I’m in love with the All New Custom Path because it lets me make make my photo books exactly the way I want. I can move and re-size text and photos, add fun embellishments, and choose from an amazing selection of backgrounds and layouts so that my book looks special – like no one else’s.
I’ve completed my sixth All New Custom Path book (did I mention I’m addicted?), and with this latest one I’ve discovered an incredibly useful tool. Idea pages.

"Along with the other Scrap Girl designers, I regularly write tutorials that are included in the daily newsletter. All of these tutorials are compiled quarterly and featured in an e-book, Scrap Girls Tutorials and Way Cool Stuff, that is available for purchase in the Scrap Girl Boutique.
I don’t hybrid scrapbook layouts. I do, however, use my digital scrapbooking supplies to create crafts. Some of the projects I have completed are mini books, coffee mug inserts, greeting cards, decorative magnets, and graphic baby onesies for baby shower gifts."
