Digital Scrapping

November 9, 2008

I have always wanted to try digital scrapbooking.  I got a nice new Canon Pixma printer on Saturday (early birthday present) and decided to play.  It makes really good photo prints, but I wonder how expensive.  I mean buying the photo paper ended up being 20 cents for per 4X6 not to mention the cost of the ink.  So unless I really need a photo for something I think I’ll stick with Snapfish and Shutterfly.  Anyway… I have had Photoshop Elements for awhile, but not really done anything with it.  I found a cool website with digital papers and elements and downloaded one of their free sample kits at www.shabbyprincess.com.  Way cute!  To make a long story short this is what I came up with.  I should have typed in the journal box but I’ll have to add that by hand this time.

I am looking forward to playing some more.  I don’t know that I’d ever go total digital ’cause it’s kinda flat and I feel like I need some dimension and texture.  I may do pages that are a little of both. 

I am taking a free on-line class this week called Stories In Hand by Jessica Sprague at www.jessicasprague.com.  I’ll probably post some of the stuff we do.  We are creating an 6X6 album as part of the project.  If you’re interested you can join the class until Monday at midnight.

Don’t ya just love free stuff!
