5 Digital Scrapbook Layouts For Beginners

By Marisa Lerin Thu, 11/26/2020 - 22:00

Today I thought I'd highlight a few digital scrapbooking layouts that are a great study if you're new to layout making. Or maybe you've been making layouts for years, but need a little inspiration. Hopefully these five ideas will help.

New Digital Scrapbooking Kit: Christmas 2020

By Marisa Lerin Wed, 11/25/2020 - 00:50

It's not the beginning of the month yet, so my Good Life bundle for December isn't ready, but I do have the Christmas version for you today! I thought I'd bring it out a little early in case you're getting started on some Christmas projects. I have already printed out the Journal Me pages and the pocket cards (which come in both color and black and white this month) for my December Daily project that I'm hoping to start when December rolls around.

Baby Scrapbooking Kits, Templates, & QPs

By Marisa Lerin Tue, 11/24/2020 - 22:00

Just a note at the top of the post, everything (digital scrapbook kits, templates and quick pages) I use to make the layouts featured here is available at Pixel Scrapper. So if you're looking to get some pages done for a baby in your life (or anyone else, these are versatile products) this is a great place to start.

How To Organize Your Digital Scrapbooking Supplies

By Marisa Lerin Mon, 11/23/2020 - 22:00

Did you know we have over 270 responses to the question, "how do you organize your scrapbooking supplies"? And while some of this can be chalked up to personality differences, I think the real issue is that it's a nearly impossible task. I know this from my personal experience of trying to organize my own supplies. It's so frustrating and time consuming that I've finally given it up. I'd rather spend my time making stuff than constantly be thinking about and working on moving my digital stash around.

1 Digital Scrapbook Kit Used 3 Ways

By Marisa Lerin Thu, 11/19/2020 - 22:00

I am little obsessed with scrapbooking. I can't get enough of it just one way, so I keep up with multiple projects in multiple formats. This could make scrapbooking an expensive hobby for me, but thanks to digital scrapbooking products and our somewhat excessive collection of bundles here at Pixel Scrapper, I can keep my hobby budget pretty modest.

December Daily Advent Junk Journal Project

By Marisa Lerin Thu, 11/19/2020 - 10:02

I made this junk journal two years ago during December and forgot to share about it. Unlike a traditional December Daily project, I didn't really focus here on what we were doing for the season, but used it instead as a place to reflect on my advent readings from the month of December. At the time we were traveling for Christmas, and I didn't have a photo printer, so it was a small project that I could do easily on the go. I really loved the process of making and filling this junk journal, and I'm looking forward to filling another one this year.

Digital Scrapbook Bundle Spotlight: November 2020

By Marisa Lerin Tue, 11/17/2020 - 22:00

I have another fun group of digital scrapbooking kits for you this month. As I mentioned last month, I've been really enjoying scrapbooking on my iPad and it has led me to make a lot of layouts. I've been scouring Pixel Scrapper for interesting bundles and layout templates, and below you'll find the results of some of my evenings on the couch. Pixel Scrapper doesn't really have a bundle problem (we have over 650 digital scrapbooking bundles!), but with all those choices it can be a little difficult to focus in on something.

December Daily (Digital & Hybrid) At Pixel Scrapper

By Marisa Lerin Tue, 11/17/2020 - 10:07

I cannot believe it's already the middle of November. It totally snuck up on me and suddenly it was like, "we must make all the Christmas plans!" Since we aren't traveling this year and will be doing most of what we're doing at home it seems like a great year to really go all in on the December Daily project. I've dabbled in the past, but I'm usually trying to do it while we travel, without photos. Plus Magnus will be three this year and it seems like he's really arrived at the being able to do stuff stage. So we're going all in on the Christmas activities.

Digital Scrapbook Pocket Pages: July 2020

By Marisa Lerin Thu, 11/12/2020 - 22:00

Flashing back to our summer in Oregon for these digital pocket pages from July of this year. I've been thinking a bit about repetition in life, versus novelty. Sometimes there's a pressure to try new things, when really doing the same old thing is great. I mean, I don't drink a different beverage every morning. I drink tea because I like it the best. No one questions this kind of repetition in life. But when it comes to other areas, I feel like there's often a pressure to keep trying something new. Which can be great if you're stuck in a rut or need a new view.

My Favorite Digital Scrapbooking Layouts From October 2020

By Marisa Lerin Tue, 11/03/2020 - 22:00

This layout by Linda starts with a helpful digital scrapbook template, which gives you a little help getting started, but as you can with this layout leaves lots of room to make it your own. Linda altered the template by making the photo larger than in the original template, which put the emphasis of the layout on the photo rather than the decoration.
