♥Same Old Stuff♥

Same Old Stuff, brand new blog.....
I have now retired (god I feel so old saying that lol) from scrap making, in all truth there are 2 reasons for this....
1 - my heart just isn't in it anymore, when you're heart is no longer in something there is no point carrying on
2 - it seems every Tom, Dick and Harry is now making scraps, I am not fighting for a sale. It's not worth the hassle or the cash outlay to make a few bucks
So I'm leaving the scrapping world, maybe if the bug ever bites me again I'll return but until then....
So this brings me neatly here....Same Old Stuff, I've got back to my passion, making tags and writing tutorials. My tut site has been sooo neglected these past 12 months, so I'm going back to that. I've also discovered how to make blog layouts (thanks girls you know who you are) so I may whip up a few freebies and share them here....this is just my space for ramblings and such...

New Blinkies

I couldn't sleep last night, so while I was uploading tags for my always list and the Tagging Me Tagging You game @ Creative Misfits, I thought I'd play in psp and make some new blinkies for my blog..

For some reason I actually find making blinkies quite relaxing. I need to make a couple of new ones for my web site too might do those later on.

Anyway new blinkies lol oh crap blogger doesn't like animated things so I can't add a preview here (grrr @ blogger) they need to fix that crap!!

So new blinkies are over there ----->

New Tutorial @ Fi's Fault

I've just posted a new tutorial over on my tut site..called Elias Girl and you can find it [link]
It doesn't use any scraps or elements, just what PSP gives you and a texture and I think you get a lovely results. It's a forum sized tag but can easily be adjusted to make a standard sized tag

Here's a couple of previews:

This one I amde a while ago, but it uses the same basic principle, I just made the image slightly smaller so I could add a drop shadow and remove the frame

My First Template & 3 New Tuts

My first proper template, well properish lol...is properish a real word?? Ack I dunno and I don't care lol
It's only a very basic template but it's a start and it was actually made for a tutorial I wrote, but posting it in it's own right too

You can download it [link] its compatable with PSP7 upwards if you need it in PSD let me know and I'll convertto PSD and upload here too

This is the tutorial I used the template in :)

It's called Naughty Barb and you can find it [link] it's actually animated but blogger doesn't like animated tags

I also have 2 more new tutorials...

On A Roll.....

I'm on a roll today woo hoo, I've made another 2 sets of snags and a new blog layout *does a dance round her office like the looney she is* Plus I made a few tags for my always list and some randoms for a group I'm in, phew. It's so nice to get back to tagging, scrapping was becoming a slight chore and with my 4 kids, husband, dog and cat I have enough of those already!

Remembering the previews this time....

Dean Yeagle IM Stat

I was downloading my mail this morning for one of the gorups I'm in and one of the girls was sharing some new stats, I thought to myself I haven't made a stat in like forever, so off to PSP I went and whipped up a new stat and some matching snags

You can get the snags from my gallery [link]

♥Welcome & Free Layout♥

*waves hello like a looney*

Hi Everyone,
I'm so glad you found my new home and I hope you aren't to upset that I have left the scrapping world....but as I previously stated it was time for me to leave and there is no point in doing something that your heart isn't in :(

I've spent most of today playing with my layout, I wanted it to be just right before I announced my blog and I think I finally have it right, too late now if it isn't lol. I also did a new layout for my mum's blog which you can see [link]. I love my mum to bits and her blog was very plain so she deserved a wee makeover and she is training so hard for her first triatholon in a few weeks, with very little support from the family so I treated her to a nice new look, that screams mum lol

Anyway, after doing this blog and my mum's I thought I'd play about with some of my scrap kits, I ended up binning most of the layouts I did, they just didn't 'sit' right if tht makes sense. This one however I did like, it's very girlie which is totally me and completely FREE. Just click to get the bigger/full size image and save to your pc..then upload and add as normal

Feedback/Comments are very much appreciated, it lets me know if this is the sort of thing I should be offering or whether I should just stick to tags and tuts lol
