Yesterday, December 2, there was a fantastic tutorial about creating animated GIFs in Photoshop.  Have you ever thought about adding a flashing title to your layout?  This is so cool! Check out Judie’s tutorial here.   In addition to learning a fabulous new technique, you can download Etc by Danyale’s portion of the collab and an Alpha set from Artful Musings.

New Releases at The Digichick October 27, 2016

New releases at The Digichick October 27 are a virtual cornucopia of delight.  I had the pleasure of working with a couple of new products this week.  I created this layout with Circle of Friends template by Christaly using Created by Jill’s new kit, Roll with the Changes.

Layout #2 was created using Shades of Grey by Veronica Spriggs.  I love the colors in this mostly monochromatic kit.  It made me think of our countries current state of affairs where so many insist there is no definite right or wrong but many shades of grey that should impact our decisions.  I disagree with that philosophy but it is an indicator of the times in which we live.

New releases at The Digichick have been released!  Another week of fabulous and fun goodies. Remember all new releases are on sale through Sunday, so grab them now.  Kim’s new kit, Vintage Treasures, is perfect for this family photo.  I’m the little girl sitting on her Daddy’s lap. I made this layout for the October Give Me Space Challenge at The Digichick.  I love the brooch and the hat pin!  So perfect for 1960!

New Releases at The Digichick October 5, 2016

This week’s new releases at The Digichick will not disappoint!  I had the pleasure of working with Kimeric Kreation’s new kit Autumn Country Market.  Kim’s kit is fully loaded with goodies and gorgeous colors.  One thing I love about Kim, her and her CT always have tons of coordinating freebies in her Newsletter and blog.  So be sure to sign up for her Newsletter and check out her blog.  You’ll be glad you did!

This layout was used for the Tic Tac Toe Challenge at The Digichick.  This is one of my favorite challenges.  If you haven’t tried it, you should!  It’s always fun.

New Releases at The Digichick September 29, 2016

This week’s new releases are as diverse as the designers at The Digichick.  From celebrating Autumn to sports themes, there is something for everyone!  The new releases also kick-off DSD weekend.  That’s right, it’s been moved up a month from November to October.  Join us in The Digichick Forum for some fun and games!

Layout #1  This layout combines the Fall Fest Collection and Layered Up Template by Kimeric Kreations.  This kit is perfect for all your fall layouts and this template is a super setup to include many photos.  This layout is all about my hubby’s historical hometown and the beautiful foliage there in the fall.  Andy Griffith was also from Mount Airy and he used it to model the fictitious town of Mayberry.  Busloads of tourists still come to Mount Airy every day to visit The Snappy Lunch (Oprah ate one of the World Famous Pork Chop Sandwiches here), Floyd’s Barber Shop, Wally’s Service Station and other stores that carry Mayberry memorabilia.  It’s a lovely, quaint place in the mountains of North Carolina.  In September they celebrate Mayberry Days and in October, they have the Autumn Leaves Festival.  People come from all around. It’s a lot of fun!

Layout #2 I used Fall Fest Collection and a different Layered Up template for this layout because not everyone has the beautiful fall foliage but the kit is very versatile.

Layout #3  Akizo Designs’ new kit, Tennis Addict, has everything you’ll need to scrap you or your tennis player.  I used to play tennis.  Sadly, my biggest “mad skill” was keeping the ball boy on his toes!

New Releases at The Digichick September 22, 2016

Lots of lovely new releases at The Digichick this week!  Let me tell you, one of the hardest things about being on The Digichick creative team is that I can’t work with them all.  I worked with three of the new releases for September 22 and I was not disappointed.  Check them out.

Layout #1  Karen at Snickerdoodle Designs out-did herself with You Are My Sunshine.  This kit is huge!!  It’s filled with beautiful flowers, elements, papers, and so much more.

Layout #2  I had to create a page using Country Harvest from Alexis Design Studio.  One of the things I love most about North Carolina in the Fall is the glorious colors.  This kit is perfect.

Layout #3  Created by Jill’s new kit Simplicity is far from simple.  I love the colors and the elements are gorgeous.  I think it’s perfect for old family photos like this one of my uncle and cousin.

New Release at The Digichick September 15, 2016

Wow!  What a bevy of beautiful new releases this week at The Digichick.  I got to play with several new kits and I love the colors.  Red is a common thread in each of the kits I used and let me tell you, I love red!

Layout #1 What If You Fly from On A Whimsical Adventure was the first to catch my eye.  The theme of the kit speaks to my soul.  Fear of failure has kept me from doing a lot of things I want to do.   This layout is the first page of what I’m calling, My Flybook.

Layout #3 Oh my gracious!  Don’t you just love the colors in What’s Cookin’? by Kimeric Kreations.  You’ll also find loads of retro elements in this kit.

Layout #4  Sweet Connections by Alexis Design Studio is sweet indeed.  This kit is perfect for this photo of me, my parents, one of my brothers and my sweet German Shepard, Liebchen. Liebchen means sweetheart in german and oh what a sweet girl she was.  I still miss her.
