Growing my Digital Skills

So this year I have decided I want to grow my digital skills..I feel like I am a bit rusty, lol!!  So far I have taken a class with Jessica Sprague on Digital Art Journaling and picked up some new skills and recovered some lost ones lol!!  I plan on reviewing some of my previous classes...and making some notes on things I have forgotten about.  Here are a few of my favorite layouts from the class:

and then one that I did with Webster's Pages and the WEstern Romance Digital collection:
Something new on this one that I learned was the stamping technique where I masked in some of the patterned paper in the design of the stamp...and the filled alpha.....love it!!

 I love being able to make custom buttons with my Epiphany Crafts Button studio so that they coordinate perfectly with whatever I am working with, this is the Round 20 Button:
 The new square shape is so much fun to play with and when I saw the pattern on the papers matched the size of the square epoxy exactly I knew I found a great match, turning the squares on a diagonal made a great diamond pattern border.  I used the Epiphany Crafts Shape Studio and the Square 25 Epoxys:
