About Marina 2

  1 All About Me-

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 teenage kids: Emilia (16) and Andrés (15).

I’m an animal lover! 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 23 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 colorful, and I love designing theme park inspired kits. 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 love this creative journey and I’m really honored to be a small part of the legacy that you will be leaving behind in your scrapbooks.

    Hi Marina,
    I am trying to sign up for your newsletter but the page seems to be hanging. Do you have an email address so I can send you my details and perhaps you can sign me up? I have tried over a week and I just can’t get past the sign on form.
