The first bit of business is our winner of the Shutterfly Photobook from yesterday!!
Congratulations goes to… lucky number 12… Leslie!
Please email me at katie at designerdigitals dot com and I will send you your code for your free Shutterfly 8×8 photobook! enjoy!
One of the quickest and easiest ways to get started scrapbooking with digital is by using layered templates and Adobe Photoshop Elements [Please note these templates only work with Adobe Photoshop Elements]. There is a large assortment of styles, themes and even complete albums that give you a jumpstart on your page and leave the personalizing up to you in the store at DesignerDigitals!
You can do very little personalizing like I did taking Children Layered Template
and simply adding my pictures and journaling
or you can take it further and add in more elements to personalize the page further
for example, I took Hugs & Kisses Layered Template 5
and added in paper strips and a cut heart too! making it more unique!
All of the templates come with simple instructions that explain how you can easily 'clip' your photos to the placeholders in the templates using the 'group with previous' option. And if you get stuck, there's nearly always some around to help you out if you just post on the boards at DesignerDigitals!
So if you're wanting to get started in digital and don't know where to begin, I suggest starting with templates and as your comfort level grows so will your understanding of digital!
If you'd like to win a copy of the Hugs & Kisses Layered Template Collection [a $29.99 value], simply leave a comment about what part of digital scrapbooking is drawing you in by 6pm EST Sunday, August 2nd for your chance to win!
Thanks for playing along! I've enjoyed sharing my passion with you! 🙂
