Christmas Poster Made with Digital Scrapbook Elements

I have this wooden hanger in my living room, and I switch out posters on it. Usually the posters coordinate with whatever we are learning in school. For Christmas I wanted something a little more festive and couldn't quite find what I wanted. Since I'm handy in Photoshop I thought, why not make my own?

So I did!

I realize my poster is a little small for the wooden frames. Apparently I was off on my measurements. Next time I make another poster I'll be sure to order something a bit bigger.

I started with a blank 11x17 canvas in Photoshop and then used elements from this kit to make a wreath like frame. I used Ctrl+J to duplicate the different elements, and I used the move tool to rotate the elements until everything look good.

I used Mulberry Script Pro Bold to type up my words.

Then I used Persnickety Prints to print my poster. I ordered an 11x17 Pearl Press Print. It has a nice shiny pearl look to it. It was only $1 extra to get the Pearl Print. Totally worth it.

Now, if I could only get the rest of my Christmas decorations up!

Week 46: This Page Was a Struggle!

Weekly Life Templates 12 by Scrapping with Liz
Memory Pockets Monthly Kit  - Kindred Nov' 16 and Add-Ons Available at TLP
I had this week's page open in Photoshop for 3 days. I started it Saturday night but just couldn't keep my eyes open to finish it. I left Photoshop open thinking I would finish it the next day, really quick. It sat there until Tuesday night! My hubby was out of town, and I ended up getting sick Sunday night. Talk about a double whammy. Newly home with two new toddlers, husband has to leave for 4 days, and then I get sick. Needless to say there was no time on the computer and as soon as the kids were in bed so was I. I finally finished it up Tuesday night. All is good now. The hubby is back, I'm feeling back to normal, and Week 46 is done!

Album Inspiration with Kayta: Spanish Holidays 2014 Album

One of my Creative Team Members, Katya, made a gorgeous travel album. She used my templates along with some other digital scrapbook items.

Here's the grand list:

I thought you might like to see it. Maybe it will get your creative juices flowing. I know we all have some albums we could get finished.

Here are some close ups of the printed lay flat album. She used a local source to print her album:

Doesn't it look great?


With the lay flat pages you can get that seamless look.

So many great photos and memories captured.

And she even decorated that back. I love those stamps! I'm going to have to do that with our China album.

Hope that gives you some inspiration.
