Clockwork Angel tutorials!

Maggie with the Aussie Scap CT has been a busy girl, playing with my new Clockwork Angel taggers kit. She's done not one, but two tutorials using the kit!


The first one is called Clockwork Dream, and you can find the tutorial at Magsnificant Tuts.


The second is animated and is called Bates Motel. You can try that one HERE.

Awesome work! Thanks so much Mags!

Another Sneak Peek

The blue screen of death came to visit my computer Thursday night and while I lucked out and go it to boot up Friday morning, it had all sorts of disk errors and demanded a reformat. So...I was able to recover some stuff - quite a bit actually - the important stuff, you know. But I'm going to have to reinstall all my graphics files, which is a pain in the butt (not to mention hard work).

Anyway...this was a kit I'd started working on a while ago and kind of put it to the side because I didn't want to do the extractions. However, needing a break from installing files and or zipping up and loading kits to TKO - I've joined team TKO as a designer - I did the extractions. And since I'd puchased quite a bit of vintage stuff recently, I was able to find what I needed to finish off the kit.

It's called Clockwork Angel - it's a Steampunk kit - and it will be in Maybe tomorrow.

Steampunk,Vintage,Gothic,Sky Scraps,Decades

Once again, I am using the absolutely fabulous poser work of Marie at Sky Scraps. It was - in fact - her poser work that inspired me to do the kit.

Gothic,Steampunk,Decades,Vintage,Sky Scraps

To a certain extent, I hate the kit because it's so dark. Element by element, it just doesn't seem to work. When you combine them however, the results are simply stunning.

Keith Garvey,Gothic,Steampunk,Vintage,Decades

This third tag uses one of the new Keith Garvey tubes, which is, in itself, stunning. Anyway, look for this in my stores soon. And who knows, maybe you can catch a bargin and snag it at either my April 1st Snap Sale (selected kits will be available for $1.00 - which is most of the inventory) or at one of the upcoming weekend Easter sales!

Now in stores: Hot Crossed Bun

Hot Crossed Bun preview

Poor little Bunnie...a Gothic Easter was not what she had in mind. What happened to spring? And flowers? And little lambie-kins? And why oh why is that rabbit grinning so evilly at her?

Oh well, best to enjoy what's on hand.

This adorable kit is perfect for the budget minded Goth. 12 (800 x 800, .jpg) and 70 .png elements including two bunnie cookies by Sinful Mindz.

You will also find 5 bows, 5 Easter grasses, 5 egg chains, 5 eggs, 5 flowers, 5 frames, 5 fuzzlees, 3 dead bushes, 3 tags, 2 chocolate bunnies, 2 chocolate eggs, 2 crosses, 2 eggcellence, 2 mystic blings, 2 skulls, 1 barbed wire, 1 candelabra, 1 crow, 1 crystal ball, 1 dragonfly, 1 Easter cauldron, 1 evil rabbit, 1 Gothic arch, 1 metal border, and 1 ravens cluster.

300 DPI, Personal use only!

New from Digicats (& Dogs): Acapulco Bunny!

Acapulco Bunny

You think being an Easter Bunny is an easy job? Believe me, it's not.

First you have to dye all those eggs. Then you have to pack them up - with chocolate - into baskets and haul them all over the world. And because some fat man in a sled set the standard, you have to do it all in one night.

And what kind of help do you get? A couple of half brained chicks and that's it.

No sir, being an Easter Bunny is hard work, and when Easter is all over, you're quite ready for a vacation. And what place better than Acapulco?

Sun, surf, sand...30 (800 x 800, .png) papers and 124 .jpg elements to commemorate it all with. You are getting 10 frames, 10 orchids, 5 Acapulco gold, 5 beach bunnies, 5 beach towels, 5 bows, 5 eggs, 5 flip flops, 5 flowers, 5 jelly beans, 5 peeps, 5 ribbons, 5 shells, 5 sunchains, 5 surfboards, 5 tags, 5 umbrellas, 4 palm trees, beach bags, 3 clouds, 3 ivy, 2 beach balls, 2 deck chairs, 1 acoustic guitar, 1 coconut, 1 grass, 1 jeep, 1 maracas, 1 post card, 1 pyramid, 1 sand, 1 seagull, 1 sun, 1 tree nuts, and 1 set of waves.

300 DPI. Personal use only.

So what the bun are you waiting for? Grab your suntan lotion and let's hit the beach!

Get Acapulco Bunny at these fine stores:

Tuts & Tags

Still catching up on my backlog....


Linda at Tagcatz has written a new tutoial using my Freedom Rings taggers kit. She made the comment that she wishes she could find a Canadian Themed kit as nicely done, so I guess I'll have to work on that now. LOL.

You can find the tutorial at

Visit Tagcatz on the web
Tagcatz Blinkie


Still catching up on things...this was a tag, no tute that I did using Jessica's Lucky taggers kit. It's one of the new tubes from Garv! :)

Spring Love

One of the freebies Jess offered at J4T on Freebie Fridays was her April Showers taggers kit. If you're expecting Gothic from "Gothic Inspirations" this is NOT the kit to check out. LOL.

The Carmen Keys tube was one of the freebies we got from MPT for Christmas.

Sneak Peek! Acapulco Bunny!

This should be available...soon. 30 papers, 124 elements and taggers size only (of course).

New Releases

Ishona made the comment on the Scrappetizing designers list that she'd been very bad about updating her blog. I have to join her in the bad bloggers corner, as I have a ton of stuff to catch up on.

Let's start with the new releases shall we?

Freedom's Ring

Freedom's Ring

I was feeling rather patriotic and wanted to do something in red, white and blue. That's the great thing about America, you don't need a season or a holiday to go out and wave a flag if you feel like it. No one is going to stop you if you want to put on some Sousa and march around your yard.

So 30 wonderfully brilliant red, white and BOOM papers (800 x 800, .jgp) and 128 elements including two gorgeous Patriotic posers by ©Sinful Mindz.

Liberate your tags with these 10 frames, 10 tags, 10 bling flowers, 9 tulips, 5 bows, 5 curled ribbons, 5 doodle gems, 5 fireworks, 5 garlands, 5 knot bows, 5 ribbons, 5 rockets, 5 word arts, 4 balloons, 4 eagles, 4 flairs, 2 brackets, 2 city scapes, 2 flag bows, 2 flag doodles, 2 heart doodles, 2 shield doodles, 2 sparklers, 2 Uncle Sam's Hat, 1 bunting, 1 butterfly bling, 1 fan, 1 fireworks & stars rope, 1 flag brad, 1 flag button, 1 flag ribbon, 1 flag streamer, 1 hat, 1 Liberty Bell, 1 medal, 1 post card, 1 star spill, and 1 stars on a chain.

300 DPI. Personal use only.

Wild Hunt

The Wild Hunt

The Wild Hunt is an ancient folk myth prevalent across Northern, Western and Central Europe. The fundamental premise in all instances is the same: a phantasmal group of huntsmen with the accouterments of hunting, horses, hounds, etc., in mad pursuit across the skies or along the ground, or just above it.

The hunters may be the dead, or of the fairies. The hunter may be an unidentified lost soul, a deity or spirit of either gender, or may be a historical or legendary figure like Dietrich of Berne, the Danish king Valdemar Atterdag, Woden, or Arawn.

It's been one of my favorite myths for a long time, so given the chance I chose it as the topic of my new Gothic Inspirations kit, as we tackle the Celtic (and Welsh) lands of the dead.

You can unleash the hounds of hell for yourself with this beautiful Gothic themed Celtic kit. 20 (800 x 800, .jpg) paper and 110 elements including 3 "Rudolph" posers from ©Perfect Posers.

You're also getting 10 frames, 8 bows, 8 ribbons, 5 Celtic bronze, 4 candles, 4 curled ribbon, 4 flowers, 4 horned skulls, 4 mesh backdrops, 4 mushrooms, 4 tags, 4 trees, 3 apples, 3 rainbows, 3 rings, 3 standing stones, 3 vines, 2 brooch, 2 clover bouquet, 2 dragonfly charms, 2 fog, 2 gargoyles, 2 heraldic shields, 2 horses, 2 lightning, 2 moons, 2 mystic bling, 1 beaded river, 1 Book of Kells, 1 book of the dead, 1 brazier, 1 butterfly bling, 1 butterfly, 1 Cauldron of Dagda, 1 charm, 1 crow, 1 gem, 1 glitter doodle, 1 gold coins, 1 hell hound, 1 horseshoe, 1 potion bottle, 1 shamrock, 1 skull dagger, 1 sword, and 1 throne.

Mind the call of Arawn's horn and join us for the Wild Hunt!

300 DPI. Personal use only.

Both kits are available at:

A Spring Garden

A Spring Garden

A Spring Garden is all about showers and flowers, from the thunders storms of early March, to the gentle breezes and fragrant blooms of May. And to finish it all off, just a hint of fairy goodness.

You are getting 20 "weather" papers (800 x 800, .jpg) and 110 Elements. Step into the garden and you'll find 10 frames, 10 ribbons, 5 bows, 5 flowers, 5 tags, 5 watercolor flowers, 4 butterflies, 4 storm clouds, 3 daisies, 3 painted trees, 3 peonies, 3 rainbows, 3 tools, 2 blue jays, 2 ducks, 2 garden aprons, 2 garden gloves, 2 hanging drops, 2 ivy, 2 lightning, 2 rain curtains, 2 spring grass, 2 whimsical clouds, 1 archway, 1 birdbath, 1 birdhouse, 1 daisies cluster, 1 diamond rain, 1 garden hose, 1 garden snake, 1 gazebo, 1 lamp, 1 mailbox, 1 old wagon, 1 pansies, 1 park bench, 1 rake, 1 seed pack, 1 shovel, 1 sparkles, 1 spring ivy, 1 sun, 1 trellis, 1 umbrella, 1 watering can, 1 wishing well, and 4 "Pony" posers by ©Perfect Posers (

Sneak Peek - Freedom's Ring

I got into this patriotic mood - I just love these posers that Sinful Mindz did - and so I decided to do a nice little patriotic kit, even though it's not really "that" time of the year. May - yeah sure - with Armed Forces Day and Memorial Day but...

Lots of fireworks, a good bit of bling - I even tubed the Liberty Bell and put in there. LOL!

Freedom's Ring 3

Then this morning, Istopped by MPT and picked up from 4th of July tubes to play with. Okay, okay...I got some bunny tubes too. Maybe I'll even do a tutorial or two with the bunny tubes.

So...yeah...coming soon. Maybe even before tomorrow's St. Patrick's Day block party. :)

Tag, you're it!

The spring breakers in Fort Myers were treated to a lot of liquid sunshine yesterday. We all were, for that matter.

For a while it looked more like we had a hurricane coming in than anything.

Spring Break

Remember if you can't get to the beach, you can still ENJOY the beach with my new Spring Break taggers kit.

Rainy Season

Perhaps more appropriate for the March weather is my Rainy Season kit. One of my friends made the comment that it never looks this nice when it rains by them. On the whole, it doesn't look this nice when it rains here either, at least - not until we get our summer thunder storms and you get the really dramatic skies going.

This is also great kit if you love fairy tags - or just fantasy in general.

Seasons in the Mist

Equally pleasing for fantasy lover is my Seasons in the Mist kit. This is pure fantasy with castles in the clouds, fairy ladders, rainbows and flower blooms. Perfect for spring, and you can even leave the rain out, if you wish.

Angels Among Us

Lisa of Sophisticated Scraps and Imaging is well known in the tubing community for her fabulous Cookie poser creations. But she's equally good with her non-cookie creations as well, as you can from this beautiful tag which as created using my Dark Angel taggers kit.

I've never been a big fan of ballet - that was always my sister's thing, not mine - but I have to say that the ballerina angel is exquisite! You can still grab a freebie sampler of this kit at Scrapper's Secret but I'm leaving that store, so if you don't grab it now, you won't be able to get it later. My last day for selling there is March 16th.

Boopsy Gras

Mardi Gras is over - except at Universal Studios - but you can still enjoy the fun and pageantry of carnival with my Mardi Gras taggers kit. There are 10 gorgeous masks in this kit for you to play with, plus beads and three of the adorable Betty Boop cookie posers by (c)Perfect Posers.

A Spring Garden

All these kits are available at all my stores. One you won't find anywhere else though is my Spring Garden taggers kit. You can only find that one at Just4Taggers. Currently it's part of the monthly Just4Taggers, but I believe it will become available as a single kit on or around March 15th.

This is another fantasy themed kit and that includes beautiful Peggy and Penny Pony posers from (c)Perfect Posers. I thought the centaurs were a bit unusual, and I hope that you will enjoy creating with them.

Monday - I will also have a special freebie for you, so be sure to stop by and and grab it. It's a brand new St. Patrick's Day themed kit - just a bit of Irish Gold for your pot!

Irish Gold
