For those reading this blog I am guessing you enjoy the crafty side of life (or you are family members that have no choice but to read my blog because I send you my posts!) Most crafty people have done some form of scrapbooking whether it’s a full on photo page or simply a few cards. I was a fellow scrapbooked until I just stopped, as in cold turkey stopped and wondered if I would ever get my last child's baby book done. Why did I stop? I believe it was the MESS that just got to me. In order to scrapbook “correctly” my dining table had to be covered in paper, embellishments and JUNK for a week at a time. And speaking of TIME – it would take FOREVER just to do one page and sometimes the cost of that ONE page became astronomical! As much as I enjoyed the final product it was so hard to design it knowing that once I glued or taped that item down, it was pretty much staying that way forever.
Only in my wildest dreams could I have imagined being able to see a page with the flower here, there, or anywhere with one click of a button! This is until my friend Kira @Kissing the Joy showed me SIMPLY how to scrapbook digitally. My mouth just dropped as I watched her put on a beautiful background paper, picture and embellishment in the matter of 90 seconds. WHAAAATTTT!!! And NO MESS to clean up???
It was love at first sight. (I had a feeling I lost most of you until I wrote this paragraph – Love stories always bring people back in. )
So this is what I have been doing over the last few weeks. (looks like her baby book will be completed!!!)
Next post I’ll do a very simple (not simple because I’m trying to make it easy for you to understand, simple because I don’t really know a lot about it myself!!!!!) tutorial on how to begin. I’ll also give you some links of those professionals that DO know what they are doing.
ENJOY my friends!!!!
