Hi, everyone! Just a quick little question. Would anyone be interested in doing a layout challenge? I would love to be able to see and share layout made with my kits. Let me know what y'all think!



  1. I am still at the bottom of the learning curve on making layouts, unfortunately.

  2. It would be great. I make printables, if you include them in your layout challenge, and if I can share them, that's ok for me. ;)

    1. Hey, I've seen some of your bags, boxes and cards ... I love above all.
      This Christmas I used a kit you did the previous year with a Birth, pillow box was perfect to wrap the soap bars, and everything your little card game. The goodies were perfect thanks to you.

    2. Thanks Rosi H. You are very welcome.

  3. I could use the .png files for the alphas. I can't use them in sheet for. These are great!

  4. i would love to do a challenge! message me on Pixel Scrapper if you do! I don't get the chance to look through everyone's blogs very often..

  5. Hi Pauline
    I wonder handle graphic design, someone tell me how to learn online, because what I do now is print, cut, paste ... it takes a long time, many ink cartridges and supplies to spend just to play are spent. If I knew it all digitally would love to participate in these challenges.
    6 years ago I started to get sick, I have Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, every day I have less energy to do the things which I loved to do, (soaps, natural cosmetics, ointments, massage oils), and secondly I spend more and more time watching your work, following trains, downloading and decompressing files, placing them ... and admiring the beautiful things that you do. I would love to learn how.
    This challenge has 3 major obstacles:
    - Find a teacher.
    - The time differences, (I live in Spain)
    - Ei language I do not speak English, use the Google Translator ... and sometimes makes mischief.
    What do you think as a challenge?
    Greetings from the land of far far away.

    1. Hi Rosi,
      I don't know why nobody has responded yet, but I'll try to help you out as much as I can. I don't speak Spanish, so it'll be a little challenging for me.

      Basically, to make layouts with these papers and elements, you will make an image file in a graphics editing program which supports layers. The file measurements will be the printed size of your finished page at 300dpi quality, so a standard 12"x12" scrapbooking page will be 3600x3600dpi. Add the papers and elements you want to use, stacking them up one per layer, and resize and rotate them until it all looks good. Then add drop shadows to everything, save it in a format that supports layers (.psd, .tiff, etc.), and print it out. You can save a .jpg to post on the internet if you want, too, but do that as a copy, so that you can edit the layered file if you discover a typo or something!

      You use less ink and paper since you only need to print one page, and don't have to use as much of your energy getting supplies out, cutting them, and putting everything away, so it could be easier to do with your fatigue. I know I've done much more scrapping since making the move to digital for that exact reason, though I have a different chronic illness.

      I'll try to find you some Spanish-language tutorials; I know there are some on the web. :)
