My First Digital Layout


I used a freebie digital set from DCWV to create this layout. It is called the "the Guy Digital Kit" so I'm guessing it's like the paper stacks and accents you can buy in the stores all bundled up in a digital set. This is my very first time playing with digital scrapping and overall was pretty easy. Of course I must tell you that I was already pretty fluent with my Printshop software (which is what I used to create this) so that may be why it was easy for me?
I'm happy with the way it turned out, but I think I'll still do most (like 95%) of my pages the old fashioned way :) I love the ability to create whatever element I want for my pages, versus being limited to what's available in digital form. This does open up all whole new range of uses as far as hybrid scrapping goes.
For my layout I used this weeks Sketchy Thursdays sketch for my page. I definately recommend using a sketch when creating a digital layout. It makes it go soooo fast. Just drop the elements on the page as shown in the sketch! Why do I feel like I'm cheating though?
So, anyone else like to dabble in digital scrapping? I'd love to hear about it.

i am glad I see your lo cause I bought the stack like two weeks ago and haven't used it yet. It came out really nice...if I was more computer savvy I will give digi a try.

Oh and I wanted to say the photo frame you made is absolutely gorgeous.

I dabbled a little in digi, but I love my paper and stash too much, haha! I agree though, sketches with digi is the way to go! LOVE your first try at it, looks so great!
