It's called "Hansa", Jayne, and it's a free one I picked up somewhere back when I first started doing anything on the computer....well, about....2003 probably. You could probably google it...
It would be perfect on all those cute Pug layouts you've been doing with Shien's gorgeous kit!

HollyS
02-17-2010, 11:19 AM
Oh this should be fun! Although sad since it will be Jenn's last one she hosts! Gonna try and make it :)

YEAH... hubby's gone to lunch with some friends.. peace and quiet to scrap in !! :biggrin:

emeraldsong
02-18-2010, 05:01 PM
How in the heck do you scrap and watch TV. or maybe I am just way to tired at the end of the day. . .

j_camargo6
02-18-2010, 05:02 PM
Are you ready???

Here are the general instructions, but I always forget something and somebody has a question, so be sure to speak up!!

And post as much as you'd like, because we'll have a Gift Certificate winner drawn from all the posts!

These prompts are made to be challenging, but not to be discouraging. If one of the suggestions completely confuses you, and you want to throw in the towel,
pull out your Creative License, and interpret it the way you'd like, or that fits with your layout. This exercise is to help you get out of your comfort zone,
stop over-analyzing every little thing, and get some pages done!! There are no Speed Scrap Police...at least not at my SS parties :) Take the opportunity to try
something new, and to stretch and grow. You never know...some of my favorite pages have been Speed Scrap pages!

donakat
02-18-2010, 05:02 PM
I'm thankful for a DVR to recorda ll I can't watch while scrapping!

agarzaldynrd
02-18-2010, 05:02 PM
I semi watch and do more listening than watching.

j_camargo6
02-18-2010, 05:03 PM
Here's NUMBER ONE (Faye, part of this is for you!)

1. One photo, with some kind of treatment. You'll be given an instruction for journaling later on, but just so you know, this can be about goodbye's, or the end of an era, or a new beginning, a door closing and a window opening....you catch my drift?

techie girl
02-18-2010, 05:03 PM
One thing I can't do id watch tv and scrap too even tho the tv is on and right behind me.I just listen with one ear.lol

emeraldsong
02-18-2010, 05:03 PM
Ah kinda like radio with pictures . . .

SparkysGirl

Hello everyone! I think it has been forever since I've been able to participate in a speed scrap. Not too sure about the "good-byes" hint though.

crystals622
02-18-2010, 05:04 PM
The trick is to not let the tv distract you. LOL I have to multi-task everything, if I didn't I'd never get to scrap!

Scrappinsass
02-18-2010, 05:05 PM
I"m with Anna... watch the monitor.. listen to the show... look up when I have to LOL

Jenn, I'm going to miss your speed scraps too. BUT, I must say that we've seen more of you around here since you decided to retire from designing than ever before. It's been kind of nice to see you posting so many layouts in the gallery and such.

j_camargo6

Okay - by treatment do you mean like recoloring, or a photo mask, etc?

2. Pick 1 paper, try and stay pretty basic with this step (I'd stear clear of brights or bold patterns).

techie girl

Okay, this may be a silly question but do I just wait for the next prompt or am I supposed to start my scrapping? I am so clueless...sorry!

No, you're just fine!

You can start assembling your layout, but you'll be given 7 prompts in all, so you won't want to get too far ahead or you might end up going back...does that make sense?

For the photo technique.....do anything you want...mask, texture, color....just NOT straight from the camera....give it a little something....

We've got two prompts posted so far:

1. One photo, with some kind of treatment. You'll be given an instruction for journaling later on, but just so you know, this can be about goodbye's, or the end of an era, or a new beginning, a door closing and a window opening....you catch my drift?

3. A second photo, but this one will be blended into the background. if you don't have a second photo, find an element (tag, flower, tree, etc) to blend into the background.

When I left the store today I had three pairs of pants from three manufacturers. They all fit the same way but are three different sizes. Size is only a number and usually wrong I found out.

Use blending modes, and play with the opacity... (I'm assuming you have PS or PSE which is TERRIBLE of me)

1. One photo, with some kind of treatment. You'll be given an instruction for journaling later on, but just so you know, this can be about goodbye's, or the end of an era, or a new beginning, a door closing and a window opening....you catch my drift?
2. Pick 1 paper, try and stay pretty basic with this step (I'd stear clear of brights or bold patterns).
3. A second photo, but this one will be blended into the background. if you don't have a second photo, find an element (tag, flower, tree, etc) to blend into the background
4. 2-5 flowers or natural elements
