  • Hello everyone! Thank you for visiting! 

    Since you’re here, I’d like to tell you some facts about me so you can get to know me better:

    My name is Marina and I’m the creative brain behind Magical Scraps Galore. 

    I live in Argentina with my wonderful husband Peter and our two amazing kids: Emilia (13) and Andrés (12).

    I’m an animal lover! I currently I have two cats: Calla and Ron.

    I’m addicted to my computer and my DSLR camera. I take my camera everywhere and I can’t seem to have enough pictures of my kids! Good excuse to keep on scrapping! 

I love traveling. I love our family trips to Disney World every other year.

I’m a runner and I love to work out.

I love dark chocolate, red wine, and my daily dose of grunge music.

I am an English/Spanish translator and have been working with an American corporation for 20 years. I love designing because it takes me away from the corporate world and it helps me keep my creative juices flowing. 

I first began traditional scrapbooking back in the 1990’s, until I discovered digital scrapbooking in 2004 and I got hooked. I started designing in 2011. My style is traditional and classic, a bit whimsical with some vintage stuff mixed here and there. And I’m fascinated by colors (though I tend to always dress in black, go figure!). I find my inspiration everywhere: my kids, a photograph, a color swatch … I have to admit that I spend too much time on Pinterest too!

 I am loving this creative journey and I’m really honored to have the privilege of helping others preserve their special memories and document their life stories.
