I {heart} Photoshop!

I have had a lot of people ask me how I make my collages of pictures on my blog. I use the program Photoshop Elements. I totally recommend it. I'll be honest when we bought the program I didn't know that I would be using it as much as I do. Here are some things, besides editing your photos, that you can do with Photoshop.

You can Digital Scrapbook- I have really enjoyed learning how to Digital Scrapbook, I do admit that I miss using the real paper and embellishments etc. There are so many pluses, and the convenience of digital, it's hard to not do it. Plus Tim is a lot happier now that my scrapbook stuff isn't all over our house. Here are some of my pages I've done. I'm not a pro or anything, but if you want to learn I would be happy to show you.


You can make Blog Banners- Here are a few that I have made.


You can make invitations, Thank You cards and this week I started making Christmas Cards. I know I have talked to some of you that wanted me to make you one. I have made about 10 different cards so far. I will email them to you so you can choose. Here are some examples. (FYI - I wanted to just throw in a photo so I could see the example better. The photos are from Addison's 6 month pictures.)


So there you have it, the reasons why I {heart} Photoshop.

Hi Kim,

Those pages are really cute! I really need to get that so I can get some scrapbooking done for my kids. (I am only 5 years behind.) I feel like if I can atleast start up again and stay updated that would be good. Hoe much does that program cost. I will have to put it on my Christmas list! I look forward to seeing soon! (Ya know what I mean.)

Love,

Keri Beth

Wow Kim - your stuff is AMAZING! You must have been the mastermind who did the signs at the church for the Christmas party. I was just admiring them today. :) I found your blog via Michelle's - hope you don't mind me peeking in on your life. You have such a cute family.

Jason & Claudia said...

Well I've been wanting to say something since your Martha Stewart B-day party :0) You are amazing! I'll have to try those cookies. Also I want to buy the Photoshop thing but I went online and there is like a million to choose from, which did you buy? Not sure what I need, I want to do pages,cards and pages for my blog.

Bacons-Bits said...

Kim, Love the pages. I guess it doesn't only take knowing how to use the program but having the eye to put it all together!
