“She Blooms” digital layout, by Krista Lund.
I was drawn to the bright, bold colors in the IF She Blooms digital collection. After downloading and unzipping all the digital files, I opened all the paper files in Photoshop to choose which ones I wanted to use. The decision was tough, so I chose a template that allowed me to use many of the pretty papers!
I love the wavy lines in the background paper and thought it would be fun to have my journaling follow the same curvy path. I used the Pen Tool in Photoshop to achieve this. Using the Color Picker tool I recolored my font to match the colors in the layout.
This Collection comes with a lot of pretty Journaling Cards. These are so versatile and don't always need to go in a pocket. I resized this card and tucked it behind a flower cluster to create interest.
I like to cluster a bunch of elements together to create a focal point around my title. I used Word Art from the kit for my actual title. Shadows help give my layers a more realistic look. I have a set of Shadow Styles I use on every layout. These help the design process go faster because it is just one click of a button in Photoshop.

"At The Zoo" digital layout, by Megan Klauer.
I just love this time of year! The weather is warmer and the kids are so excited about the school year coming to an end. And much like many other parents of Kindergarteners; we made our way to the local zoo last week for the annual Field Trip. I was lucky enough to be a chaperon and captured many shots along the way.
The first page I created in Project Life style and layered lots of the embellishments from the Zoo Crew collection. I was able to create this page in a short amount of time and still include much of our day!
With the next page I wanted to focus on Ella's favorite part of the zoo; the giraffes!
I love to use large photos in my layouts. They are the perfect focal point and provide great "white" space to include the journaling. I then added a smaller photo of Ella next to the Passport Africa sign that leads into the giraffe area.
I highlighted that area of the page by layering multiple Zoo Crew elements.
At the bottom of the page I tried my hand at mimicking the look of torn paper by added one of the Border elements and used the eraser tool to roughly "cut" the edges off. This was such a fun and easy technique that I'm definitely going to use again! What's your go to digital technique? I'd love to know!
