Yay! Now that there's a gallery and I know Crafty_One has actually had a chance to look at her pages I can post pics of them. Here are the two layouts I created for her. We both agreed to do digital scrapbook layouts.


This first layout is for a picture of her daughter dressed as a pirate. She wanted shades of pink, black and white and I found the PERFECT page kit right off the bat.
Credits: I used the Pirate Princess page kit  by Britt-ish Designs; The journal block & tag are adapted from Rene Bross's Scrap Heap #4 collection; the stitches are from Lisa Carter's Keep Em In Stitches #1; page title created using April Anderton's sparkle glitter sheet.


The next layout was created to showcase pics of Crafty_One and her baby niece. I kept the design fairly simple as she said the pics are busy and gave it a soft color scheme.
Credits: background paper (recolored), mat, stitching & photo frames came from Julie Bullock's Frivolous page kit; the stitched flowers are from Lauren Bavin's Lazy Daisy page kit; Handcrafted Happiness Alpha by Bethy Nixon; and I er can't remember which of the bajillion kits I own that the tag came from.

These were a lot of fun to work on. Thanks for letting me scrap for you Crafty_One. I hope the pages work well for your pics & journaling!

Those are too cute! How does digital scrapbooking work? Do you just create the pages and add pictures and leave it on the computer or do you print it off? I've seen the software at Hobby Lobby but am unfamiliar with how it works. Smiley

Received my digi scrapbook layouts from crafty_one today! Eeee! So cute. Behold the adorableness:


A baby boy layout perfect for scrapping all about my son when he's born in September. I can't wait to fill this one in. I love the layout and the elements chosen. The framing of the main page is really nice.


A layout for pics of my daughter's dance recital. This was a tricky layout because unlike most dance recitals - there was no pink involved, just black and yellow! Not your traditional recital colors. Crafty_one did a great job playing into that color scheme with this layout and I love the photo and journaling block shapes!

Thank you so much for the two gorgeous layouts crafty_one and for agreeing to do a digi scrap swap with me. Yay!

You can leave the pics on the computer only, post them to the web in a gallery to share with others or print them and put them in a book. I've done all three. I've printed individual layouts to put in a regular 8x8 scrapbook and I've also had an 8x8 photobook filled with my layouts printed from Shutterfly. I prefer the photobooks of the two methods and that's what I intend to do with most of my layouts. On the other hand - printing individual pages means you can easily move the pages between books and re-organize them however you want. You can get a printer that does photo-quality printing and uses archival inks, or use an online service to have your pages printed. I think you can get them printed for around $1-$1.50 a page at a bunch of different places.

Hope that info helps! Digi scrapping is very, very addictive and fun.

Here are my two lovely pages from april again. They are fabulous! The black and white one is all glittery. The Disney one matches my Disney book perfectly! Had a great time and thanks April!
(Sorry about the angle...I couldn't get a good one from straight on without glare.)

The black and white one for best friends.



The red and black Disney page.

These are so lovely! I'd love to join the next round, especially if digital scrapbooking is an option.

I'm a paper scrapbooker, but i've just bought Photoshop Elements 8 to have a go and digital. It's so hard!! I can't do anything on it. What do you guys use for your digital layouts?

I really love the dance recital one. The layout is so different but pretty!

I use Photoshop CS. There are lots of kits that can help you get started and lots and lots of free kits too so you don't need to invest a lot in new kits to try digital scrapbooking. Here's a good intro to digi scrapping:

And here's a tutorial on how to create your first page:

You can get a bunch of free kits and elements if you signup for the gallery here (they won't spam you):

Hope this helps and good luck!

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:
http://www.digitalscrapbookplace.com/gallery/gimme-more-crops-with-lauren/p224611-carousel-ride.html

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!
