A Couple of Digital Scrapbook Pages

Here are a few Digi Scrapbook Pages I'v been working on.  I first learned about Digital Scrapbooking because I literally didn't have anywhere to put all my traditional scrapbook supplies. 

I live in a very small home, with very little space.  When I would decide to scrap, it would take me a while to gather it all up from closets, kitchen cabinets (yes...I said kitchen cabinets), under the bed, etc.  I would stick it anywhere I could find a spot.  By the time I would gather it up and pop a movie in for the boys, it would be time for lunch.  By the time I cleaned that up, played with them and maybe squeeze a page in, it was time for dinner.  Of course the table would be covered and I would have to push it off to the side.   One day I just decided it was just way to messy and time consuming, not to mention could get VERY expensive....I put it away.

After many months going by doing no crafting or scrapbooking at all, I had to find something that I enjoyed.  One day it hit me....With all the technology out there,  I just knew there had to be something out there that I could enjoy and that wouldn't take very much space.   decided to sit down and do some surfing.  Not only did I find out about Digital Scrapbooking, I also found out how to crochet, blog and later hybrid crafting and scrapbooking. 

Now my boys are grown and I have been working on turning my oldest son's room into a craft room.   Even though, I have never really gotten back into traditional scrapbooking, I have decided to start making some more digital pages.

So here ya go!  My layouts.  I do have a few things to learn about, like the Washi Tape looking more realistic and things like that.  But overall, I really enjoyed doing these pages and much more to learn.  Thanks to all Miss Mint and all the girls at Peppermint Creative.

This one I just done last night.  It's of my oldest son, Chris and his newest puppy, Clyde.  He's a Piebald Longhaired dachshund.  Oh my goodness is he spoiled.  I have never seen a dog so attached to someone as this little guy is.  One of the other dogs in the picture is Sadie. He bought and he left her with me for a while. (He's a welder and travels) Well now she is mine.  I'm totally in love with her. (Yeah, I can't believe it either)  She is a pit bull and is the sweetest dog ever.
 This page is of my youngest son, Chance and his sweet girlfriend, Schyler.  They are sooo cute together.  I hope to have more pages soon because Prom is almost here.  I'm trying hard not to think much about it because it is his Senior year and the last to leave the nest.  This make me very sad.

I used Photoshop Elements 10 (I want the newest version) and all digital kits from Peppermint Creative.

Hope you enjoyed them and if you have any questions, please feel free to email or message me.

Thanks for stopping by! :)

Hippity Hoppity....

Easter is on its way!!  I just finished this fun Easter treat.  I'm suppose to be working on taxes, but who wants to do that?!?  It was sleeting like crazy earlier and now it's snowing again.  I'm not a fan of the cold at all.....  So I'm going to grab a cup of coffee and blog.  

These are very fun and easy to make.

I made a simple tag in the Silhouette Studio Designer Edition.  To do all the embellishing I used paper and digital elements from the Speckled Egg Kit- Brights from Peppermint Creative.
I used the print and cut feature.
Add pop dots for dimension.
Apply to the tag.  Finish by adding the rest of the elements. 
Fill the box with candy and tie the tag to the box.
These would make fun Easter Treats for "Big" and "Little" kids!
Here is the set I used to make these cuties!
Thanks for stopping by!
