I'm not sure if this issue is just mine, but the tutorial links for numbers 3-9 are not working. It takes me to a Blogger page with the error "your current account does not have access to view this page."

Great roundup - I am excited to try out some of these (especially the mini photo book and the kitchen colorants)!
