Hi! I’m Julie!
I was born in Bronx NY, and moved to Jersey when I was 25. Love it here. I’m just 35 minutes away from NYC, so still get to enjoy all that the city offers. My only daughter moved to California when she graduated college in 2014. She is Director of Music for Television for a large movie company – her college education sure paid off!
My biggest hobby other than digital scrapbooking, is my singing bass with my Sweet Adeline Chorus, Harmony Celebration Chorus (4-part Acappella). That just brings me a massive amount of joy. I also sing with 2 different quartets and both of them are a bit of distance away, so I get some travel time in that way. So when I’m not scrapping, I’m singing, singing – and more singing!!!!
I discovered digital scrapbooking in 2005 – I was just surfing the web and came across it. Decided to give it a try and taught myself Photoshop. Sold all my paper stuff within 3 months of digital scrapping!
I’ve been on Vicki’s team since 2015. I was on a lot of teams at one point, but since losing my eyesight, I do not scrap as much, so now I’m only on Vicki’s and one other, which I’ve been a member since 2007.
- Software: Photoshop CC – Love just pretty much everything about this program. What can’t it do??
- Style: So not traditional – a bit artistic but still simple. I love using masks and leaving white space so that the photos are clearly the focus of the page.
- Page Subjects: Used to be my daughter, but now it’s pretty much anyone who I can get a photo of. Sometimes if I have a kit I need to work on, I use a free photo site if I do not have any photo’s that fit the kit.
