Digitally Made May Challenge

Welcome to the very first challenge at 

We are a new 100 % digital craft blog.
That is, no printed digital images 
assembled into tangible, hand crafted projects.
We want to see your digital art,
be it scrapbook pages, cards, inspirational
quotes combined with photos, banners
made for social media, backgrounds
for your computer screen, digital paintings,
printables, etc and so on ! 

We will have monthly themes to challenge you.

Our theme this month is Anything Goes - 
so long as it is completely digital and family friendly !

Our challenge is just for fun and inspiration,
there are no prizes awarded. 
Our winner for the month will be offered
a guest designer spot in a future challenge. 

I created a digital scrapbook page for my project.
I'm hoping to get a decent photo of my Mom and I
on Mother's Day to add to the completed page :) 

Digital Papers : I created them myself by scanning papers
(Attic Boutique) bought from Stampin' Up! several years ago.

I used the actual papers on several other projects that you
can see in additional posts this month as part
of other design team projects I made.

The papers were 12" x 12", so I had to scan them in two sections
using my Canoscan. I then used Photoshop Elements
to piece the two sections together - yes, it was quite
tricky, on some more than others. There may be an easier way
to do it using some function in the program that I am not aware of.
Once I was happy with the way I got them lined up, I cropped them
to a 12" square and saved them at 300 dpi. Sure, it was a lot of work
to make my own digital papers this way, but now I have digital versions
of this particular paper should I ever want to print it out for another
handmade project or use it digitally on additional projects (more likely).

Digital elements : various elements purchased years ago
through Stampin' Up! for the My Digital Studio program
they offered. It has since been discontinued and content
is no longer available. I use My Memories Suite now.

Quote element : from   
(I altered it a bit by painting over the URL on the image)

Template : freebie from Miss Mel as part of the 
March 2017 For The Love of Templates Blog Train

Because I used a predesigned template for this project,
Photoshop Elements was the program of choice.
These types of files do not work in My Memories Suite.
