Welcome to all the newbies on this thread! And welcome to digital scrapping. I can't say I'm an experienced digital scrapper; more of an experienced digital designer, but I have done some digital LO's in addition to my paper scrapbooking. Plan on doing more; have developed everything for my own digital LO's and I would like the possibility of developing my own line/brand of digital scrap stuff. I have a MyPlace, lots of stuff to look at there and more to come! Hello to all!

I cannot believe this! I must have been asleep! This thread is posted in my "favorites," but I'VE NEVER SIGNED IN!!! Okay, I can fix that right now. Hi, I'm a 100% digi scrapper, due to the fact that I live in Ukraine where the only nice paper available is wallpaper, and you have to buy the whole roll. (There are no such things as "remnants" of cloth, either!) Take a look at my gallery to see my layouts. I use Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. I'm really just playing around with both, as my husband is actually the graphic designer in our family. Gallery

My friend introduced me to paper scrapbooking but the fear of ripping good paper and that once you glue your project it is final scared the jeepers out of me! I enjoy very much computer and digital photography and discovered the world of Digi Scrap in February 2006... Hooked since then! I work with PS7.

Hi,
I just found this forum! Good to meet you all. I have just started digi-scrapping recently and am taking classes weekly at the local school to learn how to use my PSE4, PS7 and CS. I loved the idea of fixing photos, but hadn't taken it as far as scrapping until recently. I have managed to do some nice layouts for a beginner I think, but am finding that my imagination only stretches so far...lol.

I will have to take a look at some of your ideas and play around with the 'bits and pieces' that I have d/l to work with. I think it is more a matter of not completely knowing how to incorporate all the ideas into each layout yet.

I look forward to going to each weekly class to learn more. And, now I have another place to get tips and ideas! When I figure out how to post my layouts here, I will get them up for your helpful suggestions.

I got into digi scrapping several months ago due to the fact that my scrap room is under construction and my stuff is everywhere its not supposed to be, I LOVE it! I find myself sitting down on here messing around with it every time I get a spare moment. Im using PSE4 just learning some of the tricks

Hello.

I would like to say "ditto" to Jeannie's comment, minus the QuicKutz , but add a whole lot of other paper envolvement as an artist; old fashioned photogragher of many years (darkroom, printing and all the smelling chemicals); Then I discovered the simple fun of rubberstamping 12 or so years ago and card making all in fun.

Finally I entered the digital age and went for the best... well I haven't found all these other programs better, they just keep interfering with my creativity and my results are so much less proffessional and slick looking. Not that scrapbooking is suppose to be like that. Or by the way I am refering to Photoshop any complete Pro version.

I have the other Scapbook programs and I always end up wishing I had just started from scratch in photoshop. My layouts are disappointing and nothing like the work I did that was layers and textures and all kinds of images... I don't know why the two are so different, for me anyway.

I was hoping these goofy programs like Scrapbook Factory and Ulead PhotoImpact XL,and several others I try would have the same effect that rubber stamping had for me years ago. I no longer had to paint masterpieces for every greeting card, etc. I learned to loosen up and still elevated the craft to an artsy level. But the results are always so much less than what I want to see...so I don't really like my results much and go back to paper and paint for awhile or just end up back at Photoshop. I have Illustrator also but don't need to use it much in the non-professional realm. I prefer to draw freehand anyway.

Wow I really got carried away. I just realized that if anyone goes and see the layouts in my gallery... Well by my standards they really are my worst work, but I don't have my best on the PC. Or it is certainly my Scrapbooking. So I am here for role call and to figure out where I belong.

I hope I can learn to enjoy it and not hate my results. Or at least tolerate them when I think someone with a real eye might be looking at them. Maybe you guys can where rose color glasses or better yet, just close your eyes when you visit my Gallery.

Thanks for letting my express myself... I better take a break now.

But I wonder if anyone else out there feels this way, has this frustration, or has made it past this ackward place, is there a transition?

Sincerely Exhausted and sorry if I exhausted any of you too... I had no idea I was going to write any of this...

Rose Etc -{@

You will need a good Design Program for Digital Scrapping. I use Paint Shop Pro and Photo Shop for mine. Once you learn the basics of each one it is justa matter of finding the right tubes and images you want ( or making your own ! ) to make your digital layouts all that you want them to be !

Hello

I have been digital scrapbooking since long before it was called digital scrapbooking . I use several different programs depending on how creative I feel.

Photoshop CS2
Jasc Paint Shop Pro
FotoFusion
Scrapbook Factory Deluxe

I love Scrapbook Factory Deluxe because it has so many layout ideas and elements built in. (Sometimes I am cannot think of a good layout, but I will recognise one when I see it!) I use FotoFusion for collage work. I use the Photoshop and Jasc programs for photo editing.

I do digital scrapbooking and paper scrapbooking. I have done a total of 3 digital layouts and I'm hooked. I use scrapbook factory deluxe 3. If it's a LO that I really like, then I do a paper lo basically the same.

Hi! I am Tiffani, an AVID digiscrapper. I have been officially digiscrapping since April of 2005 but have been using PSP since 2002 to make tags, stats, and webgraphics. I do paper scrap but don't have time or space to do it like I do with digiscrappingl. I am a married SAHM of 8 (#9 is due in August) and LOVE my Vivicam 8.1 MP I got for my anniversary present. I look forward to getting to know everyone!

The best thing is to choose a graphics program (my faves are Photoshop CS2 and Photoshop Elements) and play with them and learn, learn, learn. You will never outgrow Photoshop!

I'm pretty new too both paper and digi scrapping.
Well on my first album actually I used both, and I really like it.
Can you make the whole digi lo's on PhotoShop CS2 ?
I don't have this progi yet, but I really been thinking about it.
Any suggestion where to buy it cheaper ?
When you do digi, you make the whole lo on computer or you add to it ?

The page I have in my gallery is my first digital page. I use Photoshop 7.0, since that is what happened to be on my computer. The advantages to digital are how "clean" it is (nothing to put away when I'm finished) and the ability to change things until it's just right. I do like to "stuff" involved with traditional scrapping, though, too.

Greeting, Yulia - hope all your loved ones are safe!

For drberry: Congrats on the Mac! We've always been Mac users till I started digi-scrappin'. Then my generous husband got me a Windows and Scrapbook Factory Deluxe 3.0 so I could start out slowly. Photoshop is an expensive program, (some use Photoshop Elements, which is much less expensive), but, with practice, will give you all the artistic tools you need to make stunning layouts. While you're learning, you can import free digi-graphics from the many scrapbook sites online.
You'll need a photo-quality printer, preferably with separate ink cartridges. 12x12 is available (not cheap), but I do mine in letter size so I can use standard binders and page protectors .
Welcome aboard!

Hi everyone! I am new to this site!
I have been digital scrapping for almost 3 years and designing for a little over 2 years.
I have used PSP8 but now use PS7 and PSE3. My favorite digi 'tool' is the Wacom tablet.. can't tell you how much I love it
Another hobby I adore is photography. So much to learn but almost as fun as learning to scrap !

I am guilty of not printing every single layout but I do archive them and always say 'someday I will print these' lol at least they are finished. I never finished any paper layouts

Hello, I am a newbie here and I love to digi scrap. I have been tinkering in it with PS7 as well as PowerPoint for a while now and really enjoy it. Paper and embellishments around here are out of the question if I want to scrapbook because of my 4 cats. They tend to eat things they shouldn't. I look forward to every chance I get to scrap and carry a small notepad with me where ever I go so when an idea strikes I can jot it down. Hope I learn alot here because the pages I have seen so far are wonderful.

How is everyone in the scrapping world today? I have been paper scrapping for a couple of years and am still trying to get comfortable using all the cool tools and products. I got a digi program for Christmas called Scrapbook Factory Deluxe, but it looks like the hot program to have is Photo Shop. Can someone please explain to me the difference in all the PS programs. I would truely welcome any input. I mostly just scrap for my family if that makes a difference. Thanks!

Hi Theater Mom, I'm new here but you are right about PhotoShop. I mostly use PS7 (PhotoShop7) to do my scrap pages and it is a wonderful program. Its the best and most comprehensive photo manipulation and restoration program available on the market. You can do almost anything with it except animation which it's "sibbling" add on program "ImageReady" is useful for animation. If you are interested in PhotoShop7 just send me a private message...

I am Ilene, have done digital for almost a year. I use Photoshop Elements. If you want to see some of my digital work, I invite you to visit my China album which is entirely digital.

Link to my China album

There are digital los in my other albums too, but they are mingled with paper layouts, and it is hard to tell the difference. In general, those with the most current pictures are most likely to be digital los. You are welcome to look at the other albums as well, by going through the following link, and you can choose an album that looks interesting to you. Bet you can't tell the difference between my digital and paper los!

I wish I could design ecuts. I think I'd be good at it. Are there any instruction books on creating ecuts? Like what you are allowed to use and not allowed to use? Can you start with patterned paper s? I mean, I have to have a starting point, and the papers seem to be the most difficult to design.

digital is a smart choice for you. It is great for people who don't have access to sb stores. I recommend you look at the ecuts, and other sources of digital elements, which can really help you move into digital very fast. These elements are much cheaper than paper, and easy to distribute on the net.

I'll bet you use digital scrapbooking in your teaching. It could really make teaching fun!
Maybe your students would even like to do some of it. Kids are so digital now.

My daughter uses scrapbook factory deluxe, and I use Photoshop elements. Hers is very easy to use, and she is not very computer skilled. Mine is harder to use and I am very skilled. So there are merits in both, but the place where you may experience the greatest difficulty is in controlling the output of the files from the inexpensive products. They don't give you enough control, and make it hard to share the output, like on the web, or onto a disk that you can take to the copy center, etc. My stuff is easy to ditribute. She has lots of beautiful stuff in her computer that she can't put on the web or on a cd. Maybe it is also a function of her output devices, whch are not as good as mine.

To choose the best products, assess your hardware, time available, and skill. I prefer Photoshop elements because I make mine to share on the net. You may look at my China album to see some digital lo's. Hers are beautiful, but they are trapped in her id. You might want to talk to my daughter, and her username is "Happy Camper". As you can see, she has nothing in her gallery. If you want to show your work, the cheap packages may not be the best choice. Elements is not very expensive. It is about $100 I think, and very worth the price.

Check out photoshop elements. It cousts around $100 and is worth every penny. I absolutely love it and used it to create my digital layouts. Please look at my China gallery to see what you can do with it. maybe you can even make better layouts than I did with it. I've only done it for a year. Good luck. Choose wisely. Cheap is not always a bargain.

Merek: I think it is a great idea to post the new stuff on this forum, so the digital people get a chance to build up their resources.

I would like to ask a question about free stuff.
Do you have any programs to give elements to qualified charities or volunteer efforts? Please look at my blog about seriously ill newborns, and let me know if there is any way I can channel free resources from computer scrapbook.com to the nurses at NICU.

It is pretty brave of you to lead this digi scrap group when you are not a digital scrapper yourself. I saw that you have only done 1 digital layout.

Did you intend to find somebody else in this forum to take over the leadership? Are you intending to create groups in here with other leaders? I think I can lead a group, if you will tell me how to start up a group.

before you try to uplaid them to the web, do a save for web operation. there is no use in trying to upload the huge files. they go up so much better after they have been compressed (flattened to one layer). they also print better. all those layers are only useful during the design process. compress and then share.
good luck.

in my programs, there is a 'save for web' operation in the file menu, right under the save. try it. you'll share much easier.

I download all the things I like and organize them into a directory for easy access when I am digiscrapping. organization takes some effort, but it is worth it because then you can find things easily when you need them.

i had to figure this out, but knew that it was important. I have a lot of elelments, and if i did not have them organized, they's just be a pain. if you want to talk about organizing, contact me. i'll tell you how I do it. wish i could just show you my digital scrapbooking file structure and how i make it work for me.

i have used elements 2.0 for the last year and love it. if you are good at computer, you can get some awesome layouts with it. please look at my China album in my gallery to see the work I created in the last couple of months with it. i have only done digital for less than a year.

i encourage you to try pe2.0. You can get training cd's from Scrapper's guide, very good and not expensive.

Robin: Do it. Get myplace going. This is a great place for you to hang out during your adolescent years. Great people. Lots of Christians, a supportive learning atmosphere. You could not have picked a better place. Why don't you start a group for young scrappers?

One security measure though - change your userid. Don't include your last name or your location. You are young and pretty. Better to withhold some information. You can think of me as your online grandma. I have an 11 year old granddaughter.

Beth: I hope you find a way to scan those layouts. Remember scan-n-stitch from adobe. It costs about $40. You can get a free download of a trial and then upgrade to deluxe for $20. then you can scan in segments and stitch so easily.

I would love to see your layouts, so signal me when you get them into your gallery, ok?

And digital is so worth it. I absolutely love it. I think you could make the adjustment. Adobe Photoshop elements is my choice. It is so worth the price. Please look at my China album to see what I have done with it, and I have only done digital less tha a year. I'd like to know how you progress.

You need a scrapbooking program. Lots to choose from. Look at my other posts in this forum for advice.

The old pictures you inherited are a treasure, and digiscrapping can help you find the value that is hidden in them. Good luck. Just strike out. Spend time organizing if you want to get the maximum value out of the photos. Ask the people in the photos what they remember about this, and record their answers. Those will be your source for great journals. Journals make the layouts.

Look for Linda Sattgast on the web, at her company called "Scrapper's Guide". She is a great teacher, and I learned to use pe2.0 from her cds. I did only 5 lessons last summer, and look at my China album to see what I have done with it. I have other digital los too, but you may have difficulty figuring out which is digital and which is paper. All of "China" is digital and was done with pe 2.0.

Hi. I am a great grandmother who is teaching herself to digi scrap. I am using Corel PaintShop Pro X. It has been a long process understanding how to use masks, etc. But I love it. What I really love if not having paper, glue, scissors, etc. laying all around. What I would like is a new color printer where I could get nice prints. I am in the process of doing a 6x6 scrapbook and I learn as I go along. I can see the difference in my work from my first attempts to my latest.

I am a digital greeting card / scrapper. I am a graphic designer in staten island, NY. When I am not using traditional craft materials the computer helps me acheive a different look. This forum looks like a lot of fun. I am looking forward to some swaps and contests.

I started out with Microsoft Digital Image Pro. It was so quick and easy to learn. Then my daughter bought Adobe Photo Shop. It took me a while to figure it all out. Then I found Scrapbook Factory on sale and bought it to. It has lots of great stuff but not as much flexibility as the other two. My favorite so far has been Digital Image Pro. Very easy and will do most anything you need.

Hi there!! I'm pretty new to all of this scrapbooking stuff but I can already feel this new narcotic coarsing through my veins. :-)

I did my first Digi page tonight. It's in my gallery. My album that I'm working on is 8 1/2 x 11 so I can just go to Kinkos to print (I assume)

Anyway I have Microsoft Picture It 10. I might look into buying something else if I have to. I've been downloading elements from the freebie sections here and at www.digitalscrapbookingplace.com.

I enjoy both ways of scrapbooking but for some reason I feel more comfortable with digital. I guess it's because my two scrapping friends are "Goddesses of Scrapbooking" and can be pretty intimidating with their creativity and talent.

Anyway, Hi there!! *waves*

Hi everyone!
I just started getting into digi-scrapping (although I use Photoshop CS2 at work all day for other reasons) and I am enjoying it so much! I look forward to stepping into this section on sb.com! I know there are a lot of talented digi-artists out here, and I look forward to meeting others and getting inspiration and tips!

Hi everyone!

I do both traditionald and digital scrapping. I've been creating my own kits (not yet available to the public but soon they will be!). I have not done many digital layouts and only have one posted in my gallery (the Pride and Prejudice LO).

Looking forward to being part of the digital community here!

If you mean the sick greenish cast you see in photographs shot underneath fluorescent light, then in your color balance (not sure what photo-editing software you have--I used photoshop exclusively) add magenta, playing around with the amounts until you get the photo looking more neutral.

If that's not what you meant, then I'm sorry. good luck.

I've been paper scrapbooking for over a year but just learned how to scrapbook digitally. It really is fun, but will never replace going to crops, being with the girls, sharing ideas. I want to buy Adobe Photoshop CS2, but opted for a less expensive scrapbooking program by by Broderbund ~ " Creating Keepsakes Scrapbook Designer Platinum" ~ $35.00. I really like it.
I still want to buy Adobe Photoshop CS2. I can get a teachers' discount at a local store ~ $299.00. Not bad compared to the first price I saw it for ~ $719.00 ~ at a local office supply store.

You could also get Photoshop Elements 3 or 4. It's a bit simpler than what you want but you can do a lot of things and it's less than $100.

I'm new to sb.com as of today - - i've have 3 LOs in paper, and 3 digi LOs that I did today. Would love some ideas and critiques!


I already think I might change my dog one by moving the title to the middle, and making room for and "&" in Reiss and Blake, and doing a better job making "that's my Bella Girl" stand out more. But then again I think I'm my harshest critic!

I use PS CS2, and I've been getting very involved with Adobe Products during the past 3 or 4 years; with two years of "actual teaching" I guess you could say. Anyone can learn tools though - - it's all about what's in YOU!

I'm starting college this year and majoring in Graphic Design (eXciTeD ExcITEd EXCITEDDD!) and I'm really excited about that. I've recently become addicted to sb.com and I was wondering if anyone knows of therapy groups for people like us

Ask me anything!

Hi there. I do more digital than standard. I use
HP Creative Scrapbook Assistant. I actually came across the software when checking out the HP Activity Center.

I like the software because I can make my own shapes, phrases and layouts. I also use mostly my own backgrounds and frames.

Hi everyone (and hi Kathy ) I am new to digi-scrapping - about 2 weeks now - and massively addicted. I have never paper-scrapped - I'm just too spazzy for that but I love to use PSP to make layouts.
