Eye Candy on a Wonderful Wednesday

18 Oct

Have you ever had month after busy month of never-ending to-do lists and deadlines and demands-of-life to attend to? If you have, then you probably know exactly how I’m feeling (bedraggled and beat up, lol) and will hopefully forgive me for being woefully lacking in making an appearance here lately.

During times like this, I find that it’s always such a wonderful comfort to sit back and feast my eyes on beauty and awesomeness, so I decided that today’s post will be all about amazing Eye Candy done by some of my most favorite peeps in the entire world (and they’re the some of the best creative artists ever too!)

And because it’s a Wonderful Wednesday today, that also means that I’ve got two products on sale at my shop till midnight Pacific time today (so you’ve got about 14+ hours to grab these in case you don’t have them in your stash yet and you find yourself needing and wanting them. ;)).

Two more hours…

20 Sep

That’s right. Two more hours to take advantage of these Wonderful Wednesday deals! (Yep, am getting right straight to the point to make the most of your time >teehee< 😆 ).

Just a Buck

One-Buck Wednesday brings you this today for… just a buck! (I crack myself up).

{Click on the image above to grab this at my shop for half the price till midnight Pacific time today!}

square one (noun) the situation in which you begin an endeavor and to which you return when all else fails.

My Square One collection contains mini-kits that you will turn to time and time again whenever you need to get your scrapping mojo going. Each set in the collection comes complete with everything you need to create quickly and differently (perfect so you can use and reuse the items, combining them with the rest of your goodies in your digi-stash).

Square 1 No. 1 – Dream Big is the first in this collection, and it’s particularly special because you get an overflowing serving of goodies: there are two 12×12 highly-textured, distressed papers with just a touch of grunge and 13 elements, including crumpled foil stars, stitches, doodled stars, glitter trails, and painted chipboard circle embellies, with and without shadows for your ease of use. Get creative with the tons of variations you can do with the elements! (Hang stars from the stitches, pile up the circle embellies, scatter glitter trails where you wish—the world of creativity is yours to explore!)

To give you an idea of how wonderful and versatile this mini-kit is, here are some awesome layouts by the JessicaSprague.com magical artists:

{Click on any of the two images above to grab these at half-price till midnight Pacific time today!}

This paper pack contains ten deliciously-textured 12×12 solid and patterned papers. Each and every one of them echoes the soft, gentle colors of nature and the quiet comfort of spring awakening. And, take note! Even if they’re spring-inspired, they do a fantabulous job all year round (imagine those whites and blues on winter layouts, or the greens and blues on summer-y layouts… you get my drift ;)).  These should be the perfect complement to your fabulous creations, guaranteed to make your projects shine!

Wonderful Wednesday, It Is!

I think Yoda would agree. 😆

One-Buck Wednesday

If you love the look of textures on your photos, you’ll love playing with my Photo Play Texture Pack, which happens to be on sale for just a buck today (till midnight of Wednesday Pacific time)!

{Click on the image above to grab this texture pack for just a buck!}

Here’s a sample of how these textures can bring that oomph and bang to your photos:

You can combine different textures to get totally different looks each time…

Or you can use one particular texture and play with blending modes, which is what I did here:

Original (Unedited) Photo:

I used Photo Play Texture 6P on the photo and came up with this:

(I used a layer mask and with a low brush opacity, I erased a bit of the texture from the little girl so that the texture was retained but did not overpower the subject).

I used Photo Play Bonus Texture #2 and this is what I came up with:

Here’s the recipe I used above, in case you’re interested (though the textures work differently depending on your images… and that’s a wonderful thing, because it means that you can play and experiment with different textures, different blending modes, different opacities, and the possibilities are just mind-boggling!)

As always, you can click on the images to view them at larger sizes. 🙂

Wonderful (Half-Off) Wednesday

I also have this wonderful element pack at half the regular price today (again, till midnight Pacific time)… and these are perfect not just for taping photos or elements or tags, but also for adding realism and texture to your creations (you can even put text on them!). These are real tapes that I have painstakingly and lovingly extracted for you so that all their rough, torn edges and crumpled areas have been preserved. Yummy, right? 🙂

Love on a Wonderful Wednesday

9 Feb

Whoa, time flies! It’s the middle of the week already (how did we get here so quickly?)… but it’s wonderful because on Wednesdays, certain stuff goes on sale for half the price! 😉

And what’s on sale in my shop today is perfect for this month’s layouts (and throughout the year too!):

My EZ-PZ Template collection is a fully-layered template in .psd format with various pieces that you can use when you create your other projects and layouts too. Because they’re so easy to use, they’re perfect for preserving those precious moments even when you have just a few minutes left at the end of a hugely-hectic day.

You can use the plain template as it is: it comes complete with clipping masks and adjustable shadows. Just add your photos, your own embellishments, your own background paper, and voila! OR if you want to take it further (we’re all about versatility here 😉 ), use the easy-pieces that come with this template pack!

This one is packed with more than the usual goodies that come with the other templates in the collection! (Yup, this is love indeed! 😉 ). It comes with one large grungy photo mask, one painted grungy photo mat, one torn-paper photo mask, one brown-bag paper, labeled and plain grosgrain ribbons, horizontal and vertical stitches in plain and pre-shadowed versions, one highly-textured 12×12 background paper, optional text paths for journaling and title, and a really cool grungy love sticker in plain, pre-shadowed and lifted (Curled) versions. Phew! That’s a whole load of product there! 🙂

And it’s at half-price this Wednesday till midnight Pacific time! (Click on the image above to grab it from my shop if you want to include it in your stash).

Oh, let’s not forget the delicious eye-candy created by these awesome creative ladies! (They do a terrific job of showing the many different ways you can use the template!)

Here’s a layout by Miki:

Miki’s layout also uses my I Heart Doodles Rub-Ons & Brush Set and my Needs+Wants: Eyelets Galore Vol.1.

Here’s another layout by Jenn M (who changed the orientation of the photo mask to fit her portrait-photo):

Here’s a layout that uses the template in a pretty straightforward way (I’m sneaking this one in, it’s by me, heehee):

Here’s a layout by Meg:

And this one was created by Jana, who did some recoloring to bring out the soft peachy skin of her adorable grandson:

And yes, it totally works for hybrid projects too! Here’s proof, a wonderful hybrid layout done by Camille:

And that’s it for this Wonderful Wednesday, my dear friends! May yours be filled with love!

No Strings Attached

1 Feb

It’s a Wonderful Wednesday, and there are absolutely no strings attached to its being wonderful!

Speaking of strings… here’s what I have at 50%-off today in my shop:

Have I told you about my Needs+Wants collection? In this collection, you’ll find all the essential digital schtuff you need and want to create your lovely masterpieces. Think of how delightful it would be to have all your basic needs, all the essential supplies that you find yourself reaching for again and again, all in a single collection! No more searching through different kits for that perfect item you know you want to use. Awesome, right?

That’s the inspiration behind my Needs + Wants collection, and  Strings Galore Vol. 1 belongs right in there!  In this pack, you’ll get 54 extra-large strings (super-easy to resize if you need smaller versions), in basic colors and in simple, pre-shadowed, and lifted versions. So versatile, you’ll use them again and again for stringing stuff, for your clusters, for leading the eye to your focal point… really, for just about anything! They’re super-fun to play with, so if you don’t have these yet in your stash of goodies, today’s the best day to get them, while they’re at half-price!

Just click on the image above to grab them from my shop. 😉

Oh, and let’s not forget the eye candy, so magnificently provided by my dear friends (and members of the awesome JessicaSprague.com Creative Team), Jana and Miki!

Yummy layouts, right?

And those stringy babies are yours for the taking at 50% off this Wednesday only, till midnight Pacific time!
