In the U.S., Presidents' Day honors George Washington, our first president, and Abraham Lincoln, our 12th president.

Digital Scrapbooking Layout by Amy Flanagan
"Grand Canyon" by Amy Flanagan

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

For this layout I started with the #5 template from ScrapSimple Embellishment Templates: Edge Them. The square mask on the far right did not fit my chosen photo very well. Therefore I duplicated the rectangular mask and frame from the left side of the photo and rotated and positioned it on the right side of my layout in the same spot as the original square.

"True Love" by Jennifer Wight

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

When I create a digital scrapbooking layout, I like to make sure all my images are touching and nothing is left floating off by itself. This helps with the general flow of a layout. Also, I "anchor" my photos to the paper by using embellishments. On this page, I used a tape embellishment to help anchor the photos and to add further support with the roses. My photos now look safe and secure on the page.

"So Happy Together" by April Martell

Directions for one technique I did on this layout:

I used Elisha Barnett's ScrapSimple Digital Layout Album Templates: 12x12 Spread Out Mini for this page. These templates include a lot of details like lifted journaling, paper strips, and stitching. To give the stitching a more realistic look, I created a new blank layer under the stitching layer, then I used a small round brush to add holes where the stitching would naturally pierce the paper. Next, I applied Amanda Fraijo-Tobin's ScrapSimple Tools - Styles: Stitching 6401 Mini. Some of the styles in the set are designed for stitches and others are designed for holes, so I applied the appropriate styles to both the hole and stitching layers.
