Being a graphic designer for many years has made it easy to learn digital scrapbooking. In fact, I was one of the first digi-scrappers, even before it became so popular. I used to print scrapbook pages when my husband was singing for a Southern Gospel Quartet back in 1998. When my son and his wife got married in 2004 I printed all their wedding photos in a digital scrapbook. When each of my three kids graduated from high school I added to our family digital scrapbook. Those were all done in 8.5×11 format because that was the size printer I had. I’ve actually started doing books in 12×12 because printing that size has become so inexpensive and readily available on the internet. And that size is really much nicer as you can fit more larger photos on a page.
This year I was asked to be on a design team for DigiBox Designs and help demo their digital scrapbooking graphics so I decided to start this blog to show how I am creating these pages and what other graphics or supplies I’m using to do them. Plus you can see what my finished page looks like. If you like the pages I’m doing and want to use them but don’t want to go through the trouble of doing them yourself you can also buy my predesigned quick page layouts. Each of the spots for photos is transparent so you can place a photo under the image before printing or you can print the page and use it as a background for the traditional scrapbooking method.
This blog will contain other information for digital layout and design, reviews on products, and more.
