Project Summer Scrapbook

By creativeteam

Good Wednesday to you, Shanna here with a summer scrapbook challenge for you. Do you have a P365 or P52 scrapbook project you work on? Or have you ever wanted to do one of these projects and just couldn’t commit to it? I know I have, but I’ve always failed at keeping up with taking daily or weekly pictures. So I thought you know a summer journal would be fun especially for my daughter then the idea sparked hey why not a Project Summer Scrapbook. The idea is to make a layout once per week for every week of summer. I got started on week 2 of ours because like I said I fail easily at these projects so my week 1 well there are no pictures from it, at least not on my camera. I will probably just do a big journaling page and maybe add a few pictures from the books we checked out of the library (I still have those). Anyway, here is your challenge. Starting now take lots of pictures of your summer routine and include those fun times as well as just the days at home and scrap about them. They will make an awesome photobook to keep especially if you have a lot going on with children involved so they can remember their summer out of school.

Here is the layout for our Week 2 I put together today using Sugar Moon’s part of “The Best Summer Ever” XOXO Collab over at With Love Studio. It is an awesome collab with a lot of great summer themed stuff from a number of designers including Sugar Moon and Missy’s Bits. So go pick it up today for only $6.99.

BORED BINGO!! Summer Activities for kids

By creativeteam

Hi there, Shanna here once again with another fun Summer Activity for the kids. Do you often get tired of hearing your kids say “Mom, I’m bored!” all throughout the summer? Well here is a fun solution for those bored kiddos. Back in early May I was talking with a few of my friends from my MOPS (Mother’s of Preschoolers) group and we were talking about how we planned to keep our kids busy during the summer months. One of my friends said last year she’d made a BINGO chart of her kids with activities listed on it for them to do and check off as they went, in addition to having activities to do they learned stradegy on how to get a BINGO  so they could in turn earn tickets for incentives she made up for them. Well I thought this was an awesome idea and just knew my almost 7 year old would love this to keep her busy and off all the electronics all day.  Here are the rules I made up for our BORED Bingo and the incentives for earning bingo tickets.

Here is my daughter, Allison, marking off her first BINGO square on the first day of summer break!

A close up of my BORED Bingo card framed in a square 8×8 frame (you could do any size). I framed my card so we could easily use a dry erase marker on the glass to mark off the squares as she completes them. Then after we’re done with the week we can erase all the marks and insert a new card for the week and reuse this card if we want to again. (TIP: If you don’t want to frame it you could also laminate or put it inside a clear pocket protector and mark on it using a dry erase marker.)

And of course I wouldn’t show you this without including a FREEBIE for you to printout and use if you’d like. In this freebie package you’ll get 3 bingo cards I made for my daughter (the activities may not work for your family but they may so I included them), 1 blank bingo card you can use to write your own activities on, and a sheet of 12 Bingo tickets to print out.

All of these freebies I made using Sugar Moon’s “Sea Jewels ” kit

Thursday Tutorials: Changing Background Paper into Shapes

By creativeteam

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!

Thursday’s Speed Scrap

By creativeteam

Hi, scrappers!  It is Melissa T. here, welcoming you to our monthly speed scrap here at Scrapping Artistry.   I am very glad that you chose to wake up early (or break away from your lunch or dinner) to join us at Sugar Moon Design’s Facebook Fan Page for what promises to be a very exciting and creative speed scrap.  For all of you who decided to get all of the instructions at once (or got lost along the way), I am posting instructions below for the complete scrap.  Beneath that you will find my sample for the speed scrap.  I used Sugar Moon’s “Smitten” kit which includes a plethora of lovely papers, unique embellishments, and a glittery pink alphabet.

You can find her kits at Divine Digital, MyMemories, and With Love Studio.

For everyone entering the “Thursday Speed Scrap”, please post your layout along with your gallery or blog site link and email address in the next 24 hours to receive your lovely participation prize created by our resident creative team member Ambie.  And with that, happy scrapping!

Wacky for Facebook Banners-Challenge!!

By creativeteam

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

Thanks for all your support!  Have great February 29th!
