CHRISTMAS WORDS AND WISHES

Blog Layout Christmas

I think I’ve used FaLaLaLa, Let it Snow and Ho, Ho, Ho on more or less everything this year – tags, cards and personalised email messages to friends, the list goes on!

All of these messages and words are instant digital downloads and come as .png files and PS brushes so you can stamp them anywhere and everywhere, print them out at home and you’re done! It really couldn’t be easier and they look gorgeous. Christmas Volume 2 also include some silver and gold metallic effect options just because we could all do with a little bit of sparkle at this time of the year.

And … and … there are New Year wishes available too for those looking ahead to 2016 with some bonus ‘Falling Stars’ papers.

WORDS + PICTURES

Old Image small

The new theme of overlays is officially out! It’s a lovely collection of quotes and words that photographers will relate to and I think my favourite theme so far in the LetteraEtc collection.

These overlays can be used for personal scrapbooking projects or to create a unique gift, or you can use them in your business, within limits. I hope I’ve been flexible enough in the copyright usage and in setting a great price for these overlays for them to be accessible to everyone.

To see the full range, you’ll need to hop over to Etsy where I’m selling them under the name LetteraEtc, along with some borders and hand-drawn clipart.

This is what you get; 12 hi-res hand-calligraphed quotes or words in PNG format and two of the designs – Don’t Be Negative and Photography is my Therapy – have 5 colour options. PLUS, all of the designs are supplied as ABR Photoshop brushes files for you to stamp across any project or image that takes your fancy and it’s super easy to change the colour too.

Hope you enjoy them!!

MISPLACED, NOT LOST

A little time offline can do strange things to a person.

In the two weeks I’ve been away, I’ve reignited a passion that I had all but lost and all because my mum had found a bag of my sketchbooks while she was clearing out her cellar. It felt truly bizarre to be looking through those books, I remembered them vividly yet, at the same time, I felt so disconnected to who that person was. I had forgotten her.

Generally, people say that what you loved doing as a child should act as a guide to your future career or calling and those books reminded me of what I loved most of all in my youth – words. Page after page of those sketchbooks are filled with my very amateurish attempts at calligraphy (so many fonts, so little time!) and fragments of first paragraphs for the book I dreamt of writing. Now, with 47 years of hindsight, I can hear echoes of my love of letters and words throughout my life but, despite so many reminders, I have just let them go.

So, to begin, I’m feeding that need to add a flourish to everything I write and have signed up for an online calligraphy course. I start today!

BABY, IT’S COLD OUTSIDE

AVERT EYES if you’re avoiding all things Christmassy!

Just added this lovely range of goodies to my S6 shop based on the ‘Let it Snow’ design that has been a bestseller of mine. I don’t know why these have consistently sold throughout the year (don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining), but I thought it the right time to expand the design. I’m planning new lines and colours over the next couple of days, probably a frosty blue/green and perhaps purple or a black too. Will keep you posted with the finished item.

HELLO MARCH

The sun is shining, the birds are chirping … hello March! I have a great month ahead, busy but great. We are moving house, my daughter will turn 6, most of the work will happen on my new website and we’ll be going back to Canazei at the end of the month to ski. Whoosh!! Hope yours is a good one.
