Halloween Candy Box

Today I created a Halloween Candy Box template that could be used with my Cricut machine.  Just another reason to use this wonderful machine that makes things so much easier and fun

HandPad for the iPad

I was so excited the other day to receive my bamboo stylus for the iPad. Even though it's not pressure sensitive I felt it would be fun to sketch with it.  As I was using it, I kept placing my hand down, and this would create lines on my page. So I came up with the idea of creating a pad I could lean my hand on so I could draw or write.  This is a quick tutorial of my idea!

Creating a Swatch Palette from a Photo with Photoshop CS5

Has there been times when you can't decide what colors to choose for your layouts?  You stare at your photo and a blank page and have no clue where to start. An easy way to get started is to use colors right from your photo


  1. Open up your image and go to image>duplicate
  2. You want to make sure you use a copy of your image and not the original
  3. This process will change the look of the photo once the colors have been extracted
