Our birthday “Pop Quiz #4” featured a $150.00 gift certificate from Colorvale™ and envi photoshop actions. We invited Stacie Jensen from Colorvale™ to do a guest / vendor post and tell everyone a little bit more about her company and products. She even let us know about an amazing “freebie” that is getting killer reviews – you can see more about it at the download link below!

Why purchase Photoshop Actions from Colorvale™?

The answer to this is very important. Because we are backed by well over 13 years of Photoshop experience. Stacie’s background in Photoshop extended back when Photoshop was in its infancy. Stacie’s graphic design & photography have been published nationally in magazines. Your edits are in the hands of a professional who knows Photoshop inside and out!

Happy 2nd birthday to Paperie Boutique!
Visit PaperieBirthday.com for all events!
paperie 2nd birthday
Winner announcements started on Monday, July 25th…



The title from the last giveaway (#31) is the French translation of “My Way” – I thought the lyrics quite appropriate for what turned out to be an 8-day event! I also have a special connection to the song. It is one of my first memories as a child, and I could not have been more than 4 years old at the time. I remember walking up to the counter at TG&Y with a 45-record of the song, and plopping down my ‘hard-earned’ allowance on the counter. I felt so big and so proud at the time, and now it just makes me giggle (as I’m sure my family did watching me). No Bay City Rollers for me! Even at an early age, it seems I always overshot my mark and did it “my way“! But now that I’ve lost 75% of my audience with Sinatra, Bay City Rollers, TG&Y, and 45-record references…before you can all run off to Google to figure out what in the world I’m rambling on about after a week of sleep-deprivation…I’ll just say, “And now, the end is near“…and we’ll move on to the fun stuff! PRIZES!

In a week that’s seen over $8200 in prizes donated (that averages out to over $1000 / day!), you didn’t think we’d go out any other way than with a “BANG!“, did you? In our final giveaway – #32 – one lucky Paperie reader will win a prize pack from WHCC, HB Photo Packaging, and Kaleidoscope!

WHCC float wrap giveaway Paperie Boutique
WHCC float wrap giveaway Paperie Boutique
WHCC float wrap giveaway Paperie Boutique

WHCC Float Wraps are a new, unique option to display images. Float Wraps are similar to Gallery Wraps or Standout mounted prints in that they add dimension by extending out from the wall. Float wraps are unique in that they appear to be floating on the wall with the main focus on the image! Create a modern display with a Float Wrap wall collage that is ready to hang once removed from the box!”

Included in this prize pack is a 16×20 float wrap with laminate in your choice of lustre or metallic photographic paper, or as a fine art or metallic canvas.

HB Photo Packaging birthday giveaway Paperie Boutique

Also included in this prize pack is a “Boudoir Collection” sampler by HB Photo Packaging. (I recently featured the “Boudoir Collection” products in the June 2011 issue of Professional Photographer Magazine.) You will receive five large “Eco Totes” in black, ten small “Eco Totes” in black, five 8×10 boxes in “Razzle Berry“, five 5×7 boxes in “Razzle Berry“, five 8×10 boxes in “Black Velvet“, five 5×7 boxes in “Black Velvet“, ten 8×10 tissue folds in “(hot) pink”, ten 5×7 tissue folds in “(hot) pink” and “polka dot”, three rolls of “Bella Terra” paper ribbon (Black, Beauty, and Zebra), a “Hot Pink Tiger” ribbon sample, and ten assorted black “stretch bows“.

And last but certainly not least…

Presenting a vendor / guest post and giveaway from Patti Brown Photography, LLC and Kaleidoscope. Up for grabs are FIVE $100 gift cards!

I’m so pleased to announce the arrival of Kaleidoscope‘s two newest digital darlings: “Imagine” & “Eternal“. Each is a mini-texture set, designed with color, glow, movement, grit…and of course, the quality & artistic flair that all Kaleidoscope products are known for! Like all of my products, each texture set is fully compatible with all versions of Photoshop – including Elements. “Imagine” & “Eternal” have been receiving RAVE reviews, and truly have the ability to take your pictures to places that actions alone simply cannot! Check out the amazing Before & After’s in the slideshow found here.

However, the very best part of my latest digital lovelies, is their teeny tiny price! Each set is just $29, bundled together for a limited time for just $49. And, through July 14th, with the coupon code paperie you can get an additional 25% off of your entire cart!

For a quick video demo, click here. (Demo is in CS.) For a fun tutorial on how I achieved the “Angel Glow” method mentioned in Elements, click here.

Today is jam-packed full of “pretty” and creativity! First up, we have a guest / vendor post and giveaway from Vintage U Creations. And don’t miss the color-inspiration discussion at the end of this post!

Vintage U Creations

Looking for some goodies to add to your prop collection? Here they are! Vintage U Creations is your one stop shop for photography needs! From vintage inspired headbands, to camera necklaces, actions, tutorials and more you won’t be disappointed while browsing through this site. This darling little shop was started by Shannon, a fellow photographer herself. She wanted to add some fun to her sessions with some cute headbands, they were a big hit!

vintage delight

Each piece is hand crafted and made with love. The headbands are SUPER stretchy, so instead of buying the same headband in different sizes, you can save you money and get a variety with one headband and use it for a newborn and adult!

Molly

Every headband is different, each one has it’s only style so it fits the needs of every customer.

Purple Love

That’s not all Vintage U Creations offers… Want to be the envy of all your photographer friends? Then you need to pick up one of these “Vintage Camera Necklaces” with your choice of center gem in red, purple, soft pink, and clear.

purple camera necklace

We love these necklaces SO much that one lucky reader is going to win their very own camera necklace with choice of center gem!

So what do you need to do to win?? Head over to the Vintage U Creations shop at vintageucreations.bigcartel.com and comment here which piece in the shop is your favorite.

Then for a second chance to win “like” Vintage U Creations on Facebook – tell them that Paperie Boutique sent you – and then come back here and let us know you did so.

Each entry requires its own separate comment. (In simple terms: If you want TWO chances to win, you have to do both things listed above, and then make two separate comments here telling us how you did them.)

Comment(s) must be posted here by 11:59 p.m. EST on Friday, March 18th. You can enter up to two times total. Post that you have met both requirements in separate comments to have multiple chances to win!

You can enter / post twice – one entry each for the options listed above. (PLEASE NOTE: Comments are held for moderation and may not appear immediately. Please be patient! They will show up eventually.)

You have two chances to win, but only one chance PER OPTION – please do not post the same link multiple times. Duplicate links will be removed. Each entry requires its own separate comment to have multiple chances to win!

One of the hardest parts about deciding what ‘branding’ look you are going for is picking out a color scheme.

I recently ran across a site colorschemedesigner.com that will help you do just that with ease.

color scheme
First you select a color from the color wheel and then it will show you similar coordinating colors.

colorscheme compliment
Here I’ve selected another color from the wheel, and clicked the compliment tab – it will add in additional color families that go together well.

colorscheme compliment web light
colorscheme compliment web dark
You can also view your color schemes (another complimenting set shown above) how they would look together on a webpage – in both light and dark combinations.

colorscheme analogic web light
Web page demos are also offered in light (and dark) when more than one color group is selected. You just have to play around with all the dials and have fun!

color palette
The Colors Palette Generator allows you to upload any image and view a color palette based on the image’s primary colors. I uploaded one of my recent photos as an example. It even gives you the hex # to duplicate colors in web designs.

Similar color generators of note:
1. kuler.adobe.com
2. colorhunter.com
3. colorcombos.com

These color sites would work great in conjunction with “inspiration boards” on Pinterest to design an entire brand and web presence around the things (and colors schemes) you love!

Quick reminder – you have until 11:59 p.m. EDT tonight to win a maternity session ensemble from TAoPaN.

If you are a photographer and are interested in having your packaging featured – or are a vendor and are interested in having your business packaging, marketing ideas, or photography-related products featured – please contact robyn @ this domain to be added to the posting schedule.
