TUTORIAL | TAG TRANSFORMATION

Hi Everyone! I'm here to stretch your stash and teach you how to Transform your Tags! This is Jenn, jk703, and I'm super happy to share this simple technique to make items you already have work for you and your layouts.


Most kits come with tabs, tags, word art, and many little tid bits. What if you could transform them so that no matter what was on them, you could use them for your layout? Here is one way of doing this, since as you are well aware, Photoshop seems to have oodles of ways to complete the same task!

Here are the tags that I am going to transform - they are from The Sparkly Season, and It's Not Black and White. By the way... these two kits could make magical layouts together! :P


First, select to use the Magic Wand tool from the Tools Palette. Also, press D so that the foreground color is black, and the background color is white.


You will then choose the tag that you are working with from the Layers Palette. Use the Magic Wand, and click on the white part of the tag. For this particular tag, I had to get up close to get all the black too. Once I had the whole shape, it had marching any like this:


Next, you will click on the little Post It note look alike on the bottom of the Layers Palette. This will add a layer above the tag.

Here is my Layers Palette:


Next, choose the new layer and then hit Command + Delete. This will fill the layer with white, the background color.


Here is my Layers Palette:


Next, just bring in a pretty pattern that you want to clip to the white mask of the tag. I chose the krafty tree paper for this tag.


This one has a floral paper clipped o the inner part of the tag.


Here, I've used a checkered pattern to fill out the while section of this tag.


All of the pretty little tags together! Cute, and the simple steps totally change how the tags can be used.


Here is my layout, where I changed the wired tag to the floral paper, and the date tag with a faint dotted paper. This layout uses The Sparkly Season and It's Not All Black and White, plus a template from Scrapping with Liz's DYD 2016 Album.


Thanks for visiting! Hope you enjoyed the technique I shared. :)

NEW: DECEMBER BYOC

December is here! Wow! While trying to come up with a theme for this month's BYOC I decided that after the winter and Christmas themed items that I already made I wanted to look forward to the New Year which is January which is THE MONTH OF CHALLENGES at the Lilypad.

I just love the MOC and am proud to say that I managed to finish all challenges for 2 years in a row!

Anyway... I really concentrated on making products that you will be able to use again and again,must haves for your go to stash. I came up with a super neutral set of white papers, an eye catching stamped alpha and a pack of easy to use winter wordarts!

WINTER TALK | WORD ART
Super versatile set of 30 unique winter themed wordarts [35 in total] plus 5 stamps to add that extra little oomph!

PRETTY PAGES FROM THE PINK REPTILE GALLERY | by GAËLLE


Hello scrap friends! Gaelle here! I spent some time in the Pink Reptile Gallery looking at all the lovely pages that have been popping up for the month of November. So much beauty in there! Here are three picks that I wanted to share with you for the month:

by Silent Ranks
On this page, I love the papers strips and the place of the journaling.

by dotcomkari
The design of this page is just awesome. I love the contrast between the b/w pictures and the colors of the kits.

by Louso
The use of the white space is just perfect. The messy strings and the writting brush give a cute touch to the page.

That's it for this addition of Pretty Pages. Don't forget to spread some love for these talented scrappers and if you are posting your pages to the PRD gallery, you might just find your page here next time!
