Black and White Photos


Hi, all. Welcome to another Geek Lab post by me, Aliza. Once again, I present to you a layout using the fabulous May Kit, Northern lights. This kit is loaded with colors. It’s loaded with papers. It’s loaded with embellishments. There is a lot to work with.

Speaking of a lot of work, we just finished celebrating the holiday of Passover. Like many holidays out there, it’s a wonderful time to spend with friends,  family, and community. It is filled with stories and traditions. And, like many holidays out there, it is also A LOT of work. This year, I did not manage that extra work all that well. Which just meant I had much to do in  the last 36 hours before Passover began. I captured that and some other aspects of preparing for the holiday in this layout. (Pesach is the Hebrew name for Passover.)


Now, because there was a lot of green in two of my photos, I used that as an opportunity to use that beautiful green paper from the Attwell collection. I love that shade of green and the hand-drawn pattern! Because there were four different photos, and I was highlighting the green hues, I converted two of the pictures into black and white photos to keep the color scheme cohesive.


You can convert photos to black and white in a variety of apps right on your phone, but in this case I did it in Photoshop Elements. It is quite simple.

Open up your photo, and click “enhance.”

From there, scroll down to “covert to black and white.”

You will have a few black and white options to choose from. Just click on the one you like best (You can preview how each one looks first), and voila!

See? Simple.

Thanks for stopping by!



Adding Dimension. A Little at a Time.


Hi, all! It’s Aliza here. I am excited to be here sharing this lovely May kit. So many gorgeous and bright colors in there, and it is just filled with stuff to work with. I also bought the Attwell Sticky Notes, which I have been turning to over and over again to use on my layouts.

Now I tend to be a flat scrapper. By which I mean that my layouts don’t often have tons of dimension to them. It’s one of those things that I admire in others, but when it comes to my own work, I tend not to add very much.

When I got to work on this layout, it was like all my others. As I neared the end, and I searched through the exclusive ephemera pack to add a few embellishments, I was most drawn to the floral pieces that matched up to the exclusive card that I used on the layout. And when I moved the flowers around the layout some more, I liked them right above their matching counterparts. So that is right where I put them. With a little pop dot.


A quick and easy way to add a little dimension for those of you who like just a little.

I can’t wait to share more, and I am excited for all of you to get your hands on this kit!
