Full Circle Friday

Boo To You! Happy Halloween! Of course I had to do a Halloween page today but I did something different this week... I created my entire layout digitally! Digital is a fun way to change up your scrapbooking style. Digital scrapbooking includes everything from adding text to a photo, to creating photo blocks, to creating an entire album. There is a lot of flexibility and you don't have to give up the traditional paper, stickers, rubons, etc. There is a creative, fun balance between digital and traditional scrapbooking.

If you are interested in learning more about digital scrapbooking, Windy City Scrapbooking now offers digital scrapbooking classes. Sesil teaches our "Get Digi" class with Adobe Photoshop Creative Suite 3 and I teach the same class with Adobe Photoshop Elements 6. Right now we offer this intro-to-digital class; in the next several months we may consider a more advanced class. Check out our website and class calendar for more details!

This week's sketch has a 5x7 focal photo and 2 smaller accent photos. The cool thing about sketches is that they are adaptable. I decided to flip the entire sketch vertically so it was facing a different direction.

Most of the supplies are from Designer Digitals, a great digital scrapbooking website run by Katie Pertiet. She also graciously donated all the digital elements we use in our Get Digi class at WCS. (I created the orange cardstock background myself.)

Don't Forget!
We are having another Guest Designer Sketch for next week. Use the sketch in this link to inspire a layout (the sketch at the bottom of the post). Email a scan or clear photo of your completed layout, 500K or less, to by Wednesday, November 5th. All entries will be posted on next week's Full Circle Friday. Blog candy will be given away too!
