Welcome to Creative Scrapbooking Divas' first Blog Hop! Thank you for joining us as we celebrate the launch of our new site by taking you on a journey through the blogs of each of the site’s creators.
We will each give you a prompt for a challenge or perhaps a scrappy tip so that you can get to know us better. Post a comment so we know you have stopped by and then go on to the next blog. Those who finish the hop will be entered into a drawing for a chance at a great prize.
Once you make it through this hop you will then be linked back to the Blog Hop thread at CSDivas where you post your blog hop creations. I always recommend posting your LOs in your own gallery at CSDivas as well. While you are here, take a look around at the groups, discussions, tutorials, and challenges already in place. Our site is so Divalicious!!
I'm a very traditional scrapbooker, meaning that I don't often make cards or altered items. For me, scrapbooking is all about getting my photos into albums to share with future generations. Sometimes I make digital pages, often I make hybrid pages and always I look for new ways to make my page fun for the person viewing it.
So what could be more fun than an interactive element? On my Up Before the Birds page, I have a sliding bird element that moves sideways across the page to bring the page a little fun. So today, I'm going to tell you how to make a slider on your page.
2. Choose a sticker or a die cut or make a tag to use as your sliding element.
3. Cut a strip of cardstock approximately one inch wide that is 3 times the height of your sliding element. Center it on the back of your die cut so that the strip sticks out above and below your element and adhere it.
4. Fold each side in so that they meet in the middle and then fold them back again. Refer to photo.
It will then look like this from the front:
On the back, it will look like this:
It's as easy as that! Here are two more pages where I used a slider. I love the Tug of War people and the limo on the prom page.
