Digital Layout Ettes Dude Collection
Here is another layout featuring a kit from The Ettes and Company. This collection is called Dude and it is super cute. Perfect for little boy, kid, and outdoor layouts. I really liked the shades of blue in this collection and the monsters are adorable!
The first page of this double page spread is scraplifted from The Ettes and Company design team. I fell in love with the layout and had to recreate it myself. The second page is a live template that I used in my CM Storybook software. I apologize I can't remember where I got the live template from so if anyone recognizes it then please let me know so I can give credit where credit is due.
The only other special technique I used for this double page spread is adding "glitter" to a few of my embellishments (bracket, flowers, and hearts). This is a very simple trick but adds some really nice texture to your page.
To add "glitter" to an element you need to select the element then go to your format ribbon, select "surfaces", choose the first surface (block), and move the amplification bar all the way to the right (10). This should give you a "glitterized" effect. If it doesn't show enough then you can always repeat the steps to get a more grainy texture. Thanks goes out to Macey Goode for sharing this neat trick with the CM Digi scrapping community.
I apologize for the blurred photos but I thought since there were other children in the photo other than my own, and I didn't ask permission to post their pictures I would blur them out.
I am a SAHM to three beautiful girls. I am obsessed with scrapbooking and cardmaking. I just recently have started to dabble in digital scrapbooking. My software of choice is Creative Memories Storybook Creator Plus 3.0. My other interests are camping, hiking, running, photography, and spending time with my family and friends.
Want handmade greeting cards or scrabooks but don't have time?
If you would love to have handmade greeting cards, custom made invitations, or one of a kind scrapbook layouts but don't have the time to do them yourself I would be happy to help you out.
I currently take orders for custom made greeting cards for any occasion. I can personalize them to your specifications and you have your choice of digital or traditional designs.
I also create personalized scrapbooks and individual layouts both digitally and traditionally. I only use top quality archival grade products. Your memories are safe with me.
