Club Scrap Lock and Key Blog Hop

Welcome to the Club Scrap Blog Hop for Lock and Key.

I have decided to make this month more of a little tutorial on resizing photos and using the wonderful qddl pages which come with every Club Scrap digital kit.

First you have to open your photoshop or elements software (or other software that you use).  Grab a qddl and a photo.  My qddl this month is one from Lock and Key and the photo was one taken at Miller field on the way from Milwaukee airport to Kimberly for Retreat.

Once you have both open simply drag the photo onto the layout.

To resize the photo make sure you are in the layer that has the photo selected and click.  You should see the photo highlighted and some "handles" in the corners.  Hit the shift key and left click holding the left click down and just drag until the photo becomes the desired size.  Alternatively, go to the edit menu > transform > scale and you can do the same thing. 

You will see that the photo overlaps the frame.  To correct this simply place the photo layer below the qddl layer in the layers palette.

Now you are done.  Of course you can add more to the qddl but in this case I think it is done!

What an absolutely fabulous trip to Wisconsin - I had a blast at retreat and also spent some quality time with my best friend.  A good time was had by everyone but now I am home and am preparing to post a blog entry for the Lock and Key blog hop next Wednesday.

My entry to the blog hop will be more of a tutorial based entry but it will show off the Lock and Key kit.

Stay tuned!  photo LockKey_BlogHop_badge_rsz_zps419e832f.jpg

So this morning I am spending a bit of time trying to get organized to pack to leave for Wisconsin very early tomorrow.  Also I am thinking about my part of the October CS blog hop and wondering what I can do to prepare that so it is ready for posting when I get back from Wisconsin in a week.  Right now my inclination is to do another quick page for the digital page swap but that may change.

Anyway right now I have two empty suitcases and a gazillion things to put in them.  Hopefully I will not forget anything but you never know.

Just a little teaser

I hope you will all take a trip around the Club Scrap blog hop at the end of this month.  I am currently working on my part of it.
