In today’s hustle and bustle world, we all wear many hats. Robin Sampson, of DigiScrap Delights, is no stranger to this concept. As a mother of 11 kids, grandmother, homeschooler, author and digital designer, her hat collection is as impressive as they come!

With such a large family, Robin wanted to scrapbook, but had little space in which to store and use the supplies that are necessary for making paper scrapbooks. In 2006, she discovered digital scrapbooking and soon she was creating page after page for her grandchildren. She also began creating cards and experimenting other digital crafts.

It was not long before Robin started designing her own digital kits to meet the needs of her digital scrapbooking projects. DigiScrap Delights was born. With a flair for color and pattern, most of Robin’s kits, papers and elements fit mostly into the “cottage chic” or “shabby chic” genre, but her store offers a variety of digi supplies to fit any style. Robin recently became interested in the “Project Life” scrapbooking system, so you can find a number of “Project Life” appropriate products in the DigiScrap Delights store, with more to come soon.

Although Robin began DigiScrap Delights as an Etsy store, which is still her main location, she also began selling her products this past month at ScrapFlower.com. You can also find Robin on her blog, which she loves to update frequently and you can often find many lovely freebies there. Robin is also available on several social media outlets, including FacebookPinterest and Twitter!

Be sure to visit DigiScrap Delights and take advantage of their current sales and specials. We suggest the Vintage Rose kits, which were a favorite of ours. And while you are out there, keep an eye out for Robin. You can not miss her — she is the one with all the hats!

The Scrap n’ Art designers created quite a fabulous selection of inspiring projects using DigiScrap Delights products. Scroll through our creations below, which are complete with direct links to theDigiScrap Delights products we used.
