I've always adored the Somerset crafting Magazines ... so it was an absolute delight to get published again recently in the Spring 2011 edition of 'Somerset Memories'.

I'm Launched on!

I am very excited to announce that you can now purchase my digital scrapbook creations and photo editing tools on! Check out my new store, selling under the brand name of 'Jodie Lee' HERE.

Many of you will have heard of Jessica Sprague. This very talented lady is somewhat of a legend in the digital and hybrid scrapbooking arena!

As a well known contributing editor to the Creating Keepsakes Magazine, her passion is helping people tell the stories of their life with paper and pixels.  Her tutorials on Photoshop are absolutely awesome. I've been sampling a few myself lately, and even though I've been using Photoshop for 20 years, I'm still learning some fantastic tips and tricks from Jessica!
A few years back, Jessica featured some of my Vintage Boho Frames from in her 'Computer Tricks for  Scrapbooking 3' Magazine.  

So I am more than excited to be now selling my digital products on and I look forward to bringing you a ton of awesome new creations!
