Default WARNING -- Using this action is addicting!!!

Did my warning get your attention? Well, it seems my fellow designer Manu of Manu Scraps said I needed to start adding it to the description of my newest CU product - Paper Flower Action. I thought she was just being nice until I actually released it and saw the reaction.

My Paper Flower Action will help you turn your 12x12 paper into a rosette or accordion flower. To get you started, I've included 3 templates to use. Currently, this version only works in PSCS. I just finished the PSE version and it's currently in testing. Hopefully, it will be released within the next day or two.

This action will be on sale for 40% off thru March 5th. Check out the preview below along with some examples from the people who have become paper flower addicts.



Manu's flower


Robyn's flower


Kaye's flower


Kaye even made a cluster freebie for this month's Color Challenge using some of the flowers she made using this action ... click on the image for her links.

Jill, you definitely grabbed my attention!!!
Thanks for pointing out that the current action you have for sale does NOT work in PSE. I am glad I did not buy it right away...although I am still tempted, but l need to listen and heed your warning that I will not be able to use it. So glad you are working on the PSE version!!!!!!

It's here!!! And you have Kaye and Manda to thank for this ... their help in getting this done was invaluable because I know nothing about PSE. I would also like to acknowledge Steph for her help with the documentation.

SO ... drum roll please ... if you have PSE, here is your version -- http://bit.ly/1jTcyVQ. This will be 40% off through March 8th. I've also extended the sale price for the PSCS version thru March 8th.



btw -- I would LOVE to see your flowers, so be sure to add them to either this thread or even upload them to my gallery here at theStudio -- http://www.digitalscrapbookingstudio...-of-bytes.html.

yay well I spent half an hour this morning playing with these, I even made the paper for them and what is good you don't have to be an expert BG maker, believe me I know I don't really know how to make BG papers properly, so I just threw some things together and the flowers come up so well!!

Default Re: WARNING -- Using this action is addicting!!!

I completely ruined a good saucepan while I was playing with this action. Try scraping about an inch of burnt stewed plums off the bottom of a pan!!! I put it on and became so involved with the action, that I completely forgot about it. I didn't even smell anything until my husband came in and wanted to know what was burning!

Do I get compensation for that Jill??
