New Glitter Goodies!

Hello Blog Readers!! I have three new goodies for you this week and a sale!

First up, I have a Mega Glitter Pack containing 15 glitter styles! There are some solid colors and some multi colored glitters. This pack has been tested in Photoshop CS and up as well as in Photoshop Elements 5 and up. Installation instructions are included. This glitter pack is also licensed for Commercial Use!

Are you addicted to glitter? Have you ever wanted your own customized blend? Well look no further. Beginning July 1st at the Gingerscraps store, you can purchase my Customized Glitter Styles! You will receive 8 custom made glitter styles - 1 ASL file for Photoshop and Photoshop Elements users and 8 12x12 PNG Glitter Sheets for use in all other programs. On July 1st, head over to Gingerscraps to check out all the details!

Next I have a glitter pack addition to my previously released kit, Woodland Park Zoo. There are 6 personal use glitters that coordinate with the kit. As with all of my glitters, these have been tested in Photoshop CS and up as well as in Photoshop Elements 5 and up.

While you're browsing my glitters, check out the rest of them in the Gingerscraps store!
I have coordinating glitters for In the Pink Spotlight, It's 5 O'Clock Somewhere, and Romantical.

And from July 1st through July 5th, all of my Glitters are 10% off!! This includes my CU Mega Glitter Pack too!! (Custom Made glitters are NOT on sale)

We're not in Kansas anymore...

Hey y'all Tara's everyone's weekend so far?  Full of scrapping and creating memories to scrap I hope...anyone notice it's a little different around here at the Scrap Paperie? 

Well that's because Misty's blog's been under construction (as you can see in the header) and we're almost done wih Phase 1!  You noticed her awsome new blog background, right?  Does it look a little familiar?  Well if your a Misty O'Brien fan (and obviously you are cuz you're here, right?) then you know that her background is from her Romantical kit!!  Created by none other than yours truly, for your viewing pleasure- I have a little tweaking left to do and who knows, maybe you'll be able to have a Misty O'Brien blog background soon!

We're not just making aesthetic changes, oh no!  Soon, we'll have weekly games, contests, a guestbook for you to show off what you've created with Misty's kits and some more cool stuff that we just know you'll love!!  So make sure you check back often or follow the blog (it's over there on the right), you'll be glad you did!
