Free December Desktop

I made a desktop for you with Home for the Holidays.  It's yours free!  The file is a layered .psd file.  There's space for 3 photos and I have clipping masks for them.  For those of you who don't know how to use clipping masks, it's really simple! Just move the photos you want to the top of the desktop file. Select one of the +photo layers and move your photo above it.  Hover your mouse between the photo and the +photo layer and hold the Alt key (Option if on a Mac).  When you see two interlocking circles, click with your mouse and your photo should conform itself to the boundaries of the mask.  Hit Ctrl + T to get your transform box and you can resize your picture to fit and rotate it if you want. Easy peasy!  If you have questions or get stuck, feel free to use the Contact Me page.

One thing to keep in mind...the screen resolution on my monitor is 1366 x 768 so that is the size I made the desktop.  You may need to resize it to fit your monitor.  The easiest way to do this is to open a document the size of your screen and then move the desktop file to the top of it and resize using the transform handles. :)

Hope you like it!

Subway Art

A new Mouse, Paper, Scissors class has started at Jessica Sprague and the first project was way too much fun!  Jessica showed up how to use typography to make a subway art poster for our homes or to give away as gifts.  I've got so many ideas of things I can do this with...I'll never get them all done.  But I DID get this one done so here it is!

I'm also working on a new kit to put in the store.  I'm hoping it will be next week.  I'll let you know when it's ready.

New at KaBoks

I've got some new products in the store at kaBoks.  Fright Night is now completely complete. :)  I have added svg files (cut files) to coordinate with this collection.  They are available individually as well as all the svg files in one collection (you get a discount buying the collection).

Also, I have a Christmas kit ready for you.  There are 4 kits that make up this collection.  The two paper kits and 2 element kits are sold individually or you can buy them all together in one collection for a discounted price. I may have a collection add-on soon so keep an eye out for it.

Don't forget about Digital Scrapbook Day!  Look in the post below this one (Nov 2) and you will find a 30% off coupon good for Saturday and Sunday at kaBoks.  New things are being added weekly!  You can also find all of us in the forums.  Be sure to stop by and say hi!

Now in the midst of all this, Ali had her 12th birthday yesterday!  How in the heck did that happen????  I'm sooo not ready for her to be 12 yet.  She's been so excited about moving up to Young Women's at church and hanging out with her friends that already had their birthdays.  And guess who forgot to take a picture yesterday!  With the most beautiful day!! I didn't think about it until 5:30 when she, Caden, and Brannon were heading out the door.  And of course today it's cold.  Figures, right?  We'll do some celebrating Saturday and I've got the perfect place to take pictures.  I'll share them with you when I get them. 

Enjoy your day!
