I saw it this morning...it's a gorgeous kit but I don't much care for it really. Just not my kind of colors and the papers didn't do it for me at all. But I did like the Splatz by Vicki Stegall...might have to get those!!

Morning! What software are you guys using?

I have Photoshop Elements 5. My laptop is 4 or 5 years old, I'm planning on getting a new one next year, maybe in summer, and I'll upgrade my PSE then.

I'm almost enabled enough to do some digi shopping myself

LOL, Jill, you were pretty successful! I spent $4.25... nowhere near that free game kit!

Kara, I use Photoshop Elements 6. I bought a desktop computer last year, knowing I'd need the memory and high performance for it! Digi scrapping is high maintanence, lol.

I would like to mention my favorite freebie site: Gunhild & Svenning Actually, was it you, Kate, who first introduced me to it months ago? Tons of fabulous freebies. At the top, click on the word "here" to see the Friday Freebie page, then you'll see links to pages 1 - 6 to view older pages. Love her stuff!!

Jill, yes you should sign up for the Insider emails if you want the extra discounts!!

Kara, I'm using Elements 5. I'm no computer guru, I learned most of what I know from Kate helping me and from trial and error plus a couple of tutorials.

Can't stay long, I'm working !!

Lori - I remember that you were dabbling in making your own digi stuff...glad to know that you are still at it! I was making freebies for a while but felt so unappreciated (no...really...just didn't have the time). I'll make something here and again if I need it and don't have it...and would like to begin making more stuff again to give away.

Kara - I print everything...but I usually wait for the email I get when there is a sale (scrapbooksplease.com I think??) Last time I had prints made it was over 150 LO's. I don't recommend waiting that long...takes a LONG time to upload Oh..and...I also use PSE5. DH (don't ask me why) bought a mac a few weeks ago that has CS3 on it thinking I would love it...when actually I don't want to touch it w/a 10 foot pole! I love PSE, does everything I want it to do, why change?

Jill got her shop on!! Great stuff girl!

Cathy - glad you joined us, and you are right, the digi side is missing pizzazz!!

Hi Lauri! (seems weird spelling your name right...LOL) Hi C!! (Hi-C is the name of a kool-aid type drink here in the states...LOL)

Lauri, I'd forgotten about Gunhild and whoever it is I'll have to hop over and see what she's done lately.

So has anyone got any new LOs to share?

Kate, how about a challenge to get us all started?

Dinner time - back later.

I actually worked on a digi layout today but it's not quite ready and it's at work - this is a BIG accomplishment seeing as I haven't really done any since MAY!!!!

So, to get us started, why don't we post one of our fave layouts here? That way, people can see what we scrap like!

I love this one that I did, inspired by one of my scrapbook friends:
A Rewarding Hobby By Peenut_23

I tend to use a lot of negative space on my digi layouts - something I cannot seem to do with paper!

So let's see your favourite!

Hard to decide but....


Delight in life

I think this typifies my style fairly well, I like white space a lot of the time, my favourite colours are blues and greens and I like the clean and simple lines

Jill, that LO is totally fantastic!!


This LO is pretty representative of how I scrap, although it's not digital. Lots of images, not much embellishment except for enlargements of certain elements from my photos or scans of ephemera, cool titles, and some journaling. I was really pleased with my title, which I used Photoshop to make: I took a free download font, put each letter in its own layer and moved them around until they were 'welded', then printed it out, used removable adhesive on a real road map and cut it out with an xacto knife. I also photoshopped the picture in the bottom left - the original pic is just to the right of it, I got rid of the background, enahnced the foliage a bit with the clone tool, and textured the pillar the dragon is on. We have a bigger pic of it hanging in our bathroom

And here's the paper I made for my Trader Vic's LO, which is really representative of how I've been using Photoshop lately: patterns, brushes, layers, photos, and this one has some crops from the actual Trader Vic's drinks menu which is on their website. I finished this LO with photos and other paper, but I haven't photographed it yet.

Lovely pages, girls!

Here is the most recent one I made. I think it sums up my style pretty well: clean and simple, with a lot of white space and very few elements.



Thanks for looking.
