Boo!! A Halloween Photo Card Freebie

HAPPY (almost) HALLOWEEN!! To celebrate, I'm offering you, my blog readers, some freebie fun - a 5 x 7 Halloween photo card template in an original design by moi. The only stipulation to use this is that you need Photoshop or Photoshop Elements to put a picture in the template. Here's how to use it:

1. Save the picture above to the location of choice on your computer - your desktop perhaps. Open it in Photoshop or Photoshop Elements.

2. Open the photo you want to put in the card & drag that layer into the file containing the template. Make sure your photo layer is BEHIND the template. Adjust to fit.

3. Save for emailing or print them out for cards, to display on the fridge or to send to out. Your choice!

Enjoy! If you use it, I'd love to see your pictures it in. Feel free to email them to me! If it's ok with you, I'll share them here on the blog.

Anyone dressing up this weekend??

I have to love these! Not just because they are by Amy Locurto of Living Locurto & I {Heart} Faces but look at the message. You're So Batty! Darn skippy :)

Give a Chimp a banana!

MailChimp - these are for you!

I have to give a shout-out to the live chat team at MailChimp right now. Throwing you guys a whole bushel of bananas this morning!

Even though I have created a bah-zillion direct marketing emails for clients, I never had to code them, send them, manage the mailing list. In short, I just made them look pretty. Now the whole enchillada is up to me. And my eyeballs glaze over when people start talking about code & merge tags. Thanks to the live chat team at MailChimp, though, I am maybe, just maybe going to get the hang of this email newsletter thing. Thanks, MailChimp!

Want to be a part of the fun? There's a sign-up box on the right-hand side of the blog. And! There are goodies in it for ya when you sign up. Tempted?? Come join the fun!

Rockin' the Web

Hey! I mentioned before, but thought I'd gently remind you guys, that you can also find my highly amusing writings over on the NewNew Team blog. I recently took a survey on who actually makes up our team (here) & also attempted to post on vacation from a PC last week (here). Maybe skip that last post...unless you like an example of a  Mac users unable to function on a PC...stupid machines...

Anwho, there is lots of interesting stuff going on over there! Enjoy!

Catching up: Bridal Shower Invites

Hey! Remember me? I write this blog. Well, when I can. Obviously. Also obvious is that I haven't been able to write much here recently. Guess why?? 'Cause I have been BUSY. It's been great!!

Let's start with something I did way back at the beginning of the summer & haven't had time to share. This was the kick off to my busy season...bridal shower invitations & coordinating gift tags.

My cousin, Kate, who I did previously discussed note cards for, came back with another project: shower invites for a party she was throwing for her BFF. The bride, Rachel, very fashion oriented, has worked for fashion brands & had picked some great dresses for her bridesmaids that we used as inspiration.
