It's been forever since I've blogged anything! My blog has been pretty much defunct - just have kept paying the Typepad for it so that I still have access to the tutorials that I've written over the years.
I've really been intrigued by the Project Life scrapbooking method lately. Although not ready to commit to a weekly two-page spread, I thought that a good way to get my toes wet would be to try some PL-styled layouts, both digitally and hard copy/hybrid.
Here's my first digital layout - I created it using Stampin' Up!'s My Digital Studio software. I used the "Keep in Touch" digital kit, which was a hostess freebie in the 2012-2013 catalog. Before starting to add pictures and other elements, I created templates that approximate the layouts of the various Project Life divided pages - this one is Design A. The pictures are somewhat smaller than they would be with a physical kit, as I allowed room for the two layers of background paper to show through.
You can see that I used the DSP or patterned paper from the kit (or coordinating digital card stock) to create my own filler or journaling cards. I also used some stamps for the "punkmins" (from Holiday Blitz). All in all, it was a fun layout, and I'm looking forward to doing more!
I forget how I used to do my watermarks, so please excuse the ugly quick on I did on the blue shorts!
Did you notice the cool Lego-type font on the "construction" photo? constructions=instructions ! The font is a free font called Lego Brix - you can get it here.
