Hi, I'm Ron, welcome to my blog, Random Doorways! Club Scrap Member Hetty Sanders had a great idea to host a blog hop to showcase February's Up, Up & Away kit. I tend to play both with the paper and digital kits, but since I figured that most of the hop participants would be doing things with paper, I opted to made a couple of digital pieces (and I actually help create the digital kits at Club Scrap each month, so I especially like working with them!).
First up is a 12x12 layout using a blended background technique:
If you want to learn more about blending photos into the background, please read my blog tutorial HERE at the Club Scrap Creates! blog.
I tend to keep my layouts pretty basic, so in addition to the photo, there's just a fiber (with custom shadow) and a title that's blended into the background using a layer style. Simple but effective, I think.
Next, I made a digital card:
As a paper crafter, I love to make cards, but I think that many people just don't 'get' the use of digital cards, even though they're a lot of fun to make. I've got another tutorial at Club Scrap Creates! on making and using digital cards. You can read it HERE if you'd like.
This one was really easy to assemble - just a few layers of digital 'paper' (or backgrounds), that über-cool steampunk hot air balloon (designed by the very talented Jac Carney and included in the Up, Up & Away digital kit!) and a sentiment or 2 - didn't take more than 20 minutes to create.
So that's just a little bit of what you can create with one of Club Scrap's digital kits. Really, the possibilities are endless!
