I'm a CT now!

I figured I haven't tried being CT. So I did this- I googled "CT call" and picked the best designer from the first page of the results. That is, the designer who's work I liked most. I answered the call, and thought- If she didn't choose me, I'll apply to someone else.

AND SHE DID CHOOSE ME!

I'm now a proud CT member for



I'm thinking of starting another blog to show off my layouts made of hers and my own kits... :)

Here's the first LO I made for Emily using her splendid "Country French" kit:

CU brush bundle


This brush pack consists of 3 brush packs available here, at the store, but at a special price.

Pack 1: Ivana 001 Spring brushes
This brush pack contains: -12 different PNG files - 1 ABR file that contains 13 different brushes The brushes have been tested and work in Photoshop CS3 and CS4. They are all 2500px and smaller (see preview for sizes), so they should work in earlier versions, too. I have made some cute doodle flower brushes, and some elegant ones. You can make great spring romantic frames, or use them for overlays or whatever you imagine! Additionally, I have created a raindrop brush that randomly changes roundness and size, so it's great for achieving that "raindrops on my window" look.These brushes are for commercial and personal use.
Pack 2: Ivana 002 Glitter Brushes
Here are some brushes I hope all designers will find usefull. They instantly make glitter in Photoshop! In this pack, you will find: - 1 color swatch - 1 ABR file with 4 brushes - Instructions This color swatch is here to help you get the idea how the brushes work. Use them to fill out or stroke any path. The possibilities are endless! These brushes and swatch have been tested in Photoshop CS3 but should work in other CS versions as well. *** COMMERCIAL USE OK ***

Pack 3: Rozeta brushes

You can always find use for good, quality brushes! Especially when they're as big as they get AND allowed for commercial use! These ornamental, mostly circular brushes can make your scrap elements and layouts really stand out. The best thing is that you don't have much work with them- just apply a layer style and you have a nice, elegant element. Or use them as patterns and create wonderful backgrounds and overlays! This pack contains and ABR file with 10 brushes. 9 of them are 2500px, and one is 1113px wider side.There are also PNG files for Paintshop Pro users. Brushes have been tested in Photoshops CS and CS4 and Photoshop Elements 6.

My new blog layout!!!

I worked very hard and long and now it's finally finished! I have a new blog layout!! I used some flash for the first time and am very satisfied. I have a good feeling about it. I made everything myself, even the flash animation.

To celebrate, I have a nice free minikit for you!!!




Tolerance minikit

5 wordart elements
1 frame
8 other elements- flowers, hearts, dove, olive branch, piano keys

and 6 pretty good papers.
Everything is full size, 300dpi.


All elements and papers symbolize peace; race, religion and other equality and are inspired with graffitti art and hippy movement.
I really put my heart and soul into making this kit and hope you will enjoy it.
I also hope you will share your layouts and other work with me, I would love to see them.

Have fun!!!

My interview :)

We asked Ivana some questions to get to know her, and here is what she said...



Where are you from, and where in the world do you call home?
I am from Belgrade, the capital of Serbia. This is my favorite city in the world and will always be my home.

What program do you use to do your Digiscrapping?
Mostly Photoshop CS4. Sometimes PSP, sometimes Illustrator, I'm not picky when I want to get the job done.

How long have you been DigiScrapping?
For 2 years.

Do you have any other hobbies besides DigiScrapping?
I don't have much time for other hobbies, but I'm very interested in html coding, web design etc. and am trying to learn more about these.

What is your most favorite day of the year?
My son's birthday, April 26.

What's your all time favorite song?
Really difficult question to ask a radio lover. :) Let's say: "Sound of Silence" by Simon & Garfunkel and of course "Moondance" by Van Morrison. :)

What is your favorite scrapping style and or technique (framing, extractions, scripts, elements, doodles…etc..)?
I like doodles and casual style. I don't like using scripts or actions, I prefer doing things by myself from scratch.

Name your favorite movie or TV Show and why
I'll tell you a secret: I'm a huuuuge fan of Star Trek, mostly The New Generation. Yes, you have a Trekkie in your store! LOL!!!
I like science fiction and fantasy very much and the idea of all peoples of the Earth united in search of knowledge and exploring the space... and so on and so forth... :)

Any favorite music style?
Classic rock

What is your favorite junk food and why?
OMG... All of them... LOL... Big Mac, need I explain??

What can’t you live without?
My family, music, watermelons... :)))

Do you have a Favorite Vacation Spot?
Anywhere in Greece.

What motivates you everyday?
In my lifetime, I have survived two awful and meaningless wars, poverty, sanctions, hatred and a ton of personal tragedies. Finally, life seems better, for my people, for my husband and me. We have peace, a house, jobs, a beautiful boy and hopefully more kids some day. Freedom, love, family. These are the most important things.

New CU actions for Photoshop



This is a bundle of Photoshop actions that make curled edges out of a 12x12 inch paper.
They are similar, but different, check the previews. Each of them costs $4.00, so you will save a lot if you buy this bundle!
All you have to do is press play, select a paper and enjoy!
The final result is a curled edge on a separate layer from the paper, so it can be easily used in a layout.
These actions were tested and work in Photoshop CS2 and CS3 and CS4. It is OK to use for personal and commercial use.

You can call me Audrey! :)

I have an almost-finished-new blog layout for my blog. It has much more space in the sidebars and I can't wait to upload it. However, I have so much work and other stuff happening, I simply don't have the time to work on it. :( When it's finally finished, I will have a nice place for my awards! I seem to be getting a lot of them lately and all from the people whose work I truly admire, so the awards mean a lot!

I got this one from Elsina of EMSarts.




Let me tell you a bit about her. She lives in a kibuc in Israel, has a full time job, FOUR daughters, and she manages to find the time for designing such beautiful scrapkits and elements, AND design 3D models. I often wonder are there any superpowers involved here LOL... THANK YOU, ELSINA!!!

I am forwarding this award to my CT, Beba. She is taking her first steps in becoming a scrapbooking artist, but is amazing when it comes to making layouts! I hope she'll find the energy and time and start selling her own stuff soon! Go,Beba!!!
