I’m So Social

Sometimes, you just have to have some fun! And that’s what this kit does. I’m So Social is full of spunky and happy colors and patterns, all just ready and waiting for you to scrap about your oh-so-social life. Social media icons, device elements, and peppy colors are waiting for you!

I was looking for another little element to put in my cluster and I thought the Skype symbol would be fun so the S could stand for Sharon. When I got it into my layout, I thought maybe someone else would think I was a big fan of Skype so I decided to eliminate the little cloud. First I selected the S and clicked on the heart layer and clicked Layer/New Layer via copy and dragged the S up on top. Then I selected the black areas and repeated the process with a black element from the kit. Finally, I used the clone tool to get rid of the white shadows that were still showing. There’s probably an easier way, but I got the job done.

This kit is just perfect! My daughter used my cell phone this summer and it’s loaded with silly selfies using all these creative apps. Now I have a good excuse to get them off my phone and scrap the fun memories! To balance out the color on some of the elements and word art, I used the Eye Dropper tool and the Paint Bucket and changed the colors to give me those “triangles of color.” To make the short journaling piece a little clearer to read, I used the Dodge Tool to lighten the speech boxes in the background.

I used the speech boxes as journaling and to use the fun text acronyms and social icons. To make the text fit in the bubble shape I created a work path from the shape. To do this you Command-Click (Control-Click on a PC) on the layer picture in the layers palette, marching ants will show up around your shape. Change to the Paths palette and choose ‘Make Work Path’. Once the path is created type T for the type tool, and click inside the path, then your text will be bound to the shape.

I struggled with the design of this layout. Once I was happy with the title and journaling placement, the layout felt lopsided. So I ended up duplicating the ribbon and using the opposite end of it, placing it with a few cute buttons and positioned it opposite the title. This helped to balance everything out and I was finally able to call this one done.
