Bridges Kit, So Many Possibilities and 9 Layouts!

All of these layouts feature the February 2008 Bridges Kit from Club Scrap! I love the architectural design elements for so many types of pages, and also you should note of all the eagles in the patterns! Those eagles make the kit perfect for Scouts, Military, Americana, etc!

East India Square Fountain

This fountain was a romping ground for my brother and I when we were children and the tradition has continued! When we visit the Peabody Essex Museum we often stop for lunch at the small mall near it and if the weather is nice the kids eat out by the fountain and play as soon as they are finished! This layout is also in the main gallery at the Club Scrap Website!

Here is my layout from the Club Scrap Bridges 2/08 DigiRap :) I took some spare copy paper and cut it to the proportions that I needed for the layers, then inked up the edges, scanned, and used them to make my own overlays... Hadn't intended to leave them black but I loved the way it worked out! When creating the overlay, use the Magic Wand Tool with a Tolerance of 5 and Contiguous unchecked in PSE to highlight and delete all of the white areas.

Wood End Lighthouse

I created this layout as part of the Scrapbook Takeout February 2008 Happy Hours Crop! We were challenged to find a layout in their gallery to inspire a new one of our own and I chose this layout by Head Chef Vernell!

Modern Fossils

This is a photo of the sidewalk in town... the kids were fascinated by all of the "fossils" on a walk with Cub Scouts. I used some of the spotlighting tools in Photoshop Elements (learn how in the February 2008 DigiRap). I also used scans of my own inked plain paper in order to get the digitally inked edges.

Beverly Salem Bridge

In my hometown there used to be a kind of draw brige/rotating bridge set up to get across the harbor from Beverly to Salem but after I moved away they built this hilly bridge that doesn't open. It's just really weird because it used to be such a hassle to cross over to Salem or even travel down the main roads towards it if there happened to be ships crossing through. It wasn't timed or anything, just whenever there was a need, kind of like a traffic light that only changes if there is a need... but ohhh the time it took and how backed up things could be!

Bald Eagle

This Bald Eagle is indeed in a cage... but it's at the Ecotarium where the only regional animals they have are there because they had needed rehab and can no longer live in the wild.

The Spider and the Fly

I loved the patterns from this kit for these photos in the play spider web at the Stoneham Zoo, but the colors just didn't match! So I used Ctrl-U in photoshop to alter the hues of each paper!

Club Scrap Bouquet

I love the subtle grid pattern on the paper for this one and love layering paper layouts with translucent papers, but grr the adhesive always shows... not so in digital! And much easier to add text! I also played with spotlighting on the photo, as per the Bridges DigiRap.

The Falconer

This statue is in Lynch Park in my hometown and is a replica of one in NYC's Central Park. To learn more about this gorgeous park and the statue, visit (I showed photos from the park in a bunch of layouts in the Club Scrap Chat Message Board and past few months...
