Card Crafters: Tee-rrific

Today I created another template for this cute golfing kitย  Hole in One from Chelle’s Creations who happens to be one of this months guest designers at The Digi Chick. Such a great kit for the golfers in your life.

Again I went the hybrid scrapbooking paper crafting route with this one. The template pieces were printed on 1 sheet of premium printer paper. All layers were cut out and edges inked, then adhered to the background. Golf bag is popped up on some 3d tape for extra dimension. The ribbon is real!

This would make a cool card for a grad that is into golf as well.

We had some tough news from home to deal with today. Sad too. So I apologise but no template for today. There will be some word art up probably on Sunday so check back for that if you like. ๐Ÿ™‚ย  Thanks for understanding.

Thinking of You – SC288

This weeks card sketch at Split Coast Stampers was a nice one with circles. I really liked the layout and knew it would be perfect for this digital card quote and kit from As You Wish Designs (you can find them at Shabby Pickle).

I layered up the printed digital kit, added a flower, button, ink and bling, raising the quote and embellishment on 3d mounting tape. This would make a great card for many occasions and one I am glad to add to my stash.

It’s funny how when you make something, like the word art sentiment stamps that I am giving away, how you suddenly start to notice these things around. Obviously a lot of digital scrapbooking word art would fit the category.

Then just this week while blog hopping from a thread at Split Coast Stampers I came across a couple of sites that sell “digital stamps”. They are fun too! Some of them the cutesy type ones you would traditionally find on a rubber ink stamp. I never even knew that kind of thing existed.

See what happens when you go and explore a different arena of paper crafting!

Sentiment Stamps

This week because I played with a sketch by someone else I have not done a template that can be a give away. However I did not want to leave you without a gift for dropping by.

As I have been assessing my current stamps it became apparent that there are not many sentiments. A lot of cutesy type images from about 10-15 years ago and a few new ones purchased just recently. That needs to be remedied!

Then it struck me I could make some digitally. So that is what I did today. Made a digital Sentiment Stamp ๐Ÿ™‚

The stamps are shown larger than print size which is small enough to fit on 2.5 – 3 inch base. They come in PDf ready for printing on your choice of background as well as jpeg, png, and a brush set. If you are using the digital files you can of course resize them to suit your needs. They make great word art too!

Something else that happened at the same time was learning how to print on my offcut scrap pieces of cardstock. I really really like the River Linen Paper from Red River Papers and always keep my scraps. Sometimes the small ones are used for little shapes or for stamping on with real stamps.

However I had some bigger pieces and after figuring out the drop down sizes menu on the advanced section of the printer setup screen I was about to “user define” what size cardstock I wanted it printed on.No more wasted scraps!

This piece is about 2.9″ x 5.5 inches. So those odd bits of paper that you like are worth hanging on to if your printer has this capability. You might want to check it out. ๐Ÿ™‚

A little inking, a little 3d mounting tape and you have a nice sentiment stamp ready to put on a card.

So would you like it?

Ok – you talked me into it then!

Here is the link.

This one is up indefinitely so if you know anyone who could use it please send them this way. Leave me a comment please of you do download it.


Sharing some Digital Work

Today’s layout uses some of the cute new baby products available over at The Digi Chick. There are so many lovely kits to choose from in so many different styles that it was very hard to pick one to start working with. Mind you pink always grabs me and this one eventually won out.

Plus who could resist that sweet little baby bassinet and booties?


This sweet baby of mine is the Munchkin girl we thought may have had the chicken pox this last week. It now appears as though it is just a post viral rash from the virus she has the week before. I don’t know whether to be relieved or not. It would have been nice to have it out of the way.

I have used Sweet Peach by Danielle Engebretson for the layout basis and some very cute word art fromย  Wordz Baby by Dawn Inskip.

The design is my own this time and I must admit it was fun coming up with something that was me instead of a template or sketch. Then again – some of my favourite layouts were done with templates. Isn’t it wonderful to have the variety your own work brings and yet also be able to work with others ideas as well!

Artisitic Nature

I got to play around with some new release products from The Digi Chick this week. This layout is the result. I have been wanting to scrap this pick about Miss S and her love of art. I think it needs another page with journaling too.


I have used The Art in Me – don’t you think that is kinda appropriate for this layout’s theme. It is from Tracie Stroud. I have also used Word Art 2 from Kristen Rice of K studio and Petite Borders by Dawn Inskip.

All delicious! ๐Ÿ™‚
