Quotes and So-So Scrapbooking

Quotes and So-So Scrapbooking

Papers and elements by G&T Designs. I fell in love with this quote, not so much with my page. I just feel bleh today. Tomorrow I’ll be more inspired. 🙂
**edit: I LOVE this kit and all of their work. 🙂 I just didn’t have it in me today to be creative. Tomorrowwww [echo echo echo…]
A Guilt Free Day of Art

A Guilt Free Day of Art

I spent the day doing absolutely nothing but scrapbooking. It was SO nice. I turned off the guilt filter. The one that pours into my head every thing that I should be doing or should think about doing. Sometimes I am my own worst enemy. So when I get rid of those negative feelings it’s like ahhhh. I can just sit here and make art and memories and enjoy learning some new things in photoshop. Awesome. 

A couple of years ago I joined a digital scrapbooking site and I would get on and do a few pages and then I would shut the computer and not go back for months. It was always in the bad months when pain and immobility were getting to me mentally. I couldn’t scrap, or blog for that matter. I guess this means I’m doing a bit better, huh? That’s always a good thing. I’m going to share with you a quote page I did. It’s not fancy or anything. I like the quote and I kept the page very minimal.

I’m wiped out now. It’s 2 am here and I think I’ve scrapped all the my hands can handle. 🙂 I hope you all had a good Monday. If you do any digital scrapbooking or use photoshop, drop me a comment. What’s your favorite site or tool to use? I’m only 1/4 geek, the rest is Irish. hahah
Until next time
Scrapping away the flares

Scrapping away the flares

This is what I have been doing.  I am addicted to digital scrapbooking and oh man, it is fun.  Years ago I started traditional scrapbooking when my friend started selling Creative Memories. I felt like a very un-artistic person when I went to the parties and everyone had these elaborate scrapbooks and mine looked like a kindergardener had put it together. But now, when I open them up I think, who did this? I actually have a little bit of creativity in me. Anyway, digital scrapbooking is a lot more fun to me. The kits that are out there are amazing and you can find freebies just about everywhere you look.  Ahem. I just about killed our bank account a couple of times getting carried away buying graphics. That was before I found out that there are tons of freebies.  It really is cheaper than traditional as you can use the graphics over and over. No paper cutting!!  And stickers? Oh man, I remember going to the craft store and looking at all the stickers and they were like 2 to 5 bucks a pack. With digital, you buy it once and can use them a million times.  Can you tell I’m addicted? lol

I’m going to list a few places that are worth checking out:

Freebies

These are just a few places where you can find some good freebies. If you google it there are hundreds more. I included in the list places where you can find free kits, fonts, and textures. Enjoy!

I haven’t blogged in almost a month, not because there’s nothing to write about.  I’ve been really sick and my body never ceases to amaze me in ways that it can hurt.  I decided to start writing about everything else, anything else really. I’ll be back soon =)
