Echo Park Love Story 2-page Valentine's Day Digital Layout

Today I'm sharing a double page Valentine's Day layout I created for my 8x8 Shutterfly album several months ago.

I made this digital layout using Echo Park's Love Story collection designed by Lori Whitlock and a sketch by Allison Davis. I tried to pick a sketch that not only worked with my photos, but also with the embellishments in the collection without a lot of special masking templates and shapes I didn't yet own.

This layout was my first attempt at Digital scrapbooking and working on it was exhilarating.  I had a light bulb moment realizing with my simple (non-Photoshop) software I could fill any digital embellishment with the patterned paper of my choice.  

For my layout I used the following kits available for purchase at Snap.Click.Supply:
Thanks for taking a look and for the sweet comments that have been left.  I know we are all so busy so they always mean so much to me!  :)


  1. so adorable!! I love your layouts :-) question for you - I have not ventured into digital scrapbooking because 1. I thought it would be more expensive printing out layouts 2. software - I dont have fancy photoshop software. How have you dealt with these issues?

    1. Thank you. I only print them out in book form which is not too expensive. It's actually way cheaper than what I think I spend per page on traditional scrapbooking--One page is the same price as one piece of 12x12 paper (plus at Shutterfly they are always having such great sales). I also buy most of my kits during Jessica Sprague's $1 Wednesdays or during 40% off sales she has a couple times a year. ;)

      I have Photoshop elements, but I don't use it. I love an older program called Microsoft Digital Image Suite Anniversary edition which I purchased on Ebay a couple years ago (despite so many people loving it, Microsoft sadly discontinued it). It's so easy to use and while it claims it's not compatible with newer windows versions, I just read many forums that say that it still works just fine. You should totally give digital scrapbooking a try! Thanks again for asking. :)

  2. Appreciate the recommendation. Let me try
    it out.
