Speed Scrap Layouts

I have done 3 speed scraps over the last 3 days and I wanted to share my layouts along with the directions. I love the last one I did today hosted by Jamie- it's just the one that I think turned out the best. However I like them all- I just enjoy speed scraping so much!! There is nothing better than getting 3 layouts done that fast! If you ever want to do one check out Stuff to Scrap forum and get in on the action.


Brittney's Instructions:

STEP 1: CHOOSE 1 "ACTION" PHOTO. MEANING WHOEVER IS IN THE PICTURE HAS TO BE DOING SOMETHING ACTIVE, NOT JUST SITTING THERE
STEP 2: PICK TWO PATTERNED PAPERS AND USE THEM HOW YOU'D LIKE, EXCEPT YOU CANNOT MAT YOUR PHOTO WITH ONE
STEP 3: FRAME YOUR PICTURE WITH AN ACTUAL FRAME, NO PAPER
STEP 4: ADD WHATEVER EMBELLISHMENTS YOU WANT BUT YOU HAVE TO HAVE STITCHES, FLOWERS, AND SOMETHING SWIRLY
STEP 5: ADD A TITLE
STEP 6: "HANG" A TAG SOMEWHERE ON YOUR LAYOUT AND PUT YOUR DATE ON IT
STEP 7: ADD JOURNALING IF YOU WOULD LIKE AND DON'T FORGET THOSE DROP SHADOWS. TH
EN UPLOAD YOUR LAYOUT TO THE GALLERY UNDER YOUR USERNAME AND PUT SS IN THE KEYWORDS!

My layout:

Sarah's Instructions:
Step 1: Pick out 3 papers – 2 plain (lightly textured) papers and 1 patterned paper. Your patterned paper MUST have the same colors as your plain papers. Choose 1 photo and crop into a square. Enhance photo as you see fit!

Step 2: Use 1 plain paper as background. Use other plain paper and cut a rectangle. Plac
e it on your page near top left. With patterned paper, cut a rectangle smaller than first one and place it on top of the first rectangle (you should be able to see the plain paper underneath). Put Photo on top towards the middle right side. Remember to SAVE your work!!

Step 3: Using a ribbon cover the top and bottom seams (where the top rectangle goes over the bottom one). Use stitches to stitch ribbon to top paper. Make sure you can still see your plain paper. Remember to SAVE your work!!

Step 4: Find a flourish (fancy swirl or swoosh) and stroke it in a light color. Place this under your photo so it is peeking out. Remember to SAVE your work!!

Step 5: Choose 3 other elements of your choice and cluster them under the photo, peeking out. You may use them as many times as you wish. Make sure you add realistic drop shadows to all. Remember to SAVE your work!!


Step 6: Create your title using a font and an alpha…. Title should be in lower right corner. Add a date somewhere on your layout. Remember to SAVE your work!!

Step 7: Last step…. Save your layout, resize and upload to the STS gallery. Then copy the link and paste it in this thread. You have one hour and 15 minutes to complete all 7 steps.

My layout:

Jamie's Instructions:
Step 1. Pick out 5 papers. 4 Patterns and 1 plain with texture or just plain.
STEP 2. Pick out 4 pictures. You will be cropping the photo and only using the faces of the person in the photo. you can use photos of the same person or more than one person. I am using the same person and each photo has a different expression.
STEP 3. Use one of the papers for your background. Take the other 4 papers and cut them into rectangle pieces. 2 of them the same size about 2Wx6L and the other 2 about 2Wx5 1/2L (You may adjust the sizes if you would like).
STEP 4. Place each strip side by side with just a little bit of space between them next to eachother across the page towards the top leaving some space between them and the top of the page. Stagger the strips. You do not have to stagger them if you would prefer not to.
STEP 5. Next take each photo and crop them so that the wideth is the same as the strips of paper, but not the length of the paper. Crop it so it is a head shot.
STEP 6. Place a photo under each of the paper strips leaving a little space between them. Add a bow or ribbon on each strip. If it is ribbon have the ribbon going across the strip of paper.
STEP 7. Add shadows, additional elements, tag with wordart or journaling and whatever you would like.
