Just having fun!

It's Sunday...a day to relax, go to church, spend time with family and have fun before going back to work on Monday. So, that's what I did. Just thought I'd show a progression of this photo using some actions and borders that I've created. Please let me know what you think!

The final photo, shown larger below uses the enchantment action,
the vignette action and a swirly-grunge border.

A "Snappy" new postcard...

Sarah Ra'anan asked me to create a postcard for her to hand out in celebration of the Jewish New Year...and just to keep me on my toes, she asked me to add a few lines in Hebrew. The colors were chosen because one of the themes of the Jewish New Year is apples & honey - which would also explain the pictures.

The lines in Hebrew read: "A quiet year, a beautiful year, a tranquil year. A year of peace, a year of dreams and love." The translation was so beautiful that I felt I had to share it...hmmmm...maybe I'll have make another card that says that in English as well.

One more template...

This one will replace the 4x8 that was in the embellished holiday set.

This is a 5x5 press-printed bi-fold card. It can also be easily printed as a 5x5 2-sided flat card.

Fun & Whimsical Logo

Angie was looking for a scrapbook style logo, something flourishy and textured, for a new forum that she was starting.

Angie - good luck with your new forum, I wish you much success!

I was framed!

Oh, guess my daughter was the borders below! I already have a grunge set of borders, but have been working on a grunge-flourish set as well. Well after much trial and error, here's my first few flourish borders...

Keep watching, I'll have more soon!

More templates and a slight change...

I just finished this card...
...which I will be adding to my Holiday 2007 collection. Several people have asked specifically for 4x8 cards, so I will be pulling all the 4x8 cards from the other sets and adding a couple more to it to create a new 4x8 holiday set. Keep your eyes out for it very soon!


This card is the new Milano Grunge 07 that will replace the 4x8 in the grunge collection. It's a 5x7 press printed card, shown here with the special back for it and a sample text for the inside.

Fingerprints of God...

Lindsay Vinson of Bell City, Missouri just had me design this logo for her business...
Lindsay style is fun with a sophisticated edge to it, so we needed a logo to match. This logo incorporates a fun handwritten text with a clean cut font to give it just that touch of sophistication. The logo style also allows for easy customization of the colors for use on any type of print piece she would need.

If you're in the Bell City area and looking for a photographer,
call 573-733-4477 or

Thanks Lindsay for letting me put my "fingerprint" on your logo design. You've been great to work with and I hope we can work together again in the future. Good luck with everything!
