Buds to Blooms Facebook Hop

As we continue our 5-Year Anniversary Celebrations at Digital Scrapbooking Studio, we are thanking YOU our loyal FANS and CUSTOMERS with a Facebook hop! There are 20+ stops on this hop, all with goodies for you.
To get started at the very beginning of the Hop, go to theStudio’s Facebook page and click on the Buds to Blooms Tab.  You will be able to download Toiny’s contribution there, as well as see the link to your next stop.
If you want to go directly to my Facebook page, you may do so by clicking HERE.
On my Facebook page, you will also find links to the next stop as well… you will just be starting in the middle of the Hop instead of at the very beginning.  But if you continue on,  you will eventually reach all 20 stops!
Here is a preview of my contribution of Buds to Blooms!

Creating a Custom Color Palette in Photoshop

Choosing the “right” kit to scrap a particular photograph can sometimes be a challenge.  The theme of the kit might be perfect for you, but the colors of the kit might not be what you need.  There’s an easy way to fix that! Create a custom color palette from your photograph, and recolor the kit elements as needed.  READ THE REST of this tutorial on theStudio’s blog.

Vintage Buttons are here!

I love buttons!  It’s not surprising since my mother taught me to sew at age 9, and sewing has been part of my life since that time.  I always include buttons in my scrapbook kits and sometimes have to stop myself from adding too many!  In scrapbooking, I use buttons in a number of different ways.  I like to use them to anchor photos to my background papers or to anchor several papers together. They make a cute addition to the corner of a photo frame, or in place of the letter “O” in a page title.  Buttons can be tucked into clusters to add color or interest, or used to tack down ribbons or ricrac.  There are just sooo many things you can do with buttons!

I became even more obsessed with buttons this last week, and started extracting some of my favorites to use in upcoming scrapbook kits.  I have 2 packages of Vintage Buttons in my stores now, and will have more coming.  Although these buttons are “CU friendly,” they are perfect for the personal scrapper too!
