Playful Alpha and a new Mega-Doodle Inspired product!

Mega-Doodle Inspired has a fun new action out to create transparent stickers! You have the option of flat, puffy or super-puffy - and the effect is adjustable so that you can tailor it to your element. There are actions for PS and PSE. You can see them HERE.

I had fun testing this one - I can tell I'm going to be using it a lot! For now, I've made a puffy sticker alpha to match the rest of the Playful collection. And yes, there are more pieces to this collection in the works. I've been quite busy settling into the homeschool routine, but it should start to even out now.

Playful Collection - Chalkboard

When I first got this last testing assignment from Mega-Doodle Inspired, I thought, "Oh, goody, football". Not that I couldn't test it anyway, but I have two young girls that are into princesses, not sports. Not even my husband is particularly into sports. Once I started playing with the brushes that she includes, I fell in love!!!!! There's a brush that makes it look like you are writing with chalk - especially on her chalkboard paper! Too much fun!

The Football Plays Assembly Kit and the Footbal Word Art & Brushes will be available exclusively at Commercial Create in a Huge Collaboration Grab Bag from 21 Sept - 05 Oct and then will be available separately in her stores after that.

So, to show you just how versatile this can be, my kit has absolutely nothing to do with football. I was inspired by some (old-2004!) pictures of my daughters playing with sidewalk chalk on the driveway and created papers and elements to match.

Included in this kit are two doodled chalk papers, seven "construction paper" solids, a doodled frame in three colors and word art in two colors. The color scheme is the same as the previous paper pack so these will coordinate.

An oops!

I just noticed that I forgot to rename my papers in the last freebie. That's what happens when I try to do too many things at once! The link below has been updated with the new file. The papers are the same - they are just named correctly now!

Check back on Sunday for a new freebie - I had so much fun with this one!

Exciting News and a Freebie!

I'm an official product tester for Mega-Doodle Inspired! I've always loved her products and I'm especially thrilled because Brandy is one of the few that makes actions for PSE. Her latest product has just been released - Mega-Pattern Set 01. She has all the bases covered here - versions with pattern sets for PS, PSE and PSP and even a set of overlays if you can't use pattern sets. She also includes awesome tutorials for PS and PSE if you don't know how to work with pattern sets. You have to check these out!

I made a paper pack for you using some of the patterns in the set. As you can see, you can even layer the patterns to get more options. The color scheme is one I will be using frequently when I create paper and element sets, so you will eventually have a mega-kit!

Cornucopia of Colors Add-On

I finally got a chance to finish up the word art I was working on to go with Cornucopia of Colors. I was almost done yesterday but then we had some severe thunderstorms and I didn't want to be on my computer.

If you haven't downloaded the papers and elements yet, just scroll down a bit. Don't forget to stop by all the blogs to get more parts to this beautiful kit!

I do have another kit in the works for you, but it will be a few days since we started school last Thursday and we're still getting back into the routine. The first week is always the hardest!

Cornucopia of Color

It's that time again! The ADS Designers have put together yet another fabulous collab. The theme this month is Cornucopia of Color so you will have plenty to choose from for all of your fall pictures! The links will be up for at least 30 days, so there's no rush if 4shared isn't behaving today. Please be patient if the links aren't up right away as there are designers from all over the world in many different time zones.

Here's my part - there are separate downloads for the papers and elements. Once you're done, hop on over to the next blog for another piece! Be sure to check back later because I have some coordinating word art in the works. I had hoped to have it finished for today, but we had family visiting.

A closer look at the patterned papers...
