Room Page video - An Old Fashioned room

Another one of my rooms, if you have any questions either leave a comment or e-mail me at tgillespie67@gmail.com.  You need to put CM or something in the subject so I know it's a legit e-mail.
These are fun to do once you get the hang of it, so enjoy!

Window Arch Template

I have included a link at the bottom for the video instructions on how to do this.
If you have any questions please e-mail me at tgillespie67@gmail.com, (this is different than the one I have been giving out!)  I would love feedback on whether or not you like it.  If you e-mail me please put CM in the subject so I know it's a legitimate e-mail.
Enjoy it and have a great evening!
This is the link to the template if you want to use it!

This is a link to the video on how to do it!

Room Pages #1 - Large Shelves

I have had a lot of requests for instructions on how to do the rooms I have done in the past.  It's been a long time since I recorded or did this page so bear with me as I try to remember in the video.  Also, I said the wood grain you will see in the video came from a piece in Adobe Photoshop, it was actually the wood grain in the Digital Embellishments Elements package if you have it.
If you have any questions please leave a comment or e-mail me at tgillespie67@gmail.com, (this is a new e-mail address.)
I hope you enjoy it,

Video - Adding Freebies from CM Web Site and Bringing Them Into SBC and Managing It!

This video goes over the entire process of downloading and saving digi freebies from CM and saving them on your computer.  I then tell how to bring them into SBC and set up categories so you can then pull them up from your storybook just as you do your commercial papers and embellishments. 

Video - Cloning to remove something from a photo and spot coloring in SBC in a B & W or Sepia photo.

This is a video about using the cloning tool to remove unwanted items from photos and doing spot coloring;  Leaving 1 or 2 items in color while turning the rest of it B & W or sepia.  I do mine in SBC and that is where I will be demonstrating.

Video - Reflected Titles & Inserting Paper Into a Rubberstamped Photo Image

This video explains how to rubberstamp an image on a photo then insert into or fill it with paper. It also covers doing a reflected title, a fun thing to do with any title on a page with a reflection on water, or a sunset.

Sorry so long since I posted!

I have had major computer problems, I had a laptop die and a desktop become unusable the same day.  As if that wasn't bad enough, my external hard drive died the next day, fortunately I did not lose my hard drive.  The lesson I learned:  Have a backup for your backup, if I had lost my hard drive which contained my life, I would have had nothing since my backup died to. I am now using an encryped online backup service in additon to a new EHD, so for all you fellow scrappers who put so much time and work into their pages like I do, you might want to learn a lesson from what almost happened to me! 
I hope to have some new videos on here soon, I have ordered a new mic with the hopes the sound quality will be better than the previous ones as I've had complaints!
Have a great week everyone!

Thanks to all of you for the outstanding response to my blog and the templates I've put on here.  As those of you who follow me on FB may have heard me complain, I have had quite a few computer problems in these last few days.  My e-mail was hacked, then I got a computer virus, and although my computer is clean now I've had no time to blog or scrapbook and I have gotten very behind on my e-mail.  In addition to that I have been trying to reply to a couple of e-mails on here and my windows mail does not work either so please be patient with me if you have not received a response, I am not ignoring you, I just can't get through!  I will try to put another template on here as soon as I can, in the mean time please feel free to tell all your digi scrapping friends about my blog.
Have a wonderful evening!
