Sausan Designs

Yay! I'm so happy, I can finally let it out - I'm on the creative team for Sausan Designs! I applied not really thinking I'd get anywhere being a scrapping newby, but Sylvie and her team have given me a chance and let me on the team!

There are some fantastic scrappers on the team so I really am honoured to be there. Sylvie announced it today at CatScrap, DST and MSA.

I LOVE her designs - layouts with Sylvie's stuff looks like I've got sticky, inky fingers putting a layout together when we all know I've just been sitting at the pc clicking away.

So anyway, now I feel I have to work REALLY hard and make some beautiful layouts for Sylvie.

Here's one of my first using several of her kits.

Gift Tags

Do you like my gift tags? Isn't the deer cute? He's from the Karl & Karla kit available at Sausan Designs and CatScrap. Now all I have to do is finish off the gingerbread to go in the gift bags.



Ooo - I have some exciting scrap news to share, but I can't say anything just yet. Soon tho - very soon - I hope.


More Catherine Paturet

Yesterday I managed to get her Pele Mele kit for $1.00! I've been trying to scrap a photo of Joshua from new year's eve 2007 without any luck. Hopefully, this will be just the kit I need!

And today the vintage Pele Mele kit is on sale for one dollar too! Yay! I'm off to download...

BTW, I have no idea why the post below is in microscopic font! And no idea how to fix it - all the usual stuff just doesn't work...

Catherine Paturet

I have a new scrapbooking idol - Catherine Paturet. Check out her blog here with links to her amazing gallery and designs. Oh how I want my gallery to look like hers!

BTW, Catherine even left a little comment on this blog, but I actually have deleted my original post so the comment totally doesn't make any sense, but I wanted to delete the layout I posted and keep her comment as I'm so thrilled she passed by - so that's the reason why it doesn't make any sense (not because she's some mad, crazy woman! lol)

Why I Love PhotoShop

I have a ton of photos like this -

Not very interesting - taken just coz I've got the camera in hand and Joshua is in front of me. They're all lying around at the bottom of the computer files collecting virtual dust.

Then yesterday I was searching for photo of Joshua that I could use for a Christmas layout. I couldn't find anything suitable. So I decided to try erasing the background and extracting Joshua's face. The result was okay - nothing special. So then I took a look around the Oscraps shop and decided to buy 'Brighten Up' a PhotoShop action by Nina Scraps.

I was a bit nervous at running it as I've never used an action before. I needn't have been tho, it was easy to install and use (go to Windows and chose Actions, then click on the little arrow button to the right of the box. Click on 'Load' and then navigate to where you have saved your actions. Once you have found them click on 'Load' and PhotoShop will load the Actions into the menu for you to start using). The result is fantastic! I'm so pleased with it. The drab little photo at the top of this post has been transformed! I love how the photo now looks.

Take a look - I've used it below in a layout for the list challenge over at CatScrap.

Now I can't wait to get home and dust off some old photos and see how they brush up!


...for Sue and Barbie using some of Joshua's artwork made into a tag with a circular punch and all tied together with ribbon.

On Father Christmas

Joshua after meeting Father Christmas:
Father Christmas likes me
He gave me candy
How will he know how to find me?
Why is he wearing Jack Sparrow's boots?
