Keep Cool




Well, Wednesday night I slipped when trying to transfer from bed to wheelchair, my leg went under the chair. I was sure I'd broken it after hearing a loud snap along with excruciating pain. After over 5 hours in ER they finally xrayed. Nothing broken, but muscles & ligaments are torn, badly sprained & bruised. Hard to work at computer & keep the leg elevated, plus the pain is exhausting me. But I spotted an email from Tina of Lady Saphire Designs advertising her latest kit & just had to work with it.

Keep Cool is available in both full size & tag size.


I did 2 layouts, created a quick page based upon each for you to download as a set, and a tag with tutorial.


Tutorial for “Keep Cool” tag
What I used:
Kit called “Keep Cool” by Lady Saphira, http://yourscrapaddiction.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_127&products_id=2695 (tag size)

(full size)
Cookie poser by Lisa of Sophisticated Scraps http://sophisticatedscraps.blogspot.com
Adobe Photoshop Creative Suite 4 (Make sure “show transform controls” is checked for easy resizing of elements.)

What I did:
Open a new transparent canvas 700 pixels x 700 pixels. Use Circular selection tool to create a circle & fill with background of choice (paper 1).
Choose elements to fit your vision. I used tree, sun chair, hat, ice 3, butterfly 4, and shells 1,2,3. Copy & paste each element, resizing as needed & positioning as desired. Copy & paste your poser of choice (Lisa cookie 4), positioning as desired.
Use font of choice for desired text. I used a cute sandcastle font 12 (http://www.ellies-treasures.com/fonts/alphadings-seasons/alphadings-seasons.html) for main text & name. I used a small font (Arial 3) for tag information.
Merge visible & save.

Enjoy.
