This first one is using Vicki's "Primary Grunge" kit which she is offering free on her blog.

This next one that I have done and I think you'll is using Vicki's "True Blue" kit and Sara's "True Blue" add-on. Sorry but I just can't stop using "True Blue".

And finally for this layout I have used Sara's "Love Me Forever" kit.

For all of my layouts I have used templates by
M originals.


True blue add-on oops

Hi again I forgot to add my felt star boarder to the true blue add-on.
Thank you to Theresa for pointing it out and thank you for all your lovely comments they are so appreciated.
So here it is sorry.

You probably all know by now as I'm a bit late posting this, but Vicki is now selling her kits at eidou.com. Her first kit that she is selling is called "Winter Wonderland" and here is the preview.
It's such a beautifull kit and it's on sale for $4 click the preview and it will take to Vicki's store. I am so lucky to have had chance to play with this it before it went on sale.
Here is my layout That I have done using Vicki's "Winter Wonderland" kit.

I have also used template#31 "snow fun" by Liz Designs. I have got a thing for templates at the moment I just love them.


It's so good to be back!

I am so relieved to finally have the Internet back. I have been with out it ALL weekend and it finally came back today. I didn't know what to do with myself. Saturday I was checking it every five minutes to see if it had come back. Sometimes the Internet is a bit temperamental any way, but I couldn't believe it when it still wasn't working on Sunday. What was I going to do.
My oldest son wasn't very well so he kept me busy and that kept my mind off it.
Don't you just feel so cut off from the world what would we do with out, especially here in scrap land.
I know have some catching up to do. So I will be back later with some CT layouts and other layouts I have done.


True Blue add-on

Friday, 28 November 2008

Vicki kindly let me do an add-on for this kit and here it is.
Thank you Vicki
Click the image to download.
I so love these colours. Here is my layout I did with my add-on.

The colours just go so perfectly with the boys shirts.
This next one is a mix of Vicki's and my add-on.

If you haven't already be sure to check Vicki's blog for the "True Blue" kit and Sara's blog for her add-on to the kit as well.

Love Kim x


Tuesday, 25 November 2008

Eila has pointed out something I was not aware of about 4shared, thank you for pointing it out. I wasn't complaining about lack of comments left for me, I was just generally commenting as what I see as a freebie hunter. Several of the freebies that I left comments for I left comments on their blogs as well and there was only a few other people that left comments on their blogs. there just seems that since 4shared has changed people just don't seem to bother leaving comments at all.
Thank you to all those who have left me love I really appreciate it.
If you don't wish to register with 4shared you an always leave some love anonymously on digi designers blogs or suggest a way that you would prefer.


A little rant about comments on 4shared

While downloading some freebies I noticed the lack of comments on 4shared. Are people put off by now having to log in to leave a comment? It doesn't take long to log in and leave some love. I think I can say for every one that we appreciate ALL the comments you leave even if it just a thank you. So take a little time to leave some love if you download a freebie.


True Blue I so love it!

Monday, 24 November 2008

Vicki kindly asked us what colours we would like a kit in and I chose monotone blues as I had photos that had a lot of blue in them and having boys blue is always a great colour to have a kit in. This is what Vicki came up with and I absolutely love it.
This is the layout I have done with it and I plan to do a few more with it.

This kit just goes so beautifully with this photo.
Thank you so much Vicki.
She has kindly let me do an add-on to this kit which I will be posting on Friday.
Click on the preview to go to Vicki's blog if you haven't just come from there.

Vicki's latest kit

Monday, 17 November 2008

Here is my layout using Vicki's latest kit "Candy Dream" she has made for Mel.

I have used a template by Moriginals.

Click on the preview to go to Vicki's blog to download the first part.

Also Sara of Sweet Blossom Designs (also on Vicki's CT) has a new kit "Surf's Up".

Hope you have had a good weekend.

I Guess This Is My First Tutorial

Friday, 10 October 2008

This little tutorial is for Jess she wanted to know how I put the photo on the background.
I use Photoshop Elements 4 for my layouts.
First you take a paper of your choice and drag it into your new blank file. I used one from Vicki's "Breakfast At Tiffany's".
You can do it with out a background behind the photo, but I prefer the effect it gives.
Then you find the photo you want to use on the background and drag it onto the paper(making sure it's on a new layer.

Next you resize (making sure you maintain aspect ratio) it so it covers the whole of the paper and position it so you've got the main subject where you want them. I position mine just slightly of center and make sure I have room for the embellishments and title.

Now change the opacity of the photo (so it blends in with the background paper) until you are happy with the effect. I changed my opacity to 60%.

If you are completely happy with the position and opacity of the photo I sometimes fine it easier to merge your layers at this point.
Finish off by adding your embellishments, title etc.
I have also done this with another layout if you scroll done to labels on the left hand side and click on layouts and scroll down til you see the layout.
