We have a winner…….

Hey Folks,

P.C. made it back in one piece and is a very happy chappy with lots of updates and bells and whistles. He’s so excited with his new makeover he’s positively whizzing about my desk. I can hardly keep up, lol.

We had so much fun going through all the fabulous names you guys came up with and there were some awesome suggestions. You sure didn’t make it easy for us to choose just one but sadly, there wasn’t room for every name. We did, in the end, plump for one that fitted both PC and myself perfectly and to be honest, I can’t believe I didn’t think of it myself.

Naturally, as it is how I got my nic-name some 54 and a bit years ago thanks to my Uncle, we just had to go with Yogi. Well done RB. Your name for PC is a perfect fit. Please email Rae at   88Mwife@gmail.com   stating Winner Yogi PC in the subject line for your PRIZE 😉 A fantastic $25 Coupon to spend on your choice of goodies at BooLand.

Boo Think You Should Call Your Pc Buzz~To Infinity & Beyond:) Which It Has Been, Or Yogi As Your Boo!:P Sorry Couldnt Resist That One Or Pheonix Hugs Ri :)xXx

Huge thanks to everyone who took part. I hope you had fun and only wish there were prizes for everyone. Better luck next time folks 😉

Now that we have our winner taken care of it’s time to take a look at this weeks New Collection.

I’ve really been enjoying taking a trip down memory lane via the STUDIO Blog. This week I found a little treasure that’s just perfect for me as a font addict. I’m not kidding, I have thousands, eeekkkkk. Don’t tell Yogi, he’s sure thats what did him in last time lol. Well, I just can’t help it, I love a nice font and this Studio Blog post has found some gorgeous ones…..

A Few of My Favorite Things…Fonts!

Hello! It’s Bryony here from Heartstrings Scrap Art with a new series starting on the blog called ‘A Few of my favourite things’.

Every couple of weeks I will bring you a new list of some of the things that I love when I am scrapping. They might be fonts, kits, templates, designers, techniques etc. A different topic each time. Today I am starting with FONTS. I am a freelance graphic designer and do a lot of magazine work. So fonts are a big thing for me….

Bryony has a freebie on there too. Read the rest of this post HERE

Hey folks,

How are you all today? I have no idea what I’m doing right now as I’m writing this post ahead of time due to PC going in for his service. All I can tell you is there were fits of nerves, many tears and cries of ‘please don’t leave me‘ and that was just me. Poor PC was visibly shaking….. or was that my IT man trying to exit the house as quickly as possibly to escape from this mad woman? 😉 

While PC is away you have one more chance to enter our ‘Name my PC‘ competition and be in with a chance to win a super prize so don’t forget to add your choice of name in the comments section of the BLOG. All being well, we will announce the winner on Saturday (if PC is back by then).

Meanwhile, let’s take a look at what I have in store for you today……

I love looking through the archives at the STUDIO. You never know when you might happen upon something that is just perfect for what you need or perhaps find a tip or tutorial that really helps your workflow. Today I found this old post tucked away and thought it deserved another viewing. I’m always on the lookout for great CU products but as a scrapper it’s not always something you might think would add value and use to your stash. Here are some great reasons why you should always look at the CU product range as well as the PU range, even if you only ever use them for creating your own layouts.

Here’s a good example…..

I make these background papers to coordinate with the kit or collection so they are perfect for the scrapper to add to her stash as they make brilliant backgrounds when you want some continuity, such as a series of layouts for a photobook for instance but, they are labelled as CU (Commercial Friendly) so they often get overlooked by the scrapper who may think they don’t apply to her. 

In my case and in most designers case CU simply means we created this product entirely ourselves and therefore own the copyright to the product so we can offer the item to both scrappers and Designers alike.

If a Designer uses them she may use them ‘as is’ to add to a kit or collection she is creating. She may also choose to desaturate or alter the color or even add elements, patterns and so on to make them more unique and to fit with her design.

As a scrapper you have exactly the same option to create a more unique paper/element as well as the obvious bonus of having a nice selection of papers to creating a good coordinated flow for your layout series/photobooks.

Read Karens great tips on how much more you can do with CU products.

How Personal Use Scrappers can Utilize Commercial Use Tools

by SnickerdoodleDesigns

You read it in many designers commercial-use (CU) product descriptions:  “Perfect for the personal-use scrapper too!”

Sure, there are some CU products that might not be of interest to a personal scrapper; but there are also a lot of CU products that can be absolutely perfect for them! Read the rest of this very interesting topic over on the STUDIO Blog

As Sweet As You

New Collection out now

Hey Folks,

Well I have to say I am totally loving all the fabulous names you guys are coming up with in our little ‘Name my PC’ competition. We are running it on for another week to give everyone a chance to add their favorite name to the list and be in with the chance of winning a great prize so don’t forget to add your choice in the comments section of this post. Good luck 🙂

It’s Mothering Sunday tomorrow here in the UK and though I won’t get chance to spend it with my Mum as we live too far apart I will no doubt get the chance to have a good old chin wag with her sometime during the day. Hopefully, she will have received her bouquet and fancy chocs and be feeling very spoiled, as she should. 

It seems to me that Mothers Day has always been a bit of a big deal in my family. I can remember quite clearly as a very young child going into town with my younger sisters and Dad to buy Mum the perfect gift. She collected figureens at the time and it was always so lovely browsing through the store and choosing something special for her shelf. Afterwards Dad would treat us to a ham and tomato sandwich and some special handmade toffee. We always loved watching the toffee being made. I can still taste it now….

Today, in honor of my Mum and all Mums celebrating Mothering Sunday I have a brand new collection inspired by, yup, you guessed it, my Mum, lol. She loves Sweet Peas so of course, she must have Sweet Peas.

Basic Photo Action by Toiny with FREE Action

A couple weeks ago, I posted a simple how-I-edit-photo’s tutorial and included a basic photo edit action (Frustration with a freebie). Turns out, you guys love that! We’ve had a rough week, nothing dramatic, just rough, and I woke up this morning to no new photo’s magically on my camera. Luckily I have a Dane. He happily poses for photo’s so we ran upstairs to our “winter garden” (aka: 4-season room) to take  some quick photo’s. Read the rest of this tutorial on the STUDIO Blog

Hi Folks,

Well, I can’t pretend it’s been an easy week for me, what with my precious iMac being in IT hospital and my PC clunking along bravely until it goes in for servicing soon, it sure has been difficult to keep going and trying to get work completed to deadlines but, somehow, this brave little guy has managed to pull off yet another week of fabulous gorgeousness for me so today, I have a lovely new OSB kit and goodies to boot. Thank you PC, you’ve worked very hard and been very brave and yes, I really ought to give you a name after all this…..

What do you folk think we should call this brave little computer? Leave your ideas in the comments and I’ll let him choose one and win you a prize. Howz that? 🙂
