Adding a Glitter Style

Jen here with a quick tip to start off the month of August: adding a glitter border. It’s really simple to do once you have loaded some glitter styles, which is also simple to do. Many designers offer glitter styles (as well as many other style effects) in their shops. Today I am going to be using some from the amazing, Karla Dudley.

Documenting Summer Vacations

I always enjoy our Summer vacations and take hundreds of photos of the places we visit. And most of them end up in the photo album I create for each vacation. I take many different photos from one subject. Overall shots, more detailed shots, I love to mix and match them so you get a good idea of how it was on the places where we spent our vacation.

How to Create PDF Books in Lightroom

Hi! Barbara here to share a tutorial on creating a PDF book from your scrapbook pages. Did you know that if you’ve got Lightroom (LR) version 5 (I believe you can do this in version 4 as well), that with the click of just a few buttons you can turn your collection of scrapbook pages into an awesome PDF book that you can carry on your tablet or share with family and friends? Seriously, it’s a great thing!


I have been digi scrapping for 10+ years and only recently acquired LR. Where has LR been all these years and why didn’t someone take me aside years ago and tell me that I simply HAD to have it?! I love it! OK, you really don’t HAVE to have LR to digi scrap, but you can accomplish some pretty awesome things with it. One of those awesome things is that you can easily create a PDF book out of your photos or scrapbook pages. This is done in the BOOK MODULE. When you click around in LR’s Book Module you will see that there are lots of different things you can do. In today’s post I’m going to show you how to create a PDF book out of square scrapbook pages. If you haven’t played around in the Book Module yet, once you know how to create a PDF book you’ll probably want to try out some of the other things you are capable of doing in LR’s Book Module.

Summer Camp Memories

It’s summertime and for a lot of us that means summer camps for the kids in our lives. It might mean vacation bible school close to home all the way up to several weeks of camping out of state. There are plenty of ways and different types of technology available to be able to document those camp stories. I found a few inspiring layouts in online digital galleries to share, too.

Creating Summer Memories

For those of you in the northern hemisphere we are in the midst of summer. Often that means school’s out, vacations and a change of pace (sometimes slower, sometimes faster) to everyday life. So how do you create summer memories? Often there are big events in summertime such as graduations, weddings, vacations and holidays. These big events are usually well documented in photographs and have such momentous moments that it’s easy to recall these memories. But don’t forget the small things of summer too.

How’d She Do That? Using Replace Color

Lisa here again and today I am sharing an easy way to customize elements to coordinate with your color scheme. Most of the time when I’m creating a scrapbook layout, I’m not terribly concerned with particular colors and matching. But this layout capturing my daughter’s college graduation is one of those that I wanted to maintain the color theme along the lines of her school colors: red, blue, and white.
