Here were the directions for this speed scrap, so you know how I came up with my layout. Seven instructions in 1 hour. May sound like a lot of time to some people for a layout, but us digi-scrappers know different. Right? Ha.
1 - Pick 2 pictures that show off your best feature (or the best feature of your subject) So if you have a great smile, beautiful teeth, lovely eyes, cute toes, etc. that is what I am looking for. My pictures show off beautiful brown eyes.
2 – Pick out 1 patterned paper with at least 4 colors in it and 4 plain papers that coordinate
3 – Use pattern paper as a big square background with one of the plain papers behind it at the full 12 x 12 size. You can tilt or leave your pattern paper straight, put to an edge or center, whatever.
4 – CUT THE OTHER 3 PLAIN PAPERS INTO STRIPS OF DIFFERENT SIZES AND/OR LENGTHS AND STACK THEM ON TOP OF EACH OTHER SOMEWHERE ON YOUR LAYOUT.
5– MAT OR FRAME YOUR PHOTOS WITH ONE OF THE PLAIN PAPERS AND ATTACH SOMEHOW (staple, button, paperclip, brad, eyelet, etc.)
6 – ADD A 1 WORD TITLE WITH AN ALPHA OR A FONT AND MAKE IT BIG
7 – DATE, JOURNAL, ADD SHADOWS AND FINISH UP YOUR LAYOUT WITH ANY ELEMENTS YOU DESIRE. POST TO THE GALLERY AND LINK BACK TO THE FORUM SO WE CAN ALL SEE

***Sorry this freebie is expired.***
Gettin' Scrappy With Britt & Scrappy Cocoa have just come out with this new freebie collab kit called Boy Meets Girl. Below is a page that I put together using the kit. The photo is of my son helping me water my strawberries outside last summer. The colors of the kit fit perfectly with it. Today both ladies are giving away the papers to the kits, so hurry on over to their blogs and pick them up while you can! Make sure to come back here in the next day or two, as I will be offering a quick page from the kit.

Here are a couple of pages that I put together using this kit. The kit is so great, as the title itself says, for scrapping those photos of my little boy playing outside.

At the top of the hour we'll post an instruction. Then every 10 minutes after we'll post another step. At the end of the hour all 7 steps will have been made and you'll have 1 additional hour to complete your layout, upload to the gallery (link to the left next of the home button) and then post your link back in this thread with a link to your gallery.
Step 1: Take a picture of yourself right now, with your digital camera, don't pretty yourself up, don't look in the mirror to see what you look like, just snap it, and then upload it to your computer. You can take up to 3 pictures of yourself, no deleting them!
(if you don't have a working camera you may find 1 picture to scan, or one picture you already have on your computer to use. This is ONLY if your camera is not working.)
Step 2: Find 3 papers, 2 solid 1 patterened. Solid will be your main background paper. The other solid will be the mat for your picture(s), and the patterned paper can be used however you like.
Step 3: You may choose any 1 of those 3 pictures to use. Only 1! We are going to be quartering the photo to create a visual sensation of observing a scene through a window. Cut your main photo into quarters and mat with the other solid paper. Works best as a 6.5x6.5 sized picture. Center on your page.
Step 4: Take this time to catch up on the above 3 steps. I know you need too! lol.
Step 5: Add whatever embellishments you feel are needed to make your page looks it's best. Try to keep it simple though. We are telling a story with our quartered picture.
Step 6: Add drop shadows and make your page look pretty. Catch up on any of the above steps. Use a different direction on your drop shadow than what you normally would use.
Step 7: Give your page a 1 word title and then journal and date. However, your journaling needs to be about you speed scrapping. What do you think about yourself in your picture, all ready to do a speed scrap. What goes through your mind. Journal that!
And here is the page that I came up with. My first thought was OMG I am already in my pajamas, I mean it did start at 9:30 Eastern. I went ahead and took a goofy picture of me waving and it actually turned out to work pretty good with the rest of the directions. Anyway, I plan to attend the next one if I can, as it was a blast!
