Tutorial | Custom Tab Images for your Facebook Fan Page

Hey friends!
Did you know that you can customize your Facebook Tab images on your fan pages? ? I just discovered this yesterday - but maybe I'm a little slow on this, lol!

To change them, hover over your active tab until you see the pencil to edit.

Click Edit Settings

Click Change after Custom Tab Settings.  You can Customize the Tab Name here if you’d like.

Click Change after Image

Now click browse and navigate to upload a new image that is 111x74 px and less than 5mb.


And that is how you get a custom tab for your Fan Page!


Now if you’ll excuse me, I should go look for a new photo for my page, lol!

Have a great day!

New Collab is Makin’ Me Happy!!

Do you know Cheri of Dream Big Designs?  She’s an awesome designer at Scrap Orchard & she’s an incredible cake decorator!  Well she emailed me a couple of weeks ago with an idea to do a CU collab together!


I loved putting this set together!  There are 5 textures in each set (provided in both full color and gray scale jpg files).  Our sets are packaged together for a discounted price – and you can save an extra 20% off this week!

You can also get each set individually if you prefer…

This next product might look familiar to you.  I had this divided into 3 packs during my last guest spot and I bundled it up into one amazing kit!  Makin’ Me Happy…

Here is some CT & Orchard Girl inspiration for you…

Celebrating 2,000 fans with YOU!

Who LOVES freebies??? Today I'm celebrating 2,000 + fans on my FB page! At the bottom of this post is a link for you  to get a FULL size freebie from me!

But while I have your attention (heehee), I do have a couple of awesome new products in my shop ♥

If you follow my FB Page, you may have seen me post about being up to my elbows in paint last week!  I had so much fun making this new brush set and I can’t believe how much I LOVE them!  I used them to make some papers for a future product and they are so easy to work with! As with all of my brush sets, both .abr & .png files are included.

Here is an up-close look at the brushes.  See how they have a bit of a chevron look to them?  These would be so fun to distress papers and elements with!  Add them to your stash at 20% off until 9/28/12.

These Worn Out Pieces 2 were previously at my guest store and now I’m moving them over to Scrap Orchard.  They have been very popular for both scrappers & designers. These pieces include a mask layer and an overlay layer and are SUPER easy to use.  Just clip your photo or paper to the mask and you’re done!

Here is some inspiration for you.. I love how Annisa used them to clip her paper too.

And Jan used it for this amazing photo!

I did mention a celebration earlier, right?  I am so excited, honored and awed that so many of you have supported me as Happy Scrap Girl Designs grows.  This week, I put it into perspective… 2,000+ wonderful people follow my work on Facebook! WOW.  And Thank You.  You have no idea how much it means to me.

So to give a little back and to thank you, I worked on a second brush set that is very different from the one above.  These Grunge Brushes are PERFECT for making your own shabby papers (no CU4CU please), adding some distressing or creating masks.  They are for scrappers and designers and can be used over and over and over again.  They are free to all of my Facebook Fans. So click on over to grab them!

♥ you guys!

Now if you are not already a FAN of Happy Scrap Girl Designs  - um.. WHAT are you waiting for (heehee!).  There are lots of great reasons to be a FAN! 

1.) Keep up on the latest products and sales

2.) Get access to FAN ONLY freebies!

3.) FAN ONLY coupons with great discounts or even FREE products!

Speaking of coupons and free products – you never know what kinds of shenanigans are going on today to celebrate ♥

OK, I’ve been very chatty today, lol so I’ll wrap it up.  Have a WONDERFUL weekend!!

Unique Accordion Paper Flowers | Text Path Blenders

Happy Friday everyone!

I hope you are having a great week!  My kids have started back to school this week.  I’m excited for them to be back into that routine, for all that they will learn this year and that they get to see their friends again.  I’m happy to have my routines back again too.  But my house is very quiet and I’m missing them and all of the fun we’ve had this summer.  It went by way too quickly, don’t you think?

I have a new set of Paper Pretties – and it may be my favorite thing I’ve designed – ever!  I love the cut out accordion flower – I’m certain you’ll see more of these from me in the future!  Aren’t they fun????  These were in my grab bag at my guest shop last month and now they are at the Orchard. 

Paper Pretties 10

I also have a new set of Text Path Blenders to move over to SO. 

Why should your photos have all the fun? Text Path Blenders allow you to easily blend your journaling right into your Digital Scrapbook layout! All you need to do is select the text and type your own words!!

Text Path Blenders 4 will help you blend your text into your digital scrapbook page using a non-destructive method. Parts of the text will appear to be faded or erased on your layout, but you can still go back and change the type whenever you would like. It's easy to make these more or less distressed based on your journaling needs.

And I’ve bundled a couple together for a great bargain…

Text Path Blenders Bundle 2

Next week I’m hoping to get back on schedule with new releases, freebies and tips! 

Have a great weekend!
