My digital design business

Don't know what to do with all of those pictures you take of your kids? I DO! I am a digital scrapbook artist. I will take all of your pictures and put them into fun and creative custom scrapbooks made just for you. Then I can e-mail you the files, put them on a CD for you, or actually print them out. I typically design in a 12x12 format but can do any size that you want. Each page will have between 1-5 pictures on it depending on the pictures themselves. I can also do a page layout based on your theme (ex: Hawaii vacation) and send you the page minus pictures that you can just drop your pictures into.

The cost for design is $5 for a 2 page spread for the first ten and $3 each after that. If you want me to use the exact same layout on every page and just change the pictures on it the price is $5 for the layout and $1 a page just for my time of putting all the pictures in. Compared to the cost of $10-20 a page for a traditional paper scrapbook this is a steal! ex: If you ordered a book with 15 unique 2 page spreads your cost would be $65. If you order one 2 page spread with no pictures on it then your cost would be $5 and you can use that spread to add your own pictures as many times as you want. If you order a book of 15 pages that all use the same layout then your cost would be $19

Delivery methods/charges:
If I e-mail you the files there is no additional fee. The cost for a CD is $15. The cost of printing would be based on the number of pages done, quality of paper used, and the type of binding requested.

Shipping: Shipping is available to any location and I would only charge you whatever it costs me to ship. I will provide you with my shipping receipt if desired.

You can look at the work I have done for my own family at Please e-mail me with any questions or to receive a more specific quote for your desired project.

Prop 8 and Meon Ball 2

Wow Prop 8 has sure got everyone here in California in a tizzy and lots of people from other states as well. Prop 8 is on the ballot in California this November as a State Constitutional amendment that would legally define marriage as between a man and a woman. I am Pro prop 8. I understand a lot of people are against it and that is fine that is there right. I do not attack and degrade them for their point of view so why do people attack and degrade me for mine? Marriage in human history has always existed for the purpose of the children. Lots of people have very happy fulfilling relationships without being married and having kids. Kudos to them. Since when did marriage become all about the adults and what we want out of it?

Stepping off soapbox now.

Here is part 2 of my kit Melon Ball. Just click on the preview.

Melon Ball Part 1 Backgrounds

I've been working so hard on creating I forgot to update! I've had a lot of fun shopping for commercial use items and I have found some great ones! I especially love the PSP scripts. Big hats off to the people who write those. Maybe some day I'll figure out how to do it. Anyhow here is part one of what I've been working on. This kit is called Melon Ball. Part one is the papers. The embellishments will follow in two parts. Here is the preview

Cucumber Melon

I have been spending a lot of time learning to use my PSP Photo X2. I got this great book called "Picture yourself learning PSP Photo X2" which has been a great help. I can't seem to figure out though where to save the new beveling tips that I downloaded. It says to save them to my presets folder on the site I downloaded from but all the folders just have numbers and not names so I have no idea which one it is. I wonder if I just save them to the main corel folder if it would find them. hmmm

Cucumber Melon lotion has a lovely smell and the colors on the bottle are wonderful. They have inspired my next kit!! Wish me luck. I'm learning more and more about all the fun stuff I can do in PSP so hopefully this next one will be even better than the first!
