Some Great resource sites I found

I am always looking for new things to improve the photos I take and the scrap pages I made. I found this wonderful site to get photoshop actions to give your photos some really cool effects. Its called Coffeshop. I have only had a little time to play around and this is the first attempt at using one of the effects. The kit I used is Rose Marie, I Love You from Designs by Denise.

Here is another page using a different action. Kits used: Delicate & Intense, Magical Violet - Rena Designs

I am also a font junkie. I love collecting new fonts and just discovered this wonderful site with some different fonts from the same old ones alot of the other big sites have. Its called KevinandAmanda. Well worth a look.

2 kit releases by Nutkin Tailz Designs

My friend Lesley over at Nutkin Tailz Designs has been a very busy girl. Not only does she have a full time job, she has been packing up houses to move and has still had time to create 2 kits that have just been released for sale at Digital Craft Cottage.

The first is a mini kit called Beltane Beauty, a teaser if you will of the full kit which will be released in May next year (the time of Beltane for those in the Northern Hemisphere). The colours are just amazing in this one, I just love it and can't wait to see what the full kit will be like.

Here are 2 pages I created with this kit.

The second kit marks the opposite end of the wheel, which our Northern neighbours are heading into Samhain. It is called Samhain Secrets and it is perfect for all those pages marking this most important of festivals on the wheel of the year. It can also be adapted for use on halloween style pages. It is also available at DCC.

Here are some pages I created with this kit.

CT News

A little while ago I was looking around at one of the sites I upload pages too at the Forums for CT calls. A few caught my attention so I went and looked at their shops and then applied. Of course you never think you will get picked in a million years, there are so many very very talented scrapbookers out there. But a day or so later I got an email from a lovely lady would said she really like my designs and that she would love to have me join her team. I have just completed 2 pages on the first kit I downloaded of hers and it was such a pleasure. The kit was so inspiring, coming up with ideas was a breeze. The kit is called Shadow Memories and it was created by Designs by Denise.
Her wonderful kits can be found at her store at Scrap It Sassy. And if you are quick she is having a sale for the next 4 days, so you get some beautiful kits at a bargain price.

Here are the 2 pages I created with this kit
