See you next week in the New Release Round Up!

Welcome!!!!

Welcome! In May of 2013, I had not scrapbooked in over a year. I had a busy 11 month old crawling all over the place and getting into everything. I didn’t feel like hauling out all of my paper supplies during his nap time to scrap only to clean them all up when he woke up an hour later. I then took the plunge and accepted Digital Scrapbooking as my new creative outlet. All of the fun and less of a mess for a crawler to get into!

Within a month of re-discovering the wonders of digital scrapping, I was hooked! I was making pages and pages a day and getting active in the community. I joined several creative teams and embraced the open gallery. Now almost two years later, the number of open galleries has diminished. And to tell the truth, I never really felt that welcome like I did at an individual store forum. So this is an effort to change that. This Digi Scrapping corner is open to all lovers of digital scrapbooking! A place to showcase our layouts and to talk about our passion of memory keeping whether we are traditional, project life, art journal, hybrid, whatever! This community is for you!

Several features I love about this forum and gallery are unique. Scrap Stacks is the scrappers pinterest and I would love for this to become the scrappers Facebook. You will find a newsfeed, a gallery posting system much like the social network and ease uploading and sharing!

This blog will showcase, awesome layouts, new releases, happenings in the scrap community and whatever you would like to see! This will be a community run by avid scrappers who want to share their love of the hobby and creations.

Thank you for looking! I hope to see you around!
