Peggy has always been the family record keeper, but after fumbling at paper scrapping for a couple of years, found digi-scrapping in 2007. She began with Digital Image Suite, then Photoshop Elements 7. She has steadily updated and now loves the latest version. Having succumbed to temptation over all those years, she found she needed good systems to organize all her supplies. She enjoys doing a little designing, artwork, and lots of photography, gardening, and family history. She has published several family history books using digi-scrapping. She lives in Washington state, blissfully retired, and has three grown children and nine grandchildren.
Linda, from Linda Cumberland Designs, began her scrapping as a traditional paper scrapper in the year 2000 and discovered digital scrapping in 2002. Not long after she began digital scrapping, Linda was creating and selling her own products. She still enjoys merging her digital experience with her traditional scrapping to create photo albums, cards, and wall art for family and friends.
Linda has been married for 44 years. She and her hubby are blessed with 3 wonderful sons, a beautiful daughter-in-law, and 5 fabulous grandchildren, who are most times the focus of her layouts. When not designing, Linda enjoys teaching her 2 oldest granddaughters the art of digital scrapping, crafting, watching old movies, and traveling to visit family and friends.
Linda sadly retired from creating beautiful digital pieces in 2017, however, we are happy to announce that she will continue to teach with us! Yahoo!
A graphic designer for the printing industry by trade, Wendy was creating rudimentary “digital” scrapbooks using inexpensive scrapbooking software and Photoshop in the mid 1990’s. She even designed her first brag book using Quark Xpress and Photoshop a full year before she discovered the digital scrapbooking world in June of 2006. A whole new world of artistic expression was opened up to her and she was immediately taken with digiscrapping. Wendy began designing templates based on her layouts and began selling her designs in early 2007.

Vicki discovered digital scrapbooking in 2007, and instantly fell in love with it. It let her combine her geeky-techie software-loving side with a way to preserve the thousands of photos she’d been taking since she’d retired a few years before. Digital scrapbooking led her to designing/selling digital scrapbooking kits and that, in turn, opened the door to digital art/life journaling. From there she started exploring the world of hands-on mixed media art and loves to incorporate her art into her digital products. Vicki says nothing could have surprised her more than to have discovered, so late in life, that she had a creative side and she loves sharing her unexpected journey with others.
