Alpha Tutorial for PSE6

Do you HATE cropping each individual alpha that you have created? So do I! But I discovered how to let PSE do at least that much for you. Click on the image to read how to get it done!
Unfortunately, the process flattens each image, so you will need to delete the white background, but I think this is still easier than the cropping process! Have fun!

Royanna Fritschmann's white tag is what is being used in the image below for my alpha.

New Product in the Store

I was able to get quite a few layouts done last night on the trip home from Maryland. My goal was to create some quick pages to sell using my latest kit, Friendship Company. And in that process I got some cute pages of Kara's visit done. Here is the link to the Friendship Company Quick Pages in the store. They are 12"x12" pages which can easily be changed to 8"x8" pages, which is the size I always use for when I get books printed. Usually, if the books are free, they are the 8x8 size. I've never seen a free 12x12 book offer!

The quick page does not have the X through the word "friendship." I just did that for the purpose of this layout.

YEAH!!!!!! Are your daffodils blooming yet? Sure hope so!

My new kit was inspired by the theme of a Brownie Scraps blog train that begins on Thursday, March 11th. Friendship is the theme and I have named this kit, Friendship Company. That title came from a kids song we listened to when the kids were young! Anyway, since I was going to make a mini for the blog train, I decided to beef it up and make a whole kit to coordinate with the mini that I will be giving away on the blog train on Thursday. This is a sneak peek at the kit, which will be in the store tomorrow! I'll post a couple of layouts at that time, too, that I have created using the kit.

Thanks for visiting TODAY!
