I Think I'll Have Tea @ MScraps!

This is late--we've been out of town, and DH learned at the last minute that he needed to take his laptop with him to take notes--no paper handouts this year! So I'm only now getting serious access to the net... Anyway, this new kit is still on sale till Tuesday, I think (whenever the MScraps sale ends). Even though I called it I Think I'll Have Tea, it's more about playing grown-up than it is about really having tea. Hope you'll enjoy it and have great fun with it!

And of course there's great art to go along with it:

I realized that it had been forever since I gave you guys something, and since I was working on a layout tonight and created this, I thought I'd share it! Just click on the pic to download: it's a large wordart, and swirly brush (2 separate .png files). Have fun!

AlphaFrames 2

And today, on an entirely different note, I bring you AlphaFrames 2 at MScraps! Here you get two entire frame alphas, one large, one small (cuz if you reduce the large ones too much the line completely fades). Fun for all kinds of things!

And even a hybrid project by Ana Paula:

I'd Love To!

I'd Love To is my new kit @ The Digichick, all full of lovey-dovey softness in time for Valentine's, and full of color. It's really good for masculine layouts too!

Here are some layouts of course, for your delectation (hopefully ;)):

Gorgeous pages, eh? Anyway, it's 20% off till Friday!

AlphaFrames, and AlphaYou!

Ok, my typographical mania continues, culminating this week in frames (AlphaFrames), AND, the opportunity for YOU to request whatever your little heart desires, either as a frame, a strip, or a capital letter shape. Here are the pre-made frames:

And here are the personalized AlphaYou examples:

I'm so excited about being able to make something special *just for you*! Each one takes about 2 hours to make, so unless I'm totally flooded with orders, I should be able to get it to you within 3 business days (and, knowing me, probably a lot faster!). Wouldn't that make for an impressive present layout, though? Even a canvas!

Here are some samples with both the frames, and the personalized wordart:

By Vera:

*sigh* I love my CT members... =)

Anyway, as usual, 20% till Monday, so snap 'em up! =)

Mini Sale @ The Digichick

35% off selected items this week at the Digichick, such as this 2011 calendar!

If it doesn't end in 9 or 0, it's on sale... *lol*

Thursday, January 6, 2011


I have an awesome set of templates today on sale @ MScraps (20% till Monday!) called Rewind. There are 12 double-page sets, one for each month, plus a front and back cover--almost everything you'll need to make a whole album (I didn't include the spine because it depends on who's printing your final album).

The templates are completely layered .psd files (just let me know if you need the .tiff files instead in a note) with clipping masks for all the pieces of "film" that you see along the pages, making for a super quick and easy multi-multi-photo layout! I also included 4 "clean" film edges which you can match to the masks as they're laid out now. Just check out the sample pages below...

Have a great weekend! I got a pre-opening sheet of my new stamps (they'll be on sale February 1st), and I can't wait to play with them... =)
