I am really ashamed to show my very first layouts, so I chose this one from 2013 Father's Day. This is still terrible, though, but I love it because it is about my late father.


This one is very recent...

I am loving these layouts! It's awesome to see how far you've all come in your journey. I think the development of shadow skills is where I see the biggest difference in layouts. So cool!

In my early digi days I taught myself how to use an old copy of Photoshop a friend gave me and I was a huge collector of freebies. This layout is from 2009 (sorry for the ginormous size):




...and here is my most recent SSD upload:

I started scrapping again (and posting my pages online) in September 2016. Here is one of my first pages at SSD. I'm so happy I've learned how to shadow!



And here's one of my favorite pages this month

Coming up to 8 years ago from the SSD gallery. Had older ones, but the sites no longer exist, and I am not sure what EHD they are saved on!


And this month...

I had been a paper scrapbooker for many years and played around with digiscrapping (making FB banners, cards, invitations etc.) before I really started creating layouts but this is the first layout I ever uploaded to the Sweet Shoppe.

January 2018


My most recent layout

So when I started, I always did a double LO. My first pages were for a Disney trip...

No shadows... yikes... and I had no clue how to use a template and clip items to the shapes.


One from this week...

All of my earlier layouts from back in the day are gone because those sites have closed or I closed my gallery (DST). SSD probably has one of my earlier layouts, but not the earliest. With that said, here's that layout


https://www.sweetshoppecommunity.com...t-easy&cat=500

And my most recent layout:

This was 2011. Every photo I placed was tacked down with brads or buttons! Thanks for the blast from the past!

I took a long break between paper scrapping and transitioning to digi. This is an older layout from 4 years ago.

Here is one uploaded this week to the gallery:

You all think YOUR pages are embarrassing? Well check this out! This was back when I had first started digi, back in 2008/2010 and learning my program (Photodraw, which I LOVE and still use today). At that time, I didn't know that the shadows could be moved LOL

Funny thing though, I was a traditional scrapper since the 80's and did it professionally as well. Which is the reason the early pages are so embarrassing to me...even though they are still special.
(LET ME KNOW IF THE IMAGE DOESN'T SHOW UP FOR YOU, I will grab a different link)



And here is one I did for the Mashup challenge with KCB ♥

One of my earliest pages, this was when I was pregnant with my eldest child back in 2010. I taught myself to digiscrap using Photoshop with this project, as I wanted to create a pregnancy/baby album.



And a very recent layout:

Oh my, what a fun challenge! Okay, here's my first LO in my SSD's gallery, way back in December 2007 (I was scrapping since a year and half)...

(That kid is now a TEENAGER!! How's that even possible! LOL)
And my latest LO here:


No matter how long I've been at it, I still LOVE this hobby of ours!

This was rough........ I want to redo so many layouts now after looking through my gallery, but at the same time I LOVE seeing the evolution of not only my skills as a scrapper, but the evolution of how much our amazing designers have grown as well.

So I was a bit slow getting involved in digital scrapbooking, only started a year and a half ago, but I have learned a lot more about using shadow, clusters, different shapes and how to better crop my photos

This is very cruel and cringeworthy to look at our old work. Besides being embarrassed about what we did, the kits and templates have come along way as well. I couldn't stand to get anything on here from before 2010.

Here's one of my first digital layouts from 2006 - there were very few elements, a weird-sized journaling font, and shadows were strange-looking.

Here's one of my newest ones, with many elements and nice-looking shadows.

Circa 2010. One of the first pages I've ever made. It was for a speed scrap. I had no idea what I was doing.



This is the most recent page I've created for the slow scrap challenge. This 10 year old is the baby in the picture above.
