Here’s another fun use of the masking technique I explained in yesterday’s post (Creating “Photo Letters” in Photoshop) — use dingbats in place of traditional fonts. Last June I created this card for my mother-in-law to thank her for use of her beach house for a weekend. I used a photo I took while on […]
Although my traditional scrapbooking supplies have been calling out to me, I just haven’t had the mojo to create a scrapbook page since returning from our trip. I look at my fun supplies, thumb through them. Even printed a couple photos, but am at a loss. I have, however, been able to create 2 digital […]
I created the cover page for our Walt Disney World album in Photoshop CS. The layout idea is scraplifted from a two-page layout by Tricia Kennedy that is published in the Nov/Dec 2007 issue of scrapbooks etc. magazine.

Home again. 🙂 My husband and I celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary yesterday. But, rather than just enjoy a day – we flew to Orlando last Saturday and spent the week at Walt Disney World. We visited all four theme parks, Downtown Disney and the waterpark, Blizzard Beach. It turned out to be a wonderful […]
