Faux embossing is one more way to add a bit of texture to digital pages. And it is so very easy! Join me and learn how....


Until next time!

iScrapbook and Digital Cards

Hope you are having a great day! I was getting ready to go on vacation and realized that I had several birthday cards to send and absolutely no time to make them. Guess what, iScrapbook came to my rescue! Yes, this amazing app also creates cards like this one:


or 


And it all started with this....


Note:

The A 4 card that I refer to is a standard card making size.
You can find pre-made cards at craft shops in this size so that all you
need to do is print, trim and clue your digital masterpiece to the
front. 



Until next time!

Overlays in iScrapbook

I know how to use Photoshop Elements. Let that suffice, I often prefer iScrapbook. It is very straight forward. And when I want more it is there! Let's talk about overlays. Overlays can change the whole way your page looks; anything can overlay potential. Take, for example, "Caribbean Colors"....


It is soft. It is connected. It is an iScrapbook creation. But how can this be? Join me in this video and I'll share my secret....

I hope that you are as excited as I am about this technique! Until next time...

iScrapbook and Pagemaps


Hi all! Recently there has been much chatter on a couple of Facebook groups about using free layouts (PNG, TIF, JPEG) in iScrapbook. I can be done...seriously....I wouldn't kid you!

I found this layout at Pagemaps.com:


There are hundreds of layouts on these pages! But, when I found this one, I knew I would have to have it. Follow the on-screen prompts and click on the selected layout page. Wait for it.....
it fills the page! Right click on the image and you can download it to your computer. (Forgive me, I think in the video I said that I did a screen capture...oops!)

With the image downloaded the rest is up to you and iScrapbook. Here is how I converted this to use in iScrapbook:


Supplies used: 
iScrapbook v. 5
Pagemaps layout
Lettering Delights' Friendship

I hope that you enjoy this feature! Until next time....
