Some freebies and some tips…

Just in case you were wondering…only 3 weeks until Valentine’s Day (so start dropping those hints now to your sweetie)!   To me, Valentine’s Day isn’t just for sweethearts…it’s also a time to tell our friends and family how much they mean to us.  There is a quote that I love that goes “Truly great friends are hard to find, difficult to leave and impossible to forget” and another quote that really defines a good friend… “It’s the friends you can call up at 4am that matter”.   I hope that I’m that kind of friend!

In honor of Valentine’s Day (and my friends) Taylor & I have created a new mini-kit for you!  It’s called “Hugs and Kisses” and we hope you like it.  There will be more to follow, but this first set includes 4 papers, 5 buttons & 1 clip.  Coming soon are more papers, some ribbon & wire word art.  Thanks to Stephanie at for the heart brushes!  Just click on the 4shared link below to start your downloading fun!

 Now for the Photoshop tips…did you know that to zoom in you can use Ctrl+ and to zoom out you can use the Ctrl-(minus) keys?!!  If you zoom out too much, you can press Ctrl zero(0)  to fit the image back into the screen.  Also, a cool trick to try when you are using the Type Tool and you want to  reposition your text… simply move your cursor away from your words and the cursor will switch to the Move Tool.  After you’ve placed the words in their new position just click back in the text to continue writing.  Give it a try…it’s really pretty neat!
