I am a stay at home Mum to one little girl and a craft addict, I don't feel right if I don't get my crafting fix!I have always crafted in some form or another and tried my hand at all sort including glass painting, jewellery making, sewing, crochet, card making and scrapbooking. I discovered scrapbooking about 10 years ago and got hooked. After years of disregarding digital scrapping I had a sudden conversion in November 2013 and instantly became addicted. Now I can't believe I was so anti it before! As a full time Mum digital scrapping fits so much better into my life and budget at the moment but I will never give up all my lovely stash! I try to make digital layouts in the same style as I would paper ones and make then look as "real" as possible by only using elements which would work on a paper layout, adding shadows and using "glow" to recreate the inking I always add to my paper layouts! I look forward to exploring this new world and having fun here at PS.
At 18 months after I started on this digital adventure I am still loving it and have been accepted on to several Creative Teams, including here at PS! The next step is to try designing!
Type of ProjectDigital Scrapbook Layout
This layout is about my daughter when she was new born. It is based on a layout by Catherine Olson http://www.pixelscrapper.com/catherine-olson/gallery/she-s-here-layout-baby-tiny-but-mighty-janet-scott-design-newborn-birth-pink and I made it for the PS weekly challenge, PS scraplift.
I would have loved to use Janet Scott's lovely kit "tiny, but might" as Catherine did but I don't have it yet so I used "A bouquet of freshly sharpened pencils" instead, not perhaps an obvious choice for a baby layout but I am pleased with how it worked out!
