Weekly Digital Challenge

 Hi Peas!

Sande Krieger here with your weekly Digital Challenge. This weeks challenge is to use Hue/Saturation.  You can make changes in your photos, your patterned or solid papers or any embellishment. The field is wide open!  There are some screen shots with an explanation on the challenge layout and you can view a video demonstration here on how to use Hue/Saturation if you use Photoshop Elements. 

I'm excited to see what you create!

1 Product 3 Ways

Good morning peas! It's Jen Martakis here. :)

 

Today I am showcasing Jen Allyson's Spot Color Journal Fill-In Stamps. They are fun, amazing and so versatile!

 

First of all, I have to explain to you that I am a post-it note junkie. Seriously, at any given time you can find half a dozen little square notes stuck randomly to my work area. Well, I decided that maybe I should give a to-do list a try instead of having to search through all of my individual reminders. Here's what I came up with - it's printable and so much better than the chaotic system I had been using.

 

Next, I had the idea to create flash cards for my 2 year old. These are simple, colorful, printable and so much fun. I plan on laminating them so that they hold up to my toddlers rough handling. ;)

 

 

 

And last but not least I used one in a layout as my journaling block. It's the perfect little extra to complete the page and bring everything together. (Other Supplies used : Erica Hernandez Letter Template No. 1, Betsy Tuma - Happy Go Lucky - Bliss, Meredith Fenwick - Roughed Up Alpha.)

 

 

I hope everyone has a fantastic day!

Weekly Challenge: Journal Over a Photo

Hello!  This is Lisa Brown here with this week's challenge to journal over a photo.  You can try adding your journaling to a photo digitally with a font before printing or use a marker to write directly on the photo like I did with my layout.  I can't wait to see what everyone creates!

Hi all! For this week's Finally Friday video and challenge, I decided to use a larger stamp and then alter it with a white gel pen. A lot of times, large stamps can almost seem like "one hit wonders." They are hard to use past their straight forward look. But you can alter them and make them so much more!

So, that's what this week's challenge is...

CHALLENGE: Use a larger stamp on a card and alter it in some way. For example, color it will markers, cut it out, add detail with a pen, etc... Look at your stamp in a new way! Just create a project and upload it to the TwoPeas gallery. Then it will appear at the bottom of the Finally Friday page for this week! :)

Sketch It Out!

 

Good morning, Peas! 
Rebecca Trump, here, this lovely autumn morning.
I'm here this morning to bring you a fun and simple sketch for a card or layout.  I chose to make a card using this American Crafts Sentiment stamp (which I LOVE!), but you could also insert a small photo there, and then adhere the card size layout to a blank sheet of cardstock for a simple and bold looking layout.

Going along with the "wish you were here" sentiment, I chose to use these Anna Griffin Sea papers - as it makes me think of beach vacations, and wishing a friend or loved one where there to enjoy it with me.  Also, the kraft block for the stamp is just a piece of cardboard, but I thought it kind of resembled sand so I thought it was perfect for this theme card :)

Thanks for checking things out this morning, and have fun with this sketch!!!

Weekly Digi Challenge: Greeting Card as Inspiration

Good morning Peas, Sheri Horton here with this weeks digi challenge! If you're like me and LOVE to give and receive greeting cards, then this weeks challenge will be LOTS of fun for you!

This weeks challenge is to be inspired by a greeting card!! It can the colours used, the overall design or just simply the words! Whatever it is that inspires you from that one little card! 

I have been saving my cards for years!! I even started a filing system for them!! So when this challenge came up I went and looked through the 100's of cards I have kept. It was within those that I found a baby shower card that was given to me for the birth of my first daughter.

This is what I came up with. To see the card I used for inspiration and to read a bit more about my process, check out this weeks challenge.  I can't wait to see what you come up with!

User Spotlight: blue_eyed_pea

Ugh! I meant to post yesterday but grocery shopping football and yardwork ruled the day and my mind totally blanked. I was excited to spotlight a user though so it was the first thing on my to-do list once I got the boys off to school!

Take a stroll through Esther's gallery and you'll find some amazing digital artwork. This first layout is one of her most recent uploads. I absolutely adore how she used her daughter's sketch as an embellishment at the bottom of the layout!

Check out the gorgeous blending on this layout - gorgeous colors as well and I love the soft text in the background!

I really like how she showcased this sweet daddy-daughter moment. Great design, great colors, great embellishment choices!

How fun is this collage? So bright and cheerful and a fabulous way to work a lot of photos in in an eye pleasing way!

I think you get the idea, right? I adore Esther's stuff - you really need to check out her entire gallery to see for yourself! Have a great Monday and a great week.

Photography Challenge: Secret Hideouts


Chelsea Parson's challenge "Secret Hideouts" made me want to want to grab my camera and get some pictures. Unfortunately, my girls aren't all cute and little and fitting into tight spaces anymore. They used to:

She looks so sweet and little there!

But, I think my favorite hideout photos are when kids hide in plain sight:

 

This is my friend's daughter. I think she really thinks we can't see her when she does that.

I think now that my girls are older, their hiding place is their bedrooms. Unfortunately, I couldn't sneak up on them hiding there. So, picture this room space, only with tons of Webkinz and a little girl reading in the middle of it:

 

Have fun with this challenge! Can't wait to see what you do!

Tips & Tricks

Organizational Tip: Digital Photos

Hi everyone! Amy here.  I struggled with coming up with an organizational tip, because anyone who has seen my scrapbook room can testify to the disaster that it is. However, the one place I am pretty organized is my computer. Go figure - the one place you can't see. lol I like to keep my photos very organized so that they are easy to find at a moment's notice. In the screen shots below, You'll see the system I use for organizing my photos. It works great for me and hope that maybe it will help you in organizing your own or inspire you to come up with your own system that will work for you.

Finally Friday - Smile

 

For this week's Finally Friday card I needed something quick and easy and I also wanted to use another digital die cut kit. Jen Allyson's Cut-Out Card was perfect! Not only was it easy to use, but after it was cut, it only took 6 minutes to put together. Sweet! I also use some patterned paper from Sassafras' Monstrosity 6x6 pad.

THIS WEEK'S CHALLENGE: Make a card with a window. I used a digital cutter to create mine, but you could try using a punch or a circle cutter--anything to create a "hole" in the front of your card. When you card is finished, upload a picture of it to the TwoPeas gallery and select this week's FF video when you do. Then your card will appear at the bottom of the FF video page. :)

Enjoy the video below, or over at YouTube. Thanks for watching!

Digital Challenge Discussion - Enhance the Edges of a Photo

Hi Peas!!

This week's digital challenge is to enhance the edges of a photo!

You can go about this in a couple of ways. I chose to add a grungy brush to the edges of my photos. I love the grunge/painted edge look, and I love that by using Mary Ann Wise's Grungy Edges brush, I can do that with no mess! You can also create a clipping mask with a decorative edge (such as scallops or pinked edges)., and add that to your photo. You can also use a different edge brush, or even do something else - be creative and have fun!!

--Caroline

Seasonal Theme Discussion : FALL

Hey, Peas! Gennifer here today, with a look at the new seeds blooming in The Garden.

What does 'Fall" mean to you? For me, Fall is many things: The crisp, cool air. The Honeycrisp apples. The spicy candles I break out all through my house. Even the anticipation for my favorite holiday, Halloween, and my birthday coming up. (Actually, I'm getting old enough that my birthday is beginning to loom.)

In this layout by Cindy, she took a traditional Thanksgiving Day picture and made it spectacular! I love the addition of the dusty blue with the oranges and crimsons... just gorgeous!

 

Is football your favorite Fall tradition? Check out this layout by Tia, full of texture-y goodness! Yum!

 

We've all played in the leaves, right? (Okay, well maybe I just take pictures while everyone else gets to play.) Either way, Kelli made these photos really pop, by using bright red and apple green with black, for a super dramatic, super fun layout.

 

One of my favorite things about Fall is breaking out the sweaters. Or buying new! :) Jennifer made this layout of her daughter in one of her new outfits, and it's chuck-full of color and whimsy. Love that weensy clothesline!

 

Maybe, if you're super fabulous like Caroline, you won't buy your new sweaters, you'll make them!  As she shows with this gorgeous layout, Fall is the perfect time to work on projects!

 

Or, maybe you're like Chelsea, living Down Under? It's not Fall there, so she made this clever layout of her daughter at the pool. Precarious, for sure... please don't fall, sweet girl!

 

There's plenty of inspiration in The Designer Garden this week, so check it out! And when you're working on your next layout, I encourage you to think about what 'Fall' means to you!

Photography Weekly Challenge

Good Morning Everyone!  Have  you been over to the Photography board yet to see this week's challenge?  If not, you should go check it out!

This week, Chelsea brings us a fun challenge that is pretty broad,  People, Places and /or Things.  

She has added some AMAZING photos of a wedding that she just had the opportunity to shoot that are Incredible!

Have fun with this one.  Let's see all your favorite photos of your favorite people, places you have gone or things that are maybe just laying around your house or out an about.

Here is one of my favorite photos I just took the other day.  It's of my father coaching.  I am so proud of him and excited that he has stepped back into coaching softball and at the college level!

I recently took this photo with my daughter's Canon Powershot SD 870IS.  I just bought a new lens for my Canon Digital Rebel and was SO EXCITED to use it... when I got to the game... I realized I did not have my memory card!  haha  So, I use this camera.  Hannah wasn't happy that I kept taking her camera. :) :)  But anyway, I took this and was happy that I got both coaches interacting with the girls at the same time. (By the way, the one their first 2 games, 4-3 and 16-4!!!)

 

I can't wait to see what you all come up with, have a great day!

Wendy

what's in my bucket...

good morning, peas.  it's brooke here to show you what's in my bucket.  and what is in my bucket these days?  a christmas mini album that i'm currently envisioning.  nothing like getting an early start!  here are a few things that will be making an appearance...

making memories and 7gypsies -- a match made in heaven.  i think i'll use the three items above to create the pages of my album.

(i love striped paper for mini-albums... makes cutting pieces so much easier!)

(and i love double-sided paper like this... again -- PERFECT for minis!)

i'll use these papers (and the rest in the collection!) to add to each page in the mini.

these are one of my go-to scrapbooking products.  stocking up now!

i've never used wordfetti but feel like this mini might be a perfect time to start.  in my bucket these go!

and journaling circles.  perfection.

these are the things in my bucket this sunday.  what's in yours?  can't wait to play with these things!

thanks for reading.  have a happy day!

*brooke

(product details are listed below!)

Sketch it out!

Happy Saturday!  It's Shimelle here and I have a sketch-it-out challenge for you!  Use a digital template as the sketch for your layout! 

We're using Scrap Canvas 13 by The Queen of Quirk as our sketch today.  Here are three digital pages made with that template - the first by Jen Martikis and the second two by yours truly.

Now obviously, it's super fast and easy for digital scrappers to use this template to make their page in a flash, but how about using it for a paper layout?

Either...

*make a hybrid layout by adding photos to the template, printing it out and adding it to a 12x12 paper page, with as much embellishment as you like, OR

*use the template design as a sketch and let it guide your placement of blocks of patterned paper and photos on your all-paper page.

Make sure to leave a comment here when you upload your pages so we can see everything made from the same starting point.  Happy scrapping!

Technique Discussion: Embellish with rub ons

Hello peas!  it’s Liana here.

I’m going to talk about my favorite technique rub ons. I love rub ons, I can use it over and over on my projects. It’s fun and easy to use. It makes sweet and simple embellishments. You can use it on top of photos (for digital look) or just overlap it. Jazz up with some brads, flowers, or jewels, you good to go.

My samples using rub ons to warm up the page. Basically I used this rub on from little yellow bicycle.
 
Supplies:
Pattern paper: Little yellow bicycle
Brad: Little yellow bicycle
Mini Brad: KI memories
Jewel/Pearl: Little yellow bicycle
Cardstock sticker: Little yellow bicycle
Rub ons: Little yellow bicycle
Glitter glue: Stickles
Jewel: Bo bunny Press
Paper flower: Prima Marketing
Adhesive Foam: Martha Stewart

 

 

I love the way Rebecca used this cute owl rub ons on her top right corner, so darling cute!!!

So don't wait any longer, start playing around with your rub ons.

Have a great day everyone!

Liana

Photography Challenge Discussion! There is Beauty ALL AROUND!

 Hello Peas!

It is Jen Johner here today.. to talk about this weeks Photography Challenge!  The title of the challenge is 'There is Beauty All Around'.. so I suppose it is up to you how you interpret that. :)

Here is my interpretation..

 

I chose to take it a step past the 'obvious' beauty.. I went to a trash pile. hee heeee!  I found this cool old Sunrype can!  All rusted out, and really not all that pretty! lol  But I found the colours beautiful.  At the time, I was (well, ok I still am) obsessed with the colour combo of turquoise, yellow and lime green.  The colours of my house decor! heee!  So, I snapped a pic.  Not too sure what I would do with it, if anything at all.

But I am thinking it would be really cool framed and hung in my kitchen somewhere.. maybe with an arrangement of other pictures... so it is not the feature, but more of an accent photo.  Hung purely for it's pop of colour!  ..and the grunginess is kinda growing on me too! lol

So, this week, I challenge you to take out your cameras and look for something beautiful!  Obvious or not so obvious.. you decide how challenging you want to be!  I too hope to get out this week and play along as well!  Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!!  SO fun!  

Enjoy!

Jen :)

Organization: Stamps

Hello Everyone. I hope you're having a nice weekend.

Today I'm going to show you how I organize my mass of stamps.

I wish I had a spot to display my favorite stamps like a ledge or shelf, but that doesn't work for my space. I also love the idea of having a tiered basket on my desk, like I've seen lots of you do, but I haven't  found one that I love yet.

Like several of my other supplies (letter stickers & rub-ons), I like to be able to 'flip' through my supplies to see what I have. In this first picture (which is inside a drawer), you can see, I have my acrylic stamps in a blue box and I just kind of leaf through them until I see what I need. I keep my stamps in their original packaging if possible. Occasionally, I use these Tim Holtz pockets .

This is a photo of my teeny acrylic stamps. They're just filed into a small plastic container.

 

The next drawer over has my acrylic blocks, stamp cleaners and wood mounted stamps. I have the stamps in clear plastic art boxes. I am ashamed to admit, I rarely dig through these.

 My last stamp drawer contains oversized acrylic stamps and my stamp pads.

 

Thanks for touring my stamp drawers with me.

Stacey :)

User Spotlight: Evangelina

Hi!  Shannon Tidwell here today.   I was browsing through the Gallery  this morning wondering who I would spotlight when I came across this fabulous layout by Evangelina....

 

The balloons immediately caught my eye. Love all the layers and the texture...yummy paper at it's best!!  

 

And since I have a house full of lil' monsters myself, this one spoke to me....

 

 

And check this one out!  Again, layers and depth...oohh I love it!!

 

So, If you haven't checked out Evangelina's work yet...I suggest you do.  You won't be disappointed!  I think I'm going to go layer some papers now!

Finally Friday - Let's Go A Haunting

Wow, can you believe Halloween is creeping up soon?! The summer has just flown by and it's nearly autumn and time to figure out our Halloween costumes.

This is my first Halloween card for this year and it was super easy to make. I used Cosmo Cricket's Haunted collection (check out the adorable skeleton stickers!).

Anyhow, you can watch the video below, or over at YouTube. Thanks for watching!

In My Bucket

Hi peas, Moon here with today's: What's in My Bucket. Well, if you must know, I have two weaknesses when it comes to scrapping...chipboard and patterned papers. Here are my most recent purchases:

First these:

The bird chipboards from Maya Road. They are currently on sale so I bought 5 of them. I thought I could use these for tags on presents or gift bags when Christmas comes around. Then I had to have these as well...

Cupcakes and birds and snowflakes...

Speaking of snowflakes, I nabbed these up as well...

The Jolly by Golly mini deck and a sheet of paper from BoBunny.

And then lastly, these just went with everything else I needed:

 

Earth Love Chips, Jolly by Golly , Colorful striped paper, and Monkey bars paper.

A smallish bucket for me but the items i ordered seemed to have quieted my soul for the moment.

:)

Digital Weekly Challenge: Filters

 

Good Morning, Peas!  This is Tia with a challenge for you.
 
This week's digital challenge is all about FILTERS!
 
 
Your challenge this week, should you choose to accept it, is to create a dynamic effect on your page utilizing the Filters option in your editing program.
 
I chose to keep the filters focused on my photo.   I first used a grain filter to give the photo some grunge, and then I applied some dramatic Lighting Effects. 
 
Have some fun with your Filters Menu this week and see what drama you can create!  Check out the Challenge Page in the Digi Weekly Challenge area to see more details about the kind of filters I used.
 
When finished with your page, simply upload to the gallery and Check-Mark the "Digi Weekly Challenge: Filters" option in the challenge section of your upload process.

Monthly Theme Discussion

Good morning! Jen Gallacher here. Your friendly neighborhood GG here to report on the VERY awesome monthly theme of "Found Objects." Hmmm. Makes your mind start to race doesn't it? I thought it would be fun to share some of the very cool ideas by the Garden Girls today.

How about this darling layout from Erica? Who wouldn't thrill to a love note from a child?

And Laura Kurz and I had the same idea. Use a hospital bracelet on a layout. Mine was about my son's broken arn. Her's is about her son's birth.

 

And Jamie Waters had the brilliant idea to include an awesome cleaning list from a magazine on her layout.

There really are just a million things you can include on your layouts from the objects you find in your everyday life. Be sure to include them in your personal story!!
