Do you want to create layouts that look so realistic its as if you could reach out and touch them? The secret is in the shadows! I’ve created a set of 6 custom shadow styles that will give realistic drop shadows to almost any element.
These styles and actions were created in Photoshop CS4 and tested in CS2, 3, and 4.
This package is on sale for 20% off this week only!

A unique package of 6 templates in PSD format for your scrapping inspiration. I belong to many creative teams and love to make unique layouts for new products. These are a few of my favorite layouts that I have made, mostly for creative teams, bundled up into a package of inspiration for you! Each template is provided for you in multi-layered PSD format.
Rainbows and Unicorns Alpha by- WyldWeb Designs
This hand doodled alpha will add a unique touch to your layout. Drawn and colored on paper then carefully extracted, this one of a kind alpha reminds me of the doodles I used to make on my binders in high school.
On Sale all week for 20% off, but look for special iNSD pricing starting Friday, April 30th!
Jen also has a new kit out this week, a collab with Geek Chic Scraps, called When the Wind Blows:
Here is the layout I made with it:
Click image for full credits. I also used my Fabulous Shadows Made Easy styles and actions on this layout!
I have something new out this week, a couple of design tools.
This Photoshop action will help you trim the file sizes of your designs with the click of a button! Removing the empty space around your design elements will greatly reduce your file sizes which allows you to package your kits in less download folders and save time! This action removes all empty space around your flattened PNG image and leaves a 1 pixel border surrounding it to avoid any clipping of your item. This action has been tested in PSE, PS CS2, 3 and 4.
This Photoshop action will resize your images to 600×600 pixels and make them sharp and web-ready. Whether you are uploading kit previews or your own personal layouts, this action will save you time by automatically resizing to the standard size and then sharpening your image to make it pop online! This action has been tested in PSE, PS CS2, 3 and 4.
Both actions are on sale for 25% off this week only!
Jen of Graham Like the Cracker also has a gorgeous kit out this week:
Quentin & Emma
Jen designed this one from the heart; she was inspired by the birth of my youngest son, Quentin, and another Gingersnap member, Marie, who had her daughter Emma just one day apart from us.
A kit that is both formal and cute, this newborn baby kit will scrap endless layouts. Made for boys and girls, this kit contains 40 elements and 20 papers. The kit is $6.00
No kit of Jen’s is complete without some gradient papers, and this time she made a paper pack.
These papers aren’t just for babies… these highly textured (but still soft) papers will look great in any layout. Mix them, match them, their possibilities are endless.
Of course they look their best with The kit Quentin and Emma, but you will love them in any layout you use them in. The gradient paper pack is $3.00
Every kit needs and alpha!
This adorable alpha can be used in a wide variety of layouts. Multi-layered and striped, it will be a fantastic addition to any layout.
This alpha comes in blue striped and pink striped in lower and upper case letters. Full alpha sheets and individually cut letters are included to suit your scrapping fancy. The alpha pack is $3.
The bundle contain the kit, the alpha, and the gorgeous gradient papers that complete the Quentin and Emma Collection. The Bundle is $9.00
Make sure you check out Jen’s blog for the coordinating freebie and to see the rest of the gorgeous CT layouts!
Here is my layout with this wonderful kit:
Go check it out!
Yep, I’m back. I came out of “retirement”. I didn’t last long did I???? I guess I should have realized that it was my difficult pregnancy squashing my love for designing and just “hung in there”! But that’s ok, I am retiring most of my old products anyways…. and I am going to be putting a few different things in my store from now on, starting with this week!
My first new products are actually both tools for designers. First, “Design Tools: Smoothing Action” is a Photoshop action that eliminates those pesky jagged edges with the simple click of a button!
As you can see in the examples, those extra little bits left when we extract items as well as any stray pixels will be removed in just one click! This action is 25% off this week only!
Next, I have my first doodle pack in the store, “Doodle-rama: Animals”
This designer resource contains 7 animal doodles in PNG and PSD format. These doodles are permitted for commercial, personal or scrap-for-hire use and are easily colored and customized to fit your needs. 25% off for this week!
And finally, I have put my Sunset on the Beach kit and matching glitter back in the store!
You can pick it up for 25% off this week only!
Ok, I can’t let you go without a freebie to celebrate my return, here is a colored example plus my turtle doodle from the “Doodle-rama: Animals” pack!
