Mixed Media Overlays

Posted by on Aug 29, 2015 in Commercial Use, Scrapbooking | 1 comment

Good morning! This week I have some Mixed Media Overlays for you. There are 2 packs that I’ve appropriately named Mixed Media 6 and Mixed Media 7. These can be used as overlays to add movement and texture to your papers or you could use it as a base and add color to it. They’re also perfect for Personal Use to jazz up a blah paper that you want to use.

These overlays are on sale for 30% off thru August 30th. You can find them on my Mixed Media Overlays Collection page or just click on one of the previews below.

Happy Wednesday!!! A couple of weeks ago there was a sale on all CU brushes at theStudio. I got some feedback from folks saying they wished it also included my PU brushes. While it isn’t a storewide sale, I’ve decided to have a PU Brushes Sale. All of my Personal Use Brushes are 40% off thru September 6th (where the heck has to time gone????).

Happy Saturday!!! I’m here to tell you about 2 new Commercial Use Products – Templates Dolls 2 and Mask Blanks 1.

Under the Sea Freebies

Posted by on Aug 20, 2015 in Freebies, Personal Use, Scrapbooking | 0 comments

Good morning. I thought I’d stop by to tell you about some freebies for my newest collection Under the Sea. If you haven’t already gotten the one I posted yesterday, go get it.


I also have a new freebie on my Facebook page. It’s a beautiful cluster done by Judy.


AND, there’s going to be another cluster by Judy in this weekend’s newsletter. If you’re not already a subscriber, just type your email address into the box in the upper right column and join us.


Short and sweet … now I need to get back to organizing my new craft room so I can take some pictures.

Under the Sea

Posted by on Aug 19, 2015 in Freebies, Personal Use, Scrapbooking | 2 comments

It’s been a while since I’ve released a new collection, but I think it was probably worth the wait. Called Under the Sea, it all started when I did a mixed-media mermaid. At the time, I was just playing around, but when I finished her, I just had to do something. That’s when “Under the Sea” was born.

Check out my previews … just click on one to go to that product’s page or click **here** to see the entire collection.

Kaleidoscope Action redux

Posted by on Aug 18, 2015 in Freebies, Scrapbooking, Tutorials | 0 comments

This is just a quick note to tell you about Toiny’s article on theStudio blog. Her enthusiasm for my Kaleidoscope Action really brings a smile to my face. Not only did she record her “play” session, she’s offering up her creations as a freebie.

I also wanted to remind you that all of my CU products are 30% off thru this Sunday (excluding bundles which are already a great bargain).

Now that my new craft room is almost in order, I’m gearing up to do a video or two myself … in particular, showing how this works in PSE … along with the magic behind it. And I’ll also post a few photos of my new “office.”

Kaleidoscope Action

Posted by on Aug 15, 2015 in Commercial Use, Freebies, Scrapbooking, Tutorials | 5 comments

I’ve been doing a lot of hinting, but now it’s time for the reveal – my newest action called Kaleidoscope Action. This action is something that I’ve been working on for over a year. It was a request from one of my customers who saw something similar at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. At the aquarium, there was a camera set up with a monitor beside it. You stood in front of the camera and your image would be turned into a kaleidoscope. It’s taken me a long time to get it to the point where I felt comfortable about releasing it … and I definitely plan to make it a big deal!!!

Here’s the preview. This will be 30% off thru August 23rd; even better, my entire CU store is on sale for 30% off because you’re probably going to want some overlays or brushes or even one of my other paper maker actions to go along with it.

Hot Pockets!!!

Posted by on Aug 12, 2015 in Freebies, Personal Use, Sales, Scrapbooking | 2 comments

Well, I’m finally back to making pocket templates, but with a bit more variety to the sizes. I’ve also “rebranded” them as Hot Pockets and that means there’s going to be more. Pocket scrapping is perfect for creating those quick pages with lots of photos and snippets of journaling. These will be on sale for 30% off thru August 23rd.

Paint Strokes Brushes

Posted by on Aug 8, 2015 in Commercial Use, Sales, Scrapbooking | 0 comments


There’s a big sale going on over at theStudio – 40% off all Commercial Use Stamps and Brushes – and just for this sale, I’ve released 4 brush packs called Paint Strokes. Thru Monday, all of my CU brushes, including these new ones, are on sale for 40% off. After that, my new brushes will be 30% off (thru next Sunday). However, the best deal is the bundle I created because it’s 50% off.

As with all my brushes, these are very high quality. In fact, my brushes must pass the same rigorous check that I put my elements through. Crazy? Maybe. But the reason I started making my own brushes was because I kept finding myself having to clean up all the artifacts that I was seeing with the brushes I was buying. Here’s a look at the previews …
