I came across this place called PhotoFiddle that sells photos printed on canvas, art prints from your photos. What's neat about it is that you use their software for free to create the great effects such as PopArt, Stitched, Collage, Sepia, etc. Then their prices for prints on canvas are really decent.
They are currently having a special $20 off on a 18"x18" gallery wrapped canvas for $74.95. Use promo code 1818.
Check these guys out if you are in the market for canvas prints. The digital scrapbookers might not take advantage of Photofiddle's software but wouldn't a digi layout look great blown up to 18x18 on your wall and printed on stretched gallery wrapped canvas? Yep.
As part of Kim Hill's design team, we were again this year able to offer FREE Calender Toppers that are perfect for Shutterfly or other calendars.
This year the set has even more options, as we have not put the names of the months on the pages and also included extra toppers for alternate climates, countries, and religious choices.
What would you do with these? Use Photoshop Elements or any other imaging program to add your own pictures underneath the free .png Quickpages and then upload them to Shutterfly and order a custom calendar. Shutterfly even lets you add your family's special days to the calendar grid of each month.

Its that time of year when all good digital scrapbookers go into a panic of last minute card, calendar and gift planning.
Storebought cards? Feh! Not good enough for us crafty souls who feel we must outshine all with pictures of our beautiful families on custom made Christmas Photo Cards. We might lose our membership in the Digi club if we didn't!
Well, folks, first of all take a deep breath and think about what the holidays really mean. For me they are a beautiful "down time" where I get to do some nice things for my kids, see fancy light shows, and light some ceremonial Hanukkah candles.
I didn't do cards at all last year. I made gorgeous photo calendars for my family through Shutterfly and let the card thing go. The year before last however, I did a really cute "Christmakkah" card which I ordered through VistaPrint. VistaPrint has great prices on photo cards. I recommend them for price and speed of printing.
Its very easy to do custom photo cards with Photoshop Elements and great templates and elements from Scrapbook stores such as Kim Hill's CG Essentials and Scrapbook-Elements stores.
Here is the link for Kim's Holiday Card templates:
Shutterfly is having a site wide sale. Here are some of the offers they currently have going. I am excited about the buy 1 get the rest 1/2 off calendars as I make digi scrapped calendars for my family each year.
I've been really remiss on my digital scrapping lately. I've been doing some knitting, but not had any "mojo" for scrapping since the dreaded computer got hit by lightning incident totally messed up my stash of wonderful discrap goodies.
Fortunately, I am still hanging by a thread on Kim Hill's team and she hasn't kicked me to the curb yet. I love working with her products and I can feel my creative juices coming back up! Which is good because fall is coming and there are all sorts of great projects to work on from Halloween invitations to presents for the family.
Here is a very simple layout I made last night using her ArtBin Solids Neutral Paper and the ever popular Printer's Block Alpha.
