Back to School Gallery Standouts

Hello everyone! Irene here to share with you some wonderful layouts with the Back To School theme!


When I looked in the different galleries I came across some amazing layouts and I have chosen some very different styles as Gallery Standouts. Some are made with the colorful Back To School kind of digital scrapbooking kits, others caught my eye because of the photo treatment.

How to Scrap Professional School Photos

We all have them, those “official” school photos that are nice to have to document the year for your child, but often don’t do justice to show off the real personality of your child. I have a row of school photos framed in my house that I dutifully change out each year at least until they graduate, then they seem to be forever frozen in time while their younger siblings catch up. So what happens after those professional school photos come out of the frame? I’ll share a few ideas I’ve had.

Birthday Bash Challenge 5 – Scraplift Anna Aspnes

Hi there everybody! Scrapaneers Peer Lisa here and I hope you are having a blast celebrating Scrapaneers’ First birthday with us. Today I feel especially privileged to invite you to participate in Challenge #5 of our birthday celebration and scraplift Anna. I have admired Anna’s work since I discovered digital scrapbooking in 2009. Certainly following Anna’s work is one of those things that made me say “Wow, you can do that with photoshop? I can’t do that with paper. ”  This ah-ha moment was a big influence in pulling me into the wonderful world of digi scrapping. Anna brings a unique artsy quality to her layouts and her designs. Her ArtPlay Palletes are just fabulous for creating quick and artsy layouts, and she has added a great artsy flair to the ever popular Project 365.




We recently interviewed Anna for our brand new Digital Coffee Break videocast! Subscribe and listen today.


The Challenge


Today’s challenge is to scraplift a layout from Anna’s gallery for a chance to win a $100 gift certificate to Pixels and Company; a second winner will receive a gift certificate to Anna’s store at Oscraps for $20. Imagine the shopping you could do! Make sure to post your page in our Birthday Bash Gallery and post in this thread in our Birthday Celebration Forum with a link to your page and tell us what layout you lifted and what inspired you.
