A link or seven, especially for Amy :-)

Amy left a comment about my 'Green' digi LO I posted, asking about the lines dividing up the grid. They were a free download from Shabby Princess, part of their Harvest Spice collection, Amy :-) It's a line of stitches; I copied it a few times and rotated 3 of the lines 90 degrees, then dragged them all into place, using the 'grid' view on PSE to help with placement. I love the Shabby Princess downloads and they have some great tutorials, too! I also used a tutorial from Cathy Zielske to help me put my grid LO together - the tutorial appeared on Ali Edwards' blog as part of her Tuesday Tutorials series; the link is here and there's a downloadable pdf of instructions on that page. I adapted the process to suit the number of photos and the 'look' I wanted, but it was easy enough to do.

Oh, and Amy, I have to tell you that because of your influence I've ordered those same page templates by Ali Edwards (currently on offer, result...) I just love the clean look of your LOs so I plan to do something similar for a project some time soon! Thanks for the inspiration :-)

Thanks Mel, I'll have a look at these links later today. Cathy Zielske is my scrapping idol - I have that particular tutorial and I happen to think that she is brilliant. I took her online class about design last year at Big Picture Scrapbooking and it has been the single most influential class regarding scrapbooking I've ever taken. Did you take that class? If you didn't and she runs it again I would highly recommend it to anyone. I'll get back to you with how I go with the links - thankyou,
Amy.
