SWAK


Oh my. I spotted S.W.A.K. by Digicats (and Dogs) & begged to be allowed to play with it. Happy, happy - she said yes!
I did 2 layouts which became quick page freebies for you.


Remember all my quick pages are for personal use only.

I also made 2 tags , with accompanying tutorials.




Tutorial for “Love You Beary Much” tag

What I used:
Scrap kit by Digicats (and Dogs) called SWAK http://scrappinjungle.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_121&products_id=820
The kit includes 3 posers by Perfect Posers http://perfectposers.com/.
Adobe PhotoShop Creative Suite 4 (Make sure “show transform controls” is checked to allow for easy resizing of elements.)

What I did:
1. Open a new transparent canvas 700 pixels x 700 pixels (I later enlarged to 800 pixels x 800 pixels to allow the outside text.) Use circular selection tool to create a circle. Fill with background of choice (paper 38).
2. Select a frame (frame 05). Copy & paste, resizing as needed, positioning at center of circle.
3. Select a decorative element (bow 08). Copy & paste, resizing & positioning as desired. Apply bevel & emboss effect.
4. Copy & paste a teddy bear (fuzzy bear 03). Resize as needed, positioning in front of the frame. Apply bevel & emboss effect.
5. Choose a candy heart for the bear to hold, if desired (candy heart 01b). Copy & paste, resizing & positioning.
6. Apply desired text. I used Fiolex Girls, a font that can be found at www.freefonts.com. Use a smaller font for tag information.
7. Merge visible & save.

Tutorial for “Flipped Over You” tag

What I used:
Scrap kit by Digicats (and Dogs) called SWAK http://scrappinjungle.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_121&products_id=820
The kit includes 3 posers by Perfect Posers http://perfectposers.com.
Paint Shop Pro XI (Use pick tool for easy resizing of elements).

What I did:
1. Open a new transparent canvas 700 pixels x 700 pixels. Use preset tool to create a heart. Fill with background of choice (paper06).
2. Choose a poser (Perfect Posers Very Pink 05). Copy & paste, resizing as necessary. Position as desired. Apply Effects>3D>Inner Bevel>8.
3. Select elements to highlight the poser (candy heart 03b & 03c). Copy & paste, resizing & positioning as desired. Apply Effects>3D>Inner Bevel>8.
4. Enter desired text. I used Fiolex Girls (Freefonts.com). Optionally, apply Effects>3D>Inner Bevel>2. Use a smaller font (Arial4) for tag information.
5. Merge visible & save.

Enjoy.
