I hope you’ll hop through all the blogs and see their favorite products, and pick up your code to get this huge pack of journaling cards for free!

Click here to pick them up in the store. But remember, if you want them free, hop along the CT blogs and collect (in order) the coupon code. Enter that at checkout and voila! free kit.

Here are 4 of my favorite products from the designers at Pixels and Company:


I didn’t pick any full kits, because these are go to items that match with other kits I may be using on a layout. Confession time, I may or may not have a slightly irrational fear of items falling off my digital page. So stitches are my friend and help keep everything where it’s supposed to be. I love shadow styles and have 3 or 4 sets, but the ones I keep coming back to and use over and over are the ones from Gennifer Bursett. The other two kits are perfect for adding that finishing touch on a layout,the frames work on almost any layout and the tags are just the right size to add a date or shore description for a photo or event.

Now what you’re really here for, here is the first letter in the coupon code:


Now hop over to Kat and see her faves and pick up your next letter. Remember, collect all the letters in order to create a phrase. That phrase is your coupon code. Enter it in the box at checkout.

At DHD we really know how to throw a party!
Today tutorial is part of my process of saving my layouts. I have a rather involved process for saving my layouts, but I recorded it all into an action and now all I have to do is push one button and everything is done for me.
The biggest secret to my whole process are the scripts from Speed Scraps
I use: 
Delete Non-Visible
Supply Tracker
File Save 1 
After you download and unzip these scripts take note of where you have them saved, you’ll need this to make your action. 
The other script that is a huge help is Copy Close.
This script will take all our open PNG and JPEG files and add them as layers to your PSD document. While it is copying them into the PSD it is also naming the layers, it copies the filename of eachPNG or JPG and uses that as the layer name. This is really helpful for tracking your credits. 
I’ll continue this tutorial in another post so you can get hopping on the blog hop, but make sure to check back so you can create your own saving action.
Your instruction for the layout challenge: 2 or more lines of journaling
