I'm a freelance editor, writer and photographer. I picked up cardmaking as an art hobby more than 25 years ago. That led to scrapbooking, but really took off when digital scrapbooking software started popping up on the market. Thanks to PixelScrapper, I have honed my design skills and do some small design jobs for hire, along with my regular editing and writing. I live in the beautiful state of Montana where I work from home and volunteer for a local non-profit called the Dylan Steigers Concussion Project. I also teach water aerobics at our local Women's Club. (Otherwise, I might sit on the couch all day designing!). Besides a passion for photography, I love sports, flyfishing, cardmaking, gardening, and walking. My goal is to try to learn a new technique or enhance existing ones every month so I can give back to this wonderful community of scrapbookers through the PS blog trains.
Type of ProjectDigital Scrapbook Layout
My daughter and her friend scored tickets to the 2012 semifinal at American Idol, season 11. I loved the lines in Merisa Lerin's layout template 04. For this scraplift, I wanted to do a minimally embellished layout, but wanted to do a pattern of some sort, and this template fit the bill. I adjusted the layout by erasing some objects, adding a few more on different layers, and enlarging two of them to accommodate two photo masks, but still keeping the diagonal look. I used a painted grunge border by justjaimee.com as a base, then added my own to work with this specific layout. This is the first page in a two-page spread.
