  • The Groove April 2010 Monthly Freebie Challenge

    Welcome to The Groove's Monthly Freebie Challenge!

    Hello from The Groove, Scrapbook MAX!'s *free* monthly newsletter!

    Each month, a featured designer offers a great freebie mini-kit and issues a challenge based on that kit.

    All you need to do is download the freebie, save it, and double-click on it to import the elements into Scrapbook MAX!. Then, create a layout that steps up to the challenge, upload it to the Groove Newsletter Challenges gallery and post a link to your layout in a reply to this thread!

    Details about this month's freebie and challenge are below!

    This month, designer Deanne Gow-Smith has shared an elegant freebie that she is inviting you to have some "color fun" with!

    Deanne’s Challenge:
    • Take the items in this kit and change the colours of everything (double-click on your item in the Scrapbook MAX! design space, click on the Advanced tab and use the adjust colour / hue settings in Scrapbook MAX! 2.0)
    • Make a color co-ordinated layout (with your new "colour scheme")
    • Be sure to re-colour your background image. Here's how:
    Import a background paper from this kit into the design space as a "Background". Double-click on the Background to call up its Settings. On the Settings dialog, keep Background Image selected, but at the same time choose a colour from the color selector. Then, use the transparency slider. Your chosen hue will shine through your background image! (click on the images attached to post #2 in this thread - the very next post - for a step-by-step tutorial)
    • Add text, making sure to use the colour blend or image/pattern buttons.

    * * * *
    Be sure to check out the April 2010 issue of The Groove. You'll find heritage layouts made by Scrapbook MAX! community members, a discount coupon code on featured kits, **free Scrapbook MAX! banners and blinkies**, and learn all about the all-new Family Heritage Mega Expansion Pack for Scrapbook MAX! 2.0.

    Happy Scrapping!

      Hi Guys! This feature of changing the background colour of a "Paper" I discovered just a couple of weeks ago... Maybe you already found it but for me it was NEW! and I think it will be very very handy to be able to do this ( as well as change colours of other elements) ... Let's see what you can do with it...

      Even if it's new to you - ( you dont have to use the paper from my kit) try some of your OWN favourite Background Papers and post the before and after effect... we'd love to see it - Any questions on it , please just ask!
      thanks Karin for the picture tutorial

            Good work Girls, and can I ask you a question... I am just interested if you knew about the ability in SBM to change the bG paper colour? Have you learned something new ?

                      Thanks Omajo, it looks so different... I'm glad you learned a new trick.. I did too......just think we will always be able to find a background paper to match now.

                              Moonbeam, I normally just use the sliders on the Advance Tab to change the colors. I did learn something new with this method. Thanks so much. I love to keep learning all of the things we can do in SBM.
