Getting a Little More Scrapbooking Done



Yes, this has been on Facebook. It's a page inspired by Debbie Hodge's class at Get It Scrapped called "Scrapbook Coach" http://classroom.debbiehodge.com/. I like learning how folks develop their pages. I always add my own twist, kinda like using a sketch. I should credit the products I used here. The papers, blue letters, and stickers and twine are from Lawn Fawn. The yellow letters My Little Shoebox and the gems from TPC Studio. Buttons are stash. The adhesives are all from Scrapbook Adhesive 3L used the EZ Runner for most of the project, the foam dots on the arrow sticker and parts of the banners and and Dodz for the buttons.

I think templates in digi scrapbooking are basically the same thing. 
I'm trying to learn photoshop and digi scrapping. Here's a recent example from a class at Jessica Sprague http://www.jessicasprague.com/.


Do you sense a recent theme? LOL! Having little grandchildren is the best inspiration. I've got to visit the young ladies on the coast. They make delightful pages, too. Not that the "old fart" grandkids don't get pages made about them, their photos just tend to be more self-conscious, as so many of ours are, as we get older.

Now, I do firmly believe that scrapping one's own stories is important. In fact, in my attempt to learn more about Adobe Photoshop I'm taking Cathy Zielske's "Clean & Simple" class at BPShttp://www.bigpictureclasses.com/clean-simple.php . I'll try to post some of those pages, as I complete them.

Hope everyone is having a great spring. What plans do my fellow scrappers have for National Scrapbook Day?

Beautiful layouts!

I'm spending NSD at home participating in online crops. I always challenge myself to finish every challenge at sb.com and Fiskateers. It's so much fun!
