So for the card freebie I thought it would be nice to do a baby card - it seems there are always new babies come the summer time so what a perfect time for a baby card!! This one is pretty basic and can be used for either a boy or a girl or even as a shower card!
Click here to download and enjoy:)
Come back next Monday for a card template that you can be used for any occasion!!

In case you haven't figured this cool little feature out for yourself I've got a couple of screen prints to show you.
When you have a shape open in Photoshop and have applied the glitter layer style to it
double click on the fx item that says "pattern overlay" and this little window pops up:
Then you just move the little slider to the right or the left to make the glitter on the image bigger or smaller. Here I've move it up to make the glitter pieces bigger.
You can use this to help make your glitter look more realistic on the pieces you are applying it to. Here I used some of Flerg's gorgeous glitter, but I've got a little pack of glitter that I designed to go with the Hot Hot Hot! kit for the Design Star Blog Train. Its a very summer pack.
Thanks for stopping by. I'll be back on Wednesday with another freebie for you. Probably a template. Maybe a mini kit. It depends on what my creative ADD decides I need to do between now and then :)

next click the menu on the right of your layers palate (in CS it looks like a an arrow with lines next to it.)
OR you can click on the layer menu and select "create clipping mask" on a mac CS 4 the the shortcut is the "option, apple and G keys"
On PSE I believe it is "apple and G" for mac and I am assuming on a PC it would be "Cntrl and G". (if anyone know for sure please feel free to comment!)
That's it. Pretty cool! I love clipping masks. I can do sooooo much with them.
I used this frame in my freebie Quick Page. The kit is our Chillaxin' Collab kit!!

For this card I made a few extra pieces that I cut out and placed on top of the original with some foam tape to give it a more dimensional look. You can always add your own touch with ribbon, buttons or glitter!
Download the finished template here.
I used our very own Megan's "Little Critters" kit for this card. Make sure you download that while you are here!

I don't know about you but I have so much going on in a day, I don't have time to really contemplate color schemes. I usually download what ever kit is close and adjust them accordingly.
Well now I have three cool tools. For the digi scrapper who wants help picking colors for that great picture, and for the designer who needs to come up with the perfect pallete for the new kit that needs to get done!
For the scrappers out there who look at pic and just can't choose the right scheme to go with it, here is a great tool to help!
You upload your picture and it gives you a choice of many colors. As you can see I picked the blue. I chose the "split comp" color wheel on the right. It gave me the four colors to work with. I think they go really well with my son's shirt so I would use those for that pic.What if you have two pics you want to scrap with?! No problem. Upload both. You can choose what is the best match for both pics!The colors I chose for these pics go with both pics and are neutral colors. I can tweek it a little so that it will all match!Want a little more freedom?! I have the site for youYou pic the color (the blackish dot) and select which color combo you would like. For this one I wanted something BOLD! I picked the "Triad"If you want to make them lighter, darker, more saturated click on the "Adjust Scheme" tab at the bottom of the page.next Click the "Scheme info" tab and click the HTML+CSS to get the Generated image below.The coolest thing about this generator is it gives you the color codes for PSE and PS CS. You just type in the code on the color picker and VOILA, the color you want!!Now if you want someone else to do the thinking for you (which I do half the time, we have enough to figure out in a day right?! Just figuring out what to make for dinner seems like rocket science some days!!)kuler.adobe.com/This is a fabulous site! I love the color schemes. This one is Celtic. I am Irish (Irish American) and I love everything Celtic, so I chose this as my example :). These are beautiful colors that remind me of a stormy day on the beach. I could make a kit around that.I hope that this has been helpful and you are feeling a little more inspired to experiment with color. It's only scary when you don't know what to do with it right?Thanks for coming to our GGS Blog, we hope you come back soon!! We will have a new blog post every day of the week. Next Thursday I will have another "Techy Thursday Blog". I can't wait to see what I come up with! LOL! ;)Check out our website (store coming soon) www.Girlsgonescrappy.com. We have a Gallery and Forum so please join and start posting!!!Here is your freebie for today. I made a Quick Page from our "Chillaxin" Colab kit. (see links below)

This is Belinda here, proudly announcing the launch of a friend based site meant to take you to scrapping paradise! We are still under a bit of construction but we are glad that you joined us and we can't wait to meet you all!
A few gals that I CT with and for:) have decided to start a blog - Girls Gone Scrappy!!
We love working together and found that we all really wanted to start something fresh. Some of us are designers, some of us are in-training designers and we all have a love of digi-scrapping. Our hope is to have you stop by and join in some of our contests and grab some great freebies!
Please grab this brand new kit - Chillaxin' by Girls Gone Scrappy.
Get Val's papers and elements
Grab Amy's here
Get Megan's here
Grab Belinda's red alpha here and blue alpha here
And as a special treat here is the project for this weeks Manual Monday edition!
Here is a great little card I made using the Chillaxin kit.
I started out with an 8 1/2 x 11 document and then using the ruler I can adjust what papers or elements I want and the exact size. This cuts down on trimming once you start to put it together.
You can always add your own touches with ribbon or buttons but I wanted to keep it simple on this one.
Download the card elements here!
