BIO: I grew up in Utah and attended Brigham Young University where I met my husband in physical science class.  I graduated in Early Childhood Education and enjoyed teaching kindergarten for four years.  Now I stay at home with my daughters, ages five and one, who are most often the subjects in my scrapbook layouts.  My love of photography began in fifth grade when I was given an old camera of my mom’s.  Back then I wanted to take photos of beautiful places more than photos of people.  Now I take my Nikon with me just about everywhere I go and take photos of beautiful places, special people, and ordinary kinds of stuff!  My passion for scrapbooking began in middle school when my best friend and I began collecting fun papers and stickers from our local craft store.  It was thirteen years later when I discovered the digital scrapbooking world and I am so glad I did!  I love that I can make mistakes and undo them, there is no mess, I can use supplies over and over again, and I can have more than one copy of a layout printed!


1. Templates–even though someone else created them I can still make them my own AND it cuts down on time so that I can get more scrapping done!
2. Staples–I use them ALL the time.  Maybe too much…
3.  Stitches–there are lots of great ones out there but my go-to stitches are from Carina Gardner’s Essentials Collection
4.  Scallop Templates–my favorites are by Crystal Wilkerson
5. Handwriting fonts–I especially love the ones at Fonts for Peas


The “Less is More” idea describes my style best.  I like to keep my pages simple, often using just one or two photos.  I try to keep them from getting too cluttered with elements.  Journaling has become very important to me and I like to journal on every layout if I can.


The first person to come to mind is a wonderfully talented woman who was on the Jessica Sprague team with me, Miki.  Although I would say our styles are a little different, I love every layout she creates.  Seriously.


There is nothing like the support of an online scrapbooking community!  Being part of a team gives me a sense of purpose and a whole lot of motivation.  I am excited to get to know a new group of talented people and to be able to use the wide variety of products The Daily Digi has to offer.  I am looking forward to being inspired and supported and hope to inspire and support others in their memory keeping endeavors!

BIO: Originally from Utah, my husband and I currently live in sunny San Diego. I work full-time and love to create when I find the time. I have a bunch of adorable nieces and nephews who are the reason I started scrapbooking. I also love to read, crochet, go to the beach, and hang out with my husband whenever I get the chance.


Textured solids such as Kraftastic Winter Paper Pack from Gina Cabrera

RadLab for photo editing

Handwriting fonts. Right now my favorite is Corradine Handwriting. I also love Pea Sadie and DJB Angel Baby.

Great kits. I’m a digi supply hoarder! I am inspired by gorgeous supplies , and love having a great stash of items to choose from.

Templates. When I first began scrapbooking, I couldn’t create a layout with using a template. I still love using them and find they are a big timesaver for me. Some of my favorite template designers are Nettio Designs, and One Little Bird.


I appreciate many scrapbooking styles, but find my own style trends toward clean lines. My style has evolved quite a bit as I’ve identified what comes naturally and developed a sort of “mojo” that works best for me.


There are so many inspiring scrapbookers; it’s hard to narrow it down! Lately I’ve been inspired by Kaleigh Wiles, Peppermint Granberg, and Maggie Holmes.


Are you kidding me? It’s The Daily Digi! I have followed this site from the beginning and have learned SO MUCH from the amazingly relevant blog posts. This site is one of my staples in life, and I idolize this great team.


Right now, it’s this one. You know the heart and exclamation mark on the photo? It came from a note my husband left me in my shoe. Every time I look at this, my heart melts.

Project Check-In


Supplies: The Daily Details by The Digi Chick

Raise your hand if you started a new scrapbooking or photography project on January 1st. It’s a popular time of year for people to kick-off Project Life, Project 52, P365, and other on-going scrapbooking projects. I’ve been browsing the galleries and I am so inspired by all the creative spins on these projects!

So today, let’s do a quick “check-in”. How is your project going so far?

I decided to undertake a photography challenge and a scrapbooking project. For photography, I participated in a Photo-A-Day challenge for the month of January, which I highlighted earlier in the month. It was a great project and I’m thrilled with the results.

In scrapbooking, my project is a combination pocket scrapbook album and Project 52. I’m using the pocket-style pages and scrapbooking weekly spreads over the course of the year. And so far, I’m really enjoying the project!

Think It’s Too Late to Start? Think Again!

If you’re interested in starting a project like a pocket scrapbook album, but you think you have to wait until January 1, 2014, think again! Smile I started my album in October. Why? Because the amazing pocket scrapbooking-related products finally wore me down and I could no longer resist them! Now that I’ve been doing it for a while, I am so happy with the project.

Why pay for fonts?


The Daily Digi My Life in Print bonus collab kit. Rockwell font.


With all the free fonts out there, you might wonder why a digital scrapbooker would ever choose to pay for a font? Well, there are plenty of reasons and I knew that Steph would be my best resource to go to for this topic since she is a self-proclaimed “font geek”. I decided to ask her some questions about this topic.


Why is it worth paying for some fonts?

The biggest differences between most free fonts and paid fonts is the kerning! The spacing between key letters like AV, Av, F and any vowel, T and any vowel, etc. You can see it explained a little in this post the fontographers that create paid fonts usually spend many, many hours manipulating the space between all letter pairs, not just key ligatures (some free fonts may have key ligatures done).

Another big difference in paid fonts (especially the very expensive ones) are super smooth around the edges (unless it is a grunge style font). Most of the characters have are hand drawn in a vector based program (like Illustrator). The fontographers creating these fonts will spend weeks and months on ONE character. Each glyph really is a unique work of art (this is one of the reasons I love looking at the character maps at My Fonts and studying each glyph and the differences and similarities ***NERD ALERT***)

The last big difference between paid fonts and free fonts is the alternate characters. Sigh! I love them! This is how two people can have the same font, create the same word, and have a completely different look, because of all the additional swashes and swoops included! You do have to have the full version of Photoshop, Illustrator, or another program that can access these characters in order to use them, but they are so FUN!


How do you find CU ok fonts?

The first thing to know is there is a difference between commercial use and what digital designers do. Many, many typographers are not okay with their fonts being used in digital scrapbook design. Just because something means CU doesn’t mean that OUR version of CU is covered. Most CU licenses allow for a font to be included in design work for print, or web, or other things the terms of use spells out. Some fonts specifically say they CAN be used for digital scrapbook design; others say specifically that they may not. Sometimes, it is left up to interpretation and in these cases, I usually email to ask if how I will be using it is okay.  I emailed the designer of Samantha because I wanted to use it for a project on The Daily Digi and she let me purchase a commercial license through her that would let me use the font for the purpose I had in mind. The only way to know for sure is to read the terms and if you are still in doubt, email the designer or foundry.

Another  item worth noting is that many commercial licenses come with licenses for multiple computers, but here again, you have to read the terms. Most of the time it is a license for multiple computers within the same business. Other times it might be multiple computers within the same location (so if you have people working for you, but offsite, that wouldn’t fly). I have also seen multiple licenses for designers doing work for the company the font is licensed to.


What are some of your favorite paid fonts?

I kind of have an expensive font habit…meaning I like to buy expensive fonts. Here are few of the paid fonts I love:

  • Licious Script: it’s one I used in the Digital Scrapbooking Manual and is similar to one often seen at California Adventure (which I didn’t notice until after I created the manual, but maybe my subconscious was influenced.
  • Samantha Script: is sentimental to me (my daughter’s name) and that’s the reason I bought it, but I love it too.
  • Paradise Script

I tend to find foundries that I love and follow for long periods of time:

  • P22 was a favorite of mine for many years when I first started digital scrapbooking.
  • Typodermic is a popular on among digital designers because he lets designers use his fonts in digital design.
  • If you’ve been in digital scrapbooking for a long time, you might remember Ronna Penner who was a fontographer first, then a digital designer for a while. She was one of my very first digital purchases (if not THE first). One of the very first fonts she made won a lot of awards. It’s been really fun to watch her career.
  • I had been buying up Sudtipos fonts for a while before I realized they were from the same foundry (remember when you could always see this one in The Digi Files graphics?) I seem to like everything they do.
  • Ed’s fonts are the ones I’ve been studying and drooling over for the past several months. One of these days, I will buy some!


How do you organize your fonts?

How do I keep it all straight? I have folders in my font folder where I put verified CU fonts, verified digital design fonts, etc. I would never remember otherwise!

What paid fonts do the Daily Digi team members love?

We’ve shared a lot of great free fonts in previous posts and we love a great font for free just as much as anyone, but we are also willing to pay for beautiful fonts that we know will give our digital creations the perfect touch. There are some great font designers in digiland and plenty of amazing resources for really high quality fonts all over the web. I asked our team to share some of their favorite paid fonts that they love. Here’s our list:

Other premium fonts


Many of the fonts that come packaged with word processing programs are also great fonts so don’t forget about those either!

Hi, I’m Maya of Maya de Groot Designs. I’m a 20 year old student from Amersfoort, the Netherlands. I study Architecture at the University of Technology in Delft and live with two other architecture students in a student house in Pijnacker. On the weekends, I go home to my parents and 14 year old brother. My studies take up most of my time, but when I do have some free time I love to have fun with friends, be creative, design and scrap.






I love to doodle and I wanted to make a Steampunk style kit for a long time, so I decided to combine those two. While working on my Zen & the Art of: Steam Machines kit I started playing around with the doodled elements to see if it would work with the theme. I wanted to make it look like it’s a complete background that takes over the frame/picture. I had the elements placed the way I wanted, but I couldn’t think of a title or journaling. So I saved the page and started watching TV. That night the Titanic was on and when Jack started singing “Josephine and her flying machine”, I knew that would be my title. This is one of my favourite art journal pages, since it combines my love for Zentangles, Steampunk and Art Nouveau. A tip on art journaling: I’m really bad at journaling, I just can’t do it. But I love the style of the layouts, so I use lyrics instead. No need to come up with my own words!


During the summer holidays of 2005 my niece and I got all excited about making our own jewellery. Two years later, when I was on vacation my aunt bought my niece and me some scrapbook letters, so we could make a scrapbook page about the summer. I got all enthusiastic and told my mom about it, but she wasn’t so sure. I just got all these beads and stuff and she thought: ooh it’s just another hobby. But I really wanted to do this, so I convinced my mom how much fun it would be. We bought lots of paper stuff (only made some pages), because when searching online for paper supplies, my mom discovered digital scrapbooking. We tried and both fell in love with it. That was fall 2007. The very first forum we joined was and it became our home. My mom and I started as a regular members, soon started CT-ing for Oscraps designers and both became a Site CT member at Oscraps. I love scrapping and one day I just thought let’s try designing. That was a couple of years ago. Just making some freebies, but in the summer of 2010 I decided I really wanted to design and since December 16th 2010 I’m part of the Oscraps design team! And now my mom is even CT-ing for me!

Inspiration, for me, is everywhere. Magazines, TV-commercials, Ads, Movies, Songs, Architecture, Colour palettes, everything. I just love to get creative with paper and paint or photoshop and combine those in scrapbooking.


Computer: I have a HP Elitebook 8540W ( 15,6 inch, Windows 7 Professional 64-bit, IntelCore i7, NVIDIA Quadro FX 880M graphics 1 GB video memory, 4GB RAM, Weight: 6lbs 7.2oz), but I mostly use it for my architecture study (needs to run heavy programs). For designing I often use my parents Acer Aspire 7750 Laptop. (17,3 inch, Windows 7, IntelCore i5, 6GB DDR3 Memory, 500 GB HDD).
Program: I use Photoshop Elements 5.0 to design. I do have PSE9 PSE10, PhotoshopCS5 and IllustratorCS5, but I don’t used these to design much, mostly because I don’t know exactly where everything is/how everything works in these programs. And pencils, fine liners, markers and paint for handmade elements.
Camera: I have a Canon Powershot SX 10IS
Anything Else: LaCie Starck 1,5 TB EHD, Canon CanoScan 4400F, Wacom Bamboo Fun M Tablet.
A tip: don’t be afraid to try something new! There are so any styles and ways to make a page, there’s no right or wrong way. And with digital scrapbooking you can just start over if you don’t like it or use the Ctrl-Z option. Don’t know where to start with a new style, try scraplifting a layout or join a specific style challenge.

Zen & the Art of: Steam Machines is my favourite product. I loved the style, which I discovered while watching Castle (Season 3, Episode 4). Since the day I decided I wanted to design, I’ve wanted to make a steampunk style kit. The dark colours, Victorian/vintage style and gears. I started on it two years ago and made some parts every once in a while. Last summer I decided I needed to finish it, I did just before my 20th Birthday. So it was a sort of birthday present to myself, to finally have finished this kit. I love that it can be used for all sorts of layouts, Art Journaling, Heritage, Clean, Clustered, Collage. I can’t wait to make a part two (but I guess that will take some time before it’s ready).

Travelers Treasure Box is my most popular product, probably because it has been featured on several sites. And I think because it’s a travel kit and people like to scrap their vacation pictures. (at least that are the type of pictures I like to scrap most). I wanted to create a travel kit, with colours and elements that could be used for any type of vacation I had been to. I started looking at pictures from Rome, France, the UK and Los Angeles and decided on colours that would work for pictures of all of these vacations.

Virtual Vacation


Credits: Stamped Alpha and Travelers Treasure Box by Maya De Groot

When I listened to Steph, Katie and Peppermint talking about dream vacations on Episode 50 of the DigiShow, I thought it would be fun to ask The Daily Digi team what their dream vacations would be.

Cross-Country Trip

Wendy mentioned that going across the country in an RV would be perfect for her. I know that a lot of people have that dream – to see the country from the comfort of an RV, taking the scenic route and experiencing new places. Low-key and totally perfect for a family or retirees!

Katie also mentioned that she wants to travel across the country, but her preferred mode of transportation would be via train because it’s a fun way to see the scenery.

Bora Bora

Jenn’s dream vacation is to go to Bora Bora or Moorea in the French Polynesian Islands, and stay for at least a week in one of those bungalows that are right over the lagoon. There are dolphins swimming around right underneath the bungalows. She said that if she was ever are lucky enough to get to go there, she’d want to try everything the resort had to offer – helicopter rides around the islands, scuba diving, swimming the the dolphins and sting rays, etc. I have to say, that sounds pretty great!


Tara and Melissa both dream of taking their children to Disney while it’s still magical to them. Steph said that she has a good friend that is a huge Disney fan and has never been and Steph would LOVE to take her! Actually, Steph wishes she could take anyone that hasn’t been! And since I asked about a “dream vacation” I like her big dreaming here! Smile

European Vacation

The European vacation was a popular choice! Trina would go overseas and see the England, Germany, France, Italy and Spain. Jacki would love to see Paris. Amelia even wants to bike across Europe! Tara’s second dream vacation is to travel to Northern Ireland to see where her Dad’s family is from and to tour all the places she has photos of him in, to see the streets he played in, visit the pubs and bars he played in with his band.

Cottage on the Lake

Katie dreams of renting a house by a lake for an entire summer to lounge about reading books and hang out with her husband and kids. She imagines a setting like from the old movie “On Golden Pond”. This is definitely my style of vacation!

Beach Vacation

Melissa also dreams of a beach vacation – and any beach will do!

Australia and New Zealand

Steph dreams of going to visit Australia and New Zealand…a month on each would be great! Jacki wants to take an RV trip along the coast of New Zealand. That sounds amazing!

Prince Edward Island, Canada

Steph also mentioned that she would also really love to visit Prince Edward Island with her sisters and mom.


I think I got some great ideas to add to my dream vacation list! What is YOUR dream vacation?

Wondering what to scrap?

daily digi what to scrap

When you stop to think about it, you will probably realize that there are plenty of topics and events out there to scrap about. Life seems to go in cycles that include events and holidays and those become a natural focus for our memory keeping. However, there are also plenty of everyday life type of moments that make for great scrapbook pages or even full albums. We are always looking for fun topics for scrapping here at The Daily Digi and we even have an entire category of our blog dedicated to scrapworthy ideas.
