CT Tags Ending July, 2013

First & foremost, I apologise for my blog being a bit 
'jacked-up' atm from my Photobucket account.
I have a Tag Request Group & had to link some animated
 tags in messages to send to those who 
had requested them, since FB wasn't sending them correctly
 & my guess is that someone(s) hot-linked their 
tag(s) to my account thus causing the mess over there. --->
So I hope you bear with this blog until my account resets...
which I hope will be in the next day or so...
Let's pray for the best. ;)
Anyhow, I have a few awesome tags to show 
off from my uber-talented Creative Team to end this month.
The first tag I have to show you comes
from Belinda, using my City Chic kit:
You can find her stellar tutorial here on her blog.

I also have this beautiful tag from Amisha,
using my W.L.S.T.D. kit:
She also made this cool frame for you:
Grab it from her blog, here.
* Make sure to leave a lil' lovin' for the frame.;)

Kelly made me this gorgeous tag with
my Summer Lovin' kit:
And last, but not least...
First of all, I would like to officially welcome 
the lovely & also talented Robyne Butts to my CT.
It is a pleasure to have her aboard with all my other
stellar Ladies! =)

And here's a tag & she made with my Gang Starr kit:
She also made me this FB cover:
...And she also has this rockin' frame for you:
So hop over & check out the tutorial & grab the frame
from her here on her blog.
* Leave her lovin' when snagging the frame. ;)

Thank you, Ladies for these awesome tags!!
You all never cease to amaze me. =)

Make sure to stop by their blogs
& see what else they have for you.
Maybe give them a follow, too. =)

Thank you for looking.

FTU CU-Okay 'Full Sized' Box Template

I normally do not make full-sized CU stuff.
Typically, if I'm making a tagger's kit &
I think of something I can't find or
it simply hasn't been made yet, I will
attempt to make the item myself
& I have been sharing them with those who 
can find use for the item as well.
About a week or 2 ago I had posted my 
CU Box Template that I had made for my 
Kurious Kitty kit.
I had posted it in a couple groups on Facebook
& I was asked if I make anything full sized.
Well, no I usually don't, but since 
Shannon liked the template & she 
makes full sized kits, I re-made
the template for her & for anyone else
who would like to have a full sized version 
of the original box.=)
As with the original, you can modify it to make it 
a kitty/ doggie or even a cereal box for you kits. 
I really hope this is useful to you. =)
Unlike the other template, the zipfile for this one
doesn't come with a sample box, since dummy me 
closed it out in my PSP program when making this 
preview without saving it. 

This template is 1750 px in height 
& was created at 300 dpi.

You can get the template here:

Have fun with it. =)

PTU Now FTU- Bedtime Stories

This is another kit I had pulled from my stores 
a few months ago with the intention to make 
it FTU... I just never really got a chance to get it 
posted on my blog. BUT! Finally, I'm getting it posted 
for you all to enjoy. =)


The only update to this kit is the tiara element.
I had to replace this element because the Designer 
of the original tiara I had in the kit when it was PTU
doesn't allow her CU items in free kits. 

So, if you had bought this kit in the past, 
you don't have to download this kit,
unless you want the other tiara, too. ;)

With that being said, I hope you all enjoy this kit
& it sparks some inspiration for some wonderful tags. =)
You can grab the kit here:
Bedtime Stories

As always, I love to see your creations
made with any of my kits.
You can send them to me at:
MagikD[@]live.com
(Make sure to remove the brackets around the @ sign.)

Have fun with the kit! =)

Notice- I'm No Longer In Mischief Scrapz

I just wanted to give you all a head's up that 
I'm no longer in the Mischief Scrapz store.

I'm not trying to cause drama or anything,
since I honestly don't know much about the store,
the owners, etc. BUT! the store has been in 
maintenance mode for over 2 weeks now & I 
honestly have no idea what's going on. =/

I have removed all my items from the ftp there 
& tried to delete my products at the store.
However, since it's in maintenance mode,
I'm not able to remove them. >.<

So, I just wanted to alert you all NOT to
buy my kits there. You will waste money trying
& I sincerely would hate for that to happen. =/
If I can manage a way to get my stuff deleted,
I will be doing so, but right now that's not happening. 

I do want to thank the people at Mischief Scrapz
for allowing me to be there. I didn't really know them,
but I wish them all nothing but the best &
hope whatever issue they have at the store
that they can get it resolved.

Thank you for reading. =)

trying to get motivated to write a tutorial

add names, brushes or elements, etc. to these tags. 
Simply click to view full size then save to your computer.

FTU- CU-Okay Music Heart Paper Template

I have another- yes another!- CU freebie for you. =)
Instead of giving you another set of frames 
(btw I do have 2 more. lol), I thought I'd
give you a paper template instead.;)
I made this paper when I made my W.L.S.T.D. kit
& thought maybe I should keep it as a template:
Hopefully this paper will work well with a lot of
your rocker/ punk or goth kits. =)

You can find the download here:

Have fun with the template!
I hope you enjoy using it. =)

FTU CU-Okay Circle Frames

I know there's been a lot of frames made like these. lol
And just to be clear, I'm not saying mine
are any better.;)
However, I made these so that the narrow part 
of the circle frame is a bit wider to allow adding
a glass effect without the glass effect looking not 
so good on that thin side. ;)
I have tried using a glass effect on a few frames 
I'd obtained over the past couple years & that narrow side 
is just too narrow to add a glass effect,
so these frames are for just for that purpose. ;)
The zipfile contains 1 PSD template with 
shaded & unshaded layers.
There is also 4 additional glass layers
on the template for more customization. ;)
I also included another PSD file that has 
6 coloured frames in different gradients
& also the 4 glass layers to use in your kits.
You can download the file here:
CU Circle Frames
I hope you enjoy these frames & can make good use of them. =)
