Hi all! I'm Julie Ann Shahin and one year ago today I debuted the Everyday Digital Scrapbooking Idea Blog with the help of my fabulous Creative Team. Join us all week as we celebrate our first ever birthday. Add to our party by linking your blog in our comments section.
The 50th person this week to add a link to their hybrid or digital tutorial will receive an extra special RAK. Please add your link in our comments section. At the end of the week one of these persons will be awarded the title of Guest CT member for the EDS Blog for November, December and January!
Be sure to party and mingle with all those linking our blogs. I'm very excited to share with you a piece of birthday cake made by our own Sarah B. Meyer! All the items in that layout above will be in our big free kit that you will get at the end of this week if you are signed up for the newsletter! (except the stitching).
This kit has been created by Sara Amerie, Amy Duquette, Beth Price, Di Hickman, Julie Ann Shahin, Julie Kelley, Maggie Lamarre, Michele Ciola, Sarah B. Meyer, Sue Kristoff, and Susan Rodgriguez.
Help our blog party run smoothly - it will be most helpful for you to leave a comment on this post, link to your blog, tell us where you live and I will be updating this blog with those links. At the end of the day if you do not see your blog listed, but you have left a post - please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
So back to our party! I'm so glad you could join us. Take a look around and then join us for cake!
After you've mingled a bit....let us show you the first of our birthday-themed tutorials we are sharing this week!
For this tutorial I will be creating Party Bag Toppers. This would save you a lot of time if you had lots of little ones or older ones coming over for the big day.
Create an image that will fit on your party baggie. I am creating mine at a 4 x 8 resolution at 300. When creating your baggie topper make sure you make a mental note of where your crease will go. If you are creating an image both on the front and back of your baggie topper, your front image should be create anywhere between the 4.25 & 8 inch marks. The back of your baggie will be created anywhere between the 0 and 3.75 inch mark. I am leaving a .5 inch allowance for the fold.
Have fun with creating the front.
Remember for the back of the tag you will have to create your image upside down. I rotated my canvas at 180 to make this easier. Click on Image – Rotate Canvas – 180.
I had a lot of fun creating this party bag topper. Here is my completed image.
Print image on heavy card stock or glue on to heavy cardstock and staple on to baggie. I think your guest will get a kick out of this. Plus imagine all the time you will save!!
