Scrapbook & Cards Today Summer Issue + A Freebie

I’m excited to share that the summer issue of Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine is now available. I’m thrilled to be working with their team to write articles and create layouts for upcoming issues.

Scrapbook & Cards Today offers both print and digital issues. Information on subscribing is available here.

To celebrate my article in this issue (including three brand new layouts around the theme of stories with heart) I created a free download that includes three pieces of word art:

Download Heart This Story.

If you’d like to learn more about working with digital word art in either digital or traditional projects check out my free series on Getting Started With Digital Scrapbooking.

    Hey Ali

    THANK YOU!!! Love the word art:-)

    I just want to ask you a question that has got absolutely nothing to do with todays post but everything to do with the phone photography project class that i have enrolled in.

    I see all the leading ladies in this industry (including yourself) use the iPhone 5. Is that because you are all Apple fans or is it because this phone truly takes the best phone photographs in the industry? What is it about the iPhone 5 in particular that makes you all avid users of it?

    I enrolled in the phone photography workshop and am seriously considering buying the iPhone 5 but don’t want to spend $1000 on a phone to take my scrapbook pictures if it is not the best out there say compared to the Samsung Galaxy S5.

    THANK YOU Ali i would really be greatful for your knowledgeable and expert advice on this one.

    Hope you have a great weekend!

    See you in class:-)

      I have no experience with the iPhone 5 but I think I would spend $1000 on a nice camera before I would buy an iPhone for the main purpose of taking pictures (if you don’t already have a good camera) :) I am sure the iPhone 5 takes nice pics, but a really good camera is worth its weight in gold – trust me.

      Hi Jennifer!

      Thanks for your reply! I agree with you 100%. I do have a Canon DSLR already but i find myself taking alot of pics with the cellphone because it is quick and easy. I do use my canon alot for more formal shoots but i just find it easier to use my phone for those spur of the moment – can’t miss photos. i have a 2 year old who doesn’t always give me the chance to set up my canon to take a great pic so i have to make do with my phone:-) I probably take more pics with my phone than i do with the Canon at the moment so feel i need to invest in a phone that takes great pics.

    How do I use these as brushes if there’s no ABR file? I’m having trouble…

    Thanks! I love your brushes!

      EMily said…

      Nevermind, figured it out. For anyone interested, open the PNG file in Photoshop and go to Edit > Define Brush Preset then name it and it shows up in your brushes!
