10 Things on the Tenth

So for today's "Ten" list, I thought I'd share my favorite go-to's for digital scrapbooking (not in any particular order):

1. Ali Edwards @ Designer Digitals.  I love a LOT of her stuff, but my favorites would be her templates from her "Yesterday and Today" class over at BPC.  Also loving these, which occasionally appear as free downloads on her blog:
31 Days Of Thankful Thoughts Photo And Journal Overlays

2. Cathy Zielski @ Designer Digitals. I really love Cathy's clean, linear style and fantastic use of type. Her templates are a real go-to for me.  Like this one that I bought today:
Cathy Zielske's Layered Template No. 61
Did I mention that Designer Digitals is having their quarterly sale right now??? 30% of EVERYTHING in the store!!!

3. Katie Pertiet @ Designer Digitals. I would be embarrassed to admit how much of her stuff is in my digi collection.  Right now I'm enamoured with her blendable templates - like this one:
Blendables Layered Template No. 07

4. Sue Cummings @ O'Scraps - especially her 52 Inspirations line.

5. Jessica Sprague @  This is the place for Photoshop Elements Education!  If you are relatively new to Photoshop and want to learn to use it, I highly recommend this class:

6. Krystal Hartley @ Sweet Shoppe Designs. I adore her kits! Like this one:
Butterflies Are Free to Fly by Krystal Hartley

7.  Miki Ferkul - Studio Miki @ ScrapbookGraphics. If you are looking for richly saturated color kits, Miki is your girl!
Belinos Page Kit

8. Lorilei Murphy - Studio Rosey Posey @ ScrapbookGraphics - blended templates, fragments, wonderful collections with multiple uses...
You Are

9. Kim Klassen @ Kim Klassen Cafe - the only place to go for textures! She offers a weekly newsletter with  freebie textures.  Her site has free tutorials, a subscription area, and classes. Her work is amazing.

10. Kayla Lamoreaux @ DigiScrap101 - for everything you ever wanted to know about digital organization! She has a class called "Finding Photo Freedom" about organizing your digital photos.  She offers FREE tutorials on Lightroom, Photoshop Elements, and more.  She has great blog articles about why your photo library is so important, the necessity of backup, and the power of 20.  Lots of good stuff here.

Some interesting looking links here,Cheri.
I often go to the first looking at their stuff.
I do have that Jessica Sprague class sitting on my computer....gathering dust....I really must open it up!!!
I'm definately going to look at the last one....a new one to me.

Yes I had noticed they were having a sale and was resisting temptation but now I can just say you sent me ;0)
Will have to do the Jessica Sprague class as I do not get the best out of digi. Think I signed up to the free one.

Great list. We share many of the same go gals.

What a great inclusive list Cheri. It reminded me that I have Up & Running in my account over at JS but I haven't done much in it yet!

alexa said...

Some of these I know but some I don't, so am grateful for the pointers. :)

Amy said...

DD and Oscraps are my favourites, but it is nice to be pointed towards some new designers.
JS is hands down the best for classes though, she is fantastic!

Lots of great resources! I love Ali's and Cathy's stuff and use them myself for my paper scrapping too. :) Will check out some of your other links too! :)

Great list. I have a ton of Katie's stuff too. She's so prolific.

What a great resource list Cheri. I love textures and have used a couple on photos during a free JS class. It looks like you have prompted a few people (including me!) to dust off Up and Running. Thankyou.

Oh, I'm excited to see these. I'm off to a Church Leadership Development Day, but I'll be back to check them all out!

Something I've never done is digi scrapping and partly down to the fact I just don't know where to start. Thanks for sharing and hope you have a great weekend

Fun list! I haven't tried digital scrapbooking yet, but I'm fascinated by it!

Miriam said...

What a great list! I am with you on Designer Digitals & I also have an embarrassingly large amount of Katie Pertiet designs:)

Great list, Cheri. Funny, I just subscribed to Kim Klassen's newsletter earlier today. I'm going to watch her video tutorial on textures...wish me luck!
