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!!

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.

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!

Now for the freebie that I promised!

This freebie co-ordinates with the Lucky Charms kit, and these pieces are not included in the kit, but extras that are only available here on my blog. I'd love to see anything you create with them too, so you're more than welcome to send tags or stats my way!

New Store and a Charity Kit

Sorry for the lack of updates lately.

I hadn't posted my new CILM kit previews yet from last month, but I will be doing that tomorrow, along with a freebie that will co-ordinate with one of those kits. Yes, I'm way behind, I've been that way for awhile now, but hoping that things will get back on track really soon. :)

I wanted to share with you today a new store that recently opened, called Creator's Alley.

This is a really cool scrap store, featuring scraps by Barbara Jensen. There's also some really fabulous CU items as well as card templates and even some cross-stitch patterns for those of you who enjoy that outlet.

Yesterday a Charity Collaboration kit was added, in memory of Julie Goodman "Jules" as most of us knew her, she passed away a month ago. She was a very good friend of mine, and was a shining light in the PSP community, always had a kind word for everyone, and always willing to help others when she could. She is definitely missed but will be well remembered and loved by so many of us. This kit was created by members of the Oasis, and all proceeds of the sale of this kit will be donated equally between two organizations in hopes that one day a cure for cancer is found and none of us will have to live with losing loved ones to this dreaded disease.
The Susan G. Komen Foundation and the Voices Against Brain Cancer Foundation.

You can find the Fighting Spirit kit here. It is a tagger sized kit and packed full of goodies.

Happy New Year Freebie and a Sale!!

Happy New Year Everyone!!!

I hope everyone had a fabulous holiday and a safe New Year celebration!

Today I wanted to clear up a misconception people had asked me about "Tagger Size" kits. That doesn't just mean they are smaller in size that full sized ones.. In general, most taggers use art when making their creations. The artists do NOT allow these creations to be printed. So really there is no sense in making a tagger scrap at 300 DPI.

They look absolutely the same on everyone's monitor as the 72 DPI scraps, and it's so much less confusing on the tagger. It is not any more crisp or clear... and all it does is take up more space on your PC. Tagger scraps are not made with the intentions of printing. That's something even many designers don't understand.

OK.. so with that being said and out of the way...

CILM is having a sale with a LOTTO!!!

Items eligible for this sale are 6 and 12-pack custom packs, regular packs, combo packages, individual images/tubes and scrap kits. Please do not order anything that is not on sale (3-Pack Custom Packs or Gift Certificates <-not on sale) with the coupon.

If you do you will short CILM the amount you are supposed to pay and they'll have to manually charge the difference to you. Order 3-Pack Custom Packs and Gift Certificates separately without the coupon.

Every three hours until the sale is done CILM is going to give away 1 free tube pack to one lucky winner that orders at least $15 worth of CILM stuff. So starting at 4pm PST today (January 1st) they give away a tube pack to a lucky winner from 4pm to 7pm... then again 7pm to 10pm... then again 10pm to 1am and so on until the sale is complete. By the end of the sale they'll be handing out over 25 tube packs to 25 lucky winners! Woohooo!

Sale ends on January 4th - 9pm PST

Here's a link to my kits to get you started! And the coupon code is CILM25

What a great bargain! And I also do have combo packs for my scraps where you can buy them all at once for an even bigger bargain!

Now for the freebie... This freebie co-ordinates with my Winter's Whisper kit. These items are not included in the kit, but are extras only available here on my blog.. so be sure to pick them up.. my links don't expire at this time, so if you'd like to share.. please just share my blog link.. I do not allow re-uploading to other sites for my kits.. nor do I allow them to be shared through groups or email.
