As promised, I have this nice little graduation bundle for anyone preparing for a celebration this spring, or looking to scrap an old one. The kit is primarily black and white, and you can choose a Color Basics Kit to coordinate with the robes and tassels in your photos. Here are a few layouts I made with the Grad Bundle and corresponding color kits:
This week's layout comes from Harriett.
Please follow the directions carefully. Be specific and make a "good feeling sandwich" (something you like, something you'd improve, something you like). Comments that do not follow the guidelines may be deleted.
I'm hoping to make this a regular feature on the blog. If you'd like to submit a layout for critique please email it to me at email@example.com
This week I have a very exciting upload for you. Pixel Scrapper's first collaboration! Brooke and I decided to work together on this Color Basics Bundle when we realized we working on a similar idea. I was working on a graduation theme, and Brooke has been working on different sports themes, and together they both need a pop of color to represent school colors. A variety of choices are needed to cover all the different color options, and so our Color Basics were born. In the beginning our intention was for people to choose the kits that best represented their school colors, but now that I've seen the finished product I can imagine that it will be used far beyond our initial conception.
Brooke has already uploaded her Sports and Basketball bundles, and she has plans for several more sports down the road. My graduation bundle will be out later this week.
For a while now I've been seeing lots of clouds around. I think they are a great design element. They always seem to bring a restful, dreamy feel to wherever they're placed. I kept wanting to incorporate some clouds into my designs, and the arrival of spring brought the impetus to get me started. I'd still like to do some papers based on cloud photos, and who knows what other inspiration will strike, but Pixel Scrapper is off to a good start if you're looking for clouds.
If you're looking to use clouds in your layouts, here are a few spectacular layouts to get your started.
Try using clouds in your own designs.
Clouds bring the same restful feel to home design as well.
If Pixel Scrapper doesn't have enough clouds for you, here are some great digi scrapping resources I've found. And also I have a Pinterest board just for clouds.
Do you love clouds too? Or was that too much cloud for you? What other trends have you been noticing?
Pixel Scrapper Blog
Hi There! I’m Marisa Lerin and you’ll see me around at Pixel Scrapper a lot. I started this site in 2010 soon after I discovered a new love in digital scrapbooking. Pixel Scrapper has gone through some significant changes since that time and it’s grown into this lovely community site you are seeing now. I am daily surprised by the turn of life’s events that has led me down this path. If you're new to the site, welcome! Here are a few tidbits about me that I hope will help you get to know me better!
I’m originally from Minnesota, USA, but spent a good chunk of my childhood living abroad (in Bolivia and Hong Kong). I returned to Minnesota to attend university, got married and then moved overseas again (Korea, then Jordan and 1 year of traveling). My designs are heavily influenced by these many nomadic years. I am currently back in the USA, now living in the great state of Oregon!
I have no official training for what I’m doing, since I decided very wisely (haha) to study physics in university. I am always learning new things about digital scrapbooking, and this community has been immensely helpful for that!
If I manage to stop digital scrapbooking you will probably find me watching TV, reading or baking. I also enjoy writing for the blog here at Pixel Scrapper where I talk about whatever happens to be catching my fancy at the moment.
