Thursday Tutorials: Changing Background Paper into Shapes

by

Hi there! Melissa T. is here to bring you another Thursday Tutorial. This week, we will be discussing how to turn background papers into mats, frames, and other shapes. Sometimes, you will find that you have used a picture, but the embellishments are too busy for use in your layout. Sometimes, you will want to add a little something special to your layout, but you do not want to distract from the picture inside it. And sometimes, you will decide that the coordinating background papers are too beautiful not to incorporate into your layout. In all of these instances, changing a background paper into a mat, frame, or shape is just the skill you need in your bag of digital scrapbooking tricks to make your layout really “pop.”
Once again, Lisa J. from MyMemories has created a video and a PDF demonstrating just how to do this in your MyMemories Software. If you currently do not own this #1 rated digital scrabooking suite, then I highly recommend buying it. You may find a coupon for $10 off the Suite on the right hand side of the page. However, if you choose to create a shape from an “Outside Content” digital software pack, then you must import the paper as a picture. Once it has been imported into your software, you may then select the “Photos” tab on the left hand side of the program, then press the “shape” button.  The MyMemories Suite V3 offers a wide varied of shapes from which to choose ranging from three sizes of circles to diamonds, hearts, and frames.

I personally use this feature all of the time, but it is not necessary to use it only for background paper. Any picture may be formed into a shape other than a square. To supply a sample for you, I have created a page using Sugar Moon’s “April Showers” Mini Kit. This kit will be made available later this week at her shop at With Love Studio. The coordinating Alphabet may be found on Missy’s Bits Facebook Fan page under the “Exclusive” tab. This is a beautiful example of a free kit that you will use as “Outside Content” with the MyMemories Suite V3.

Enjoy the Freebie, make a memory, and be sure to have a camera on hand!

We also want to mention that today is the last day for 15% off over at Mymemories! Make sure to stop by and get your savings today!

Coming Soon….Facebook HOP

by

Hi, Shanna here with your weekly Friday Finds. This week has been a very busy week for me. I’ve had so much going on in my life this week and just getting back into a routine after last week being our Spring Break. Anyway, enough about me. I just wanted to let everyone know that next week will be another very busy week for the designers over at With Love Studio. If you haven’t visited there shop and forums you should because it’s a great place with a lot of great designer’s including our very own Sugar Moon Designs. The reason I’m mentioning With Love Studio is because starting next week a lot of exciting new changes are being made to their site as they “grow” into a new server. But never fear, although they will be temporarily closed {for about a week starting March 26th} the great designers over there are having a Facebook Hop and offering a FREE collab kit on each of their Facebook Fan Pages. So starting Monday, March 26th you can go to each of the designer’s Facebook Fan page and “LIKE” them {if you haven’t already} and pick up each piece of this amazing collab kit entitled “April Showers”. And did I mention it is FREE!!! So what are you waiting for click on the links below to go to each participating designer’s Facebook Fan page and “LIKE” them TODAY!

Wacky for Facebook Banners-Challenge!!

by

Hi, Shanna here with your Wacky for Wednesday blog post. This month we’ll feature games, challenges, and such to help with inspiration you may need to get you going on your scrapping adventures. This week I wanted to feature a challenge one of our bloggers, Dawn, posted on her personal blog last week about making Facebook timeline banners in the MyMemories software.

” I wanted to share how to create one using my memories software. When you first open your My Memories Software you will select “design your own” for album. Then select the landscape option, and change the size to 850 pixels by 315 pixels.  It will look like this.

Once you have selected the size, you can then place in the background papers, elements and photos just as you would with any normal layout. “
Reposted from Dawn’s Delights Art (to read the entire blog click here)

If you don’t own MyMemories, you can purchase at their website by clicking the icon on the right side of our blog and be sure to use the $10 off coupon code posted here on our blog to get your discount and your free RAKstar membership through March 31st.

Now if you like to use Photoshop or another program, creating a Facebook timeline banner would be very similar to what Dawn described here in her blog. You would just want to open up your program and be sure to choose the 850 pixels by 315 pixel dimensions to start your banner layout. Or if you’d rather work with a template that has been created in PSD file format here is a good one on DeviantArt that I found.

So for this week’s challenge I challenge all of you to go and design yourself a new facebook timeline banner to reflect your style as an artist and then link back here with your profile page link so we can see your work.

Here is my latest Facebook Banner, I made using Sugar Moon’s Lillypads and Lightning Bugs  and
Missy’s Bits Mint Plum & Garden Whimsy for the name graphic seen on the banner

Thursday Trends: Pinterest

by

Hi, there all of you readers in Blog Land.  My name is Melissa, and I am a new blogger for http://www.creativeartistry.com.  You can eagerly await my posts every Thursday when I will be bringing you tips, trends, tutorials, and even a speed scrap or two.   To start, my muse and I would like to send you a little digital inspiration.  I don’t know how many of you have viewed your own Facebook profiles or read the feeds of your many friends lately, but http://www.pinterest.com seems to be the next “Big Thing” when it comes to the world wide web.  I have had my own Pinterest page for several months now, but recently, I am finding that all types of companies (even digital scrapbook artists) are using Pinterest as a way of publicizing their own materials, coordinating ideas and color swatches, and determining how many “likes” each “pin” may have before coming out with new products.  Unfortunately, not all of us are designers, but I have decided that all of us have a use for http://www.pinterest.com.

So you may be asking, “Melissa, what does this mean for me?”  Well, I will tell you: if you are anything like I am, you probably have Vision Boards, Creativity Shrines, French Memo Boards, or even just a scrapbook of goodies you would like to purchase for yourself filled with the rather unsightly push pins of blue and yellow (or in my case, several cork boards filled with staples.)  Pinterest allows you to create numerous digital boards where you can store those ideas/ pictures that you find anywhere on the web all in one place.  Your friends or “Followers” can see your pins, comment, like, and repin.  Right now, I have 9 boards ranging from clothing I want to own, recipes I wish to try,  personal retreats, art I love, and innovative ways to revamp my herb garden.  The possibilities are as wide and varied as your imagination allows.

So, for Thursday’s Tip/ Trend, I would like you all to flood the proverbial gates of Pinterest and create at least 3 boards of your own.  Be sure to grab the  “Pin It” Button under “Goodies/About” which will allow you to pin any picture on any webpage directly to your own Pinterest boards from your own bookmark toolbar.  And who knows, maybe by the end of the week, you will be able to find a link on our own blog to Pinterest.
