“Simple Scrapper is your easy-on/easy-off rest stop from life’s pleasant chaos.”
Can you believe it’s almost Thanksgiving? Time sure flies when you’re busy with kids, work and all the fun that is life. You’ve captured as many priceless moments as you can, but are overwhelmed at all the options. You want a creative outlet, but need to squeeze it in between dinner and soccer practice… or even after everyone is in bed! I bet you’re like me – you caress the beautiful scrapbooking papers at craft stores and fondle cute embellishments, but wonder where you would store it all and how you would get started. How do you find balance?
I was in envy of my paper scrapbooking friends – busy moms (and single gals) who seemed to have time to cook, clean and crop-til-you-drop. That is, until I discovered digital scrapbooking. I instantly knew this was a great solution for honoring my memories while keeping my sanity. I could crop to my hearts content in my ‘digital craft room’, while watching the pot or catching up on Tivo – all with no mess to clean up!
I started exploring this community of lovely and talented designers and scrappers, to a certain level of frustration. Like many niches on the internet, there is simply a lot to process. I found many sources for freebies, countless stores to purchase beautiful kits and a seemingly endless array of forums and galleries. I asked myself: how can a novice scrapper, especially one with little time, get in and out without getting lost in the fuss? While there are many great tutorial sites, especially focused on nuances of software, I could not find one blog with easy-peasy tips for new scrappers. I was looking for a Sew, Mama, Sew! of the digital scrapbooking world.
