Welcome hoppers! Simple Scrapper is a daily blog that helps you fit memory keeping into your busy life.

Are your photos disorganized? Is paper scrapbooking just too messy and expensive? Our posts arm you with tips, tricks and tutorials on photography, organization, and productivity as they relate to the art of digital scrapbooking.

Recently, our readers have been participating in Scrappers Give Thanks, a card-making challenge to support Operation Write Home. We have over 500 cards pledged so far, with a week remaining before cards need to be mailed. There is still time to join in the fun and win one of our amazing prizes, valued at over $750!

Organizing this challenge has been exciting, inspiring and humbling. I can’t believe the warm and enthusiastic response. I am so proud that Simple Scrapper will be a part of the 246,000+ cards sent to our deployed men and women. Here’s one of the fun and festive Valentine’s Day cards I made using digital designer Traci Reed’s A Lot Like Love kit.

You can download a free template to make this card and three others at our Scrappers Give Thanks site. Simple Scrapper’s #1 goal is making all things digital super easy for you!
