Learn a new trick! And get a freebie too!

Hi, everybody! I have no desire to be a designer, but I’m kind of frugal, and if I can do something myself instead of buy it, that makes me very happy. I have seen some papers around digi-land with raised, or embossed, patterns on them, and I figured out how to do this myself. It is not very complicated to do, and I’ve got a new tutorial just posted over in the Tutorial Forum on how you can do it too! So please head on over there and check it out!

My freebie is related to my tutorial, and here is the preview (and it gives you an idea of what YOU will be able to do after reading through my oh-so-simple tutorial):


I will leave this freebie up for 36 hours, so if it interests you, please grab it ASAP. It has been tested by the W&W CT girls in several versions of Photoshop and PSE. For PSE users who have never used layer styles, I included some very brief instructions on how to install the style to help get you started. It’s not a simple process in PSE, so you may have to search the web for help.

I have to warn you, you might get a little bit addicted to layer styles once you start playing with them … I have.¬† Enjoy the tutorial and your freebie!
