In all honesty, I could tell you what to do (though I don't have time right now) but I really feel that if you figure it out yourself it will be a lot more rewarding. To do that:
figure out which traits are dominant, recessive, line bred
pair up geckos that share recessive traits if you want that trait to show
look at the possibilities and decide which interests you the most


If you're having a particular problem figuring something out, I'm sure someone can help.
THat said, I would imagine that sooner or later someone will just tell you what to do.
Good luck with it.

Agreed with Aliza, it's more fun once you get to know the genetics behind these leopard geckos, and know what you are breeding. There's a lot more than just mating one gecko with another. Sometimes a combination doesn't make sense, for obvious reasons.

What I will advise is to visit the leopard gecko genetics calculator (http://www.reptilecalculator.com/leopard-gecko-morph-calculator/). From there you can figure out what you'll get when combining what morphs. It's more fun to breed what you want to breed, rather than do what other people tell you to do. You may get results that you aren't too excited about. So look at what you enjoy the most first, then figure out if you can get there by what you have available on hand. Use the calculator to help you figure out the genetics and outcomes.
