Welcome! My name is Laura, and I am the designer behind Wishing Well Creations’ products — digital scrapbooking supplies which can be used in the creation of digital scrapbooking pages, digital or printed photo books, and/or all sorts of hybrid paper crafting (such as invitations, baby announcements, cards, gifts, party favors, etc.). I also own DigiScrapWishingWell.com, which is the online store that sells everything.
After a decade as a graphic designer who specialized mainly in web site design, I stumbled across digital scrapbooking after I had kids and… wow. For years, I had been collecting photos and memorabilia with the intention of putting it all into scrapbooks, but I found it to be almost impossible to work on projects which required our kitchen table to be covered with supplies for days on end. Then, after having kids I found that by the time I got out the photos, the glue, and the supplies, my boys had already woken up from their naps and I had to put it all away again! Sound familiar? Yep, exactly.
Digital scrapbooking made it possible for me to get rid of the mess… without abandoning the creative control I loved (I was never really satisfied when using the basic templates available at most online photo book sites). Instead, now whenever I find myself with a few spare minutes, I can simply sit down at my computer and throw together a page or two — no need to clean-up the mess mid-project in order to fit our family’s dinner on the table. And at the end of the year — or after an event, vacation, etc. — it’s so easy to just print all of the pages into one photo book.
Once I began scrapbooking digitally, the designer in me took over and it wasn’t long before I started making my own digital images/supplies, sharing them with friends, and selling them online. That’s how this web site was born.
While many of my creations are available for purchase, you’ll find that I also give away a decent number of freebies… I do think that it’s the best way to get those of you who haven’t tried scrapping digitally to give it a try. I got started on freebies, as well, and found that it was a great way to figure out what I liked and give it all a whirl. If you join my mailing list, follow this blog, or follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you’ll hear all about the freebies (as well as the tutorials I try to post regularly on this blog). My goal is to get as many of you as possible to “go digital”… with the hope being that we can all get our memories out of boxes and closets, and into something more meaningful.
Thanks for stopping by to check out my little corner of the internet… I hope you enjoy it! Have a question? Shoot it my direction. I’d love to hear from you!
