A graphic designer for the printing industry by trade, Wendy was creating rudimentary “digital” scrapbooks using inexpensive scrapbooking software and Photoshop in the mid 1990’s. A whole new world of artistic expression was opened up to her and she was immediately taken with digiscrapping. Wendy began designing templates based on her layouts and began selling her designs in early 2007.
Karen has been teaching with NAODS since January 2013. You can find all of her classes inside the membership area. Some of them include: “How to Work with Stamps”, “How to Stretch Your Stash”, “Holiday Gift Ideas” and many more. She has been a traditional scrapper since the early 1970’s and became a digital designer selling kits and other products in January 2010. Karen also appeared on CreativeLive in March of 2014.
Vicki discovered digital scrapbooking in 2007, and instantly fell in love with it. It let her combine her geeky-techie software-loving side with a way to preserve the thousands of photos she’d been taking since she’d retired a few years before. Digital scrapbooking led her to designing/selling digital scrapbooking kits and that, in turn, opened the door to digital art/life journaling. From there she started exploring the world of hands-on mixed media art and loves to incorporate her art into her digital products.
Michelle Stelling founded the National Association of Digital Scrapbookers in 2007, aka "PhotoEditing & DigiScrap Academy". She is the lead instructor for beginner, intermediate and advanced digiScrappers and Photoshop Elements users and taught over 6,000 digital scrapbookers and graphic designers throughout various colleges and via the internet for over 30 years. Her students range from South Africa, New Zealand, Australia, Canada, Texas, New York, California and everywhere in between.
