Ever since Creative Memories has bitten the bullet I have become more interested in digital scrapbooking and mainly with using Photoshop Elements. It just so happened that a few days ago I was reading Cathy Zielske’s blog and saw a sale on a digital template set that is all about 30 days of gratitude. Her templates make it super easy to create a photo album showing what you are grateful for during the month of November. So I went ahead and purchased these wonderful templates by Cathy and I started getting to work last night!
First I had to get all my photos off of my camera which I have not done in quite some time. It is amazing how being pregnant can make you so tired! Any who I downloaded my photos yesterday evening and ordered my free 101 prints from Shutterfly before the deadline. Just a quick FYI if you log into your Shutterfly account or create an account you can receive a credit for a free photobook! Then this morning I decided to download the trial version of Photoshop Elements 12 I do not have Photoshop on my new computer yet and figured this was a good time to try out the new Photoshop Elements.
I have never used the organizer aspect of Photoshop Elements but I must say I really enjoyed how easy it was to upload my photos directly from my iPhone into the computer and have my photos labeled with the dates just the way I like it! My next step was to open up the templates that I purchased from Cathy’s site last week. I really like the simplicity of the templates and how easy it was to create my first day of gratitude page!
Later this week I will share my first days that I have created. If you are interested in purchasing the templates and creating a 30 days of gratitude album with me you can do that here. If you need help with the templates Cathy also created a whole post about how to use the templates which I am so grateful for and you can grab that here!
