Super Summer Sale

Dedication CardOh, I doooo love a good sale … winter sale, spring sale, super summer sale, end-of-line sale – whatever, lol! Whether it’s scrapbooking products, clothes or technology, I’d rather wait a little and save money than pay high prices for the newest products. It must be my Scots blood, lol.

This card uses the oval and oval scalloped nestabilities from Spellbinders. Isabella bought them a while back on sale and says, “I was quite slow discovering nestabilities but now I’ve found them I absolutely love them! I have such a huge list of all those I want to get that I’ll have to buy them on sale.”

Card makers and scrapbookers would do well to take a look at the Stamps, Spellbinders, Sizzix, Hero Arts, Penny Black and Copic products that are all in the 2Peas super summer sale – and lots more! Sale prices range from 10-60% off. Have fun!

I like a simple layout idea, whether it’s my own or a scraplift from someone else. This one shows some spring flowers that have popped up now winter is past.

Isn’t it amazing what a few days of sunshine does for the garden at this time of year? The grass is beginning to shout, “Cut me! Cut me!”; cherry trees, which had only recently started showing signs of new growth, suddenly burst into blossom; magnolia, azalea and rhododendron are bursting to life all around. I love it! To look at, at least …

How to Download a Sketch

by Genie on April 1, 2011

in Getting Started

People have been asking me how to download a sketch. There are three options, depending on what you want to do.

Firstly, right-click on the image and select ‘print picture’ to do just that.

Next, if you want to make a copy to file then right-click and choose ‘save picture as’ (or the appropriate words in your system) which will save the image to your hard drive. You will be able to access it in your own files – and to print it from there if you wish.

On the other hand, if what you really mean is ‘Can I have this file to use in my photo-editing program?” then visit our shop to see if it is there.  And if it’s not there yet, leave a comment asking for the digital files on the specific post, or email me (right-click to open in a new window/tab) with the sketch number and I’ll prepare the PSD and PNG files and put them in the shop.

So now you know how to download a sketch. Have fun scrapping!

Simple Layout Idea with Sketch 45: Circus

March 15, 2011

For this simple layout idea I used scrapbooking sketch 45. I used the star as a photo mask and changed the stroke (the fine line or ‘mat’ behind the photo) from grey to white. It looks better on the finished layout and helps the eye distinguish the small photograph from the large one.

Scrapbook Calendar: February 2011

February 15, 2011

I thought I’d show a page from my scrapbook calendar for 2011. My calendars are small and simple this year because I ran out of time. I got waaaay behind with sorting photos, so despite preparing digital templates for A4 and A5 calendars last summer, the job did not get finished. However, it does allow […]
