Free Kaleidoscope Plug-in for Photoshop!

The photo at the top is of a concrete mosaic garden sculpture I made a few summers ago, and the one below it  is a kaleidoscope of a closeup of that photo. I was over at Extreme Cards and Papercrafting - one of my very favorite blogs (my love for/addiction to pop-ups goes waaaaay back to childhood), and she had posted about this wonderful free plug-in for Photoshop (in its many guises) for creating kaleidoscopes of your photos.

I had just seen an episode of Scrapbook Memories on Saturday where they incorporated kaleidoscope printouts into a fabulous valentine card, and was interested in making one, but can't afford the software. Voila! You can download software like it for free at:

They have all kinds of free plug-ins for PS, including photo collages. Wowwy - what a fun way to spend some time! Thank you Carol, and the wonderful people at!

Valentine Heart-edged Envelope & Cottage Digi-paper

Grrrr -  If I could figure out how to put three photos beside each other...

This is the A2 lined envelope I made to go along with the Valentine Rose Cottage card, below. The digi-paper is my own design, and is available for $1.00. The envelope svg, also my design, is free here. I plan on using a couple of Penny Duncan's gorgeous shaplies on the center front of the envelope for the name of the recipient. Here is a link to Penny's blog:

Upon notification from Paypal of funds received, I will email you the appropriate files, including all necessary svg's, scut2 files, as well as a sheet of assembly instructions where needed which includes a photo of the finished project for reference. Please use the "Donate" button to order, and leave a note under "Purpose" on the Paypal page, telling me which file it is that you want. Thanks for your interest! I appreciate your business so much!

Happy Valentines Day!

Rose-Covered Cottage Valentine

I am obsessed with little "Glitter Houses", also known as "Putz houses". I have been working on several 3D svgs for them, so when I decided to make a Valentine card, I just naturally gravitated to a little Victorian, complete with gingerbread and white lace curtains. Brings back memories of our grand old house in Clintonville - sigh.
I recently discovered - a wonderful blog with little houses on cards. Gorgeous stuff. Check her out!
