New Toys

I don't have any giveaways right now, but I'm working on something fun. I just wanted to share that I got a cordless mouse and tablet for Christmas. Once I get the hang of the tablet, I should be able to start doing a whole lot more fun things for digiscrapping. I can't wait to get started.

New Kit "Yes, Virginia" and Freebies (of course)

Hello all! I just couldn't resist making another Christmas kit. I figured most of us won't be digiscrapping our Christmas memories until after the Holiday, so it's still not too late to make another kit. One of my favorite pieces to read during Christmas is "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus". I decided to create a kit around the letter. The actual letter is quite lengthy, so I just put in my favorite parts. I've posted a close-up of the letter by itself because the kit preview doesn't do it justice. All the vintage artwork is from Digital Imagery Plus. If you haven't been to this site and you love retro greeting cards and such, you really must visit. Most of the images they give away are not under copyright, so you can use them for all your creative endeavours. I just love it! Today I am giving away the papers for the kit. Just click on the preview to download. Remember to send me links to any of the pages you create with my kits and please, please, please link back to my blog. I'd really appreciate it. Merry Christmas!

Snow Alpha Freebie

I made a fun, glittery snow alpha to go with the "Let It Snow" kit. I've also thrown in another snowflake for you. I loved the way the snowflakes turned out so much that I thought a matching alpha would be fun. Click on the preview to download. Enjoy and Merry Christmas!

"Let It Snow" Alpha Freebies

Hey everyone! Today I have the alphas for the "Let It Snow" kit. I like my alphas on one big sheet. This way I only have to open up one file, and I can keep going to it to copy and paste the letters. It seems simpler to me. Anyway, if you don't like my set up, I apologize ahead of time. Think of it this way; it's less to download :) One alpha is upper case and the other lower. Click on the preview to download. Again, I'd love to see what you guys make with the kit, so please leave me the links.

"Let It Snow" Elements Freebie

Hello guys! I'm back again as promised. I can't promise I'll always be this prompt. I can be a little scatter brained. Thanks for downloading the papers yesterday. It's nice to know people like my work. Today I have the elements for you. Remember to send me the links to pages you do with the kit. I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to see them. I'll be back soon with the alphas. Just click on the preview to download. Also, let me know if you have any problems with the files. I'm pretty new at this. I also use GIMP to create my kits, and I want to make sure everything works with PhotoShop. Merry Christmas!

Felt Overlay Freebie

I've wanted to make this for some time. I really like the look of felt elements in digiscraping kits. I know there are ways to create felt by blur and adding RGB noise, etc. I could never make it look right, so I made an overlay. This overlay works better if you use multiply in the layers mode. Then you can mess with the opacity to make it the right shade. It will make colors a bit darker (especially bright ones) so be prepared. Let me know if you have any major malfunctions. Have fun and I'd love to see what you create. Just click on the image to download.
