Bird N Bees Kit and a vent

Morning folks,

Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July holiday! I know my children and I enjoyed ours. This was the first year I have had them all home for the 4th in a few years. We even went to the local street fair and my daughter got to see the "rednecks" After three years in the big city of Palm Beach, FL it was an treat for her.

Before I show you my newest kit and give you the freebie, I do have a little vent to share. I post this as a warning to all the designers, CT's, ect...that are joining stores to sale their products or make LO's.
As some of you may have noticed I left a store where I was selling my kits. The reason for this was because the store owner kept changing our contract and insisted on everyone participating in sales anytime she wanted to have one. The major change in the contract that disturbed me was the fact that she decided to start paying us every other week instead of every Sunday as stated in our contract. The sales became a problem for me when she decided to run a sale that lasted 11 days. That's not a sale in my book....two or three days is a sale...and when a product only cost $1.50 to start with you will not make any profit after paying store fees and PayPal fees. I was making about 50cents off of $1.50 items during her sales.

I keep my kits and products priced low and make little profit after everyone takes their little piece of my So the choice of having a sale longer than 2-3 days should be left to the designer, right?

So, I left this particular store and more than two weeks later now I am still waiting to be paid for the products that were sold the last two weeks my products were in her store. Even according to her "two week" pay period that was forced on us, my payment should have been sent on Sunday, July 6th. After an exchange of emails this morning, I can see I will be lucky to ever receive my money from this store.

So everyone be weary when joining stores. Dishonest store owners can easily not report sales to you and keep your money. They can easily not pay you if they decide not to. And they can steal your products. KNOW the owner before you sign that contract. You can bet your last dollar that I won't sign any contracts with any other stores before checking out the owner again.

Okay, vent over, lesson learned, and I feel a little

So how about a new kit and a freebie?

New PSP Scripts and New Sig Tag Tutorials

Hey folks,

I've put in some long hours the last few weeks, so I decided to take a break yesterday and finish up some tutorials that I had began working on. I also finished putting together a new PSP script for some buttons and revamped the PSP resizing script.

The scripts can be found in all of my stores. Just pick your favorite from the sidebar.

You will see two different PSP resizing scripts below. There is a difference in them so be sure you order the one that will fit your needs better.

The 300dpi scripts are designed for those that need smaller kits to work with, but want to print their projects. This size kit is ideal for card makers, candy wrapper makers, or others who make smaller projects. Word of warning...these are not appropriate for sig tag makers who use PSP tubes from the PTU companies without changing them to 72dpi.

This script pack includes four scripts that will resize a full size scrappers kit into a taggers kit
without losing the clarity and crispness of the ori…
