September Feature Collection

This month will start a series of Feature Collections that you can only only see here on the blog. Not only do we get to see some popular kits and collection from the past, but you can also grab it at a saving this month!

My first collection featured for September will be the "Classmates Collection". Appropriate for this time of year as our kiddos get back to the ole classroom. The Classmates digital scrapbooking Collection is a modern styled school collection. This collection covers a wide range from just starting school thru high school.
You can save on either the Classmates Collection Biggie OR the Value Pack: Classmates.

Value Pack: Classmates
 Orig $21.27 NOW $13.82
You'll find this value pack jammed with all of the Classmates digital scrapbooking products. Included are: Classmates Collection Biggie, Classmates Overlays Paper Mini, Periodic Table Alpha Biggie & a Jif Album of 5 pre-made 12x12 digital scrapbooking layouts ready to take on your photos.

Classmates Collection Biggie
 Orig $9.99 NOW $6.49

 This layout is on of the pre-made JIFFY templates included in the Value Pack. Just add your photos and text and you are done in a Jiffy!

 Some fun embellishments in this collection are the semi transparent circles, they have texture like vellum and can be used as shown above or as photo-masks like in the layout below of Lilly at Dance School.
 This layout shows off both alpha sets included in the collection Biggie and Value Pack. One is an outline wire alpha in off white, while the other is a pressed alpha in fuchsia. By "pressed" I mean that it is indented to look like it is pressed into the paper underneath. You will find this effect in all of the large word art titles as well.

 Here is the sample of using those circles as photo-masks. I just set the blending mode to overlay and the pink showed through. Then I also clipped one of the overlays from the paper mini on top of the photo and lowered the opacity.

 The collection includes a blackboard paper. I intentionally didn't make it too "chalky" so you have a cleaner version of a very popular background.  I did the "Back to School" to mimic chalk to give you an idea of some of the fun things you can do with this paper.

 This sample is from the Jiffy Album, but the pie chart is included in the Collection as well. Even though they may seem smaller in the Marketing Graphic for the Embellishments, don't let that fool you. (I was running out of space lol) They are actually fairly large. The pie charts in the collection and embellishment biggie come with photo-masks (where you see Wes & the Journaling) while in the Jiffy Album, each pc of the chart is separate so you can use it as a template for other types of layouts.

 This is one of the layout samples for the 12x12 Jiffy Album. Each pc is separate so you can use it as as-is or as a template for other types of layouts. One thing I like about it is that the triangles are separated slightly allowing your background to show through if needed. Or as in the layout above, the white gives it a nice clean look. This is great for all the "extra" photos you have left over or small phone pictures.

 This layout shows one of the alpha type overlays. These are in an off white that matches the collection, but you could change it to black before overlaying for a darker effect. I kept them in white because it looks nice against the papers in the collection. For this one, I just lowered the opacity of the overlay and cut it off to match the edge of this half and half paper.

 This layout shows the diagonal stripe overlay which I kept wanting to use over and over again. I had to stop myself, LOL. It adds a fun graphic effect to any photo or just added over a solid color like above. This layout used one of the Jiffy Album templates (or one of the papers you can cut out yourself) I duplicated the layout and added it to a new document, decreasing the size to get this squared off effect.

While this is a sample for the Periodic Table Alpha Biggie, It is also included in the Jiffy Album. Like the triangles, it offers a clean graphic layout. Each pc is separate like the others so you can have fun.
