Digital Scrapbook Layouts

Do you enjoy making digital layouts to house your photos and elements from special memories?   I do. I get the same satisfaction of developing something unique and personal to have for future viewing with digital scrapbooking as I do with hybrid creations.  Also, with digital scrapbooking, you can print out your designs without the mess to clean up. The only clutter you may encounter are the multiple photos and graphics you want to add to your page.

That can all depend on how you are going to set up your layout.  Are you going to use a template, or will you start with a brand-new document to make your scrapbook layout?

If you create your layout with a template, it is easy to simply change the colors to match a theme you are using.  Add a few photos, a title and some graphics and your layout is ready in minutes. 

To make one from scratch, simply set your background, add some shapes, photos, sentiments, and graphics and you are on your way to a beautiful piece of work.

You can add graphics from various sites.  Some offer freebies. I accessed some of the images in the photos from Pixel Scrapper where I am a Level 3 Commons Designer.  There are ways of to get free images, quality control advice, ideas and more from that site. 

You can also go on Etsy to find many beautiful images, papers, templates and more for your digital scrapbook layouts. You can use what you already have.

Simply access your tools from your software, including brushes, shapes, patterns, styles, and more, and you can develop a wonderful scrap-booking masterpiece! 

I hope this post helps!  Happy crafting!

I am a full time working wife and mother of three sons. I love all manner of crafting; From digital scrap-booking to tangible mixed media projects. I love to learn from other people and get exposed to the huge world of art. Creativity is in my blood. I have always sketched pictures since I was a kid, and now with social media (Thanks YouTube, Pinterest, Google images, etc....) I have become so overwhelmed with what project(s) to do for the day. I don't even know where to start. Should I make cards or make my own clay? Or should I design a wall hanging for the living room. I have become ridiculously indecisive with what I want to make. Also, I have become a craft hoarder. From paints, to dies and other cutting machines, to scrapbook paper and other designer card stock and embellishments, I have turned my little kitchen nook into my craft studio. I'm surprised my husband hasn't told me to get rid of all of the craft supplies....ie..clutter. My craft collection addiction is partially what made me want to learn more about digital scrap booking. It is all new for me, but I have invested in the Adobe Photoshop application and I have scoured YouTube on learning different techniques in layering scrapbook images, pages, brushes, and so on. Now I can go to the next level of design by doing it digitally.
