I am really excited to have Nancie, founder of ScrapArtist, here with us this month! I’m not sure I will ever forget the day I was cruising through the freebie gallery at ScrapbookBytes and saw her work for the first time! I loved it! She was a new digital designer (for scrapbooking anyway), but I wanted MORE! Not long after that, I saw call for a new site that hadn’t even launched yet, ScrapArtist and realized the owner was also the owner of those freebies I loved. I immediately sent in my application and was thrilled when I was chosen for the ScrapArtist team (she was the only designer there at the time). Here is Nancie’s contributions to this month’s THE DIGI FILES:
This is the LAST contribution to be revealed from THE DIGI FILES 10 this month. You can now see EVERYTHING that is included in December’s issue of THE DIGI FILES here. Then, if you haven’t already purchased TDF10, hurry into the store and grab them, because after December 31st, they will go into the contributor’s store for full retail value!

When I first started scrapbooking, I joined an Art Inspiration challenge at Two Peas in a Bucket. We used beautiful pieces of artwork from Art.com as our inspiration. After running back and forth to the scrapbook store to find supplies to do the challenges, I realized I could more quickly create my own “backgrounds” using Photoshop. I loved working with brushes and different colors and textures. From there, it was a natural progression to creating digital papers and elements.
I started designing in 2004
Mostly a designer – not much time to scrap lately!
More than I want to think about! LOL! With running SA that is most of my time now unfortunately, so I don’t have much time to design for myself anymore or to scrap. I miss it!
I think it is my Digital Distressing Kit. The reason is because scrappers can use it over and over, plus it includes a tutorial which I really enjoyed creating and hope to do more tutorials.
Digital Distressing Kit (see above).
Thunderstorms, Coffee, My family, Walking in the Rain, The Mountains, The Ocean, the feeling after a great workout, a fire in the fireplace, good friends, great food (not in any order).
Hatred, Violence, Ignorance, People that honk at you in traffic, People that ride your tail in traffic (we have alot of both in MIchigan! LOL!) , the feeling in your stomach when you are running late, stress, watching the news lately, laundry, flying.
Here are some of my favorite products by Nancie:
