Jill Davis, Scrapbook.com Founder had the vision of a world-renowned website for scrapbookers, artists and crafters when the Internet was first emerging in public popularity. It was her love of family, friends and her passion for preserving memories that brought her dream to a reality. She loves teaching others how to capture LIFE in layouts, journaling and photographs. Through her own life experiences and decades of scrapbooking she has seen first-hand how layouts, photos and the written word enrich, support, and connect people in unexpected and fulfilling ways. Scrapbooks are gifts that keep on giving. They help us see how good, precious and beautiful life is, and can be. Through layouts we can show our children the obstacles of life, how to get through them, become stronger and become a better human being. She knows scrapbooks contain the energy only found in handmade and handcrafted treasures; the DNA of love. In our fast-paced, quick-fix, gotta-have-it-now world, scrapbooks can recharge us when energy runs low and we need to reconnect with the important people, places and things of our lives. Jill knew Scrapbook.com could become a place where creative people could gather, learn, share, make new friends, and grow as an artist. And it has. If she were with you in a real classroom setting she would be pleased to be there and for sure say, “Thank you for joining me on this amazing journey we’re having; I am so happy you’re here and that we can have this time together.”
