In keeping with the Travel theme this month, when I travel I always prepare for my trips with a list. I like to make lists and then check items off as I go. It doesn’t matter if it is packing for a vacation, cleaning the house, or going grocery shopping. I always feel better if I have a list to organize things, as it eliminates my worry about forgetting something.
Making a list can be rather boring with a blank piece of paper and a pen, but being a “Scrapbooker”, it can be much more creative and fun. The various Digital Scrapbook Designers have a lot of elements and papers to assist you in the creative adventure. Let’s take a quick look how creative lists can benefit your traveling, and/or everyday life, and how you can also use them too, for your scrapping pages.
Playing with filters in Photo Shop and Photo Shop Elements can provide a lot of fun effects. Today we are playing with the Poster Filter and the Halftone Pattern Dot Filter, both located in the Filter Gallery. Using both of these in a grid like template, you can create your own comic page!
The art of Scrapbooking (whether it is Paper or Digital) is for purposes of memory keeping and documenting / journaling events. We often use journaling, photographs, memorabilia, ephemera, printed media and artwork to tell the story.
When we are documenting, sometimes it is in the form of a single line of journaling, a paragraph or a whole page. To document our pages digitally, we often search out typewriter fonts or fonts that may resemble our own handwriting. Today I am going to show you a quick way to include your own handwriting on your scrapbook pages.
Today I am going to show you how to make a fun layout page with just fonts, some solid color filled layers and a black and white photo of your choice. By mixing fonts, you can really create an interesting look to your page.
Sometimes when we buy a kit, there may be an element or two we wish we had, that was not included. Sure we can go and search our stash for that specific item, (like a button, a piece of tape, a staple, an overlay or the like), but sometimes it is less time consuming to create our own and have fun in the process. Today I am going to show you how to create a few easy elements that you can make with shapes and make them more realistic by adding a few style effects.
Welcome back! I am Christa, and I am here with another “fun with filters” tip & tricks tutorial. I really love working in Photoshop with sketching, painting and blending. For me, besides my love for scrapbooking and memory keeping, I also love to explore Photoshop and play on the artistic side. I do have a few plug-in art filters from Akvis (Artworks & Sketch), but there are also fun filters built-in to Photoshop, (and Photoshop Elements) that you can do similar things with. Today let’s play with the Watercolor Filter!
The Magic of Beginnings… December.. what a fabulous time of year! To me this time of year is so magical. Whether there is snow on the ground or not, it is the beginning of Winter, and the time of year that sparks Magic in our lives. It’s that special time of year that brings sparkles and magic to that child in every one of us! Today we have wonderful additions to the Magic of Beginnings Collaboration. We have a great 2 template package by Soco, and a terrific vintage mini kit by Vero. Let’s get started with our page!
Hi everyone! I find it interesting that we have all these fun filters in Photoshop and very rarely use them. (That is me anyway!) In the past, I have bought plug in filters to achieve certain effects on my layouts, but I have rarely experimented with what I have at my fingertips! What I hope to accomplish today in my tips & tricks posting is to get you to have fun and experiment.
