  • New Flower Maker Actions & Templates are here!! (FREEBIES, too!!)

    I’m super excited to announce that the Photoshop Flower Maker Actions and Flower Maker Templates are now available in the Digital Designer Resources store! (Coming to other stores later in the week.)

    Stacked Flower Maker Action Set #02 Stacked Flower Maker Action Set #03

    These Actions create SIX 4-inch layered flowers using 5 colors of your choice (plus black and white), then give you the option of automatically saving to the folder of your choice or adding your own textures, styling, etc. to the individual flower layers. Actions have been tested in CS3, CS5 & CS6. At this point they do not work in Photoshop Elements, but I promise, I’m working on fixing that, too!

    For those of you who cannot use Photoshop Actions, the Stacked Flower Templates Sets allow you to still create these pretty little flowers in other software programs.

    Template files include PSD, PSPimage & PNG template layers. Shadows are on separate layers in the PSP and PNG templates. Any shadows that extend beyond the edges of the flowers have been trimmed, so shadows show only on lower layers, not on the background.

    Ok…so if you are like me, you aren’t going to take some stranger’s word for the fact that these actions and templates work, so I am offering you a test drive in the form of a couple CU freebies: A Photoshop Flower Maker Action Freebie and, for non-PS users, the matching Template Set. Click the image below to download the set that fits your needs. Actions and templates make ONE 4-inch flower with 10 layers (shadow layers are separate, but not counted in this tally) using 5 colors of your choice, plus black and white.

    I hope you enjoy the freebies and stop by to grab a couple Actions or Templates in the store. Let me know how the work for you, especially if you are using a different version of Photoshop for the Action or are using the templates in another program. I would love to have the feedback!

  • NEW IN STORES! Paper Maker Action Sets (CU Freebie Alert)

    Calling all Digital Scrapbook Designers:

    Is it just me, or do you ever find yourself behind the 8-ball and needing papers to finish out a kit or a freebie like 5 minutes ago? Well, out of my necessity, I have come up with two new actions that might help you put an end to this dilemma!!! Each action uses 5 colors of your choice to create 10 assorted, coordinated, patterned papers in mere moments. Run both actions (sold separately), mix up the order in which you input your colors, apply textures and overlays to each paper (before or after saving) and the possibilities are virtually endless.

This layered PSD backpack template will help you create a cute little backpack that will be a perfect addition to your PU kits. (Licensing is required if you intend to create CU kits or PSP scripts.

Fourteen layers plus a bonus texture layer will allow for complete customization. A sample clip art rendered from this template is also included in the download file: feel free to use this if it matches your color palette 🙂
