After taking the summer off from weekly video tutorials to concentrate on the launch of Scrapaneers, I’m SO excited to be back in the tutorial room creating weekly vids for y’all! My homies.
This week’s video begins the start of something new and extremely cool! The video series are now sponsored by digital enthusiasts and companies around the web, which allows me to provide more in-depth content — something I KNOW you’ll love.
Hello, Leontien, and welcome to Simply Tiffany Studios! Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and how you began digital scrapbooking?
I’m from the Netherlands where I live with my husband and 4.5-year-old son. I’m a fontaholic and love photography.
I started digi scrapping in 2008 when my son was born. The first year wasn’t easy (he didn’t sleep much and cried a LOT!). To keep me sane and occupied with something else other than feeding and trying to soothe him I would scrap in the few short naps he would take.
Your screen name is Jippo. Does that have anything to do with the Finnish football club?
Hello, Chris, and welcome to Simply Tiffany Studios! Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
Hi, my name is Chris Asbury, aka casbury in digi-world. I’m from Northern California and live in Livermore (California’s ‘other’ Wine Country), with my husband, son and two dogs. Since my son graduated from college just a few weeks ago, my husband and I will soon be official empty nesters with just two aging dogs to keep us company. We also have two married daughters living in SoCal and two adorable granddaughters.
How did you get started in digital scrapbooking?
I began scrapbooking in 2005 out of a need to organize my ever growing stash of photographs and memorabilia and to make some sense of order. I also believe that if you save something just to store it away it has no purpose. Why not see it, use it or share it? I was only familiar with paper scrapping at the time and became instantly obsessed with all things scrapbooking. I amassed a colorful array of supplies that would be left behind in two years when I discovered digital scrapping.
If you would have told me earlier this year that my workshops would have a new home by mid-year, I would have called you a liar, hitched my skirt up, and ran away! But in the end, you’d have been right!
