Tips, Tutorial and $2 specials oh my!

Tuesday, November 01, 2011
Long time no talkie!  I'm sorry… I usually pride myself on being able to stay on top of things, but the last couple weeks got totally out of control for me here… just come over and take a look at my house! lol  It is definitely showing the results of the chaos.

Besides helping Stacey at Digitals start up some new Bi-Weekly Newsletters, besides writing and recording the new classes for Renee Pearson and lots of tutorials, and besides getting ready to start up a new Designer's Studio and an Artist's Journey for life & art journaling starting in 2012 with two awesome designers Aria and Angie Young… It was my Miss Bailey's birthday yesterday, yes my Hallow's Eve grand-child.  Look out world because she got those roller blades she's been wanting! lol

And it was trick or treating of course, and I swear we had over 300 children come knocking at our door, and to top it off, it is also the mark of new years in our house.  It's the time for honoring the dead and those who have passed and a time for looking inward and the beginning of a new year and the beginning of Winter.  Which I did not get to celebrate in my normal fashion unfortunately.  Today I will spend the majority of the day cleaning, reorganizing and getting my head back that I left somewhere under all this chaos. "I'm right on top of that Rose!" lol I digress… So ready to take a deep breathe today and regroup.

I did manage to create an affirmation page this week to mark my new focus for the new year.  Too many things in my life have been slipping by the past year and I need to stop and enjoy the moments with my family.  So I made this reminder to myself to take that time. :)  Call it my New Years resolution.

I created the background from 3 cardstock papers and used my brushes to mask off pieces and parts to create a whole new background paper, which I'm sure will end up in one kit or another eventually. lol   Then I added in some pieces from my Beautiful Mess 1 kit  and some of my art used to create that kit to finish it off and did my personal journaling.  I also managed to create a new tutorial on How to Pin a Tag using masking, which you can find at Digitals now too.  Click the preview for the PDF at Digitals.

It was the mini tutorial in the NEW Building Skills with Digitals Newsletter yesterday.  If you don't get these and want to, you can find the subscription for them here at Digitals.  And you receive a wonderful new kit from Amanda too when you sign up!

Also featured in today's newsletter I have a $2 sale item.   My kit Tween Years! Hurry though, it's only on sale till midnight EST at 67% off.  I made this kit at the request of my teenage daughter for some artwork she wanted for her room.  15 papers and 34 Elements.  Pretty good deal for $2. :)  There are two other $2 specials in the newsletter too from two wonderful Designers.

I also uploaded some tip cards this week too!  You can find them here below or in Digitals Tech Talk Forum too if you prefer.   

I also have uploaded a re-release of my Blue Winter kit in the shop today.   This was one of my most favorite kits last winter so I decided to bring it back after a few requests.  Make sure you look at the additional images because this is not just a Winter or Holiday kit! 

Well, off to get a little work done and then work on getting this house back in order. :) Then it's time to crack the whip again on myself.  Do the cycles really ever end? lol
Have an awesome week everyone!

    Cilenia - I was just window shopping in your store and really liked your frame overlays. Unfortunately they came only in rectangular sizes for photos -- 8 1/2 x 11, 8 x 10, 4 x 6, etc. Do you have these designs available in 12 x 12? I'd love some square ones for page framers.

    Hi Flowersgal! I have some different ones and will upload, but I will work on some more 12x12 page frames as I like them a lot too. Thanks for asking for!

    I adore that affirmation page! Love the way you hung the safety pin on the page. I finally got around to opening a new blog. ♥
