I'm not a digital scrapper but I love the look of digital pages, especially when mixing and matching fonts. In our current April/May issue of Scraps of Color, the Digi Den section, Camille did a great job with the Mother's Day digital sticker quote. I love the overlapping fonts and colors and wanted to use it on my layout, but not just by printing it out and pasting it on the page. I wanted it to have a more hybrid feel.
So since I'm not proficient in digital scrapbooking or all that proficient in using my PS Elements I used the software that I am proficient in...MS Word. Here's how I used the software and the digital sticker created by Camille:
1. I picked my photo and sized it.
2. Then I open a blank document in MS Word and inserted my photo.
3. After downloading and saving the digital sticker quote, I inserted and re-sized it in the same document with my photo.
4. Next I went to Format Picture, Layout and then clicked on the In Front Of Text box.
Now the digital sticker is on top of my photo, after positioning it in just the right spot my photo was ready for normal printing and to be placed on my layout.

I know this may not be the "norm" for some scrappers but it works for me (for now) and it's just another way for me to be creative. So check out all the wonderful digital freebies in the magazine and don't be afraid to use them just because you're not a digital scrapper.
