Everything About Digital Pocket Scrapbooking

By Marisa Lerin Wed, 12/16/2020 - 22:00

Digital pocket pages are an amazing way to collect all the random photos from your week (or month, or whatever) and put them on one page without feeling like a crazy person. If you take a lot of photos there is no better method for actually getting them in an album and printed than using pocket pages. This style of layout template both gives you a lot of places to put photos and also tells you where to put them without it looking like a mess. Plus you can decorate as much or as little as you want, so you can make it your own or just get it done.

Digital Scrapbooking Layout Templates & Inspiration: December 2020

By Marisa Lerin Sun, 12/13/2020 - 22:00

I have a new batch of digital scrapbooking layout templates and inspiration for you this month. Lately I've gone all in on my physical paper scrapbooking style and just made a lot of layers for paper with a few interesting layers thrown in. I rarely make a layout without a doily included, so I've used that in these digital versions as well. I don't actually use a lot of elements in my own scrapping, focusing more on the paper mixing and layering. I do like to add a few labels when I'm finished and maybe some sort of floral embellishment. Swag

In the midst of all the good things going on at the site, some great things often get a little buried!

And that's what happened with our store and the swag. We opened up our little swag store over at cafepress four years ago now, but I don't think we've mentioned it since the initial annoucement (oops).

We thought it was about time to bring it up again, seeing as it is the holidays.
