Sentimental Style

September 22, 2008

The beautiful designs at Sentimental Style are for personal non profit use only and they have been created in Paint Shop Pro X. All of Melissa’s creations are mainly created for taggers so her designs are on a much smaller scale than the average industry sized scraps.

Despite their smaller size, there quality makes it worth checking them out. Her freebies include alphas, embellishments as well as whole kits.

September 12, 2008

I have never highlighted an individual layout on this site before, but I was sent a link to this one and it touched me, so I wanted to share it with you. If you have ever lost a loved one to Alzheimer’s or one of the many forms of dementia this will touch you too.

Artistic Scrap Designs

August 7, 2008

Artistic Scrap Designs is a newly opened digiscrap store, that includes a gallery, blog and forum.   The designer, Jen Clark, is a friend of mine from the Photoshop Creative Elements forum.

Unfortunately, Jen’s computer crashed a couple of days ago, which put a halt to the uploading of product to the store, but there is still a nice selection of unique paper packs.    I’m sure there will be more intersting things coming from the Jen’s creative mind very soon.

Reasons to create Photo Books

July 28, 2008

Every photographer and scrapper is looking for a way of doing more with their photos and layouts.  But they may not be sure what that “more” might be.   Here are some ideas on how you can use photo books to extend your creativity:

  1. Tell a story. If, for example, you’ve taken a series of photos – from your summer vacation, from protest rallies or a series about conservation – a printed photo book can put those shots into a collection that captures the emotion or helps to move the viewer in some way.
  2. Capture an event. Concert photographers and wedding photographers don’t just snap a single picture – they take a number of photos that really show the completeness of an event. Photo books display the whole experience, not just a single moment in time.
  3. Preserve memories. An amazing vacation. Your child’s first year of school.  Your family tree.  With a printed photo book, you can keep your memories fresh.
  4. Create unique gifts. A collection of your layouts is a gift that a digiscrapper can give that no one else can.
  5. Share a part of yourself. When you capture moments or things that you are passionate about, gathering them in a printed photo book gives you the opportunity to share the world as you see it.

There are a lot of photo book companies out there, and I’ve tired many of them.  To date my personal favorite is Viovio.  They offer a quality product at a very affordable price, plus great customer service!
