Default Jan 2012 Clutter It Challenge

I hope you all had a safe and enjoyable New Year's celebration. May we all have good health and happiness in 2012.

Here is your basic page for this month. This layout is a little different, no "overt" frames. You can use the tags as mats, make them into frames, or use them for journaling - whatever your heart desires.



You may do whatever you like to this basic page, but you must alter it somehow - add a few elements to it, flip it, rotate it, recolor it or do whatever you want. You decide what elements to add to transform my basic template into YOUR own page.

Rules:

1. You can use digital items from any designer... no restrictions! Make sure you credit appropriately in the gallery. If you're new to posting in online galleries, the credit line should say something like, "Kit used is Aquarium Friends by PiggyScraps". Please make sure this information is posted in the gallery.

2. When you're finished, add it to the Clutter It Challenge gallery. Then come back to this forum to post a link to the gallery, so we can all ooh-and-aah over what you've made!

Download this basic page HERE. (link is expired 1/31/12)

As a participation reward, we offer a 10% discount on ALL of your purchases for the following month! So, if you participate this month and get a layout posted (AND post a link here in this forum), you will receive 10% off of every purchase made next month! No coupons required, the discount will automatically apply to your purchase(s)! And, this is on top of any/all sale prices in effect at the time of purchase!

Happy scrapping ~
Darlene

If you save for the gallery so that the final LO is approx 100kb, that's a good rule of thumb. I use Photoshop (and you can do this in Elements as well), and the way I do this is, I duplicate my 12x12", 300 ppi image. Then I flatten it, and resize it to 72 ppi and 500x500 pixels. Then I do a "Save for Web" and the end result is that it's always small yet clear enough to post to galleries.

Hope this helps!

My Clutter It challenge for this month is a pic from last year of our family with my Mum and Dad on the occasion of their Golden Wedding Celebration.
