NEW VENTURE INTO DIGI SCRAPBOOKING!



I just received my copy of My Digital Studio from Stampin' Up last week. I am in love! It is so easy to use. I have been wanting to get into digi scrapbooking for some time now. I've been trying to learn it using Adobe's PhotoShop Elements software and have not been getting anywhere fast. This was amazingly easy. Most of the album uses premade layouts but I did do about four of the pages from scratch! I next want to learn how to use other papers and embellishments I have on my computer that are not actually part of this program. Until I learn how to that there is plenty to use in the program including lots of stamped images. You really do get a lot for the $80 price tag. And you can do cards and calendars as well. Plus some multimedia stuff as well I think. This program will be available on October 1. It sure is a lot less messy of a way to scrapbook; though I still plan to do the real things.

I've also printed out the pages for this album. At least from my canon printer even on brochure paper which is almost a card stock weight, but not quite, it still looks like a printed page. Not as much visual dimension as I had been hearing people say there was. Maybe they have better printers or they had them professionally printed.

I'm not giving up on learning PhotoShop Elements yet, but at least I can do some projects for immediate gratification while learning it.

I like your slide show, Suzanne. The area you visited really interests me. I didn't know SU! was bringing out a digital product - it looks good. I wonder if it will come to Australia? Our big prediction is that the Big Shot will become available soon...

I've tried a few digi programs from photo printing services and they are all easy to use. Photoshop is hard but it does produce some very lovely effects. I need to work more with it too!

Your book looks terrific!

I'm also now dabbling in Digi-scrapping, with a serious album goal in mind. I have the PSE and also another program, and will have to decide between ease and sophistication. Still working on that decision.

Sounds like fun, but I must control myself and not start another hobby. If I did, what would I do with all my yarn stash?
