A Little About Me…
Hello and welcome to my new little nest in the great big “digi world” I am so excited to share my heart and vision for this site with you! But first, a little about me…
My name is Janet Phillips and I am the wife of nine years to a great guy named Jason and we are the parents of four amazing children. Every day when I look at these people I know that I am truly, truly blessed.
I have been digital scrapbooking for almost four years. In that four years I have been very involved in the digital scrapbooking community. I have served on creative teams for Jasbeanie, MandaBean, Mindy Teresawa, Lynn Grieveson, Dani Mogstad, Sweet Shoppe Designs, Shabby Princess, the Digi Dares, Meredith Fenwick, Cat Scrap, as well as serving on guest teams for Gina Cabrera and Gina Miller. I have been published in Digital Scrapbooking Magazine, Creating Keepsakes, and Scrapbooks, Etc. In 2007 I was named one of Creating Keepsakes Scrapbooker of the Year finalists and enjoyed a trip to Las Vegas hanging out with some of the best scrapbookers and designers in the industry.
In 2006 I started designing digital scrapbooking templates and loved that I was finally able to give back to the community. From March of 2007-January 2008 I have made Scrapbook Graphics my home. I have truly enjoyed creating templates and helping others preserve their memories. There is nothing I like better than getting emails saying that something I have created has helped someone preserve one of their precious family moments.

Now, on to the site….
What you see here…THE DAILY DIGI… is a little piece of my heart. It came straight from my heart and I hope that it goes straight to yours.
After a few years of spending too much time online, there came a day when I just stopped. I just stopped surfing the net, stopped participating in message boards, stopped eyeing all the galleries. It wasn’t because of a lack of desire — these are all great places to “hang out” and my passion for scrapping was still strong. Instead, it came from a desire to spend less time in front of a computer and more time in front of the people I love.
The problem was, as much as I loved the break from the computer screen, I realized I was missing out on a lot of really cool stuff! It was from the message boards, galleries, and blog-hopping that I learned so much over the past few years! It was in these places that I learned to scrap, that I learned how to use my camera better, and that I found out about the many, many amazing designers and scrappers in the digital community. I didn’t want to be tied to my computer all day and yet I didn’t want to miss out on so much great information and inspiration!
And one day I had a thought. That thought turned into a dream. And now that dream has become a reality.
THE DAILY DIGI is going to be a place full of inspiration, information, and ideas that will come in easily digestible amounts. In ten minutes or less each day you will find tips, tools, and tricks to help you in this digital age we live in. I want you to feel inspired, to feel challenged, AND to feel the freedom to step away from the computer and start doing all those things that you have been dreaming of in your heart.
And my partner in crime (and correcting typos):
“I started scrapbooking on my computer in 2003, but didn’t discover digital scrapbooking communities and all they have to offer until 2004, after reading a special issue of Memory Makers Magazine. I truly love this hobby and have found so much joy in preserving my family’s memories digitally. I have been honored to serve on creative teams for Michelle Coleman, Nancie Rowe Janitz, ScrapArtist, Hollie McCaig, Gina Cabrera of Digital Design Essentials, Dani Mogstad, Janet Phillips, and Shabby Princess. I have also had layouts and hybrid projects published by Simple Scrapbooks and Digital Scrapbooking Magazines. In 2007, I started my own font business called Fontologie.
For several months I have had a strong desire to help people be able to more quickly learn about all of the cool things in digi world. I have been wishing for a way to share the things that have made digi scrapping such a rewarding hobby for me. There are so many tips and tricks I have learned over the years that have made it possible for me to spend more time with my family making memories and less time documenting them. I have been busy in my off-line life teaching people how to digi scrap and saw a real need for a place they could always rely on to have great information and resources. There is so much out there in digi world for us, but I think if I were new to digital scrapbooking, I would be overwhelmed and not know where to start. When Janet emailed and told me about her new site, I felt like my prayer had been answered and I begged her to let me help in anyway I could, so here I am! I am thrilled to be a part of this new and amazing site!!!”
