ATG Gun...

I finally ordered my ATG Gun. I started scrapping the twins' baby books last week and quickly realized that the glue dots and cheap double sided tape dispensers were not going to make this project go any faster. I found the large glue dots to not come off the tape roll and actually rip my paper. The smaller (mini) glue dots work wonderfully but due to the size, it requires a lot to get even the smallest embellishment stuck down to the page. Not only that, this was getting to be really expensive. The double sided tape dispenser was just useless. It would sometimes come out right and sometimes it would not, even when it does come out, its not sticky AT ALL!

I finally read some reviews on the ATG and found a website that sells them for cheap so ordered it. I should be getting it tomorrow and cannot wait to re-start the baby book project!

This is really exciting for me!

Started Digital Scrapbooking...

I was recently introduced to a website a friend of mine was using to take Photoshop Classes. I took the plung and bought the first set (set of 3) photoshop classes. It was a 4 lesson class with about 5-8 tasks within each lesson... I completed it in 2 evenings. It was AMAZING. I never thought using photoshop would be so easy and these classes really helped!

I took what I learned to make our family Christmas Card for this year. I got lots of compliments on it and wanted to share it with all of you!

Let me know what you think!

Baby Books FINALLY Started

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to check in and say hi! I am actually not sure how many people read my blog or come here to see my recent projects.. I guess I would love to know! So if you are here reading this, please leave me a comment! I know my counter says over 12, 000 visitors, I guess it's just really hard for me to imagine that many people have looked at my blog... what does everyone think? Is all this blogging for nothing? Do people like my projects? Is anyone out there inspired by MY work? I guess these are some of the questions that run through my mind on a daily basis.

So back on topic.. I was so excited to have started my twins' baby books this weekend. They will be a year and a half in just 3 short days and I knew I was falling way to behind. I will post pictures of some of the layouts as I complete them!

Until then, Happy Scrapbooking!
