I'm sorry I'm a little bit late getting today's Tuesday Challenge up! I decided to take today off work and use up a lieu day to play and I ended up sleeping away most of the morning with a bit of a headache! Boo! Anyway - here's the challenge! Can't wait to see everyone's work!
DGSC085– Using Pre-made Templates - 10/16/12
Many digital scrapbooking programs, like My Digital Studio that I use, or digital kits from the designers around the web, come with pre-made page templates that all you need to do is add your own photos. For me these templates rarely have a theme that I would use so I tend to ignore them. In MDS there are blank pages that have only a photo layout that I used for the first 20 or so pages I made with the software, and then I graduated to making my own layouts - OR SCRAPLIFTING FROM MAGAZINES AND OTHER SCRAPBOOKERS! It is rare for me to come up with a complete layout all by my own little self
Please do your best to give credit to the magazine, designer or page your are inspired by - it is only fair!
This week, I want you to look in your files and find some of the already designed templates in your digital stash. MDS users, you will find these when you go to create a New Project. You will click on Designer Templates and choose from there.
Once you’ve chosen a template that will work with the photos for your page go ahead and begin substituting the pre-chosen colors and embellies to suit your theme. Go ahead and keep embellishments, etc in the same location as the original template OR change it up as the creative process hits you.
*For bonus points, combine some stamped images to suit your page. You will see in my sample a ‘wheel’ I made behind my paper circle that was created by layering two stamps from Good Friend stamp set.
Traditional scrapbookers - this is your opportunity to choose a sketch you’ve seen that you would like to re-create. If you aren’t comfortable scraplifting or CASing projects, give it a try! You may even like to use the template that I made my page from, I’m attaching it here.
"PLEASE NOTE!* Although this is in the digiscrap threads, anyone is welcome to play--whether they're a digi, paper or hybrid scrapper.* Just as the digiscrappers, when doing a traditional challenge, sometimes have to change up the instructions a little to fit their digi needs, the traditional scrappers might have to improvise on some of the digi techniques.* It should make things interesting!"
