I should have been putting together a post for all of you, but I got distracted with creating a new blog banner for my personal blog. I use the word create loosely, because I impulse buy..........I bought a digi-banner kit from Two Peas knowing full well that I don't possess the talent to actually use them.........because I have no idea how to use my Photoshop elements 4.0.......I keep thinking I'm going to wake up one day and just naturally know what to my surprise, I figured something out this afternoon. And it only took me about 3 hours. LOL.......I am giddy. I can't tell if it's the See's chocolate or actually figuring out a bit of PSE4.0

Then I got so sure of myself, I created one for my girlfriend...........Can you just imagine if I knew how to sew?

Don't forget to leave a comment on yesterdays post to be entered for the drawing.

edited to add: She didn't think it was girly enough, so I did a different one. So much more "her".....I also need to change the fonts.

Gig Harbor Scrapper? I just spent Christmas there...I'm from Port Orchard. How fun.

How funny. I did the same thing today and ended up making my own with the Holiday Dazzle kit. Now, could someone tell me how I add elements??????? LOL

I've been on this blog for a total of 26 seconds and I'm already madly in love with you.

This stuff is beautiful!

Love your banners!

Wow, I love them. I too keep thinking that the digi bug will just magically convert me. I have so much stuff saved and a stack of books, mags, etc. that just make me more and more confused.

I love your blogs though, and even added your blinky to mine this morning.

Any advise on making a banner would be appreciated. Mine definitly lacks.

I love the birds in the banners.

UGH I'm still trying to figure out Photoshop! And my hubby is a graphics designer/web developer!

Trish said...

I LOVE the banners!!!! I am so jealous...I can't figure out my PSE either...and I will not admit how many tutorials I've done, or classes, or books bought to learn how...Yours are SO beautiful! I'm glad tomorrow is a holiday -- you have inspired me to try again to learn my PSE. Thanks!

Wow! They are great! I had no idea there was such a thing as a digi-banner kit. Must go check it out. This is just wonderful.

BTW, I drifted here from... I don't know what blog. Love it.

Happy new year!
