Hi, I live in Colorado and have been lurking for a little while. I have been paper scraping since the early 90's and have been thinking of making the move into Digi scraping. I have so much paper scrap stuff that I will probably start with "hybrid" scraping until my stash gets down. Thanks for letting me join this group. I can't wait to see what everyone has done and learn for everyone as well.

Happy scraping,

Hi Kim! Welcome to GS! I was a paper scrapper too. I am so much happier digiscrappin. I finally donated my paper stuff with the exception of a few things because I was so glad to not have the mess anymore. Glad you are joining us!

Hi and welcome to the wonderful world of digi and GingerScraps. I too was a paper scrapper. As I started transitioning many years ago, I'd print out some new digital pages and add a few of my paper sulpplies to it. Then I'd mix printed digital pages and traditional paper pages in the same album. I've managed to sell or donate a lot of my supplies ( although I still own a bunch).

i love digi so much more. Jump in and have fun with this wonderful community.

HI Kim!! I like the play on your username ;)

I also came from paper scrapping and even though I gave so much away, I still have so much (I think somehow they are reproducing when I'm not looking)! LOL! I do lots of hybrid scrapping, I'll make cards and tags or print outs. I switched to digi-scrapping last year and LOVE it!! I can do it anywhere I have a laptop!!

Can't wait until you cross over to the dark side and see your layouts!! .... Post all your paper/hybrid projects, too!!

Welcome!! I converted to digi from paper and sold my stash for $650 (was a steal). I have never looked back. You will enjoy the forum!

Hi Kim! Welcome to Gingerscraps!
I started paper scrapping when my daughter was born (20 years ago). I switched completely to digi in 2012. I sold most of my paper supplies, but kept a bit "just in case"...it's been in storage ever since!
There are so many wonderful things about digi scrapping. I can't wait to see your creations!

Hi Kim! Welcome from another former paper scrapper!! :D I paperscrapped for about 10 years, but then switched over to digi about 4 years ago! Can't wait to see your layouts and projects!

Hiya Kim! Welcome to Gingerscraps!! I, too am a paper scrapping--I still do-just can't give up the hands-on feel of it;), but I love digi too!! So glad my sis got me to try it a few years ago! Can't wait to see your work!

Hello Kim!

Once you make the move to Digi you'll see a huge difference!
But I'm sure paper scrapping is fun too.

Happy to have you with us!

Welcome here at Gingerscraps, I hope you will love it here too! Cannot share any paper-scrapping experiences, because I always was a digi-woman ;) Started with doing signs and animations, but then I get infected by scrappingmania - - - so different ways but arriving at the same place: Gingerscraps! :kisses

Welcome to GS, it's great to have you here. I used to do paper scrapbooking until I discovered digital scrapbooking. My home office is now not nearly as cluttered! I hope you like it here and I look forward to seeing your layouts in the gallery.
