CoffeeShop "Mother & Me Mini Session" 5x7 Photographer Template!


I just realized Mother's Day is around the corner, so I wanted to get out my newest photographer mini session template. This one is 5x7 and can be fully customized and printed or posted on the web. It also comes with full commercial rights!

You can change most of the fonts and the background color, or even add a pretty digital paper. I really love the effect of The "Mommy & Me Mini" text under the image.

The gorgeous family image in my example above is from Jill Wellington (Etsy ShopFacebook, Blog, YouTube Videos).

I am finishing up two new actions and they will be coming out in the next several days!!!

CoffeeShop "Soccer Ball" Professional Storyboard Template!!!


Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend!

I had a reader request for a soccer ball storyboard, so here it is! This one is 12x12 (print or web) and a layered psd file so you can add your images using clipping masks (tutorial and free action). You can keep the shadows on the black areas of the ball or turn the shading off. You can also change the background color (or leave it transparent) and make the board bigger, just do this before adding your images.

Like all of my storyboards, you can use this personally or commercially as long as you don't sell the storyboard "as-is" without any changes. I want to keep this blank storyboard free.

I have never seen a soccer ball template like this one out there, and I hope you enjoy using it.
I am going to make a series of sports-themed storyboards and other digital design papers and share them with you here. If you have a request for any type of custom storyboard or other digital design, please leave a comment here on my blog. If I think it is something that would be fun for my readers, I will design it and post it as a free download here. Think of it as a way of helping me out AND getting a free custom-designed storyboard!!!

Images used in this post from Pixabay (soccer ball, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6).

{Friday Photo Bliss}

On Fridays I like to post snapshots of our week that make me happy.


My oldest joined the Civil Air Patrol as a cadet and was just promoted to Airman! If you have a 12-18 year old who loves learning leadership and studying aerospace and medical rescue services they should check out this volunteer organization. It is amazing!


My dad taught Duke how to drive his ATV on his 25 acre plot.


And his brother and I held on for dear life!


Visiting with cousins.


Painting with cousins.


And the excitement of seeing a large pileated woodpecker just off our front porch! She made 6 giant holes in that pine tree in just a minute or so until she got scared off. Well, scared off by me because I had to try to get closer to her to take her photo.

Have a great Easter weekend!!!

CoffeeShop "Spring Flowers" Vintage Digital Paper Pack!


Today I have a brand new spring-inspired vintage digital paper pack. This one contains five high-resolution papers that you can use in any of your digital or paper designs, for print, or post on the web. These would also be lovely on Facebook covers or greeting cards.

I have written a really fun little Photoshop/PSE action that automatically lets you create Photoshop patterns like the ones I used on this paper. I will post the action this week along with a step-by-step tutorial. This action makes it so easy to make your own gorgeous patterns for custom digital papers and other designs.

I used some beautiful design elements from The Graphics Fairy Premium Member Site to create this digital paper pack.  I am an instructor over there and I love all of the gorgeous design elements at  (affiliate link followsThe Graphics Fairy. Check out their beautiful design elements, very informative Photoshop/PSE Tutorials, and incredibly generous commercial terms of use.

You can change the background color from white or add any pretty texture or digital paper and then print and frame or post on the web!
