Meet our wonderful Digital Scrapper Creative Team!
Andrea (AndreaGraves) – Creative Team Director
I’m the mom to three boys and am married to the love of my life. I’ve been doing digital scrapbooking since the fall of 2006 and love it. Besides spending time with my family, I love stand-up paddle boarding, tennis, photography, all things Photoshop, traveling, and reading. I’ve been with Digital Scrapper since 2009 and have loved every minute of it!
Passionate Engineer, Music Lover, and Photoshop Addict, all this is me: Anika. I’m a girl who grew up in the Ruhr area in Germany, not so far away from the Netherlands. I have lived in many places, from Bremen to Vienna and now near Cologne. What I love most about scrapbooking is that it encourages me to document the world from my point of view and share these memories with friends & family. [Anika is our resident hybrid expert.]
I have paper scrapbook albums for each year from 2004 through 2010, at which time I moved to digital. Scrapping digitally has allowed me to combine two of my favorite things, computers and creating, without being surrounded by piles of paper and machines.
I am a retired CPA. My husband and I have always enjoyed exercising together six days a week during our more than thirty years of marriage. We have three daughters, seven grandsons, and one granddaughter—all grown except two.
Hi everyone! My name is Barb Brookbank. I married my sweetheart in 1974, and together we’ve led a full and rewarding life. I’m the mother of two and grandmother of five. I am passionate about Digital Scrapper, digiscrapping, photography, Photoshop, yoga, reading, gardening, solitude, Starbucks coffee, and blogging. I live in Alberta, Canada in my little dream home on a small lake, surrounded by nature and close to long-time friends.
I have many titles to my name—wife, mother, friend, photographer—but, the one I cherish most is Nana. I have two adorable granddaughters that are the apple of my eye and are my main reason for scrapbooking my life. I started digital scrapbooking in 2006 and joined Digitial Scrapper in March of 2007. Digital Scrapbooking has allowed me to unleash my creative juices!
Donna (donnal) - NEW!
My scrapbooking life began when a friend asked me to host a Creative Memories party. By the end of the evening, I was hooked. Then I ordered Linda’s introductory CD on how to use Adobe Photoshop Elements for scrapbooking. That was in 2005, and it has become my favorite way to scrapbook and create digital art. I live in St. Louis, Missouri with my husband and our cute and furry dog, Lefty. We have two daughters–one just graduated from college, and one just got married. My husband recently retired and now we enjoy going out camping and exploring as much as we can. And, of course, I love to take my camera along to capture all the places we visit. Digital scrapbooking and my blog provide an opportunity to share our travels with family and friends.
Jenifer (rfeewjlj) - NEW!
I was born and raised in the state of North Dakota. I met my husband, Andy, at university, and we are coming up on our 10 year anniversary! We have two fur babies, Sadie & Penny, who are both of the Havanese breed. We’ve lived in the cold winters of Grand Forks, ND, the HOT summers of St. Louis, MO, and now reside in south central Washington State, close to Andy’s family. I found digital scrapbooking because I bought PSE 10, and Adobe had an ad on their website for Linda and Digital Scrapper. The moment I saw that article, I KNEW I had to come here to the website and jump in. And, that’s exactly what I did. I have learned so much here at Digital Scrapper and love being part of this creative community!
I am a wife of one, mother of two, and grandmother of four. My honey works overseas and is gone a lot, which leaves me lots of scrapbooking time. I have been digitally scrapping for about three years now but have been a lover of PSE for many years. I am now learning Photoshop and just absolutely love it! I have been a Premier member for a year and a half and just love this community!
Lidia (getzalong) - NEW!
I am originally from Indonesia, Jakarta to be exact. I moved to the US in 1996–first to Rhode Island, then Washington DC, Maryland, and now California. I am married to my first love and have two daughters. One is a sophomore in college, and the other is going to start high school next year. I found traditional scrapbooking in 2000 after my youngest daughter was born. I discovered Photoshop Elements 6 in 2009. The great thing about it was that it came with a Linda Sattgast digital scrapbooking tutorial. Ever since then I’ve been hooked and have never gone back to traditional scrapbooking.
I discovered digiscrapping in 2007 and have been a member of Digital Scrapper Premier since 2008. I readily admit that I am a digiscrap-a-holic that has no intention of ever seeking a cure. Creating scrap pages of my family members is something that I love to do. My additional interests include retouching/restoring vintage photographs, creating digital art, researching my family history, and website design/maintenance.
I was born and raised in Cuba and immigrated to the United States when I was 17 years old. I am happily married and have one daughter who is also married, but I haven’t been blessed with grandchildren yet. I am a retired pharmacist, and currently I volunteer at my church teaching Spanish to pre-school children. I love all kinds of crafts, but my favorite hobbies are reading, digital scrapbooking, knitting, gardening, and walking. I bought PSE 9, and it came with an instruction disk by Linda Sattgast. The instructions were awesome, and I was finally able to start digital scrapbooking. I have never stopped.
Hi. My name is Nannette, but I go by Nann in the digital world mostly because I am too lazy to spell it all out! I am first a mother of four, grandmother of nine, and wife to one (just making it clear). I am a pushover for anything “cute.” I feel passionate about scrapbooking and learning about Photoshop and Photoshop Elements and love helping others enjoy something that I am very passionate about.
Renate (Joshgirl) - NEW!
I am Renate, aka Joshgirl, and I live in the Netherlands. I love to digiscrap; it’s my way to relax. I have been active in the digiscrap world since 2009. My other hobbies are photography, watching sitcoms, traveling (my fave city is London), Josh Groban (I love his voice), and lots more.
