My Digital Scrapbook Two-Page Layout {Summer}

Summer Layout by Julie Walker 3-540

Happy Summer, y’all!

I’m here to show you how easy it is to create a Digi Double Page Layout using two individual page templates.  If you’re like me, you like your facing pages to coordinate – in colors, theme, and photos-from-the-same-event kind of way.  In fact, this is a MUST for me.

So, here’s what I started with:

Summer Layout by Julie Walker 4-540

Jessica Sprague’s Sweet Life Template.  And…

Summer Layout by Julie Walker 5-540

Jessica’s Friends Forever Template.

Then, I picked out a really SUMMER-y collection of papers + elements by Bo Bunny.

I just loved how this Key Lime Collection went with my summer adventure photos from a recent trip to Mexico.  This kit would also work with pictures from the pool, boat, and of course, the beach!

As you can see, I just clipped in papers, photos, and a few elements.  I even added a little logo to my page, which I copied from the Selvatica Adventure Park’s website.  I often do this as it’s like attaching a physical memento from a trip (almost like saving a postcard, receipt, or other souvenir).

As for page 2, I simply moved the elements that were originally on the left side of the page to the right side (and vice versa).  I felt like this just balanced out the layout better.  I stamped a large, watercolor type brush to the bottom of this page and then clipped in the group photo.  And finally, I added a little journaling and a date to finish the pages.

I love working with templates and kits.  This makes it super easy to put everything together – FUN & FAST!

 

Supplies:

Jessica Sprague’s Template15-Sweet Life and Template15-Friends Forever 12×12 inch PSD templates.

BoBunny’s Key Lime Full Collection Kit.

Liv.E Design’s My Paintbox Volume 1 Brush Set.

Halloween Treat Jar Lids

by Dinner Hero on October 22, 2014

Halloween title photo

Looking for a fun Halloween treat to give friends and co-workers?  Perhaps you deliver “Boo” gifts to your neighbors?  Here’s a quick and easy AND tasty Halloween project!

SH witching hour paper

I used Sarah Hurley’s Witching Hour Paper & Elements to create these jar lids.

SH witching hour elements

I set up a simple document in Photoshop.  I created 12 circle shaped clipping masks.  The circle size is 2 1/4″, which is perfect for a standard size Mason jar lid.

Halloween1

This document is sized 8.5 x 11 so it is ready for printing on your home printer (or set it up as an 8×10 if you’d like to send it to a lab for printing).

Halloween2

Add paper and elements to each circle shape.  You could also personalize these with names if you know who you are giving them to!  After printing, simply cut them out using a circle cutter (scissors work too!).

Halloween4

Fill the jars with a fun Fall or Halloween treat!  You won’t believe all the ideas out there.  Take a look at these on Pinterest!

I used Chex cereal, Goldfish crackers, and M&M’s.

Halloween3

Fill jars, adhere the lid cover, and add some fun ribbon or string!
