Digi Scrap Chat

Holy Macrame, has it really been almost 3 months since I had a baby? According to this birth announcement I whipped up it has. Thought I would share a few of my latest Digital Scrapbooking adventures. I made the commitment and purchased Photoshop Elements, downloaded the Pioneer Woman Photoshop Actions Set and have purchased a few more kits. Now if only I had the time to make more layouts. I also need to figure out the best way to print these suckers out. (elements by Pugly Pixel, Cosmo Cricket and Maybemej.)

Finding just the right photograph to adorn is the trickiest part of this process for me. I loved this picture of Tallulah sniffing a flower at the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Center. It was right before we encountered a rattlesnake while walking the trails, but that is a different story. (elements from Maybemej, Minitoko and Todd Designs.)

Here is our first family portrait. The fact that it includes a giant T-Rex seems so fitting for us. I highly recommend the Dinosaur Park in Bastrop by the way. I love fun vintage elements like this doily by Minitoko and picture frame by Kitschy Digitals (background by Cosmo Cricket). I wish I was better at Photoshop I have so many trinkets and toys that I could easily photograph and turn into elements for my digi scrap adventures. Anyone tried their hand at this? I’m curious on the tips and tricks.

I think this is my favorite picture of Baxter thus far. It would be awesome, though unlikely, if his eyes stayed that blue. This is also one of my favorite digital scrap book layouts I have done. (elements by Maybemej, Minitoko and Cosmo Cricket.) To further my obsession I also scored a new digital camera. I upgraded to a Nikon DSLR. Now I just need to figure out how to use it. Things like aperture are blowing my mind at the moment.

One of the things I am loving about Digital Scrapbooking is all the free goodies. Sure there are plenty of kits that you can pay for, but there are several cute free ones too. The feathers and flowers in this picture are free from Kitschy Digitals and the bird overlay is free from Maybemej.

    I really like digiscrapping too! You are right about all the freebies. For printing I use Persnickety Prints.
