Now, I mentioned a new designer joining the team. Please welcome Lina of LDragDesigns to the team! We’re so happy to have her here!

As always, we asked Lina to tell us something about herself, introducing herself to everyone, and this is what she had to share:

Hello my name is Lina Dragani and I live in Greece! In one of the most beautiful countries in the world! I am married to my high school sweetheart for 17 years and we have 2 beautiful children ,Konstantina who is 12 and John who is 9. They can certainly drive me crazy as they are both very active children!
My personal story about LDrag Designs is that I found out scrapbooking completely by accident as I was looking through the internet to find tools for making my dd’s photo album!!!! In Greece scrapbooking is something really unknown!!! Most people say “what?” when I tell them what I am making!!!!! It is a long story to be told but I can tell you one thing for sure! Being a CT member wasn’t enough for me so I had to create my own designs that fit my scrapbooking needs!
Anyway my journey in this industry has been long and I always love to have a place I can call home. I am sure GingerScraps is going to be my home for the years to come and I really thank Ginger for having me!

And here is a few of the items available in her store:

Tutorial Tuesday (General)

I’m a bit under the weather today but didn’t want to leave y’all hanging so I whipped together a little discussion on how to pair those awesome alphas that come in so many of the kits at GingerScraps with the perfect font. The inspiration for this came from my friend Bea, known as beatricemi. I like to use alphas, that’s no secret, and they’re great for those layouts where you want a title and a subtitle.

A lot of the same principles I talked about in the tutorial on pairing fonts also apply to pairing an alpha with a font. They need to compliment each other, as well as the overall theme of your layout, but you don’t want them to be too matchy-matchy. You want one of them to be the boss, the alpha being the most likely choice, since you’ll be adding a drop shadow to it. You want your font to be legible.

 

By far the best tip I can give you for this task is to try them on for size. In Photoshop Elements, (before you Simplify the text layer) you can preview your text in each of your fonts just by highlighting the text then scrolling through your font library with the arrow keys. The software will change the text right in front of you. You’ll know right away which ones DON’T work, but might have to play around a bit with some of the ones that DO work. Nothing is carved in stone until you say it is!
