Summer Template Slow Scrap

Recommended Posts

After all the crazyness of the World Tour, we thought we should slow things down a bit with a nice Slow Scrap.

 

This month we are going to focus on templates. Each layout this month will begin with a template.

 

The first layout has 8 steps, the rest have 6 steps each. At the end of the month we will have completed 4 layouts.

 

Members who complete the steps required and post all 4 layouts in the Slow Scrap Gallery will be entered in a drawing for one of two $10.00 Scrap Girls Boutique Gift Certificates.

 

Each completed layout posted in the Slow Scrap Gallery, up to 4 per member, will be entered in a drawing for one of three $3.00 Scrap Girls Boutique Gift Certificates.

 

You have until 11:59pm ET on July 31st 2016 to complete the steps and post your layouts to the Slow Scrap Gallery. There are no daily time limits.

 

You can make changes to your layout as the week progresses.

 

After each step we would like you to post your progress in this thread. Here is how;

  • Make sure you save your layout as a PSD/layered file first.
  • Save your layout as a .JPEG at 72ppi with a size of 4 x 4 inches (288 x 288 pixels) this is smaller than you would normally save for the web.
  • Follow the first part of this tutorial by Carla How To Post Images In The Forum to post your "progress" in the game thread.

I have a very busy day ahead so I will post our first step now.

 

July 1st

Find a template that has one photo spot. Add three papers to your template. Make changes to your template if necessary to make the three papers work.

I am definitely joining in on this month's game. I actually use templates a lot so this will be fun for me. I will start working on today's challenge as soon as I finish downloading and organizing this month's club.

I rarely use templates so this is a real challenge for me. Here's my beginning one with Just Blend It Templates by Ginny Whitcomb

I used three papers from Sea Voices Collection by Sekada Designs

Here is step one: I went to a bit of trouble to make the template MPE_SSDLAT_ModEleg_Spec-2_1200 one page and only one photo. Sigh.

The papers I used are all from the COL_Egypt collection.

OK, step 2 - rearranged the layout to use 2 photos. At least there's lots of room for embellishments.
