Snow Animation Tag tutorial

Just wanted you all to know that the tutorial is up at my tutorial blog. Take a look!

Autumn Scrap as promised

Well, it is later than I said I would get it up but you know how that is! Also I wrote a new tutorial that I will be putting up on my tutorial blog after this. I hope you can enjoy both. This kit has 12 papers and a bunch of elements PLUS a quick page.  More on the quick page in a bit.

Before I show you the quick page, I want to give credit for the fall flowers in this kit. They are freebies from "Justie" at Just Creations. She does give commercial use for her freebies but please check her Terms of Use completely if you use them. There are no posts on her blog now but you can still reach her using Comments. I hope she isn't ill!  There are two zips for the kit just to make it a bit easier for downloading.  Zip 1 and Zip 2 at my 4shared.
Okay now on the Quick Page, the preview has photos of my two oldest grandchildren, Mikey and Aly.  Let me tell you the frames I made are BIG so I had to use the biggest photos I could find of them.  I wanted to leave the frames as they are in the kit but please remember that you might want to open the photos you want to put in them as well as the frames so you can make sure they fit right.
The link for the Quick Page is here.

Aly was on the junior varsity tennis team of her high school this year. Mikey is a senior and he plays on the varsity baseball team.  I am really proud of them both.  I hope you enjoy the kit and quick page. I will announce here when the tutorial is ready. It is not a scrap tutorial but an animated tag one.  Special credit to Donna at Learning PS for All Yahoo group for the tutorial on the cluster frame!

Hello all! We are back to my favorite season...autumn!  I just had to do a new alpha for you that I call "Goldleaf".  The capital letters have a leaf but I have also included lower case and numerals that are plain gold.  I hope that you enjoy and I am also working on a new kit for the season that I hope to upload at the end of the week. There is no drop shadow on the letters so you can add them.  The letters are large not only in size but are 300 dpi if you want to print them.  I hope you enjoy the alpha.  You can download it here.

Old Iron Alpha

I bet you thought I had fallen off the edge of the earth! Besides doing my normal "life" stuff, I decided to take lessons in Photo Impact. I have to tell you that I really like how realistic things look when made in PI. Anyway, I am hoping to make more things from "scratch" to share here. However, this alpha was done using an action and I love its old, rustic look - you can almost smell the rust, can't you? lol

These letters are very large but feel free to size them down for your needs. You can download the zip here. Please enjoy!

Beach Mini-Kit

Hello! It has been some time since I have shared anything with you and I decided to take some of the things I have been learning in Photoshop and Paint Shop Pro to make and/or finish some kits. I could have gotten caught up in the holiday thing but there are already so many holiday kits out there and more are made each year, right?
So, I am going to create what mood strikes me from now on so I don't make myself crazy trying to come up with something that is seasonal when I really don't want to do it. Make sense? Anyway, I had shared a quick page so I could show off my granddaughters to you a while back and I decided to make a mini-kit with the beach theme colors. I will share some other beach-specific or marine-specific add-ons later.

The kit is about 13mb so it shouldn't take you long to download it. As usual, there are no drop shadows on the papers or elements. You get the kit at my 4shared here. Please enjoy!

New Quick Page

Hello, all, last weekend my family went to Santa Cruz and my daughter-in-law sent me some wonderful photos via email. Well, I just had to make a layout using the photos, didn't I? The preview below all contain their photos but the quick page itself, of course, has no photos. The title bar is on a separate layer and can be deleted...it is just for placement if you want/need it. There are two sizes of this quick page: 12x12 inches and 6x6 inches. You are welcome to size them smaller for your use.

Here are the links for you: 12x12 link is here and the 6x6 link is here.

I do have some sad news. The only store that I sell design for, Secret City Treasures, is closing its "doors" on October 31. A number of issues came into play that made the decision for the owner and it is with reluctance she has to close it. However, everything in the store is on sale. All my stuff is 50% off as well as other designers' creations. Be sure and take a look for the end of the month. You don't want to miss out on any bargains!

Oak alpha freebie

It is sure easy for the week to spin by, isn't it? I hope you enjoyed the gold alpha and here is the alpha I made a few nights ago. Again, the letters here are quite large that can be headers or re-sized for other use on your scrap pages.

There is no drop shadow on the letters and they are created at 300 dpi as always. You can pick up the file here.
