My new hobby.



A few years ago I purchased some scrapbooking supplies from Creative Memories. My dear friend Andee, who just had a wee bairn on Thursday (and a girl - imagine that!), is a CM Consultant (a little abbreviation for you IF girls! haha) and she got me interested in scrapbooking. Because we live in a petite house, there is not very much room for crafts, so I found myself scrapbooking very infrequently. So when the digital software came out we outfitted my Mac to run the Story Book Creator Plus software by Creative Memories. It took a lot of extra software and fundage for it to work, but work it does and I like it! I am on my computer A LOT and this is a perfect way for me to actually get some scrapbooking done. Here is an example of a page I just finished. I love the paw print. It was kind of an accident that it appeared right in the middle of my page, but I love the effect!

Thanks Andee and Niki for getting me started!

Nice page!! Have you played with the drop shadow yet? It really adds dimension to the page.

Nope. What's that?

Ahhh, you'll love this. Open your zoo page in CM, click on the pawprint, and then click on the tab at the top that says tools. About 3/4 across the top there is a section that says "Shadows" Click "Heavy Shadow" and watch your pawprint pop up on the page, as if you cut it and glued it there in another layer on your page.
