I was messing around on facebook, trying to find myself (heh heh) and none of my searches were finding my name…so somehow it got into the web search….and then I googled myself (Denna de Motta) and a whole bunch of things popped up that I had forgotten about! Mostly they were digital scrapbooking projects that I did in the past for Creative Memories. Since I just re-found them, I thought I’d share some of them here:
and a tutorial on the Digital 411 blog: Making the best of a blurry photo, has some ideas for editing photos.
and Baby’s Favorite Things:
Daddy’s little girl!! My sister took these photos.
And another idea from the Creative Memories Digital 411 blog, giving an idea for a scrapbook page layout : The Rest of the Story
All of these projects were created with all Creative Memories Digital content, of course. I had a great time designing digital stuff for them 🙂
I’m not bragging, really! I’m just mentioning myscrapbookart.com a site, get it? 😉 There’s this great newletter, or digital magazine called Home is Where the Art Is. Every month they have a new, gorgeous, free digital kit for their subscribers. There are articles about digital scrapbooking, photography and even non-digital crafts. I have really enjoyed receiving it…and especially the free kits! Sometimes it’s 2 free kits a month! I just wanted to let you know, because I wanted others to get these cool freebies too! If you sign up now, you’ll be in time to get next month’s….
Just so you can see what I mean, I’m posting the layout that I made for the Designer’s Challenge with this month’s free kit, called Be by Creashens. What a cute kit, I love it! The challenge was fun….3’s! Everything on your layout was supposed to be in threes. I started with 3 papers (2 wood-look and 1 picnic cloth), 3 bees was easy….but I squeezed my brain a bit for the 3 suns (and slightly altered a few things to make the “sun-pop”! Anyways, it was a fun challenge.If digital scrapbooking is new to you and you’d like to know more about it, please contact me, I’d love to help you out! When I first heard about it, I was sure I would never do it, I hated computers and felt totally helpless on one! A few years ago I forced myself to try and wow! my new hobby was born! I’ve been able to actually learn way more than I thought I ever could, and without too much effort (or else I just wouldn’t have done it!). It’s a great option for people with small children, as you don’t make a mess with scissors, punches, glue and paper bits everywhere!
See my Home page here for my email to contact me. I’d love to anwer any questions I can 🙂
We attended a wedding over the weekend…a beautiful spring wedding….complete with soggy wet blizzard! Our weather has been a bit crazy lately, with springy moments and quite a few blizzardy moments. Oh well, we know spring is here, even if she’s a little bi-polar. There were no pickle barrels at the wedding (just friends and good food!), but there is a Pickle Barrel sale on at my favorite digital shop, Pickleberrypop here ! You can mix and match kits for $1 each full of digital goodness! Some of the ones I picked up today have a “mother” theme….remember that Mother’s Day is just around the corner! (I’m reminding myself).
Here’s a quick page that I liked…it’s totally done for you, all I did was add my photos and journalling and title. It took about 10 minutes. It’s from Dee Bee Designs here . I just want to encourage people that digital scrapbooking can be super fast and easy!! Let others do all the fiddly work for you!
Thanks for snapping our photo, Will! Here’s one for you, heh heh, of your son and “the girls”. When I took the top photo, both of the kids were very stiff and awkward, it’s was so funny, but they stood there and let me take the photo!
(this one uses some of the other digital content other than the quickpage kit)
Oh, yes, the digi sale is only on from today to Wednesday. Just so you know, I only promote this digital scrapbooking site because I like it, and that’s the only reason 🙂 Now I need to start working on some Mother’s Day stuff with my new digi content!
