Ceeliebell you use PSE6, right? So, do it. I got my best help from Wen (here on the DIS boards -- thanks again Wen!) Here are some tuts, but please ask any questions you may have.

1. This one is from Britt. It's great, but keep in mind that she uses Photoshop which has more bells/whistles, but the basic idea is there. http://scrapmatters.com/wordpress/20...onday-shadows/
2. This one is based on PSE
http://scrapmatters.com/wordpress/20...day-special-3/
3. This last one is from Happy Scrap Girl. She has 4 different ways to shadow in PSE5 (pretty similar to PSE6) You have to scroll ALL THE WAY down to the Aug 1, 2007 entry.

Hope this gets you started.

May I recommend Creative Memories StoryBook Creator Plus software? It is super easy and there are a few of us here who use it if you ever have questions. A lot of people use PSE, but I find that way too confusing!! I like my digi scrapping easy-peasy! (oh yeah, I'm not a CM consultant, I just happen to love this program!)

ETA, how cool is it that we filled 250 pages already??
Can't use it, I'm a Mac girl. LOL

I think I'm going to have DH bring me MIL's computer since she can't use it anymore, have him upgrade to anything but Vista and use it for my Cricut stuff, I would probably have enough memory for some digital stuff too.

I am just starting to think about working in digital scrapbooking and have so many questions!
What program do you all use? I just got a new laptop with Vista and after looking at everyone's amazing layouts am thinking of giving it a try. Do the prgrams work on Vista?
How do you print your layouts once they're done? Do you send them to an online printer and have them print them as 12x12?

Any pointers would be great!
Keep up the great work! All the pages are amazing!

DH would probably kill me! Remember he's a computer guy.

I need to see what's on MIL's computer, I think it might be Windows 2000.

Welcome!
To answer your questions:
The programs will work on Vista (at least mine does); some of us print our pages at home, others send them out to be printed as pages, others will have a company (like shutterfly, CM, snapfish) bind a book. Some print as 12x12, and others as 8x8, but I suggest you create them as 12x12 because you can change them to be smaller, but they won't look good if you enlarge them.
I would suggest starting with the sticky titled "digital scrapping FAQ" Fran did a great job on this with answers to so many questions. Additionally feel free to ask any questions here as well. This is a great group of people; they got me started and they are still helping me!

Awesome Christy! I just saw that paper pack at Sweet Shoppe today. By the way, did you also see the templates for the 365-project that were there?

I think I have turned into a kit-collector/message-board-subscriber; I wish I could get back to being a scrapper.

Suzi, Thanks for the links, I was able to check them. They were helpful, I just need to practice and practice some more. I can really tell I have had extra time on my hands, here's another layout:

I use CM Storybook because I find it faster and easier then Photoshop Elements, but I do ocassionally use Elements. Storybook works with Vista an earlier versions. I have also read they are looking at having a Mac version later this year.

I have done books and prints through CM Photocenter, Prints at Scrapbook to Share, and printed smaller pages on my own printer.

If you have photoshop I would download some freebies and give it a try first. There ae some great tutorials for getting started with Photshop and Photoshop Elements.


Goodluck!!!

Sheri-Love your newest LO's. I really should do a year in review kind of LO!
Heather-What a great memory. Love your work (as always)!
Caitsmama-That's a great Sleeping Beauty page! Yeah, the baptism...a Southern Baptist thing.
Christy-Wow...you have been busy. I love all your recent LO's. The colors in Minnie's house are great!
I hope I did not leave anyone out!

Suzi-What's funny is I don't even use PSE! But I'm happy to try and help whenever I can. I learned you can translate tuts for programs almost always.

Christy-What a beautiful LO! That is such a great picture too!

Caits-So pretty! Perfect Sleepin Beauty LO!

Sheri-Such a pretty page! Love the pictures too!

Here is my latest. Again rare for me to use one kit but the colors in this matched their jammies perfectly. It's even rarer for me to use a template but I loved, loved Melissa's original LO and was so excited when she gave the template away.
