  1. I'm reading this at the end of a very long day, so I might be misunderstanding something, but you say the poster is 11x 8. It should fit on one 12 x 12 page, yet your photo above shows that it doesn't. I'm thinking perhaps those are 8 1/2 x 11 white pages underneath it, not 12 x 12. Which size is it that you scrapbook in? If 12 x 12, my inclination would be to use ONLY the poster on one 12 x12 background, centered. On the facing page, include either smaller photos of her during the season, or do a lot of journaling about how the season went and include some sports statistics of her team/her. If you are scrapbooking in 8 1/2 x 11 size, then I would definitely scan the poster and print it whatever size you want/need it to fit, and leave the original poster as-is to frame and put on the wall.

    Buddy Walking_600

    Buddy is such a handsome boy! Beautiful page - I really like the quilted look at the bottom. Atlas begs us for walks on the weekends. During the week he knows he'll walk to school in the am and again in the afternoon, and that's usually enough. Weekends he bugs Jeff until he walks him, usually 3 times each day, lol. I seriously think he'd walk 8 hours a day if we'd do it!
  3. I haven't researched the differences, but I know making leather earrings is all the rage with certain cutters, so she might want to look into that if she hasn't already. I second the motion that it would be a great excuse for you to get a new machine, lol.
  4. Yep, agreed with all above. We sent out photo cards every year, and rarely if ever are they Christmasy pics. Often I either use a pic of the 5 of us from a spring break skiing pic (so at least there is snow in those, lol) or a pic of the boys/us while hiking nearby in the fall. Lynne, your card is beautiful! Carla, be sure to show us yours when done!

    Let's Talk!

    Congratulations, Angie! I knew you'd make an excellent owner, and of course I was right! (LOL)
  6. I can't wait! I'll be in the carpool from Kansas City area. It will be good to see old friends, meet Laura's paper scrapping friend(s), and I'd love to meet new people as well. Come join us!

    Organizing Files

    There used to be a free download that you could use that would then allow you to see thumbnails of the psd files. I use ACDSee to organize and tag my scrapping supplies, so I can see psd thumbnails in that program and thus don't convert anything to tiff. I would at the very least keep the full-sized 12x12 jpg files for each layout. Any photofinisher should be able to print 8x8 layouts from that, and then you ever did decide to print something 12x12 (maybe for art on the wall?), you'd be able to. I personally keep all the psd files also, but that may be overkill:)

    Making stationery?

    I made stationery YEARS ago, way before digital scrapbooking was invented. I had a program that was mostly clip art - I bought it to make Christmas letter stationery, but also made some other everyday stationery with it. My Christmas letter ones were 8.5 x 11. No idea now what size I made the everyday pieces.

    Resizing

    Terri, Anne-Marie has good ideas that I would try first. If that distorts it too much, you could try the following: Place the overlay on your page and resize it for the width of your page, keeping the shift key down to retain its original aspect ratio (ie don't distort as you resize). Move the top of that layer so it's right at the top of your layout. Duplicate that layer, and shift the duplicate so it's correctly at the bottom of your layout. Then, using a layer masks (or the eraser brush if you don't know layer masks yet), erase using a hard-edged brush where you clearly have no need of the second layer. In the middle, where you need the two areas to work together well, use a soft-edged brush to erase. The undo key will help you fix mistakes, and of course, if you are using layer masks rather than the erase brush, you can undo to your heart's content by painting in white if you make a mistake. If the meet-up areas aren't quite perfect, you could always cover it up with a different brush layer - in this case, a snowflake brush would be great. Good luck and let us know how it turns out!

    Another Resizing Question

    I don't know if it's the same in PSE, but in PS I go to Image/Image Size and can see how many inches my item is and at what dpi.

    PNG files

    You have hit the nail on the head, Mikelle. I don't even download the png files when there is a corresponding psd file. The time to be careful, though, is with paper templates - sometimes some of the files are only in png, but in the same paper template set there will be one or more files that also has a psd file. Just make certain that if, for example, there are 6 paper templates in the set, that you end up with 6 different paper templates, whether they be png or psd files.
  12. Almost always, I start with the photos. But occasionally, I will go to my tagging system of choice (ACDSee) and choose one of the kits that I've basically tagged, "I love this and must figure out where to use it!" and go from there. I, like Angie and Conda, often MUST have a kit, whether I think I have photos to use with it yet or not. LOL. I can always take pics to fit it later, right?!

    Meet the Designers - Cindy Rohrbough

    I adore Cindy's style! I could easily list 10 favorites, but will try to restrain myself:) I love her vintage collections and spring collections, but some of my favorite layouts were made with her beach and tropical ones, so here's my fav for today: I absolutely love the bird, the wood paper, and the gorgeous word art.
