This Crazy Life

DesignerLogo


I might have actually squealed a little bit when I saw the kit Blagovesta Gosheva created for this month’s Digi Files. I shouldn’t have been surprised, though. Her store is just filled to the brim with incredible designs. All the fun and color—yummy! This Crazy Life, part of the May Digi Files, is just as fun as you would expect it to be. It completely captures the busyness we all have a love/hate relationship with. This kit will be perfect for so many pages!






This is ONE of SEVEN collections you get when you become a member of The Digi Game this month. You also get an interactive Playbook (in PDF and iBooks formats) that has lots of ideas for using the supplies including techniques, tips, and tricks! All of that, including access to exclusive collaborations every four months you are a member, for only $7.50 total per month! Here are some layouts created using Blagovesta Gosheva’s contribution:

Name

I am 40 and I am from Bulgaria. I live in a small academic town on the Danube. It is a quiet and beautiful town with many young people. I have a 9-year old daughter who is my everything.
I work as a full time graphic designer at a Publishing House 16 years now. Digital scrapbooking and designing is not merely a second job for me. It is something I really love, as it allows me to express myself, to give freedom to my imagination, and above all, I do enjoy being involved in it.
As for my free time, mountains are one of my passions. It is such a great source of energy and joy! I also love reading books, going for walks in the countryside, biking with my daughter.

layout

It’s hard to choose only one layout 🙂 I love all of my pages because each keeps some of our memories. This time I decided to feature this sooo old layout. It’s nothing special but when I was browsing my folders last week I found it and it made me smile. 🙂

started

I came across Digital Scrapbooking by chance in 2007 while I was reading the posts in a forum. It seemed quite interesting to me and I decided I should have a try at it. So I did and I just got addicted.
In 2011, a van hit me as I was going to work in the morning and I had a leg badly broken. I had to undergo several surgeries. I was bed-ridden for a very long time, and I couldn’t go to work. I spent those endless days at the computer at home while my daughter was at the kindergarten. I scrapped many pictures. I had many photos of my daughter with her dinosaurs (she was crazy about them) and I started looking around the shops for a good dinosaur kit. Then I thought I might try to make my own. So I got to it and made my dinosaur kit as well as some other stuff … it was such a fun! At first, I did not intend to sell them, but then I decided to try out of curiosity and in June 2011, my first kit was released.

inspired

Each time it is something different. Small, ordinary everyday things inspire me the most.

tools

Computer: I work on a PC that runs Windows 7 64 bit, an Intel Core at 2,8 GHz, with 8 GB RAM, 23″ monitor.

Program: I use mainly Photoshop and Illustrator designing my digital scrapbooking products.

Camera: After my Nikon damaged I use only my phone and it make pretty good pictures. I’m not sure if I’ll by new camera soon. The phone is handy – always with me and I don’t feel need to have new camera for now 🙂

Anything Else: I use a Wacom tablet and HP ScanJet scanner.

tipstricks

I’ll show you how I add a little more pop to my ready to print or web layouts – I use it with almost every page I make and for all kit previews.
With your finished and already flattened image opened, right click on the image in the Layer palette and select Duplicate Layer. Highlight this new layer and go up to the Filter menu -> Other -> High pass. Use the slider to set the radius to about 10 (if you work with high resolution 300 dpi image before to save it for the web or galleries at low resolution) or 0.4-0.5 if your image is low resolution (72 dpi or saved for web). Click OK. Go back to the Layer palette and in the top left corner from the drop down change the blending mode to Hard light. Go to the opacity slider in the top right corner of the Layers palette and select the level of sharpening that seems best for you. I usually do between 65-75%.
Click the eye beside this layer on and off to see the difference.

favorite

It’s hard to say I have only one favourite product but I chose Summer in the city. May be because of it’s fun, playful and quirky look… I don’t know, I just love it. 🙂
