Picture Yourself Creating Digital Scrapbooks Review

Picture Yourself Creating Digital Scrapbooks

"Step-byStep Instruction for Preserving Memories Using Your Computer"

I've just finished reading this book cover-to-cover. It was so much fun! Whether you are new to digital scrapbooking or an intermediate digi-scrapper (as I am) this book will inspire and teach you. Like all good computer books, the lessons start with the basics - terms and equipment needed. You can follow along each chapter and practice new skills in working with your photos and creating great scrapbook layouts. Tutorials for both Photoshop Elements and Paint Shop Pro are included throughout the book. Later chapters will make you an expert digital scrapbooker, creating your own page elements.

Pixifun Photo Key Ring Maker Set

Looking for a memorable gift or party favor? Try this fun computer crafts set. Everything is included to make 6 high quality key rings from your images or photos. They're reasonably priced, and pretty easy to make.

Here's what the set includes:

  • 6 clear plastic key ring blanks
  • 18 printable sticker inserts
  • 2 printer test sheets
  • 1 alignment test sheet
  • Software on CD
  • Instruction manual

I was surprised at how nice my finished key rings looked. They looked store-bought, except they had pictures of my family in them. The photo area is a clear glossy plastic square, and the attached key ring is silver. They seem sturdy and well-made.

This craft kit is very straight-forward and includes step by step instructions. First, you install the software from the CD. This went smoothly for me. The computer requirements are modest and should work on older computers - Windows 95 or higher and 64 MB RAM.

The software is easy to use, for photo software. First, you pick the paper size. The included sticker inserts are on paper size A5, which can print six key rings at once. The paper can be cut in half to make size A6, but I didn't try that.

The software opens to a screen showing 6 blank spots, that can fit 2 photos each. Then you use the import feature to bring in your photos. There are many options to adjust your photos. You can add text and shapes to the images. The software includes 200 backgrounds and clipart images to further enhance your creations.

As with most computer crafts, you must take some time to work out how to do each of these things. The instruction manual covers each option, but you can try them all out to see how they work. There is a multiple-undo feature, so you can remove any changes that you've made.

If you are already comfortable using image software like Adobe Photoshop Elements, I would use that first. Size your photos to 40mm x 40 mm to fill the square with some overlap that will be trimmed off when you print. That worked great for me.

After you're happy with your photos on-screen, you can print a test page. The kit contains 2 printer test sheets. The software automatically sets your printer to the correct paper size. I put the small A5 test sheet in my printer paper tray and printed on their test sheet. The kit comes with a clear overlay to help you verify the alignment. If the boxes on the overlay match the photos underneath, then your printer should print correctly on the sticker inserts.

Everything looked great, so I put in the sticker paper and printed away. Now, the easy part - I peeled the sticker off the sheet and folded it in half. This created a flat double-sided mini-photo that fit inside the key ring. I clicked the cover into place, and, wow, it looked great!

Just like printing address labels, you do not have to print out all 6 sticker inserts at once. The software lets you pick which spots on the stickers to print. For my first try, I made just one key ring. For the next five key rings, I skipped the first box that I'd already printed. I put photos in the remaining five spots and it printed fine.

Like most computer crafts, getting the image just how and where you want it is the only tricky part. The rest was simple and fun. Personalized photo key rings would make memorable holiday gifts, party or wedding favors, and great promotions for your arts and crafts business.

AllCrafts.net Arts & Crafts Review - Creative Computer Crafts

The Michaels Book of Needlecrafts Creative Computer Crafts: 50 Fun and Useful Projects You Can Make with Any Inkjet Printer
By Marcelle Costanza

Computer Crafts have really grown up! When AllCrafts.net began 5+ years ago, Computer Crafts was one of our original pages, but the book and project pickings were always a bit slim. Well, we updated that page a few weeks ago and it's full to bursting. This book is another example of how far computer crafting has come!

In the past, I've found that computer crafts books were hard to recommend. They often were outdated or not very useful because they gave directions for just one program and the projects were not so interesting. Well, I'm happy to find a book that I can heartily recommend. The 50 projects in this book will amaze you in their creativity, and the instructions are general enough to use with any good desktop publishing program.

Some of the projects do require special papers, and the appendix lists sources. Besides, how else could you make scratch-off tickets, stemware shrink charms, or decorative mirrors, to name a few? There are many unusual cards and fabric printing projects. They have great directions and lots of uses. Other projects are definite head-turners:

-Revolving Musical Carousel
-Baby Bib Birth Announcement
-Stained Glass Votive Holder
-Rainbow Easter Basket
-Transparent Pyramid Boxes
-Wedding Lights
-Matchbook Mints

There are three introductory sections to this book, covering interesting topics. The author of this book is a pioneer in computer crafting and explains her journey and the maturing of computer crafts in a very readable beginning. Next, she discusses computer crafts supplies. The explanations of different printers, scanners and software is detailed but not too technical. I like how she gives a range of suggestions for hardware - good, better, and best.

Once we've mastered a craft and invested in the tools and supplies, we often wonder if we can sell our crafts. The third chapter gives a thorough overview of where and how to sell your creative output. She speaks with experience, and crafters will enjoy such good info on this topic.

If you've got a hankering to turn out colorful and creative items from your inkjet printer, there isn't a better book out there. I'll have alot of fun with this one!
