About Me

I delved into the world of computer graphics about 12 years ago, and have been hooked ever since. I've been creating tags for about 11 years, writing tutorials for 5 and creating scrap kits for 3. In addition to designing scrap kits, I also participate in Renaissance Faires, and perform in various venues featuring Middle- Eastern dance.

I am always happy when people try my tutorials and use my templates and other goodies. Feel free to use the goodies in other tutorials, just tell them where you got it and provide link to my blog. Please be respectful. Do not claim them as your own or alter the credits. Do not use the tags made from my tutorials for monetary gain or to promote hate and violence. Anything else you'd like to do with the tags created from the tuts. . .have fun! If you are a group owner and would like to text link to my tutorials for challenges, please feel free to do so.

PostHeaderIcon Tag Templates Zipped!

I've had people asking for awhile now, to zip up all my tag templates. . . I finally did!  You can find them over to the left under Zipped Tag Templates.  I didn't zip them all into one folder, but divided then by 50.  Still, 4 downloads are better than 199!  Enjoy!  :-)

PostHeaderIcon New Tutorial Site/Blog!

I've been wanting to organize my tuts for quite some time being with all of the tube stores opening and closing, and also because I have some tuts that use scrap kits from some designers that no longer sell their kits.  It's going to take awhile since I have about 300 tuts, but it will eventually all get done!  I've moved some tuts to my new tut blog already, and I have changed the links to where you can now purchase that artist's work.  I will not be including the tuts where the scrap kits/supplies are no longer available however. . . I am still debating on whether I should keep my google tut site open or not as an "archive". . . we will see.  Anyway, please check out and bookmark my new tut blog Gina's Gems Tutorials.  It looks fabulous thanks to the lovely Laura, who is indeed very talented!  She will also be revamping this blog and my CT blog gallery.  I can't wait!  I just know she will do an awesome job!   If you would like to beautify your blog, please check out her Dream Blog Customizations!  You will be ecstatic you did. . . I know I am!!  :-)
