hey, maybe you could put a link to your scrapgirl gallery, that way those people will know where nice people who love to comment hang out.

The comments on my layouts were what brought me into scrapgirls and kept me here. I don't do other sites, I am loyal... There were two sites that I wanted to be apart of, but the navigation almost seemed condusive to scrap clicks, i think, but could be wrong.

In Topic: Torn Paper Tutorial

That sounds good... thanks for info and I did understand what you wrote.
I will have to get CB edges too.

I don't have a good link, but here is what I did before I bought Cheryl's Torn Paper Edges:

Use the lasso or polyagnol lasso to create a jagged edge along the part of the paper you want to tear. Remember to follow along the flat edges that you don't want torn also to select the whole part of the paper. (i hope that just made sense) Then, once you have it selected CTRL+J to put it in a new layer. Delet the original layer. Ctrl+J again to duplicate the "torn" layer. Select the bottom of these two layers and use Ctrl+U (hue/saturation) to desaturate and lighten the layer until it is either white, or lightened to your taste.(you may want to make the top layer invisible while you do this) With this layer still selected, activate the Move tool and use your arrows to nudge it out from underneath the top layer until you have the edge as wide as you want it. Then select your eraser tool to erase parts of the edge of this layer so that it is not identical to the top layer. Finally, add a bit of texture to the bottom layer and merge.

This is really tedious. I was looking for a different way to do it, too. Finally, I just bought Cheryl's product and it is a million times easier with that.

HTH! I am sure there are a ton of other ways to do this, but this is the method I used.

No Ooops needed. I have been looking for this for a month now. Everybody talks about it, but I could never find it. Thanks.

Thanks for the complete list. Ill take this list to the craftstore or walmart.

There are lots of brands of ink jet paper that are acid-free, I use Kodak, Avery, HP and even Costco has their own brand. It will say acid-free prominently on the package.

I use several types of glue my favorite liquid glue is Zig Two-way glue by EK Success in the fine tip. I also use Click n' Stick Clear mounting tabs by Therm-O web.
For ribbon I have had the best luck with ZOTS glue dots - from Therm-O Web- the paper thin ones. I don't know if you have Wal-Mart but they are available there as well as craft stores.

I developed this method by reading ScrapGril University material:

Here is my version. I save scrapgirl readme files inside these categories.

1. Brushes
2. Paper
a. cut
b.My paper
c. ScrapGirl Paper
d. other downloaded paper
3. Ding Bat Files (ding bat font downloads used to make brushes)
4. ScrapGirl Templates
5. Embellishments
7. Doddle Files
8. Color Combos
9. Gradients for PS (I also place #1, & 9-13 in my PS presets)
10. Shapes for PS
11. Styles for PS
12. Actions for PS
13. Patterns for PS
15. ScrapGirl Alphas
16. ideas
17. Tutorials
18 Fonts
19 Contests
20 Aritcles
21 Journaling

I then printout a page of the Scrapgirl item from the website so I can locate the page by the URL on the printout. I then file it in a 3 ring binder in the same numbered category as above.

I keep a backup in two places.

And I also keep Kit together until I use it a few times....I am surprised how my mind keeps track of all this stuff too.

In Photoshop CS i use browser to to view....In my PS 6.0, I use Explorer view as thumnails, I also reference my three ring binder the most.
