Finally Friday - A Note of Thanks

Good morning!

Have you ever had to recreate a card because you totally messed it up the first time? Well, that's what happened with this week's Finally Friday card. I think we can all learn a lesson to just slow down because I'm pretty sure the reason why I had to make this card twice is because I was in a hurry. :)

Anyhow, enjoy the video! You can watch it over at YouTube, or below. Thanks for watching! :)

Digital Weekly Challenge: Soda Pop Challenge!

It's time for another fun challenge here at 2Ps and I am so excited to be sharing this one with you all! I just love the design of these soda/juice bottles and the colors are just to die for! Since I loved them so much, I decided to create a mini kit and template for everyone to use just in case you wanted to use the colors from the inspiration as well. And the template is there to help everyone participate. Scrap time seems to running away from me at a rapid pace these days! I hope you like the inspiration and I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

I hope to see many lovely layouts from you all!
You can participate in the challenge HERE and you can pick up the free kit and template HERE.
Thanks for stopping by! Happy scrapping! :)

sketch it out!

happy saturday, peas! it's mooner363 here with this month's Sketch It Out. so i'll stop lolly-gagging and get on with the sketch:

I like to keep things simple (and rather square) :)

here's my version on my sketch:

even though the sketch is for an 8.5x11, i adapted it to a 12x12 layout. i also extended my journaling tag and added the decorative border using a punch.

so go try it out and have a great rest of your weekend!

Finally Friday - Pink/Magenta Butterfly

Good morning, all!

For this week's card, I wanted to try out the Invisables line from Heidi Swapp. This is a pretty cool concept that I saw demonstrated at CHA last January. It reminded me a lot of the emboss resist technique that I've seen done with stamping. Anyway, take a look (I demonstrate it at the beginning of the video) and see how I created a multicolor element for my card. :)

The paper from the line that I used is the 12x12 Border piece--lots of strips of borders. Great for cardmakers! I ordered some of the chipboard that I can't wait to try out, too. The stamped butterfly is from Amy Butler's Lotus Floral stamp set. I think this might be my all time favorite butterfly stamp. I loved it a bit too much! :)

Anyhow, enjoy the video below or over at YouTube. And thank for watching!

User Spotlight: Jenny aka: digiferfer

Hi everyone, Sheri here with this month's spotlight.

I was browsing the gallery last week when this layout by, Jenny (digiferfer) caught my eye. I love everything about it!! What I love most about all her layouts is her layering...she does such an awesome job at having so many different layers!

Here are a few more of my favourites from Jenny's gallery. Isn't he just the sweetest little baby boy! Not only does she have great pictures, but her layouts are beautiful!! So very soft and sweet!

Digital Weekly Challenge Discussion

Hello... Chelsea here!

This weeks challenge is one that I never do without!  To use the curve adjustment layer in photoshop.  First you can find it in Layer> New Adjustment Layer>Curves.  Or here... that red circled part on the right!

This is the graph you see when you open the curves and you simply just push it up at the top to get whiter whites, down a tad at the bottom to deepen your blacks and up a  smidgeon in the middle to pop your greys till it looks good!

So basically is brightens whites, darkens darks and pops your grays.  It's your caffeine for photos!  I think it turns a boring photo into a cool photo.  You  can use curves adjustment on colour and black and white.  With my photo I have chosen to do black and white.  I think it all comes down to experimenting and seeing what you like. 

So here's my Challenge layout.  My photo has been changed to black and white and definitely had the curves adjusted!  I look forward to seeing your layouts...

Technique Discussion - Using Digi-Kit Project Cuts with the Silhouette

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Nichol Magouirk here with a quick Technique Discussion + Tutorial on using the fun Digi-Kit Project Cuts with the Silhouette Digital Craft Cutter. :)

I just love all the fun digi-kits that Jen Allyson and Kristina Werner have created to use with digital die cutting machines.

Here are a few of my favorite digi-kits:

There are even more in the TwoPeas store!

Here's a quick tutorial on creating your own journaling block using the DigiKit Project Cuts Specialty Edges Mats kit with the Silhouette Digital Craft Cutter. These are sized perfectly for cutting and adhering a 4x6 photo or you can do what I did here and create a custom journaling block.

The first thing you want to do is open up a new document in your Craft Robo software. I like to specify an 8 1/2" 12 1/2" size, then click 'OK' to open the new document:

Instead of using images out of 'my library' to import images into your document, you'll want to click the 'open' tab located in your toolbar and shown circled in the screenshot below) and locate where you've saved  your downloaded DigiKit:

Once you've located the file you want to use, make sure and click on the JPG file and click on the image you want for your project:

Once you've located the file you want to use, make sure and click on the JPG file and click on the image you want for your project:

 

Then click the image you will be importing and click 'open'.

This is what the image will look like in your document:

You can change the size of the image a couple of different ways. Here is an easy way I just learned to resize any image in your Craft Robo software. Right click on the image and click 'position settings'.

Make sure the 'hold aspect ration' box is checked so your image doesn't get distorted and then you can change the width or height to suit your project.

Next, in order for the Silhouette to be able to cut the image you will need to convert the JPG image to outline. To do this, click the 'Get Outline' box in the toolbar (shown circled in red).

Click the 'Convert To Outline' box and then click 'Paste then Edit'. Your image will be outlined.

One last thing I always like to do before cutting my image is to to copy it so that the image cuts twice (this is helpful when cutting through thicker materials like double sided patterned paper or cardstock). Click the image, then click 'Copy' in the toolbar and then 'Paste'.

Finally, just follow the normal steps to cut out the shape.

Here is my finished journaling block. I added some stamping and it's ready for my journaling!

Have a great day!

Product Spotlight: Die Cut / Lace Papers

I adore die cut papers. I have a separate envelope where I store all of my papers with pretty edges.

Today, I'm going to highlight a few of the papers for you and show them in action :)

Here's a sheet by Crate Paper:

 

One from K.I. Memories:

 

and one from BasicGrey:

 

and my all-time fav fromK.I.Memories:

 

I love how Kristina used the 'streamers' paper on her mini-album.

 

NAKscrap used it wonderfully on this page

 

and here's the Crate paper in use:

 

page by starlilly_star.  Beautiful!

I hope you enjoyed taking a closer look at die cut papers. I'm inspired! I think I'm going to go look through my envelope and pull out a sheet or two and create a page today!

Have a great day :)

In my Bucket

Hey, there!  Jennifer McGuire here.  I am going to give you a peek into my bucket...


First up, I have several of the new K&Company products that just showed up in the store.  I can see cutting up these cut papers and making lots of cards!

Then I a few things you can always find in my bucket: 6x6 paper pads from Basic Grey.  These are my favorite due to their small scale patterns.  I like them for both cards and scrapbook pages.

And in every order, I have refills for my favorite adhesive.  I couldn't bear to run out of it. :)

I also have been having fun with the Thinking Inking class over on the Education Message Board.  I have been using my Ranger inks so much, that I decided I could use some more foam pieces for my Ink Blending Tool.  Love these.

Have a great weekend!

Finally Friday - True Friends

 

Good morning, all!

This week's card came about because I really wanted to use some more Amy Butler paper. Sort of obsessed with it at the moment. :) Anyway, the patterns are beautiful and I couldn't resist making a card with them. The pinks and reds are gorgeous!

You can watch the video below, or over at YouTube. Enjoy!

Sketch It Out

Hi Everyone!

Tracy Miller here, and my job today is to give you a sketch for a layout. Here's the problem: I don't sketch. Hmm. So I took a different approach when doing this. I do love following other people's sketches and I really like scraplifting, so I went back to one of my previous layouts and made a sketch from it. It's backward - but it works for me!

So, in the spirit of backwardness, here's my layout:

 

And here is the sketch based on my layout:

 

I'd love to see what you create with this sketch! Make sure to link up any layouts you do in the comments.

Weekly Challenge Discussion!

Hello hello!  Jennifer Johner here again today!

Today, the newest weekly challenge went up... 'think angular' ..yep, all about angles!  A little outside the box?  Maybe.. but that it is what is fun about it!  I am usually a 'square' person (ha ha.. no jokes ok? heee!), things don't really need to be cut straight or, placed perfectly straight on my pages.. but I find I usually follow the whole 'straight lines and square' process of thinking.  

Sooooo.. this week, I challenge you to think diagonally.. step outside your box (I know I had too!) and place or cut something diagonally.  You are free to interpret this however you want.. cutting, placing an element, arranging a title... maybe everything on the page.. totally up to you!

Can't wait to see what you come up with!!

Here is my page.. I decided to cut the patterned paper diagonally.  At first, it was one big 12 inch strip along the side.. but then I decided to break it into 2 pieces and place them sort of parallel to each other... different for me definitely!!  But I had fun stepping outside my box and challenging myself.. I hope you do too!!  OR.. maybe you are a scrapper who loooooves placing things diagonally, and this is totally normal for you... bonus!! heee!  Hope you play along either way!!

Have a great Friday!!!!  

Jen :)

Anyhow, enjoy! And thanks for watching. You can catch the video below, or over at YouTube. :)

Sketch It Out!

Morning Peas!  Jennifer Johner here!  Today, I am posting a sketch... I looooove sketches!  I love using them, but I also love sketching my own.. for me, it makes the scrappy process sooo fast... and if I am in the mood for fast, that is a good thing! hee!  Sometimes, I can sit at my desk and come up with nothing.. move things around a million times on my layout... not really feeling the 'mojo'.. sketches help me when I am like that for sure!  They provide a great starting point.  That is the best part.. after they get started, the layouts often take on a life of their own... which is great!

The sketch below, is a pretty simple one.  Lots of room for interpretation.  A matted photo, a line of hearts (or anything really).. title, journaling... and some fun strips of paper.  Thats it!

So easily adaptable to any size as well!  Here is the layout I created from it...

If this sketch inspires you, and you make a layout from it... be sure to link me up ok!?  I would looooooove to see!  Have a great day everyone!!

Jen :)

Photography Weekly Challenge

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a fantastic weekend :)

I'm not a photography buff by any means but I jumped at the chance to play along in this week's challenge. The theme this week is "faces in strange places." Sharing a photo of a face you find in an inanimate object - fun, right? This photo is one I took and shared on my blog a couple of years ago. You can find the full text for the challenge here.

So, let's see your faces! Be sure to click the weekly photography challenge check box to be entered in the drawing for a 2Peas GC.

Have a great week!

User Spotlight: joggemia

 Good Morning Everyone.  Wendy here.  I hope you had a safe and amazing Fourth yesterday.  I had a wonderful spending time with the family having a picnic and ending the night by the campfire in our back yard.  I just love days like that!

So, I am here today with this month’s User Spotlight.  The other day I was going through the member’s gallery and came across some amazing layouts.  They were by:  joggemia.   She is from Sweden and has been a member since April 2007.  I simply love her simple designs and how she uses white space in every layout.  Being a simple scrapper I can relate and was drawn to her gallery immediately!

Here are just a few samples of her work:

 

Du…

I love how she used the torn paper and placed her title in the middle of her page.  I also like how her photo and embellishments are concentrated to the right.  LOVE IT!

 

Love

Now, tell me how cool this layout is!  How she finished the rest of the circle and how she did the flower coming down like that.  And, the colors!  LOVE her color choice J

 

Happiness

I just love this layout too!  I think it’s cool how she placed her title across her photo and patterned paper and I love how she did the date stamp and added an owl for a final touch.  AWESOME! 

 

Here is a link to her gallery:  joggemia

So when you get a minute, take a look!  You won’t be disappointed J

What's In My Bucket

Happy Fourth of July to the Americans out there!  This is Lisa Brown here to share what's currently in my shopping bucket.

I always need cardstock so I have Basic Grey Crisp Designer Cardstock pack and Little Yellow Bicycle Traveller Cardstock pack in my bucket.

I'm also a big fan of letter stickers so I added some Basic Grey stickers (June Bug Elbow, Lemonade Hip Mini, Lemonade Bon Bon Mini, Lime Rickey Thickset).

The 6x6 Bracket Grungeboard mini album looks perfect for a mini album that I am making and I loved the 7gypsies travel charms so I put those in too.

Happy shopping!

Finally Friday - Sending You Love

Good morning, everyone!

This week's card started out with me just wanting to use the giraffe stamp from the Hero Arts Birthday 6x8 stamp set. (I seem to like giraffe's recently, huh?) Anyway, he's super cute and after I stamped him, it looked like he needed a friend, too. So that's when the little bird came into the picture.

So fun!

Enjoy the video below, or you can catch it over at YouTube. Thanks for watching!

New Monthly Garden Theme Discussion

Hello everyone!

It's Robyn Werlich here to discuss the amazing new themed Garden that went up today: all about being INSPIRED by FASHION! I've been so excited to work on this month's Garden - fashion is an amazing industry and there is so much to be inspired by! Colors, textures, patterns, designs, layouts....and so much more! Grab a fashion magazine and look through it one time with a 'scrapbookers' eye - look at colors and all those things that could inspire you in your own designs. Go to fashion websites - check out your favorites and you'll be amazed at how things pop out at you when you are looking at them through a different point of view. Give it a shot - I'm sure you'll be inspired in no time!

I love the 1st of every month and seeing what the amazing Garden Girl team has come up with! This month is no exception - awesome work! Every single page is amazing! Be sure to check them all out!! Here are a few that I wanted to highlight:

I love how Chelsea was inspired by fashion through photography and approached the theme with a different perspective - so beautiful!!

Love how Sheri documented her kids clothes in these photos - beautiful!

How clever is this page!! I love how she made a 'fashion board' out of her own patterned papers - I think she's got a designer on her hands! :) This is such a fun clever idea!

I love this page by Rhonda and how she used her own closet as inspiration - also documenting something about herself that her kids will love to know about her. A few other GG's did layouts about items in their closet and clothes - can you spot them?

This page by Shannon Tidwell is so cute...using an actual fashion piece of clothing that she loves on her page! What a great way to preserve that piece and to keep that memory alive for years to come! Her daughter will love this when she is older! So cute!

This page by Jen Gallacher is awesome - digi (way to go friend) and I love how she used fashion 'papers' as her inspiration for this theme. Great idea!

And here is one of mine...inspired by some cute ruffle shirts at Jcrew.com. Using websites for inspiration is fast and free!

As you can see by these examples, there are numerous ways to be inspired by fashion! So many different ways! I hope that you'll give 'fashion' a try for inspiration this month! I think you'll love it!

This week's DIGI CHALLENGE!

 Hi! Sande Krieger here with this week's Digi Challenge.

This weeks challenge is to take two or more photos and blend them to make one image.

My nephew James is on the track team at Utah State Univ. I took 3 photos of him starting the 800 which I then blended into one photo. It helps that I was standing in the same spot for all 3 photos and just pivoting my upper body as I shot each photo. That way all the photos had similar backgrounds and angles.

To do this I followed these steps:

  1. Crop all 3 photos the same size - in this case 4x6.
  2. Open a new document 4x12 (I later cropped it to a 4x8).
  3. Drag all the photos onto the new document and line them up so that the sequence of how I wanted the finished photo to be was correct. You can change the opacity of each photo if that helps to line them up.
  4. Use a mask to erase parts of each photo (if you're using PSE you can do this with an eraser). Use a soft round brush at about 50% opacity to soften the transitions between photos.

There are several ways to blend photos together and this is just one method. If you're using PS or PSE you can use the blending modes to achieve a really interesting collage effect. 

I'm excited to see what you do with this challenge! Remember when you upload your layout into the gallery to click the box that says "Weekly Digital Challenge!"
