I reached 4000 fans at Facebook this month and to celebrate I am giving away 4 freebies. Combined they will make a mini kit for you to have. Each of the 4 freebies will only be available for download for 4 days each. So, you better go grab them while you can. The Papers are up now and will be available for another few days. Elements will be up next.

Hi out there, welcome to our this weeks LO-highlights.

Did you discover SO's new pin board gallery? It's such a fun to strive through all those great layouts.

This week I found two (or three ;o) ) wonderful pages.

The first page I found was posted by Skippyherron. She used Chelle's cute mini-kit Little Stinker:

This page is so cute not only because of the sweet guinea pigs. I really love what she did with this kit, absolutely fantastic work.

And here you can find the kit:

The second page I found is a two-pager slitted in two single pages made by kass23:

Wow, what a shock for a mom, I think, I would be totally crazy but it's an absolutly great page. Love all the circles.

kass23 used the Heroes {Super Bundle} by Chelle's Creations and Dream Big Designs

Wish you all a great week!

Sunday Tutorial-Creating a Composite Layer

I recently learned a shortcut that was so brilliant and yet so simple-I'm sure many of you already know it but I never did! It's creating a composite layer. For example, if you're editing an image and added a texture layer and you now want to add that photo to a layout, you can create a composite layer without having to flatten your photo or deal with extra layers when adding to your layout.

Here's a picture that I want to edit before adding to a layout. 

 Here's the picture once I ran an action. It would be a pain to drag it all down to the layout and I don't always want to flatten it, especially if I'd like to come back and adjust something. It's just easier than undoing things. To create the composite layer, press Ctr/Cmd  +alt/opt + shift + E (a nice workout for your fingers!).

Ta-da! A new layer with the edited image. All you need to do is highlight the layer and drag it down to your layout. I had no idea this existed and I was too excited once I found out how it works! I hope this helps make your editing and scrapping a little easier.

Layout Highlights

Hey everyone! If you are in the galleries at Scrap Orchard frequently, you may have seen the new ScrapPin gallery that they debuted last week. I love it! It's a Pinterest for digital scrapbooking. Such a neat idea and I encourage you to sign up and start sharing. It's a great way to organize your challenge layouts, favorite kits and designers, techniques to learn, favorite layouts, and even organize your own layouts by designer or theme. Seriously awesome!!!

Here are some great layouts I found in the new gallery:


The fun page was created by meagan43 using "Into the Wild".

And here's another fantastic page by jaharvey:

She used "Bad to the Bone". Such a fun, playful page!

If you noticed something similar about the two, it's because they both used a freebie template from Fiddle-Dee-Dee Designs. I wanted to show the two and how easy it is to make a template your own by rotating and using your own flair! Take a peak at the new gallery (the old one is still there too) and get registered. It's addicting once you get started...

Sunday helper - easy forum posting with firefox

Oh my gosh, it's sunday again and here we are for another episode of our sunday helper.

Which browser are you using for surfing and forum chatting? Are you a firefox fan as I am? I absolutely looooooove my firefox. There are so many great and useful add-ons out there and one of them is BBCodeXtra.

BBCodeXtra is an extension, which adds to the context menu new commands to insert BBCode/Html/XHtml codes in an easy and fast way.

BBCodeXtra suits well with all forum types, for example:

* phpBB
* Invision
* VBullettin

This extension can really simplify your life with all forums that use BBCode (as Scraporchard does) or Html codes when posting new messages.

Just use it and you'll fast love it. Come on, give it a try!
