Digital Scrapbooking Technique {100 Days of Summer Scrapbook Ideas! Day 25}

I’m home from an eleven day road trip vacation with my family – we drove through 14 states, plus some of Canada – about 3100 miles in all! Here’s my first scrapbook page about our travels :)!

Digital Scrapbook Technique for Blending a Photo with Background Paper:

Try blending a photo with digital scrapbook paper to create a unique background. First add a simple digital scrapbook paper for the background (TIP: it will look best if there is some texture, but not TOO much). Next, add the photo, stretching it to completely cover the background. Then, change the “blend mode” of the photo, by selecting an option in the pull-down menu above your layers pallet. For the above layout, I chose a waterfall photo set to the “overlay mode”. I also reduced the layer opacity to 60%. If your background photo isn’t large enough, try dividing it up like I did with mine – you only need enough to cover the visible parts of the background :).

Christmas Word Art for Faithbooking: Isaiah 9:6

Happy December my friends! This is a busy time of year for scrapbookers, who tend to be extra creative and crafty types during the holidays :). In all the excitement, don’t forget the reason for the season: Jesus Christ! Here’s a word art I made of a Bible verse from Isaiah, foretelling the birth of the savior. Feel free to use it on your blog if you like! If you are interested in the full-size version, please let me know in the comments, and I will get it to you via email :). P.S. Have you noticed the snow falling here at Scrapbook Ideas and my new holiday blog header?

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 :)!

Starburst Paper Tutorial, Plus Another Chance to Win!

Firstly, I wanted to let you all know that there is a contest going on at Sunshine Studio Scraps with a chance to win my Christmas Heart kit :)! Click Here to Check it Out :)!

I have been so focused on hybrid crafts that I haven’t talked much about digi scrapping lately. I finished up another page for my scrapblog book today, so I thought I’d share a quick tutorial :)!!

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 :)!!!

A Bible Verse for Scrapbookers (and Faithbook Page)

I love finding scrap-related Bible verses :). OK, I admit that the verse below is not specifically related to scrapbooking, but it sure does renew my commitment to this craft, and especially faithbooking! I liked this one so much, so I made a hybrid memory verse tag to display it on, using supplies from Prima.

Also, here is my most recent faithbook page! Don’t forget, you can now see all of my faithbooking projects in one place by clicking on the “Faithbooking” tab above (or you can click here). I explain a little more about faithbooking and the inspiration behind these pages in previous faithbooking posts :).

Tip: I duplicated the heart and bracket layers a few times, until they were dark enough to show up on the green background. I used the same technique with the text layers as well as trying various blend modes to help them stand out.

So, do you know any good Bible verses for scrapbookers? I’d love to hear them!

Faithbooking God’s Goodness to me :)

Just wanted to quickly post this faithbook page – I love this one because it is such a great reminder that God is so GOOD! If you want to get caught up on my previous faithbooking posts, you can see them all right here.

Psalm 126

Credits: I used the Summer Cottage kit from Shabby Princess which is ONLY available at DigiShop Talk, since she was the featured designer there for July. If you want this kit, I believe today is the last day to get it by becoming a DST Gold Member, because there is a new featured designer for each month.

OK, I have a LOT to do today – I’m leaving for vacation tomorrow morning :)!!!!
