Winding Down (20% off @ MScraps!)

Well, summer is winding down--only a few precious days to weave in and out of the hours as we please, instead of marching down the road of school time. I love this time of year--the leaves are just beginning to fall, it's no longer so darn hot outside, and the grasses are all a beautifully rich golden color that glows in the late afternoon sun. A little grateful, a little melancholy... all these things I tried to capture in my newest kit, Winding Down.

And oooooh la la, what wonderful layouts from the crew!

New Masks, With a Twist!

Hi everybody! I'm exhausted after sending out the MScraps newsletter and setting up the sale on the new products and everything (I'm helping out while Joyce is gone)--I'm not sure how she does this twice a week! *laugh*

But I also have a new product out this week called DoubleMasks (20% off till Monday, as usual). Sure enough, as the name suggests, there are two of them per "unit." But they're not the same: one is a photo mask that has at least one clear edge, then fades off in the other direction, and the other is grunge/splatter to be placed in the background.

This setup enables you to play with layering two photos, or one photo twice with the background one enlarged, for example; or layering a photo and a paper; or simply a photo with a plain color fill. Whatever way you choose to go with it, it's fun!

You get 10 unique masks in this kit:

And here is some of what has been done with them:

I hope to get a chance to scrap with these masks soon, too -- I've been cleaning the gutters on the house, and detailing the car. Something must be wrong with me! *giggles* Have a great weekend!

Photo Prints Up @ Etsy, & New Original!

Just got some photo prints in today of some of my works, including my newest little koala, and also put the Butterfly Bells (beautifully shimmery in real life!) original up for sale. The koala original, entitled Noah Bear, has already gone to its new owner... =) Come visit my Etsy shop to see these and others!

Template Tuesdays 8 (Freebie Template)

I got ready ahead of time this week--hope you enjoy it! This template contains two "fading" photomasks. Just clip your photo to them (ctrl+g in PSE, alt+ctrl+g in CS+) and watch them fade out! It can be a fun effect. In my original layout, it faded into a big picture that I put in the background, which tied everything together. Just click on the preview to download (8.46Mb).


And here's the layout that inspired it:

Enjoy, and have a lovely week!
