Tutorial: 4 Ways to use Overlays and Textures Creatively using Blend Modes

Last week I was asked by someone new to digital scrapbooking if she, as a personal-use scrapbooker, was allowed to purchase commercial-use products.  The answer is a resounding YES!  Commercial-Use (CU) products are very often created with both the designer and the personal-use scrapper in mind.

Vintage Valentine

My brother-in-law collected postcards when he was younger. I have 3 albums of his that are full of the most colorful and intricately designed postcards, dating back to the very early 1900′s.  Did you know that for a time postcards were designed in leather too?

I’ve prepared a set of Vintage Valentine’s Day cards for you, as well as some Vintage Valentine Stamps, created from those cards.  The Stamps come in both PNG and ABR formats.  If you are wondering why  you would want both formats, you might find my tutorial on “PNG vs ABR files – Which should you use?” helpful.

Vintage Valentine Cards and Vintage Valentine Stamps can be found at

New Designer Mix Baking Elements

Are you a designer looks for some authentic vintage baking-related elements for your kits?  Or perhaps you are a personal scrapbooker who would like to add some of these types of elements to your personal stash?

I inherited many of my mother-in-laws kitchen utensils, many dating back to the 1940′s-1950′s.  Those, along with some items that belongs to my own mother comprise my new Designer Mix – Baking packs!
