Today Karen asked me to choose a favorite from her shop and show you layouts created using the collection. Trust me, it wasn’t easy; but it’s my job so I present to you inspiration using the collection Color Outside the Lines.
Karen agreed to apply special pricing to the collection of my choosing so I hope it’s one of your favorites too! Save 40% on the Kit and 57% on the Collection at:
As always the collection is packed. I love the hand-drawn figures and the word art which includes some awesome quotes. This collection is perfect for your artwork from a child’s simple drawings to your more complex artistic endeavors. I could continue; but instead I’ll show you just a few layouts demonstrating the versatility of this collection.
I love this artsy page, Freedom, from judy in SD. This collection makes it easy to create an Art Journal page. The word art includes the paint, butterfly and quote. It’s the perfect foundation for the page which is completed by adding paper, additional paint and just a few elements.
I really like the split framing in Budding Artist by kabrak. Placing the crayons diagonally across from the banner moves the eye to the center of the layout where the photo is the focal point. I love the cluster, which includes hand-drawn and realistic flowers. The scribbled background is prefect for her theme.
Sometimes you get lucky and you have photos that match a collection perfectly. That’s definitely the case in Happy at the Beach by Norma. She also used split framing, but it looks completely different here, vertically oriented and with smaller photos, one per frame. Her clusters are gorgeous, and I really like the way she shows only three of the watercolor paints, retaining her color scheme. The word art completes the layout perfectly.
Johnny by Ozegirl is an amazing page. I really like the monochromatic look with the red crayon which appears to be signing the artwork. The black squiggle pops, and I love the extreme shadowing on the frame bordering the actual artwork. The newsprint edger, also re-colored to match, frames the layout perfectly.
I really love the layout design in Sisters Forever by PamR. The borders are so pretty. I like the framing and the slight tilt to the photo, as well as the gorgeous clustering just below and behind the photo. If you like this layout as much as I do, you can scraplift it now by participating in the Scraplift Challenge at TDC.
Did you miss this freebie when it was previously offered? Karen has made it available for you again! This gorgeous clustered frame was created for you by Renee. Just click on the image below to download.
I hope you have enjoyed my post and that I have inspired you. Thanks and have a great week!
Whether you are a layout artist or a designer, do you find yourself spending too much time searching for a particular kit, paper, embellishment, or Photoshop tool that you need?
I have heard from so many of you that the answer to this question is YES!
I’ve spent the last several weeks putting together a course that will help
- get your digi-kits and supplies organized
- prevent you from making duplicate purchases in the future
- allow you to easily find exactly what you need WHEN you need it
- ease your frustration
- and give you MORE TIME to actually scrap or design
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF PRE-RELEASE PRICING
Retail Pricing of the Get Organized course is $29. But I am offering a 50% Savings with the use of a special Pre-Release Coupon. In order to get the discount you must use this link for your purchase. This link will take you to the page with the special 50% pricing.
This class is in both video and PDF format. We all have different learning styles, so choose what works best for you. To get the most out of the class, I recommend sitting back and watching the video, then going back and working along with me, in either video or PDF format.
- You will have access to the video so you can watch it over and over again, as you need to. And of course, you may always download the PDF to your computer.
- You will have access to a private Get Organized Facebook Group, where you will be able to ask questions, get answers, and associate with other ACDSee users
- To access the class you will sign into your Facebook page, just as you always do. You will be able to access the class through a super cool Facebook app! I love that it’s so easy! No more wasting your time when you are waiting for an appointment, for example. Just access your class on your Smart Phone or iPad and spend your “waiting time” learning!
Register now for class, and you will receive an email when the class is released on June 1st.
I truly believe this class will be helpful for you, if you are looking for a way to spend more time scrapping and/or designing than you spend searching!
If you are not currently an ACDSee user, you may download a Trial Version of ACDSee 20 here. There are many versions of ACDSee. I use ACDSee20 and that is what I will be using for the “Get Organized Class.” Pro versions offer more advanced editing capabilities, which you may not need if you use Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, or another editing program.
This is an affiliate link. That means if you download the trial and decide to purchase the software, they will pay me a small fee for referring you. I never promote any program that I don’t use for my own personal or business needs. I have used ACDSee for 6 years, and truly could not get my work done without it.
ACDSee is currently having a 41% sale on ACDSee Version 20 – which is all you need. The regular price is $59.99 but with their current sale, the price is $34.95. This sale expires May 16th. I will update this blog as additional promotions become available.
I’m sure they will have other sales, but since this is such a good one, I wanted to pass along the information to you, in case you are interested.
PLEASE NOTE; ACDSEE IS A WINDOWS BASED PROGRAM ONLY. They do have a Mac Beta version available, but I was told by an ACDSee representative that when released, the Mac version would be “quite pricey.” The Mac Beta Version is available HERE. Just scroll down a bit to see it.
I hope to see you in class!
