Speed Scrap and a Freebie

Pin It!
I just finished a SS at Ginger Scrap with Jen .
Here are the steps:

1. Pick one photo. Extract something from the photo.
Then, crop the same photo to 11x11.
Duplicate the layer, and turn the top layer black and white or sepia.
Then, reduce the opacity of the B&W or Sepia layer, so that you can see the color coming though the black and white picture. Between 40-70 percent.
2. Pick one background paper.
Put your 11x11 picture on top of it at an angle (I angled mine at 5 degrees) and then put your extracted or cropped item on top of the BIG picture.
3. Make a small (3 item) element cluster near your extracted photo.
4. Apply your shadows. Make them lighter than the default color...
If your extracted (or cropped) photo is on top of your BIG photo completely, it does not need a drop shadow.
If part of it is hanging off of the edge, that it the only part that needs a shadow.
5. For your title/slash journaling, pick a quote that has something to do with you picture. This is my favorite quote resource. Word Art it up.
6. Date your LO, save it, post it, and reply back here with your finished LO.

And here is my LO

I am getting addicted to SS, can you tell?

Here is the freebie that I promised... another QP using the Peachy Keen Kit by Manda's Scrappin' Creations

Speed Scrap #28

Pin It!
What a great SS! I missed you there...
Here the steps:
(port: Que SS genial! Senti sua falta por lá... Aqui estão as instruções)

*******Step 1: Choose five papers - two for your background and three cut into different sized circle.
*******Step 2: Choose a frame for one picture - Place the frame on your layout, it needs to hang off of one edge of your page.
*******Step 3: Cluster two ribbons, a string and a brad or button in one corner of your layout
*******Step 4: Layer your circles around your frame, they must all be connected by at least one "edge"
*******Step 5: In the vicinity of your circles and frame add a bow, two buttons/brads and one element of your choosing
*******Step 6: Add a title - it must be split onto two lines. Use an alpha for at least part of it, or all of it if you want.
******* Step 7: Finishing touches, add journaling and a date if you like, throw in a few shadows for good measure and save. Upload it to the gallery and link it back to the forum. You have an hour from now to finish your LO.

Here my LO (port: Aqui meu LO)

Speed Scrap #27

Pin It!
Awesome SS I had a lot of fun, but I got to tell you, this one was hard for me... I knew what photos I wanted to use but I had a hard time finding a kit and colors that I felt was right!
Those were the instructions:
Step 1~ Pick 3 papers
Step 2~ Layer 1 paper as the background, then layer the other 2 over it however you wish
Step 3~ Pick 3 pictures
Step 4~ Pick one of your pictures and mat it. Enlarge the picture and the duplicate it. Then Place the 2 pictures on your LO so they looked stacked
Step 5~ Crop or resize the other 2 pictures smaller that thematted one. Arrange them close to the matted pics
Step 6~ Add some clusters around your Matted pics. You must include an initial of some sort in one of your clusters
Step 7~ Use some string with your title. Add anything you think your LO may need. Upload to the STS gallery and don't forget to leave love all around!

And my LO: (click on the image to see the credits)
See you next time! That will be on Sunday, May 24 at 3pm (EST)!
