Falling…

Happy Friday!  Can you believe another Friday is here and October is half over already!  Fall has come and is almost gone here.  The days are getting colder and all the leaves are off the trees.  It’s time to rake the leaves, go to the pumpkin patch and get ready for Halloween and other fall activities!

Bella Gypsy has a new, beautiful fall kit that was released today at Scrap Orchard that is perfect for scrapping pictures from this time of year.

I mentioned I had a headache….well, I had a bit of an accident this week (landed myself in the ER and have to have my head glued back together) and my computer time was VERY limited due to it.  I didn’t have a chance to make a freebie this week but I promise I will make it up to you next week!

Have a great week!

See you next time!

Happy Scrapping!

Sneak Peek–You Are My Happy

**CONTEST IS CLOSED. Thank you so much for your comments! We’ve emailed the winner and the kit will be available for sale in just a few hours at Scrap Orchard!**

 

Lena here with some news!

We’ve been hosting the Sneak Peek giveaway every week on Facebook. After reviewing Facebook’s TOU Agreement closely we’ve determined that it would be better for us to host this here on our own site. We value Facebook as a tool for our business and we’d never want to get in trouble for violating their terms. Hosting a giveaway would be best done here! So, every Wednesday we’ll post a peek here of the new kit. Just leave us a comment for a chance to win. Wednesday nights at 9 pm EST I’ll choose a winner using random.org and email the lucky person links to download the kit before it’s available for sale!

Fright Night

YAY!  Another Friday is here and that means there are some awesome new goodies hitting the Bella Gypsy store over at Scrap Orchard.  It’s Kim here on this fabulous Friday to bring tell you all about the new stuff!

October is here (I really can’t believe I just said that) and that means Halloween is right around the corner.  It is time to stock up on candy and hunt for the perfect costume.  If your children are anything like mine, they change their mind 100 times before they actually decide on a costume.  This year was painless though…we have had their costumes for a month…the first costumes they saw they HAD to have!  EASY PEASY this year!  If your children go trick or treating or have a fall party at school, I am sure you will be taking lots of pictures.  Bella Gypsy’s new kit will help you scrap all those BOO-tiful memories of Halloween this year!  Check out Fright Night!

Here is the entire collection.Photobucket

Break it Up – Tutorial Link + Coupon

Hiya friends, this is Andi, part of the Bella Gypsy Team.  I’m so happy to be here today sharing one of my favorites.  Today I’m sharing a tutorial link I found back in the day when I was first learning my PSE program.  In 2008, I was just learning my PSE 7 program, and frankly I was scared to death of it.  As I searched the web, I found this awesome website called “The Graphic Reporter”, which is now Photo Lesa.  Here’s one of the first things I wanted to try.  I have since blown up a few pics in my time…LOL.

First of all, open your program.  Second, we are going to jump websites.  Really quickly head over to “Photo Lesa“, just click the link & another tab will open.  Now, open your pic and follow the Step by Step tutorial at Photo Lesa for Smashing a Photo into pieces.  I was going to my own version of this tutorial for you, but she’s a professional and has already done all the work for us, so go ahead…I’ll wait for you.

Are you back?  How cool is that?  I love it!

Here is my Broken up pic thrown into a Layout.  I love how it turned out.

[Here’s a little more in-depth instruction for this LO.  I cropped the smashed photo into a circle and created a layer mask over the yellow hexagon paper.  Then I wanted it to have nice shadowing and as I experimented,  a happy thing occurred as I was goofing off with the “bevels” slider in my effects palette.  It was so fun.  So my shadows are 20, 9, 78, and my bevel is at 24 and don’t forget to click on the “down” beveled arrow/icon instead of up.  Does that make sense?  I did this for each of the papers and I just love the look of it.  Are you lost?  If you have questions and need help, I can create a tutorial for that as well].

For this Layout, I am using an amazing Bella Gypsy kit “May Cause Happiness“, which is one of my all time fav’s because of the colors and variety of papers.   But wait, are you ready for some shopping love?  THIS KIT “MAY CAUSE HAPPINESS” WILL BE 30% OFF UNTIL OCT 13TH USING CODE:  bg_happiness

Happy Scrapping, and remember to take a minute to work with the bevel & shadows, you might have find yourself learning new things too!
