I have been talking about and thinking about and dreaming about going back to my first love and the reason I started digi scrapping and digi designing: researching my family history and creating scrapbooking layouts and books from that research. I started digi designing because I could not find what I wanted for my pages/books and then somehow, I drifted away … well, I am going back to my beginnings and I am excited to announce I have have some awesome help coming along with me.
Watch here for more genealogy news, including research tips and genealogy scrapbooking ideas from my Creative Team member, Mary. Check out her wonderful layout below. She has such a great way of presenting the family history research she has done. Not only is she an amazing scrapper, she is an enthusiastic and creative genealogist ready to help us all.
I have also enlisted the aid of Dana, another member of my Creative Team to provide tips and tutorials for using the My Memories software. When Dana told me, “I absolutely adore this program. I would not be digital scrapbooking at all if this program did not exist. I call it scrapbooking for dummies.” I knew you all could benefit from her expertise. I will have a special section on the blog where Dana and I can share with you and where you can ask questions about the software and receive help.
Last, but not least, dear friend Rebecca will be contributing to my blog as well. Rebecca is a self proclaimed “genealogy newbie” and this gives her a different perspective on how to approach family research and creating the resulting scrapbooks and printed books. She is not alone, many of you are new to this or feel like you are and the journey IS easier when we are traveling together. Look for posts that talk about the journey and the steps accomplished. By her own admission, Rebecca is OCD about many parts of life but when it comes to connecting scrapping with genealogy things just never seem to get finished. You never know what information she will bring to the table but she loves sharing tools and tips that work to help us save time in everyday life so we have more time to spend doing what we love.
I hope you will share with us about your journey; we are a community.
Best regards & hugs,
