Hi everyone! Happy Wednesday! I don't know about you but I surely don't know whether I'm coming or going these days! Hubby is working all kinds of hours so I'm going at it alone with my full-time job, gds, and the kids! Tonight's speed scrap is a nice diversion so thank you for hanging out with me!

I'll give you 7 steps over the next hour (every 10 minutes or so) and then you'll have an hour after that to finish your layout and upload to our Speed Scrap gallery.

Remember to post often in this thread to increase your chances of randomly winning a $5 coupon good for anything in my store!

And to keep up, the Refresh button in your browser is your friend!!!

As always, I'm always open to creative interpretation and I'm not going to count your items to make sure they match the steps given! So relax and have fun...that's what it's all about!

08-18-2010, 05:01 PM
OK, I'm here and I hope I can keep up!!! I really need to start getting to bed earlier now that I'm up at 4:00 am again!!! I don't even remember what the clue was but I'll figure it out!!!

Oh, hi everyone!! Sorry to be venting so early in the speed scrap!!

Here's another step:

Step 1:Choose 1 background paper and optionally choose another paper and reduce and rotate as you wish and layer on top of your background paper
Step 2: In center of layout horizontally, place an element or two such as a paper strip, straight ribbon, beads, etc. stretching the width of your layout.

I'm pretty sure she meant top of.

donakat

Holly meant "on top of"

HollyS
08-18-2010, 05:23 PM
yep, that's what I meant! Hi ladies who have just joined us! No worries, you can catch up :)

Here's another step:

Step 1:Choose 1 background paper and optionally choose another paper and reduce and rotate as you wish and layer on top of your background paper
Step 2: In center of layout horizontally, place an element or two such as a paper strip, straight ribbon, beads, etc. stretching the width of your layout.
Step 3: Frame 2 photos in square format and 1 photo in circle shape

crystals622

Man, sometimes I do miss Photoshop Elements! It had an easy red eye removal menu item! Oh no, CS2 doesn't! Manual here I go!

crystals622
08-18-2010, 05:28 PM
good luck with that Holly. Manual red eye can be a challenge for me sometimes.

SparkysGirl

Man, sometimes I do miss Photoshop Elements! It had an easy red eye removal menu item! Oh no, CS2 doesn't! Manual here I go!

I can't believe CS2 doesn't have a red eye removal tool ... I'd fire up elements and fix the red eyes, save, and then drag it into CS2 ...

but I like doing things the hard way ... :wink:

SparkysGirl
08-18-2010, 05:32 PM
ok I am back...trying to get caught up.

YAY! You can do it!

HollyS
08-18-2010, 05:33 PM
Ok, I fixed the red eye! ugh..not fun!

Step 1:Choose 1 background paper and optionally choose another paper and reduce and rotate as you wish and layer on top of your background paper
Step 2: In center of layout horizontally, place an element or two such as a paper strip, straight ribbon, beads, etc. stretching the width of your layout.
Step 3: Frame 2 photos in square format and 1 photo in circle shape
Step 4: Arrange square photo in center of layout and circle photos on both sides of center photo.

Arizona Girl
08-18-2010, 05:33 PM
I use CS2 its one of the options under the bandaid (heal) just make sure you're on the correct layer.

agarzaldynrd
08-18-2010, 05:34 PM
Did you mean the circle in the middle with the 2 squares on the sides?? Or did you mean 2 circles and one square?

Arizona Girl
08-18-2010, 05:35 PM
WAIT!!!!
Do you mean place the circle in the middle and the two squares on the sides? Because you said the opposite of that, but I have 2 rectangle photos and one round.

crystals622
08-18-2010, 05:36 PM
t.
Step 3: Frame 2 photos in square format and 1 photo in circle shape
Step 4: Arrange square photo in center of layout and circle photos on both sides of center photo.

I'm confused. one square and 2 circles or the other way around?

HollyS
08-18-2010, 05:40 PM
WAIT!!!!
Do you mean place the circle in the middle and the two squares on the sides? Because you said the opposite of that, but I have 2 rectangle photos and one round.

Um, yes that's what I meant!

I', sorry I missed this too! Too much on my plate last night. My son had a big road hockey game - his grocery store against another. He's feeling a little sore this morning! So I had to go and watch and take pics - I'll have to scrap a page of it come to think of it! The pages just look fabulous ladies! Way to go.
