Learning a new craft…


Well, I think I am safe to start blogging a little more…it feels right. :)

I want to tell you about a new project I started years ago and was too intimidated to proceed  with.  It is digital scrapbooking using Photo Shop Elements.  I recently had to buy a new program ( long story) so I now have PSE 10.  I found a wonderful site with GREAT videos and I am taking this step by step.  :)

 Learn Photo Editing at NAODS.com

I have learned that I have a  response to new adventures that is not so great…if I don’t think I could do it perfectly, I avoid it at all costs, but then beat myself up because I don’t try…pretty stupid!  So in essence, this learning digital scrapbooking is part of my therapy…


I want to share with you a wonderful graphic artist that is at Sweet Shoppe Digital Scrapbooking…her name is Juliana Kneipp….here are some of her beautiful kits…







And of course….vintage kitchen goodies!


Here are some examples of pages done with her kits…just amazing!





This is one of my goals…I WILL do beautiful layouts like this!  One step at a time….:)


The Project Life work is also coming along….hard not to feel overwhelmed, but I just breathe….lol  Also…I can do those pages digitally!

I am going  to put some wonderful vintage Christmas ephemera kits together for Etsy…please hang in there, I will get them done soon!


If you want to see more of Julianna’s items just click on the “Sweet Shoppe” words above, it will take you there…


Thanks for coming over…:)

I've been watching the mail and hoping that the package I sent you will come back this way. I am simply heartsick about it. I promise tho' that if it doesn't come back, I will make them again after the holidays. You are such a sweetie...I so hate to let you down.

So good to see you posting again and that you are trying something new. Some fun vintage inspired digital kits. Maybe someday I will have courage to pick up a needle and thread. One step at a time.

Can't wait to see what wonderful pages you create. Just remember that everything we know was new at one time. Which is what I tell myself while trying to figure out what I did to my laptop.

Does it make you feel better knowing that I've had PE10 for a few years now and still haven't installed it!!! Please learn it and then come here and teach me-LOL! I love the look of the digital stuff. Are you going to use it with your genealogy projects?
I am wanting to make a December Daily book this year. I've never done one but they are so cool...lots of inspiration on Pinterest!
Right now I am so busy with craft show stuff. I'm working on Christmas things and I always think of you when I'm using red and white. I'll have peeks on my blog soon, I hope.
I'm very happy to see you back here again!
