Hello, Bonjour, Hi, G’day, Guten tag, Hej, Hola, Bok, Ciao, Merhaba…

Whatever language is your native tongue, welcome to the wonderful world of digital scrapbooking.

I am Diane, known in the scrapping world as ADB Designs, and I am a wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. I began paper scrapping as a child. My father, whom I adored, was a scrapbook keeper and I learned by example. I also grew up with an interest in genealogy, fueled by my father as well.

My husband is a professional photographer (retired now) and together we make a terrific creative team. He often photographs unique and special things for me that I want to include in my kits. I lean towards vintage and artistic realistic styles but every once in a while I leap out of my box and create in a new and totally different way. It helps to keep me fresh and it is a challenge I love.

I live on 5 acres in a small town in the middle of the USA. About a year ago, my husband and I became empty nesters for the first time in our marriage, unless you count our two English setters, Gus & Betty. It has been an adjustment, but scrapping helps.>

I design digital scrapbooking products, both for personal use and commercial use. It is a creative outlet that I love, love, love.  My favorite colors are purple and orange, I like the autumn season best and I love to read.

In 1803 the United States was a new country with radical new ideas that were transforming the rest of the world as well as its new citizens. The new nation, however, was only a small portion of the North American land mass and its population was starting to swell. There was a strong desire for new land to cultivate.

Federalists and Republicans were at odds about fundamental governing issues as well as about the feasibility of purchasing new land. Napoleon offered the new United States the land called Louisiana, in return for 50 million francs (15 million US); President Thomas Jefferson and then secretary of state James Madison, were able to convince congress to ratify the deal and westward expansion began in earnest.

With A New Nation Expands Collection by ADB Designs you’ll be able to scrap all kinds of pictures during all times of the year, from the old to the new. Save 30% on the kit and different packs or save even bigger and grab the whole collection and have fun scrapping.
