Welcome to ScrapRoom.
I’ve been recording the memories and stories of my family for almost two decades, ever since the birth of my first child. What started as my daughter’s baby book has grown into more than 100 albums featuring our family and our stories. My hobby has evolved from a few pair of scissors and photographs into a whole new way to look at my world and my family.
With the onset of digital photography and camera phones, in just a few years, I had amassed and stored on my hard drive more than 30,000 photos. My stories were getting lost in the sheer volume of photos I was taking. I finally reached a point where I almost gave up my beloved hobby. Sound familiar?
I have taken many classes with industry leaders and met scrapbookers from all over the world, and almost all of them agree that what makes them crazy is the near impossibility of sorting, finding and using their favorite photos. Many had tried other photo software programs, only to become even more frustrated with the learning curve and expense.
After trying many options and finding nothing that met all my needs, I complained to my husband that someone needed to design a program specifically for the average photo enthusiast. That someone turned out to be me. I now have two scraprooms – the one in my house and the one on my computer. My creativity is back and I am loving and sharing my photos again.
I consider photo organization my mission. Storytelling with photos is not just a hobby. It’s a lifestyle. A way to express ourselves. A way to live with more purpose. And now, with my brand new interest in genealogy and family history, I've added our newest product - Gather Software. It has a new look and some updated features specifically for genealogists and family story tellers.
You can use ScrapRoom or Gather on a PC or a Mac, whether you intend to create a digital photo book, a graduation announcement, or simply share your photos and stories. Either way, I believe it will bring the joy of storytelling back into your life.
Please join me and give Gather or ScrapRoom Software a try. Let me know what you think.
Blayne and her husband, Bryan, have owned a professional studio for more than 20 years, where they specialize in combining photography and art into custom pieces for their clients’ homes. Their personal approach to their business has lead them to win national awards, speak at conventions, and continually evolve as artists. They see photography as so much more than a hobby. It’s their life.
