Watermelon and coming soon!

June is OVER???!!!  Where did the time go?  Today we start week 5 of the Got Talent contest!  Your challenge this week is to use red and green predominantly on your page and to punch holes in something.  It does NOT have to be a Christmas/Holiday theme.  I used the Simple Stories Good Day Sunshine Collection in the shop!

I cut out a heart from some reddish paper and then stitched around the outside with red thread.

The font that I cut with my Cameo is simply called "Hole".  As an afterthought, maybe I should have backed the title with some black paper instead?  Oh well, I still like it!

Be sure to stop by the forums to see all that is going on!  Check it out HERE.

********************Coming Soon**************

The following are coming to the store mid-to late July:

Pink Paislee Solstice

Crate Paper Notes & Things

Studio Calico Brighton Pier


We are exploring a potential new gallery through Flickr.  Read THIS POST on how to sign up and get started!  There is also an incentive for those who upload layouts and comments.

Today I want to show you how to upload your photos to a group:

1. Log into Flickr.  Once you log in, you will see an "UPLOAD" button at the top.

2.  On the next screen click "Choose Photos or Videos".  Select the images you want to upload. (PC users, did you know that you can select multiple images from your files by holding down the control key and clicking on the images you want?  Try it!)  Once you've done that your files will appear here.  Click on each layout.  On the left, you will see the title and a place to add any tags (for example, you can use the tags gottalent or junechallenge).  Your photos are now part of your PERSONAL PHOTOSTREAM.  Next you can upload them to a group if you'd like. You can always upload them to a group at a later date if you prefer.

3.  You MUST be a member of the My Scraps & More Group before you can upload to your page.  Click on the "Add to Groups" button in the left panel and then click which groups you want to add to. Once you've added it,the group will show up in the left column under the "groups" tab for that layout.  Repeat for each layout you want added to a group.

4.  When you are finished, click the blue "Upload" button in the top right and you are done!

Next week I will show you how to insert your image into a forum thread from Flickr.
