Cut out effect Text

While this technique is not technically Scrapping, it IS one of the most requested tutorials once people have seen the results (this stat, for example). MoonDesigns is no longer being actively updated; she's moved on to soap operas, so you might want to print this out to keep. It has a lot of applications in making stats, scraps, and general PSP. It's simple and, I think, can be done in PSE as well as PSP with little moderation.

The corners I used making this stat are dingbats!



Hello everyone I am Jeanne,

Everyone's posts have been wonderful and very creative, sometime I hope to have time to do all of them. When I am in creative and design mode I tend to gravitate to soft colors and vintage style. I also like making templates, and elements in grey scale and sepia tone the things I will use alot so they can be recolored. I feel so blessed and honored to be a part of this team of talented and creative designers.

My contribution for you today is a tut from scrap-stuff-with-psp-tutorials. love this site, so many tuts and so little time.

Here is my preview for the suede ribbons, I hope you enjoy the tut.

Scrap Blends

For the second post I have chosen a scrap blend, from PSP-Pals, they are so much fun, and this Tutorial can be so adaptable.

You will need to go to "Scrap Blends" and then "Scrap Blend 15". If you download any materials from here, they are all saved closed, so you will need to open them in PSP to see them. The main thing is to have fun, If you need any help then please get in touch with me Thank You.

With this one below I adapted it to suit Spring, I also used a wonderful kit from. unfortunately they are no longer on line.

What is Scraplifting?

Copying one or more design elements (title, page layout, etc.) from someone's layout and using it for your own scrapbook pages.

Fairly common among scrappers, especially when suffering from Scrapper's Block. As the saying goes... "Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery."

Scraplifting Etiquette:

Personally I would not CASE a layout "Copy and Steal Everything"
Better to use a layout as an inspiration and then use your own ideas and scraps to make it your own.

Layout using Poetry, Quotations, Lyrics

Layout using Poetry, Quotations, Lyrics

Using your favourite poetry, quotations or lyrics, create a layout using your own kits.

10 Valentine's Day Scrapbooking Ideas

10 Valentine's Day Scrapbooking Ideas With or Without Photos
By Christine Perry

Valentine's Day is all about romance, love and friendship. It may not be a common picture-taking opportunity, but with or without a photo, there are still plenty of Valentine's Day scrapbooking ideas. Remember this February 14th and that special someone you asked to be yours with these Valentine's Day scrapbook page tips.

1. Find a Photo- just because you don't have a photo taken on February 14th doesn't mean you can't include photos in your Valentine's layout. Find a photo of you and sweetheart from another occasion to fix that problem. You can go back as far you as you want for a picture of you both together, perhaps even a wedding picture.

2. Choose a Page Title- Need some help coming up with a Valentine's Day themed title? Here are a few suggestions:

How Do I Love Thee?
I Love You
I Want to Kiss You All Over
Crazy Little Thing Called Love
My Heart Belongs to You
This Kiss
Always and Forever
High School Sweethearts
Be Mine

3. Choose Romantic Page Elements: Obvious choices for your page elements are hearts and roses, but look at your other scrapbooking supplies for embellishments that make you think of romance. For example, use white lace, a pink satin ribbon, red bows or Victorian accents.

4. Add Color- Red is the color of the day for Valentines' Day, but too much red on your page may overpower your focal point. Use red as an accent, and try adding more white and pink to your layout.

5. Add Your Valentine's Day Cards- Cards make decorative page elements. You can create a pocket on the page to add the cards you gave to each other. This way they can be removed so you can read the sentiments inside.

6. Write Love Letters- Journaling is just as important on a Valentine's layout as it is on any other scrapbooking page. Use the page title ideas listed above to prompt journaling ideas. You could also include handwritten love letters given any time of the year or from the past.

7. Add a Love Poem- if you want a quick way to add journaling, use a love poem or quote on your page. It's easy to find plenty of choices for poems and quotes by doing a search for "romantic poems" on the internet.

8. Photograph Valentine's Day Gifts- Include a photo of the box of chocolates or roses you received, and scrapbook the gift card. If you had a nice dinner out, put a photo of the restaurant on your page and don't forget to journal what you each ordered for dinner.

9. Remember the Kids- Children celebrate Valentine's Day too. Include cards exchanged from school mates on a special page for your children. Record their feelings about this holiday and what it means to them.

10. Dedicate a Page to Your Valentine- Instead of focusing on the couple, use a page layout to express all the reasons why you love him/her.

With a little creativity, you can create a beautiful Valentine's Day page layout even if you don't have a photo from that day. You don't even need special supplies. You probably already have embellishments with a romantic theme. Add some white and pink cardstock and some red letters, and you have everything you need to make a Valentine's Day scrapbooking page.
