A Blog on Steroids!

September 8, 2008

Susan Hobbs has completely redesigned her site – Heart2Heart Designs.   Susan said, “I’ve combined my website with my Blog. With so many sites/blogs out there I figured… what the heck! why not combine them. You’ve heard of hybrid scrapbooking. Well I guess you could call this hybrid blogging.”

One stop now does it all. Tutorials, articles, journal prompts, challenges, FREEBIES!, blog posts, and, yes, even her store! One of the changes is that it is now easier than ever to get some of her very nice freebies.

Digital Craft Cottage – Revisited

June 6, 2008

I first reviewed Digital Craft Cottage shortly after it opened in December of 2007. Since then it has grown up a lot. If you’ve never visited “The Cottage” before it is a hybrid scrapping site that goes beyond just scrap booking to embrace all hybrid crafts such as cards, tags, boxes, albums, brag books etc.

They have games, challenges and contests with prizes and monthly exchanges. Those that participate in the exchanges, will receive the huge mega monthly kit FREE. Make Quick pages, Brag Book pages and exchange them with the members. They also have a recipe exchange monthly, where you can get a lot of great recipes ready to print and use as gifts for yourself, family and friends.

The “Gift a Day” program allows you to log in each day and download a part of the kit, by the end of each month, you will have a whole and very unique scrapbooking kit.

And if you’ve ever thought of designing scrapbook kits yourself, The Cottage has a wonderful Designer Program that will let you create and sell your items in their Shoppe.

The forum members are friendly and willing to help or offer suggestions and there are a great variety of free tutorials for Photshop and Elements including tutorials on how to create your own papers and embellishments.

Vision Designs

March 21, 2008

Vision Designs is the website of artist Diane McFarland of Newfoundland Canada, where she shares her written digital scrapbooking tutorials for Paint Shop Pro.

The tutorials well organized, include screen shots as well as links to any digi supplies you might need in the creation process. Most are about creating frames, but there are a few on creating elements like ribbons.

Lots of artistic inspiration can be found here. One word of caution, if you prefer sites without music you will want to be sure you speakers are turned down before clicking on this site.
