I'm back......

Over a year and a half it seems since I've been MIA from PSP, tags, stats, scraps.. you name it, I was gone. I had a few things take over my life, not all good, but obviously not all bad. For what it's worth, I have missed quite a few of my graphics friends that I made along the way, and I am sorry for that. I know I can't make things up for what seemed like abandoning you, I can only apologize and go on from there. Either it will be accepted... or not. Most specifically... Bobbie, Claire and Mieneke. I've missed you all tons.

A lot of things have changed in my life over the past couple of years. I'm now separated, with a pending divorce (which is a GOOD thing). My son and I have moved to Phoenix AZ... which is also completely awesome. I really do love it here and am really happy here. :)

I'm working full time so don't have near the time for the PC as I did before, but I will still make a concentrated effort to make reasonable updates. I haven't decided if I'm getting back into creating scraps or not. The last experience wasn't the best, although it was fun.... I just don't see it being worth the time and effort, but who knows... like I said, I haven't decided yet. I do know that my blog needs a makeover in a bad way. I'll be going through checking blinkies, links, etc... I won't delete any of my old freebies, in fact, I have no idea if the links still work even. If they don't... sorry.

PSP went out the window a long time back, to be replaced by Photoshop. I hadn't made a tag in years, and don't plan to, or stats either. I don't use I-Mail anymore as it wasn't compatible with this laptop, and was just taking up a lot of space and memory that's better served elsewhere.

Guess that's about all for now, it's late, and morning comes early..

New Tutorial with my Scraps & A Contest

Hi again!

Just wanted to add that Hele has done another fabulous tut with one of my scrapkits. I'm a bit late adding it to my blog, but I'm slowing catching up with things :)

Here's what the finished tut looks like, and you can find the English version of it on her website here: Beautiful Girl

And now I've decided to have a contest!! I need some more scrapping inspiration, so here's the deal. Anyone may enter my contest, and here's what you need to do. Pick out a color palette that you would like me to use for a kit, and also pick out a name for the finished kit. The palette needs to have between 2-5 colors. Your entry can be emailed to me HERE

DEADLINE for this will be June 15th at 11:59 PM Central Time.

What can you win? Well if I pick your palette and kit name, you will not only win the kit for free, but you will also win a $10 GC for CILM

Each person may enter up to 2 (two) times.

Thanks and hope everyone has a great rest of the week!!

hugs, Julie ♥

New Kits - Special Sale and a FREEBIE

Hello again!!

Well it's that time of the month again where I have new kits released from CILM!! Below is a preview of the three of them.

I really had a lot of fun with these. If there's something any of you would like to see me do, or certain color combinations, just leave me a comment or drop me an email - as I'm always looking for new ideas.

With these new kits, there is also a special deal on them right now at CILM. If you purchase all three, for the first so many people, you can get them at over 35% off. If that sounds like a great deal to you, just click below the preview to be taken to the special combo. But hurry! After the special combo is sold out, they go back to the regular combo pricing - which is also at a nice discount if you want to purchase more than one kit.

Special Combo Pricing

Now for the freebie :) This Add-on coordinates with my Shanghai Surprise kit and includes 5 papers and 3 butterflies. The butterflies are very similar to the ones in the kit, but they have no transparency like the ones in the kit.

New Tutorial

Hello again! I just wanted to stop in and let you know I've found this fabulous tutorial writer. Her name is Isharimal/Hele and I loved her tuts so much I've asked her to create some with my kits, and she gladly has accepted. You can find her blinkie over on the side bar.

Her first tut with my kits was using my After the Rain kit, and also used the fabulous art of Suzanne Woolcott.

If you click the tag, it will take you to her tutorial.

I'm really looking forward to seeing what she comes up with next!!

NEW Kits - FREEBIE and a Sale

Woo Hoo!!

My newest kits that were released last month, sorry I never got them posted, I was attempting to make sure I got all the blogtrains listed, and then forgot.. whoops. Anyway, I had 3 new kits come out in March at CILM The previews are below.

I had such a ball making the Easter kit. The clip art was fun, and it is hand drawn by myself, so it's completely useable with whatever project you might be working on.

:::EDITED OUT SALE info because sale is over:::

Ok! so now, on to the freebie, and thank you for reading if you've come this far!!

This freebie co-ordinated with my Spring Fever kit, and includes 3 papers and 3 frames. Enjoy!
