Rienekes Designs- Just Remember the Memories- CT Tag Results

I used a beautiful kit by Rieneke, but then again they are all ALL beautiful and so easy to work with. I love Rienekes kits as they push me to create something magical at least in my opinion LOL. The kit I used was Just Remember the Memories and it has soooooooooooooooooooo much potential. I didn't even begin to scratch the surface with this beautiful kit. I did play with many of the beautiful elements and just felt good to get back into PSP and create... I hope that you like my results Rieneke.. Thank you for yet another beautiful kit....

Rieneke Designs- The Message is Love- CT Results





This time I got to work with another beautiful kit from Rieneke Designs and this one is called "Love is the Message" which you can buy HERE at her personal store! The tube is by the talented Pinuptoons which is this months bonus tube at CDO if you spend more than ten dollars after any discounts the store will send you this beautiful tube.

This kit has so many possibilities and has 70 elements and 15 gorgeous papers- which makes it very easy to use... I hope you enjoy the kit as much as I do! I do hope that you like your new tag Rieneke.

So Much...

I have been MIA in so many of my groups and CT's and it has been kind of bumming me out that I haven't been as creative as I normally am. I have been having so many flare ups due to my lupus and my fibro that I've just been so out of the loop... I just wish I could make my pain go away because I miss my online escape..I NEED MY ONLINE ESCAPE as real life is complete chaos at times. I am really hoping that I can find my MOJO again.... Just need a few lil' prayers sent my way- If ya have time...

My Disclosure

My tutorials are just that- Mine.In other words I really don't want them on other sites or translated. If you would like to share my tutorial then please do just that by sharing the link to my blog or a link straight to the tutorial. At the time I write the tutorial I use the artists website at the time as well as the kit designers link at the time and it would take quite some time to go back and edit all of my tutorials and posts to reflect all changes that happen. So if by chance you cant find something or a link I provided has gone bad please contact me and I will do my best to help! I write tutorials in hopes that others will use them as a guide and send me their results so I can also post others results to show people other samples other than my own. All tutorials are written by me and any resemblance is purely coincidental. I write my tutorials in PSP 9 but they should work with other versions as well. Not all tutorials are for beginners but all levels of creators are encouraged to try working on the following tutorials!!! Have fun... and be copyright safe!!!!
