Two new paper packs and another video tutorial

May 27, 2008

I’ve just released two new paper packs, this time they’re wonderfully rich textured solids; Jewel Tones and Pretty Pastels. Each pack includes 10 12″x12″ papers at 300dpi.  They’re 40% off for the remainder of the week, along with all my other paper packs, which you can grab in my Scrapdish store.

And, since I’m focusing on paper this week, I also have another video tutorial for you!  This one shows you how to combine photographs with digital scrapbook paper to create your own custom background.  You can download the high resolution version here, or watch it below.  Enjoy!

This page shows the background created during the video tutorial.

Folded & Rolled Corners Video Tutorials and a Paper Pack Sale

May 25, 2008

The rolled and corners tutorial on my blog, the first ones I created, have been extremely popular, so I finally decided to record them as video tutorials.  You now have two options for viewing them, you can either watch them on-screen in YouTube format, or you can download the higher resolution version here:

Also, since these tutorials are all about creative ways to use digital paper, I decided to put all my paper packs on sale at 40% off for the week!  Here’s a sneak peak at my packs, and you can grab them in my Scrapdish store.

New! Frame it Up Templates

May 18, 2008

I’ve just released two sets of frame templates in my store at Scrapdish, Circles & Ovals and Squares & Rectangles.  There are 10 templates in each set, and each set also includes a video tutorial that shows you unique ways to use the templates on your pages.  The Circles & Ovals video teaches you how to use blending modes with the templates, and the Squares & Rectangles teaches you how to use clipping masks to add decorative edges to your photographs.  The sets can also be purchased as a bundle.  The individual sets and the bundled set are 25% off until this Friday.

If you would like to try a couple templates before you buy, you can download a freebie here.  The freebie includes oval and rectangular templates, and also comes with a video tutorial showing you how to cut the templates out of digital scrapbook paper.

Finally had a little time to scrap

May 12, 2008

I hope everyone had a great Mother’s Day!  I got spoiled a little bit, got to relax while the housework and laundry were done for me, so I did a little scrapping.  Mother’s Day is always a little bittersweet for me now, I lost my mom four years ago to breast cancer, just a few days after Mother’s Day.  So this layout is about her, even though it doesn’t include a picture of her.

Grandma\'s Love

Products used in the layout:  Orange Blossoms Paper Pack, Build-a-Flower, Pin on Some Bling!, Dress Me Up Alphabets – Gold ‘n Glass, Spring Blooms, In Stitches.  All products by Red Leaf DigiScrapping, available at Scrapdish.
