How to Use Photoshop Layer Styles on Your Digital Scrapbook Title

By Marisa Lerin Wed, 01/20/2021 - 22:00

I am quite lazy about a lot of things and one thing I will hardly ever do is take the time to add a digital scrapbook alpha to my layout. This seems excessively time consuming to me and also then I have to come up with a title. However, if you want your title to look cool but don't want to take the time to include an alpha, there's actually a great option for adding a little customization without too much effort: Photoshop Layer Styles.

New Today: World Traveler Digital Scrapbooking Bundle #2

By Marisa Lerin Sun, 01/10/2021 - 22:00

I often get requests for travel digital scrapbooking kits, which I take weirdly personal because I feel like I've made a lot of travel kits. In fact some of my earliest bundles on the site are all named after the countries I was scrapping travel pictures from at the time. However, most of these bundles aren't travel specific, so I can forgive people for wanting more travel related items. It's a very popular scrapbooking topic after all. Not to mention that I have many trips myself that are unscrapbooked currently.

My 2020 Digital Pocket Scrapbook

By Marisa Lerin Fri, 01/01/2021 - 22:00

I am feeling somewhat overly ambitious to be sharing my finished 2020 album so soon in 2021. I'm usually more behind than this. The only thing I can credit with my early success this year is my iPad which inspired me to actually decorate my scrapbook pages in my "free" time. I wrote quite a bit here about my actual process for doing this project. This is the sixth year I've completed in this format so it's quite well ingrained in my routine.

December Daily 2020 Junk Journal

By Marisa Lerin Fri, 01/01/2021 - 08:05

Happy New Year! Coming across today as much more on top of things than I think I actually am, I have my finished December Daily Junk Journal to share with you. I keep my journal very small (this one is about 4x5.5 inches) so that the commitment is low. I also don't really put a lot memory wise in it. It's mostly an excuse for me to play with pretty Christmas supplies. I'll include a few notes from my advent reading, and this year I included more photos since I have a Selphy printer and can print photos at home now. In the past, I didn't have a photo printer and so I didn't include photos.
