MAKE IT SIMPLE

I've been scrapbooking since 2008 and still love it. Simple pages make me happy. I make mostly digital pages but dabble in a bit of everything.

Around this time of year (before December hits) I like to take stock and look at what's working and what's not for me and memory keeping. 

I've enjoyed scrapbooking in 5x8 and making my Blurb books (book one is HERE) but I think I need a change. No matter how much...

I am working on week three of Project Life today so I thought I'd make a video as I work on my digital spread in real time.

I've been planning a series of post for digital scrapbooking beginners but the scope is so large I just thought I'd dive in with a video about using digital templates, which is an awesome way to learn.

A QUICK NOTE ON SOFTWARE:

I use Photoshop Elements (PSE) for all of m...
