More updates-2 revised translations and an Easter Tag translation

I've redone two scrap tag tutorials, from Marian's PSP-Lessen, that were removed a few months ago while Marian rewrote them. Past and Faith . Past has been slightly rewritten and Faith only had to have the frame tube removed from the supplies (the small frame around the woman's face-see example), for which you'll have to choose one yourself to replace it.
Here are small examples, Past on the left and Faith on the right:

I've also translated a beautiful and sweet Easter tutorial from Jet, of Jetje's PSP Creaties, called Celebrate Easter.
Here's a small example:

Isn't it just gorgeous! I haven't done the stationery and wallpaper to match this one yet.
What I'm going to try and get done today is separate the holiday and seasonal tutorials out into separate index pages, so you can find all of the Easter tuts together, Valentine, Winter, Autumn, etc. Have a wonderful day everyone!

Update - 2 new translated tutorials-note about synching software

I've got 2 new translations done from Violette at Violettegraphics.
A beautiful frame tut called Cadre Valentin and a gorgeous blend tag called Amour Toujours. Here are small examples:

I hope you like them! I haven't done the matching stationery and wallpaper yet, I hope to get that done in the next day or two. Hubby's home on vacation next week so I'm not sure how much I'll get done.
I've been having major computer problems. I started smelling really strong burning plastic a few days ago so frantically started burning things off on DVD's, like my website. Then it started shutting itself down, with no word of warning. John got it going again and I would back up more stuff and it would shut down again. Finally I convinced him that yes, you can fix the power supply yourself. So he did! He said the only thing he's never fixed on a computer yet is the motherboard, and I told him he may find out this week how to do that too, depending on if any damage was done to the motherboard during this little adventure. So wish me luck! It's been a rough winter trying to get things done for my site, between my surgery, lack of energy and now computer problems. Thank goodness I lost no data though. Yet.I'd been procrastinating about setting up a backup program, but there's nothing like the feeling of OMG, I'm going to lose everything to kick you in the bum about getting that done. I bought a 500 gig external hard drive (at half price!) and started backing up everything. I actually found out I didn't need a backup program as much as I needed a synching program. So I found AllSync and I love it. After the first batch of backing up the original folders, it now backs up 270 gigs of my data every night in 20 minutes! All it does is look for changed, deleted or added folders and files and it mirrors the original folder exactly, leaving the unchanged files alone. What a great program. Have a great night everyone!

Update-new tutorial, desktop calendar

I have a new tag tutorial, a scrap tag called To Love . . .
Here's a small example

This tutorial can be done in any graphics program, including PSP, PhotoImpact, Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, any version.
I didn't make the matching stationery or wallpaper yet as I wanted to get the tutorial uploaded for Valentine Day, it's this Friday already! I'll be working on the stationery and wallpaper and get it up soon. I'll announce it here when I have it ready. I also put one more desktop calendar up. I'm still working on my Valentine and Love & Romance stationery and wallpaper pages and I'm adding what I've done as I go along. I've written two more tutorials, one for Fiesta Strip stationery and one for Stacked Border stationery, but don't have them ready to upload yet. Soon, I promise!
Hugs, Ellie

February Desktop Calendars, new Translated Tutorial, new stationery and desktop wallpaper

Hi everyone. I'm having a little bit of problems in my recovery from surgery but I'm back in gear and hopefully can start bringing you new stuff regularly again. And I have new stuff for you today! Desktop calendars, a new translated tutorial, stationery and wallpaper!
I have 2 desktop calendars ready for you for February. The previews can be used as mini calendars as well. Hopefully I'll have some blinkie calendars and scrap calendars for March when the time comes, I'm getting into the swing of things slowly.
For the tutorial translation, I translated Scrap Valentina created by Violettegraphic. I also created matching stationery and desktop wallpaper, both with a Valentine theme and without so you can use it all month if you like.
Example of the new tutorial:

New Stationery New Wallpaper
I'm revamping my Love & Romance stationery page as the page itself is old and the stationery on it is old, and they're not converted to OE yet, so I'm refreshing the look of the stationery and page as well. I'm working on that right now and hope to have it done today or tomorrow. I hope to be back within a few days with more stuff!
Have a great week.

New stationery and desktop wallpaper

Here's an update I forgot to post at the time so I'm doing it now. . . . Surprise everyone! Did you think I got lost? I was just about done recovering from surgery when I came down with a nasty head and chest cold. I still have it but getting better. I want to thank everyone for the hundreds of emails enquiring about my health. It's so nice to know that you guys missed me and worried about me.I thought I'd get my feet wet by doing someone else's tutorial. I love Carolaine and Sensibility tutorials so I did one of theirs. New stationery, Always be my Valentine, and 3 new wallpaper to match.
Here are some small examples, first one is the stationery, next two are the wallpaper, there's also one more wallpaper with "My Desktop" in gold script on it.

New Stationery New Wallpaper
I hope to do a translation this week. Hopefully I'll continue to recover and can keep updating my site. Sorry for the long absence. I did get a lot of reading done! LOL I hope you're having a great weekend!
