I’m Loving You

Pin It

It’s an exciting day over at the Meljen’s Designs blog and shop. Melissa is releasing a bunch of new digital stamps and pre-colored digital images for February in the Meljen’s Designs store today. (I’ll give you a peek below.)

Although I enjoy coloring, there are time when I love using precolored images. They are so quick and easy to use when you have a time crunch or want to make several cards quickly. I decided to use some of the new pre-colored digis to make several Valentine’s Day cards for teachers and grandparents. I stayed with the same design on all of them to make the paper & die cutting easier. (My card design is loosely based on sketch MFTWSC18.) First I’ll show you a look at all the cards and then a closer look at each of them.

As promised, here is a look at all the new goodies Melissa is putting into the shop today.

The theme for the new Meljen’s Designs challenge is “Loving You”. Perfect for Valentine’s day. You can link up your card, see the challenge rules and be inspired by the DT’s creations on the Meljen’s Designs blog.

Thank you for stopping by!

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.

Pumpkin Spice–What Time Is It?

Hello! Today is my day to post on the Pumpkin Spice blog. My card fits our current challenge, “Time”. We would love to see your project with either a word or element that implies time. I have to admit I was a bit stumped by the challenge at first. I could only think of clocks and watches, but I didn’t have any stamps that would fit. I finally had my “Ah ha!” moment and thought about looking up a quote about time. I found this quote from John Lennon that I really liked and the idea for my card grew from there and these beautiful Pebbles Inc. papers.I love these new papers from Pebbles, Inc. The colors are so bright and cheery, I had to use them to chase away the spring gloom we have right now. I love each of the 18 patterns (2 pages of each) included in the 6x6 pad.I hope this helps to inspire you to think out of the box and create a project for our “Time” challenge. You can link up your project and find the challenge details HERE. Thank you for stopping by! I hope you have a fabulous …
