New Tag Template, New Kit and Some News

Hello everyone!

I just wanted to let you all know that I'm selling at a new store.  The old store, Scrappin' With Friends, sadly shut down a couple of months ago.  I wish the co-owners, Sizzel and Crystal, nothing but the best, and hope that the future holds nothing but good things for them and their families.  I am now selling my items at P4DSDesigns.  I am in the process of repackaging my items so they are getting up there slowly but surely, and I even have a new kit available called Love N Hearts:

The kit comes in both full size and tagger size and is just right for all those Valentine's Day tags and other creations!  So bounce on over the P4DS right now and check it out.

Also, I have a new tag template for you all, available in both .psp and .psd format:

If you make anything with it, I'd love to see it!!

New Years Word Art

Just a short post to share a word art with you all for the upcoming New Year .... since it doesn't have the actual year on it, you can use it for future New Years, too!

Here is a preview of the word art - comes both with and without the 'bubbles':


(the preview shows it in a pale blue - the word art templates are actually grayscaled - and the white background is on its own layer)

and here are the download links - both are in .psd format so they can be used in both PSP and Photoshop (files are layered)

Hope you enjoy and if you use it, I'd love to see what you use it in!!

Here is a tag I made using the word art and scraps from a blog train freebie of mine from a few years back:


And to everyone, may you have a wonderful, joyous, prosperous 2013!!

New Tag Template From Me!

I know, it's been quite a while since I posted a freebie for you all.  I actually made this in response to a challenge that a list member put forth on the group Snaggers Annonymous, which is a copyright compliant group I help moderate.  The challenge was to make a "smart aleck" tag template, so I did, and then made a tag with the template for the person that put up the challenge.  So, I figured while I was at it, I'd put the template here for anyone interested in snagging it up -- here is a preview of the template:


The template comes in 2 different formats: .pspimage and .psd

And here is the tag I made with the template:


And here is one that my friend, Astro made for me:
isn't it awesome??

Thanks for looking and please, if you snag the template, leave some love?

Good News

Well I have some wonderful news!  The store I am selling at - Scrappin' With Friends - will NOT be closing!!  I am so glad to hear this as I have made some good friends there and really hated to see the store close.  So anyone looking to purchase my scrapping items may still do so!!

My Selling Status

I am just writing to let you all know that I have put in my notice at Sunflower Scraps Boutique and as of April 28, 2011, I will no longer be selling my scraps there.  I wish all the designers and the store continued success.  Additionally, as it stands now, my other store - Scrappin' With Friends - is set to close down end of May.  So if any of you are interested in purchasing any of my items, you might wanna scoot on over to one of them and grab them while you can.  I am not sure if SWF will be doing a 'closing sale' - if they do, I will probably take part.  If/When that happens, I will keep you posted.

Currently I am not sure what I will be doing once I am no longer with these stores.  I have not had much luck in regards to selling scraps - mine just don't seem to 'interest' many people (and for those who HAVE purchased my items, I wish to say right now, THANK YOU!!  It is very very much appreciated!!).  If I thought that there were people interested in purchasing them, then I would continue to find another store and try selling however at this point, I am undecided, so if anyone would like to give some input, I'm all ears.

I will continue to offer freebies here and there, participate in blog trains as the opportunity arises and will see what else comes my way.  I am not quitting, just looking for some feedback to determine if continuing digital scrapping and designing is actually wanted by others, because honestly, if no one wants it or likes it or will use it, why bother?  It's just nice to know you are liked and appreciated, that's all.

Anyways, for those who have followed me, for those who have liked me, downloaded my stuff, and even purchased my scraps, I sincerely, genuinely thank you.  It is because of you that I have hung in this long.  I hope that you stick around, check back from time to time and continue to find stuff that you like and will use.

If anyone uses my scraps, templates (etc), please feel free to share them with me!  I would love to see it - and would love to show it off here on my blog!!
