So get cracking... or clicking... and start submitting the coolest all-digital or digital/paper hybrid stuff you have! Deadline for all submissions is Monday, October 22nd.
Photo Feature: It's the Little Things
From Grandma's vintage sewing machine to the iPod you got for your birthday, your son's Matchbox car collection to your sister's ever-growing T-shirt wardrobe, life is filled with objects that carry a special meaning. We're looking for layouts featuring beautiful photographs of the material things that make up your world. We'd also love to get your tips on successfully photographing objects from sparkling diamonds to black leather jackets. Submit images saved as high-quality JPEGs, measuring 6" on longest side, no later than Monday, October 22.
T3: Tips, Tricks, Tutorials
You've spoken up... and we've listened! Digital Scrapbooking will now be offering more step-by-step instructions and immediately usable tips than ever before. Look for our info-packed new column, "T3," appearing for the first time in our April/May 2008 issue. You'll find both cutting-edge techniques from our Creative Team and tips and tutorials from our talented readers.
Here's what we're looking for:
Tips. Have you found a great way to use layer blending modes? A quick fix for less-than-perfect photos? Send us your tips of 50 words or fewer on any digital scrapbooking subject, along with a layout or project that illustrates the tip in action.
Tricks. Busy scrapbookers are always looking for ways to make scrapbooking quicker and easier. Send us your time- and stress-saving tricks, along with a layout or project that shows how you've used them to create.
Tutorials. Send us your projects featuring intermediate- to advanced-level techniques, along with complete instructions for achieving the look. (Check out the step-by-step tutorials in our "Kick It Up" column for an idea of what we're looking for.)
Send us your images and instructions no later than Monday, October 22.
Are You Cover Material?
We're looking for simply amazing reader layouts to feature on our cover. For consideration, layout should have a single gorgeous photo--preferably of one person, though a well-composed twosome could work as well--and feature "only with digital" techniques paired with a clean overall design. Photo should reflect the season in which the issue will appear; for this call, we'll be looking for late spring themes and colors. Please submit no more than three layouts to this call. Submissions are due no later than Monday, October 22.
We can't wait to see what you have to share!
