Journaling

I want to start including more journaling in my pages.  I love reading the entries other digital scrappers add to their pages.  It’s a great way to remember the story behind the pictures taken.  My only problem is that I often don’t remember a lot of the story, but if I’m able to get a page done shortly after the pictures are taken, it may be possible.

Here is a page I made from our trip to Leah’s elementary school yesterday.

I Treasure his Smile

It is a treat to see a smile on J’s face.  It happens more and more now, but it still has to be earned.

I made this page with parts of the “No Pirates Allowed” blog train.  I LOVE the colour palette and all the designers contributed beautiful papers and elements.

Upcoming Additions to my Blog

It has been about 6 months since I discovered digital scrapbooking and I am just as obsessed now as I was when I first started.  I enjoy being able to share my LOs with anyone who is interested in visiting my blog.  I’m also happy to share links to the designers of all the wonderful kits I use in my work.

In addition to sharing my favourite pages with you, I plan to start adding a few new features.  One feature will be tutorials for GIMP (the free program I use for digital scrapbooking).  It can be challenging to find good tutorials out there for GIMP and often when I do find what I need, it’s for an older version of the program.  Through trial and error, I’ve figured out how to do a lot of things with the program and I am happy to share what I’ve learned.

I will also be sharing some of my templates.  I have really enjoyed learning how to make templates and I figure why not share them.  It’s always great when you find just the right template for a page you have in mind.  It makes it much easier to put it all together.  Hopefully my templates will inspire someone else!

I also have another special project that I am very excited about, but I’ll save that for a later date.

In the meantime, here is a recent LO I made of my daughter when she was a baby.  One of the great advantages of having just discovered digital scrapbooking is that I have thousands of photos already waiting to be used.  If only I had more time…
