Digital Scrapbooking Layout by Jennifer Wight
"Snow Much Fun" by Jennifer Wight
larger view

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

I love photo clusters and photo masks, but what happens when you want to use a particular photo cluster and don't have enough pictures to fill each frame? Why not try clipping patterned paper to the extra frames as I have done here? Pattern paper can add such fun and flavor to any layout. Who says every frame needs a photo behind it?

"Sno-Blasters" by April Martell

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

I created a custom title for my page using text and paper. First, I typed the title using the Text Tool. I chose the text color from the snowflake banner using the Color Picker Tool so it matched perfectly. I added a subtle snowflake pattern to the title by clipping a piece of the same snowflake paper I used for the background over the title layer and changing the Blending Mode to "Linear Burn."

Digital Scrapbooking Layout by Amy Flanagan
"Mommy! Get Out of the Way!" by Amy Flanagan
larger view

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

To make the snowflake in the center of the layout, I stamped a snowflake from Brush Set: Little Red Bird onto my layout. Then I selected a paper from Crazy Retro Day Collection Biggie. I placed the paper on the layer above the brush layer. With the paper layer highlighted, I clipped the paper to the brush layer by hitting Ctrl+Alt+G on the keyboard. Then I added a drop shadow to the brush layer, and voila, I have a coordinated snowflake for my layout. The same technique was used on the swirl.

January's Forum Game: Jumpstart January!

It's time to kick off the new year with some fun and a focus on scrapbooking! Join us on Scrap Girls Forum for "Jumpstart January!" This is a game and challenge that focuses on taking time to scrapbook regularly despite the little "speedbumps" of life. When the month is over you'll have completed several layouts and been treated to some fun along the way.

A Welcoming Committee Member will post a task each Monday through Saturday from January 1-31. The tasks will be formatted in a LARGE PURPLE FONT for ease of locating them in the game thread as it grows. Some tasks will require message board participation, email responses or gallery posting. Read each daily task carefully to see what is required of you.

Those who complete all the required tasks and submit or post required participation by 11:59 pm (ET) January 31st will be entered in a drawing to win one of three $10 Gift Certificates to the Scrap Girls Boutique! Those who complete all the layouts will be entered in a drawing to win one of two $5 gift certificates. Each person who completes a layout will be entered – once for each completed challenge page - into a drawing for one of three $3 gift certificates.

For complete details, visit the Monthly Forum Games folder on the Scrap Girls Forum.
