Valentine Bag Toppers

Emily's Valentines. I had to go big since it's her 1st valentines where she gives and gets!
 Made from this tutorial and this kit (which is 50% off right now making it $4.99). I used card stock in my printer and the only things I did different than the tutorial is make the "new canvas" in photo shop 6.75"x5" and then when I was done making the bag toppers I made another new canvas that was 8.5"x11" and dragged and dropped the bag topper on it twice making it so I can print two on a page. Also, I made it so there is graphics on both sides (see last two pictures). But I think I'll hide the staples like in the tutorial.
I left the back circle open to stamp Emily's picture and name (custom stamp bought here. When I bought them they were about $25 each). I'm so happy to have an excuse to use these stamps!! Emily will fill in the "to" part and help me cut out the toppers, fill the snack sized baggies, stamp and staple.


Below is how they look when printed.

Hi Jennifer! I'm Mary's sister, Natalie. She is always telling me how talented you are, and I had to check out your blog...she was right! Love it! Question for you - I have NEVER digital scrapbooked before, but would love to make these valentine's for my twins' class. Do I have to have photoshop? I don't see anything about computer requirements on the link...

Jennifer said...

Hi Natalie!! Here's what I found on the internet:
"Most digital scrapbookers work with a photo editing program such as Adobe Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, Corel Paint Shop Pro, or Microsoft Digital Image Suite. However, illustration software such as CorelDRAW and page layout software such as Microsoft Publisher can also be used. There is even software designed specifically for the craft of digital scrapbooking. Essentially, you can use any software that allows you to work with layered objects, and supports the PNG file format. PNG files are preferred for digital scrapbooking because they allow the use of transparency in a high quality, true color format".

I hope this helps! I could send you my jpeg file so you can just print out exactly what I have otherwise you'll have to make new stuff. parrishplatz (at) yahoo dot com
