Why Didn`t Anyone Tell Me?

Posted on September 22, 2008 - Filed Under Fun, Mom Stuff |

I used to work with Creative Memories, which is rather like the Avon of scrapbooking. I would teach classes on how to scrap and helped people put together cute photo albums. It was tons of fun and I loved it, but never earned that much money. I did, however get major discounts on albums and supplies, so right before I quit, I ordered tons of things that I could use in the future.

Unfortunately, all those scrapping supplies stayed in Canada. And now I have two little boys who really deserve to be in an album! So when I got a job writing about digital scrapbooking for a blog, I started to do some research and planned to throw together a couple of pages for examples.

I totally underestimated how fun it would be! It`s really almost like paper scrapping! :D I love it. And I`m totally addicted. The best part? I realized that all those kits you get are just done up in Photoshop. Which I happen to be pretty darn familiar with. Sooooo . . . I`m thinking of just doing up some little kits of my own to sell. Just for fun and since I can add a link into my blog posts on this paid job. ;)

Here`s my first page. It needs a little something on the right, there, but still, it was just for fun and I played with it for ages. The original color on everything was blue, but that didn`t go with my pictures, so I changed it to green. :) Gotta love Photoshop!

    Very nice! I’ve never tried digital scrapbooking. I should though, since Grayson has 4 scrapbooks and Grant doesn’t even have one!

    Wow, your page looks great. My friend Hallie does digital scrapbooking. I haven’t done anything yet, just the few regular scrapbooks for adoptions and such.

    Check out this site…designerdigitals.com- they offer some freebies with each email-once you join their mailing list. Then discounts on their products.

    I haven’t a clue, but maybe it will be a help to you?

    They also have a blhttp://blog.designerdigitals.com/og
