Default Make it Big Challenge March 2013

Welcome to the 'Make it Big Challenge' This is where you create your layout with a big bold title! What I would like to see from you this month are two things, a patterned title and a matching patterned shape. It's a great way to use those scrumptious patterned papers you have in your digi stash.

When you have created your page, please add to the gallery and then come back here and share your link.

Here's is my page, I used SKDigitals and my new kit Vintage Spring.



For playing along, I have a posting gift for you, you will receive a link to this mini kit via private message once you have completed this challenge.


Happy Scrapping.

This is probably a stupid question... But how do you cut an alpha out of paper?

what program are you using Miamm?
In photoshop you can convert your text into a shape, but this can be a little complicated, a simple way would be to use your chosen font to make your word, type onto your page (make sure it's big, you can always shrink later) add another layer (nothing on it) and merge together, now your text is no longer a text but just another element. You can now either use pattern fill or clip your patterned paper to the word.

Or is you have a patterned Alpha in your digi scrap stash, then that will be a good way to go

dkane your photo is so cute, the patterned heart and alpha just finishes the page off perfectly.

He really only made these sad faces for the time it took his mommy to wash. A little trip in the car, then disturbed from his sleep and wanted to eat - NOW, please! Our little love GGbaby.
The Kit is "Blue Like That" by Feli Designs.
