playing with quickpages part two:)

experimenting again with quickpages:)

Tuesday, March 30, 2010

adventures with quickpages:) this was an total experiment.
i wanted to see how far i could take a quick page.
this particular one was a QK from mscraps, back when they had their grand opening.
i LOVED the colors and was happy to find that the daily digi featured one of their kits in march's collaboration.
i cropped the original QK and the pasted it onto another copy of the same document. i also added a black stroke to define the edge.
the left side strip with flower was included in the original qk and i added the scalloped brush border (a freebie from karla dudley) that i colored to match the flower.
the dimensional hearts, navy flower and title were from the mscraps fortunate kit that you can STILL get at the, but i think only until tomorrow.
i think it came out cute, yes?
i also actioned the picture with PW's PSe actions.
as i have been going thru my cd's i have been finding pictures that i either never printed or meant to but never did. i really, TRULY thought i had kept printed versions of ALL my pics.
guess i was wrong:)

Totals for jan- march 2010

january: 46 pages / 198 pictures

february: 41 pages / 174 pictures

march: 88 pages / 336 pictures

total: 336 pages / 708 pictures

everyday us

quickpage, scallop and labels: designhousedigitals.
i used this quickpage. yippee me!

quick pages:)

when i decided to start scrapping digitally, my main reason was to save time and space.
there are days when i just want to scrap pretty pages without draining my brain searching for creativity.
enter the quick page!
there are so many designers that make beautiful pages for extremely reasonable prices. sometimes even free!
here are a few example, some with added embellishing and some as is.
quick pages are a neat way to try out digital scrapping and see if it is right for you!

quickpage from merkeley designs. this was a freebie i picked up on the 'net.
i dressed it up with a word strip from designhousedigitals and a brush from designerdigitals.
the page took all of 10 minutes! YAY!

quickpage from mscraps.
i cannot do inticate clusters like this to save my life, so i leave it to the experts and i just throw my picture on it:) this one took maybe 5 minutes? maybe even less.

another quick page from mscraps.
another case where i could never duplicate the clustering , but why try? it's all done for me!
all i did was edit the photo, write out the text and VOILA.

Making the transition from paper to digital.

for days now i have been struggling with the pros and cons of switching completely to a digital format for my scrapboking. it is even hard to put into words because my head gets so jumbled with the possibilities.
on the one hand i have the gist of our lives documented in traditional scrapbooks; meaning that there are 12x12, 8.5x11 and many many mini albums already finished. there is a whole life already done.
those pages are done, finished and packed into albums in themes. i still have a gabazillion 12x12 pages in a box, but that is a whole 'nother story.
so where do i go from here?
i have three shoeboxes of printed pictures that are begging to be scrapped.
this is the plan (as of today) LOL.
i set up four 8.5x11 binders and filled them with page protectors. CHECK.
i set up 2 8x8 ac cloth albums with page protectors. CHECK.
i will be moving my digital chrono. pages into the 8x8 as a sort of family album.
the 8.5x11's are set up into stacy julians LOM system so i will be mixing paper and digital as i go back and do older pictures.
do i make any type of sense?
i hope so:))))
