Please head on over to Scraps For Charity and pick up your copy of this kit for 50% through the end of the month and support a good cause!!

Are you ready for fun, games and a rocking sale? This weekend, July 20-22, Digi by Design is celebrating Christmas in July! There are lots of fun events planned like bingo, trivia, an ornament exchange and a LO challenge with me! On top of all that most of the designers in the store are participating in a 40% off sale. Isn't Christmas great? Even if it is the middle of July!!!

We also having Stocking Stuffers for you. These grab bag style stocking stuffers are full of goodies for you and only $2.50 a piece! You can pick mine up right here, I promise, you won't regret it!!

In other news... Don't forget that my new Photo-Graphing actions are still on sale 50% off through Sunday. I have a version that works in PSE and one that works in PS 7, CS, CS2 and CS3. I've seen people really rocking this action lately. Miss Kim used it on one of her LO's and she has a freebie template up on her blog of the LO. She was one of my awesome action testers :)

Finally, a little treat just for you, maybe a little temptation to see what else awaits you? Maybe you see some similarities between this freebie and what could possibly be in the stocking stuffer? I'm not saying this is whats in there but.... ENJOY!!!!!!!! Merry Christmas in July!!

I have both versions on sale for 50% off through the 22nd of July. Grab it quick! You can get the PS7, CS, CS2, CS3 version as well.

Photo Graphing Photoshop Action!

The last few days I've been doing the CRD Challenges on the DST boards and the last two LO's I did I added a cool graphing overlay to my photos. Well everyone seemed to love the look of it so I decided to turn it into an action! You can pick Photo-Graphing up at OAKS for 50% off through July 22nd!

Creating this thing was quite a learning experience. Since this is my very first action I gathered a bunch of testers to make sure it works and some of them gave fab suggestions *Jenn Patrick* and *Jannylynn Brokken* were especially helpful, though I'm still working out a few kinks Jannylynn is helping me with for the PSE version.

Here are the two LO's I did that everyone seemed to love.
