A new challenge at CLD

I’m very pleased to be hosting a new challenge at Color Line Design, the TNT Challenge (aka Trends ‘n Techniques).   You can check out the first challenge here, and this is the page I created for it.  Hope you can play along!  See you at CLD.

A Piece of My History

Paper Pack Freebie

March 23, 2008

It’s Sunday, I think that means time for another little freebie!  This time its a paper pack, a little bit grungy and wrinkly in soft pastel colors. 

As well, I’ve decided to start offering a few freebies through my Color Line Store, rather than 4shared as I did in the past.  It only takes a minute to sign up, you’ll only have to do it once, and you will not need to go through PayPal or enter a credit card number when you go through checkout.  Sorry, this link is no longer available.

Another Free Template for You!

March 16, 2008

First a couple updates, then the freebie!  🙂   I’ve made a couple changes to my blog, to hopefully make things easier for you.  On the right, you’ll see that I’ve added an RSS feed, so you can subscribe to the feed and see updates easily.  Also, I’ve added a button that will take you straight to all the digital scrapbooking totorials that I offer, for those of you who want to see them in one easy spot.

And now the freebie.  I’ve been having fun making templates, so thought I’d offer another one as a freebie!  This one lets you scrap 3 photos, and includes a journalling spot with a lifted corner. 

Here’s the template:

And here’s a layout I created with it:

Some answers for you

March 15, 2008

Wow, I had great response to the last video tutorial, and there were a few questions in some of the comments that were left, so I thought I’d answer them here. 

Q: What a great tutorial! Wonderful for newbie scrappers! Mind if I link to your blog (not the video) so others can come see it?

A: Absolutely!  Please feel free to link back to my blog, I’ve created a link on the side so visitors can easily find the tutorials.

Q: Do you have plans on making a tut on how to make safety pins look realistically pinned? I can never get those things to look as though they are going through the paper.

A: I will add this tutorial to my to-do list, watch for it to arrive soon!

Q: Can we please have the video tutorials as .pdf files as well, so we can go over and over till we get it right please !!! please !!!! please !!!  Just love your tuts, they are clear and precise and easy to follow !!!

A: I would love to be able to provide the tutorials in pdf format as well, however my time is a little restricted right now.  I will definitely keep that in mind for the future.

Q: Great tuorials. Wish the other tutorials could be downloaded as well. I find it more convenient to watch the movie when I am not on line. Any chance of some of those being revised to be downloaded?

A: Yes.  I was thinking about doing that anyway, but knowing there’s some demand for it makes my decision easy!  I will post the details as soon as the videos are ready to go.

Thanks for all your comments and feedback, I’m glad you’re getting so much out of the tutorials!  Have a great day everyone!
