Scrap’n Tips: Templates or Sketches

by admin on September 10, 2009

Templates or Sketches is simply a wonderful way to scrap.  Why?  For some it is hard to come up with a page design.  When one has a template or sketch then it becomes easier because the page layout has been started for you.  All you need to do is add the papers, elements, journaling, photographs, etc.  to this template or sketch.

Our site has twenty wonderful templates or sketches for you to download for Free.  New ones are added weekly.  Almost everyone of them has been provided by msbrad (Michelle).  If you are looking for ideas of a page layout then you should check her templates out. There is plenty of wonderful ones there, a great way to help one to scrap!

Go here to see all the ones available:

Below is some of the ones that are in the shoppe:

Photo Tip: Move In Close

by Sonya Murphy on September 9, 2009

Try moving in closer to the subject by using your optical or digital zoom lenses. (You can zoom in using software to crop out unwanted areas of a photo.) Why is a close up so effective? It is effective because it takes out the clutter in the image. The eye can focus on the main subject without all the distractions. This technique is especially effective for close-ups of peoples faces. Why? There is just something drawing about looking at peoples faces especially when they are smiling or reflecting on something. It is even more true on little children’s faces. So why not try some close-ups and use it on this week’s Sketch of the Week LO.
