I stumbled upon this website and fell in love!
I'm from Packer Territory (and I do love my Packers), and am new to digital scrapbooking. I started regular scrapping about 4 years ago when I started to notice changes in my mom, who lives with us in a mil apt. We scrapped daily until her Alzheimers kicked into high gear. Now if we do a page (8x8 and very simple) a week we're doing well.
I have tons of money invested in traditional tools (Sizzix, alphabets, stamps-you name it, I probably have it). But I found myself looking for stuff more than actually scrapping, and figured there had to be a better way. I stumbled across a how to book for Jasc Paint Shop Pro 8.0, which I have, and sat down.
Ugh, what a learning curve! (But it is good to learn new things like this to ward off the evil Alzheimers demon, which, incidently, got both parents.)
But I did 2 pages in less time than it would have taken to find paper, and although the results are simplistic, they aren't that bad. Best Part? No clean up!!! I love that!
Once I figure out how things work, and how to upload a page, I'll do it soon, so that I can get feedback. And tips. Like how to improve the torn edge.
Oh, and I have questions. Like what paper do you print digital layouts onto?
I ramble. I'll try to keep that in check.
Oh, yeah, I'm married to the best guy in the world, for 29 years now, and have to kids--Bronwyn, who just got married in June, and Mike, who has been married 7 years. No grandchildren yet. But I'm honing those scrapping skills, cuz I just know the day will come!!
