Pink Pirouette

Garvey Bright Sunshine

Supplies Used

Kimberly by Keith Garvey (HERE)
“Limocello” by Gimptastic Scraps (HERE)
Page Template (HERE)
“Internet Friends” (Name)
Eye Candy Bevel

Let's Begin!

To get the page template, you must be a registered user of the Ginger Scraps forum. Hurry before it’s gone.

Open template, crop to below the “date here” tab, delete excess layers and then resize by 25%. Below is what yours should look like.

Open the tube. Add it in the little middle square; to the left square after up-sizing by 145% and then to the right after up-sizing by 125%. Sharpen slightly, if needed.

Open paper 10 and change out the paper circles. I merged my layers first and did it twice to get all of the circles.

Open flower 1 and place it near the left hand side tube without re-sizing. Delete any flowers that this flower 1 covers in the original template.

Add the branch below the flower 1 layer. Erase the left hand side carefully and position. Then, duplicate, mirror and rotate 90 degrees. Merge the two layers together.

Open the lemon slice, re-size by 30% and add below all black flower layers. Merge lemon layers and delete black flowers. (Move them down to just above the tube layers)

Add the honeypot between the two lower lemon layers.

Open flower 2, re-size by 50% and add below the honeypot. Delete all layers under this (bottom and two flower layers) of the original template.

Open the branch again and erase all but the top left leaf. Add this below the flower 2 layer.

Go back, undo the erase, then do it again, leaving the right upper leaf. Add this below the last leaf layer and position.

Add bits of tall grass under each flower layer. Add the sliced lemons under the flower 1 layer.

Open the cabbage, re-size by 50% and add below the sliced lemons.

Add the lights above the green background in four different sections. Merge together but do not DS later; lower opacity to 175%.

Open flower 4, re-size by 30% and add where the little pink flowers are still showing, plus one under the square the holds the middle tube image.

Delete any original element layers now. We won’t need these. Change the original photo layers with paper 9.

Crop as close to the design as needed, add your choice of DS and name then copyright. Upload to the photo sharing site to enjoy.

Open the tube of choice and added it below my first frame gradient layer. DS, delete excess and delete gradient layer. Do the same for the second frame opening, turning tube to fit frame.

Duplicate the first tube, take to above the top flat photo, flip and then use the rotation settings below.
Lower all gradient layers on the flat photos layers to 75%.

PUT Pop! Goes the Fourth

Elias Celebrate Patriotism

It's that time of year again--the time when designers are really producing some really great tagger's and full sized kits all geared at July Fourth! And those tube designers are kicking out the tubes to match them. But it also reminds me of the goodies of olde that I never used in the first place and want to get out there for old times sake!
