    Tuesday - Cards @Scrapbook Blessings Club

    Hi there friends in the crafting world, Carolyn here to share a couple Christmas cards I recently made...


    Christmas Village Church from here.
    The image was stamped on white card stock, and than die cut with a oval die.  Each scallop on the mat I applied Liquid Pearls and attached a ribbon on bottom.  Place it over a snow-flaked embossed mat and all attached to white card stock base. Sentiment from Stampin! Up Teeny Tiny Words.  Glitter glue applied to roof of the church; and I used Wink of Stella glitter pens to color in the stained glass window, plus the windows.  Door is also colored in with Wink of Stella glitter pen.

    Photo download from a search on Internet that I printed out, and applied glitter/stickles to areas in photo that had glittered.  And created a easel card using my Silhouette Cameo.  I believe the photo was printed out and than cut out with my Brother's Scan 'n Cut machine.  

    Thank you for stopping by to visit with me and happy crafting to you all

    Garden Digital Scrapbook Layout

    Hi, I am going to share my Garden Digital Scrapbook Layout using Annabelle's Garden Baskets from ClipArt From the Heart by, I believe by Cheryl Seslar.  This file of Annabelle's Garden Baskets is not in the store, but this file:  Sitting Sadie Garden Thyme CFTH: 

    is close to the file I requested.  I love the images in the Annabelle's Garden Baskets and will work with them more as I have time.  

    Here is what I done with Image #3 from the set...

    12 x 12 size
    png and /or jpeg
    3600 x 3600
    Supplies/software used:
    • I used both Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 and 4.0.3 for creating this layout. was used for creating .png format of the flower cluster, frame and garden bench.
    • The garden ben, frame and paint splatter are considered brushes from PSE software, which loaded onto a page within the software, and than saved as a jpeg.  Brought it over to to change to .png format (makes it easier to place on the layout page.
    • The 'Relax' sentiment tag from Digital Scrapbooking at Pixal Scrapper.
    • Image #3 from the Annabelle's Garden Basket set
    I can use this creation either for a layout or as a card to send to someone to cheer them up or say thank you.
    Thank you for stopping by to visit with me; and take a moment and go over to  ClipArt From the Heart and check out their store.  There is several designers so you can check out what all are doing.
