GSO from B2N2 Scraps Gallery

Today I have a couple of GSO's to share with you. There are lots of great layouts in the B2N2 Scraps gallery at STS but I managed to choose two to share.
This layout is by Sagediva2 using "Beyond The Sea". I love how the large photo is blended into the background paper.
The clustering around the smaller photo is wonderful. I love clustering.
"Beyond The Sea" Full Preview.
Preview is linked to the store for your convience.
The second layout I chose to show off today is from Thao. She created this layout using "Ready, Set, Swim" Collab by B2N2 Scraps and Gettin' Scrappy with Britt. I love all the layers in this layout from the paper strips behind the photos to all the elements clustered across the page.

"Ready, Set, Swim" Full Preview.

Give Credit where Credit is due!

One of the most important things you can do as a scrapper is give credit to those wonderful people that create these packages we use. No matter if you paid for them or found them on a free site. Each designer put in their own time and skill to make these special things for each of us and deserves credit.
There are many methods you can do in tracking credit for a layout. Find what works for you. What works for me is using notepad and copy/pasting my information into the file info for my layout. That way it is with each layout and I do not have to go search for that information. You can also make a hidden layer on your layout if you like that better, same principle. Here are the steps for my way of doing it.

Here is the layout I designed today. If you are like me when I create a layout I usually grab things from other kits, which makes tracking more difficult. In this kit I used several different designers.

After I complete a layout I open notepad (located by going to start | all programs | accessories). I then start copying the individual layers (one from each package). To copy I double click on the title of the layer, when it turns blue (where you could edit the line) I do a ctrl + c command.

After I copy and paste (quick command for paste is ctrl + v) them all over to notepad, I even keep track of my fonts, I start deleting the individual element name. People need to know what package you used not that you used ribbon_12 from so and so's package.

When you have edited your notebook file, select everything and copy.

Once you have copied your text from your notepad, go back to your Photoshop Elements program and go to File, File Info....

 I always place my credit in the caption box.

Now this layout always will have its credit already listed out. This comes in handy when you are building new profiles at scrapbooking galleries, who wants to take the time to organize things, AGAIN. This way you open, copy, paste and viola you are done.

ALSO - did you know that at certain sites you can link designers packages back to a store. This is just the ultimate way to give credit. Talk about promoting your favorite designer! One click and someone can buy their product.

Lets all support our designers hard work with credit. It is the right thing to do!

Sunday Rewind: Ready, Set, Swim!

Did you take a look at my newest kit yet? It's a collab with Gettin Scrappy with Britt.  She and I put together Ready, Set, Swim that is all about swimming whether it be swim lessons, playing in the pool, playing at a water park or at a splash pad.  This kit is so much fun!  Take a look.
Love it!  I hope you love it as much as I do!  You can find this kit at my STS store or my MyMemories store.  There's a set of 19 QPs as well!  Wow, what a gigantic quick page pack!  All the products will be 30% off for one week (until Wednesday night).
I wanted specific items for this swim kit and I couldn't find any CU stuff out there.  So I made my own CU items-a swim belt, a float bar, a diving board and a kickboard.  I decided to package them up to make a swim CU pack.  I hope you like them!
Remember, all these products are 30% off for one week!  Take a look at what my CT did with this kit.

I have a freebie from my CT member Kristin.  You can download HERE.
