It's Commercial Use week here at The Nifty Pixel, so we'd love to share with you our latest CU packs which are not only ideal for all your designer needs but will work just as well for your personal use projects too!

The packs include some lovely textured overlays called TEXTURISE 'EM V.2. These linen and cloth textures would look fabulous blended into some floral patterns or solids for an added tactile feel and of course to emulate fabric . I also collated these old tickets from my ephemera collection called TICKET TO RIDE V.2 Each one is unique showing the front and under sides. How cool are these?! 
You can grab these CU goodies on sale at The Digichick for a whopping 30% the entire weekend.

This week we have released our latest Nifty PacksALL PRIMED UP V.2 | PAINTED KRAFT PAPER and CONTACT SHEETS V.2 | Photo Clipping Masks & Frames. There is nothing like a neutral background paper to add lots of delicious textures and brushes too. These painted kraft papers are perfect for just that. Our second set of Contact sheets are so much fun and are just the ticket for creating that realistic look of photography proof sheets. With an added editing brush of photographers marks you can create your very own proof sheet keeping those not so fantastic shots (you know those blurred over saturated ones), in the set for prosperity. Often those shots are priceless and I can't bring myself to delete them all so find using them this way is a nifty way to remember those bloopers.

I love how the nifty gals used these packs...each one a different style to show you how versatile our nifty packs are when paired with our kits or other designers kits! Check them out today and have a look at our other nifty packs we have plenty of them!

Time to grab yourself some bargains!
Check out our latest $2 Tuesday deals below for some hip pocket savings. This month we have a Christmas in July theme happening and included a template pack of Page Drafts, Digital Kit and an add-on pack of Vignette Impressions to this months selection.
OOOH & Look... our fabulous Nifty Gal Sanna Lippert has done another awesome tutorial for you, this time a Christmas inspired treat!

I know, I know it's only half way through the year but if you are like me the next few months will fly by and before you know it, it'll be too late to get those handmade cards created. That's why Sanna decided to share with you a fantastic tutorial on how to make a set quickly using digital kits in this case our Berry & Fawn christmas kit. I hope you find it as inspiring as I do and motivator to kick start your christmas card making before its too late, the clock is ticking remember!
Even though these cards are very easy and FAST to create they still have lots of layered effects and detail to make them really stand out. The best part since the layers are digital they aren't bulky in the mail allowing you to send them with regular postal fees...a total win win here!!!

So my first step was to choose a blue patterned paper from the Berry & Fawn digital kit as my starting point and then in my phot editing program I clustered and layered various digital elements from the kit and stacked some sentiments over each one. I don't do much measuring when creating, I just estimated enough space between each cluster (6 in total) so that when it came to cutting them after printing they would fit within the confines of the card bases.

After printing and cutting each hybrid sentiment I adhered them to the kraft card or white card bases. Now the fun part, dressing each card up. Some of the techniques I used were spritzing in and black or white ink, die cut some glittered stars and added them for extra dimension. I stapled twine to some or border punched some accents to create even more layers.

There are endless ways to spiffy up your cards some other nifty tips would include, adding dimensional magic to some elements giving them a glossy dimensional look. Paint Glimmer Glitter Glaze for sparkle or layer some fine tulle/ lace for an added tactile feel.  Just be mindful of not getting too chunky so you keep postage costs to the minimum.

This month is a busy one for me on the homefront so I thought I might just release some of those commercial use products I have been hoarding for far too long. Check out these two awesome packs of goodies... I know you'll have fun with these. 

VINTAGE PRICE TAGS are a pack of old gummed price points used before decimal currency. Each have some printing imperfections and slightly marked but these characteristics make them even more charming.

I found these fun round PLAYING CARDS at my local op shop. How cool are these I can see some fun stacked clusters or graphic pattern papers. Both packs are ideal for your personal scrapbooking or design projects.
