Digiscrapping.net - Review & Giveaway

**Contest Closed**
One of the many things that I love about the blogosphere is meeting interesting people and forging new friendships. While looking around for birthday and Christmas ideas for Emma, I discovered a great post by Heather Manning on the shopping she'd done for her daughter. So impressed, I just had to leave a comment! We got to talking, and I discovered that she also has an online store called Digiscrapping.net. I'd surmised that this must stand for digital scrapbooking, but I just had to inquire. You never can be too sure! (Hey, there are no stupid questions, alright? :)

Heather offered to let me give digiscrapping a go and provided me with a generous gift certificate to her store. As I browsed the selection on her site, I became overwhelmed at the creativity I found there. From actual images to realistic digitally-drawn designs, layer masks, "papers", and so much more, this is a dream for an ex-graphic designer like me! A gorgeous creative library at my fingertips, without the high price tag that normally goes along with traditional scrapbooking. Not to mention the mess!

I played around with the various goodies I downloaded and created an Easter card using last year's photo of Emma. I'm having trouble with one of the file formats, but I hope to work out those kinks soon with Heather's help. The sample below is something I created in under 15 minutes. It's that easy. I worked using Photoshop, but there are programs you can download for free, like GIMP.
No more will I be ordering generic, seasonal photocards. Digital scrapbooking is ideal for making cards, custom photo books, personalized shirts, and too many other ideas that I couldn't possibly list here. I'm so excited! Heather warned me that this could become addicting, and she sure was right.

BUY IT! The artistry available at Digiscrapping.net is very reasonably priced. Heather even offers some items for $1.00 and others for free! My favorites are the kits, which contain papers and elements that coordinate beautifully for a cohesive theme.

WIN IT! One very lucky reader will receive a $40.00 gift certificate to spend at Digiscrapping.net, which will get you started with a decent library of materials.
