Pixel Scrapper, Digital Scrapbooking and Me!


Happy Monday!

As you all know, I taught myself Photoshop this year during the lockdown, so I could become a digital scrapbooker.

It has been a really awesome way to flex my creativity and use my HUGE archive of photos.

Over the last 7 month's I have made my home at x4 different scrapbooking sites. 

Today I thought I would talk about Pixel Scrapper, I love their site and I was lucky enough to be asked last month to become part of their Creative Team - WHOOP! Love how much progress I have made in this new hobby.

Pixel Scrapper was the first site that I used when I was starting to digi scrap. Partly because of their free download model (5 free items a day, for members), which was SO handy when I was starting out and didn't know what I needed or why.
I soon progressed to being a patron and bought a year's subscription, because it was such good value for money AND because they have so many goodies there.

The digi scrap world is very similar to my cardmaking one, there are lots of challenges that you can do. Which I have always loved as a cardmaker and now as a digi scrapper, I have found them really helpful, because at first I was getting overwhelmed with 'what to scrap' and challenges help me focus. 

I have been playing along with the Pixel Scrapper Challenges for several months now, here are a few of my layouts.

The mini kit I used here, just brought my honeymoon photo to life, that quote / wordart is amazing.

I seem to be a big fan of Sharon's mini kits, because I used another one for this layout about my 'happy corner' in my craft room.

I really like working with templates, which as a relative newbie just take away all the indecision and fear! I find that I use Marisa's ones even for challenges outside of Pixel Scrapper. This template is amazing and worked really well for a challenge on another site.

My main photo today is one of my fave layouts, the Pixel Scrapper owner / creative director Marisa Lerin makes awesome kits. I used Love Bundle for this layout and it is a kit I use over and over again!

If you are like me and are reasonably new to digital scrapbooking and interested in learning about what goes into making a digital scrapbook, just check out Pixel Scrapper's new article.

Feel free to reach out to me, if you are thinking about starting to digi scrap and want some tips on where to start.



  1. Beautiful layouts, Claire! You've reminded me that my whole papercraft journey started with scrapbooking. I really need to get back to it. I've never stuck my toe in the water of digi-scrapping though.

    1. Jan, I think that digital scrapping makes a lot of sense space wise, as being a cardmaker takes up enough room. You should totally give it a whirl. x
