    Default Whispering of Angels/E is for Eerie Layouts

    This pic must have really inspired me, I took the picture about 10 last night! lol I thought it was so adorable the way I found her the way I did before I went to bed. And yes, there are those clouds again. lol. TFL!




    This one was a QP, but I thought it fit in with the photo, and I added the wordart.

    Just beautiful! Just wondering what QP means? Is that like a pre made page? Also what all goes into digital. For ex. do you come up with all of that yourself or is it sold as like a kit. I have never digi scrapbooked before so just wondering how you get from pics to a page? Either way your pages are great. Can't wait till Dec.!!!

    Yes, QP is a "Quick Page" - it's premade, meant for you to just put your photo in, add some elements if you want and it's done (really easy, I don't normally like them, but I sometimes come across ones I find are perfect). Some designers use QP's to show what you can do with their new kit or elements, to entice you to buy them/

    So for digital ... there are designers out there who know how to make a 'button' or a 'flower' or papers, etc for digital scrapbooking. They give them out on their blogs or sell them in stores, then you download them and can use all the elements on whatever page you like. So in the first page above, I got the clouds, moon and stars from 1 kit, the background from another, the wordart I got from the CT (Creative Team) I'm on, and the font is one I downloaded. If you click on it, it'll take you to my gallery at digishoptalk, where all the credits are listed. In digi-scrapping, it's considered rude (and copyright infringement) to use an element or something someone else made without crediting them for it. It's more important when uploading to online galleries and submitting for publication, informal boards like this I don't think people really 'care' so to speak (but I always make it available in case people want to know). You can also get templates (like sketches) where everything is laid out for you, you just have to put your own pictures, papers and embellishments on it - I use these from time to time as well.

    As for what goes into digital, in a nutshell you:
    1) Open up a new document in your program, choose your size (ie 12x12). This is like your 'canvas'
    2) Choose and add papers, backgrounds, etc. by clicking and dragging (in most programs)
    3) Choose and add pictures, frames, embellishments, journalling, etc, also by clicking and dragging. Arrange as you want. If you want more than 1 of an element, just duplicate it and place where you want - this is the great part of digital, you can have 1 element you love and put it on every page you do, only having to pay for it once. You can resize pretty much anything, crop photos, etc.
    4) Add drop shadows for realism (to make it look like paper scrapbooking and not 'flat')
    5) save, resize & save for uploading (ie for email, here, online galleries). They create HUGE files, since everything is created at 300dpi usually, the image files are massive, so I resize to 500x500 pixels to upload here and everywhere else.

    There are other programs out there that you don't have as much option, but in a nutshell, that's how you digital scrapbook. If you want more info, PM me and I'll find more info for you

    What's happening in Dec that you're so excited for?

    I agree with Charys...when the pic inspires a LO like that they are the best. They are both great, but the first one is very moving as well. TFS
