Birthday girl

Today’s card is a delightful CAS design made from a Victoria Nelson Digikit.  The image was printed twice so that the character’s dress and umbrella could be decoupaged.

Music loving teen

A CAS and masculine card today!  I made this using Srif Craft Artist 2 and printed out the guitar and headphones twice so I could decoupage them.

Jasper is 12!

I is my middle child’s birthday today and I have made him a card using a digikit called RockStar from Daily Trail.  The cards is flat and has a co-ordinatinting insert.  The font came from a different digikit.  I love the simplicity of this card as my boy – like most 12-year-olds is not into fussy cards.

Welsh birthday card

Today I am sharing a card with a Happy Birthday greeting in Welsh.  I have used a digiskit available from Daisy Trail called National Flags.  The card is a 6 x 6″ card with dimensional elements, assembled in Craft Artist 2.

My new Christmas book

This is my new Christmas book, for lists, gifts and cards at Chriatmas!  I bought a plain A4 book with a kraft coloured cover.   I designed a page using Serif CraftArtist 2 and Polkadoodles Home for Christmas CD-Rom.  I put the church as central, as for me it is what Christmas is all about.  But I have incuded Santa with his sleigh, a heart to symbolise love, 2 international girls, lots of gifts and last but not least, some snow-covered mushroom houses. Why?  Because I like them!  The fonts used are from my computer.

I cut a length of old ribbon into small pieces and ties a piece to one in three of the binding coils.   The other bits of ribbon and lace are from my stash and he bell used to adorn the neck of a chocolate reindeer!

Creative Fingers challenge – anything goes

This week’s challenge at Creative fingers is sponsored by:

I have made a Christmas card, by duplicating and flipping the digistamp and using it to frame a sentiment typed out in Serif CraftArtist 2.  After being coloured with Promarkers, the topper was cut with a decorative Spellbinder die.  It was mounted up using free papers which came with one of the magazines from Intermediate Media last year.

I have a rubber stamp with this sentiment and I use it and reproduce it in so many of my cards as I love it.

Cheerful Stamp Pad Challenge – All that Jazz

For my second All That Jazz challenge post I have made a CAS card using the grand piano and added my own sentiment.  Perfect for the piano teacher!

I have had Craft Artist 2 for some time now but I am learning to do different things every time I use it.To get this effct of the border, I used to layer 2 squares but today I discovered that it is far easier to use just one square and make a thick boder around the shape!


Today’s challenges: – monochrome

You can enter the Cheerful Stamp Pad Jazz/Music challenge up until Sunday.

Yours in crafting,
