How long have you been scrapbooking(paper & digital)?
I started paper scrapping in fallof 2000 and still dabble in it. I just found out a fewof my co-workers are also avid scrappers, so we’llbe meeting once a month to get a few layouts cre-ated. I started digital scrapping in the fall of 2003,while living in Taiwan. Paper supplies were too ex-pensive, and I started using digital elements in mypaper layouts. It wasn’t long before I began usingPhotoshop for more than just editing my photos andprinting background paper!
What is your scrapbooking/design/craft background?
I’ve always been just a hobby-ist. I wish I had a professional design background,though... designing for an advertising agency issomething that I’ve always wanted to do!
What software do you use?
I am a loyalAdobe Photoshop user, currently using CS2.
How many layouts do you average permonth?
I only average 3 or 4 layouts a month,but I have so many ideas and pictures for so manymore!
Why do you like to create elements/kits?
I like to create so that I can see others use
my work. It’s really a selsh reason.
