These images came up in my Facebook memories.  They are from 2009 & 2010 and made in StoryBook Creator 3.  Back then, we didn’t have the tools we have now with Artisan 5.  I was driven by figuring out how to do what I did traditionally and make it digitally.  Back then we didn’t have a rip tool.  I had to “harvest” the rip from a page made by Creative Memories and then paste it on my new page.  I was teaching myself how to make custom shapes and blending papers and photos.  Learning how to create effective layers was a bit of a process.  Then the day came where I figured out how to “fold” paper digitally!  Now, we have Artisan 5 and the pixels2Pages team!  That is an awesome combination.  We have the powerful software to create these pages.  And, we have p2P to teach us.

    I tried to go to the tips at the bottom of the blog and got a 404 error on all 4.

  2. You are so right, Kim! I remember seeing the Globe for the first time and thinking, “I will NEVER be able to do that!” The Pixies and pixels2Pages are the reason why I have switched to digital scrapbooking and I have never looked back! I love my membership and am so glad that I have been a member from the beginning! It always amazes me what you and the other Pixies can do in Artisan 5 and that you are able to teach the rest of us how to do all those amazing techniques! THANK YOU! I can’t wait to see you in April!!!
