Free Beachy Quick Page {100 Days of Summer Scrapbook Ideas! Day 7}

Happy Friday, hope you have fun weekend plans! Here’s a little freebie for you – a beachy digital quick page :).

This photo is from our trip to the beach when I was pregnant with Julia. I can’t believe she is now the age Gabe was in this photo…and I can’t believe I haven’t scrapbooked these photos yet – LOL!

The download includes a 12″x12″ png file with a “hole” for the photo (to use in Photoshop, etc) and a 12″x12″ jpeg file for printing or uploading to photo book software. Enjoy!

Digital Quick Pages and Templates for Christmas Photos!

If you’re anything like me, you took many, MANY great photos during the holidays and you have yet to scrapbook most of them. Here we are at the end of January, and I still haven’t finished going through all my Christmas photos yet! Granted, this Christmas was extra special. Actually, I’m pretty sure, far as I can remember, it was my best Christmas EVER :)! So I did take tons of pics. Anyway, I meant to share these before Christmas, but I got caught up in the excitement of fun holiday happenings and getting ready for lots of family coming into town. I’m sure there are at least a FEW of you out there who might be needing some quick pages to help finish up scrapbooking your Christmas pics, and if not you can save these up for next year :). They all coordinate with the Christmas Heart kit and other freebies that came with it. Enjoy!

A Lovely Faithbook Page

Sometimes, a single Bible verse is so meaningful to me that I decide to make an entire scrapbook page just for that verse. I made this one a while ago, and it has been hanging in my scraproom above my computer to inspire me whenever I look up at it :). This is one of my favorite Bible verses. In fact, it is the inspiration for the title of my blog: Lovely, Lovely Things (which I have finally been posting at again)!

Hybrid Faithbook Page

For how-to tips and product information about this faithbook page, check out the original post on the Prima blog.

Have you used a favorite Bible verse on a scrapbook/faithbook page? If so, I want to see it …  and if not, consider yourself challenged to try it :)! I’d love to see what you have made, so please leave a comment with a link to your page or project if you have something to share :)!

Double Page Layout

The Prima design team members were challenged to create two-page layouts recently, here’s what I came up with – a couple of pages for my wedding scrapbook (yes, I’m still slooooowly working on it 5 years later LOL)! I guess these also qualify as faithbook pages because of the Bible verse I have included, which was incorporated into our wedding ceremony.

True Love Hybrid Scrapbooking Detail

Here’s a close-up of a hybrid scrapbooking technique I used on page one. I had printed out an 8.5″x11″ page with a Loft 18 Silhouette, merged with one of the Beautiful Day papers, and my Bible verse typed out along the side. Then, I used chalks and colored pencils to color it in, and added the Loft 18 flower to the coordinating spot on the Silhouette.

True Love Hybrid Scrapbooking Detail 2

I used another hybrid technique on page 2: after printing out one of the So Flirty quick pages, I cut out one of the designs with a silhouette for a chipboard heart and added a bit of glitter glue to it. Then, in Photoshop, I added the word “Love” to one of the coordinating stickers from the So Flirty kit, printed it out onto the RFH sticker sheet, added it to the matching chipboard, and placed the matching epoxy sticker on top. Lastly, I placed my custom “Love” sticker right onto the spot on the silhouette!

Create a Starburst Look with Solid Papers

Papers with a starburst pattern on them are so fun, and they’re great for emphasizing part of your page, as I have done in the layout above. To get this look using a simple solid paper I followed these steps:

  1. Open the solid paper in photoshop.
  2. Using the Polygonal Lasso Tool, draw out some selections for the “rays” for your starburst. Draw the first ray, making a closed shape (it will have marching ants around it when you are finished). Holding down the shift key, draw the rest of the rays. You only need to draw the lighter colored rays. You can be a perfectionist and make sure all the rays meet perfectly in the center, or you can just make rough shapes like I did :).
  3. After step 2, you should have all of your light colored rays selected (outlined with marching ants). Right click inside one of the selections, and choose “layer via copy”
  4. Change the blend mode of the new layer you just created to “screen”, and adjust the opacity to your liking (I used 63% for this example).

That’s it – have fun :)!!!
