WLS Blog Hop

Oh what a fun time of the year. This happens to be my favorite time. All Hallows Eve 2013 is when my hubby did our handfasting and November 1st will celebrate 1 year happily married. I have been truly blessed and with that said, its time for you to be blessed as well with lots of fun Goodies.

Over at With Love Studio, we created a fun Blog/FB hop for everyone with the theme ‘A Grimm Tale’. With lots of fun parts. Mine was inspired by those cool girls of Monster High and Ever After High! Hope you enjoy!

Colorspiration

I find that I have a lot of photos that I just find beautiful with all the fun colors in them. When I am looking for color palettes to use for my kits, I don’t always find what I am looking for with what is out there. So I look through pictures for inspiration. So I started making my own. So each week I will share with you my weekly ‘Colorspiration’ from various photos I either capture or find on the internet! Some of these will have pictures, some may not because its something I might have in my home.

Funday Monday – Tutorial – Splicing a Signature

Have you ever wondered how you make your forum signature linked to your blog, Pinterest or Facebook? As Designers, having our signatures linked to our stores are great, but sometimes it’s hard to get everything lined up so you can get everything nice and neat. I have tried many tutorials on how to do this, but always had some issues. Well, that all changed today when I found a tutorial on how to use the ‘Splice Tool’ in Photoshop. Now the site I found was kind of confusing http://www.ehow.com/how_5883239_slice-photoshop.html – so let me show you how I did it.

Step 1: Open your signature file and click on the arrow next to the ‘Crop tool’ and select the ‘Slice Tool’

Step 2: Using the ‘Select tool’ Select the first section you want to cut out – for me it is my blog
setting each section

Step 3: In order to keep everything lined up correctly, using the ‘Slice tool’ go to the top right corner of the piece you just sliced and slice out your next section. Continue this for as many slices as you need.

Step 4: Once you have your signature all sliced up (hehe)_ you will want to save for web.

Step 5: Create a folder – ‘Signature Slices’

Step 6: Once you have saved the file, go to your Windows Explorer and check out the folder ‘Signature Slices’. There you will see another folder called ‘Images’ and there you will find each of your slices as individual files. I would recommend renaming for what ever they were sliced for – ex. Blog, Facebook, store.. etc.

Unfortunately, this website won’t show everything next to each other, so I apologize for that but you can see what I mean for each piece.
