Welcome to my stop on the Club Scrap Artist Team Challenge Blog Hop! Today I’m using elements from some of Club Scrap’s digital kits to create a few “mash up” scrapbook layouts of my sweet nephew Gus’ first birthday party!
A year goes by fast, it feels like we were just waiting for baby Gus to get here. He had a fun party with grandparents, cousins, aunts and uncles, friends and lots of presents!
While Gus opened gifts, his cousins and friends had fun on the giant slide.
Ellie Belle took over the photography and captured some great shots! The boys wanted to make a slo-mo video and Ellie obliged…
Her pictures turned out so good and she’s such a good “big cuz” to all the little cousins!
We had a happy day celebrating sweet Gus!
This month’s challenge is a “Mash Up” of items from at least two past Club Scrap® collections. I used items from six different Club Scrap Digital kits, a Quick Drop Digital Layout (QDDL) and ALSB (Assembly Line Scrapbooking) instructions from the current month’s kit Adirondacks. If you happened to miss out on some of Club Scrap’s paper kits, you should really check out all the corresponding digital kits! All you need is your computer and a software program that works with layers, JPG and PNG file types. Club Scrap recommends Adobe’s Photoshop Elements (tutorials are geared to this program) and GIMP (a free alternative program). Click here for a quick video tutorial on using GIMP with Club Scrap’s QDDLs. I won’t lie to you, there is a bit of a learning curve when using digital scrapbooking kits. But once you’ve mastered the basics, learning new techniques is easy AND you can print your projects and use the kit elements over and over. If you can do it with paper, you can do it with these digital scrapbooking kits! Click here to receive a free mini digital kit download and try it out for yourself!
