This month, we'll be utlizing the import page function and learning how to take a page from one scrapbook and use it as a new one.

For the challenge you are to:

1. Use the existing multi page template and focus on one of the pages. You can copy and paste elements from the other pages in to the one you are focusing on and work on making a new template to share with the group.
2.If you are a designing type, make elements to match the page and bring them on to that page as well.
3. Make a new document and "import" that single page.
4. Export as a template.
5. Share with the group.

6. Throw tomatoes at Julie for not expaining this yesterday. :lol

HERE YOU GO!!!

Exactly what are we supposed to do with this challenge? There are several templates - are we supposed to make new ones with parts of them? Or recolor? Help - I'm confused!

Hey Julie! Good question!! (I try my best to live up to the "challenge" part! ha!)

This one is packaged as a template.

Here are the items I made for my first layout. The inner circle of the frame I made just by removing the center of a circle and the edge of the frame I made using "superformula" filter by Richard Rosenman. I can't remember for sure which site I got the Layer Style from that I used on the frame but it is Style "mg44". Thanks to the which ever site it was from. I used the same style on the words. The font is "Alfredo's Dance" from "dafont". The ferns were a brush from obsidiandawn.com.

Haven't done a challenge in a while, too busy! But - I took time today with my 3 older kids at grandma's (yippee!) to make this page! My 2 year old has been bugging me to no end, I don't know why but this page took me way longer than normal to do! The flowers to the side were made with Autisticwonder's shape masks availabe somewhere in the sharing corner....

Hope you like - I made it in 8.5 x 11 and transformed it to 8 x 8 for those of you who like square.....

Finally got some inspiration ..... I took loads of photos of Amy in the garden on the 1st and every single one has a halo effect :( .... played about with one of them and it dont look too bad.

Everything is from the kit supplied except the stems for the flowers, I had a play with hubby's wacom pen pad. Man its weird looking somewhere totally different to where you are drawing.

Well here is my 1st template for this challenge .... oh and I also learnt how to import a single page LOL ...... I never knew I could do that.

Hey Onie THANKS soooo much! I am trying to master the Gimp... I have learned quite a few things in there, like making transparencies, and tonight I just got picked up an airbrush a started painting, I was in awe, I did play around for a few hours, just for that one flower. It is kinda like painting with Donna Dewberry... Dont know if you know who she is, but she is a very good painter.
AND BTW Get the gimp, you have nothing to lose and Its FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!! :D :D LOL

I downloaded it but for the life of me, I have no clue how to come up with stuff from no where! Do you just start freehanded or what? Did you start off by saying you wanted to make a flower? Or did you get some kind of templete to build the idea?

crops2dawn
04-05-2007, 10:02 PM
This is what I did, in gimp you go to the top I think it says files, then hit open, from there you browse your computer, I brought in something- it wasnt what I wanted so I just made it into a transparency, then got a brush, figured out how to use the paint, and started playing, For your first time open a something that has a dark background and a lite object.. When you get that far I will walk ya through the rest of it, its not that hard, once you start to understand it, I hate reading tutorials so I just play until I find something that I like.

Well I finally got it reduced enough (...remembering January Challenge) I started with "Angelwithin's Cream layout". I add a basket, a real bee from my garden last year, a border, and a new paper. I will put more in another post.

sacannon
04-05-2007, 10:58 PM
Here are 6 more"

I took the button from Angelwithins layout and made it oval and used as a mat under my picture of Kari. I also used a shape edge effect on it that I got from a site (don't remember) on about.com, the designer was Chastain. Then I took the same button (oval shaped) into adobe and cut off the bottom of it to make it shaped like a niche and used a shape effect from Harry's filters on it. I put my placemat (that I made in the first layout I did for the challenge) at the bottom of the niche to give it depth. (at least attempted to). Then I swapped out the flower for a real daffodil from my yard (still blooming if the frost didn't kill them today).

The butterflies and lettering are shapes, and I used Crop's paper for them. The lettering was the American Letter Shapes, one of the butterflies was from Angelwithin, the other was in the object shape folder, not sure who did that one.

sacannon
04-05-2007, 11:06 PM
Ok, here is the last couple plus a few extra papers that I didn't use. At least yet.

I have to admit that this months has been harder since we've had no kit to work with. I'm not able to make embies so I depend on other peoples embies to us in my layouts. I have been using Shapes that have been given to make frames and flowers!

I hope you all like it!

You are doing a outstanding job with them Onie!

sacannon
04-07-2007, 09:45 PM
Great job onie. Have you tried pulling the other templates in to copy the embies from thiers to yours. For anyone unsure, you just add a page (click "page" then "add" (pick one of the templates), then click on the embie you want, right click, click copy, then go back to your other page, click "edit" then "paste". That's how you get the embies. If the template is locked down, go to "edit" and click on unlock.

OnieRN
04-07-2007, 10:09 PM
I've actually used that method to grab embies but this month we don't seem to have many embies to grab except flowers and flower pots. I find other things that I like but I have no idea where I got them, so I try to stay away from them because of copy writes.

Thanks for the suggestions! :)

Here is the link to my layout:

The word "Spring" was from Marion's template. and the flowers were from the original template kit. Here are the things I added. (I adjusted color within SBM on some things).

Couldn't make up my mind what color frame to use, so I made a bunch of the same thing and kept swapping them out till I decided on the white one. Here are the rest of them.

sacannon
04-07-2007, 11:24 PM
Here are a couple of more flowers. Thanks Onie, I will try to make some other things later.

OnieRN

The April Challenge items are all so inspiring and FUN...I've not followed the instructions for this template but just wanted to say..WOW love the goodies and here is a little something..

Fisher, John's CCI dog, passed away yesterday..So It's been hard this past week with him getting so ill and having to make the decision to put him to sleep. He had a tumor on his heart and lungs that was not diagnosed correctly so it was too late by the time we found out what it really was..The kids were in Kentucky for Spring break..so the news has yet to hit them. I stayed behind to tend to Fisher.

I'm grateful for the atonement. I believe animals go to heaven!!! Special dog!! He is the dog in John's winning January Contest in the gallery for those that aren't familiar with FISHER.

HUGS GUYS!!!

sacannon
04-08-2007, 12:22 PM
This is a wonderful template wonder. So sorry about Fisher, I know he was a great help to John and I know he will be missed.

Here is some more paper for the taking.

OnieRN
04-08-2007, 02:27 PM
How do you save the Shapes you make? I've made shapes with papers and used them as I go in the layout. I have never figure out how to pull a paper up, cut out a shape then save that shape without putting it into a layout!

Hope that makes sense! :confused:

*eng*
04-08-2007, 02:29 PM
Awesome stuff Sue, Onie, Wonder. That is as far back as I've got today!

Wonder so sorry about Fisher. Irreplaceable, but I hope somehow that you find somethig to help the awful void there must be at home. It is hard to lose any pet but a lifeline as well is so much more traumatic. I do feel for you.

I began with the cream paper. I created the frame shape with GIMP and then used the April colors to color the frames.....Nothing fancy and my edges are not smooth......(no patience..) I do appreciate all the embellishements everyone makes all the time! I will hopefully be investing in Phototshop Elements soon...

The pages and elements everyone has completed so far has been awesome....

Again I used the word "Spring" from Marion's template". Here are the things I added.
sacannon, I love your work... I am using your template this morning.

Dogwoods are blooming in Atlanta right now. I was wondering if you can help me do a dogwood flower like your daisy... pink and/or white dogwood would be awesome... I like the look of your daisy.

If you are busy, please do not worry. If someone else has seen a dogwood flower emb, I'd love to get one. TANX

Thank you so much everyone for the lovely templates & embs... Hope I can work on one to share with y'all this month.

The layouts completed this month are spectacular as usual - great job all.
The items that have been shared are also greatly appreciated.

I'm behind this month, as usual, lately with everything. Started to think about what I wanted to do and then ended up making some papers and elements so I would have something different to use. Thumbnails for the bows and ornaments are just a sampling of what is in the zip packs.
So will share the items first and then start scrapping.
Incase anyone would like to use, please do. It's just a small offering in appreciation for the talented and generous people on this site.

Hopefully, there will be something here to see. I've never posted a page here before and I had plenty of problems just doing that. The font is CK Windsong. I'm afraid I don't know where I got the little floral border from. But I am only using for myself. I got the bee tracks from Becca (Cntrywoman).....thank you for it. It took me longer to figure out how to export and post it here than it did to make the page......lol. My hair is a lot thinner as a result.

The picture is of some paphiopedilum blooms in my greenhouse. Everyone is very creative and doing great pages. I'm afraid that my abilities are very limited.

I need to figure out how to keep track of who did what, in case I want to use it for a template to share. How do you all keep track of this? I have downloaded quite a bit of things just from this challenge thread. Thanks ladies!!! There is just too many to mention, but let me give a couple.... Fiona, love the trellis....I'm a floral person....lol. Sue, I like the Niagara Falls wording over the falls graphic. Geez.....I like so many; each and every one was a treasure to look at.

Verleen, good going with writing it down!!;) to remember everything is almost impossible, thats why I like when they put their name on it when they share it, but if they dont I sometimes just rename it and add their name, or if its alot of things I just make a folder for that person, Say like sue... she does put her initial on everything and makes it alot easier to give her credit... but this girl she is on a roll... so she got her very own folder.. See Sue your SPECIAL! LOL
I have been playing myself... trying flowers again... the one that is in a silver can be colored in the sepia section to any color that fits your layout! but the rest I was just playing around... Hope you enjoy!
OH NOooooo my files are to big!
Ok peeps my first time using the zip to upload, hope it works, if not will someone let me know! Thanks!

Please note** Do not right click these, they are just the jpeg image, in the zip they are png!!

Don't mean to tongue tie anyone here. To be honest, my throat is still SO SORE that I can not talk. I'm on my antiobiotics and taking Night Qual too. I am finding that by scrapping, I am able to keep some sense of the day. I will scrap a little then rest a little. Personally, I would rather be feeling better!

It has been fun for me this month but I would rather take care of some daily buiness, such as grocery shopping, laundry, tune up on car etc. I do have other things that need to be done but I just can not get to them due to lack of engery. So I scrap instead.

Don't mean to tongue tie anyone here. To be honest, my throat is still SO SORE that I can not talk. I'm on my antiobiotics and taking Night Qual too. I am finding that by scrapping, I am able to keep some sense of the day. I will scrap a little then rest a little. Personally, I would rather be feeling better!

It has been fun for me this month but I would rather take care of some daily buiness, such as grocery shopping, laundry, tune up on car etc. I do have other things that need to be done but I just can not get to them due to lack of engery. So I scrap instead.

Well, take care of yourself, get plenty of rest so that you have the get up and go energy that you want and need.

Your LO's are great, thanks,

Beautiful papers Sacannon. This should give Onie enough to scrap through the end of this week. Onie your on roll! It's a shame you have to be sick to get the time to scrap. Hope you feel better soon.

I hope you enjoy the page. I had a hard time with this one because it was too big to post. For the life of me, I have no idea what made this one so big?!?!?! I kept going back and shrinking stuff and trying to tweak it. FINALLY got it to fit.

Onie, I checked and the yellow paper I apparently missed when I shrunk the papers down. I did the others at 4 x 4 and 100 resolution. The yellow was higher. So I shrunk it down and I am reposting for others.

Anyone who saved this paper previously may want to delete that one, and save this one. Hopefully this size will work better.

That would explain why it was a big file! I haven't figured out that part of doing these pages yet. I just enjoy doing the pages!

Thanks a bunch!

Well gang, I've been sleeping pretty much all day long and a lot yesterday. Lots of water and my medications. I rested all weekend except for all the layouts I did. I hope that I am finally on the mend from this Streph. I am not the type to be down sick but this really knocked me for a loop. I've got another 3 days of antiobiotics to go. Throat still a little sore. I tried to call my daughter on the phone but just couldn't talk so I told her that I would have to call her ack again in a few days.

Well I made a personal challenge to do one layout a day for the month. I am going to try to keep up with it. That means the month is half over so..... Sue keep me stocked with embies and paper and Carol you need to keep me on track.......LOL. Has anyone made any papers with soft prints like flowers? I love all the flowers this month and I personally love lace! LOL

Seriously..:D I started out tonight trying to do the mid month challenge, that had me so confused I was sitting here singing la ala lalalalala to myself, then I got oh, try this, no do this.. I have a million different pieces and they didn't work together at all, I salvaged a few pieces and made a layout, won't work at all for the mid-month challenge, More work to figure them out, can't figure out what I am suppose to do .,.... so I am hoping that this works for the April challenge.. I know... you're proabaly beating your knees with laughter, me to .. me too.. so before I tra laa laa my silly self to bed:p , I wanted to share, it won't hurt my feelings at all if it isn't quite right.. but there might be something you can use in it. Well as always thanks for indulging my creative learning.
Much Love and Prayers.

Sue, I went back through 20 pages and can not find the posting where the embie was posted. I feel terrible..... :(

FYI, I'm so terribly sorry for goofing up on crediting the right person for this. It may be Mary's...... Please accept my appology and know that I love it! Thank you! :)

A link to my layout.

I seem to be stuck on the same colors, but I made this one a little darker. Here is the new item. I used two in the layout to do the border.

Thanks Sue for the darker color. I know I've been trying to do as many variety variations of solids and prints, as possible. I can't wait to use this paper. I've had a blast with all the papers and embies that you've done for this challenge. A Big thanks for the ones given by Mary too!!!!!


Your LO is adorable too!!!!!

I am wanting to work on a template using Granny's afgan. I am not having any luck getting it to work. I thought it was a shape or a mask/grayscale. I tried to use it as a shape but I only got one big square. How do I put different papers into each square? I need some instructions here!!!!

Any help would be appreciated!

Onie:
I think it is just an embellishment. If you want one of the squres to be a different color, you may have to resize a paper scrap to lay on that square.
