Hi Everyone!

We are very excited to introduce another brand new GDS Designer!
Please help us welcome

Amanda aka Outside The Box Design Studio


Here's a little bio about her in her own words:

" I grew up with 3 sisters until age 11, when we moved to Indiana and my parents became "houseparents" in a Children's Christian Home. There our family expanded to 16! I met my DH in Ky. at college. We went on to be teachers, pastors, and missionaries in Mexico and Honduras. August we will celebrate 30 years together- hard to believe! We have two children, 26 & 20, and one little angel (Cassandra) whom we had adopted but were forced to leave behind in Honduras due to law changes. She will always be in our hearts.
I began paper scrapping while we lived in Honduras. Digital Scrap came my way 3 1/2 years ago. Scrapping all kinds of memories is important to me. I want to remember the struggles as well as the mountain top days. I love to paint, sketch and do altered art, art journaling, faith journals and collage. Many people have helped me greatly along the way. I wanted to design almost immediately but knew almost nothing. I wanted to bring my art into digital form. I am only beginning to do just that, and I am first to say that I have a lot left to learn about design. I use PSE, Paint.net and Artrage. I am happy to open shoppe here at GDS! I hope you will join in the new Artful Scrap challenge (http://godigitalscrapbooking.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=688) that I will be hosting!"

Here's a peek at her new store (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/shop/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=29_180) here at GDS

Art journaling has been taking the internet by storm. I'm so happy to see it here at GDS! I'm a wannabe, just starting to dabble, so I can't wait to try my hand at some of the challenges. Your kits are awesome and colorful! Just picked up my first one today and I'm going to give it a whirl. Cross your fingers for me :)
