Simple Life Templates 6 & May Recap Templates!

 This week's NEW releases are my Simple Life Templates 6 & May Recap Templates

Simple Life Templates 6 have a simple, yet artsy feel to them. There are plenty of photo and journaling spots and some fun paper masks and original stamps and doodles.

May Recap Templates can be used to recap your month. One template spells out the word May with unique paper layers and some fun photo spots. The other template is a collage style for a place to document lots of photos.

It's GSO Time!

Y’all, it’s almost the end of May!!  Can you believe that?  Here in the States, most people are finishing up the school year and trying to fit in all those spring sports, band concerts, choir concerts, exams, and whatever else kids are doing.  I find May even busier than December and I’m ready for June to get here!  Right now, scrapping time is severely limited, so I need to just scraplift layouts from the gallery and get pages done.  I found some lovely ones in that I will be using as a jumpstart this week.  Let me show you the eye candy I found 😊

This first layout is by Trish:

I love seeing prom pictures so of course this drew my attention immediately.  Her wood background is so pretty behind the photos and the word strip is too funny!

Oh my!! I had to show you this one by djp332:

Both mom and daughter have great smiles that just fill my heart with joy.  I love the big photo as well as the smaller one taken from a different perspective.  Such a cheerful page!

I also love it when designer scraps, so of course I wanted to show off this page by ninigoesdigi:

Don’t you admire the way she curved the stitching around the circle and mimicked that shape with both her text and journaling??  Very cool!

I’m a huge fan of being out in nature so I couldn’t resist putting this page here by Vrielinkie:

I adore the multi-circle frame and how she’s repeated the circle shape throughout the page.  Love the geometry and symmetry on this page!

As a lifetime member of WW, I wanted to highlight this page by KayTeaPea:

She’s done an amazing job of achieving her goals and I love that she scrapped her accomplishments too.  So often we scrap everyone else’s successes but not our own.  Way to go KayTeaPea!

Well, that’s it for me this month.  I’m off to try to catch up on my scrapping which I know will go faster tonight now that I’ve seen these gorgeous layouts.  Please be sure to click on the forum names and leave some well-deserved love in the gallery and come back next month for some more picks! 

Week 20 - Mother's Day, Outdoors, Yummy Food!

Here's my week 20! I'll let you just read the journaling and look at the pictures to see what filled my week. It was a good week.

Cut Out Inspiration Pages

 I've gotten a few questions on how to use my cut out files on digital scrapbook pages. So, I'm here with a few inspirational layouts to give you some different ideas on how to use them.

Some of the quickest and easiest ways to use cut outs are by using styles or simply clipping papers to the cut outs and playing with the layer styles (shadows, strokes, etc...)

This first one here is by Ellen and she used the Celebrate cut out. You can get this look by clipping a piece of paper to the cut out and then using an inner shadow to get that cut out paper look.

This page is by Donna. She clipped a piece of paper to the happy cut out and then filled the extra letters with another paper layer. I love that she contrasted the bright colors of the cut out with the black paper, and her extraction is fabulous!

by Donna

With this cut out, Trish, simply clipped a piece of paper to the cut out and gave it depth by giving it a deeper shadow.

by Trish

Tracy made this simple and stunning page by clipping a paper to the cut out and then adding an inner shadow, just like the first page.

by Tracy

This unique page was made by Ellen. She clipped the same paper to the cut out that she used for the background, and then give it an inner shadow. It makes it looks like it's cut out of the paper. I love it!

by Ellen

Another one by Ellen, this technique could be accomplished by either using a style or by adding a white stroke to the cut out.

by Ellen

Here's another one by Donna. She gave this cut out a vellum look. You can either use a style or lower the opacity and play around with the blends to get different looks.

I hope that gives you a little inspiration on how to use cut outs! You can shop all of my cut outs right here.
