Here are the two lovely pages I got from Angelofmusic!

Perfect colors for my college! Culver-Stockton College in Missouri (first co-ed college established west of the Mississippi River Smiley )

And the other is a page for me to put goofy, silly pictures of my son...

Thanks so much for my awesome pages! I really appreciate it and I enjoyed this swap~!

I love the colours on the college layout, it looks really effective and they just seem to pop from the dark background. And how did you cut the puzzle pieces for the second layout? Was it cut out using the Cricut and if so what cartridge?

beckashell: I'll be starting another scrapbook swap in about 2 weeks and digi scrappers are most welcome to join in on the fun also.

Thanks for providing the links on digi scrapbooking tapestrymlp, I'm going to check out those links also as I still consider myself a beginner so any extra info is always appreciated!  Grin

The puzzle pieces are Cricut. I believe I used the Locker Talk cartridge. Same cartridge the college pieces came from.

When you feel like you've mastered basic digi scrapping, you're ready for the really fun stuff - especially if you use Photoshop Elements or CS. Actions.

What are actions? They're like mini-programs that automatically run and do incredible things. What exactly? Welllllll if you're like me and you adore the look of real paper layouts and yet crave the flexibility and ability to change something a million times that digi scrapping offers - actions can help give you the look of a paper scrapbook page.

Here's an example of one of my layouts:

If you look at it you'll notice that the photo's edges appear to have been sanded away. That was done with an action. See the little circle paper accent below the picture? Note the torn edges and the way it has been inked? That was an action as well. All it took was the click of a button. So easy, and such a great way to add a little something extra and more depth to your pages.

The very, very best place I've found for actions is http://www.atomiccupcake.com. You can buy a set of them or individual actions and she has tons and tons and tons to choose from. The ones I use ALL the time are:
Small torn edges - http://atomiccupcake.com/photoshopaction.php?id=000307
Inked edges - http://atomiccupcake.com/photoshopaction.php?id=000312
Sanded edge - http://atomiccupcake.com/photoshopaction.php?id=000355
Torn & inked - http://atomiccupcake.com/photoshopaction.php?id=000349
Chalk Edge - http://atomiccupcake.com/photoshopaction.php?id=000385

There's a 30% off sale at Atomic Cupcake until July 16th right now. The actions may seem pricey but if you use them frequently (as I do) they are not a bad bargain and they save a lot of time.

Hope this helps and good luck with your digi layouts!
