Finally, some freebie photo actions for you.  They are created with the same colors as the kit, for some coordinating monochromatic goodness.  Enjoy!

Tested in PSE11+, CS3+, CC
As with any action, sometimes the layers need a little tweak.  You can lower the opacity of the gradient map layer to let a little color peek through or change the blend mode of the solid color layer to soft light or screen to change the contrast.

Feisty and Freebie

This kit was inspired by one of my creative team member's little Yorkie.  Once I got to researching the little dog, I realized their personalities sounded a lot like my tiny, but fierce daughter - and the high class, empowering, tiny creature kit was born.  For all the small, but might in your life, here is Feisty.

And a little something for you.  The freebie includes a coordinating dog tag and engraved style.

So "Fawned" of You New Release, Tutorial, and Freebie

It's January 1st and that means Buffet time.  It also means, that I am officially staying on at Gingerscraps full time - a great way to ring in the New Year!  To celebrate, I have a coordinating alpha freebie for you (way down there at the bottom of the post), but don't scroll too fast, there is a fun mini tutorial and great new release you don't want to miss.

My contribution to the GS Buffet, {So "Fawned" of You}, a sweet deer meets Valentine's Day kit with some very "deer" word art is 50% off through January 5th.

With all the holiday crazy, I somehow found time to scrap a page myself.  (You are also going to want to snap up this sweet Buffet template by Pixelily that I used in my layout too).

To help my word art stand out in the cluster, I added a transparent background.  To create this effect yourself, click your word art layer while holding down the CTRL key.  This will create a selection of your word art.  Then go to SELECT>MODIFY>EXPAND.  I expanded the selection here by 40 pixels.  Create a new layer under your word art layer, and, while the new layer is selected, click ALT and BACKSPACE at the same time to fill the selection with color (use the color picker to select a coordinating color from your layout).  I then lowered the new layer's opacity and added a drop shadow to the new layer and word art layer.  You could also clip a paper to your expanded selection for a fun alternative.
