Tips From The Pros

Combining Layout Templates and Super 7 Spreads

Article written using Adobe Photoshop CS6 with Windows 7

Do you have a backlog of photos you're trying to get scrapped? Are you, like me, still scrapping photos from the last century? If so, you're not alone! In this tutorial, we will use a layout template and a Super 7 Spread to make a fast and unique two-paged layout with lots of photos.

First, open a layout template. I used Cheri Thieleke's ScrapSimple Digital Layout Album Templates: 12x12 Line Em Up which is a two-paged template with spaces for multiple photos. Next, arrange your photos in the template. Don't be afraid to switch up the template to make it work for you. I swapped the right and left sides. My photos didn't always match the orientation of those on the template, so I moved, rotated, and enlarged individual template pieces to make them work better with my photos. It doesn't look too pretty yet, but here is what my page looks like at this point. I've shown my photo placement over the layout template pieces so you can see what I changed.

Digital Scrapbooking Tutorial: Rearrange the layers of a layout template for a new look.

When all your photos are in place, find a Super 7 Spread that works well with them. I chose Syndee Nuckles' Super 7 Spread: Winter's Child. These pages come ready to use as a two-page layout, but they also include the individual embellishments and papers. Now you simply add the papers and embellishments included in the set, arranging them to work with the layout template you've chosen. You can use them in their original groupings or mix them up to fit your page.

To finish up my page, I pulled a few extra embellishments from my digital scrapbooking stash.

This layout came together quickly, which is something I really need when I am working on my Christmas photos from 1999! If you want to speed up your scrapping, try this technique to get more scrapbook pages finished in less time.

Join April (April Showers) each Wednesday at 12 Noon ET for the High Noon Crop. All coasts and time zones are welcome! These crops are designed to allow you to work on your own photos and themes, simply giving participants a one hour goal and a fun, new challenge each week.

On January 30th, we'll do a Photo Manipulation Challenge! Create a layout using a photo you have manipulated in some way - change it to black and white or sepia, remove a distraction, cut out the subject - anything goes!

Create your layout and upload it to the special High Noon Crop Gallery. You'll be amazed what you can get done in just one hour, but there is no High Noon Sheriff timing you! Hope to see you in the chat room!

Games

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.
