Stars and Stripes

Today I bring you titiings of a new kit in Every Ever After Moment Desings store called Stars and Stripes. It is an Independance Day themed kit, but it looks like it could be used for other things too. I was wishing I had a photo of that last space ship (USA) blasting off into space to use.

Cupcake Creations

Lovely Creations has another new kit out (she's been putting out quite a few lately hasn't she?). This one is called Cupcake Creations just incase you havn't figured that out by the title :). It is a really nice kit and can be used both as a nice girly kit or male as well. I chose to go male with my layouts:

I also have a little wordart freebie to share as well.You can download it by clicking here then clicking on the zipped file named Leah_LC_CC_freebie


Creating a stroked frame/ freebie

This is a tutorial on how to create a page with frame going all the way around it, known as a stroked border.
1. Select the rectangular marque tool and draw a selection around your page about 1/4th " from the edge.

2. Create a new layer and select it. Edit> Stroke Outline Selection.

3. Set the size to 20 pixels. The color to a color from your layout, the placement to center, the style to normal and the opacity to 100%.

4. Choose the eraser tool and select square brushed from the drop down menu then find a solid square brush. Erase any parts of the image that you don't want the frame to cover.

5. Using the vertical text tool create your title.  

6. Using the rectangular marque draw a selection box around the text. Select the frame layer and press the delete key.

  • To get a more varied look fallow the same steps but lower the frames opacity and duplicate it a couple times. Then rotate them all a bit in different directions and varry the opacitys.
  • Try using the liquify filter ( Filter > Distort > Liquify) and use the 'turbulance tool' to add wavy look.
  • Duplicate a small flower or element and put it on the frame to give an elegant feel.
  • select the frame and use varied opacity brushed to give it a grainy feel.

4th of July Celebration

I'm sure everyone in the states has pictures from the 4th. The firework show, or the family reunion, or maybe it was a neighborhood BBQ. Well Lovely Creations has a fairly new kit out there called 4th of July Celebration.
As usual I have some inspiration to get your brain turning:

Its not to late you could create a desktop for the STS desktop challenge.

And finally I made a freebie with it.

Here is the download link. Clicking on the zip labeled Leah_LC_4JC_freebie should bring up a download box.

Making a CT Card

I made these cards for the STS July Hybrid Challenge to help me keep track of my CT duties.
This is the first one for the Lovely Creations CT. I made it with Divalicouse by Andriana's Cafe.

Here is what the text says.
1. Create a document ~8” wide and ~4” wide.
2. Place a patterned paper from the kit Divalicious by Andrana’s Cafe.
3. Using ribbon or stitching create a line across the top for the kit title.
4. Use an alph to put the designer name under that.
5. Create a grid using lines the width should be the CT creation
requirements +1 and the height should be the posting requirements +1.
6. Label acordingly.
7. Print out and trim.
8. punch very small decorative holes to the left and right of each row.
9. Place adhesives on the back and matt with cardstock.
10. Punch ribbon threading holes and thread ribbon through and tie in
 any boxes that are NA.

To use write the name of the kit on the top line. Write the date of release in the top left box. As you complete things and post them to galleries check them off in the apropriet boxes. For example when LO1 is done and has been posted to Yahoo I would check of the box between LO1 and Yahoo.  When everything is complete sign on the top of the grid.

I also made one other one for Every EverAfter Moment Designs CT.
I made it with Candy Kisses by Manda Lane Scraps.

I also did an animation to go along with the tutorial.

1. Create a new page (4x3) and put a cardstock on.
2. Add a ribbon, ricrac or stiching to the top of the page to put the kit title on.
3. Under that spell out the designer name with an alpha.
4. Then add horizontal gridlines with a stich or ribbon. The number of places you are required to post +2.
5. Then add vertical dividers with a ribbon or stitch the number of things you create +1.
6. Add labels in the left column and top row.
7. Print and laminate for multiple uses.



 Every EverAfter Moment Designs has a wonderful new kit in her store, actually she has a handful of wonderful fairly new kits in her store.
