So if you've been a follower of my blog you all know that a few years ago, I taught myself how to use Photoshop and I learned how to digiscrap all on my own. Since completing L's monthly layouts of his first year, I haven't really scrapped a layout digitally in quite some time.
I hadn't realized, until I checked my email, that it's International Digital Scrapbook Day (iDSD) this weekend! What better way to celebrate than by creating a couple layouts!
Here's the first: (12x12)
Here's the 2nd... It's going to be printed on two 12x12s.
I got all of my supplies for these layouts on The Lilypad. They have a really cool sale going on right now where most of the store is 30% off. I had my eye on the stuff I used for my layouts for a while now so I was lucky I picked them up for a decent deal. And no, I'm not on their DT and I wasn't compensated for the shameless, plug. I'm just a HUGE fan of their kits and digi products. :)
I always have a HUGE creative block when it comes to scrapbooking vacations, or anything that has a LOT of pictures. I had toyed with the idea of creating only pocket style layouts for big trips and events. And I think it's working for me so far.
And even though digi scrapping isn't NEARLY the same as traditional scrapbooking, I still feel accomplished in getting something done for our family albums.
I showed M these layouts and she asked if I was going to put them in both hers and J's books. If I scrapped these traditionally, I wouldn't be able to put them in both of their books! Now I could just print an extra off and put them in both! I'm still not sure if I'm going to do that, but at least I have that option if I wanted to.
Anyway, thanks for stopping by and for taking a peek! I'm hoping to get more layouts done SOON! Have a fabulous week!
