Current Trends with Masterful Scrapbook Design

The September issue of Masterful Scrapbook Design highlighted loads of current trends in scrapbooking. And I had the chance to play along with some new layouts. As a side note …

One thing I realize about my craft  is that I don’t keep up with the trends. I “notice” when digital kits begin to feature similar patterns, like the Chevron trend, or embellishments, like the owl trend. But I very rarely jump on what’s trendy – I actually had to force myself to use what was hot because I’m so comfortable staying in my “design” comfort zone.

What Do You Wish You Had Known When You Started Digi-Scrapping?

Last week, I joined the hip *dudes* at The Digi Show to answer the age old question: what do you wish you had known when you started digi scrapping. If you’re new to the craft or curious about starting, take a listen. You’ll discover:

  • What you absolutely “need” to get started,
  • Should you digital scrapbook using Photoshop or Photoshop Elements,
  • Our favorite digital printing resources,
  • What is metadata and why you should care,
  • And why *somebody* wants to be a dude … and no it’s not me.

We also discussed the Daily Digi’s Digital Scrapbooking Manual, which is a really good, informative resource for all digital scrappers. It’s provided at no charge so — dude — grab it and enjoy the podcast too.

I’ve “digitally” known Liz for about three years — she was the first designer I collaborated with for a class. And to this day, her style STILL amazes me. Her pages are soft and inviting and she has an amazing gift for subtle, but unmistakable, design. I’d love to learn the secrets of how she brings just a few photos and pieces together so elegantly. ~ Tiffany Tillman

5 Things a Paper Scrapbooker Can Teach a Digital Scrapbooker

It’s been seven years since I made the switch to digital scrapbooking. I’ve picked up some wisdoms along the way, which I think other digital scrapbooker’s value. One such wisdom is to not complete an entire digital page without saving. Dude, don’t do that! Photoshop will deliberately crash two minutes before you  complete your layout. Some how it knows. It always knows.

Paper scrapbookers know a thing or too about our craft as well. And we can learn from them! Here are five things a paper scrapbooker can teach a digital scrapbooker.
