Digital scrapbooking is all about remembering something. Anything.
It doesn't require a lot. It just requires a creative eye, and a thought.
That's it!

So, this speed scrap? Turn up the music, listen to your heart, and go with it!

Step 1: While you don't always have to have a picture, most layouts do contain at least one.
So, choose at least one.

Step 2: Even if you're doing an amazing hybrid project, you need some papers.
Or a flood fill tool. Right?
So, choose Your Background Paper

Step 3: Elements. Layouts are made by elements. {Hush! Yes, I know it can be paper layers, we'll get to that!}
So, choose at least four different TYPES of elements.
Choose 3 of the SAME element, as well (of any of the four you chose).
So, you chose a ribbon, a button, a flair, and a flower. Choose ONE of those, and have THREE of them.
Cluster however you desire.

Step 4: Remember those paper layers that was mentioned? Time to play with those!
Choose at least FOUR papers.
Cut one into a circle.
Cut one into a square.
Cut one into a TRIANGLE.
Cut one into a non-regular shape. Like a foot. Or a leaf. Or something like that.
Add them to your layout, over and under your photo(s).

Step 5: Oh, you thought you were done? Hee hee, not quite just yet.
Journaling makes a BIG difference in a layout, but we're not there.
Hee hee. Add a title. At least two words. At least one ALPHA and one FONT.
Split the title along the top and the bottom.

Step 6: That journaling thing. It's back to annoy you now.
A picture can tell a story, but sometimes, you choose a picture that you know the story to, but no one else does.
Tell that story. We want to hear it (well, read it :P).

Step 7: Your layout might look a little flat. Wanna know why? You might have forgotten those things called shadows.
They're very important in digital scrapbooking. It's what gives the layout dimension and depth!
Make sure you use them!

Hi Petra! The little link at the top on the right that says chat room in black tiny letters is the one that works. :)

11-04-2011, 09:38 PM
the link it right up there in black font between "settings" and and "My profile"

The link in the header is actually gone.. I bet you need a hard refresh (restart your computer) to see the updated header :)

Hi girls, nope, not working but maybe it's a firefox thing.
Have fun over there and thank you for hosting an evening scrap for us Europeans, I'll join you right here :-) :kisses

11-04-2011, 09:50 PM
hmm. I'm on firefox. Sometime it needs an update, When you get a chance make sure yout Firefox is up to date- then shut down your computer and once it starts back up try again.

11-04-2011, 10:06 PM
something is wrong with the chat? Is 7 the last instruction? Should I wrap it up and upload to gallery?

11-04-2011, 10:14 PM
I hope I'm doing this right and put it in the right place.

Great speed scrap! I was off with my friend and her babies! (2 year old and 6 month old twins!) and in a few minutes off to the airport to pick up the hubby (sure have missed him this week!), but will try to get a layout done!
