I’ve been so busy at work and will probably start posting only twice a day 😦 However, since I didn’t post one this morning, I’ll be posting a new card design tonight! So far, I’ve tried to keep it in a pattern of 1 design, 1 tip/trick, and 1 freebie that all fit within a theme, we’ll see if I can keep that up.
I’ve also noticed that I should probably stick with subjects that are popular right now (are you surprised that Fall and Orange make the top of the list?) so you might see more fall/Halloween related posts from me soon!
Since I went to the State Fair last night, I didn’t have time to prepare a new card. So instead (in going with the current Baby theme) I’ve created a pennant banner on a 12×12, 300dpi, gray/white striped digital paper in two flavors ( Blue Baby Boy and Pink Baby Girl). I will, at some point upload a .gif version of both pennant banners featuring a transparent background for use on your own papers but since it’s past my usual bedtime on work days that will come on another day 🙂
Make your own sweet treats for a baby shower celebration!
What you will need:
Pink (or Blue) and white marshmallows
Pink (or Blue) food coloring
Pink (or Blue) polka dot straw
Wilton Sugar Pearl beads
Pink (or Blue) ribbon
Get some pink (or blue) and white marshmallows, dip them in pink (or blue) royal icing, plug onto a pink (or blue) polka dot straw, swirl in a plate of white edible beads to add a bit of glamor and charm. Then we are done. To give out as a baby shower gift…wrap these beautiful marshmallow pops up and tie with a pink (or blue) ribbon. How cute! – cupcakepedia.com
I know, a total switch from all my Halloween posts but it isn’t going to be almost Halloween forever, ya know! So trying to move away from my excitement for all things haunted, I present these Bottle & Binky cards.
So at night, when I have to get my actual crafting supplies cleaned up, I turn to the digital world. It is so nice to be able to continue my creativity in a less messy space. The product of tonight’s “down time” is this 12×12 digital scrapbooking paper (300 dpi, .png format). Again, since I seem to be on a roll for Halloween, this pattern features a few of the many faces seen on a carved pumpkin. This freebie is for personal use only 🙂
