The Digital Scrapbooker’s Toolbox

The Virtual Conference Designed to Help You Hone the Tools You Need Most for Exceptional Creative Scrapbooking

 

Join Scrapaneers founder Tiffany Tillman-Emanuel & 5 creative-crafting experts for The Digital Scrapbooker’s Toolbox — a virtual conference on skillfully operating the tools you rely on most as a digital scrapbooker — during the month of January 2018.

Feeling Overwhelmed?

You didn’t start digital scrapbooking to become a software expert.

 

You loved the idea of crafting a scrapbook layout on your computer where everything (photos plus supplies) were stored. And you enjoyed the freedom scrapbooking digitally allowed — the ability to use products over and over and undo your last few steps.

 

And yet, as you’ve completed more and more layouts, you’ve realized there is a lot more to know about digital scrapbooking than simply creatively recording you and your family’s memories. You’ve got to learn and handle a variety of complex Photoshop® tools so your pages match the look you want.

 

You might have even spent more time learning this ever-evolving program than constructing pages you love.

 

There’s a good chance that you’re feeling overwhelmed and sometimes unmotivated to sit down and scrapbook.

Refine Your Toolbox

The Digital Scrapbooker’s Toolbox is a virtual conference about 6 different tools expert digital scrapbookers pull out to get the right job DONE at the right time — and creative layouts completed!

 

Join Scrapaneers as we explore: 

  • How Photo-Editing is the baseline tool for all digital scrapbookers and methods for editing your photos like a pro-scrapper
  • How to create and use variable Actions to digital scrapbook quicker and more efficiently
  • Which additional tool to pair with Styles & Layer Effects to build new or alter existing embellishments so you save money
  • Why and how the process of Filter Stacking can lead you into new artistic directions
  • How to use Photoshop’s® updated Pen Tool for text, simple illustrations and more
  • Tablet & Pen methods to help you elevate your scrapbook layouts to the next level
