My Story: My Abilities and Hobbies

After being under the gun to complete February assignment, I made time to complete not just one set for the month of March but two. This was an easier challenge, particularly since this is the time of year that I adore and allow myself the time to investigate the new growth of spring. It seemed only natural to focus a couple of layouts to spring’s beauty. My walks this year have been limited to Gibbs Gardens (daffodit page) and Amicalola Falls.

My Story: My Personality & Quirks

During February, the Scrapper’s Guide challenge was to create at least two pages that might illustrate the scrapper’s personality and quirks.

Admittedly, February was a very hectic month for me and at the 11th hour, I frantically worked on the challenge. I’m not very happy with the results, but to be fair I’ve finally decided to post them on this blog to continue the saga.

My Story: People I Love

Digital Scrapper is one of my favorite places to learn about digital scrapbooking techniques. I’ve been a premium member for many years and really enjoy the monthly theme kits (papers, elements, and even quick pages) as well as their weekly scrapbooking tips. Linda Sattgast has recently begun adding structured classes.

“Your Story. Brillant” is her newest offering which particularly appealed to me for two reasons—the theme easily relates to family history, and the goal is to produce two pages a month (more if one has time time and resources). At the end of the year each student should have a book to publish with a minimum of twenty four pages. Each month has a different focus. This month the focus is “People I Love” and I’m sharing the two pages that I have created.

These pages were created using my photographs, elements and papers  from “Ever After” kit by Sweet Shoppe Designs, and paper by Krystal Hartley from “Ever After” kit, copyright 2010 by Sweet Shoppe Designs.

I’m already thinking about what I will do for next month’s project—”Through My Eyes.”

FGS 2011, Springfield: Digital Scrapbooking

Before you know it, it will be time to attend the Federation of Genealogical Societies 2011 Conference, Pathways to the Heartland, in Springfield, Illinois (September 7-10).

I’m excited about the opportunity I will have to present a one-hour presentation called “Digital Scrapbooking.” During the presentations I will be providing techniques for organizing your family history using scanners, digital images, digital audio files, digital video clips, word processing, and genealogy database files, will be discussed. There is a lot to talk about in just sixty short minutes, but my goal is to motive those in attendance and have them going home anxious to get their documents and photographs ready for digital scrapbooking. This session (S-407) will be presented on Saturday (September 10th) morning from 8:00-9:00 am.

Hope to see you there!

Scrapbooking Digitally

My iMac is the center of my workday and, frequently, my snatches of creative personal time as well. I have a passion for digital scrapbooking.

Years ago I made efforts to create a traditional scrapbook or two. However, I frequently found myself frustrated. After assembling all the photographs I planned to use (always using a copy and leaving the original unharmed by scissors, glue, or paste), my papers, and tools, and on my dinning room table—traditional scrapbooking takes a lot of layout space—it was not unusual for me to learn that my stockpile did not contain enough of the items I wanted to use. At the time, the nearest store for me to purchase supplies was at least three-quarters of an hour drive one way. The hobby can be very expensive, particular if you want to reproduce your work to distribute to more than one individual!

Then I discovered digital scrapbooking! Now my workspace is neat and takes up very little space. No cluttering the dinning room table—unpacking from storage and putting everything back in storage when my allotted time frame was complete.

I’m pleased to be presenting a session on Digital Scrapbooking at the FGS Conference in Springfield, Illinois, on Saturday, September 10th.
