My Story

Hello. My name is Karen (aka karooch), I live in Australia and I’m a Scrappin’ Tragic! I love reading about, writing about and actually doing Scrapbooking, both traditional and digital. My aim is to make Scraps of Mind a great resource for Scrappers everywhere; providing

  • Scrapbooking Tips and Techniques,
  • Scrapbook related articles,
  • Product and Website Reviews, and
  • Links to great Freebies and other useful Scrapbooking places,
  • in an easy to read magazine style format.

As well as helping those who blog to develop and improve their blogs without needing to delve into the heavy duty techie stuff. I like to think that Scraps of Mind is


A feast of Scrapbooking information and tutorials for both the Digital Scrapbooker and the Traditional Paper Scrapbooker. Seasoned with Antiques & Collectibles, Music inspired, and Blog Presentation articles to add some extra spice. All served up with a light hearted and fun style.

I am constantly interested in improving this site so any feedback or suggestions from readers is warmly welcomed and encouraged. If you are a new reader you might like to check out my Articles Page which lists all the key articles on this site for easy reference.

And if you really want to know all the ‘down and dirty’ about Karooch then check out My ScrapBlogging Journey.

If you’ve never tried digital scrapbooking you might be interested in my latest project. I’ve put together a course called Step by Step Digital Scrapbook that’s designed specifically to help beginners get started in digital scrapbooking.

If you’ve never tried digital scrapbooking you really don’t know what you’re missing. So why not click over and check it out. But be warned…digital scrapbooking is seriously addictive.

If you haven’t discovered RSS yet I recommend you give it a go. It
makes keeping up to date with blog websites very easy. I wrote a
short and simple “Beginners Guide To RSS” which you can find here.

Hope you enjoy Scraps of Mind
