Funky Black Papers

Jody had a good point on the post yesterday this is now I used the actions to make the frames - you can do this with other actions as well to make frames - Doing it this way comes in handy when you don't want to run the action for multiple pictures.Once the frame is made you can use it over and over.
 I didn't use a frame action..they are the spiral bound and photo album actions and I made a black square to use as the picture to load when asked for it. Then after the action made the page with the black center, I just erased it with the magic eraser in Photoshop. Here is the link for the actions..there are seven actions in this one download.

Funky Black Papers - playing with some neon styles.

Found this Watch Action and made some frames for you guys... made a couple of words to match them too.
Link to for Watch Action
Someone left a comment with this site as a source for making some fun special effects from their actions.

More plastic brads... yes, I am giving you up and down arrows...yes, I know that you could have just turned them, but then the highlights on the arrows wouldn't have been right. : )

Polka Dot Papers

I think that these are my favorites. They are CRAZY! and then I made some overlays to play with and then I made some black and white ones for you to colorize yourself...but there are more colors coming for the next two days and then I have some more fun stuff.

Stacked Photo Frames

Yes, Gramma D - me too.....coooooffeeeeee.... but it's taking me a while to get that kit done. This and some polka dot papers and some gems will hopefully tide you guys over while you wait. These stacked photos are fun and the big overlay may be useful to some also!

I also promised someone some gymnastics stuff...didn't forget!

Hearts Papers

I'm thinking that maybe you guys have enough heart papers. This is the last one for a while.
I was working on some gems, bottle caps, coffee kit and more yesterday. The coffee kit is going to take me a little while. It's about half done, but I keep working on other stuff at the same time.

Candy Heart to Colorize and Pastel Candy Hearts

I made the pastel candy hearts below, but then thought that maybe some of you would like to have one to colorize to any  color you like. The top download has a white heart that you can put any color overlay in PSE or PS and then cut back the opacity to create any variation of the hue.

Candy Hearts Papers & Red Candy Hearts

Here are some Valentine's Candy papers and just a few red hearts...I made these red hearts before I knew how to use Photoshop so they are a little crude. I never did finish the whole alphabet and I'm not sure I could find the file now to do it!

Had fun with my great niece and nephew yesterday doing Valentine projects! Fun, Fun, Fun! Here are some things we made!
This one lost an eyeball (laying on the table)!

 too cute!

Polaroid Frames and Action

I used made and used these for a QP that I will be posting soon and I thought that some of you  might like them for frames for any kit!
They are made with a PS action that I downloaded free at this site. If you have PS you can curl any photo! Here is the link if you want to play with it.The action lets you curl any corner! 
I just used the flat polaroid and put the photo behind it.
Save that image as a png.
Open png.
Pick a corner on the action.
Run action and there you go!

Gramma D - I have spring fever....getting a emails and they are making me miss baseball season!

This was requested and I'm thinking that there might be a few of you that would like this. I think the iPhone has been downloaded over 800 times!

Spring Flowers QP and BB

I've been working on some popups and thought I would share this site that has easy, intermediate and hard popup card instructions. Very well done and easy to follow - since I am so slow at getting a tutorial done!

...and here are today's downloads

Spring Flowers

For us "Northerners" - A hint of Spring
Someone requested more flowers. There will be today and tomorrow for the flowers and then I have some Candy Hearts that I can post. But... don't forget to go and get my Be My Valentine and Love Letters Kits if you missed them! Valentine's Day is approaching here in the United States.
I'm working on some sample Valentine's Day cards for our Family Fun Night at our community center. I did get a request asking how to make the pop up cards that I have shown you in the past and I am working on a tutorial. Wish that everyone could come to our Community Center here and we could have a card making extravaganza!
