Working on a new kit - quick page freebie

I'm working on a new kit, inspired by the October colour challenge at Divine Digital's forum. The challenge is layouts only, so I used some of what I have created thus far to do a layout. I also made the layout into a quick page freebie for you.

November 2010 Desktop Calendar

Time to post the November 2010 desktop calendar freebie. I used Rieka Rafita's Love of Autumn, currently on sale for only $1.

Personal use only, please.

October 2010 DSO colour challenge

DSO colour challenge time again. Got this one down to 6 zips - lol - not quite a mini, but smaller than I usually end up with.
Tea Party in the Playroom takes me back to the days when I was very young & loved to play tea party.
Please leave a comment either with the post or in the chat box if you download?

tags with The Wings of Spring

I bought Crazed Creations' Wings of Spring many months ago & finally got around to working with it -lol. Currently the kit is on sale for a low price at Scraps With Attitude.

This kit was very enjoyable to work with. And the posers from Luscious Scraps are so cute!

some new tags - Total Eclipse

I'm having trouble with my wrist & typing hurts, so for the next little while I'm going to be posting tags without accompanying tuts.
Nette's Night Owl Works has all her kits at The Creativity Box. I was drawn to her kit Total Eclipse because of the colour scheme. I love that particular shade of blue.

These were both simple tags to make, basic Copy & Paste, although I did play with the opacity of the tree in the Dream of Me tag & applied a style to the name to make it show up on the candle.
Any questions can be left as comments or in my chat box.

Victoria's Musings

Scrappin With Lil Ole Me has a really great sale on right now. I put her Victoria's Musings tag kit to very productive use. Created at 300 dpi, it works as well for layouts as for tags. Right now it's on sale for 75% off, $0.75!!
I made 2 layouts, then turned the layouts into a set of quick pages for you.

I also made 2 tags. The kit comes with 4 lovely posers from Wyked Soulz but I used a poser from Medievil Creations for one tag and a poser from Dark Moon's Dreams for the other.

Personally, I like to use Adobe Photoshop Creative Suite 4 to make my tags. I like using the bevel & emboss effect to make elements stand out. I'm not tuting these tags, but it's really simple - choose the elements you want to use, then copy, paste, resize & arrange to fit your
vision. Apply effects like bevel & emboss if desired. Experiment, play, have fun. Keep your layers palette visible & you can turn any given element's visibility on or off to deside if it looks right.
