started

I first met digital scrapbooking in 2007/8 while I was googling and it was the first time a “heard” about scrapbooking! A few time later I started designing freebies and then kits for sale and I’ve sold in a LOT of stores since then but in June/2014 I finally found my digi home at Sweet Shoppe!

inspired

As I dreamer girl, life always inspires me! All the little things, images, moments… children books, home decor, paintings, color combos, people around me, etc. Pinterest has been my addiction when it comes to find inspiration!

tools

Computer: I’d love to have something new to add here but this haven’t changed since my last time posting here but here it goes again!
Computer: I use a PC Accer laptop and a portable external HD.
Program: PS/Ai/Tablet and a 3D scanner


Program: Adobe Photoshop / Illustrator CS5

Camera: I’m in need of a new camera because my old one is broken since a long time! 🙁

Anything Else: Can I talk about my wishlist?! LOL because for now I have a Jurassic Tablet needing for an update!


tipstricks

Oh I’m a disaster when it comes to share tips and tricks… I’m the kind of person who is always reading and searching for them instead of sharing. I think it’s because is kind of difficult to try to explain easily in another language. That’s why I always try to keep my posts quick and simple!

favorite

I love the theme and colors of this kit and I think it ended up exactly how it was in my mind before becoming a real kit! Bright, bold and full of fun elements!

popular

Tone on Tone Title

Tone on Tone Title

When you want a title on your page, but you don’t want it to overwhelm your design, using a subtle tone-on-tone colour trick can help.

Here are a few different ways to achieve a tone-on-tone title on your digital scrapbook pages.

Shadowed Paper

I typed out my title in a large font, filling all of the white space on the page. I clipped the same off-white paper that I had used on the background to the text, and shadowed it using my usual paper shadow settings. The shadow gives it just a bit of separation from the background, but overall the look is still uncluttered even though the page itself it full.

Slightly Darker Text

I wanted a simple typed title on this page, but when I used a dark font or red or yellow font, it threw off the balance of the design. To solve this problem, I changed the colour of the title font to the background colour (using the eye dropper tool) and then manually adjusted it to be just a tiny bit darker. It is a subtle title, but definitely there.

Letterpress

Like above, I typed out the title in a similar colour font, just slightly darker. On this page though I added a slight letterpress effect. If letterpress is new to you, Janet did a post about achieving it in PSE here. There are also commercial use letterpress PS styles available for purchase.

I hope some of these title tips help you on a future page. Happy scrapping!

VIDEO TUTORIAL: Using Journaling Cards to Add Text to Your Photos

Last week I shared a post about using journaling cards to add text to your photos. A number of you commented and asked for more information on how to do it. I thought it would be helpful for you to just see me do it, so I have a short video for you. I hope this helps! Your magic wand tool is so useful for scrapping! I used it on almost every layout!
