UPDATE // ETSY SENIOR OVERLAY SET

| on
4:54 PM







Due to some really great customer feedback and suggestions... I just updated the "Senior Graduate Text Overlay Templates" set available in my Etsy Shop with the following:
  • Some new previews, 
  • Better organized .PSD layers, 
  • Updated instructions, 
  • A clickable font link file,
  • Individual previews added for each .PSD file, so you can find the file you want to use much easier, 
  • Font source url's added within the applicable layers,
  • and two .PSD file options for either PS Elements (ungrouped layers) or Photoshop CS/CC.   
I also updated two of the fonts. The reason for this is that one of the free fonts required a Tweet. I originally thought I went against using that font since I'm sure not all my customers have Twitter, and neither do I for that matter. Anyways, because this could pose a problem for many, I went ahead and substituted it for a similar font. The second font I decided to replace because it looks to no longer be available for free. I replaced it with an almost identical font option (and one of my all time favorites I might add). Some of my newer templates already have these updates implemented, but it will take some time to get all my older templates caught up with these changes, and improvements.

Below is a preview of all 6 .PSD templates included in this popular set (minus the images).  If you already purchased this set prior to the updates today, no worries as I will be messaging you by next week about how to get the updated version of this set.  Thanks so much, and have a great weekend folks!

So excited and pleased to to have participated in the Creative Market Nepal relief fund effort last month. So if you haven't read it on their blog, $65,851.08 (exactly) was raised by 544 Creative Market shop owners who participated. I'm so proud to be a part of a marketplace that cares enough to value people over profits.  Thanks to all who participated, and contributed, and keep praying for Nepal.

CREATIVE MARKET // AUTUMN CHALLENGE CONTEST PRIZE

| on
11:36 AM


So excited to share this... I joined Creative Market back in July of 2013 when I officially opened my shop. Last August I entered my second Creative Market contest.  Remember the Creative Market Autumn Design Challenge I blogged about last September, here?  Well, I wanted to share a few images of the generous prizes that I won for being the grand prize winner.  

My prizes included the following: 
  • $100 in Creative Market Credits
  • $100 in MOOlah from Moo.com
  • Creative Market T-shirt with a swag design  
01 // Creative Market Credits - well, lets just say I'm still shopping and spending my credits.   ;)

02 //  Moo Moolah -  I received my new Feather & Sage Design Co printed assets ordered from moo.com with my moo-lah prize, and I am smitten with the final results. I could hardly contain my excitement when I received my order. Moo has their packaging, and presentation down to a perfect science.  It's much like receiving a birthday present.  If you've ordered from Moo before, you know exactly what I'm talking about.  Colors, and quality were spot on.  I ordered a few of the Luxe products, and it didn't disappoint.

My order included:
  • Feather & Sage luxe double sided square business cards, 
  • Luxe mini thank you cards 
  • Luxe mini tags for my photography business
  • Some versatile but minimalistic "Hello" glossy postcards that I plan to use as personalized notes for either my design and photo business.  














03 // T-shirt - I also received an awesome Creative Market T-shirt (love the design), and I wear my new swag proudly (and often).  It was accompanied by a sweet hand written note from Kelley Johnson (staffer extraordinaire at Creative Market).  ;)



Thank you so much Creative Market for such a fun challenge, and some pretty awesome prizes!  ;)

FREEBIE // HAND DRAWN WATERCOLOR PATTERN

| on
3:16 PM
It's been a little while since I've posted or given anything away lately.  I've been working hard, really hard behind the scenes on several projects, and have been buried in the very mundane task of completing my taxes (boring I know, but necessary).  So to relax, generally I enjoy painting, and sketching (and OK... Pinning) during some down time.  Last night I made this watercolor background, scanned it into my computer this morning, and decided that it would make a great little digital freebie.  It's just a simple watercolor pattern with shades of blue, green, and gray (.PNG file format).

DOWNLOADING THE WATERCOLOR FREEBIE:  
** Please read the "terms & conditions" below, before downloading  
  1. To download just click on the watercolor image below;
  2. then right click;
  3. 'save image as';
  4. and enjoy!

  >>   SAMPLE OF WHAT YOU CAN CREATE   <<  

Below are just a few examples of what you can do with this watercolor pattern...

CAN BE USED AS A SHAPE OVERLAY:
Here, I used Photoshop, and added the watercolor overlay in it's own layer above two of my banners from this set, then attached it using the clipping mask.  


CAN ALSO BE USED AS A TEXT OVERLAY:
In Photoshop, I added the watercolor overlay in it's own layer above one of my text layer, and attached using the clipping mask.
EASILY CHANGE THE COLORS:
In Photoshop, I simply added a solid color overlay, and adjusted the blending mode to 'color'.  You could also adjust the 'Hue/Saturation' to change the color or use the Gradient Map. Then adjust the blending mode and opacity to taste.

Just in time for Valentines... this new digital overlay set is a fun 'love' themed pre-made set that you can easily add to your images, and use in web or on print.   It includes 16 unique designs.  All you need is editing software that allows you to use layers (like Adobe Photoshop or Photoshop Elements).

Each overlay comes in an individual file (.png format), each with transparent backgrounds (in both black and white).  You can easily add custom colors, just use my step-by-step tutorial to help you along the way, here: Colorize PNG Overlays
