Digital scrapbooking resources, take 1

Hello All!  Happpy weekend!  I have every intention of going someplace fun and doing the fun thing they have there, but I realized that I told Kristina that I would give her a web site address or two and I haven’t done so yet, so blog first, party later.

As I’ve gotten into digital scrapbooking I’ve found a few websites that have been enormously helpful to me. Here’s a random list

Stuff:
http://digifree.blogspot.com/ – The digital scrapbooking freebie search engine. Here you can find freebies of all kinds all over the web, rounded up for you in 5-10 easy to navigate pages. Do be aware that if you see a kit pictured the freebie is often not actually the kit, but a quickpage or preview from that kit.

http://shabbyprincess.com/ – A site with some gorgeous free kits

http://www.pclayers.com/ -  Probably my favorite site for purchasing kits. They are paper-style kits, meaning that the kits largely contain the same things that you’d get in a physical paper kit.

http://twopeasinabucket.com/ – I think that you can buy pretty much anything, digital or physical, that you would need for scrapbooking here.

Inspiration:
http://www.simplescrapper.com/ – An online digital scrapbooking magazine style-blog with a great, clean design and simple, real-life hints and inspiration.

The Two Peas in a Bucket Digital Gallery – Just tons and tons of examples and ideas.

Tools:
http://kuler.adobe.com/ – Incredible site for creating color pallettes for Photoshop. You can choose a color and then have  it make you a pallette based on complimentary colors, monochromatic colors, or shades of that color. You can also upload a photo and have it build you a palette of colors that are in that color.

Here is a page that I made using kuler to get the colors in the photo, so that I could make paper with matching colors:

Okay, I’m off to… the fun. Whatever it might be.

Ummm…. hi?

Hello! It’s me. Thought I stopped blogging? If so you’re obviously new around here. I blog psoradically at best. I keep telling myself that I should do it, but I’ve been so distracted/focused between work, playing DS, and getting a eweb site set up for our new business, that I haven’t even read anyone else’s blog for… a while now.

I keep thinking about changing the address of this blog to shancreates, but I figured that 2 URL changes in as many months might be a pain to follow, so for now the name stays the same.

Fact of the matter is that I’ve hardly knit for a few weeks now. I did finish one LONG project, but more on that after it’s blocked, and maybe dyed. When I started this blog it existed almost exclusively for knitting projects and participating in a community of knit bloggers. And while I would still love to do so, knitting has taken its place among a few other passions lately, each and everyone I feel I couldmaybe devote an entire blog to, were I the kind of blogger that did that kind of thing.

That I, to quote Paul Gross, have the attention span of a gnat, is not news. I’ve been crocheting, knitting, spinning, scrapbooking, making cards, and doing… you know, other stuff, all together. And now, we add to the pile, digital scrapbooking.

I intend to tell you more about that and share some things that have helped me, but it’s well past bedtime and I’ve just remembered that my client is calling in the morning, so I leave you a page I made digitally for your amusement. The photos are from the Japanese Garden in the Montreal Botanical garden. The papers are from Summer Driggs’s Limeade Kit.

Is it real or is it digital?

March12

So a few months ago Mike went on a business trip with Jarond. He called me from the airport and among other things he mentioned that Jarond was entertaining himself in the airport doing digital scrapbooking.

Huh?

There were two things about this that caught my attention. One was that I was only vaguely aware of digital scrapbooking at the time. The other was that Jarond is a boy. Boys don’t scrapbook. Right? At least the ones I know that do are pretty much.. well, gay. (This is, as much as anything, a sign that I need to get out and meet more people.) Jarond has a wife and some kids and stuff, so… stereotype buster. Sweet. I like those.

As Mike mentioned this I could hear Jarond saying something to him which I remember to be some variation of  “She should try it.” I stepped over to the computer and started ‘a searching. Through Mike’s next trip with Jarond I would occasionally as Mike to ask Jarond a question about what he uses to make the pages (Photoshop) and how he prints them (Shutterfly.) And pretty much the whole time Mike was gone I downloaded lots of free papers and embellishments, mostly found through http://digifree.blogspot.com/. This was fun. No one ever gives me free scrapbooking paper, but there were tons of fun things to play with for free there.

There were a few things that surprised me. While I can appreciate creating shadows on a page to make it look like the pagewas somewhat 3D, but people had things in their kits like sea shells and pine cones and pices of furniture. I haven’t ever (and doubt I ever will) put a whole real seashell or mirror or carousel horse on a physical scrapbooking page, but apparently in digital scrapbooking a lot of people want it to look like they’ve positioned an entire tiny teapot on their page. This was odd to me, but maybe I was thinking a little too much that I wanted digital pages to look like they aren’t.

Another was that people would use only one 3×3 photo on a 12×12 page. This is something I can’t really fathom doing if you are going to print the pages (ever.) One trip to Vegas for the weekend would mean printing 100 pages at at least 2 dollars a page. Little by little I’ve been finding that a lot of those pages are either created to show off a certain design or paper, or they are pictures of people’s kids. Since most of my scrapbooking is travel or everyday life, I want to put everything that we saw at the Maritime museum on the same two pages.

This whole thing started with a bang, but I’m running into some problems which I will tell you about tomorrow.
