mainly health-related, but I want to get back to it.
So here is what I have been busy with:
See you soon.

Jingle All The Way

Well, here it is almost Christmas
and I have done nothing to get ready.
NOTHING

And it's a new Customer Challenge over at
And I made a little something for you
to get you in the holiday mood!

This was so easy to make!
It's digital, but
you can do the same thing with
paper by printing the collage sheets 
and papers out and cutting them
and layering them.

I cropped the image I wanted from the
Snow Much Fun Jewel Sheet
The background is black paper
Over that I put a paper from the
Victorian Christmas paper pak
Then over that I put a paper from the
Merry and Bright paper pak
On top is the cropped Snow Much Fun image
The sentiment is from the
Christmas Dreams craft kit.

DONE!

You can do that!


There are so many fun Christmas-themed
Collage Sheet Sets, papers, digital stamps
as well as the Christmas Dreams Digital Craft kit
in the 

Gecko Galz Etsy shop

Make sure you enter our
Customer Challenge this month.
And the only rule for you to enter is
that you use at least one
Gecko Galz item.

That couldn't be any easier!

You can find all the deets Here
including the news that
you can Win a $25.00 Gecko Galz shopping spree!
Just in time to begin you Christmas projects!

Plus there are some
gorgeous Design Team samples
that you will
be inspired to create something wonderful!

I'll see you over there, right?
(And don't forget, you have
until the end of the month to
play along!

Vampy Witches

Is "Vampy" a word?
Spellcheck doesn't think so.
But take a look at these sexy witches from the
Gecko Galz Pretty Witches Collage Sheet!


Pretty vampy, eh?

In addition to the Pretty Witches Collage Sheet,
 I used background papers from the
Coven paper pak,
icons from the Arsenic and Old Lace craft kit and
wordart from the 
Witchy Words collage sheet set.

And these are all available

Very simple process to make these,
the same process I use to make
pretty much all of my
Gecko Galz samples:

I crop the image I want and mask it.
Place it and any icons I want over top of the background paper.
Add wordart.
Add a border overlay.
Done!

If you do digital,
you know how easy this is.

BUT, remember, my little
Gecko Galz pretties,
you can print any of the Gecko Galz products out very easily
and put them together with glue and scissors.

Have you made your entry for this month's
customer challenge yet?


All the deets are here.


And don't forget, on October 26th,
our Annual Halloween bloghop begins!

So it's a busy Gecko Galz month, 
with tons of Gecko Galz fun.



Get your witch on, friends!

Can you?
Well, if you feel you can't be ritzy,

surely you can make a piece of 
Ritzy art

I made these to hopefully help get your
creative juices flowing:

I used the Charming Words Collage Sheet, 
Ooh La La Collage Sheet, 
and a paper from the High Society Paper Pak


For this second one, I used the
Charming Words Collage Sheet Set, Sparkle and Shine Collage Sheet, 
and paper from the Gatsby Paper Pak

and finally:


for this last one, I used the
 In Other Words Collage Sheet Set, Shall We Dance Collage Sheet, 
and a paper from the C'est La Vie Paper Pak

My pieces are all digital and I used
Photoshop Elements as my photo-editing software.

BUT REMEMBER!
you can easily print out whatever
pieces you need, print them, cut them out, glue them
together and embellish to your heart's desire!

BINGO!!

Do you have your piece done yet for this month's 
Beach Blanket Bingo Challenge?

There is only one rule, and that is you need to use at least ONE  product from Gecko Galz!!  
It can be one of the free products, stamps, collage images, or digital papers!!  It is up to you!!
The winner will receive a $25 Gecko Galz Shopping Spree!!

Wouldn't that be awesome to win?!?!


I made a few samples for this month:

They are all very different, even though 
I used the
Seaside Splendour digital Stamp Set for all three.

Sample #1 uses:
  Beachy Keen Paper Pak as the background paper
as well as a Bingo card from 
the A Stitch in Time Collage Sheet Set
Sample #2 also uses the
 Beachy Keen Paper Pak as the background paper
and
The Seaside Splendour Digital Stamp Set.
The only difference with this one is that I added
a blank layer between the background paper and the digital stamp and painted where I wanted
additional colours.
I changed the blend of the stamp to Multiply and that made the
white background disappear, and
the image itself transparent.

This last sample uses a 
paper from the Country Stitches paper pak
that I added the letters for BINGO to
as my background, and again,
a digital stamp from the
Seaside Splendour Digital Stamp Set.

And then I completed it with a sentiment from
the In Other Words digital stamp set.

If you have visited me before, you already know that
my digital projects are always about layering.

And you know that I pretty much finish my products with some
kind of a border from my massive
digital stash.
(and I do mean massive,
It's embarrassing)

I take a gorgeous Gecko Galz paper
from the oodles of choices in the
I add a cropped image from any of the
gorgeous Gecko Galz Collage Sheets,
oodles of which are also in the

We ohly have about a week left for you to link up your 
project with the
so if you haven't already,
GET BUSY!!

And we will see you there!

Beach Blanket Bingo

Hi all,
It's August already!
How did that happen?
Humphf.
Since we only have about 2 months of summer here, 
I cry a little every day in August.
lol
BUT, it IS a new month at
and that means a new
Customer Challenge!
There is only one rule, and that is you need to use at least ONE  product from Gecko Galz!!  
It can be one of the free products, stamps, collage images, or digital papers!!  It is up to you!!

I made something to get your creative juices flowing...

The Gecko Galz Product I used for this are:

Vintage Summer collage sheets
Scripted Wordart Collage sheets and 
the Altered Artifacts Collage sheet
(which may have been a freebie, 
but there are sheets with 
Bingo cards on them in the shop.)

Everything in my sample is layered, as always.
I rarely step out of my digital box these days,
I always follow the same process for my samples.
Crop the image and wordart you like.
Place it over as many layered papers as you like.
Add your choice of embellies, borders and the like.
And you are DONE!

Remember, you can find all of these fun products at
