Digital Scrapbooking

As my long term readers will know I’ve been wanting to try digital scrapbooking for a few years. Finally I saw a real opportunity with Renee Pearson’s Just the Basics class. Class started last week. I immediately discovered we had Photoshop Elements 5 and I needed 6,7 or 8 for class. Kevin finally got me version 6 so today I was able to complete week 1 (just in time for week 2 to arrive). Having Renee talk it through step by step is wonderful and just what I needed. I watched the videos, then listened to them while I followed on PSE (switching back and forth as need). The result 2 digital layouts that I am rather proud of, even if it’s so totally not my normal style. The theme was robots but luckily was neutral enough I was able to find photos to go with it.

Who knows in a few weeks I might even be able to complete the few online classes I started that were largely digital!

    Good job!! They look great, Libby πŸ™‚

    I think the hardest part of digital scrapping is keeping your downloaded kits and embellishments organised so you can easily give credit for the papers and bits you use πŸ™‚

    I love scrap booking. I’ve just done a post about how I love organising and filing things away and I have all my crafting items and scrap booking items filed away. I’ve never thought of digital scrap booking πŸ™‚

    Fabulous!!! Congratulations on your pages and getting started. It was one of my 2010 goals to learn digi scrapbooking and I made a start in January. I’m really enjoying it! I haven’t take any classes but I’m learning as I go and I love the pages I’ve done πŸ™‚ I especially like how quick it is to clean up afterwards πŸ˜‰
