My Scrapbooking

Scrapbooking is a way of life for me now.It has been for over 4 years. I love journaling, taking photos of my family and love colour and texture, these are all part of my everyday life and scrapbooking.

the dark side....

Mmmmm, I have been dabbling these last few days, must be the New Year vibes, and Michelle Filo and her fab templates over at Little Dreamer Designs.

Now don't go getting all excited now please, I am by no means a digital scrapping, infact I tried doing a more cluttered layout, and I really did not like it. I do like to rifle through my boxes for my embellishments and move around the page and touch and feel, nothing is going to change that at all! I did enjoy taking a more simple approach, and using templates from Oscraps and Little Dreamer Designs, these helped me delve over to the dark side! It really is just paper, photo, and journaling.

Here are my first effects:

All the supplies I used were FREE downloads! Although I will admit to purchasing a couple of gorgeous kits from Oscraps!

Now being a sketch artist and my love for Pencil Lines, I decided to have a play and make my first digital template for you to play with. Please let me know if you used it and link me to your layouts. I would love to see what you proper digi scrappers can do, and not my feeble attempt that you see here.

I am cropping tonight in the village. It will be good to see everyone again after the holidays.

Before I go, here are my Fav Five Friday!, doing it digi style

1. Oscraps - love their simple templates
2. Little Dreamer Designs - pretty kits and templates by Michelle Filo
3. Kate Hadfield - the UK's digi queen. This girl inspires me to scrap, her layouts amaze me, and they are digi!!
4. Rhonna Farrer - loving her swirls over at 2 peas
5. Paislee Press - a great tutorial on using templates

Have a great weekend, and thanks as always for stopping by
