Online Somewhere

Hi, I just wanted to let you all know I added a few more layouts to my gallery over there --> they are at the end. You may have actually seen them before, but I am trying to organize all my artwork. I realized last night as I was falling asleep that I have this one layout in particular that I know I finished but don't remember seeing it in my gallery... part of being "finished" in my mind is uploading it somewhere. The other issue I am realizing is that I upload my layouts to too many places! I would really like to have them all in one place, so if God forbid, something happened to my albums I would still have a digital version online somewhere. The problem is that online somewhere is all over the place! So, I am taking advantage of this rainy day to organize all of online somewhere! So, my question is where do you upload/frequent/comment on others' layouts?

Inspiration in the oddest places

So, oddly enough I saw this page on the front page of a JoAnn's flyer and though I liked the lines, but it is definitely not my colors! So, I tore out the image and stashed it in my sketch binder, until I came across these pics of my friends and I eating some chocolate cake batter! I am so glad I held onto this! I really liked the way mine turned out!

12 cents prints!

Just a heads up that has 12 cent prints through June 18th! And metallic prints at regular prices from June 19th - 30th! If you haven't created an account there, you should! They have the best prints, the best color, unlimited storage space, no fees to sign up or maintain, and super cheap prints and shipping. Only $2.00 shipping, no matter how many prints your order or what size they are! On my last order, I noted that the colors were a bit off and asked them to correct it how they saw fit...needless to say the prints came out beautiful and they didn't charge me any extra! Plus the customer service is awesome, a super nice Dad & Son team! I love supporting the small fish! I am off to go order another hundred prints or so! ;o)

Coloring Chipboard

So, I was just reading another blog that I frequent and she said the most time consuming part of her layout was cutting the cardstock to cover her chipboard letters for the title. So, I wanted to share a little tip for those that have not tried it. Save yourself some time and just take your chipboard letters and rub them around on the face of your stamp pads. So much quicker than cutting cardstock and gives a much more vivid color. Also, if you don't like colored fingers you may want to wear gloves, but I wear my colored fingertips as a badge of creativity ;o) Also a great way to "own" more, if you don't have cranberry cardstock (but do have the ink pad) and wanted your accents to be cranberry on your layout, you can use your ink pad to color your chipboard letters and embellishments. Voila!
