Welcome to Elle Designs! People were probably getting sick of me posting scrapbooking stuff on my family blog, so I decided to create a separate blog for everything scrapbooking. Well, everything free scrapbooking. I wanted somewhere to post what I make and find because it is such a waste for them to be limited to just me. I also want to encourage others to start preserving family memories. Paper scrapbooking turns some people away because it is very time consuming, expensive, and messy. But digital scrapbooking can be the complete opposite of all of those things. Most of all, it's fun and you can teach yourself!
Lastly, despite what the title says, this is not a design site. I am not trying to promote a brand so that I can sell digital scrapbooking supplies. My goal is to share and encourage for free.
Here are some disclaimers about the site and my products:
1) I am self-taught- I have never taken any graphic design classes. Someday I hope to, but for now I am self-taught. That means I will try to make the highest quality products that I can, but if you zoom in real close on an element and it starts to look pixelated or the color is not quite right on a paper, sorry, I'm learning. But hey, it's free.
2) I'm doing this only for fun- It takes a lot of work to try and sell stuff and promote a brand plus come up with great ideas for products each week and make them. I will not be posting every day. This is not the place to get full size kits with everything that is usually included. Right now I have no idea how to make ribbons or extract elements. You will have to supplement with other kits. I can doodle, so that's what you'll get for now. Again, it's free.
I want to help you get started, so if you have any questions or requests for tutorials or products, leave a comment below, or email me at email@example.com.
