Photo masks, coupons, challenges and a freebie! Oh boy! I’ve got lots of things to share with you today!

Creative Photo Masks

First up, one my Creative Team members, Anne Herbert (“Oldenmeade” in the galleries) made a wonderful page called “Precious” using Miss Ella. I just love it’s watery-painterly yummy-ness and her use of whitespace. Click on her image below to leave her some love in the gallery.


Photo Mask Tutorial

One of the things I love most about Anne’s page is that she got creative with the photo mask for her fabulous egret picture. In this tutorial, I’ll walk you through how Anne designed her gorgeous page and then I’ll figure out for your how she masked her photo!

And, as s a special treat, you can use Coupon Code: VRD-ELLA-ONE to take $1.00 off your purchase of Miss Ella (and it comes with a free template)! The coupon is valid through July 31.

Time to Renew

Next up … some of you may remember that towards the end of 2016, I retired from designing, totally burned out. But, by the beginning of 2017, I had regained my creative mojo and re-opened at Oscraps. A watercolor art piece I made during my hiatus ended up being the inspiration for a massive collection Time to Renew.  In fact, last June, during one of our “Scrap and Chat” sessions, my products were featured and then walked through how I incorporated that watercolor piece into Time to Renew. There’s also short tutorial on one idea for using really busy papers on a page. Watch that recording here.

For a summer special, I’ve put the Time to Renew Collection on sale for 50% off. AND use Coupon Code: VRD-RENEW-ONE to take an additional $1.00 off your purchase! The coupon is valid through July 27th. Click the image to take a closer look at the collection in my shop – and be sure to watch the short video in the product description.
