Cheers for all the info, I like the idea of using a past/old template and using pre-selected photos/kits. A very sensible idea, off to have a looksy around to see what I can come up with

Hey ladies, just wanted to give you a couple of hints that I use in any SS I participate in...(just suggestions, not requirements)
1. I always use a template, it's easier, especially when there is a specific number of photos....I go find a template with that number. If you have more photos than is required, make it a two page spread...you can do the second page later!
2. I use one kit only. (Now I might go find one flower or ribbon from another kit, but kits are made to be used at once, every color matching, etc.) It really makes things much easier.
3. I always use drop-shadow styles. It's so much easier, when the drop shadows are already done and you can just chose the DS for paper, photos, flowers, stitching, etc. Saves so much time and gives an easy finish to a page!
4. I don't do this, but would, especially with this marathon...do your journaling before hand. If you pick your pictures early, put them in a folder together, then open a word or text document, type your journaling and save it in the same folder!

You can all do it! SSs are so much fun. I hope to be joining y'all for most of them if possible!?!? (Saturday will be harder as my kids are in Ski School and I"m not sure where I'll be since I don't ski but have to take them! )

Thank you Andrea, these instructions helped me as a host too!

I have the second to the last SS on Sunday, by then the Girls will be tired so I am planning to make mine as flexible as possible. It will be awesome!

This are great tips, heather! I especially like the idea of getting the journaling done.

Also make a "Credits" Template...

Mine looks like this:

This is for SS Marathon #: (put the number of the SS here) Hosted by: (put name of the Host here)
Kit (Put Kit name here) by (put the name of the Designer here)
List rest of other elements here:



I keep this and then I just have to copy and paste it in the Credits box. It helps a lot!

Thanks!

I am making them ahead of time so the only thing I have to add is the Kit name and the Designer so my page looks like this:

This is for SS Marathon #29 Hosted by: Holly
Kit Enjoy the Moment by Sahlin Studio

This is for SS Marathon #30 Hosted by: Julie
Kit Sprite by Brittish Designs

This is for SS Marathon #29 Hosted by: Carmen
Kit Hollywood by Kellybell Designs

and so on...
