About Me

I delved into the world of computer graphics about 12 years ago, and have been hooked ever since. I've been creating tags for about 11 years, writing tutorials for 5 and creating scrap kits for 3. In addition to designing scrap kits, I also participate in Renaissance Faires, and perform in various venues featuring Middle- Eastern dance.

I am always happy when people try my tutorials and use my templates and other goodies. Feel free to use the goodies in other tutorials, just tell them where you got it and provide link to my blog. Please be respectful. Do not claim them as your own or alter the credits. Do not use the tags made from my tutorials for monetary gain or to promote hate and violence. Anything else you'd like to do with the tags created from the tuts. . .have fun! If you are a group owner and would like to text link to my tutorials for challenges, please feel free to do so. If you have any questions you can email me at ginasgemsscraps@hotmail.com. Have fun!
