Web & Print Actions & Cluster Freebie

Hey Everyone

Did you ever wonder how I get my gallery layouts to look so sharp and full of color? Well, I use an action created by one of my designers - By Becca. All of us on the CT use it and people started noticing how wonderful it is. So the sweetheart went ahead and packaged it up along with a save for print action and is offering it in her shop! I use the save for print on all my layouts before I upload them to a printer - they all come out beautiful!

Let me tell you - this is the BEST $2.59 that you will ever spend on scrapping tools!!!!

In Raspberry Road news, this wonderful, appetite inspiring kit - Autumn Apples - was released a few weeks ago, and I just had to play! Here's a layout I did of my grandchildren!

Here's a little sumthin' for ya made from a recent layout I did! Cluster created with By Becca's newest kit, Hearthsong available at 9th & Bloom. And the image is sharpened with her new Action!

Hey Everyone! Long time no see! I'm finally back from a long summer and some family stuff and a super long wonderful vacation with my granddaughter. I made a layout this week with Susan's recent Autumn Splendor Collection. It's gorgeous and just wonderful colors!

This is my friend Sheila and her hubby Chris when they got married in Vegas! Imaged is linked for credit and leaving love!

MouseScrappers Blog Train and Freebie

Happy Birthday MouseScrappers!

And for all of you who don't know what MouseScrappers is - combine a large group of Disney nuts with photos and a whole lot of Scrapbooking and you get - MouseScrappers! Galleries and forums full of Disney fun, photos, news and scrapbook pages! Heaven on earth for those of us with both addictions!

It's been a month of chats, learning, speed scrapping, scavenger hunts, hide and go seek, cake smashing, hopscotch, cake baking, simon says, all things disney, prizes, and hopefully lots of fun and friendship too. To cap off our 4 week 2nd Birthday celebration MouseScrappers has put together a blog hop full of celebration items in classic fab 5 colors.

In celebration of this fun event and our wonderful Disney Scrapping home, here is a little goodie from me to you. You may have arrived here from Roxana's blog. The next stop on the train is Lisa Campbell Designs. If you are so tired from all of this partying that you lose your way you can always check out the MouseScrappers 2nd Anniversary Activity forum to get the complete list.

People from all over the world and in different time zones have contributed to this blog hop so if you don't see their blog train freebie right away, check back later!

Please note this file is zipped in WinRAR. I don't have WinZIP, so sorry, can't provide that for you. You can get WinRAR for free on the Internet. I have included individual .png files for all of you who can't use the .psd file. Please remember that sharing files - even if it is just to have someone unzip a file or convert a file - is against the TOU.

Many thanks to This Dixie Pixie (Donna) who is hosting a scraplift challenge on the site. I lifted her layout to create this one (ahhhh had to get those Britt-ish Designs Grungy Mickey Stamps!) and she graciously agreed to let me make it into this template. Enjoy!

Freebie QP and CT Call!!!

I've got a great freebie for ya later, but first, I need to tell you about a great CT call! It's my favorite designer, By Becca! She hasn't had a CT Call since last year and she needs to add just a few to her team right now. It's really a great team to be on, hope you will apply!
Next up, I just made this page with one of Susan's newest kits, Painted Splendor! Check it out in the Raspberry Road shop! This page is of my grandmother, you can click the image for credits and leaving love!

And I know I usually make cluster for you, but this time, I tried a few things out and it just seemed like the paper and the whole cluster just made the layout. So I decided to offer up a quick page this time. I recommend a black and white photo, probably a headshot or something relatively close up. And as you can see, I blended the repeat photo over on the side. Take a trip to 4shared to pick it up. It's a big file so be prepared for the long download.

Blog Train and Freebie Cluster

Welcome to the next stop on the Blog Train for By Becca's release of Ashton's Romance! I'm gonna show you all the wonderfulness of this kit and add-ons and personal color options, so watch for links and such all the way through that will take you to her shop at 9th & Bloom!

Becca is releasing this wonderful new kit that is perfect for weddings, anniversaries, anything to do with love and other precious pages! Ashton's Romance comes in a beautiful shade of royal blue.

And my layout with the kit - this is my mom and dad - April 12, 1947.

And look! She is releasing add-ons in different colors! Buy Ashton's Romance, put one of the add-ons in the cart for the same purchase, and you will get it at half price! I love Amethyst Romance!

And my layout with the add-on, combined with elements from Ashton's Romance. This is my lovely grand daughter, Nicole. See how perfect this kit is for everyday layouts?

Another color I really loved is Champagne Romance.

For this one I did a layout of Mom and Dad fifty years later - an anniversary layout! It's not just for weddings ya know!!!! Love the metal alpha that comes with Ashton's Romance!

Becca is also offering up Rose Romance so be sure to check it out in the shop!

And!!!! There's more!!!! You can order your very own, custom colored kit in YOUR wedding colors! Yes you can! Check out the custom color option in the store! If you want your own color, buy this option instead of Ashton's Romance! It costs a little more, but wow! You get it in the perfect colors to match your wedding!

Now, who is Ashton, you may wonder? Why she's Amanda's sister! And who is Amanda? None other than Photocowgirl, who has created these coordinating templates, Layers of Happiness. Check them out at GingerScraps!

OK, are ya still with me? On to the Blog Train and the Cluster Freebie. You may have arrived here from Jenn's blog and after you grab my cluster, you are going to go on to Holly's Blog. You can also go start at the beginning, which is Becca's blog. She will have a list of the other stops in case there is a break in the line.

Keep in mind, we are all in different time zones, so everyone's post may not show up at the same time. We are aiming to be live with everyone by 9am EST, so hopefully we make it. Have fun and be sure to leave the girls some love when you grab their gifties! And be sure to get the kit while it's on sale this weekend!
