Week 12: Merry Christmas My Digital Studio page

Here is a darling scrapbook page that you can make, now that the holidays are done!

There are five things that I really love about digital scrapbooking as opposed to
traditional scrapbooking.

1) It is super easy. This page takes just minutes to make. And you can
re-arrange items with a click of a button.

2) You can make the photo any size you want. With a cute photo like this, you
can (and want to) make it take up the whole page.

3) I never have to worry about matching colors. For this page, I pulled the
colors from the photo to match the background, mats and font colors.

4) I can layer stamps over top of a photo without worrying about affecting the
photo.

5) Accent pieces like the banner and the Merry Christmas are super easy to use
embellishments, simply by taking the pre-done images from kits.
