What Scrappers Like

I recently asked the scrappers on my newsletter list what they like and what they would like to see.  The responses varied greatly and were very inspiring to me.  There were many things I hadn’t thought of, simply because on my life and the way I scrap, so it was eye opening to hear about what other scrappers like and what would be useful to them!

One scrapper told me about her method of scrapping letter size {8.5×11}.  I have never in the 10+ years I have been scrapping, made a letter size layout!!!  What??  I thought I better try it!  I love the result and I can tell I will continue to try the size.  One of her motivations for scrapping this size was the ability to print her layouts out at home.  What I see after trying it, is that there is not so much space to fill up.  I have always loved large photos and right away when I added my photo I knew I wanted it to be the focal point.  I am thinking another bonus would be easier to handle albums.  The big 12×12 albums are heavy and pretty big to put on your lap to look through.  Anyway it was a fun new thing for me to try!  I made a layered template out of my layout if you would like to give letter size scrapping a try, with a jumping off point!

Another scrapper told me about the hard time she was having finding a Color Guard/Marching Band kit to scrap her daughter’s photos with.  I started to research the Color Guard sport a bit, and found it to be really cool!  We don’t have anything like that in Canada (that I know of) and I thought it would be fun to try and make a kit.  I ended up going with a Traditional/Artsy type look and I think it worked out great.  On her advice I kept the colors neutral (gold, silver, black & white) and a scrapper could add pops of color with other kits to represent their school/team colors!

You can find the kit, stamps, clusters and quickpages for Color Guard at Studio Rosey Posey.

Doodling and Photoshop

Tonight I sat down to fiddle around in Photoshop and just doodle and see what came up!  I sometimes just like to have nothing in mind or maybe a quote or small idea and see how it grows.  I ended up making this girl and she is living with her Whole HEART!  YAY her!  Such a great intention to have!

I thought some of you may like her to add to your art journal pages or collage pages.  You can click HERE to download her in .PNG format.  She is about 6″x6″ @300 dpi.

Download is for your personal use only in your artwork.
