Quick Page Digital Scrapbooking Freebies

August 3rd, 2012 by pixel

Preserve your favorite summer memories in a flash with our new Quick Pages! Our sunny beach themed freebie contains 4 pages and holds 16 photos, perfect for those backyard pool parties and summer vacations!

So what exactly are Quick Pages? (We’re so glad you asked!) A “Quick Page” is a pre-designed digital scrapbooking template with transparent openings for fast, easy layouts. (Think: old fashioned photo albums with plastic sleeves. You know the ones.) To use Quick Pages, all you have to do is insert your photos into the transparent boxes, add a bit of text and voila!

And unlike traditional digital scrapbooking pages, a Quick Page’s design elements aren’t customizable, which makes them perfect for busy moms, or anyone who doesn’t have a lot of time to spend fiddling with Photoshop or other tricky software programs.  Simply: DROP (in your photos), ADD (your text), and GO!

Cowgirl Digital Scrapbooking Kits: Printable baby shower decorations AND layouts!

March 7th, 2012 by Nicole

I used the Cowgirl Digital Scrapbooking Kit, Cowgirl Baby Digital Scrapbooking Kit, Cowgirl Party Embellishments Set and Stunt Alphabet in pink to decorate for my cowgirl-themed baby shower. I am expecting baby #6 (we’ll have 3 girls and 3 boys) and I happen to love all things cowgirl. I know it might be unusual to create decorations for your own baby shower, but I was dying to test drive these cowgirl digital kits that I recently designed. My fabulous sisters and Mother who were throwing my shower certainly didn’t mind. READ THE REST OF THE POST »

February 22nd, 2012 by Nicole

junior-dinosaur-digital-scrapbooking-kit-photo-header-pennant

junior-dinosaur-digital-scrapbooking-kitI used the Junior Dinosaur Digital Kit to throw an Explorer-themed birthday party for my son’s 8th birthday. My son loves dinosaurs, reptiles, and anything that is creepy and crawley. So the Junior Dinosaur Digital Scrapbooking Kit and Junior Dinosaur Party Mini Kit was the perfect Pixelbooking product to execute my prehistoric birthday vision.

We chose to hold the party at a natural preserve park near our house complete with winding trails, cool rock areas, a sand pit, a fishing lake, roaming ducks, a waterfall, and a cool pavilion. We planned out an adventure trek around the park with six stops at interesting locations where we could teach the kids cool stuff about the local critters and terrain. READ THE REST OF THE POST »

Military Digital Scrapbooking Kits

It takes a tremendous amount of strength, discipline, commitment and bravery to serve our country. Our beloved service men and women risk their lives on a daily basis so that we may continue to reside in the “land of the free and home of the brave”.

Memorial Day is a day set aside to honor those who have lost their lives while defending the cause of freedom. Veteran’s Day on the other hand, is a national holiday set aside to honor all those who have served – or who are currently serving – our country. While this is certainly noble and good on our part, the truth of the matter is our thankfulness should extend well beyond a single day. Through times of both war and peace, their commitment and dedication to our country is unwavering. That’s why READ THE REST OF THE POST »

How to Scan a Photo to Your Computer

October 10th, 2011 by pixel

how-to-scan-a-photo-to-computerScanning your photos, whether it be for preservation or editing purposes, is often considered a daunting task. (Let’s be honest: eyeballing the boxes of old photos in the closet is enough to make one’s head spin!) But there’s no need to panic. Simply apply your time and diligence with the tips provided in this handy “How To Scan a Photo” article, and you’ll soon be scanning and editing multiple generations’ worth of family photos in no time flat!

Now before we walk you through the photo scanning process, let’s begin by weighing the costs associated with a home scanning project.

First, choose your scanner based on the type of media you’ll be working with:

  • Flatbed Scanner – Ideal for printed photos, either color or B&W, up to 8×10. If you’re looking to scan negatives or slides, consider a film scanner as opposed to an all-in-one flatbed attachment. The results will be far superior and the process less frustrating. Price range: $100 and up.
  • Film Scanner – Perfect for scanning negatives or grandpa’s slides. They’re a bit pricier on their own as opposed to an all-in-one, but the quality can’t be beat. Price range: $150-$700 and up.

Photo Editing Software

Many scanners come with their own built-in photo editing software, which – while easy to use – often yield less than satisfactory results. To get professional quality results every single time, consider investing in a specialized program such as Photoshop or Corel Paint Shop Photo Pro:

  • Photoshop Elements - Great for hobbyists and easy for beginners to use. Retail price – $99.
  • Photoshop CS5 – Geared toward the professional user. Retail price – $199.
  • Corel Paint Shop Photo Pro – Another great option for the beginner or home user. Priced around $80 for latest version.
