Have you ever wanted to learn how to get all your digital pictures onto a scrapbook page?
Do you love the idea of having the power to make all your creative dreams come true right on your computer!?

With digital scrapbooking you can let your creativity run wild while preserving and showcasing your memories.
I started scrapping about 16 years ago when I was pregnant with my daughter. Of course it was traditional paper scrapping. I was hooked immediately!! I love everything about scrapping. I took the leap into digital scrapbooking about 7 years ago- At first I was sure I would still paper scrap as well. But as I have gotten more and more into digi I am absolutely in love with it!! It is so exciting to challenge myself and learn new techniques. What I love the most is that Digi has no limits- I feel like anything I dream up I can put into a scrap page.
I decided to open GingerScraps- an online digital scrapbooking community to share my love of this wonderful craft. We have now grown into a full service scrapbooking site!

Hi everyone,

I am new here and have a question about the Cookie Jar. August is a closed forum already?? Doesn't the challenges run for the whole month of August? :)

Hi and Welcome!!

I do not know who closed the August Cookie Jar, I am sure it was done by accident. YES the challenges run all month (and sometimes into the next before I remember to close it! But don't count on that.). I have reopened the thread. Thank you for pointing it out to us!!
