a wonderful gift. My son has such a kind heart. He sticks up for people being bullied, always has a kind word to say when people are sad and he would do what ever it takes to protect a buddy. My husband is the best dad that a wife could ask for. He is a hard worker and a prayer warrior for our family and pretty handsome I must say! 🙂 I’ve worked as a Flight Attendant for 20 years and was able to travel all around the world during that time. After the company went out of business, I stayed home with the kids and fell in love with Digital Scrapbooking thanks to a friend of mine! I’m always trying to learn new things, but don’t always stick to them. This has stuck and become an addiction…not always the healthiest during big sales…but I’m sure there are worse things and I know I’m not alone! lol

 

What program(s) do you use for digital scrapbooking?

PSE 14 and CC 2015

 

Why did you join the Scrapaneers Team?

I love to learn new things in regards to scrapping, shadows, blending, story boarding, color and pretty much anything else I can’t think of at the moment! I’m hoping to become a better scrapper while here, but even more so, I’m hoping to get others involved in scrapping and learning with me! I also love people, so I’m looking forward to knowing all of you better! 🙂 This is a wonderful community to be a part of!

 

How long have you been scrapbooking (paper and digital)?

I’ve been paper scrapping for about 30 years and have not made much even though I have an entire craft room full of paper and all the other beautiful items I need to make awesome pages. In 17 years of working on my wedding book I made two pages and 6 half pages that need photos. I’ve been digital scrapping close to 6 years and I’ve made over 500 pages. A huge difference. I love the fact I can scrap anywhere with no mess as long as I have my laptop and now people are even scrapping on their phones! AWESOME!!

 

What is your favorite layout/project of all time and why? 

This is one of my favorites because I actually journaled and love both pictures of my kids in the layout. Journaling is a challenge for me and this layout flowed easily. I love the kit and designer Kristin Cronin-Barrow (one of my all time favorites). I also like the way the title work turned out 🙂

 

 

What is something we may not know about you?

I love to work with wood and big tools. I would love to make furniture some day and I almost got eaten by a hippo on an African Safari trip! 🙂

Tell us about you and your family.

I am a stay-at-home mom of three boys. My family lives in the South of Germany. Besides scrapbooking I love photography, traveling and reading thrillers. One of my sons plays baseball (which is a very rare and less popular sport here in Germany), so I also spend a lot of time at various baseball fields.

 

What program(s) do you use for digital scrapbooking?

Photoshop CS6 (for photo-editing I use Lightroom)

 

Why did you join the Scrapaneers Team?

Scrapaneers is a wonderful place! Being a part of the Scrapaneers team is a real challenge for me. I am creating for many great designers and Scrapaneers is something new for me. I think as a team member I can help others to improve their scrapbooking and I myself can learn new techniques.

 

How long have you been scrapbooking (paper and digital)?

I started scrapbooking in 2010 and can’t stop! I am a 100% digi scrapper.

 

What is your favorite layout/project of all time and why? 

That’s a hard decision… There are many layouts I have to choose from… I like the clean and simple style and I like to include my travel-photos in my layouts, so at the moment I really like this page:

Tell us about you and your family.

Wife, mom, step-mom, and nana. I’ve got a lot of names to answer to lol. But I love them all. Hubby and I live in a small town in Michigan with our two youngest, 13 & 12. As a family the one thing we all love is to go fishing. I’ve been fishing since I was a little girl and it is my favorite hobby, next to scrapping of course. Anytime I’m not scrapping, I’m planning on how to get my pole into the water. We also enjoy hanging out playing games or trying new foods. We’re owned by one fluffy tailed, Alaskan Malamute who just can’t seem to keep his tongue in his mouth.

 

What program(s) do you use for digital scrapbooking?

Photoshop CS6

 

Why did you join the Scrapaneers Team?

I love being a part of the community. I love hanging out in the forum and encouraging newbies and “oldies” alike and commenting on all the gorgeous pages. To be a part of this community and be able to learn and grow my own skills was an awesome combo I couldn’t pass up!

 

How long have you been scrapbooking (paper and digital)?

I think every little girl has did some form of memory keeping, whether in a diary, keeping photo albums, or saving all the mementos and letters we get in boxes under our beds. Well I was that little girl. I never did actual paper scrapping though. But I knew I’d always need a way to keep all these memories. I happened upon digiscrap by chance. When I did it was like a whole new world opened before my eyes and I set out to learn all I could and download all I could too. (freebies anyone?) I knew I wanted to use it to start keeping my family’s stories, that was in 2009, and I haven’t turned back!

 

What is your favorite layout/project of all time and why? 

Wow, how do I even start to pick a favorite layout of all time?! Each page holds such a special memory or story it’s so hard to choose. I guess I’d have to pick the favorite of this year…lol…which is this one of my 2 granddaughters. They live in Tennessee which is where hubby is from originally and where we stayed when we got married and started our family. Now back in Michigan where I’m from, we don’t get to see them often enough. And I don’t get too many pics of them either. So when I get some that I can scrap with, it’s always special to me and to our albums.

 

 

What is something we may not know about you?

I’m a published poet. I’ve been published in a couple of literary magazines and I also have 2 published poetry collections with a 3rd on the way. ♥

I live in Michigan with my husband Michael and our five cats. We love to travel, (Michael and I, not the cats) and have experienced many great adventures together.

 

What program(s) do you use for digital scrapbooking?

PSE6

 

Why did you join the Scrapaneers Team?

I love the freedom digital scrapbooking offers. You can create something unique and are only limited by your imagination. Many of the skills I have learned are through sites like Scrapaneers. There is a strong sense of community in the scrapping world too. Because we are story tellers, we get to know people through their layouts. I have made many friends that I have never met because of this hobby.

 

How long have you been scrapbooking (paper and digital)?

I have been scrapbooking over twenty years. I started with paper, and then discovered digital in 2012 and never looked back. I love the freedom digital offers. If you need a certain color element, you can just recolor it. Make something the wrong size or another mistake, just hit undo and start over. And my husband’s favorite thing is no mess!

 

What is your favorite layout/project of all time and why? 

This is really tough for me. There is rarely a page that I have scrapped that I didn’t like, let alone love. I do a lot of photo editing with my iphone and use those photos on my pages. Many of my favorites include manipulated images. I think this is why I love this one so much. It has very little embellishments (which is not normal for me) and I love how Tigger just stands out in it.

 

 

What is something we may not know about you?

I collect pressed pennies and Matryoshka dolls.

What program(s) do you use for digital scrapbooking?

Photoshop CC 2015

 

Why did you join the Scrapaneers Team?

I want to be in a teaching and nurturing environment. And I found out that Scrapaneers is a perfect place for that.

 

How long have you been scrapbooking (paper and digital)?

6 years

 

What is your favorite layout/project of all time and why? 

Not my favourite but it’s a page that I will remember forever ( I created this page in memory of my cabin crews friends who were in a plane that got shot down. I was devastated as I was a flight attendant and I knew many of cabin crew on that plane. It happened three months after another plane when missing.)

 

 

What is something we may not know about you?

I am an artist and I love painting portraits.

Tell us about you and your family.

I have been a digital scrapper for 13 years now. I decided to switch to digital when my youngest turned 2 because I couldn’t keep her out of my supplies. I work full time in the health care industry. I share my home with my husband Jason and our daughter Hannah and our two cats Bella and Cali. My oldest daughter, Katie, just started college. I love digital scrapbooking not only as a way to remember the every day life of my family but also as a hobby that balances my full time job crazy schedule.

 

What program(s) do you use for digital scrapbooking?

Photoshop CC

 

Why did you join the Scrapaneers Team?

I wanted to be part of the best team out there for digital scrapbooking education. I wanted to support other scrappers that are just starting out or that want to learn more. I’m also looking forward to learning more myself.

 

How long have you been scrapbooking (paper and digital)?

Digital 13 years. Paper I started about 5 years before that.

 

What is your favorite layout/project of all time and why? 

This is my favorite layout ever because of the story it tells. I’m always doing something goofy on vacation. On this trip we were in French Canada and none of us spoke French. I thought this was the information center, but it was a doctors office. My kids still joke about this. Plus I got a Layout of the Week award for this page – so that always makes me feel good.

 

 

What is something we may not know about you?

I love to travel and to eat!

My husband and I recently celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary and we have 3 daughters ages ranging from 26 – 17, and 2 grandchildren ages 5 and 2, all the loves of my life!

 

What program(s) do you use for digital scrapbooking?

PSE 15

 

Why did you join the Scrapaneers Team?

There is a very special bond and closeness I have found here in the digi-world and since I spend most of my time at a computer, the friends and family I have found on the other side of the computer screen are so important to me. I love that I can say I have friends across the globe and they are the most encouraging, creative and supportive people I have come across in my life. I hope that being a part of the Scrapaneers team I am able to be a source of encouragement and support for others.

 

How long have you been scrapbooking (paper and digital)?

I started paper scrapbooking when my kids were fairly young (about 14 years ago), they chose to do scrapbooking for 4-H the first year it became available and I took it up as well…they did NOT however stick with it, I did but not as often as I would have liked. About 4 years ago a friend from work had begun digi-scrap and tried for months to get me to take it up as well, but I fought against it thinking that I would miss the dimension and the “realness” of the paper. I finally caved in when she showed me a few of her pages, and to say that I have not turned back would be an understatement!! I am a digi-scrap addict and do not miss paper scrapping at all and definitely don’t miss the mess (I was a hoarder of all the scrapping stuffs!)

 

What is your favorite layout/project of all time and why? 

Wow…that’s a tough call, I have so many favorites for so many different reasons but right now I guess I would go with this one. I think it embodies pretty well who I am, always trying to keep a happy exterior but with so many feelings and struggles just beneath the surface some good some not so good but all a part of my story.

 

 

What is something we may not know about you?

I am a bit of a computer geek, having worked as an IT/software admin for several years and currently work occasionally as a consultant when time and motivation allows me.

I am a 30 something mom of 3 very busy boys, ages 15, 13 & 8! Thanks to their continuous sporting events, I always have something to photograph & record! In my spare time (ha!) I like to read books, ride bikes and go on foodie adventures.

 

What program(s) do you use for digital scrapbooking?

Right now I am using PSE 14.

 

Why did you join the Scrapaneers Team?

Digital scrapbooking is such an important part of my everyday life, be it on my phone or on the computer at home. I joined the Scrapaneers team to share that love of digital scrapbooking & hopefully learn more about this amazing craft!

 

How long have you been scrapbooking (paper and digital)?

I started paper scrapbooking when my oldest son was born in 2001. As our family grew I found I was running out of free time to spend in my craft room. In 2008 when my youngest son was born I found digital scrapbooking and it totally worked with my busy schedule! This new found love of digital reinspired me and my passion for recording memories! Since then I haven’t looked back and as our day to day lives have gotten even busier, I have fallen in love with scrapbooking on the go, thanks to the Project Life app!

 

What is your favorite layout/project of all time and why? 

One of my all time favorite projects is our 2013 summer of love mini album! So many fun memories that year and the album is just so my style. Simple, graphic and colorful!

 

 

What is something we may not know about you?

I am a collector of things! Cameras, globes, white owls & pez are a few of my collections 🙂

I’m happily married to my best friend and love of my life. We have a son, and a dog. The dog came first.

 

What program(s) do you use for digital scrapbooking?

Photoshop Creative Cloud, Lightroom CC

 

Why did you join the Scrapaneers Team?

I joined because no layout should go unloved and I talk too much.

 

How long have you been scrapbooking (paper and digital)?

I started scrapping in 1996 officially in paper. Although, I do have some “smash books” from earlier years. I found digi in December 2012 as I embarked on Project Life. And never looked back.

 

What is your favorite layout/project of all time and why? 

This is hard! Usually my favorite is the last one I finished. But, I think this project holds a special part in my heart. It’s my husband and I over the years. Just the two of us in each photo no matter who else is in our lives. I printed them out and hung them on our living wall. A snapshot of us over the years.

 

 

What is something we may not know about you?

I love the smell of fresh rain. The smell of rain in the air, and it freshly hitting the ground.
