Which one to choose ?

Well, I have a hard decision to take…. No don’t imagine I will stop designing !! Not yet….

No, that’s not that… Only, XP is no longer updated so…. I yet jump from Windows 2000 to Windows XP quite lately… And now, I he to change again…. What did I install, Win7 or Win 8, what do you think ?

My computer swithed off alone yesterday, I feared for my dear bytes !!! I just receive my new External DD, I was about to plug it when, no sound, no image…  I still don’t know what happens, so while it was off (not so often ! LOL), I have time to take a break and think (once again, not too often !) : “Yes, I will move to another Windows…. “ , it takes me half an hour for formuling this sentence !! And still wonder wich one .. How long Win7 will be updated… Will my computer support Win8… and those programs I have to reinstall… without speaking of those inevitable loss of datas… Pfuuuu ! But these times, my PC is veryyyyy slowwww., I almost loose my mojo… So let me know what you advise me… 7 or 8 ?

So today, I swith off Facebook…. stop watching for new mails and … I design ! Yep M’am ! I design ! A big kit called “You are so…” and I make a photobook in the same time, so I see what is missing in my kit and create it “on the flight” ! Hope you will love it…

I use this palette :

 Paintchip

And here is a free QP I will offer soon (may be today, may be tomorrow…) when I will release my kits : 2 “standard” kits (5 papers + 20 embellishments) + the Bundle and 1 or 2 kits of additional papers…

You are So 12x12 PB-012

Well,  wait to hear your preference between Win7 and Win8, and I will let you know what I choose and when my “YOU ARE SO…” is released….

News from Me !

Hi,

Since I begin to design for Scrapbooking, 10 years ago, style and quality standard have changed ! When I begin, the aim of digital scrapbooking is to copy the “real” scrapbooking, we have to be really careful to realistic shadows, papers are like real papers, and you couldn’t imagine to stick a real flower on a page !

Without talking of quality, we didn’t talk about QC (Quality Check or Quality Control) !

But style had evoluate, and Altered Art and realistic embellishments appeared and with so many designers, QC is become a mandatory operation for many shops.

I decide to QC all my items again, and particularly the oldest ones and focisong specially on Gamut, to ensure you that all my designs are printing-friendly !

It is a very long process, so little by little all my kits will pass the “roping” QC … I add a logo on my “2014 QC” kits, et voilà !

For our friend Kerrie

One of my best Scrap designer friend Kerrie Mandogscrap, is living hard times. Her 17 years soulmate, Gary, just passed away after only 15 days since they know is has massive cancer. They just have time to mary. A funny story Kerrie said : on the way to Dr on the wed, she said “maybe we should get married” - Gary replied “don't think so”, as he always did. When they left the Dr, he said “Better go to the courthouse and see what we have to do to get married”.

Kerrie would never ask for help. They live on 40 acres of bush in a caravan and were slowly building a house. gary had a bike accident some years ago and nearly died and so they relied on pensions and live simply. He did not have insurance, just accident insurance and no funeral insurance. I know it is going to be a huge struggle for her financially, as well as mentally and physically as they have no savings and her income will be cut drastically.

A friend has started an account for donations for a funeral.

We immediately began a group with designers to make a donation collaborative kit for Kerrie, and we are now 79 designers !! The palette is gorgeous and smeel good Australia :

How warm is the digital scrapbooking world, when drama and jealousy are off. It will be a huge kit, for the moment, we have :

171 papers
12 clusters
7 quickpages
1 psd template
1 CU template pack
306 elements:
20 journaling/tags
23 leaves/trees
35 misc items
23 ribbons/stitches
7 pieces of tape
16 wordart/titles
37 assorted animals
4 banners/arrows
2 bikes
10 bows
44 flowers
28 frames
15 gears
24 pieces of hardware (buttons/clips etc)
18 hearts
and an alpha + several MyMemories albums

and it is not finished : we have till 31 th of march to collaborate !!!! If you are designer and want to take part too, it is still time : ask to subscribe to :

Waiting the moment of it will be sold, as kits and bundles, you could have a good heart to visit Kerrie stores and blogs
