I don't know if I'll have any internet access while in Albuquerque and will surely be having major withdrawals.

I'll have a participation prize for ya'll, too. If you'd like a reminder for the event, you can set it here (http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/forum/calendar.php?do=getinfo&e=747&day=2009-9-16&c=1).

I hope to see you there!

(that's 10:30 PM EST)

************************************************
15 minute head start :D

1. find a template to use to set up your LO. A majority of you layout will be based on the template so go
ahead and find all of the things you need to fill it. (if you can't work with templates you can use one and lift the LO of it)

2. shrink the template and mat it on another paper
3. place some ribbon or string (or both) between the template and new background. It should be peeking
out around the edges between the 2 background papers.
4. Now do something to your photo(s) turn them black and white, sepia, etc.
5. Add some buttons
6. Add at least one other element that is not part of the orignial template.
7. Title and date. You may journal if you wish.

Upload to the Speed scrap gallery and post a link here. Don't forget to leave some gallery love for you fellow Speed Scrappers.

After the busy busy week I have had, I am so ready for a speed scrap. But, Is this AM or PM???? If it is AM I will have to drag myself out of my first nite in my own bed after a week, lol.

lol It is PM. Trying to do it just a tad later than normal so my west coast buddies can maybe make it to play. I'll edit the title with the PM addtion.

lol. i <3 my mil, but 11 days might be too much, too. :D Now the 3 days at my Grand MIL's might be too much and I won't have internet!! I'm taking all my files and scrapping and designing while there as well as a couple bottles of wine :cheers:

Kaelira
09-14-2009, 01:44 PM
I DO like my MIL; she's a really nice lady. But I don't think I could handle 11 consecutive days of her in my house. Heck, I can barely handle 11 days with my OWN family!!

Oo, 3 days with no internet? GL! But at least you'll have Photoshop :D

Speeds scraps are lots of fun. Its like many of the other challenges that take place every month at GDs. Only this one is completed over the course of 2 hours.

During the first hour I will give you 1 prompt every ten minutes. You work as I give you the instructions. It could be anything from the number of photos and papers to use or specific elements,etc. Once we have finished the 1st hour you get to take the 2nd hour to get the layout completed and uploaded into the speed scrap gallery and think posted in the speed scrap thread with a link to the gallery image.

After its all done we leave each other some gallery love and I'll send you your participation prize.

They are very addicting, too. You've been warned. :biggrin:

So looking forward to this, Val! I am encouraged that the later hour will make it possible for me to attend distraction free! I just have to make sure to give my hubby lots of attention before the time rolls around...either that or find a football game for him to watch...then he won't even miss me...LOL

You can tell how brain dead we all are this week. Am, PM, 6:30, Tuesday, Thursday...

Then I got bored and sick of this freaking headache while I was waiting the last hour and popped a vicodin...so all instructions may be very loosly inturpted by me.

What it basically means, is that if you do not know how to use a template, then you can find a lo in the gallery that you like and use the design of it with your own papers and photo. So, copy their lo-scraplift!

LOL, I wouldn't want anyone watching me scrap, either. I don't like when others hover over me when I'm doing stuff. That, and the person most likely to watch would want to "help..." Sorry, but toddlers aren't very helpful with scrapping! Thank goodness for bedtime!

Fireandiceshay
09-16-2009, 06:56 PM
So, uh, question. If the template has a background paper that the rest of the LO is on, can I just use that, but shrink the rest so the space is more pronounced (it's your strippy template 1 if that helps)?

dylabel
09-16-2009, 06:57 PM

Yeah here it is:
1. find a template to use to set up your LO. A majority of you layout will be based on the template so go
ahead and find all of the things you need to fill it. (if you can't work with templates you can use one and lift the LO of it)

Yes Teri. You can be filling in your template. Val posted that earlier

geniaBeana
09-16-2009, 07:23 PM
So do we fill out the entire template and then save it and then re-open on another lo layer??

Or just select all the layers in the template and transform to make it all smaller than 12 x 12

Here they all are again. I posted them a few minutes ago in case of another crash. I'm so frustrated right now. lol

1. find a template to use to set up your LO. A majority of you layout will be based on the template so go
ahead and find all of the things you need to fill it. (if you can't work with templates you can use one and lift the LO of it)

2. shrink the template and mat it on another paper
3. place some ribbon or string (or both) between the template and new background. It should be peeking
out around the edges between the 2 background papers.
4. Now do something to your photo(s) turn them black and white, sepia, etc.
5. Add some buttons
6. Add at least one other element that is not part of the orignial template.
7. Title and date. You may journal if you wish.

Hit refresh a couple of times, still see only 1 get the template going.

Been SOOOOO long since I've scrapped, have the patterned paper with parts want grouped with the underlying frame layer (Photoshop Elements), but how do I move them both? Pointing at it just moves the paper.

Highlight both in the layer's palette with ctrl click on each that you need to shrink. and then you can transform both.

So I'm like really late, but here is my layout.

http://www.godigitalscrapbooking.com/photopost/showphoto.php?photo=65398&nocache=1

In the future I do NOT recommend speed scraping on 500mg Vicodin.

I had a layout almost completely done when I went to transform the template size...instead of typing 85% I might have typed 18500% which locked Photoshop up since I'm having memory problems on my computer.

So I had to do a hard re-boot. Then start again since I hadn't saved anything. Then i finish a new layout and thought I'll use my favorite fractilus filter...of course it didn't dawn on me to consider that since my operating system is messed up or my motherboard is dying and not recognizing 2 of my memory slots that using this time consuming filter on a high res photos wasn't the best plan.

And if that wasn't enough after uploading the layout I then got distracted looking at the other layouts.

Then I decided to write a book size message rather than just copy the link.

So i'm thinking no speedscrapping while buzzed next time.

Kaelira
09-16-2009, 08:50 PM
Wow, yeah, no vicodin scrapping for you!! Crazy! I'm amazed you got it done with all that going on!
