You Speak Out

Of Hills and Mountains

Recently I took up cycling. It was a choice partially made for me since I decided I was going to take my daughter to school, and she wanted to ride her bike instead of having me drive her there.

The first day after leaving her at the school, I just kept going. I rode all the way to a bird preserve in the area where there's not much traffic. I was surprised by a small hill on the way back, since getting there hadn't been that hard. I went around a neighborhood, so I wouldn't be in the kids' way, and then after 8:50, I was home free. It was exhilarating and amazing.

Since then I've graduated to longer rides and more sophisticated roads. Even though I still go to the bird preserve, I'm taking longer to get back home and have added more miles to my route.

However, it's still surprising to come to a hill. The climb just kills me. Sometimes I can see the hill coming up, so I've decided the only way to conquer it is by attacking it. My approach is simple: Pedal harder and faster and try not to lower my gears. I just keep going until I'm almost at the top of the hill, then I can slow down a bit. It's a killer on the legs, but after a few days, they can handle it.

At other times, the hills sneak up on me. In the dark, the only help I have is a small light attached to my bike. When I realize my breathing is more labored, then I start pedaling harder. However, it's more difficult because I wasn't prepared to meet it head-on. The hill had an advantage over me.

I think our personal experiences in life are that way. Sometimes they sneak up on us when we least expect them. We have to labor hard to overcome them. Other times we can see a hardship coming our way, or we have prepared wisely for an unexpected event, and we can survive the experience, feeling better for doing so.

Recently, I crested a personal hill myself. I consider myself "at the hill" actually. I was asked by someone younger about the view from my perspective. I told him that it was wonderful. Even so, I didn't have the heart to tell him that there were more hills coming, that the one I am at is not the last one, even if from his point of view, it seems far away and somewhat unimportant. I can also see all the other hills and mountains I've crested and left behind through the years. And when I do that, I feel like I accomplished so much.

So, how do you tackle your hills or mountains? Can you see what you left behind? Does it make you sad or happy?

Thanks for the chance to pedal along with you.

- Patricia Gardner

Straight Talk: Using Guidelines to Line Up Your Supplies on Your Layout

Are you on the constant lookout for ways to make things less complicated and less time-consuming, especially when it comes to digital scrapbooking? I know I am, and one of the things that I can spend huge amounts of time on is trying to line things up on my layouts and projects. Does this sound at all familiar? Thank goodness for guidelines and grids which come to our rescue!

I like to use both a Grid and Guidelines together, depending on my project. To add a grid to your layout, go to View> Show> Grid (Photoshop CS5). In Photoshop Elements, go to View> Grid.

Digital Scrapbook Technique Screenshot: Show Grid in Adobe Photoshop.

A grid will be added to your document.

Digital Scrapbook Technique Screenshot: Grid is added to document.

The default is in one-inch increments, but you can change that in the Photoshop Preferences pane.

Go to Photoshop> Preferences> Guides, Grids & Slices for Mac users or Edit> Preferences> Guides, Grids & Slices for PC users. (In PSE, click on the vertical or horizontal ruler that is at the edge of your layout to go to Preferences> Guides & Grid, then adjust your guideline increments as desired.) You can also change the color of the grid and guidelines so they will show up better depending on the color of your background.

Digital Scrapbook Technique Screenshot: Change Preferences for Guides, Grid and Slices.

Digital Scrapbook Technique Screenshot: Change Preferences for Guides and Grid lines.

Now, you could just use the grid lines to line up your elements like I did below, but using guidelines will make it a snap!

Digital Scrapbook Technique Screenshot: Use grid lines to line up elements on a layout.

To add a guideline to your layout, go to View> New Guide.

Digital Scrapbook Technique Screenshot: Add a new guide.

A pop-up will appear that allows you to place your guidelines horizontally or vertically and in whatever increments you choose.

Digital Scrapbook Technique Screenshot: Change guide settings.

The best thing about using guides is that you can select the Snap-to Guides feature!

Digital Scrapbook Technique Screenshot: Use Snap To Guides feature.

The snap-to feature is a magic little tool that will "snap" the element or even a photo to the closest guideline as you are moving it. You will really notice this feature in action if you have several guidelines set up on your layout.

Digital Scrapbook Technique Screenshot: Snap elements to nearest guideline.

A quicker way to set up guidelines is to turn on your rulers, go to View> Rulers or use the shortcut Cmd+R (Mac) or Ctrl+R (PC). Now click on the ruler either on the side or the top, left-click your mouse, and hold then drag out your guideline. As you see below, I have added both a vertical and horizontal guideline. You can drag out as many as desired. I turned on the grid to make sure my spacing was precise.

Digital Scrapbook Technique Screenshot: Click and drag to create guidelines.

Using grids and guidelines work wonderfully for lining up embellishments, titles, journaling, photos, and just about anything. I hope this helps speed up your process and gives you even more time to scrap!

Until next time!

Member of the Month: Reminiscing

Michele
Scrap Girls' Member of the Month - June 2011
Member Name: Reminiscing

1. What program do you use to do your digital scrapbooking?

I used Photoshop Elements 5 (PSE5) until last November, when I took advantage of Adobe's Black Friday sale, and I finally upgraded to PSE9. I adjusted easily, I'm happy with it, and I'm glad I skipped all the problems I read about the other version in between.

2. Are you a Mac or a PC?

Again, I have recently switched. After 18 years using PCs, I bought my first Mac at the beginning of May. It has been easy to make the switch, but I'm still working on reorganizing my scrap stash, which used to be split up between PC and external hard drive (EHD), and sloppily backed up.

3. Tell us the make and model of digital camera that you use.

This month I celebrate the anniversary of my first DSLR purchase, a Canon Rebel T1i. Happily, I do feel my photography has improved a little in the last year.

4. Name one thing that every beginning digital scrapbooker should know.

Play around with PSE (or whatever editing program) without fear – there's always Control+Z (Undo) – as much as you can because the more you do, the more you will learn.

5. If you could be transformed into a digital scrapbooking embellishment, what would you choose and why?

This is such a hard question for me. After much pondering, I think maybe I'm word art, because I love language - and writing and quotes too!

6. What time of day do you find that you do your best scrapbooking?

Any time that I can be alone, but since that is not often (being a homeschooling mom), the earlier in the day, the better. I'm a morning bird.

7. What is your favorite snack?

Again, this was hard for me to decide. Sometimes I want salty, usually potato chips, and sometimes I want sweet – I love cookies – and I also think leftovers from favorite dinners make excellent snacks (like the sweet potato and sausage dinner I made this week and ate four times in two days).

8. What is your least favorite household chore?

I would like to never have to clean the bathroom.

9. Finish this sentence. "I couldn't live without..."

...my husband.

10. What's your current favorite layout that you've done?

We helped you jumpstart your January and now it's time to re-JUNE-venate your focus on scrapbooking! Join us on the Forum this month for "Re-JUNE-venate!" This is a Meassage Board game and challenge that focuses on taking time to scrapbook regularly despite the little speedbumps of life. When the month is over, you'll have several completed layouts and will have been challenged and treated to some fun along the way... with prize opportunities thrown in as well!

A member of the Welcoming Committee will post a mini-challenge or task each day Monday through Saturday from June 1st - 30th. The tasks will be formatted in LARGE PURPLE FONT for ease of locating them in the game thread as it grows. Some tasks will require Message Board participation, email responses or gallery posting. Read each daily task carefully to see what is required of you.

Those who complete all tasks and submit or post required participation will be entered in a drawing to win one of three $10 Gift Certificates to the Scrap Girls Boutique! Those who complete just the layouts will be entered in a drawing to win one of two $5 Gift Certificates. Those who complete just the speedbumps will be entered in a drawing for one of two $3 Gift Certificates. (Those who complete all tasks will have their name entered in all three drawings!)

Join us in June for some serious scrapbooking re-JUNE-venation!
