Tool Time Chat At 12 Noon (Et)


Recommended Posts

12:00 p.m. (ET) Tool Time

It’s Tool Time! Join Conda (SodScrap) for some tips and ideas for using tools like Styles, Actions, and Custom Shapes to enhance your layouts.

Your challenge is to create a layout using at least TWO TOOLS. (shapes, styles or actions) Be sure to let us know which you used and post it in the Digital Scrapbook Day - 2015 - Gallery and link back to this thread.

I will be linking some of my favorite tools after the chat. Feel free to share your favorite tool(s) with us!

Two blog articles regarding styles:
We discussed:
  • Adding styles to enhance "less than perfect" photos (see links in above post for a few suggestions)
  • Adding two styles to a layer/item (1. Hold the shift key while adding the second style, OR duplicate the layer and add the second style to the copied layer)
  • Using styles on layers in templates instead of recoloring or clipping papers
  • Using shadow styles to add the finished look to layouts
  • Adjusting colors of styles by adjusting the effects of the style
  • Turning off or adjusting the drop shadows of styles
  • Custom shapes as photo mats or journal spots
  • Adding styles to custom shapes

And so much more!!! Please feel free to share your favorite Styles, Actions and Shapes from the boutique as well as your favorite ways to use them.
