Tuesday - Digital Scrapbooking projects Part 2

0
Carolyn here sharing what I have been playing around with - digital scrapbooking and Easy Pocket Scrapbooking . 

Easy Pocket Scrapbooking - easy to create your digital photos into what looks like pocket pages, pretty much like using plastic pages and inserting the actual photo into.  It's a way of saving photos on a flash-drive and than digitally create and not have a drawer/box full of photos as I do!

Easy Pocket Page Scrapbook (digital)
Back to School Apple Title from misskatecuttables (I believe)
I used Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 for creating both scrapbook layouts; and have a file from MyMemories Suite and from Pixel Scrapper Digital Scrapbooking that are clear plastic pockets for easy pocket scrapbooking, in place of the actual pockets.  I placed the photos, elements and journal cards in my layout just like a actual plastic pocket layout, only digital.  Love it. 
I do have a School House Mini-album that I am creating, using the School House Cut File and will share that later. You can read the full details of this post at my blog:  Granny Ma's Creative Blog.


Hope you have a blessed day and thanks for stopping by,

Carolyn

Easy Pocket Scrapbook Part 1

0

Hi, Carolyn here with what I am calling Digital/Easy Pocket Scrapbooking Part 1; but this is a version of pocket scrap booking, done digitally...



This past June, as a final day of enjoying El Paso, Texas we went to the El Paso Zoo for a few hours and enjoyed the fun time, but not the heat.  I was sooo hot, it was unbearable but here is three layouts using clear plastic pockets from Pixel Scrapper Digital Scrapbooking and MyMemoriesSuite, or if you like the traditional way of scrapbooking, the plastic sleeves are available (I purchased mine thru HSN.com).

The giraffe in third layout is a clipart located in a Internet search and Fun Day at the Zoo and Zoo Fun titles from misskatecuttables.com  as svg cut files.  (you group together and than print and cut in your Silhouette Cameo to create a sticker and apply it on the layout.

I hope your enjoyed today's project too. If you have a questions or suggestions, please leave it in the comments. Also, you can join up to our Facebook group: Scrapbook Blessings Club for more fun, games, inspiration, tips and techniques.
 
Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day!

Thursday's Throwback project: Happy Halloween

0
Hi friends!  Sandy here for ScrapBook Blessings Club to share with you a favorite SBC Throwback Thursday project...

Here are some of the projects I did for Halloween in past years. I was addicted to my Cricut at the time, lol...

The first one is: The gift bag was made using the cut from Accent Essentials Cartridge and end caps feature for the handle from Plantin SchoolBook cartridge.
************************************************

The banners were made using the Plantin SchoolBook cartridge, and ribbon. I punched two holes in each card and threaded the ribbon through the back. The pumpkins are 5 ovals cut to 3" and layered over lapping. I drew the faces on with a black sharpie marker.
*************************************************
I just had to show these pumpkins off. I made these for my hubby when we were dating for his apartment. I bought the ceramic from the local ceramic shop. And using my scrap book chalks, I "colored" the piece and then used a couple coats of craft sealant to give it a nice gloss. Very easy to do!
************************************************

I made this door banner for a friend who loooves Halloween. This was very easy to make. I used three different kinds of paper. The first layer (brown outline) I cut at 3.75", second layer at 3.50". The third layer was a little bit of cheating. I had a paper that had the Halloween words on it and all I did was cut out the words and glue them on. The pumpkins are made with using the ovals again. 


I was very limited because all I had were the Plantin and Accent cartridges so I used the lower case o from the Plantin and cut it in half for the stem.

Ahh, the good old days! Now I have over 70 cartridges and I still use these two, lol.

Here is what the Scrapbook Blessings Club Design Team created:


Carolyn


TiP:  Make sure to clean your transparency of any dust or lint before putting your card together.

Sandy- A Working Moms Joy

My tip: place a strip of paper on the inside of the foam tape to stop your beads from sticking to it.

Brenda - Disney Girl
My Tip:  When cutting foam core always use a fresh blade. It makes it so much easier.

Jolly Santa Candle saying HoHoHo

0

Hi Carolyn here with a Christmas candle I created a year or so ago using a Ho Ho Ho file with Santa.


TIP:  take your time with the heat gun on this project - don't want to melt the wax candle too much. And makes a neat little decoration at Christmas time or for a gift.

A couple years ago, really can't remember when I created this for a design team project but I had viewed a youtube video on creating a candle with tissue paper.  I used white tissue and printed Santa and title and than got out the heat gun and applied the tissue paper to a white candle that I purchased at Wal-mart.  And wrapped a ribbon around the bottom of candle, and placed on a little clear plate for display at Christmas time.

Here is a video tutorial by Heidi Swapp showing the techniques for this project...


I hope your enjoyed today's project too. If you have a questions or suggestions, please leave it in the comments. Also, you can join up to our Facebook group: Scrapbook Blessings Club for more fun, games, inspiration, tips and techniques. Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day!
