Topics I've Started

2015-08-04 Tuesday Newsletter Challenge

Today, 12:08 PM

Are you one of those people who follow various scrapbooking blogs or buy magazines about scrapbooking? If so, you might have noticed one of the latest trends is journaling or using word art right on top of your photo. Now, we're not talking about slapping a date on as an afterthought because you can't figure out where else to put it (not that any of us have ever done that...really!). What we're talking about is intentionally using the journaling/word art to help tell the story or draw attention to the picture or a part of the picture. Today's challenge is to Journal on Your Photos.


Post your finished layouts in the Newsletter Challenge Gallery!

2015-07-20 Monday Challenge

20 July 2015 - 08:27 AM

As artists, inspiration can be found just about anywhere. For today's challenge, use one of the following images as your inspiration. Each image provides an example of a texture, a pattern, and a color. For an easy challenge, choose just one texture, pattern, or color for inspiration. For a harder challenge, choose two or three. Be sure to let us know what you used as your inspiration when you post your layout. When you're finished, post your layouts in the Monday Random Challenge Gallery so we can ooh and aah over them.

Do you ever get tired of your photos being traditional rectangles and squares? Sometimes, it's nice to just change things up a bit. For today's challenge, let's use a different shape as the photo mask(s) in our layouts. Photoshop and Photoshop Elements have quite a variety of shapes that come standard, or you could check out the Boutique for some more unique ones. Custom Shapes


When you're finished, post your layouts in the Monday Random Challenge Gallery so we can ooh and aah over them.


I'll be back a little later with mine. I'm on my way out the door for P.T. Have fun!

Alright ladies, I'm stuck. My PS spellchecker is set for UK English instead of American English. Any ideas how to switch it back?

2015-05-23 Weekend Challenge

23 May 2015 - 10:33 AM

In years past, we did a “What's in Your Purse?” challenge where we emptied the contents of our purse, took pictures, and made a layout. For this weekend's challenge, let do a “What's in Your Fridge?” challenge. Journal about the contents of your fridge. You could talk about the staples, items that are always in there, or maybe the party that you're preparing for. Or, perhaps your fridge is habitually empty because you're never home. You can take photos of the entire fridge, or just the items that you're journalling about. What ever angle you want to take is fine, but let's capture this season in our lives from a unique perspective...the refrigerator.


When you are finished please post your completed layout in the Weekend Challenge Gallery for all of us to see and leave a link here in this thread.


If you need inspiration, there's a whole section in the Boutique the get you going: Cooking & Food.


Here are a few of my favorites:

Autumn Spice Collection Mini

Cherry On Top Collection Biggie

Cocktail Hour Embellishment Mini

Fruit Stand Collection

Pappas Pizza Collection Mini

ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates: Sweet Tooth

Viva Mexico Collection

Lemonade Stand Collection


I took my pictures. I'll be back later with my layout. Enjoy!
