Were you scrapbooking 15 years ago? Yes, but mostly still paper. I had just come across digital scrapbooking.
How did you get started scrapbooking? I first started paper scrapping because a friend of mine was selling Creative Memories. I started digital scrapbooking after getting my first digital camera in 2005.
When did you start scrapbooking? I started paper scrapping sometime after I got married, probably around 1995.
When did you join SSD? April 2012
Did you lurk first? Nope, but I wasn't super active at first. I only posted 5 LO's in 2012.
When did you upload your first layout to the gallery? April 15, 2012
Show it to us!

How would you describe your scrapbooking style? Hmmm... not sure I really have a style that I can name. I tend not to do artsy pages. I'd say my style is fairly simple, with a focus on the photos. I like big titles and almost always include journaling.
How many pages have you made this month? 29, but not all for SSD... I think this could be a record!
Have you ever paper scrapped? Yes, and still make cards on occasion.
What's your favorite color palette to scrap with? I love blues and greens; I tend to use bolder colors or sometimes use a monochromatic scheme.
Have you ever taught anyone else to scrapbook? I've shown friends how to scrapbook digitally, but they haven't stuck with it.
What were you like as a 15 year old? I just created a LO about that lol.. I was a freshman in high school, on the tennis team, in the chorus, a member of the Rainbow Girls and a Girl Scout. I was the youngest of 3, and pretty much never did anything that I wasn't "supposed" to do. I was a good girl haha.
If you went back 15 years, what would be most surprising about your current self? I would be surprised that I ended up single, having gotten divorced after being married for 18 years. I would definitely be surprised about the story behind my divorce.
What was your life like 15 years ago? 15 years ago, I was busy living the mom life to 3 boys, ages 4, 6 and 8. My life was consumed by Cub Scouts (I was a den leader for several years), sports activities, and my full time teaching job. I had very little time to myself.

Were you scrapbooking 15 years ago? * Yes
How did you get started scrapbooking? * A neighbor of mine showed me her books and convinced me that I needed to scrap all of my photos.
When did you start scrapbooking? * I started scrapbooking in 1996. Although, I've been saving memorabilia and photos in books since I was in high school in the 80s.
When did you join SSD? * I joined in 2015.
Did you lurk first? * Of course I lurked. I was too nervous to post anything.
When did you upload your first layout to the gallery? *December 10, 2015
Show it to us!

How would you describe your scrapbooking style? * Decorative
How many pages have you made this month? *37
Have you ever paper scrapped? * Still do
What's your favorite color palette to scrap with? (name at least two colors) * Teals (Aquas) and Blues
Have you ever taught anyone else to scrapbook? * Yes I have, I'm a Creative Memories Advisor and a Forever Ambassador.
What were you like as a 15 year old? * My mother would tell you that I was impossible. I would say that I was focused. I was in the marching band in high school and because of that I was attending school from 6:00 am to noon so that we could practice in the afternoon. We were on double sessions and I was a freshman attending with the juniors and seniors. I was also working a part time job and trying to maintain an A average at school. Yes, I'd say I had to be focused.
If you went back 15 years, what would be most surprising about your current self? * That I am finally trying to get healthy and actually enjoy working out in the yard.
What was your life like 15 years ago? * I'd say pretty much the same as it is now. I'm still married, still living in the same house and still working at the same job; although I have much more responsibility at work. Back then I used to commute in my car every day for almost an hour each way in Atlanta traffic, but these days (when we are not in a pandemic and working from home) I take the train into work. The way I eat has changed so that I can be healthier, but I am still struggling with my weight, just like I did 15 years ago.

Were you scrapbooking 15 years ago? *No, I didn't start digital scrapbooking until after my oldest son was born. At that point I had so many adorable baby photos that I needed to find something to do with them!

How did you get started scrapbooking? *I started out making siggies on a parenting forum. Some of the lovely ladies who ran various challenges and tutorial there were also on CTs for designers here. I was drawn in by the beautiful elements I was always seeing on their signatures, so I eventually followed them here.

When did you start scrapbooking? *About 11 years ago.

When did you join SSD? *I had to look this up - it was in December of 2015.

Did you lurk first? *I think so? I know I purchased kits before I joined the forums.

When did you upload your first layout to the gallery? *May 2016
Show it to us!



How would you describe your scrapbooking style? *Eclectic. I use templates a lot but I also do lots of cutouts, photo overlays, and other experimental techniques.

How many pages have you made this month? *Five, all for the Party A Day challenges.

Have you ever paper scrapped? *Yes, long ago, when I was in high school/college. That never appealed to me as much.

What's your favorite color palette to scrap with? (name at least two colors) *I really have no idea, but looking back at my gallery, it seems that I use a lot of blue and green.

Have you ever taught anyone else to scrapbook? *Yes! I am actually a high school teacher, and I recently taught an elective class that combined family history/genealogy research with scrapbooking. It was pretty fun.

What were you like as a 15 year old? *I was extremely studious and academic. I did no sports but took a ton of AP classes. My only real activities outside of school were homework and church.

If you went back 15 years, what would be most surprising about your current self? *Hmm...that was one year before I got married. I think I would have been surprised to learn that I eventually settled down in one small town in the United States. My husband's and my plan had always been to travel and teach abroad (which we did for four years, but then we came back).

What was your life like 15 years ago? *I was living in Boise in a tiny duplex, teaching while working on my master's degree. I was busy planning my wedding, had no kids yet, and had a life of relative freedom compared to today!

[*]Were you scrapbooking 15 years ago? *Yes. I started digiscrapping in March 2004.
[*]How did you get started scrapbooking? *My oldest was 5 months old, and every time I printed pictures I added text to remind me what was happening. As the baby got older and those comments moved from quick milestones ("1st tooth") to longer stories, I needed to find a better way to record my memories.
[*]When did you start scrapbooking? *March 2004
[*]When did you join SSD? *I was here opening day, but I don't remember if I registered then. My forum join date says Dec 2007, but IIRC either the forum came later or SSD got new forum software and dates were reset to then. Maybe both? It's been too long to remember!
[*]Did you lurk first? *Who remembers?
[*]When did you upload your first layout to the gallery? *April 2008
[*]Show it to us!
This was my first LO in the gallery. Back then you could participate in challenges without using SSD products, so that's how this first LO was.

[*]How would you describe your scrapbooking style? *Paper-style with large photos and small clusters
[*]How many pages have you made this month? *13
[*]Have you ever paper scrapped? *Not really. I meant to, but my 1st layout was paper and my 2nd was hybrid. By my 3rd I was 100% digital.
[*]What's your favorite color palette to scrap with? (name at least two colors) *Don't really have one, but a lot of my layouts have a brown wood grain background and include either red and blue or purple and blue.
[*]Have you ever taught anyone else to scrapbook? *No
[*]What were you like as a 15 year old? *Responsible, a good student who hated math, a bookworm, loyal to a few close friends, excited about turning 16 and being able to drive
[*]If you went back 15 years, what would be most surprising about your current self? *Umm...that I listen to audiobooks instead of reading dead tree books! Other than that, I feel like the writing was already on the wall 15 years ago for most of what my life is like now.
[*]What was your life like 15 years ago? *I was a SAHM to a 2 year old with baby #2 due in March. We'd just moved into our current house. In January we'd registered the oldest for preschool, and I had no idea what a big role that school would play in my life--15 years later I'm still there teaching!

1. Were you scrapbooking 15 years ago? yes!
2. How did you get started scrapbooking? I started with a sketch book to collect movie tickets and show programs and journal about college life.
When did you start scrapbooking? 1997?
When did you join SSD? Feb 2012 per the forum user info -but I'm sure I purchased things prior to that.
Did you lurk first? oh dear! I can't remember!
I feel like I 'moved' to this forum when Two Peas closed up

How would you describe your scrapbooking style? Pretty simply with clusters of flowers
How many pages have you made this month? maybe 5?
Have you ever paper scrapped? yes!
What's your favorite color palette to scrap with? (name at least two colors) Purple Teal
Have you ever taught anyone else to scrapbook? I've tried lol!
What were you like as a 15 year old? I was madly flirting with my now husband (we wouldn't officially start dating until the summer). My life revolved around dancing. I was on the school dance team where we practiced daily at 6AM and then spent hours in the dance studio every night after school doing ballet, tap, jazz & Broadway. Friday nights meant halftime shows. Weekends were for skiing, movies & hanging out with friends. Somewhere in there I managed school too lol!
If you went back 15 years, what would be most surprising about your current self? It would be surprising to know we have two kids! And I'd be shocked that I left my career to stay home with the kids, volunteer run the art program at their school and juggle a few part time jobs.
What was your life like 15 years ago? I was on my way to a great career as a food broker for Costco. I spent weekends doing crafts and had an awesome dedicated scrapbooking room. Our group of friends was starting to have babies and so our gatherings were becoming planned around naptimes and early bedtimes.

  1. Were you scrapbooking 15 years ago? Yes I was very much into paper scrapbooking, teaching classes, on design teams and regularly published in Australian Scrapbooking magazines.
  2. How did you get started scrapbooking? I was invited to a Creative Memories party by a friend. I knew instantly that this was the craft for me as I'd always loved my photos and I had 3 super cute little kids at the time.
  3. When did you start scrapbooking? I'm not exactly sure but I think it was around 2001.
  4. When did you join SSD? 25th January 2018
  5. Did you lurk first? I don't think so, I tend to jump right in to things like this but I definitely shopped here before joining the social community.
  6. When did you upload your first layout to the gallery? The same day that I joined. 25th January 2018.
  7. Show it to us! This is hilarious! I just went back to find my first layout and it is the same template (set) as my most recent layout that I posted today!



  8. How would you describe your scrapbooking style? I like to try out different styles but I think I naturally tend toward fairly simple and neat layouts. I like flowers and patterned papers and I'm not good at grunge even though I love the look of it.
  9. How many pages have you made this month? I have done 14 layouts so far this month.
  10. Have you ever paper scrapped? Yes, as I said above. I paper scrapped for around 10 years until I lost my Mum and then moved house in 2010. I tried to get back into it but just never found my groove again... until I discovered the magic of digiscrapping.
  11. What's your favorite color palette to scrap with? (name at least two colors) I honestly can't narrow it down to any colour palette. I love all colours, brights, pastels, muted and natural. Green, pink, blue, orange...
  12. Have you ever taught anyone else to scrapbook? Yes, I used to run online classes for one online scrapbook shop, face to face classes for some local shops and I was an ambassador for Fiskars doing demonstrations in our local craft stores. We also had frequent crops at my house where we taught each other new things.
  13. What were you like as a 15 year old? I was not a confident kid, didn't feel like I had a lot of friends (but the ones I had were great). I was a 'good girl' and always did the right thing for fear of getting in trouble. I wasn't sporty but loved a good book... not much has changed really.
  14. If you went back 15 years, what would be most surprising about your current self? Probably that I'm back at work after so many years of being home with my kids. I'm back teaching and also studying to qualify as a counsellor.
  15. What was your life like 15 years ago? 15 years ago I was a stay at home Mum to 3 kids aged 10, 8 and 5. They were busy with sports and school and we lived a little way out of town so I spent half my life driving. My husband worked away all week and came home for weekends. My scrapbooking was definitely my outlet and my 'me time'.

1. Were you scrapbooking 15 years ago? Yes.
2. How did you get started scrapbooking? My first efforts were after the push to make cute scrapbooks using paper products hit the market big time. I was using colored markers and stickers. I don't think I had much patience when it came to cutting papers and gluing cut things on my pages though. My digital scrapbooking got started not long after I got into making cards which in turn led to getting scrapbooking kits to help create them with. The hybrid cards quickly turned to digital card making efforts and one day I thought...hey! digital scrapbooking is just like making a bigger digital card. I can do this! And with that I got pulled into it hook, line and sinker!
3. When did you start scrapbooking? I think it was in 2006 or there abouts. Maybe a little earlier with my hybrid efforts.
4. When did you join SSD? January 10, 2009
5. Did you lurk first? Right about the same time that I joined.
5. When did you upload your first layout to the gallery? March 7, 2016
7. Show it to us!

8. How would you describe your scrapbooking style? I do a combination of creating my pages my way and using templates other times. I love the way template pages turn out but sometimes my freestyle method is less tiring for my brain. I like using a lot of flowers and clusters.
9. How many pages have you made this month? 21
10. Have you ever paper scrapped? Yes. See #1 & 2.
11. What's your favorite color palette to scrap with? (name at least two colors) Blues and greens.
12. Have you ever taught anyone else to scrapbook? No.
13. What were you like as a 15 year old? I was a typical teenager. I didn't do a lot of going out and about though. Just stuck close to home. I was an average student in school. Never part of the popular crowd. I did a lot of reading and I enjoyed writing. Loved music. Especially the teen scene stuff like the Beatles, and other groups that came from England.
14. If you went back 15 years, what would be most surprising about your current self? Probably that we have been able to land in our dream retirement place. Living in the mountains in a tiny rural community far from the city. That I totally love my digital scrapbooking and trying to become better at it. It's important to me. And that we face so many medical situations with my husband's and daughter's health. But life is still very good for us and we are so blessed.
15. What was your life like 15 years ago? I was a stay at home mom who liked doing family history and my scrapbooking. Just enjoying being able to stay home. All of our boys were married and having families of their own so I was loving the Grandma thing, too. Just ordinary every day stuff going on. We were looking forward to our retirement years coming up and wishing they could come sooner than they did. Our health issues had begun but were not as bad as they are now.

Were you scrapbooking 15 years ago? No. I'm very late to the game.
How did you get started scrapbooking? I dabbled in graphic design at school so when I came across a pin on Pinterest of a beautiful layout from SSD, I clicked and the rest is history.
When did you start scrapbooking? 3 years ago.
When did you join SSD? Last year
Did you lurk first? Absolutely! That's the only way to do it lol. I found it helpful to watch from a distance until I built up my confidence to share.
When did you upload your first layout to the gallery? This week as part of the 15th Birthday celebration party-games-a-day. It was the gentle nudge I needed.
Show it to us!

How would you describe your scrapbooking style? I'm still finding my feet but I would say that I have a traditional style with a touch of the geometrical and abstract. I love abstract templates as it helps me to play around more with that style. I like messy/grungy, although I'm not bold with it. I tend to limit it just to the background paper or a few paints behind my clusters just to add dimension. It's a bit like cooking. I add my main style and then I sprinkle the other ones.
How many pages have you made this month? I've made 5 pages this month that I have added to the gallery and 2 pages that I haven't added to the gallery.
Have you ever paper scrapped? No, but I have tried hybrid projects.
What's your favorite color palette to scrap with? (name at least two colors) Blues, Purples, Greens and a summer palette of yellow, orange and red.
Have you ever taught anyone else to scrapbook? Not yet.
What were you like as a 15 year old? Gosh, I was a somewhat rebellious teen. I snuck my first tattoos without my parents knowing.
If you went back 15 years, what would be most surprising about your current self? My teenage self would be surprised that my current self is a dental nurse. When I was 15, I had aspirations of becoming an air hostess.
What was your life like 15 years ago? I had a pretty good life as a teenager. I still had both my parents and they spoiled me a little bit. I was the youngest and they cut me a lot of slack.

Here are my answers...

Were you scrapbooking 15 years ago?
Yes, I was. I think it was only paperscrapping. In May 2006 I read an article about digital scrapping.
How did you get started scrapbooking?
I found a Dutch magazine about being creative with photos. First they had all sorts of projects, but it turned out to be more and more about paperscrapping.
When did you start scrapbooking?
I think in 2003, when I discovered the 2nd issue of said magazine. In 2006 they had an article about digital scrapbooking. I turned to that more and more, leaving heaps of paperscrapping materials in the attic...
When did you join SSD?
I July 2014, although I think I had shopped before. Okay, looked that up, my first order was on 8-21-2011...
Did you lurk first?
Oh yes, I did! I was mostly about hoarding freebies, it was a hobby on it's own, lol.
When did you upload your first layout to the gallery?
On july 31, 2014.
Show it to us!

How would you describe your scrapbooking style?
Trying different things... and always late to party. At first I didn't like pocket scrapping, now I like it for my albums to them give a clean look. I wasn't about using paint alover, now I start making pages like that. But, I'm pretty much a safe scrapper, not really standing out. I don't think that when you see one of my pages, you immediately know it's one by me.
How many pages have you made this month?
7 or 8, all for SSD challenges.
Have you ever paper scrapped?
Yes, see above!
What's your favorite color palette to scrap with? (name at least two colors)
I love pinks, light blue, cream/sand, pastels/soft colors, purples. I also like natural palettes, with browns, green and blue.
Have you ever taught anyone else to scrapbook?
Yes, my daughter. She likes to be creative with photos as well, but not as a scrapper.
What were you like as a 15 year old?
Pretty well behaved, you probably wouldn't notice me in a classroom. I started my dancing classes and discoverd boys... And prefered to read above doing my homework...
If you went back 15 years, what would be most surprising about your current self?
The way I have grown as a person and as a mother. The way I have handled job losses and changes. The way I have been dealing with pain daily. And also the amazing trips to Florida I planned.
What was your life like 15 years ago?
I was a mother of a 1.5 yrs old girl, impatiently waiting for my breast reduction surgery.

Were you scrapbooking 15 years ago?
Yes I was. I was just starting to.
How did you get started scrapbooking?
I was a paper scrapper at first. But I didn't have much room in my appartment back then and the dinner table was full and messy. I had to tidy things up before having dinner So I started to think of ways to get more organised and thought that it would be perfect to go digital. I googled it, turned out to be an already existing thing and the rest is history.
I even taught other people to digiscrap back then.

When did you start scrapbooking?
I think it was 2004 or 2005.
When did you join SSD?
*Checking*... My first order was on october 14th 2010
Did you lurk first?
Yes I did. I never made an online purchase before, so I had to check things out before buying something and getting active on messageboards.
When did you upload your first layout to the gallery?
August 1st 2014
Show it to us!

How would you describe your scrapbooking style?
Never thought of that one. Kinda playful with the elements and shadows I guess...?
How many pages have you made this month?
Only the 5 LO's made for this challenge I have been inactive for more than 2 years due to personal reasons. I'm starting to get back on my feet now and trying to catch up.
Have you ever paper scrapped?
Yes I have. But not for long. Digital scrapping has endless possibilities and I can keep re-using the kits.
What's your favorite color palette to scrap with? (name at least two colors)
I love colors, mosty the soft ones. But I like blue and pink.
Have you ever taught anyone else to scrapbook?
Yes I have. I even made a (Dutch) messageboard about scrapbooking. Those group of people are still my friends to this day and we are still active members.
What were you like as a 15 year old?
I was in a not so happy place at that age. Lost 2 grandparents within 5 months, struggled with severe health problems and ended up in the hospital and my parents got divorced after 25 years of marriage, Wasn't doing so well in school because of all this, so my mental state wasn't that good either. But I survived and it made me stronger, so that's a plus
If you went back 15 years, what would be most surprising about your current self?
I guess how strong I turned out after all I had to deal with the past years.
What was your life like 15 years ago?
I guess not all that bad. But my life is way better now. I've learned a lot, lost a lot and gained a lot.

If you went back 15 years, what would be most surprising about your current self? *How much of a Dog person I have become, I was always 100% team Cat, until we got our Snoopy..... now I can't imagine life without a dog.
What was your life like 15 years ago? *I had to get a calculator to figure out the year.... 2006 - that was a year and a half... I had a 4 and almost 1 year old, we had a roof over our heads but not one that was good enough to keep the elements out. We ended up making the decision to move later in the year, we took what we could fit in the trunk of a car (which is not easy to do with a toddler and a baby. The move was good..... eventually...... it was the beginning of a slow, but steady change for the better.

What was your life like 15 years ago? *
This was a crazy week 15 years ago. I lost my most favorite person in the world, my grandmother, and I started dating my future husband in the same week. So the week was an emotional roller coaster ride. 2006 was an interesting year. I started dating my husband, I had my first teaching job teaching emotionally handicapped teens and spent many hours in the car driving 5 hours to see my future husband. He was still in college in Tallahassee and I lived in my home town.

Were you scrapbooking 15 years ago? I was! It was on paper though, not online.
How did you get started scrapbooking? When I was 18, I spent a summer working in a scrapbook store. It got me hooked! I took classes there for free, and got a sweet discount to build up my stash. I'm not even sure how much money I actually made that summer, lol.
When did you start scrapbooking? I was 18, so 21 years ago...
When did you join SSD? I joined in 2018, thanks to Rebecca, aka Knittingbec! We were chatting about scrapping, and I was lamenting how I didn't really have the time/space to lay my things out, and then be able to think about it, arrange it, etc. The kids would always come in and touch/play with it.
Did you lurk first? Of course! I'm more introverted, and usually like to read the room before I warm up.
When did you upload your first layout to the gallery? Feb of 2019! It was the first passport I participated in.
Show it to us!

How would you describe your scrapbooking style? Ooooh, I was just chatting about this yesterday! I don't know if I have a style yet; it's always evolving. I'm drawn more to 1-page layouts for my albums, but I also am a pretty dedicated PL scrapper, and those are mostly 2-page/week. I love playing with clusters, and scrap-lifting my own pages from sketches on Pinterest.
How many pages have you made this month? 8, not counting the PL I have almost done on my screen right now.
Have you ever paper scrapped? Yup! I paper-scrapped for a long time before coming on here. I love digital scrapping so much more though! It's nice to be able to rearrange embellishments to my heart's content, and to be able to put it down, and find it exactly as I left it when I come back. It's also nice when I have it printed out, because the albums are so much lighter and easier to pull out and look at.
What's your favorite color palette to scrap with? I think I'm drawn to aquas and grays. I mostly pull colors from the photos I'm working with, and try to incorporate one or two pops of bright contrasting colors to help draw your eye around.
Have you ever taught anyone else to scrapbook? Nope, though I've sent a lot of people to this site to teach themselves!
What were you like as a 15 year old? I was a quieter, pretty nerdy kid. I loved reading and listening to country music. Similar to today, I had a few very deep friendships vs. lots of acquaintances.
If you went back 15 years, what would be most surprising about your current self? I'd probably be surprised about the kind of parent I've turned out to be. I thought I wouldn't ever let my kids watch TV or play video games (fail.) I was sure I would be a stricter parent, but it turns out I'm WAY more relaxed. And I'm so happy I am, just that 15-years-ago Laura probably would fall over from shock.
What was your life like 15 years ago? I was living in the Bay Area, in CA, with my fiancé. I worked as a special-ed teacher on an emergency credential in Oakland, while I was planning our wedding and attending full-time night school to get certified. It was a VERY busy time. I was constantly on the go!
