I fell in love with Sabrina’s designs when I very first discovered her a couple of years ago. Sophisticated and classy are a couple of the words that come to mind when I look at Sabrina’s Creations! I have always found her designs so intriguing; I love studying the previews to find simple surprises that she includes in her collections. I am thrilled to have Sabrina joining us in The Digi Files again this month! Let’s take a closer look at “Love is” that is included in The Digi Files this month:

My name is Sabrina, 30 years, SAHM and living in a small city in Belgium.
Mom of 4 wonderful kids, Sanne (12/2003), Brent (03/2006), Maaike (05/2008) and Mathias (03/2011). Married with Koen since June 2003 and we know eachother since November 2000. He is my first biggest love and still is my biggest love. I want to get old with him. Addicted to my family, photoshop, photography and designing.
I love this layout because this photo is unique to us. It’s a photo taken at neonatology when Maaike was born with the Pierre-Robin Sequence. This is one of the most beautiful photos I made of her while she stayed at the hospital. It were heavy days, had 2 kids already and I went to 2 to 3 times a day to the hospital to visit my little miracle. I choosed this wordart because I think God gave her to us, he knewed that we could handle it all. If you see her now, you won’t believe that the 2 first weeks of her life were critical.
Expired collab between Sabrina’s Creations and Kelley Mickus Designs, wishing and hoping.
I started to design after the birth of Brent (April 2006). I wanted to make a Thank you card and I did it, it wasn’t a lot on the card, just a 1 or 2 photos and some text on it. A few weeks later I discovered digital scrapbooking and a whole new world opened his doors to me. In 2008 I started to design, I wanted to make my own stuff for making layouts with my photos and since then, I’m totally addicted to it. I love the clean and simple style which I give to my products. I design more than I scrap pages. I’m behind with my yearly photo albums, have to make work on it really soon… A lot of photos are waiting to be scrapped and turning them into a photobook.
A lot of the daily things in life gives me inspiration… Magazines, blogs, pinterest, which is a huge inspiration source. I get a lot of inspiration by looking to my kids or there clothes.
Computer: Intel DUAL Core i3 350M 4GB RAM, 200GB HD. Windows 7
Program: I use Photoshop CS5 to design and scrap. I love this program and wouldn’t change it for another one. I use Lightroom too for editing my photos, I love the filters for Lightroom.
Camera: I have a Canon EOS 50D with 2 lenses; Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 and Canon EF-S 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS. And this lense is on my wishlist: Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L USM.
Anything Else: I have a wacom bamboo tablet but I don’t use it a lot.
If you are creating a layout try to resize your elements a little bit smaller, your layout will look better and don’t forget to add some drop shadows to the elements. It will give that extra touch to your layout. Add some journaling to your layouts so you remember what happened that day or what was the reason what happened.
What I also want to say is that it’s really important to backup your files once a month.
One of my favorite products is the ‘Family Love’ kit. I had a family photoshoot with a friend of mine and I wanted to put the photos into an album and needed a kit about Family. I couldn’t find one that I could use for my photobook so I made one for it. I found the colors on the internet, I definitely wanted white-grey and green in it and I bumped to this colorscheme on the internet. I had a lot of fun making this kit and my photobook turned out fantastic. Everyone can use it to capture their family photos.
I think it’s Hello with the free Add On. I’ve found these colors on the internet and the theme ‘hello’ came to me when I saw the colors. I’ve made an add on to it with some blue papers and extra elements. This kit can be used for girls as for boys.
