September Templates At Scrapper's Guide.


This month's kit from Gina Miller is so versatile that you'll have trouble deciding what to do with it. No you won't really! Because we do all the hard work for you. So many Quick Page Templates to choose from, not to mention four lovely new video tutorials to get you started on new techniques. If you have ever wondered how to use the Gradient Tool then wonder no more. Linda and I have created two tutorials specializing in creative ways to use Gradient techniques to make accents for your pages. There's also a great tutorial on how to make coloring book drawings from your photos and another on designing a graphic art style page. If you click on the Blinkie at the top of this blog you'll be able to sign up for Premier and get everything right now!

My title, "All Boy" was created using a simple technique I call "Offset Alignment". I've used the free font, Mom's Typewriter. Type the words with a point size of 150 and choose a color that matches your papers. The Hex code for my green is #5c4d00 and I've lowered the opacity of my layer to 55%. Control/Cmd Click on the type layer thumbnail to get a selection outline, create a new layer, then choose Edit, Stroke, choose 5 pixels and black for the color. With the Move Tool selected, nudge the stroke layer down and to the side a few pixels with your arrow keys to that it's offset against the words.
The other Fonts: Karabine and Century Gothic.
