Like those cute little emoji pins?  Did you know you can make your own digital enamel pins using my Enamel Pin Builder?  We even have monthly challenge where we share the pins we create! 😀  Be sure to go check it out. <3



style requestsNSD is on its way and with it I want to do another Style Request Bundle!  These are by far my most favorite styles to create.  If you are new – this is how it goes.  I go through all the requests – the ones that I pick receive the full bundle free!  You can suggest as many as you’d like.  If I take two suggestions from one person I will also give the bundle to the second person who suggested it (if it is a duplicate).  It helps if you also link me to an image of the “effect” so I have a clear idea of what you’d like me to create. <3

So, now that I’ve got your attention (muahahahaha) be sure to go check out some of my latest styles so you know what I already have in the shop.

Here are some of my favorites from this year so far!

As always – I can not wait to see what you guys suggest!  I have a feeling this is going to be the best bundle yet! <3



One of the many reasons I feel so passionately about layer styles in photoshop (if someone outside of our little scrap geek world reads this they will probably think I’ve lost my mind) is the ability to absolutely transform an element into something completely new!  It is SO insanely fun to do and can be SO SO easy.  Below is an example of this:


The top of the original word art – it is a digital stamp.

Wood Veneer –

  • For the wood veneer I simply took the word art – added a stroke around.
  • Then applied a wood veneer style to it.
  • I duplicated the original word art and applied one of the “burn” effects to it and gained this fun new element!

Watercolor Sticker –

  • For the sticker I took the word art – used my paint brush to make a multi-color fill
  • Then applied a watercolor style to the word art layer.
  • I then added a stroke to it and then applied an art canvas style to that!

Sound confusing? It really isn’t and if you watch the video below you can see me do it in real time!

The code to pick up the Watercolor Style is: expand-water

The code to pick up the Wood Veneer Style is: expand-veneer

These codes expire 9/30/16.

If you haven’t had a chance to check out my challenge at TLP be sure to go participate and pick up the free styles that are part of the challenge!
