Printable Spooky Photo Mat 1

I just made these like 5 mins ago, I crumpled a 6" x 4" piece of black card stock, rounded the corners with my EK Sucess 1/4" punch, and faux distressed all of the cracks and edges on it with Staz On Ink (cotton white). So instead of having to go through all the motions of making it yourself (it's very messy lol), I thought, I'm going to scan this to share with others as a free printable. Click on image to view original size, then right click & save to your computer:) Enjoy, Its free and NOT copyright but if used in your minis please let ppl know where you got it from by copying the link below :) Blessed Halloween/Samhain Everyone xo
I made more in various colors after scanning it into my pc by changing the colors using an image editing program. scroll down...

Baby_Boy_Blocks Scut

I made this using Baby Blocks font to cut on my cricut using Scal. Two of my baby minis are 6" x 6" so these measure just under that when cut out and glued down. all blocks are the same size :)

Baby_Footprints_x3 Scut

I'm making several baby mini albums and made these files for them, so thought I'd share for anyone looking for the same thing :) The footprints were NOT created by me, I just simply opened scal and placed 3 on an 8 1/2" x 11" sheet of cardstock to cut them out, it saves time as I have 3 sons and I'm scrapbooking all 3 of them at once.

Changing Photoshop brushes into Paint Shop Pro Brushes


Ok so I have hundreds of photoshop brushes that I want to be able to use in PSP9 (Paint Shop Pro9), (since I own the full version of PSP9 and don't own a full version of Photoshop :). So I googled a question that thankfully had already been asked & answered and learned how to Change Photoshop brushes into Paint Shop Pro Brushes. Heres my research...

Question: Will Photoshop brushes work on Paint Shop Pro?

Answer: Yes and no. You can not import a Photoshop brush directly into Paint Shop Pro, but there is a way around it, though it involves a lot of work.

Download ABR VIEWER ( and install it.

Changing Photoshop brushes into Paint Shop Pro Brushes

Open a .abr brush into it (that's a Photoshop Brush) and Export as thumbnails. Open those thumbnails (now .png images) into Paint Shop Pro and, on each one, go to File > Export > Custom Brush. Save each one as a differant name.

And there you go! You have Photoshop brushes that work in Paint Shop Pro!
