Scrapbooking is a passion, and a way of living. It’s not only about creating beautiful pages but also about keeping memories alive for ages. And digital scrapbooking is the easiest and the most environmental way of making scrapbook. You don’t have to afraid of making mistakes, you don’t waste paper, no glue on hand, unlimited design possibilities and unlimited design supplies.
I am Elif, the designer behind Şahin Designs. The simplicity of digital scrapooking and my passion for designing made me start a professional career in digital scrapbook industry. I love helping memory keepers to document their life with high quality scrapbook products. I think scrapbookers should create their art easily, with joy and without overthinking. Therefore, when I start a design project brainstorming the theme, finding matching colors and considering print quality is my number one priority. Creating tools to make beautiful albums is also my passion. For this reason besides designing digital scrapbook kits I also make layout templates and album pages to help memory keepers in their design process.
I dedicated myself to turn Şahin Designs into a meeting place for digital and hybrid scrapbookers, create them high quality supplies, provide information and inspiration for their art and at the same time I try my best to do all of these at a reasonable price. I think crafting and having a hobby shouldn’t cost a lot of money. For that reason I started the Butterfly Nest memberships in 2015, a library for memory keepers and creatives. I am very proud that now the Nest serves scrapbookers from all over the world without depriving their budget.
