Hi Everyone :) Rachel here with a fun little post to give you some scrappy inspiration.
One of my favorite ways to scrap is centered around the photo and story. And my favorite way to do this has to be uploading my photo to a color palette generator! I then use the colors it comes up with to scrap my layout. So I am going to challenge everyone to try it for themselves!! If you love color then you’ll love this!
I challenged the shabby girls and they came up with some amazing layouts!! Here are their pages with the photo they started with and the color palette that was generated:
Kylie had a great tip ~ “my photo had heaps of blue and brown/skin tones and the software couldn’t seem to pick up the other colours so I cropped my photo to balance it out“.
If you want to try this out too, here are some sites I’ve found that you might like to use:

Hi everyone :) Rachel here to bring you a fun little trick for making stamping look more realistic!
Lets get right to it!
When your layout is done, and you are ready to finish off with the little details, take your ‘stamp’ ~ in this case the 2009. (My tip: I merged my seperate 2009 numbers to make it easier to work with) Now duplicate your ‘stamp’ layer (right click on your layer and duplicate layer OR ctrl+J)
Drag one copy of your stamp layer below the layer you are stamping and the other right above the layer you are on. (Here 2009 is above the pattern paper shape and on the green paper)
Clip (Ctrl+G ) the top stamp layer to the ‘pattern’ paper layer (see above photo)
Take your bottom unclipped stamp layer and using the eraser OR masking tool (at 100% opacity). Erase a small line between the two (see below photo)
Here is my final layout
Hope you enjoyed my little stamping trick…it is super simple, yet you’ll find it really does bring that perfect touch of realism to your page!
Thanks for checking in with the Blog today! SP will be here tomorrow with her Project SCRAP check-in!

Hello everyone! Rachel here to bring you a new product spotlight! Doing the product spotlight is one of my favorite things here on the Shabby Shoppe Blog. I just love looking though the Shabby Shoppe digital kits and getting to revisit them over again. It’s amazing how many different ways you can really scrap a page with the same kit or even use bits from each one to make exactly what you want.
Anyways, that’s enough of my rambling…here is the amazing Happy Trails kit (on SALE for only $4.95 for a limited time)!!
This kit will have you heading out West with your photos (or at least wanting to…lol)!! So many fun and unique things in this kit. Bandana prints, pony prints, rusted metal and so much more. Curled ribbons and twill tape, torn paper borders, buttons, and stickers. So many things to add some outdoor fun to your photos!
And check out these new layouts from the Shabby Girls!
And, even though you may have seen this layout by Beckie before – it was just too wonderful not to share again!
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today! Tomorrow we’ll be checking in with PROJECT SCRAP… until then, have a wonderful day! :)
