And now…… something by ME!
Doodle Borders~ Set 1

GS_DoodleBorders_set1.jpg

Here is a super cute way to frame your LO- Hand drawn Doodle Borders!

I remember when I used to “paper” scrapbook. I loved to draw doodles around the edges of my pages. Now you can do it on your digital pages! With my hand doodled border frames.

Another great use for these doodles is as frames. When you have the perfect photo one of the first things you do is find a frame to show it off. Well the same is true in digi scrapping. These adorable Doodle Borders will be the finishing touch for all your photos. Use them as is to frame, or layer behind other frames as a base to create beautiful clusters.

Doodle Borders~Set 1 includes 7 doodles borders.
12 by 12inches- The perfect size to just drag and drop onto your LO. But a simple re-size to fit around any square photo.
300 dpi and in png form- they will work in any photo editing program.

Here are two examples - and there ia also a great one up in Kathy’s Doggie Word Art above.

Preview Description Service by Teri

GS_ttomj_dps-01.jpg

In Real Estate is Location, Location, Location, but in the Digi Scrap world, its all about your descriptions. Let me write your descriptions for you for your Scrapbooking Kits. I have years of experience in advertising and have a fast turnaround, usually within 24 hours upon receiving your kit preview. All you need to do after purchasing this service, is email me with your invoice number and a picture of your kit. I will in turn, write you a description and send it back to you as quick as possible. I always end the description with “Name of Kit” includes: ( you can add your contents here when I send the description back to you) If you do not want to list contents, simply delete this last sentence. Here is what some of the designers that have used my description service are saying:

“I don”t know how she does it…. but in a matter of a few sentences Teri has me wanting to buy my own kits! She will take a look at the preview and create the perfect paragraph to describe my products. I can take that description and use it in the store description, on my blog, facebook, even twitter a line or two…. promoting it in every way possible. She can not only help you with product descriptions but also any event advertising tid bit, call or contest. Anything you need written- with style, whit, and wonderful creativity, Teri is you gal! You will not be disappointed.” Ginger Looper owner/designer of GingerScraps

“Teri’s descriptions are catchy and fun and I think bring a curiosity to the kit that I could never capture in my own product descriptions. Her service is one that I have used over and over again and will continue to do so as long as she provides it. Tabby Butler of Scrapberry Designs

“As a designer and a store owner, Teri’s description service has been a tremendous asset for me. It has allowed me to focus on designing and leave the details to her. She is not only professional, but very timely and I would recommend her services.” Babette of LBCreations – Designs by Babette
