I notice that not many on this board have posted digital layouts.  I just wanted to share with you a sample of the "craft"  that i love to do.
I have never tried paperscrapbooking and now that i tried digital i dont think that i will ever change Smiley  These layouts are all made from digital files (that i create and sell at my website) and put together using photoshop. But, their are many options of what program that can be used.   If anyone would like more specifics or has questions i can answer them Smiley

INCREDIBLE! do you print them and put them into a binder type thing? I bet they would look great framed in your kids bedroom or in the family room.  You could make a calendar and give it out for the holidays! you really have an amazing talent with the computer.

Thanks ladies!

These layouts are created at 12x12 inches.  I print them out 8x8 inches and put in frames or in "scrapbooks"  the kind that you would use for paper scrapbooking with the plastic sleaves.

i have a whole gallery full of my work at my website if you would like to see more Smiley   

The items used in these layouts are all items that i made and sell in digital kits for anyone to use Smiley

It is not very hard to achieve this look.. their are THOUSANDS of "digi scrappers"  you can find lots of tutorials and information at scrapbook-elements.com or scrapbook-bytes.com  these 2 sites are both dedicated to this craft Smiley

more questions, just ask!!
I have never had more fun than i am having now that i found scrapbooking Smiley  I love knowing that my boys will have these pages to treasure and show their children.

Oh my goodness. I love your pages. I do scrapbooking myself and have heard of digital scrapbooking, but never thought it would or could turn out like yours!  I am thinking about doing scrapbooking all digitally now.  How do you get started?  On average, how long would you say a page like one of those posted takes you?  THanks so much for the inspiration

Hi!  thankyou for the compliment Smiley

You should see all the incredible computer generatied layouts people post at www.scrapbook-elemenets.com in their gallery and also www.scrapbook-bytes.com  wonderful stuff!  i would start by looknig around the galleries there and then taking some of the tutorials on the sites.
#1 you need software. photoshop elements is the beginners best choice Smiley IMO  you can also use PSP, DIP, photo impact
#2 surf galleries to see the things that can be accomplished
#3 find some free downloads to try.  I have a few on my site.
#4 read some of the tutorials
Hope this helps!!!
