Another month and another installment of our fun MORE WITH FOUR challenge! Each month we select four products from THE DIGI FILES and challenge scrappers to do MORE WITH FOUR. We want to show other scrappers some of the cool things about digital — the ability to alter, to resize, to recolor, to use more than one of the same item, etc. There are some great advantages of digi and there are so many things you can do with just a few supplies.
Here is the basic set of guidelines:
- You will be given four digital products.
- You are to create a layout or hybrid project using these four products only
- For a digital layout, in addition to these items you can use paint/inking, paper tears or tearing actions, and fonts
- You can alter the items shown as long as the item is still recognizable.
- You need to use some of each of the items.
This month we have chosen four really fun products, all from THE DIGI FILES 5:
Word Art by Steph 2
Papers by Amber Clegg
Stitching by Amy Hutchinson
Film Frames by Leora Sanford
And here are some of the amazing layouts our team did using JUST these four products!
Layout by Amy
Amy has this to say, “Look through your custom shape menu! You will find tons of shapes you can use as clipping masks. I love the butterfly. A little bit of shading and shadows make them look like they are lifted off the page.“
Layout by Steph
Layout by Jacki
“The girls were beyond silly when I was trying to snap photos during their sleepover, but I wanted to get it scrapped for the memories of it. My DD’s friend is moving away today – so sad. I used the cookie cutter tool in PSE to cut the moon from Amber’s paper. The hearts and stars are extracted from Stephanie2’s adorable wordart in The Digi Files 5.”
Layout by Rachael
“I used the outline version of the wordart and then added the colors by using the eyedropper to select colors from Amber’s papers.”
Layout by Ana
“I had so much fun doing this challenge! When I saw the film frames, I immediately knew I wanted to spread them out across my page. Then I grabbed one of the doodles and I had my theme. I LOVE the result!”
Layout by Dunia
“It was a challenge for me use a patterned background in my page, but I love the contrast with bold paper and softeness pictures.”
Layout by Katie
“This was a really tricky assignment for me but I’m glad for the creative exercise that it gave me. I have become very accustomed to using mainly one kit when I create a page these days and this made me think a little harder about how to combine products I might not usually use together. The only thing I used besides the 4 products was a template by Ali Edwards“
Layout by Kellie
Layout by Karen
“I am loving the challenge of these layouts! I’d been excited to use the ribbon version of the Celebrate word art with pictures of my husband walking in the Survivor Lap at Relay For Life this weekend! I used the outline version of the word art in several ways. For the title, I filled in the letters with color, then added a drop shadow, bevel and texture to make it looks as though it was cut out instead of stamped. I also used various layer styles (like vivid light and color burn) for the various lightly stamped versions of the title on the background paper. I also extracted the stars from two different versions of the word art. The fonts are Fontologie Printing Primer Low-fat and Inheritance Font “
Now it is YOUR turn! Do a MORE WITH FOUR layout using the above products and post a link in the comments section of this post before Wednesday. We will be giving away some great coupons!
