Alpha Sheet Tutorial! Freebie Word Art!

For PSE and Photoshop

Have you ever downloaded a sheet of alpha and thought "How do I get the letters I want off?" Well here is the tutorial for you!!

You can click on any of the images (not the freebie) for a more detailed view!

Start by opening the file
select the Marquee tool (dotted line box or circle)

Make a square (you can do a circle but a square is easier)

Have both windows side by side so that you can
drag and drop into your layout

Don't forget to switch to move tool!

Thanks too Dyabel Designs (for the alpha)
Snowflake Beach Designs (styles and paper from So Wonderful Kit click to get to her store)

Have a beautiful, creative and inspired day!

Firecracker Freebie

Hi everyone, Megan here. It's been a while since I did a post so I thought I'd post up a quick page for you all with our latest collab kit. Life has been totally crazy the past 2 months so I haven't had much time to scrap:P I've been really bummed about that! So today I decided to ignore all of my motherly chores and scrap! I hope you enjoy the quickpage and keep coming back for more free goodies!

Here's my layout that I did.

And here's the quickpage for you. If you haven't picked up the whole kit yet get it here. I hope you all have some great memories to scrap with this awesome kit!

Freebie and TECHY THURSDAY!!!

I am sorry I missed last week. I had company.
I am hopefully making up for it with this tech blog!!

I am really excited about this one!!
So we have overlays that have no color and you want to use it but it's too dark!

For Photoshop and PSE

1. Start with the overlay

2. Create another blank layer then fill with color of your choice. Here I chose a rose pink.

3. Make sure this layer is under your overlay layer, like so.

4. Next chose the "Normal" drop down menu (while on the overlay layer which should be on top!!)

5. Scroll down until you see "Soft Light"

6. Voila you have a beautifully textured paper!! :)

I don't do a lot of word art. I was inspired though by Phil Vassar (one of my favorite Country Singer/Song writers! "Just another day in paradise" is one of my favorite songs. Its been a rough time for all of us lately with the economy and just being adults!! LOL

So I wanted to remind myself how good my life really is. I am living my own private paradise, even if it's not perfect!

Thank you for reading!! I love to read your comments so please leave some love!

Have a beautiful, creative and inspired day!

Firecracker Collab Freebie!!

Happy 4th of July everyone!! This is one of my favorite holidays and I was so happy that we were able to bring this great kit to you in time for all of those picnic and parade pictures that I am sure you are bound to have very soon!

Please use it and think about what a great country that we live in and for all of the things that we do have. I know times are tough for a lot of us but I always think of how much worse it could be...I don't know how I would fare in another country that didn't allow the freedoms that I have here or the rights that I am assured to have under the Constitution. I am quite proud to be an American and more than that we (Megan, Chanin, Val, Amy and myself, Belinda) would love to see what you can do with this kit and your holiday pictures.

Please email any layouts to we are always looking for additional talent!!
