Keeping Things Flat in your Project Life Album by Sarah

Hi, everyone. Sarah, here! I have a new Project Life page to share with you today. For this project I used Simply Wonderful by Erica Zane, Studio Basic, and Sugarplum Paperie. This kit has so many awesome embellishments and amazing papers it was perfect for my Project Life page. I love using dimensional items on my Project Life pages but I worry a bit about the bulk, so I use them fairly sparingly. I do however try to add lots of texture using various paper elements and layers. I love the interest that just paper can create on page. For this first card I used the doily paper included in the kit, reduced to 6″x6″ before printing. I love the little bit of texture that

If you are anything like me, you’ve watched videos of paper scrappers working on their Project Life spreads. They bring out a collection of products, trim their photos, and set about creating their pages. I’ve always done Project Life hybrid, laying everything out on a canvas and then printing my photos and elements separately and then putting everything together and placing them in the pocket page. I love watching these Project Life scrappers and their use of traditional supplies. I loved their ability to move things around on the page until it suited them, and with the way I was doing hybrid, there was little room for change once things were printed. As I was watching a video this past weekend I got a brainstorm…

Hybrid Inspiration with Andrea

Hybrid Inspiration with Andrea

Hello! Andrea here with you today to bring you some hybrid inspiration, along with a little tutorial to help you create your own beautiful hybrid card. Today I will be showing you how I created this card that uses the Flowers After the Rain collection: 1) Print and cut paper to fit a folded piece of white cardstock. Use a distress tool, scissor blade (or good old thumbnail!) to distress the edges, just enough to ruffle them and then glue onto the white card: 2) Cut a strip of contrasting paper, ruffle the bottom edge so it curls up and adhere to the card: 3) Add strips of lace, trim or ribbon: 4) Print and cut label element, add a sentiment with a rubber stamp

Hi! Tasha here (aka my2monkeys) totally excited to be bringing you the next Project Life inspiration posting. Just to share a little about my style… I’m totally a hybrid Project Life scrapper. I love working with my digital supply stash, but I wanted to add more physical items to my album as well. Hybrid is perfect for that, plus I love being able to print my 4×6 and 3×4 cards at home and instantly put them in my album. Speaking of albums, in the world of pocket scrapbooking there are a variety of pocket pages by several companies in a range of sizes. I love working with the standard 12×12 size, yet sometimes I feel like changing it up a bit. This week, I have

Hi, everyone! Sarah here (you may know me as sarahbhb in the forums). This is my first post for Nicole and I’m excited to be sharing some Project Life pages with you. If you are anything like me, you are “behind” on your Project Life pages (I put behind in quotes because we really shouldn’t look at it as being behind… I love every moment that I have captured in these pockets, and even if I don’t get everything done that I want, I’m still collecting amazing memories). I know some of you are great about making the time at the end of each week to get everything in the pocket pages, but, unfortunately, I have not made that a priority in my life lately.

Heart Art Tutorials: How to Change the Colors of .PNG

I’m here today with a quick little tutorial, a sneak peek at something new that is coming out this weekend AND a little freebie—just for you! I wanted to show you a little Photoshop secret that has changed my life and saved me a TON of time. It’s a simple trick that helps you change the color of a .png and allows you to use a brush in .png format without ever adding it to your brush collection (because, really—who has that much disc space?! Meh!). Here’s how you can quickly and easily change from black & white… …into color, like you see above. Are you ready for it? Don’t blink—you might miss this. It’s super simple. You lock the transparent pixels, like so: Then,
