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!
