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! You have spent tons in gear, choked down a ton of learning and now you need to invest in what will help you save time & product quality products to your clients each and every time!

There is nothing more annoying than uploading your amazing photos onto Facebook just to see them compressed and pixelated. The dimensions for a perfect Facebook photo are always changing but we are trying to keep up with this crazy social world. After many tests these seem to be a beautiful size to use.

Colorvale™ is here to make your editing effortless & save you time!

Actions Included:

•  Perfectly resize for best Facebook quality. Use with Portrait
   or Landscape photos

•  Ultimate Web Sharpening – your photos will look beautifully
   sharp every time

•  Clean white 5 px border for professional matting

•  Action to quickly save your image as PNG before uploading
   to Facebook

•  This action does NOT harm the layers of your edited image
   or resize the original. It will make a duplicate file before
   making the necessary changes for Facebook quality.

Compatible With: Photoshop CS3 & above and Elements 8 & above

Thanks Stacie and Colorvale™—we’re so excited to have you with us here on Paperie! Please follow them on Facebook and Twitter (@ColorvaleEdits)!

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.

Photo Card Boutique is back again for a vendor / guest post and giveaway!

Photo Card Boutique

But first… Recently I was given the opportunity to try out a few of the templates, and a Buttons and Bows client just selected the “Cooper Baby Boy” design as their birth announcement. Here’s the front and back as submitted to ProDPI. (Last names were blurred out for privacy reasons.)

The images below show the finished product. The templates were so easy to tweak and customize. (You can see I changed the back up somewhat from the original and made it a 3-photo design.) Changing colors and inserting images was a breeze with the multiple layers. Font information was also included so any alterations could remain true to the original.

Today’s guest post is the best kind – pretty with benefits! One of my favorite vendors, Terry from Sassy Designs, Ltd., has dropped back by with Valentine’s Goodies for everyone.

sassy designs freebie preview

Hi, Everyone! It’s me – Terry from Sassy Designs, Ltd.! Robyn is such a gracious host and offered to have me back a second time! Again, I am honored!

I’ve got some big plans for Sassy Designs, Ltd. in 2010 so I hope all of you will keep up with me! I’ve been so busy that I’m closing up my Etsy shop and focusing my time on my main website shop and of course doing custom orders. Until the Etsy shop is empty everything there is discounted 25% so be sure to check it out before it’s all gone!

The shop at the main website is stocked full – digital papers, design elements, card templates, and has a bunch of new things that have been added over the last few months! I’ve been working on some fun things for Valentine’s Day and as a thank you to Robyn and all of you fabulous readers I’m offering the two newest items to you for free! I hope you do fabulous things with them!

sassy designs freebie preview

Thank you so much, Terry! When you make good use of these
freebies please leave a note in the comments and share with the class so we can all see. (You can take a peek at how I made good use of Sassy Designs background papers and a frame element in my holiday gift tags.)

More new guest post features are currently in the works! If you’re interested in having your own business packaging, marketing ideas, or photography-related products featured please contact me (my e-mail is in the sidebar and is robyn @ this domain – or you can leave a comment).
