Finally Fall and Freebie!
Well, you know I am the type that is easily amused. I find shapes in clouds, love taking pictures of any flowers I ever see, just imaging creating something to showcase a new color story I see, learning anything new relating to digital designing. So imagine how totally over the moon happy I was to meet someone very very talented digital designer at a recent crop. Here facebook page in named Cajun Diva Scraps by Michelle . And she introduced me to a website that was having a kit share contest to show case a wonderful fall color theme. Her kit was just perfect for the men in your life!
The site was Digital Scrapbooking Studio . Now you have to join they're forum to receive the free kits, but
I had to. I just had to. And boy oh boy, did I find some treasures. I bought a few digital things to use with Photoshop Elements, One of them was a "plaid maker". You just buy the "action", load it into your Photoshop Actions toolkit, use any paper or image you have, hit a few buttons and voila, you have a coordinating plaid to match! Really! Seriously! It was that easy. Thank you so much Jilbert's Bits of Bytes for this incredible, magical tool! Here are the image and coordinating plaid I created with this wonderful tool!
Then, as if that wasn't enough fun to keep me floating for days, I played with another PSE tool from the same site and made a kaleidoscope print too!!!! I cannot tell you how excited I am! Just about to bust....
Yes, this kaleidoscope print was made using the vintage turkey picture above. Really! From the turkey picture.
So the only logical next thing for me to do was to make a set of planner stickers with them. It has finally turned a little cooler down here. And I couldn't wait any longer to play with fall colors. If you would like to print these stickers ( they are sized to fit a Mambi Big Happy Planner), just right click on the picture and save yourself a copy.
I want to offer a big, huge, heartfelt thank you to Michelle for sharing her time with me at the crop. And wish all of you and yours a very happy fall!
Have fun crafting,
P.S. The "My favorite color is Fall" quote is from my dear friend Charlene M. She does fall better than anyone I know!
